On Aug. 22, pro-lifers in Alaska will join thousands around the nation in praying and fasting to end abortion and shut down Planned Parenthood.
The gathering is part of a nation-wide effort, Aug. 22-29, to pray and protest outside Planned Parenthood clinics following the release of undercover videos showing the abortion giant harvesting body parts of aborted babies and then haggling over the value of each part with prospective buyers.
In Anchorage pro-life advocates will gather outside the Planned Parenthood clinic at 4001 East Lake Otis Parkway from 9-11 a.m.
In an email to pro-life advocates local organizer Jane McCoy urged Alaskans to turn out on Saturday.
“Planned Parenthood has been the largest abortion provider in our country for decades, but the extent of their perverse inhumanity toward these tiniest of humans was not fully understood until the recent release of videos exposing their exploitation of these innocents through the dissection and harvesting of their precious organs for profit,” she said. “Please be a part of this nation-wide on Saturday, if you are able.”
Prayers for the interdenominational effort can be found at PrayerCampaign.org.
