In response to Planned Parenthood’s intention to open a new killing center in Omaha, the local Archbishop, George Lucas, issued a statement in which he said, “Women and their unborn children deserve better than to suffer the violence of abortion. As a caring community, we can offer them a compassionate alternative. I invite any woman who might be considering abortion to turn first to the loving and supportive care of the pro-life pregnancy help centers.”
The Archbishop also indicated he would attend a prayer vigil at the location of the new mill. This is an example of the Church’s response to this ongoing abortion tragedy: we pray, we show up, we speak up, and we offer alternatives. Let’s pray for our bishops and all clergy, that they may continue to offer this example.
