How to respond to Planned Parenthood? Prayer and fasting, say Colorado bishops
August 6, 2015 by
Denver, Colo., Aug 6, 2015 / 05:46 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Following the release of investigative videos showing Planned Parenthood offering aborted baby organs for money, the Catholic bishops of Colorado have designated August 28 as a day of penance and prayer.
“We call on all people of good will in Colorado and beyond to pray that those involved in research and medicine will fix their sights on recognizing the sacredness of life and refrain from putting human life at the service of science,” said the Colorado Catholic Conference in a July 31 statement.
“A society can only be considered socially just if it protects the most vulnerable among us.”
Headquarter in Denver, Colorado, Planned Parenthood of the Rockies was among the affiliates seen in the recent videos released by investigators from the citizen journalist group Center for Medical Progress.
The investigators spent three years meeting with Planned Parenthood officials, while presenting themselves as representatives of fetal tissue procurement companies. They have now begun releasing undercover videos of the meetings, which show Planned Parenthood officials discussing the transfer of aborted baby organs for money.
Among the topics discussed by the Planned Parenthood officials were prices per “specimen” for the organs from aborted babies and how to change the abortion procedure to better ensure “intact” body parts.
“We do tissue collection for CU (University of Colorado), CSU (Colorado State University) – and Ft. Collins had collected some,” stated Dr. Savita T. Ginde in one video.
Dr. Ginde is vice president and medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rockies, a multi-state affiliate that organizes over 10,000 abortions per year.
The same Planned Parenthood branch also recently identified Colorado State University as among one of the procurement companies that uses human organs from abortions for their research.
Following the release of the videos, Congress has launched several investigations into Planned Parenthood, and numerous religious and political leaders have called for the defunding of the organization.
In response to the footage, Colorado’s bishops called on the faithful to participate in the August 28 day of prayer and penance.
Examples of ways to participate include attending Mass and receiving Holy Communion, praying the Rosary or Chaplet of Diving Mercy, reading Scripture, spending time in adoration, fasting and abstaining from meat.

The Cost of Abortion & Contraception Deception
Michael Voris talks an in-depth discussion of the true, financial cost of abortion and its effects to the United States. “The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being’s right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death” (CDF, Donum vitae III; CCC: 2273).

We are used to thinking of the Rockefellers as simply a byword for wealth, power and financial success. Perhaps we might think of them as determined businessmen or see them as great philanthropists. But the truth is far different; the Rockefeller Foundation is actively undermining the Catholic Church, and in the process, attempting to erase man’s natural orientation to the eternal.
