Shawn Carney, president and CEO of 40 Days for Life, said the “pro-life side” is the “only side discussing science” in the abortion debate, offering his remarks in a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow ahead of 2019’s March for Life, scheduled for January 18 in Washington, DC.
Carney explained his organization’s origins.
Days - Life - Prayer - Vigils - Abortion
“40 Days for Life started in 2007 and we hold peaceful prayer vigils outside of abortion facilities across America,” said Carney. “We’re now in 50 countries. We do a campaign in the fall and a campaign in the spring, and this started in College Station, Texas.”

It’s professional, and we take it very seriously because abortion is a serious business. Planned parenthood certainly takes it seriously. We need to be organized at the grassroots level, and that was one of the criticisms from the ACLU is that we are highly organized at the grassroots level.”
