Bishop Approves Prayers for 'Bringing Jesus to Planned Parenthood Through Mary' Campaign

Consecration in Washington, D.C. Marks 25th Anniversary of STOPP Planned Parenthood

WASHINGTON, May 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is released by the American Life League: 

American Life League will unveil new prayers approved by Bishop Emeritus John W. Yanta to combat Planned Parenthood -- the nation's largest abortion chain -- during a Rosary and prayer procession in front of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington. 

To observe the 25th anniversary of ALL's STOP Planned Parenthood project, the event will kick-start a new nationwide campaign to "Bring Jesus to Planned Parenthood through Mary." 

May 15, 2010, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. 

A Rosary procession from The Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle, 1725 Rhode Island Ave., NW, following 8:00 a.m. Mass to Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, 1108 16th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 

The purpose of American Life League's STOPP project is really quite simple: To cause such discontent with Planned Parenthood programs that it will have no choice but to close its doors and get out of town. 

To mark the 25th anniversary of STOPP's efforts to eradicate Planned Parenthood, the group will consecrate the fight against Planned Parenthood to Our Blessed Mother, followed by prayers asking Our Lady to Stop Planned Parenthood that have been specifically written for this campaign and approved by Bishop Emeritus John W. Yanta. 

American Life League will also be unveiling three new signs available for grassroots pro-lifers to combat Planned Parenthood. 

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.
