Help pro-life heroes expose late-term abortion in D.C.: LifeFunder

NEW YORK (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-abortion activists packed together outside New York City’s historic St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral on Saturday to decry abortion restrictions and harass Catholics participating in the church’s monthly pro-life rosary procession.

In a clip that has since gone viral, one abortion advocate screamed that she was “killing the babies” and went on to simulate abortion using baby dolls in a graphic display.

The dozens of activists who gathered outside the 143-year-old Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Lower Manhattan confronted a group of pro-lifers who had assembled to take part in a first Saturday “Witness For Life” event consisting of Mass and a recitation of the rosary outside the nearby Planned Parenthood abortion facility, Fox News reported .

Video and photos show the pro-lifers standing on the steps of the church praying the rosary and singing the “Ave Maria” as the counter-protestors chanted slogans and held signs.

During the protest, pro-aborts shouted and held up banners with phrases including “abortion is healthcare” and “abortion is a gift.”

In one now-viral video clip, a woman clad in a one-piece bathing suit can be seen waving plastic baby dolls tied to pink strips of cloth and screaming, “I’m killing the babies!” and then going on to simulate abortion in a gruesome and graphic pantomime.

While most pro-lifers were reportedly prevented from going across the street from the Planned Parenthood to pray as initially planned, National Review reporter Kathryn Jean Lopez noted that prayer “was just as intense inside the church.”

“As always during these incidents, I’m overwhelmed by how angry and obviously hurt so many of the people who showed up this morning are,” Lopez said. “Pray for people who wake up in the morning [and] want to protest people who pray for women and babies to not be pressured into abortion.”

Father Brian Graebe of St. Patrick’s Cathedral responded to the pro-abortion demonstrations during a Fox News segment on Monday, in which he explained that Saturday’s protest was “entirely different” than usual.

According to Graebe, only a small number of counter-protestors usually show up to oppose the pro-lifers during the St. Patrick’s first Saturday Mass and rosary procession.

This time, however, nearly 100 pro-aborts arrived in what he termed “​​the celebration of death.”

The priest explained there have been “a number of threats to bomb the church, burn it down” in recent days, after the unprecedented leak of the Supreme Court’s majority opinion draft in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case last week.

“Very hateful and vile messages,” Graebe said.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

Don't allow pro-abortion leftists to pressure Supreme Court justices to change their vote to overturn Roe!

According to an initial leaked draft majority opinion allegedly written by Justice Samuel Alito and obtained by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court has voted to overturn its nearly 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, which imposed abortion on demand across the country.

As reported by Politico, the opinion is “a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision."

Of course, if this decision holds, this would be the best news in decades, thanks be to God!

However, leftists in Washington and in the media will stop at nothing to prevent Roe from being overturned.

But, intimidation and threats cannot be permitted to influence the Court, especially on this most fundamental human rights ruling.

That's why - right now - it's essential to urge the High Court to PUBLISH the ruling which overturns Roe.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

The leak of a drafted opinion is unprecedented in Supreme Court history and is sending shockwaves through the legal world.

Rumors are swirling about who could've leaked this seminal ruling, and what Chief Justice Roberts and the FBI will do about it.

But, this is a distraction from the real news which is that the Supreme Court is on the verge of righting one of the worst legal decisions ever made in the United States.

Over 60 million babies have been killed in the U.S. since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, a colossal evil that has been allowed to stand for too long.

That's why we need to tell the Members of the U.S. Supreme Court to stand strong and PUBLISH THE RULING NOW!

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

RELATED: Pro-abortion activists descend on SCOTUS justices’ homes to intimidate them on Roe decision

According to the leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court, the nation’s highest court is set to rule in favor of Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban by overturning both Roe v. Wade, which established a federal “right to abortion,” along with Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992) that had upheld Roe. 

Pro-abortion activists have responded to the news with outrage and renewed efforts to codify abortion as the law of the land. Meanwhile, activist organization Ruth Sent Us has called on pro-aborts to protest outside the homes of pro-life Supreme Court justices and descend upon Catholic churches.

During the Monday Fox News interview, Fr. Graebe said that in light of the increased tension surrounding abortion, he was advised by law enforcement not to hold the monthly rosary procession.

Despite their warnings, Graebe declined to do so.

“We’ve been doing this for over a decade, every month rain or shine,” he said. “And we certainly intend to continue doing so.”
