The rain that followed us everywhere last week has left! It's been beautiful in Ohio.


We were blown away to find nearly 100 people of all ages and backgrounds out at 9:30 in the morning in Dayton. This abortion facility, like the one we stopped at in Sharonville, is run by Martin Haskell, who invented the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure.


Columbus, Ohio is the home of Heartbeat International, a network of more than 2,000 affiliated pregnancy centers around the world -- and a UNITED tour partner. Heartbeat International president Jor-El Godsey has joined a number of stops on the tour and talked about the critical role pregnancy centers play in ending abortion locally.

Even though the abortion center wasn't open, the owner came out to listen. She was joined by other abortion supporters, including one who took countless photos of the event.


We saw incredible support in Canton, Ohio -- not just from 40 Days for Life participants but from the community. The busy road in front of Planned Parenthood featured a seemingly non-stop series of car horns honking in support of the prayer volunteers.


Cleveland rocks! Even though the local baseball team was in the middle of an exciting playoff game, faithful people flooded the streets for our 40 Days for Life rally.

Renee, our leader in Painesville, shared Renee, our leader in Painesville, shared that following a loved one's abortion, she promised to never again be unsure of what to say to an abortion-minded woman.

John, who leads the Cleveland campaign, talked about how losing a child to abortion led him to get involved. He even retired early to spend more time working for the Lord.

One of Cleveland's abortion centers has closed, and there is just one to go before Cleveland is abortion free!
