Abortion Is Compared to Christ Crucifixion

ProLifeCorner.com- AURORA, Ill., April 16, 2014 –  Chicago Area Planned Parenthood Draws Good Friday ‘Way of the Cross’ Observance. Pro-Life Action League Connects Innocent Abortion of Preborn Children to Christ’s Crucifixion
Good Friday, April 18, 2014, will be marked at Aurora’s Planned Parenthood center as a day of mourning and prayer for lives lost to abortion. Ever since the massive abortion facility opened in 2007 under a cloud of deception and controversy, community members have used every peaceful means to speed the day that America’s largest abortion provider leaves this large suburban community west of Chicago, from lawsuits to protests to prayer vigils. On the day that Christians worldwide observe the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, faithful believers will gather outside of the abortion center to grieve for the innocent unborn children who are put to death daily almost 2,000 years after the original Good Friday. “The Way of the Cross for Abortion Victims,” coordinated by the Pro-Life Action League, also emphasizes prayers for babies at risk of being aborted to be spared and for their mothers to choose life.
