A word from PPL about the Colorado Springs shooting PDF Print E-mail

PPL Logo cymk hqvertPresbyterians Pro-Life deplores the violent crime outside the Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, CO that left three people dead and nine injured on November 27, 2015. We grieve with and pray for the families of those who have died. PPL denounces violence against all innocents or as a means of protest.

PPL exists to educate, promote thoughtful and theological discussion of life issues, and affirm life at all stages from conception to natural death. For our part we seek always to provide a peaceful and loving response to abortion, caring for both woman and child, and holding truth and love together with grace.

December 2nd, fourteen people were killed in another violent shooting at a social services center for individuals with special needs in San Bernardino, CA. There is truth in Martin Luther King, Jr.'s words that "violence begets violence." Jesus said it in slightly different words: "Put your sword back in its place. For all who take the sword will perish by the sword" (Matthew 26:52). Nothing is more violent that dismembering a developing infant in the womb. Is it any wonder our society is increasingly violence-prone outside the womb?
