Focus on the Family’s online See Life 2020 event garnered more than 170,000 views across multiple streaming services Saturday night and will continue to reach more as an on-demand video on YouTube and Facebook.
In addition, more than 160,000 have signed the accompanying #LoveEveryHeartBeat pledge at focusonthefamily.com/seelife, committing themselves to praying, supporting, encouraging, and sharing. And that number continues to rise.
“Thousands upon thousands of messages have been rolling in since Saturday evening, extolling the effort and expressing an unwavering commitment to stand with us in our pursuit to help change hearts and minds regarding abortion by showing the world the baby,” reported Focus on the Family President Jim Daly in his blog.
Hosted by former NFL star Benjamin Watson and March for Life President Jeanne Mancini, See Life 2020 is Focus on the Family’s highly anticipated sequel to “Alive from New York,” the pro-life celebration that drew nearly 20,000 people into New York City’s Time Square.
See Life 2020 exposes the lies and pain of abortion and celebrates the miraculous wonder of life. It features powerful pro-life stories of hope, compelling Christian commentary, and soul-stirring music from award-winning artists, as well as a 4D ultrasound of a baby, offering a window into the reality of life in the womb. Among those interviewed for the event were high-profile figures including Candace Owens, Abby Johnson, Alveda King, and Lila Rose.
“A lot of these young women who head to an abortion clinic are not doing this because they believe it’s murder. They are doing it because they believe it’s a clump of cells,” said author and pro-life commentator Candace Owens.
“This is a movement for everyone. We all have a responsibility and an opportunity to show the truth about abortion (and) the beauty of human life,” added Lila Rose, Founder and President of Live Action.
“A woman has a right to choose what she does with her body; the baby is not her body,” noted Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
