New documentary to highlight 40 Days for Life pro-life campaign

.- A new documentary about the 40 Days for Life campaign, which involves educational outreach, personal prayer and fasting, and prayer vigils at abortion clinics, is scheduled to air on Friday. The program, titled “beingHUMAN: 40 Days for Life II,” will interview volunteers, national leaders, and former abortionists.

The documentary, which was filmed by the award winning director David Bereit, is the second in the beingHuman series and will help launch the Fall 40 Days for Life campaign.

The campaign is scheduled to last from September 24 through November 2.
David Bereit, the national campaign director of 40 Days for Life, described the new documentary in a press release.

“It focuses on the stories and successes that prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil have accomplished through 40 Days for Life campaigns that have now spread across the country and around the globe," said Bereit. "This show is a great opportunity to get people in communities across the nation involved in this initiative."

The first installment of the documentary, which was honored with a Telly Award, helped launch the first national 40 Days for Life campaign last year.

“It's an approach that has been successful in reducing abortion numbers and bringing more people into pro-life work,” Bereit said, adding that the campaign has had “significant responses” from communities interested in joining the campaign.

According to Bereit, the new installment of the documentary will air on EWTN on Friday at 6:30 pm Eastern Time.
