Prolife leader's perspective changed by prolife work in Michigan

The Catholic News Agency ran a story about how 40 Days for Life director David Bereit had his perspective changed by an abortion clinic in Grand Rapids that was converted into a prolife agency, LIFE International.

The building was rented in 1994 by an abortionist who turned it into “the largest abortion facility in western Michigan,” David Bereit told CNA on June 12.

The National Director of the 40 Days for Life campaign, Bereit learned the history of the building in 2004, during a visit which took place only days after the final abortions had been performed in the building.

“That experience taught me that with God, all things are possible,” even “reclaiming an abortion facility and helping it to become, once again, a place that honors God and protects and promotes life,” he said.
