Largest-Ever Pro-Life Campaign Launching Worldwide; Director to Visit Four Participating Montana Cities



 Sept. 23, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- David Bereit, national director of 40 Days for Life, will meet with participants at all four Montana locations taking part in the 40 Days for Life campaign, which is being conducted from September 28 through November 6 in 301 locations around the globe.
