- Pro-Life Speaker, Fundraiser & Activist
- Author, Former CEO of 40 Days for Life


David became an outspoken pro-life advocate after Planned Parenthood announced plans to build an abortion clinic in his Texas town in 1998. He helped to start and build a local grassroots coalition that rallied 60 churches and thousands of people together and dramatically reduced abortions in the region. Planned Parenthood recognized the effectiveness of David's efforts when it labeled his town "the most anti-choice place in the nation." David led the first-ever 40 Days for Life campaign in College Station, Texas.

David moved to the Washington, D.C. area in 2005 where he served as executive director of American Life League and national director of Stop Planned Parenthood until being asked to lead the national 40 Days for Life campaign. His pro-life work has been featured in the media hundreds of times, including coverage on Fox News, HBO, ABC, NBC and CBS television stations, numerous radio programs, and in over 100 newspapers across the country including USA Today, The Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times.

David and his wife Margaret have two children, Claire and Patrick.

40 Days for Life


“When it comes to pregnancy resource centers, David “gets it.” He understands our role and our needs and can articulate that to an audience while sharing  his own testimony and position with 40 Days for Life. We highly recommend David and know he will encourage and inspire your staff and guests. Our evening was absolutely a “success,” as hearts were stirred, and people were moved to take action!"
-Alison Adams, A Woman's Concern

“David [Bereit] was terrific! He was relatable, dynamic and accessible. He was truly the right man for the event! What a blessing to have him here!”
-Tracy Ullrey, Pregnancy Center of Helena

"Your message definitely made an impact and inspired those attending to give generously and some even sacrificially. We were a bit concerned that attendance had dropped from last year's banquet. However, we prayed that the Lord would bring the right people to hear and receive the message of a Christ-centered, life-affirming ministry. The Lord answered our prayers and while attendance was down, giving was up by 50%. The glory belongs to the Lord and yet we get to enjoy his blessings.
-New Life Pregnancy Center

“David is an awesome speaker. We received more positive feedback from our attendees regarding his presentation than any other speaker we have had. He made you feel as if you were sitting in a family room and he was just sharing his heart and passion for CPCs and the clients who go there.”
-Crisis Pregnancy Center Of Central Arkansas

“Mr. Bereit is a phenomenal speaker for the Pro Life cause! He as a wealth of experience is extremely knowledgeable and yet is also very personable. When his presentation was over our guests felt they had a personal connection with him, and thus with our center as well. This connection not only increased our giving but also the awareness of what we are trying to accomplish and why we need all the help we can get!”
