Why I hate exceptions in pro-life laws but understand why I must support bills like the Pain-Capable Act.
The Story Of How God Inspired The Launch Of 40 Days For Life, Bound4Life and Stand True’s, Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity Simultaneously.
Without Planning It, Grassroots Pro-Life Prayer Groups Launched at Same Time – Say Leaders in First Joint Interview Ten years ago, a burning desire to be a voice for the unborn was ignited in three leaders – in Texas, Virginia and Colorado. Having known each other for years, they rarely see one another aside from national pro-life gatherings. What would happen if we started a dialogue together? For the first time, David Bereit of 40 Days for Life, Matt Lockett of Bound4LIFE and Bryan Kemper of Stand True share their common yet distinct experiences – and reveal a striking timeline of how public prayer advocacy has thrived in the grassroots pro-life movement. Marisa Kwaning discusses pro-life prayer with David Bereit and Matt Lockett (Photo: Josh Shepherd) A Son’s Prayer in the Hospital Summer of 2004 found David Bereit (pronounced BE-right) frustrated in College Station, Texas.

I went to the hospital and my dad wanted to pray about the ending of abortion. The reason why? Years before, he had gotten a girl pregnant out of wedlock, he had been scared, he pressured her to schedule an abortion… but she stood him up on the day of the appointment. He got so angry at her then. Yet eventually they ended up getting married.’“ “Laying on that hospital bed, his dad told him, ‘Son, that woman was your mother and that child I wanted to throw away to cover up my sin was you.’ The man who suggested the idea of what became Read More »
