Iowa Gubernatorial Candidates Pray for Abortion Rights
Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates joined abortion activists in a prayer for increased access to abortion at a rally held Wednesday.
Creative Minority Report notes the following video:
Similarly, Life News reports the “prayer:”
We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.
We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.
Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.
Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.
Iowa Democrat candidates for governor, Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson, participated in the prayer.
In April, President Obama, in attendance at the annual Planned Parenthood gala, told the abortion industry, “You’ve also got a president who is going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way.”
At the conclusion of his speech, Obama said to the crowd of Planned Parenthood supporters, “Thank you. God bless you.”
