    Do you have any suggestions when going to PP that would identify one as a protester?

  2. Victoria Kindler says:

    I emailed Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters about defunding Planned Parenthood. They emailed me back in favor of Planned Parenthood.I emailed Stabenow back that women’s health services can be found at local health clinics and that I did not want one penny of my tax dollars going to support Planned Parenthood. I also shared my belief with Ms. Stabenow, that Democrats stand up for Planned Parenthood as this despicable organization contributes to their campaign coffers. You might also tell fellow Christians to email companies that support Planned Parenthood and ask them to let these companies know they will no longer use their products or services if they continue If they continue to contribute to Planned Parenthood.

    Thanks for getting the word out!

  3. It is high time that we LCMS Lutherans make our voices heard in a BIG way on this horrible, barbaric practice. The only people who can condone the blatant murder of millions of unborn babies must have their heads in the ground because it is all too obvious with all the media coverage about what’s happening in these clinics. Let’s get out there in great numbers and make some noise on Saturday and praise the Lord for his grace at the same time.

  4. Evelyn Weide says:

    I’m praying that all other churches will get behind us to stop this atrocity.

  5. Joanne Nedwick says:

    Amen. I plan to protest on Sarurday, and I’ve written my representatives several weeks ago. I’ll write again. I pray that God will forgive and have mercy on our country for the murder of these innocent children.

  6. James Kaufman says:

    I still remember what I felt on Jan. 22 1973 when Roe v Wade became history. I felt sick for my country. I still feel the same today and pray to see an end to the “silent holocaust” in my lifetime.

  7. David Whan says:

    So will the Synod stop taking Thrivent cash now? Will she encourage our parishes to stop partnering with Thrivent Financial given that organizations history and stance on abortion? Looking for leadership from you all….

  8. Matthew Dent says:

    I’m somewhat surprised that one of the recommendations was not to remove our own complicity in this horror by cutting ties with a certain “Christian” (formerly “Lutheran”) financial services firm that insists on continuing to hamstring pro-life organizations in order to remain “neutral” on this important issue.

  9. Carl Vehse says:

    Other than the imprecatory 3rd and 7th petitions in the Lord’s Prayer, as exposited in the Large Catechism, will the Missouri Synod publish for its member congregations any imprecatory prayers to God to crush the demonic actions of Planned Parenthood and other murderous butchershops of persons in the womb.

    1. LCMS Church Information Center says:

      Thank you for your post. This prayer was provided with the Let Us Pray prayers available on the website at

      For an end to the brutal slaughter of children for profit in this land, for the grace of repentance for all who have participated in this or support and encourage it, for the final closing of every so-called clinic where the little ones are carved up and their body parts sold, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

      1. Carl Vehse says:

        Don’t forget to pray that justice be carried out in our nation. Otherwise, it’s a prayer that we all choose the right color of socks to wear.

    Does thrivent now or have they in the past ever donated to planned parenthood??

  11. John Lehenbauer says:

    Prompted by the title of this article, our Houston County Right to Life Group in Middle Georgia is looking into renting a billboard along I-75 near our town that says “It is Time to End Abortion”. The cost for such a sign is $300 per month . . .small compared to the tens of thousands of people who pass through Georgia daily on the way to Florida each year.

    Question? Does anyone know of a good pro-life artist willing to help us with the design of a such a sign? We want the design to be simple . . .probably with the words “It is Time to End Abortion” as large as possible. Attractive. Eye-catching.

    Thanks. It is time to end abortion.
