How often do you see a cheerful group of forty young men praying the rosary outside Planned Parenthood?
Panic at Planned Parenthood
The participants of the 2014 Call to Chivalry Camp put the spirit of Catholic knighthood into practice with a simple yet powerful demonstration on June 11 outside Planned Parenthood in Camden, New Jersey. Several boys held a banner, stating: “With God’s grace, our generation will stop abortion.” The honks were
The youthful rally made Planned Parenthood pro-abortion workers panic. According to a police officer who showed up, they were so upset that they called 911.
"You're not in trouble," said the officer, "They [Planned Parenthood] called us and said that you were blocking the sidewalk, stopping traffic and throwing red paint at people…,” then pausing and looking at the boys peacefully praying the rosary and singing hymns, he continued, “but that's obviously not the case. You’re perfectly within your rights to stay as long as you want. If you happen to need us for any reason, give us a call."
This was the first rally against abortion for many of the boys. The sound of the bagpipes boosted their morale and encouraged those passing by to support the right to life.
To conclude, three Hail Mary’s were prayed and the TFP battle cry was given: Tradition, Family, Property (three times)… America, America, America. The young men liked it so much that they wanted to prolong the event and asked if more rallies were on the agenda during the camp. By doing this honorable deed for the unborn, they were living out the Tenth Commandment of Chivalry:
“Thou shalt be everywhere and always the champion of the right and the good against injustice and evil.”
