#74: How to Be Pro-Life—David Bereit

#74: How to Be Pro-Life—David Bereit

You may have heard of 40 Days For Life, and you may have heard of its founder and former CEO David Bereit. This interview dives into his story, what inspired him to get directly involved in pro-life activism, and into the reasons why he entered the Catholic Church this past Easter. Bereit is a pro at communicating the pro-life message with reason, balance, and passion.

So many people, even pro-lifers, don’t have a clear idea of what abortion is—the different methods, the longterm emotional effect on the mother’s health, and on the dads involved. As Bereit explains, being pro-life is about opposing abortion but it’s also about so much more.

In this interview, you will learn:

  • The secret ingredient in your approach that can mean the difference between an abortion and a life saved.
  • The specific reasons why the timeless teachings of the Catholic Church won Bereit over.
  • The originating incident that led to the founding of 40 Days For Life.
  • Why abortion will never be defeated until we tell the truth about what it does to baby and mother.
  • Why it’s vital that we link arms with people of other faiths, or no faith, to form a non-violent army of people committed to ending abortion and to healing moms and dads whos chose it.

Question of the week:

Why have pro-lifers been labeled as unhinged or violent by the media, when over 99% of violent acts (including abortion itself) stem from groups invested in keep abortions legal?
