DURANGO, Colorado, July 28, 2010 (—On July 29, the pro-life organization LifeGuard will hold a press conference and protest in front of Mercy Regional Medical Center (MRMC), a Catholic hospital that has a Planned Parenthood abortionist on its staff.

“A Catholic Hospital that grants full privileges to a Doctor who brutally murders babies every week is NOT a Catholic Hospital,” stated Joe Scheidler, National Director of the Pro-Life Action League in a press release. “Mercy Regional can no longer ignore this issue. We hope to send a clear message – we want Dr. Grossman out of there.”

In addition to Joe Scheidler, speakers will include Father Fessio, founder of Ignatius Press, Walter Hoye, Founder of the California Civil Rights Foundation, Gualberto Garcia-Jones of Personhood Colorado, and Dan Anguis, LifeGuard Director.

Gualberto Garcia-Jones has previously pointed out that Dr. Grossman would be unable to support himself on what he makes killing children one day a week.  This means that money from MRMC enables him to continue as an abortionist in the Durango Planned Parenthood.

Dr. Grossman also publicly pushes contraception and a population control ideology in his “Population Matters” blog, which is also published in the Durango Herald.

“Catholic parents who come to Mercy Regional have a right to expect that their child will be received by the hands of a physician who holds all life sacred – not the hands that earlier that week held the instruments of abortion to destroy the life of some other innocent baby,” said Scheidler.

“The presence of an abortion provider on the staff of a Catholic hospital is contrary to Catholic social teaching and Catholic moral values. We plead with Mercy to exhort abortionist Grossman to give up his abortion career or resign from the hospital staff.”

The protest will be held at 1010 Three Springs Blvd., Durango, CO 81301, on July 29, at 2:00 p.m.
