Friday Night Midpoint Rally – With Fr. Cyril Whitaker
March 13, 2015 (Cincinnati, OH) –
From Mary Clark, Cincinnati 40 Days for Life campaign director
Vigils at Planned Parenthood, 2314 Auburn Ave., Clifton
Please make every effort to come to this Friday’s evening group prayer vigil/midpoint rally & celebration at 7pm in front of Planned Parenthood, 2314 Auburn Ave. Included in this Friday’s prayer hour will be a simple appreciation of Respect Life Coordinators, Pregnancy Center Workers, Pregnancy Center Counselors, Sidewalk Counselors and 40 Days for Life Church & Group Coordinators past and present.
We know how dedicated these people are to bringing about a Culture of Life and would like for all of you to help us honor them at the Midpoint of the Spring 40 Days for Life campaign. We hope that this will be an opportunity for you to renew your commitment to the pro-life cause and especially to 40 Days for Life which has done so much good throughout the world in seven years.
We still need all of you to help us increase our number of public vigil participants from now until the end of the campaign on March 29th. If you have never come to pray with us before, this is the time to find out what it is all about.
Fr. Cyril Whitaker, SJ, will be leading prayers and speaking. He is a dynamic speaker and will be encouraging to you in your pro-life commitment – especially your commitment to participation in the second half of our Spring 40 Days for Life campaign.
We look forward to the blessings God will send us as we keep faithful to our pro-life commitment.

Although we do not know how many babies are saved as a result of our prayers and witness, we know that a baby was saved last week! On Tuesday when there were several people praying from St. Gertrude’s and St. Maximilian Kolbe parishes, a young woman approached the abortion mill. By the grace of God she took the information which was offered from the sidewalk educator.
On Friday when she returned for additional services, I reached out to her and she said she already had the information. Within an hour she came out. She let me know that she changed her mind and decided to keep her baby! At that time, there were again people praying on the grassy area from St. Susanna’s parish as well as others.
Sadly, the abortion clinic does chemical abortions in Sharonville. The woman is given an injection following her first consult/ultrasound visit. She is then given tablets to be self administered at home with a total of three doses. In most cases she aborts her baby at home within 2-4 days. She is then to return to the abortion mill to have another ultrasound to confirm that the abortion was complete. Very sad!
From what we understand, the cost of this is close to what an early term surgical abortion costs. The abortion clinic continues to make a lot of money even though it is not doing surgical abortions.
40 Days for Life continues through Palm Sunday. The campaign runs seven days a week from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. I know that we were off to a tough start with the cold, snowy winter but spring is upon us and the weather is getting better. Please consider coming to Sharonville to pray. This is a good offering for Lent.
