Seven Christians Arrested for Praying Outside Abortion Center, Trying to Save Babies
LifeNews.com - Seven more pro-life advocates were arrested Monday for peacefully praying near a North Carolina abortion facility.
The Greensboro Police Department arrested the Christians as they stood near an abortion facility in Greensboro, praying and offering resources to people going inside, PJ Media reports. Allegedly, the pro-lifers violated a Guilford County mandate requiring people to stay at home except for essential needs.
The pro-life advocates are with the organization Love Life, which has been trying to abide by the social distancing mandates while still striving to save unborn babies from abortions.
