Fr. Frank Pavone on Today’s Planned Parenthood Protests
The following guest post is by Fr. Frank Pavone:
Whether with prayer, protests or participation in other pro-life activities, now is the time to translate that sense of outrage into action! See my homily on this below. And Priests for Life is helping to lead the way! On August 22, we begin a campaign of eight days of fasting and prayer to end the evils of abortion and Planned Parenthood. Prayers for the national, interdenominational effort can be found at PrayerCampaign.org.
This effort, headed by Priests for Life now has 27 organizations co-sponsoring, with more to come. They are: Faith and Action; National Pro-life Religious Council; Gospel of Life Ministries; National Clergy Council; National Pro-life Center; Charismatic Episcopal Church for Life; National Institute of Family and Life Advocates; Presbyterians Pro-life; Catholics Called to Witness; Evangelical Church Alliance; Jill Stanek (JillStanek.com); Conservative Congregational Christian Conference; Pro-Life Action Ministries; LifeNews.com; Life Issues Institute; Americans United for Life; Day Gardner, National Black Pro-Life Union; Tubman Truth; Hispanics for Life; Justice Foundation; Citizens for a Pro-Life Society; Missouri Blacks for Life; Sidewalk Advocates for Life; LifeSiteNews.com; Life Coalition International; American Life League; Lutherans for Life.
Please encourage your pastor to mention this from the pulpit this weekend and during the upcoming week and share this news with all of your own contacts. PrayerCampaign.org has five unique prayers to be used on that day and each day through August 29. The prayers, available in English and Spanish, are for people of all faiths.
The prayer campaign begins on a day that will be marked by a coordinated nationwide protest outside Planned Parenthood facilities.
You are encouraged to join a local protest. See ProtestPP.com.
Priests for Life is a co-sponsor of this protest effort and members of our Pastoral Team will be at various protests across the Country. If you are in the area, please join them.
I will be speaking at the protest in New York City that starts at 9am.
