’40 DAYS FOR LIFE’ SAVES BABIES, PLANNED PARENTHOOD URGES #SHOUTYOURABORTION
While 40 Days for Life claims that, as of Monday, it has saved 41 babies from abortion, Planned Parenthood is urging its clients to tweet about how great abortion is. Pro-lifers are countering that campaign with their own tweets.
Shawn Carney, director of 40 Days for Life – the largest internationally coordinated pro-life campaign — says that after only six days into its mobilization effort, 41 babies have been spared from abortion. The campaign uses its tools of prayer, community outreach on street corners, and peaceful vigils outside abortion clinics.
Also, a pro-life symposium was held during the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia this past weekend, an event that welcomed Pope Francis.
National director of Priests for Life, Father Frank Pavone, said during the symposium the pro-life movement “will succeed in abolishing abortion.”
“Moreover, the family can be fully alive only if it is healed from the wounds of abortion, which impacts not only the child, mom, and dad, but every other family member as well,” he added. “That is why our symposium had such a strong focus on healing after abortion, highlighting the ministries of Rachel’s Vineyard and Silent No More, as well as the initiative Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion.”
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood, currently under investigation by Congress after the exposure of its sales of body parts of aborted babies, is supporting a #ShoutYourAbortioncampaign on Twitter.
Maybe there should be a #shoutyouradoption campaign instead.
