What started in the Brazos Valley is changing the world!

In 1998, Planned Parenthood opened the first abortion facility in the history of the Brazos Valley. In response, thousands of concerned community members joined together to form the Coalition for Life.

In 2004, the Coalition launched 40 Days for Life, an initiative of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil, and community outreach. 40 Days for Life has since grown into a worldwide movement, mobilizing 750,000 volunteers in 769 cities across 50 countries.

As a result, 15,235 babies’ lives have been saved from abortion, 186 workers have quit the abortion industry, and 99 abortion centers have closed – including the Planned Parenthood in Bryan!

On Thursday, February 21, you are invited to help expand this life-saving momentum by attending Benefit 2019 … right in the heart of Texas, where it all began.

Benefit 2019 speaker: Raymond Arroyo

Raymond Arroyo is an internationally known, award-winning journalist, producer, and New York Times Bestselling author. As founding News Director, Managing Editor and Lead Anchor for EWTN News, he is seen in more than 350 million homes on six continents each week and heard on more than 500 AM/FM affiliates and a stand alone Sirius channel throughout the US. Mr. Arroyo established EWTN News and The World Over Live in 1996, which he hosts from Washington DC each week.

Known for his penetrating interviews, Mr. Arroyo has interrogated the leading figures of the day. Highlights include: The first exclusive, sit down interview with Mel Gibson about his film, “The Passion of the Christ”; Mother Teresa of Calcutta; Placido Domingo; Presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump, a groundbreaking interview with comic legend, Jerry Lewis, and the first and only English interview with Pope Benedict XVI.

In addition to his work at EWTN, Mr. Arroyo has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN Headline News, Access Hollywood, The O’Reilly Factor, Erin Burnett Outfront, and the Laura Ingraham Show.

At Benefit 2019, you will also hear from the writers, producers, and directors of Unplanned, Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon.

Mr. Solomon and Mr. Konzelman are the writers and producers of  “God’s Not Dead” and “God’s Not Dead 2”. They believe in using the media for good and find their guidance in Hollywood through daily prayer. Their upcoming project “Unplanned” is based on the conversion of the Planned Parenthood manager, Abby Johnson, who managed the abortion facility where 40 Days for Life first began. That facility later closed and now serves as the headquarters of 40 Days for Life.
