View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Pro-Choice Violence: Lila Rose assaulted

Live Action Films president Lila Rose has filed a police report after she was allegedly struck by a Planned Parenthood escort outside a San Jose abortion center.

Rose was on a public sidewalk outside the Planned Parenthood affiliate at 1691 The Alameda. She was praying with a group and offering information to women entering the abortion center on Thursday when she got into an exchange with a uniformed escort, who recognized her as the investigator in the Live Action videos, which expose Planned Parenthood workers breaking laws and lying to young women who say they are seeking abortions.

According to the police report filed at the scene - corroborated by witnesses - Rose said, "Sir, are you familiar with the abortion procedure?"

The Planned Parenthood escort allegedly approached Rose and said, "You idiot. You've caused so much trouble. You piece of crap."

According to the police report, Rose offered to show the escort a picture, saying, "Can I show you a picture of what it really does to a baby?"

At that point, the Planned Parenthood escort allegedly struck Rose's hand, knocking literature and a Bible to the ground. Rose then reportedly stepped further back onto sidewalk, and the escort, who was visibly upset according to the report, stepped towards her saying, "It's a woman's choice!"

Rose responded, "What about the baby's choice?"

At that point the escort said, "It's not a baby!" Then the escort walked away.

Police were then called and interviewed the Rose and several witnesses. Rose sustained no injuries from the attack. Charges of assault and battery are pending.

Maybe the escort's violent response was due to a nagging conscience that was trying to deny the reality of what he was helping to do to those babies. Let us pray for him and all others caught up in the violence of abortion.

It's people like him who need to see a live-action ultrasound of a "not-a-baby" as I did yesterday. The very first "sounding" of him had him looking right at us. Unmistakable little human being in there! He was moving all over the place, arms, hands, and of course his heart itself was visibly beating, and when the doc turned up the sound, we heard the beat quite clearly. I mean, this is available to all, and it is completely undeniable. Not even the pro-*choice* crowd denies it anymore, do they? No doubt he was trying to convince himself it's not *yet* life because it's not viable outside the womb, but what do two (now) escort Sisters whom we've heard of recently, say to themselves of it? Surely Religious know the Church's teachings.

Satan doesn't want to lose this voracioius sin machine. It is built of bodily death and soul-demise from start to finish; that's a pretty clear calling card.

True, anonymous. Planned Parenthood likes to try to appear to be helping women, when in reality it does them and their babies great harm.

Heroes like Lila Rose help to expose the truth.
