“Today we pray for all the staff at abortion clinics around the nation. May they be daily confirmed in the sacred care that they offer women.”
This is not a satirical prayer. This is the actual prayer of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.
Planned Parenthood has recently put out a pro-abortion prayer guide, 40 Days of Prayer Supporting Women Everywhere, encouraging abortion supporters everywhere to offer prayers of “thanks for abortion providers.”
As Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel, has long said, Planned Parenthood worships at the altar of abortion. Now, here is their prayer guide.
The Planned Parenthood prayer guide calls for prayer for everything from “better access to all forms of birth control” to the pro-abortion “counselors in abortion clinics” who give “wise guidance.”
It goes on to pray that women would be “shielded” from the lifesaving message of prolife advocates on their way to commit an abortion.
One day’s suggested prayer is to “pray for the families we’ve chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.” Think about that for a minute . . . “the families we’ve chosen”? What about those children who weren’t “chosen”?
Of course, Planned Parenthood and the group they partnered with to write these prayers, Faith Aloud, cannot answer this question, nor do they actually even attempt to debunk the claim that abortion is murder.
Faith Aloud merely states, “When you hear something over and over, like “abortion is murder”, it can get into your head—like a commercial. But if you really believed that abortion was the same as murder you probably wouldn’t even be considering it.” The only solace they can provide is that “in real life things are not black and white.”
Yet, tellingly, they admit that aborted babies are “our children—even those we decide not to bring into the world.”
Planned Parenthood’s prayer guide and their partner Faith Aloud ’s spiritual advice on abortion merely rationalize the taking of a human life; they do not provide any spiritual, much less Biblical, justification for abortion.
It is the only thing you can do when you have convinced yourself that unborn babies are not human beings who enjoy the fundamental human right to life and protection under the law.
Today, the ACLJ filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court asking it to intervene in a critically important First Amendment free speech case on behalf of three California crisis pregnancy centers (“CPCs”). In October of 2015, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the so-called “
The ACLJ’s pro-life legal, policy, and government affairs teams continues to work with state legislatures around the country to craft common-sense pro-life legislation.

We are on the cusp of tremendous victories for the American People. First, seven years after the enactment of pro-abortion ObamaCare, it has clearly failed in a devastating fashion. Premiums have skyrocketed, regulations have exploded, and - most importantly – options for healthcare continue to...
Careful, Planned Parenthood, your true purpose is showing. Pro-life Members of Congress have put forward a new health care proposal – the American Health Care Act (“AHCA”) – the ObamaCare repeal reconciliation bill currently under consideration. A significant provision in the proposed bill (right...
