Pro-abortion activists showed up to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City equipped with vulgar language, vicious insults… and a light show.
Saturday night, pro-lifers entering and exiting the church for the Archdiocese of New York’s Prayer Vigil for Life were protected with barricades and a police presence, but weren’t safeguarded from the verbal onslaught of chants like “God loves abortion”, “New York hates you,” and “Go home fascists, go home.”
From the elderly to the young children and their parents making their way to the vigil, screams of “Go to hell b****”, “F*** you”, and “abortion forever” were delivered outside the doors of the cathedral. And on the cathedral, splashed in neon light, was more pro-abortion rhetoric like “free abortion on demand”.
Days earlier, in advance of the March for Life in D.C., the group “Catholics for Choice” engaged in a similar display during a Mass and Holy Hour at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington.
As Catholic News Agency reports, a woman who appeared to be an organizer of Saturday’s assault announced to the demonstrators that the group would be protesting a “Witness for Life” event February 5 by slowing down participants’ rosary procession “with our bodies.”
