Bishops lead abortion-clinic vigils in Michigan, Florida

Catholic World News - September 13, 2010

Archbishop Allen Vigneron of Detroit led a prayer vigil outside an abortion clinic in Westland, Michigan, on September 11. The vigil began with Mass, with the archbishop presiding, then continued with an hour of prayer at the clinic before concluding with Eucharistic adoration and Benediction.

In Florida, Bishop Frank Dewane of Venice led a September 13 protest outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Naples.

    All that remains now is for Archbishop Vigneron to tell pro-abort Catholic Gov. Granholm that "pro-abortion" is NOT a Catholic position and she needs to reconsider Communion, and tell the assoc. pastor of her home parish that his defense of "choice" as a truly Catholic concept was full of error, unless the choice to kill or steal is authentically Catholic too. Finally, he can ask the pastor of that same parish to apologize for calling the police on the pro-life demonstrators outside his church.
