In January, more than half a dozen pro-abortion protesters interrupted a pro-life Mass in Columbus, Ohio where Bishop Robert Brennan was presiding over an event marking the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

According to the National Catholic Register:

Those involved, masked and holding hand-made signs, chanted slogans such as “Two, four, six, eight, this church teaches hate.” “Fund abortion, not cops,” said one of their signs. “Abortion on Demand. End Hyde Now,” said another, referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion.

Police and church officials escorted the protesters outside, where some protesters appeared to make obscene gestures at them. The protesters continued to chant at slogans outside the church.

Three of the protesters — two women and one man — were later charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass, both misdemeanors.

A fourth person, a woman, faces those same misdemeanor charges in addition to a criminal damage charge; she is set to be arraigned March 19.

All three protesters arraigned March 5 pleaded not guilty, and are scheduled for pretrial hearings in March and April, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

No arrests were made on the day of the protest, but the city attorney’s office filed the charges Feb. 18.

“We are…thankful for the proactive concern shown by our city’s leaders in supporting people of faith and their right to worship in peace and free of disruption,” Bishop Brennan said in a statement Monday.

“Even our pro-choice city attorney recognized that the rule of law must always apply and our churches are sacred institutions,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life, in a statement.

Pro-abortion groups were unhappy that the protesters were charged, despite them infringing on private church property and menacing people of faith who were praying for human life. Some tried to compare the pro-abortion protesters to pro-life protesters gathering in public spaces outside of abortion facilities.

What are your thoughts on these pro-aborts being charged, and do you think their protest is comparable to pro-life protesters on public lands outside of abortion facilities?

Comparing these thugs to pro-life protestors is laughable. Pro-lifers stay outside and do not interfere with the operation of the clinics but if they did they should be arrested also.

These are people who think every body should walk the same way they do, talk the same way they do and are the only ones who have rights as the women do. In other words nobody should protest these peoples agenda . They think people of faith have no rights whatsoever and anybody who goes against them should shut down .

These type of protesters want the right to commit murder and that’s what it really is. Also same sex partners can never have offspring between just the two of them biologically. Then they want to argue well 85 year olds can’t either, but they wouldn’t want to raise kids at that age anyway. What a bunch of idiots.

Remember John the Baptist in the Bible was filled with the Holy Spirit in his mothers womb.. There is absolute life in the womb, from conception. “Thou shall not murder”.

Stop these people with PRAYER. There is a simple key to Prayer that MANY CHRISTIANS GET WRONG. When you pray for something, and I mean something you TRULY want or want to happen you must Pray in COMPLETE FAITH and make sure that what you ask you ask in the name of JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. I believe one way to exhibit a LACK OF FAITH is if you finish up with “IF IT BE YOUR WILL”. You must believe with ALL YOUR HEART THAT GOD WILL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU PRAY FOR IN JESUS NAME. Now we all know the difference between praying righteously and praying for something frivolous like winning the lotto so please don’t go there. This entire administration WILL face GOD’s Justice and those that support their evil WILL reap the whirlwind.

Was there not a Satanic Temple they could have attended? There they would have been welcomed.

Anyone that votes for the dems id voting for genocide.

Don’t wait today MUST sue Nancy Pelosi for gross negligence causing the wrongful dead of Ashli Babbit in the Capitol riot, she was unarmed, who gave those orders to the the Capitol police to shot an unarmed person without first giving prior notice of that they will be shooting at them , violating the law.
No one is above the Law not even the POTUS, Nancy fired the experienced Capitol chief of police days before the riots and placed an inexperienced person to be in charge, refused the offer from the POTUS TRUMP to have 10,000 troops to stop riots in DC, there are multiple videos that show how the Capitol Police let the rioters in the Capitol and also guide them to the chambers then inside to ambush them and gun down an innocent person.
We The People want the Law to be upheld even to everyone, no one is above the LAW.
Now the say the Capitol police that shot Babbit is in hiding who is helping him to do so, and why they haven’t open an investigation!!!.
