24 Hours of Prayer Underway at Planned Parenthood

March 30, 2018 - 7:12 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Twenty-four hours of prayer to stop abortions is underway outside Planned Parenthood on Forest Park Avenue right now.  The prayers are also for parents and  those performing abortions.  Founder of Defenders of the Unborn, Mary Mashmeiyer says the organization is helping 14 young mothers and pregnant women right now.

“We just paid the rent of one young girl of $800 because she’s unable to pay it this time, and that’s what we do. We help young ladies keep their babies, or if they’re interested in putting that child up for adoption we put them with our attorneys,” she says.

Mashmeiyer says some have signed up to pray for two hours but you can show up anytime. There are similar prayer gatherings going on at more than 100 locations around the country.
