Day 9: Billboards and national media coverage!

With more campaigns than ever in 415 cities…

…we are seeing more media coverage than ever! (And our billboard campaign is causing a stir. More on that in a moment.)

First, here is a recent two-part interview I did for EWTN:

In addition to my EWTN interview, we’ve seen a record amount of national media coverage. Click here to view a sampling of 40 Days for Life media coverage.

Now, let’s get to the billboards that are turning heads.

Wisconsin

Wisconsin is hosting eight 40 Days for Life campaigns this fall. Two of them, Madison and Green Bay, conduct around-the-clock 24/7 vigils that never miss an hour of coverage.

Those cities also happen to be home to college and professional football teams that draw tens of thousands of visitors to town each game-day weekend throughout the fall. These factors made Wisconsin the perfect place to test a pilot billboard program promoting local 40 Days for Life campaigns.

These billboards have been posted on major highways–as well as right over Green Bay’s Planned Parenthood center–and will be seen millions of times this fall.

Boston, Massachusetts

The 40 Days for Life leadership team in Boston wanted to post a billboard informing post-abortive mothers of resources for healing.

A major national media conglomerate censored the message, refusing to display the words “Hurting from your abortion? Find hope and healing.”

After some heated negotiations with a second billboard company, the message was posted–just in time for the start of the campaign.

Scripture and Prayer

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. —John 1:14

Heavenly Father, I thank you for your love and saving grace in Christ Jesus. Help us to realize every day the great blessing we have in our Savior. I pray that we will rise every morning with excitement and zeal, looking forward to walking another day in your footsteps fully knowing that you continue to dwell among us.
