Praying for a minister who picked Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood buildingThere is a call to action after a Presbyterian minister "blessed" an abortion clinic in Maine.

Not only did Portland minister Marvin Ellison bless a Planned Parenthood clinic, he also serves as a volunteer chaplain there, says LifeNews.com founder and editor Steven Ertelt.

"And he is basically meeting with patients to, kind of, give them spiritual permission, if you will," says Ertelt, "for them to have abortions and kill their unborn children."

This is not the first time, says Ertelt, that the abortion giant has recruited clergy to become involved in an attempt to legitimize abortion.

"They understand that people realize that this is a unique child, a unique human being, who is destroyed in an abortion," he tells OneNewsNow. "So the understanding that there is human life in the womb is certainly taking place, and they have to figure out a PR way, or PR strategy, to counteract that. And what they've done is they're trying to get clergy involved."

Ertelt and LifeNews noted that Ellison wrote a column for a local newspaper defending his abortion advocacy with the "highly professional and highly caring health care team" at the Planned Parenthood clinic. 

In the commentary, the minister goes on to suggest that "reproductive" health care is an "important family value," among other claims. 

In the 700-word commentary, however, the reverend left out one word: abortion. 

Despite what some pastors and laymen may claim, Ertelt maintains God is the author of life and therefore hates abortion, and it's past time for people in our churches to spread that message, he adds.
