On Oct. 24, dozens of anti-abortion Christians are planning to gather outside the new Planned Parenthood building on Indiana to dedicate a church plant that will operate on the sidewalks in front of the center, according to numerous posts circulating on social media.

According to the posts, members from various Spokane churches have signed up to regularly minister to those seeking Planned Parenthood services, and the sponsoring church is Covenant Church Spokane.

The October event, which will be at 5:45 p.m. (Oct. 24), is based on Church Arise: Operation Save Spokane, which took place in August and was part of a national movement. There, about 60-70 protestors picketed the facility and handed out anti-LGBT literature, according to the Spokesman-Review.

The August event and upcoming October event are organized by the Abolitionist Society of Eastern Washington, which aims to abolish abortion.

Honestly, it’d be fine so long as they could be trusted to observe the difference between ‘ministry’ and harassment. Experience indicates that they cannot.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
