EWTN aired a program yesterday intended to set Christians “on fire to peacefully work to end abortion."
The 30-minute documentary, called Being Human, focuses on ordinary people who are fighting abortion in their local communities through prayer and activism.
The program is intended to serve as a call to action for a national 40 Days for Life Campaign, which will take place across the country this fall.
The documentary, presented by Coalition for Life, features three pro-life volunteers: a businessman, a mother, and a college student.
Coalition for Life, a nonprofit group comprised of churches and individuals, was formed in 1998 when Planned Parenthood announced plans to build an abortion clinic in the Brazos Valley of Texas.
In the fall of 2004, the Brazos Valley Coalition for Life launched its first 40 Days for Life campaign -- a round-the-clock, 40-day vigil of prayer and fasting outside the local Planned Parenthood clinic.
The group says its effort led to a 28-percent drop in local abortion numbers that year and rejuvenated the pro-life community.
