Largest 40 Days for Life International Campaign!

(Cincinnati, OH) - With all the turmoil taking place, this fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign could have turned out to be the smallest since the campaign began in 2007, but no! This is the largest 40 Days for Life international campaign in history with prayer taking place in 588 locations in thirty-six countries throughout the world.

Read the headquarters report on this great news at https://www.40daysforlife.com/blogs.aspx. Scroll down to the Day 5 blog entitled “Day 5: Record turnouts!” which features a photo taken at our Cincinnati kickoff rally with Sue Thayer, Director of Outreach for 40 Days for Life and former Planned Parenthood center manager from Iowa. I received a note from Sue confirming that she experienced good turnouts at her other Ohio vigil stops also.

But most importantly, the good news doesn’t stop there. We believe a baby was saved in Cincinnati on the first day of our local 40 Days for Life campaign! Click on the link to hear Cincinnati Right to Life Director Meg DeBlase’s telling of what one of our vigil participants experienced while praying at Planned Parenthood on that day:  https://www.facebook.com/CincinnatiRightToLife/videos/2796261923989233 The video also explains the “Blessing Bag” which was given to the couple that left Planned Parenthood within two minutes of receiving their gift.
