“The Beginning of the End of Abortion” to Greater Cincinnati
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, September 7, 2017 (Cincinnati, OH) – Shawn Carney, the president of the peaceful, prayerful, effective 40 Days for Life project, will tell the story of this groundbreaking effort in Cincinnati on Wednesday, September 27th. Carney will be speaking at the Kickoff Rally, which is set for 7:00 pm in front of Planned Parenthood, 2314 Auburn Avenue in Cincinnati.
“People in the Greater Cincinnati area have made extraordinary sacrifices to expose the abortion industry and to protect pre-born children and their mothers from abortion,” Carney said.
“I’m honored to be able to join these folks in prayer. Their efforts illustrate why we’re seeing historic changes – more mothers choosing life, more abortion workers experiencing conversions and leaving the abortion industry, and more abortion centers closing their doors for good.”
“We are tremendously pleased that Shawn will be here to support our 40 Days for Life effort,” said Mary Clark, campaign director for the local 40 Days for Life campaign in Cincinnati. “He’s an energetic, enthusiastic speaker and we know he will be an inspiration. Shawn is traveling to Cincinnati from Houston, Texas especially to help commemorate Cincinnati’s 10th year of taking part in 40 Days for Life campaigns so we are excited that he asked to join us.”
Greater Cincinnati is one of 375 communities around the world conducting simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from September 27 through November 5.
40 Days for Life is an intensive campaign that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and grassroots educational outreach. Since 40 Days for Life began, 13,305 mothers have chosen life for their children; 154 abortion workers have quit their jobs; and 89 abortion centers where 40 Days for Life vigils have been held have gone out of business.
Carney led the first-ever 40 Days for Life campaign outside a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Bryan/College Station, Texas in 2004 and has helped coordinate 19 national 40 Days for Life campaigns that have engaged communities coast to coast – and internationally.
Planned Parenthood recognized the effectiveness of Carney’s efforts when it labeled Bryan/College Station “the most anti-choice place in the nation.” Following more than a dozen 40 Days for Life campaigns at that location, Planned Parenthood closed that abortion center in the summer of 2013.
