From the xanga (good lord, xanga) of a local Catholic youth group who will apparently be rosary-processing by Planned Parenthood this weekend when I do my monthly escort volunteer commitment..
Witness for Life – Young adults, joined by the the Sisters of Life gather
for Mass at Old St Patrick’s Cathedral (263 Mulberry St), Exposition of
the Blessed Sacrament follows, and people can either remain in the Church
to adore our Lord or attend the rosary procession to the local abortion
clinic Planned Parenthood.
Leaving aside their strategy of "annoy the abortion providers enough and they’ll just shut their doors" (and then what? Pregnant women who don’t want to be will just….decide suddenly they do have the willingness and resources to parent a child? There will be no more unprotected sex? GENIUS!)…. AND leaving aside the simple truth that for every patient seeking abortion, there are 3-5 patients who just want a gyno exam and some reproductive healthcare…..standing outside praying (and inevitably having confrontations with law-abiding citizens who aren’t trying to infringe on the free exercise of the rights of others) has to be one of the least effective pro-lifer maneuvers. Right up there with abstinence-only education.
