New Planned Parenthood in St. Paul Opens Today

December 20, 2011

Embracing Life

Yes, it’s true…The new $16 million dollar abortion facility in St. Paul is open today. Pray that mothers and couples in a crisis pregnancy turn away from this place and seek pro-life assistance. Pray for the pregnancy help centers and the sidewalk counselors;

New Planned Parenthood in St. Paul

that they receive the gift of patience, knowledge, strength and perseverance. And pray that the staff at this mega clinic has a change of heart.

According to Steven Ertelt of Lifenews.com, more than a third of all abortions in Minnesota–approximately 4,000 a year–will occur at this site. (Please read the whole article.)

Earlier this year, Brian Gibson of Pro-Life Action Ministries told a busload of people praying at the construction site: (Please read my blog about this topic.)

Planned Parenthood claims that this new facility, which is larger than a half city-block, is NOT about abortion. However, in all the years PP was in Highland, they were performing abortions during the first trimester. But unfortunately, this past summer they have expanded into doing abortions into the second trimester.

Prayer for the Hopeless Unborn

Heavenly Father, in Your love for us, protect against the wickedness of the devil, those helpless little ones to whom You have given the gift of life.

Touch with pity the hearts of those women pregnant in our world today who are not thinking of motherhood. Help them to see that the child they carry is made in Your image – as well as theirs – made for eternal life. Dispel their fear and selfishness and give them true womanly hearts to love their babies and give them birth and all the needed care that a mother alone can give.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen

 

Update: On December 21–the second day that this PP site was open–a baby was saved through the efforts of sidewalk counseling (according to Brian Gibson at Pro-Life Action ministries). Hallelujah!

About Kathy Schneeman

After graduating from The College of St. Thomas, I taught at Nativity in St. Paul until our oldest was just about born in the classroom (What a great lesson on life that would have been for my students!) I then became a stay-at-home-mom while teaching religious education classes and working very part time at UST. Recently, I served as the Archdiocese's Life Coordinator in the Office for Marriage, Family and Life until twins arrived (I was almost 43!) When I have a few minutes of quiet time, I like to run, eat chocolates, scones and Mexican food (that's why I run), read, and have a beverage with my husband at night. We have a whopping nine kids (yes...same husband and same wife; we get that question a lot!) and we attend St. Joseph's in West St. Paul--where we first met when we were in grade school.
