Praying for Abortion

Each day, Planned Parenthood suggests a prayer, for example:

· “We give thanks for the doctors who provide quality abortion care.”

· We pray for a cloud of gentleness to surround every abortion facility.”

· We pray for all the staff at abortion clinics around the nation. May they be daily confirmed in the sacred care that they offer women.”

Some of the prayers, like those above, are for the abortionists. Others are for all “women to access . . . abortion,” and one is to “give thanks and celebrate that abortion is still safe and legal.”

Still other prayers are against pro-life advocates. They pray that women on the way to have an abortion would be “shielded” from the lifesaving message of pro-life sidewalk counselors and “give thanks for abortion escorts who guide women safely through the hostile gauntlets of protesters.” In another, “we pray for women who have been made afraid of their own power [of choice, i.e. abortion] by their religion. May they learn to reject fear and live bravely.”

One of the most outrageous of these pro-abortion prayers actually urges people to “pray for the families we’ve chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.” What about the babies who weren’t “chosen”?

All Planned Parenthood and Faith Aloud can do is rationalize the taking of another human’s life under the guise of prayer.

But apparently, these prayers are being used by the entire abortion industry. Faith Aloud even wrote us after we at the ACLJ initially exposed Planned Parenthood’s prayer guide to clarify, “Independent abortion providers (non-Planned Parenthood facilities) have been using these prayers for years.”

I came across this attitudebelief during the second 40 Days for Life vigil here in Halifax. A young woman drove her car very fast up to the curb, got out and shouted "what are you doing here?" She was furious that we were holding a prayer vigil for the end of abortion. She said to me "don't you know the babies go back to heaven and they return in another pregnancy?" I said "no they don't". She repeated it louder and I again replied "no they don't". At this point, she shook her fist at me and said "the spirit world is going to know about this". There is a real element of the demonic in abortion and I don't doubt that there are some curses being cast on pro-lifers. All the more proof that this battle is a spiritual one.
