Event description
Annual benefit dinner for Hope Pregnancy Center. Keynote Speaker, Shawn Carney, who started the first 40 Days for Life campaign in 2004.

About this Event

Shawn began in the pro-life movement in college as a volunteer and after college was asked to be the Executive Director of the organization he volunteered for, the Coalition for Life which is made up of over 60 churches.

Shawn’s passion for local pro-life ministry developed when he orchestrated the purchase and remodeling of a new office next door to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility to offer free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds, and loving support to women.

In 2004, Shawn helped to lead the first-ever 40 Days for Life campaign in College Station, Texas. This breakthrough initiative – made up of 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, the round-the-clock peaceful vigil outside a local abortion center, and grassroots door-to-door outreach – dropped local abortion numbers by 28%.

Beginning in 2007, Shawn helped to expand 40 Days for Life as a national and then international movement. Today, 40 Days for Life has been done in 816 cities in all 50 states and 56 countries. His efforts have helped mobilize more than 750,000 pro-life volunteers over the last 12 years.

40 Days for Life has confirmed reports of over 15,000 mothers choosing life and 186 abortion center workers who have has conversions and left their jobs, including former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson who walked into Shawn’s office just next door to her abortion facility. Shawn and his wife are portrayed in the 2019 film, Unplanned, which tells the beautiful story of Abby Johnson’s conversion.
