Planned Parenthood's 40 Days of Prayer 31 - 40

Thanks to Kate Cann, who posted the link to the entire sickening thing at the RealChoice Facebook group.

Here is it -- but get some soul bleach -- the Planned Parenthood / Humbolt County Clergy for Choice "40 Days of Prayer Supporting Women Everywhere." Some of these prayers might seem innocent, unless you know the way the abortion lobby uses language. I already covered Day 1 - Day 10, 11 - 20 , and 21 - 30. Let's close out with Days 31 - 40.

Day 31: today we pray for all discrimination against women to cease.
A nice prayer, at face value. But remember that they include refusal to pay for (and if you're a medical professional, participate in) abortion to be "discrimination against women."
Day 32: Today we pray for an end to the stigma perpetrated against women who have had abortions.
They're really beating this one to death. This is I believe the fourth time they've prayed for people to learn to admire women for slaying their unborn children. Guess what? There will always be the knowledge that abortion is killing a child, that it is at best an act of fear, and at worst an act of unparalleled selfish evil. Who wants to live in a world where this is not considered worthy of stigma?
Day 33: Today we offer a prayer of remembrance for abortion providers who lost their lives because of their commitment to women.
Yes, some people were killed because they were abortion workers, but they were not targeted for their commitment to women. They were targeted for their commitment to killing unborn children. This prayer is an attempt to turn them into martyrs.
Day 34: Today we give thanks for abortion escorts who guide women safely through the hostile gauntlets of protesters.
This is partially a rerun of Day 6, when they painted prolifers as "hostile," only now they're adding the idea that escorts are noble.

I've seen escorts open car doors and pull weeping women into the clinic. I've seen escorts screaming in women's ears to keep them from hearing the prolifers. I've seen them actively block women who were reaching for the prolifers' pamphlets, and even snatch the pamphlets out of women's hands. Every weeping woman who is shoved through those doors is then celebrated with high-fives and cheering, as if the "prochoice" team just scored a touchdown.

Escorts are primarily a tool for ensuring that no desperate woman gets that 11th-hour reprieve. And that is not a noble thing worth giving thanks for -- unless you're an abortionist grateful that they make sure you never lose a sale.
Day 35: Today we pray for girls everywhere, that they may have every opportunity for education, sport, health, art, and vocation.
This is an innocuous prayer at first -- then you realize that the prayer also implies a prayer that they'll avail themselves of abortion if a pregnancy makes the goals of education, sport, health, art, or vocation more difficult to pursue.
Day 36: Today we pray for the families we've chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.
How about prayers for the family members you've chosen to kill? And what kind of sick person considers abortion (which they're euphamising as "choice") a blessing?
Day 37: Today we pray for women to claim their equality and demand their rights as citizens.
More code for wanting more women to embrace abortion.
Day 38: Today we pray for a cloud of gentleness to surround every abortion facility. May everyone feel calm and loving.
This would be easier to achieve if they weren't participating in human sacrifice inside those facilities. This is like a prayer for peace, calmness, and love at Buchenwald or Auschwitz. If you're in the business of killing, you're not inviting peace, calmness, or love.
Day 39: Today we pray for a contagious love to overflow from our spirits.
Again, painting the abortion participant as acting on love. Maybe some of them are. But let's face it, if was overflowing from their spirits, they'd stop participating in abortion. Maybe we need to pray fervently that contagious love will indeed overflow from their spirits, as it is now flowing from the spirits of Carol Everett, Anthony Levatino, and Abby Johnson.
Day 40: Today we give thanks and celebrate that abortion is still safe and legal.
First of all, giving thanks for and celebrating abortion is sickening. Second of all, we've seen that legal does not equal safe, and that they ignore this inconvenient fact. This is less a prayer than it is yet another PR move to promote the idea that legalizing abortion was a wonderful thing and that we need not worry any longer that women will suffer now that they're being entrusted to the enlightened modern abortionist.

Of course, the fact that the entire exercise is a lie is in the paragraph describing Humboldt County Clergy for Choice: "We are religious leaders who value all human life."

Sorry, but you can't reconcile valuing human life with prayers thanking God for abortion.
