I hope you will join me and take a moment to pray for Planned Parenthood clinics, for all the brave people who work there and for those who seek its services.
The struggle for women and girls to control their own bodies is ever more needed, and yet ever more contested with political pandering, incitements to violence and even acts of violence.
The anti-abortion crowd (I refuse to dignify them with the term ‘pro-life’) have taken to Twitter to praise the shooter at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic.
This is hatred of women, and of those who help women with needed reproductive services.
This is really hatred of God, as 1 John 4:20 makes crystal clear: “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.”
#IStandWithPP because I love God and my sisters and brothers who work against enormous odds to provide help to women and girls.
God bless them.
