CINCINNATI, OH, October 29, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — Two leading Catholic bishops will join prolifers in prayer at Planned Parenthood's abortion headquarters in Cincinnati this Friday and Saturday.
Archbishop Dennis Schnurr will take part in the 40 Days for Life fall campaign this Friday, October 30, from seven to eight p.m., at 2314 Auburn Avenue. And Bishop Joseph Binzer will celebrate Mass at Holy Name Church, 2448 Auburn Avenue, 8 a.m. this Saturday the 31st, and then will lead a Rosary walk and prayer at Planned Parenthood down the block.
After the Center for Medical Progress released a series of videos exposing Planned Parenthood officials talking about selling aborted babies, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr released a public statement, saying the videos “are chilling and appalling. They display a callous disrespect for human life.”
“I urge Catholics and all people of good will to write to their representatives in state and national government, asking them to stop the flow of your tax dollars to Planned Parenthood,” Archbishop Schnurr wrote. “The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has supported defunding for many years.”
The archbishop noted that Planned Parenthood received more than $1.3 million in state funds from Ohio and $500 million in federal funds in fiscal 2013-2014.
