There is a facility owned by a notorious abortionist … where a 40 Days for Life vigil is going on right now … that could be on the verge of closing! This man pioneered the brutal partial-birth abortion technique. Here’s the story.
“I was there yesterday with my son and all of his classmates praying for this center to close,” said one prayer volunteer in Sharonville. “Our prayers may be answered!”
Martin Haskell is one of the most infamous abortionists in America, and he owns this abortion location – just outside Cincinnati – which has been the site of five 40 Days for Life campaigns.
But now the Ohio health department has affirmed a recommendation that the facility’s license be revoked. The state requires such facilities to have an agreement with a local hospital to handle emergency cases, and Haskell doesn’t have one.
As of yesterday, the abortion business remained open. We’re told that should not be the case much longer. We’ll keep watching. Please keep praying!
About 125 people turned out for the midpoint rally outside Planned Parenthood in Charlottesville – including David Bereit, our national director – and me! It was a great event.
Rush hour traffic on the busy street out front backed up at the light at the corner – where the drivers couldn’t miss the big banner announcing that 672 babies died from abortion at this facility last year.
One prayer volunteer started keeping track of drivers’ reactions … and in a short time tallied 27 happy honks and only 6 angry honks.
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS
The sidewalk outside an abortion business called the Center for Women’s Health is the site of the first-ever 40 Days for Life vigil at that facility. “This clinic is in a nice, business/professional section of our city,” said Wendy, the local director. And few people knew it was even there!
“Many of the employees from surrounding buildings ask, almost in a whisper, ‘Is there an abortion clinic nearby?’ They are surprised to find out it’s just next door to their buildings.” And word is spreading. “This is big for our city,” Wendy said.
The Overland Park team isn’t aware of any saved babies yet. “But we’ve had some of the employees at the Center for Women’s Health wave back … which is a success to us.”
