This week 300 members of the groups Operation Save America and Abolish Human Abortion have descended on New Orleans for OSA’s annual gathering and to remind the pro-abortion world, “No justice, no peace.”
Holding prayer meetings by night and prayer vigils by day, the pro-life/abolitionist activists have been busy – protesting two abortion clinics, a Planned Parenthood construction site, the homes of two abortionists (Mary Gardner and Roshanda Dean), the day care business of an abortion clinic manager (yes, you read that right), a pro-abortion church, and more. I can’t keep up. They also held a wake for an aborted baby.
The abortion crowd has responded by sending “[h]undreds of residents, students, and pro-choice volunteers… to support doctors, clinics, and patients,” according to Ms. Magazine.
So if you follow the news, you know the home of the Mardi Gras has been a different kind of wild this week.
In the midst of the mayhem there has been at least one moment of comedic relief, when New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu issued a Certificate of Recognition to OSA leader Rev. Flip Benham for “Outstanding service to the City of New Orleans, which he later said was given “in error” and rescinded.
A Los Angeles Times writer is asking, “Where’s the outrage?” among conservatives after OSA/AHA disrupted the Sunday church service of New Orleans’ United Universalist Church, a denomination she admits is “among the most liberal of organized religions,” i.e., radically and inexplicably pro-abortion.
The church’s pastor accused pro-life activists of “terroriz[ing] children,” even as she and her church support tearing them limb from limb. You won’t get any condemnation from me for holding their blasphemous feet to the fire while there’s still time to repent.
Pro-lifers spotlighted another disgusting contradiction when they held a protest yesterday at Brown Bear Child Care Center, owned by Javonne Turner, who runs Delta Abortion Clinic on the side, believe it or not. Parents need to know their children are being watched by a child killer…
Also at this particular OSA gathering, Flip Benham handed over the reigns of leadership to Rusty Thomas. I’ll forever be indebted to these two stalwarts for holding a prayer vigil in front of Christ Hospital when news broke it was committing live birth abortions. I pray for more of their boldness.
For an example of pro-abortion revulsion at this week’s OSA/AHA activities in New Orleans, watch MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s shocked and appalled segment from last night.
