The 40 Days for Life Fall Campaign 2020  |  Wednesday, September 23rd to Sunday, November 1st

A group of eight (including our own Clare O’Brien) had been praying at the 40 Days for Life vigil for about an hour when a car leaving the abortion center parking lot stopped. The young woman in the car was smiling from ear to ear as she told the people on the sidewalk, I’m  keeping my baby! Only God knows whether the baby’s life would have been saved if no one had been there, said John Noall, the Cleveland campaign director. What we do know is that the show-up rate for scheduled abortions declines dramatically when prayer warriors are on the sidewalks. What we do know is God hears and answers our prayers and babies are saved!

The 40 Days for Life Fall Campaign 2020 Kick-Off 

More than 100 people launched the 40 Days for Life campaign in Cleveland. In addition to a talk from Sue Thayer, who went from a longtime Planned Parenthood manager to the 40 Days for Life outreach director, attendees heard from area pastors and pro-life leaders and glorified God with praise and worship music.
“Great rally,” said John Noall, the Cleveland campaign leader. “[The speakers] were all terrific and helped kick off the 2020 fall campaign with a BANG!”
