Colorado Bishops call for day of prayer & penance in response to horrific actions of Planned Parenthood

Colorado Bishops


July 31, 2015
   
 

(DENVER, CO). Recently, the Center for Medical Progress issued reports on Planned Parenthood’s repulsive practice of offering the organs of aborted babies to researchers. One of the reports include a video of Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services casually discussing how their clinics extract the organs of aborted babies and make them available to researchers through procurement companies. One of the entities that has used a procurement company to purchase aborted baby organs is Colorado State University.

We call on all people of good will in Colorado and beyond to pray that those involved in research and medicine will fix their sights on recognizing the sacredness of life and refrain from putting human life at the service of science. A society can only be considered socially just if it protects the most vulnerable among us.

Colorado’s Catholic bishops are encouraging the clergy and faithful of the Archdiocese of Denver, the Diocese of Pueblo and the Diocese of Colorado Springs to observe Friday August 28, 2015 as a day of prayer and penance in response to Planned Parenthood’s horrific actions and all those involved in the procurement and use of aborted baby organs.

Some examples of prayer and penance are:

Attending Mass and receiving Holy Communion

Meditating on the Word of God

Spending time in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Praying the Holy Rosary

Reciting the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

Making the Way of the Cross

Fasting and abstaining from eating meat
