On 40 Days for Life –
“40 Days for Life is also a time of anticipation of a day when God’s will be done, when this nation will restore the most fundamental right we have as human persons, that of life. For without life, “liberty and the pursuit of happiness” have no meaning…I thank you my brothers and sister in Christ for the light and life that you bring to the streets of San Antonio. Your faith illuminates the way to a tomorrow in which this nation will once again be a beacon of hope, renewed by its respect for each human person.” (Not given as an endorsement.

President, Crossing Over Ministries
"I hope and I pray deep in my heart that you will join us in this 40 days of prayer and fasting and help us overturn Roe v. Wade, because we didn't have a choice in the beginning with the Supreme Court justices -- they decided it for us."

Pastoral Director, Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Rachel's Vineyard Ministries
"Abortion will end when local communities say it will end -- no sooner, and no later. We have the power to stop abortion, even while it remains legal. Now is the time to mobilize, sustained by prayer. Women and men who have lost children to abortion need to hear the witness of others who have experienced that pain and have found healing. 40 Days for Life is an opportunity for a local community to hear that witness. The men and women of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign are looking forward to participating and I strongly endorse the 40 Days for Life effort. I look forward to promoting it nationwide and participating in it in many communities."
Executive Director, Students for Life of America
"I am a huge supporter of 40 Days for Life. This campaign is exactly what the pro-life movement has been waiting for. 40 Days for Life will prepare pro-life activists across the country to end abortion in our lifetimes. The end is near for legalized abortion on demand, and 40 Days for Life is leading the charge."
PEGGY HARTSHORN, Ph.D.
President, Heartbeat International
"The powerful magnifying glass of 40 Days for Life focuses a searing light on abortion. Fasting and praying with 40 Days for Life unifies pro-life energies and illuminates us with grace in our efforts to conquer the culture of death. I strongly encourage every person and organization that believes in the dignity of life to join the 40 Days for Life campaign to end abortion, restore families, and renew communities for life."
NOREEN JOHNSON, M.D.
Former Abortion Provider
"Without a doubt, you can be a part of a movement in your locale that will negatively impact the kingdom of darkness as it fuels the abortion holacaust. During the 40 Days for Life in my community, I witnessed an increase in the unity of the Body of Christ, a decrease in abortions and also an increase in volunteers working in various pro-life venues in our community. Come fast and pray with members of your community and join this global effort."
DR. SONNY FORAKER
Founder and Director, Pastors for Life
Pastor, First Baptist Church, Pearland, TX
"Pastors for Life believe in the spiritual strategy of prayer at the very doors of the abortion centers. Therefore, we wholeheartedly support the national 40 Days for Life! It's the desire of this campaign to seek God's favor with humility and contriteness of heart. Victory will come, not by might, nor by power, but by the Spirit of the Lord. That's why it is important to go to the abortion facilities and pray! The success of this campaign is based upon our faithfulness in obedience to God’s command."
President, Abortion Recovery International Network
"The benefits of participating in the 40 Days for Life Campaign are numerous. But the Abortion Recovery International Network chose to get involved, because the campaign believed in leading wounded women, men and family members into effective healing programs. ARIN is honored to be joining forces with the Campaign, to offer our abortion recovery efforts and affiliate services. We look forward to the incredible opportunity that lies ahead in sharing the forgiveness and mercy of our Heavenly Father with those wounded by abortion."
