PRO-LIFE WISCONSIN WELCOMES LEADERS OF “40 DAYS FOR LIFE,” A LOCAL LIFE SAVING Mission

Milwaukee, WI -  On Tuesday, March 19 at 3:30 PM Steve Karlen, 40 Days for Life Campaign Director, and Chris Davis, 40 Days for Life Campaign Strategist, will be on tour in Wisconsin at 1428 N. Farwell Ave, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53202.


Their Milwaukee visit is part of a two day Wisconsin tour in Kenosha, Sheboygan, and Stevens Point. “40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families,” the mission states. Since the Spring campaign started on March 6, 2019, pro-life individuals have kept vigil day and night at local abortion facilities. Through their peaceful presence, 92 women have chosen life for their babies rather than abortion.

Steve Karlen, current Campaign Director, was a volunteer leader with the 40 Days for Life campaign in Madison, Wisconsin through Pro-Life Wisconsin's affiliate, Vigil for Life, before he found himself at the center of a nationwide controversy. The health system at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin Madison, was secretly preparing to open a late-term abortion center on campus and groups across the state looked to him for leadership. After nearly a year and a half, the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics abandoned its plan to open an abortion facility, citing Steve and the pro-life community in Dane County as the reason for the decision.

Chris Davis, Campaign Strategist, has led sixteen 40 Days for Life campaigns since 2010. He has witnessed more than 100 babies saved in his community, at least one abortion worker leave the abortion industry, and the permanent closure of an abortion facility.  He is eager to bring a peaceful message of life and hope as Campaign Strategist on the 40 Days for Life headquarters team.


“Pro-Life Wisconsin welcomes Steve Karlen and Chris Davis to the State of Wisconsin. We are immensely grateful to the 40 Days for Life Campaign and all dedicated volunteers who partake in this local life saving effort.”
