Supporting abortion is unpatriotic

Praying at an abortion facility is done first out of love for God…

…but it is also done out of love of country.

That’s because every hour you spend saving lives on the sidewalk is an investment in the future of your country.

There’s simply no greater threat to our nation’s peace and prosperity than abortion.

On this week’s episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we count down the top five reasons abortion supporters are unpatriotic. To listen in, visit:

As Americans celebrate our country this 4th of July, we thank God that we live in a country that guarantees our freedom to defend abortion-vulnerable mothers and their babies.

Not every country’s citizens enjoy this freedom. But in the United States we have the ability–and the responsibility–to stand up for the least of our brothers and sisters. Let’s make the most of it.

Have a blessed and safe Independence Day!

Corporate America’s outrageous attack on women–PODCAST Season 4, Episode 26

Topics We Cover on this Episode

States across America are passing pro-life laws…and out-of-touch corporate executives are losing their minds.

While multinational media conglomerates threaten to pull business out of pro-life states, 180 CEOs issued a letter claiming that women need abortion to be equal.

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Matt Britton, and Steve Karlen talk about corporate America’s attack on pregnant mothers. We discuss:

  • Why does big business think women are inferior to men–unless they are stripped of their ability to bear life?
  • Are these corporate executives tacitly admitting they discriminate against working mothers?
  • Which social media giants are discriminating against pro-lifers?

We cover that–and much more–on this episode!

Over the last decade, the abortion industry has subtly changed the way it attempts to justify legal abortion. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Sue Thayer, and Steve Karlen discuss:

  • why the abortion industry’s rhetoric has changed

Less Milano, more Mary–PODCAST Season 4, Episode 22

Topics We Cover on this Episode

States across the country have introduced laws dramatically restricting or even banning abortion.

Led by actress Alyssa Milano, C-list Hollywood celebrities are losing their minds, calling for an economic boycott of Georgia and a “sex strike.” Milano’s demand for “bodily autonomy”–even at the cost of innocent human life–illustrates the harm of valuing self over service to others.

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Steve Karlen, and Matt Britton discuss Hollywood’s anger, what it says about the pro-abortion movement, and why following the Mother of Jesus’ example (“Let it be done to me according to Thy Will”) would make for a better and healthier society…

…though we do endorse Ms. Milano’s sex strike–at least outside of marriage.

Actress Alyssa Milano called for a #sexstrike in response to laws protecting #unborn children from #abortion. On this episode of the #40DaysforLife Podcast we break down Hollywood's hysterical reaction to #prolife legislation… Click To Tweet

Breaking down the Brian Sims train wreck–PODCAST Season 4, Episode 21

Topics We Cover on this Episode

Recently, Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims became a national embarrassment when he broadcast a video of himself berating an elderly 40 Days for Life participant as she prayed silently in front of Planned Parenthood. The verbal tirade made national headlines and led to calls for Rep. Sims to resign–all while thousands of pro-lifers responded with a prayer rally at the same Planned Parenthood.

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Steve Karlen, and Matt Britton review the most pathetic moments of the Sims saga:

  • Rep. Sims attacked a prayer warrior for her race–while insisting that she is racist.
  • The verbal onslaught lacked imagination, to say the least. (Sims used the word “shame” or a variant 35 times!)
  • The attack makes the unfounded assumption that pro-lifers don’t serve the poor and vulnerable after birth; they do!
  • Rep. Sims offered cash if his viewers would identify 40 Days for Life volunteers.
  • Rep. Sims, a man, attacked women for being at Planned Parenthood–the very critique he makes of pro-lifers.
  • His non-apology apology video was an epic failure!
  • After repeatedly accusing a 40 Days for Life volunteer of hiding (which she didn’t), Rep. Sims then set his Twitter page to private and refused to meet with constituents!
Rep. Brian Sims became a national disgrace after berating #prolife #40daysforlife volunteers praying to end #abortion. We review the 7 most pathetic moments in his bizarre rants. #prayforlife Click To Tweet
