Church Will Hold Worship Services Outside Planned Parenthood Centers to Save Babies

A church dedicated to praying outside Planned Parenthood abortion facilities wants to expand in northwestern states where killing unborn babies remains legal post-Roe v. Wade.

The Seattle Times reports The Church at Planned Parenthood began in Spokane, Washington, with Pastor Ken Peters, and has grown to about a dozen locations across the country.

Every month, as many as 700 pro-lifers attend the peaceful, family-friendly worship services outside Planned Parenthood abortion facilities to pray and ask God to end the violence of abortion against unborn babies, organizers told the newspaper.

Currently, the church holds services in Moses Lake, Spokane and Everett, Washington, and Salem, Oregon, but Peters said they plan to expand to more cities in the two states. The governors of Washington and Oregon both have been working to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court abortion ruling.

Peters said they would like to begin services in Yakima, Pullman and Wenatchee, where Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are advertising abortions to women in Idaho and other pro-life states.

In Spokane, Pastor Danny Green, of Family of Faith Community Church, leads the monthly service outside the city Planned Parenthood. Green and his wife felt called to pro-life ministry after they aborted their unborn baby while they were dating in high school – a decision that continues to grieve them, according to the report.

Although Planned Parenthood and abortion activists have accused the church of hostility, Peters said their gatherings are peaceful “church services with grandmas and grandpas and little kids.”

“We fight spiritually, not physically,” he told the newspaper.

Planned Parenthood and Legal Voice even filed a lawsuit against the church in 2020. They claimed the pro-life Christians were bullying patients and staff and interfering with Planned Parenthood’s work, and a judge later blocked the church from holding services outside during the abortion facility’s business hours.

However, leaders of The Church at Planned Parenthood said they are not protesters. Their purpose is to worship God and pray for repentance “of our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust.”

Spokane police said they have not had problems with the pro-life church, the Spokesman Review reported previously. And the new report from the Seattle Times confirmed with police that Church at Planned Parenthood services in other locations also have been peaceful and law-abiding.

The Church at Planned Parenthood describes itself as a “gathering of Christians for the worship of God and corporate prayer for repentance for this nation, repentance for the apathetic church, and repentance for our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust,” according to its website.

Since the church formed in 2018, abortion activists have been trying to restrict its life-saving work. In 2020, the Spokane City Council voted to expand a noise ordinance outside abortion facilities and health care facilities in the city. Pro-life leaders believe the vote directly targeted pro-life sidewalk counselors and the Church at Planned Parenthood.

In an interview with Prayer Link, a CBN talk show, Peters said he staunchly believes that the pro-life movement will succeed in the battle to protect the defenseless.

“The Bible says that hell will not prevail against the church, but I think if the church does not engage, then hell has free reign. So, what we’re doing is taking church right to the gates of hell knowing that we will win,” he said.
