Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast organized the “Stand with Women” rally in support of a new abortion facility in the Crescent City.

The rally took place at the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans affiliated with the PC(USA). Rev. Fred J. Powell, III is the church pastor.

In 2014, Rev. Fred J. Powell allowed Planned Parenthood to “present a minute for mission” to the church congregation and introduced the abortion clinic chain this way in the bulletin:

    Today, We welcome our soon to be neighbors, Planned Parenthood of New Orleans. They will present a minute for mission this morning. Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast is building a new health center on South Claiborne. Planned Parenthood is a trusted quality health care provider which has been operating a health center on Magazine Street for thirty years. The new health center is scheduled to open in 2015 and will provide well women exams, testing for STIs and HIV, cancer screenings and other related reproductive health services. In addition to health care services, Planned Parenthood provides age appropriate health education, parent education and healthy pregnancy education. Planned Parenthood is a community partner with many health and education programs

The sermon that day was ironically entitled, “The Lamb of God and the Sheep-ish Goats.

A statement about the rally on the church website reads:

    Recently First Presbyterian opened our doors to a impromptu Planned Parenthood rally that was enthusiastically attended by more than 200 supporters, including Councilwomen Latoya Cantrell and Susan Guidry, both of whom are passionately and consistently concerned about the state of health care in our city. We are looking forward to further events and lobbying our government in Baton Rouge for more funding for mental and physical health services in Louisiana.

    First Presbyterian is committed to caring for the bodies as well as the souls of our community and supports the work that Planned Parenthood is doing in our neighborhood to build a heath care center.

City Council member, LaToya Cantrell told the crowd, “It feels great to be here this afternoon knowing that the pews are filled with majority women who are standing up for the rights that we all deserve.

Recently a church in Wichita, Kansas was criticized after they held a fundraiser for the abortion giant. The “Chili for Choice” event was originally exposed on this blog.

    Have I just awaken to a very bad dream? Or has the meaning of the word ‘christian’ changed? It’s supposed to mean ‘follower of Christ’ or ‘believer in Christ and His teachings’. I’m confused because I cannot reconcile a follower of Christ who is, at the same time, complicit in the murder of unborn babies.
