From 40 Days for Life International Campaign Director Shawn Carney:
Last night 21,613 people jammed onto the "Unplanned"
webcast to hear former Planned Parenthood clinic
director Abby Johnson reveal what she experienced
inside the abortion business -- and why she resigned
her job and joined the pro-life movement.
The positive comments are still pouring in!
We know some people had a hard time getting on due to
the high demand, so we rushed to get the recording of
the event online for you. You can listen now at:
The webcast served as a sneak preview for TODAY'S
release of Abby's tell-all book, "Unplanned," which
is being published in an historic arrangement between
Tyndale House, Focus on the Family, and Ignatius
Press, and endorsed by dozens of prominent leaders
and respected organizations.
You can download and read Chapter 1 of "Unplanned,"
along with many of the endorsements, for FREE (as a
PDF document) at:
You won't be the same after reading that chapter!
During the webcast we announced that Ignatius Press
has published a special edition of "Unplanned" with
exclusive bonus content, including:
* Foreword by Fr. Frank Pavone, national director
of Priests for Life
* Introduction by David Bereit, our 40 Days for Life
national director, on the power that prayer played
in Abby's conversion (you will LOVE this!)
* Publisher's Note from Fr. Joseph Fessio, student
and friend of Pope Benedict XVI, and founder of
Ignatius Press, on the monumental impact that he
expects to see due to Abby's book
To make things even better for the webcast, Ignatius
Press slashed prices on the "Unplanned" special
edition by 35% -- their very best pricing!
Unfortunately, the flood of orders -- combined with
what appears to be a vicious, orchestrated "denial of
service" attack by those who don't want you reading
Abby's book -- caused the Ignatius web server to
crash during our webcast, and many people could not
get their copies of "Unplanned."
But are we going to let abortion advocates win the
Instead, let's use this opportunity to send Planned
Parenthood and the abortion industry a message.
DAY ONE is the most important day of sales for a new
book. Let's rally together TODAY to set sales records
and send "Unplanned" up the bestseller charts on the
first day it is available.
That will send shock waves through the abortion
business, and will get the attention of the secular
media -- helping to spread this message far and wide!
Now, let me be totally transparent ... 40 Days for
Life is not being compensated a single nickel for
promoting this book. We just believe in it 100% and
want to share it with everyone we know!
With that said, Ignatius Press worked late into the
night fortifying their web servers -- and now they're
ready! Go grab copies of "Unplanned" for yourself,
friends, family members, people at church, and other
But make sure to do it TODAY, if at all possible, so
it counts toward DAY ONE totals.
Let's make this a tipping point moment in our efforts
to end abortion!
