David Bereit, the founder of 40 Days for Life, spoke at two Pro-Life Wisconsin events last week, along with leading prayer at two vigils. Image: David with the PLW staff.
On Thursday, April 26, David spoke to 250 people in Madison. Bishop Morlino said the opening prayer, and Dr. Nancy Fredericks was presented with an award for her courage in exposing the Madison Surgery Center’s plans to perform late-term abortions.
On Friday, April 27, a prayer vigil was held at Affiliated Medical Services in Milwaukee, one of several 40 Days for Life sites across the state. Please pray for a young couple, 18 weeks pregnant, whom pro-lifers sidewalk counseled there.
Saturday, April 28 was draft day for the Packers in Green Bay…. But dozens of pro-lifers turned out to pray with David Bereit in Green Bay, another 40 Days for Life site (image, above). Sidewalk counselors were able to assist a pregnant woman in need of help as well!
That evening, at our Annual Spring Awards Dinner, Rep. Andre Jacque was presented with our “Legislator of the Year” award and Jim Ball, leader of 40 Days for Life in Green Bay, was presented with our “Activist of the Year” award.
Thank you to all our supporters, steadfast prayer warriors, attendees, volunteers and all those who join us in advocating for the right to life for all.
