Recently, the ministry began holding services outside abortion facilities in other states, including Tennessee and Georgia.
Below is a Life News article by Micaiah Bilger concerning The Church at Planned Parenthood holding worship services in front of the abortion site.
Planned Parenthood is trying to permanently stop a church from holding worship services outside its abortion facility in Spokane, Washington.
On Friday, Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho asked a Spokane County Superior Court judge for a permanent injunction against The Church at Planned Parenthood, KREM News 2 reports.
The abortion chain claims the pro-life ministry has been violating a temporary injunction that a judge issued in 2020 and “interfering with patients’ access to healthcare,” according to the report.
However, leaders of The Church at Planned Parenthood say they are not protesters. Their purpose is to worship God and pray for repentance “of our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust.” Prior to the judge’s order, hundreds of people would gather to worship outside the abortion facility in Spokane, according to the local news.
Planned Parenthood and Legal Voice filed a lawsuit against the church last year. They claimed the pro-life Christians are bullying patients and staff and interfering with Planned Parenthood’s work.
In their request Friday, they told a judge that staff, patients and neighbors have seen pro-lifers violate the temporary injunction order, according to the local news. They also accused the Spokane Police Department of not enforcing a city noise ordinance.
