40 Days for Life: Unmasked is part of a larger project from Abortion Access Front (AAF) called Hypocrites Unmasked. The anti-abortion movement is a hydra of dangerous, hypocritical factions, each with its own unique characteristics. So AAF created Hypocrites Unmasked to break them down, so folks can learn what sets each faction apart, the terrifying tactics they use, and the influence each group wields in their own communities and nationally, with politicians on the local, state, and federal level. With each organization we “unmask” you will learn about their history,
their mission, see videos of their harassment and see firsthand how
their tactics affect patients, providers and access to reproductive
40 Days For Life: Unmasked” is dedicated to exposing the mission, tactics and influence of the anti-abortion Christian extremist organization 40 Days For Life.
We track the anti-abortion extremist movement throughout the year, and when they hold events, we organize calls to action to counter them with truth and humor, to raise awareness about the harm they cause, to help protect clinics from their harassment, and to hold the politicians who promote their dangerous beliefs accountable.
But you know what? This “kinder, gentler” act is BS. There is no right way to oppress. There is only oppression.
TWICE a year, once for the duration of Lent and then again in the fall, 40 Days for Life coordinates 40 days of massive gatherings outside of hundreds of Planned Parenthoods and independent clinics across the country. They give local organizers resources to hold “non-stop, round-the-clock prayer vigils,” meaning protesters sign up for shifts to harass patients and clinic staff all day every day. (All while fasting!)

ABOUT ABORTION ACCESS FRONT
AAF is a team of comedians, writers, and producers that uses humor to destigmatize abortion and expose the extremist anti-choice forces working to destroy access to reproductive rights in all 50 states. We do the job that the media doesn’t, creating provocative and hilarious videos and social media content that educates people about the pervasive, discriminatory abortion laws that profoundly and disproportionately impact the poor and people of color. Another crucial part of AAF’s mission is to support and raise awareness about independent abortion providers. These clinics bear the brunt of anti-abortion legislation and harassment.
