Officials at Six Rivers Planned Parenthood of Eureka, CA, launched a “40 Days of Prayer” “prayer campaign” in March that offers daily prayers for pregnant women and clinicians who perform abortions.
Naturally, the Progressives have their panties in a twist over it. Liberty Counsel, a pro-life…litigation group…is bellyaching that this is just a “desperate attempt” to garner publicity and funding by mocking pro-choicers.
They whine, for instance,
Planned Parenthood’s prayer crusade is an attempt to mock and marginalize the highly effective “40 Days for Life,” which has unified half a million voices for the cause and saved at least 5,838 lives….
Here’s Liberty Counsel founder Matthew Staver:
“Planned Parenthood’s ‘prayer’ campaign is offensive.”
I might think, “poor babies,” were the beef not so cynical.
As a commenter at Villainous Company puts it in a related venue,
Pro-choice? Most on the Left side of the aisle are extremely ANTI-CHOICE; do it their way or don’t do it. Applies to lifestyles (no conservatives, no big families, no religion), work (no traditional one-worker families), the environment (no industry, assumed to pollute without question, global warming), and so on. NO CHOICE ALLOWED which contradicts, interferes or denies leftist policy; no flexibility, even when the participants agree on what they want.
WE MUST OBEY or be criticized in every available arena….
