The film’s producer and director, Ante Caljkusic, also president of 40 Days for Life Croatia, along with Krunoslav Puskar, regional coordinator of the Croatian campaign, will be present at the screenings.

40 Days for Life is held twice a year and designed to maintain a peaceful, public prayer vigil from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. outside an abortion center in Downtown Pittsburgh.
Groups from local houses of worship provide a witness to the injustice of abortion to passers-by, clinic workers and abortion-bound clients.
