Planned Parenthood sues a church for holding services outside abortion clinic
Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho is taking legal action against the church, which regularly worships outside the Spokane clinic, according to a report earlier this week in The Spokesman-Review.
“Planned Parenthood is not worried about patient care. We have service once a month, in the evening after their business hours. They seek to silence our message,” Pastor Ken Peters said in an interview with The Christian Post on Thursday.
“They are scared of our prayers and our worship. We aren’t there to bother them; we are there to touch heaven and be a light to the world. We are there to be a prophetic statement that we, the church, don’t approve the killing of life inside the womb (…) Right now, they are suing us for psychological damages to their staff and patients after hours. I’m sorry, but they do much more damage to these women and children than our singing,” Peters added.
Attorneys for the abortion giant have said that the Christian gatherings, which sometimes draw hundreds of people, interfere with the clinic’s operations and have “intimidated patients and the clinic staff”.
“These are not protesters — they are bullies who are trying to take away care from young women, men, the LGBTQ community and black, indigenous, people of colour in Spokane.” Karl Eastlund, chief executive of the regional Planned Parenthood organisation, said in a statement.
“We are making the temple of Satan angry. This isn’t a political war or an earthly battle. It is spiritual,” Peters explained.
