Church member to abortion protesters “You are not welcome to hold that sign in front of my church”
Anti-abortion protesters upset that a church is only blocks away from the last remaining abortion clinic in Jackson, Mississippi showed up to protest in front on Palm Sunday.
Protesters held signs depicting abortion victims outside Fondren Presbyterian Church, part of the PCUSA denomination which supports abortion.
Mississippi has been the target of several protest groups this week from Abolish Human Abortion, Operation Save America, Survivors and others protesting the last remaining abortion clinic in the state.
Pat McEwen, a representative of Operation Save America, told the Clarion Ledger that the group was not responsible for the protests on Sunday morning, though. “We got into town on Sunday night,” she said.
McEwen also said her group no longer protests outside churches by handing out tracts and holding graphic signs. She said her group found that such approaches were unsuccessful and therefore changed their tactic.
The man who uploaded the video, identified himself as Dorsey Carson and can be heard telling protesters outside Fondren Presbyterian Church that they were “yelling at his congregants.”
Carson told the protesters, “I’m going to have you arrested.”
Protesters seemed undeterred and the video does not show if police showed up or not.
I have since discovered this response from the pastor at another church where protests were held- read it here.
Protesting churches is controversial within the ranks of those who oppose abortion.
