National 40 Days of Life campaign going international this year

In an issue of Lifenews.com:
The national 40 Days for Life campaign has mobilized thousands of pro-life advocates and reinvigorated hundreds of local pro-life groups. David Bereit, national director of 40 Days for Life, shared his enthusiasm on Monday with LifeNews.com. “As America approaches the 36th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that imposed abortion on our nation, pro-life advocates are launching the next wave of a unique pro-life campaign,” he said.
From February 25 until April 5, people will join together for 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.
The event includes 40 days of constant, peaceful vigil outside abortion facilities and Planned Parenthood offices and 40 days of intensive pro-life community outreach.
Although the event has been a success in the United States, Bereit says the campaign is going international this year with the hopes that the highly-energized and well-organized pro-life movement in the U.S. can help its colleagues in other nations experience the same success.
