When we decided to plan a 50-state, 125-city bus tour to 40 Days for Life vigils across the United States, we knew that one group in particular would not like it — America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.
No one has been more critical of 40 Days for Life than Planned Parenthood … and once we announced our largest campaign ever — 367 cities and the bus tour — they began making plans to protest the peaceful vigils.
The first Planned Parenthood-sponsored event will be in New York tomorrow.
Our team will stop to pray with 40 Days for Life volunteers in Poughkeepsie and Newburgh tomorrow morning … and Planned Parenthood wants its people to show up in pink shirts to support “Planned Parenthood’s mission … and services.”

It has been difficult for Planned Parenthood to generate support.
In addition to performing more than 300,000 abortions every year, Planned Parenthood is now under investigation for trafficking and selling baby body parts. They’ve been defunded by many states across the country and have lost millions in donations as a result of scandals.
Planned Parenthood’s brand is at an all-time low … and more than 140 of the 367 prayer vigils this 40 Days for Life campaign are taking place outside of Planned Parenthood centers.
Find the campaign nearest you and go pray!
And if you’re anywhere near Poughkeepsie or Newburgh tomorrow morning … come meet the UNITED bus and show Planned Parenthood that people joined in prayer are more powerful than pink shirts.
