Various commentators argue that these direct attacks on the pro-life movement only serve to swell our numbers and bolster our conviction. I hope that this is true.
David Bereit, founder of the 40 Days for Life campaign, told LifeSiteNews that the prayers were a response to the devastating impact of the 40 Days for Life campaign on the abortion industry. He said:
“Some say that ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,’ but when that imitation is being used to promote the killing of innocent children, we are anything but flattered...Planned Parenthood has stooped to a new low by exploiting pastors and churches to ‘celebrate’ the slaughter of babies made in God’s image and likeness ... They certainly wouldn’t be doing this if 40 Days for Life wasn’t having a devastating impact on their abortion business!”In the spirit of using the pithy attacks of the pro-abortion movement to encourage pro-life activism I include below two speeches by David Bereit. In the video below David Bereit rightly reminds the gathered crowd that pro-life work is inspired by love and that we must continue to pray for those promoting a culture of death. I was disappointed not to be able to attend one of the events when he spoke in the UK prior to the recent 40 Days for Life campaigns, but am glad to see that there are so many excellent speeches of his online. They are both informative and inspiring.
