Peaceful, Prayerful, Effective Presence at Abortion Site
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, September 12, 2018 (Cincinnati, OH): From 40 Days for Life Cincinnati Campaign Leader Mary Clark
The kickoff rally for the 2018 Fall 40 Days for Life campaign will be held in front of the Planned Parenthood facility, 2314 Auburn Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45219, on Tuesday, September 25 at 7:00 p.m. Speakers include Fr. Ryan Ruiz, Assistant Professor at Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary, as well as members of the local core team.
“We truly pray that this 40 Days for Life campaign will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in the Greater Cincinnati area,” says Mary Clark, who coordinates the local effort. “We start this effort by drawing members of the community together to share the vision of 40 Days for Life and to pray for God’s blessings upon us. It is time to focus attention on the harm abortion has done to our city.”
Cincinnati is one of 415 cities from coast to coast conducting simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from September 26 through November 4. 40 Days for Life is a peaceful, intensive campaign that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, 40 days of peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and 40 days of grassroots educational outreach. The 40-day time frame is drawn from examples throughout Biblical history where God brought about world-changing transformation in 40-day periods.
“This will mark the start of 40 days of prayer and fasting, with special attention to prayer in the public right-of-way outside the abortion facility at Planned Parenthood, 2314 Auburn Avenue, Cincinnati, as well as various types of community outreach. We look forward to seeing what kind of transformation God will bring about in our city,” said Joan Rios, core team member.
