March 25, 2020
We are so excited to have joining us;
Shawn Carney, Co-Founder of 40 Days For Life, whose role was played out by Jared Lotz in the movie, "Unplanned" .
We are also very excited to have joining us;
Dr. Haywood Robinson, former abortionist who encountered a conversion.
That's what it's all about, RIGHT?
Conversion of Hearts and Minds.
Shawn began in the pro-life movement in college as a volunteer and after college was asked to be the Executive Director of the organization he volunteered for, the Coalition for Life which is made up of over 60 churches.
Shawn’s passion for local pro-life ministry developed when he orchestrated the purchase and remodeling of a new office next door to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility to offer free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds, and loving support to women.
In 2004, Shawn helped to lead the first-ever 40 Days for Life campaign in College Station, Texas. This breakthrough initiative – made up of 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, the round-the-clock peaceful vigil outside a local abortion center, and grassroots door-to-door outreach – dropped local abortion numbers by 28%.
Beginning in 2007, Shawn helped to expand 40 Days for Life as a national and then international movement. Today, 40 Days for Life has been done in 816 cities in all 50 states and 56 countries. His efforts have helped mobilize more than 750,000 pro-life volunteers over the last 12 years.
