As people across the U.S. mourn the tragic deaths following a shooting last Friday around a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood, some pro-abortion religious leaders are calling for “respect and dignity for every human being.”
But for Planned Parenthood and other abortion supporters, unborn babies don’t count as human beings.
The Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board released the ironic statement on Monday in response to the violence in Colorado Springs. According to the abortion business’s website, the statement says (emphasis mine):
In the wake of the violent assault on the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, our hearts go out to the victims and their families. We wish healing and comfort for the injured and grieving, and we give thanks for the first responders who protected and defended others in harm’s way. We stand with Planned Parenthood and its continued commitment to providing care in a safe, supportive environment that millions of people rely on and trust. And we call for an end to the violence and polarization that grips our nation — asking for all to demonstrate the will and wisdom to overcome hatred with hope, fear with trust, and violence with compassion and courage.
And so we pray to Holy God, known by many names: Help us to respond with compassion for all affected by the violence in Colorado Springs; to break down the walls that separate us, and that would deny respect and dignity to every human being in need of health care; to unite us in bonds of love; and to guide us through our sorrow and confusion so that we might remain strong in our resolve to accomplish your justice and peace on earth. Amen.
The pro-abortion clergy are right to recognize the tragic deaths of the three individuals gunned down on Friday and the injuries of nine more. Their lives were valuable. The violence by alleged shooter Robert L. Dear was wrong, horrific, and numerous pro-life groups have condemned it, too.
But there are more victims of violence being slaughtered every day by the group that they support – Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood abortion facilities, in the clergy group’s own words, “deny respect and dignity to every human being” when they abort more than 330,000 unborn babies every year in the U.S. Whether intentionally or not, abortion advocates fail to recognize that human beings are valuable from the moment of conception to natural death, and that pro-lifers are working to end violence against every human life, both born and unborn.
