40 Days for Life Update – Week 5

March 24, 2023
Contact: Mary Clark
Cincinnati Campaign Leader

What a great pro-life tri-state area.  This is the second last week of the spring/Lenten campaign and the parish coverage really picks up from now to the last day of the campaign when we have three churches covering some or all of the hours with our Closing Prayer Hour of Thanksgiving sprinkled in the middle!

As you are well aware, babies do not stop being aborted between campaigns, so if you feel compelled to keep up some prayer presence after the end of the campaign, you are welcome to continue to come to pray once a month or more often if you want.  Over the years we have had a number of individuals who started out with 40 Days for Life who felt the tug to continue to stand in prayer or even to reach out to those entering Planned Parenthood by offering whatever help they can whether in the form of pregnancy center information or pamphlets describing the steps in abortion pill reversal.

There are regular sidewalk advocates present at Planned Parenthood each weekday during certain hours, so you would not be alone.  Contact me and I’ll let you know the days and hours when you can join those who keep up a pro-life presence throughout the year.

The pro-life movement in Ohio also needs you to spread the word to family and friends to NOT SIGN any petition which might be offered to you to put on the November ballot an amendment to the Ohio constitution to enshrine abortion through all nine months of gestation for any reason.  Contact Cincinnati Right to Life to volunteer in whatever way you can to make sure everyone knows about this amendment which would also abolish parental rights to even be informed of abortion procedures or gender transition done on their minor children.

SAVE THE DATE – Sunday, April 2 at 2pm.  Meet at Holy Name Church, 2422 Auburn Avenue, Cincinnati, 45219, for our Closing Day Prayer of Thanksgiving for this campaign.  See Local Events on the website, www.40daysforlife.com/cincinnati for details.
