Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, a pro-abortion church in Raleigh, North Carolina, recently hosted abortion activists to plot the best way to push back against a free, pro-life charity called Hand of Hope, that recently settled a lawsuit, and can now operate a free pregnancy resource center in Raleigh.

WRAL.com reports, “Abortion rights supporters planned a Tuesday evening meeting at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church to discuss the prospect of the two facilities side by side. They call crisis pregnancy centers, which receive more than $2 million a year in state grants, ‘fake clinics’ that give out medically inaccurate information to persuade women against having abortions.”
One minister at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, Katey Zeh, is an outspoken advocate for abortion. She tweeted yesterday:

She once said, “I really felt my call to ministry while volunteering at a reproductive health clinic that performed abortion services. It came from walking through a line of protesters, who assumed I was a patient, and experiencing the violence of people of faith. I thought, can I be someone who looks different from people of faith who were being violent, and be an advocate for reproductive rights? That was the moment I felt called to that work.”
Christian churches must always speak out against abortion; protecting the least among us is a central tenet of Christian teaching.
Planned Parenthood recently took a break from bashing Christians to claim that Christians can support abortion, saying, “Faith and Planned Parenthood aren’t in opposition of each other…That’s a common misconception about our work. There’s a national group called Catholics for Choice and a lot of our patients and staff are practicing Catholics, so I think this comes down to more extreme interpretation of those values.” You can read more about that here.
