40 Days for Life national leader brings message of
‘the beginning of the end of abortion’ to Cincinnati

Cincinnati, Ohio – Former Planned Parenthood manager and current 40 Days for Life Director of Outreach Sue Thayer will share her story of transformation in Cincinnati on Sep[tember 20, 2020. Thayer will speak at the Kickoff Rally for the fall 40 Days for Life campaign, which is set for 1:00 PM on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood, 2314 Auburn Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio.

"40 Days for Life volunteers in Cincinnati have worked tirelessly for the cause of life. We know that prayers in front of an abortion facility save lives and change hearts. Around the world, we’ve seen expectant moms turn away from abortion facilities and choose life for their babies,” Thayer said. “Abortion workers like me are walking out of their jobs, and facilities are closing their doors forever. What a privilege to join the local 40 Days for Life volunteers!”

“We are very excited that Sue will be here to support and inspire our 40 Days for Life effort,” said Mary Clark, spokesperson for the local 40 Days for Life campaign in Cincinnati. “She speaks with transparency and passion, and her message will motivate the crowd.” In addition to Sue Thayer, prayers will be led by Father Ethan Moore, pastor of Holy Name Church, site of year-round weekly 8:00AM Saturday pro-life Mass and rosary procession to Planned Parenthood.

Cincinnati is one of 588 communities around the world conducting simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from September 23 through November 1.

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, over 17,000 mothers have chosen life for their children; more than 200 abortion workers have quit their jobs; and over 100 abortion centers where 40 Days for Life vigils have been held have gone out of business.

Thayer worked for nearly two decades at a Planned Parenthood facility in Storm Lake, Iowa. When the abortion giant began selling controversial and dangerous webcam abortion procedures, she spoke out and was fired. Thayer believed she was finally free of the abortion industry, but God had other plans. In 2011, she reluctantly signed up to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign in front of her former workplace. Shortly thereafter, the Planned Parenthood facility shuttered its doors.
