FOXNEWS.com – A prayer campaign launched by a California Planned Parenthood affiliate has angered pro-life groups who claim the counter-campaign mocks their own “40 Days for Life” effort.
Officials at Six Rivers Planned Parenthood (SRPP) in Eureka, Calif., launched “40 Days of Prayer” last month and has offered up daily prayers for pregnant women and clinicians who perform abortions.
“Today we pray for women for whom pregnancy is not good news, that they know they have choices,” read the prayer for Day 1.
Day 18 offers prayers for “staff at abortion clinics around the nation,” while Day 38 calls for a “cloud of gentleness to surround” every abortion facility in the country.
The campaign, according to Liberty Counsel, an Orlando-based pro-life litigation group, is another “desperate attempt” to regain positive public attention and funding by mimicking a pro-life campaign.
“Planned Parenthood’s prayer crusade is an attempt to mock and marginalize the highly effective ’40 Days for Life,’ which has unified half a million voices for the cause and saved at least 5,838 lives,” the organization said in a statement. “As a direct result of this prayer event, 22 abortion clinics have closed and 69 doctors have stopped performing abortion.”
