No place for violence

As members of the pro-life community, we were appalled at the news of the arson fire at the Pullman Planned Parenthood. We wholeheartedly condemn violence of any sort and we pray the perpetrator or perpetrators of this cowardly act will be brought to justice.

We care about everyone present at Planned Parenthood – the men and women entering the facility, unborn babies, as well as all Planned Parenthood staff.

The 40 Days for Life and Sidewalk Advocates for Life are peaceful, prayerful and law-abiding. We offer hope and alternative resources to those facing an unexpected pregnancy and strive to show love and compassion to all present at Planned Parenthood.

There’s simply no place for violence in the pro-life movement. We urge anyone who struggles with anger to seek help, and we pray for the safety of all citizens.
