Pro-abortion mob storm Catholic Church during 'Respect Life' Mass
A pro-abortion mob stormed St. Joseph Cathedral Downtown (Columbus, USA) during its Respect Life Mass on Friday (22 January)
The Mass was being presided over by Catholic Diocese of Columbus Bishop Robert Brennan at an annual event hosted by the diocese on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalised killing unborn babies in the United States.
The pro-abortionists stormed in during "A Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children" mass
The protesters were forcibly removed by police and diocese officials after they marched through the sanctuary screaming and holding signs such as "fund abortion not cops."
Columbus police had no details on any arrests on Saturday.
In a statement, Bishop Brennan said: “Today during our Respect Life Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral, a group of protesters entered this sacred space in an attempt to disrupt our worship. I am deeply thankful to the Columbus Police, assisted by diocesan staff, for the quick response without injury to anyone present.
“I want to express my great admiration and thanks to all those attending the Mass whose respectful and prayerful response reflects the joy, hope, and mercy that marks our pro-life witness. I also apologize to the families present whose children were exposed to this," Brennan said.
“On this day, in remembrance of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, I ask all to continue to pray for the unborn who died, for all those who have experienced the pain of abortion, and for those who cannot understand our divine and steadfast calling to champion this cause,” the bishop said.
