The hope-filled book the abortion industry does not want you to read.

What are people saying about The Beginning of the End of Abortion?

“This beautiful book shows that we can offer hope to women considering abortion, compassion to women who have an abortion, and love to those who work in the abortion industry. Read this, be inspired, and be part of the beginning of the end of abortion.”

Gov. Mike Huckabee

Fox News host, New York Times Bestselling Author

“These stories share the very best of America, and of how we can use our freedoms to offer genuine hope to those in need. The true stories in this book are living proof that the tide has turned on the abortion crisis.”

Eric Metaxas

New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

"The book you hold in your hands tells amazing stories of courage, dedication, perseverance, trust and godly love in a dark cultural war.

"There is a hideous plan from the enemy to rob our nation of a generation through abortion. But 40 Days for Life confronts it the way Jesus would: tenderly, without condemnation - by His redeeming presence. Shawn's stories are amazing God-stories.

"I dare you to read this book without weeping!"

Ruth Graham

Author of In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart

"A must read. Be inspired by the prayers, fasting, and courage of everyday saints who inspire and challenge us to unite for the sanctity of life and family.”

Alveda C. King

Evangelist, Civil Rights for The Unborn, niece of Martin L. King, Jr.

"The impressive impact of life-affirming outreach is most identifiable in the stories of the courageous people who stepped out in faith, in humility, and with fortitude. Shawn's book vividly weaves his own story with so many faithful, and fruitful, friends who compassionately responded to the call to help. These stories will fill every reader with confidence, faith, hope, and certainty that life will triumph through acts of selfless love and kind compassion."

Jor-El Godsey

President, Heartbeat International

"This book reminds me of what I told the 40 Days for Life founders when they came to me at the very beginning: Once this starts, it will ignite beyond our imagination. The ground is fertile! And now all these stories show how that has come to pass."

Fr. Frank Pavone

National Director, Priests for Life; President, National Pro-life Religious Council

"When we truly step out in faith, life does not get easier. It does, though, certainly get better and richer and more full of true living. Such is the reality reflected in these moving and encouraging stories brought to us by these dedicated and brave spiritual warriors. If you love life, read and be encouraged, and step out again in faith to be part of the Lord’s plan for a new culture of life!”

The Most Rev. Thomas Olmsted

Bishop of Phoenix, Author of Catholics in the Public Square and Into the Breach

"These stories represent the often unreported hope that we see in America and beyond. The written word and the movie screen are powerful ways to bring truth, love and mercy into a culture of death."

Cary Solomon & Chuck Konzelman

Writer and Producers of "God's Not Dead", Writers, Producers, and Directors of "Unplanned" the movie
