New Orleans Presbyterian Church holds rally to celebrate abortion

Christian churches in the United States are going to Hell in a wheelbarrow.

In January 2015, news came that a Kansas Episcopal church held a fundraiser for the abortion mill Planned Parenthood. Now a Presbyterian church in Louisiana has joined the blood lust.

First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans

Saynsumthn blogger Carole Novielli reports, via Life News, April 9, 2015, that last month, the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans held a “Stand with Women” rally in support of a new Planned Parenthood abortion facility in the city.

A statement about the rally on the church website reads:

Recently First Presbyterian opened our doors to a impromptu Planned Parenthood rally that was enthusiastically attended by more than 200 supporters, including Councilwomen Latoya Cantrell and Susan Guidry, both of whom are passionately and consistently concerned about the state of health care in our city. We are looking forward to further events and lobbying our government in Baton Rouge for more funding for mental and physical health services in Louisiana.

First Presbyterian is committed to caring for the bodies as well as the souls of our community and supports the work that Planned Parenthood is doing in our neighborhood to build a heath care center.

Here’s a video of the sickening rally, with one woman after another declaring she “stands for women” is an enthusiastic supporter of killing innocent defenseless babies.

City Council member, LaToya Cantrell told the crowd, “It feels great to be here this afternoon knowing that the pews are filled with majority women who are standing up for the rights that we all deserve.

Rev. Fred J. Powell, III

Rev. Fred J. Powell, III is the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans. On the church’s “Staff” webpage, Powell describes himself as “the first out Gay protestant pastor in New Orleans, (and perhaps in Louisiana).”

In 2014, Powell introduced the Planned Parenthood abortion chain this way in the church bulletin:

Today, We welcome our soon to be neighbors, Planned Parenthood of New Orleans. They will present a minute for mission this morning. Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast is building a new health center on South Claiborne. Planned Parenthood is a trusted quality health care provider which has been operating a health center on Magazine Street for thirty years. The new health center is scheduled to open in 2015 and will provide well women exams, testing for STIs and HIV, cancer screenings and other related reproductive health services. In addition to health care services, Planned Parenthood provides age appropriate health education, parent education and healthy pregnancy education. Planned Parenthood is a community partner with many health and education programs

By “other related reproductive health services,” the “reverend” was referring to abortion — the deliberate, premeditated murder of innocent, defenseless human beings. Or doesn’t the “reverend” know that abortion accounts for 94% of Planned Parenthood’s for-profit business?

As or Planned Parenthood’s “education” that’s so extolled by the “reverend,” does he not know that its idea of education is teaching high school students about sex toys and porn and that there’s no need to tell your sex partners you have AIDS?

Here’s the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans’ contact page. I urge you to drop Rev. Powell a line to inform him of the above!

  1. People of authentic Faith are outraged, grief-stricken by slaughter of the innocent; by the desecration of the womb that abortion engenders.

  2. This is horrible—When two southern Baptist missionaries tried to force me to have an abortion in my 9th mo. of pregnancy overseas, I had no place to go to have my baby. I could not fly home that late & I had two other children & their welfare to consider. I have been blackmailed by the southern Baptist regarding the safety of my children, especially my baby for all these years. If the church had not gone the way of the devil, they could have assisted me & thus allowing me to live an honorable & decent life, it could have gone much better with me & my family. But, it did not! However, I must say that conservatism is to blame for many things that they are not taking responsibility for—they have successfully built a church system on empty moral values void of the spirit of the Lord. Yes, I have been told to sit down, shut up & submit when I attempted to tell of the blackmail…No one cared or gave a tinkers but, God has brought me thus far & had Peter said–“Lord with your help” I will never deny you, he would not have done so…So with the Lord’s help, I will do my best to build a strong, emotionally healthy family unit. Just remember this—If the church had not left the door open for satan it would not be in this current situation. The Presbyterian church and the Presbyterian Patriots of Princeton (then college of New Jersey) were some of our most helpful & righteous patriots in the foundations of this nation. REPENTENCE BEGINS WITH CONSERVATISM & WITH THE HOUSE OF THE LORD—AND THEN REPENTENCE BEGINS WITH LIBERALISM & THE HOUSE OF THE LORD…>>>When you all tell the people you have to vote republican to be saved you are promoting political salvations. & this is renegade to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
    I Love America—& I love my Lord who has brought us this far.:

  3. These hypocrites need to be shut down,since they’ve actively gone against one of the primary tenets of being a CHURCH.

  5. Simply disgusting and totally evil!! This “pastor” is leading his flock on their way to Hell. I cringe every time I hear the Libratard’s phrase “women’s healthcare” used as a disguise for their bloody sacrifice of innocent blood. I never thought I would see the day when the churches joined in the practice of infanticide.

  7. This is not a liberal sin—This is also a conservative sin—because they have allowed me to be blackmailed regarding the safety of my baby & my children due to the fact I told their renegade, rogue missionaries that I did not believe in abortion. I see the picture of the horrible thing done to that baby & I recall that the missionaries told me that an airman under them went crazy & boiled their own baby . A friend was at the hospital that day & he told me that he had seen Buddist Monks set themselves on fire in Viet Nam, but he had never seen anything like that before in his life. The baby’s meat literally fell off the bones. If you people do something about your blackmailing, baby boiling Baptist then you can do something about the Presbyterians. >>>You see these were the same baby boiling Baptist that tried to force me to have an abortion when I was 9 mos. pregnant.>>>I submit to you as long as the conservative baby boiling Baptist refuse to do anything about their murdering lying blackmailing ways, don’t tell me you are against abortion. I was told I had no rights my husband could let me die on the delivery table. I don’t know if the CIA—FBI—Military intelligence or the Chinese or the Iranians or whoever paid these missionaries their salary—but these one thing I do know they evidently participated in forced abortions on military & military dependents continent wide.>>>Deal with the conservative Kystapo first & then maybe you may be able to make a difference in the abortion situation in this country. But you might have to stand up to men instead of unborn, ll day old, & ll yr old & pregnant women in a foreign country. Since the gutless have spend so much time & energy in trying to destroy me for telling the truth — I am here to inform you all that repentance begins at the House of the Lord. In Judges we see the priest did not have the guts to stand up to the people when they were sacrificing their babies to molock. They were also blackmailed. May I with God’s help throw off the shackles of the blackmail of the priests of Moelock. Bonnie Parvino (I sign my name I don’t put a bunch of garbage on the net against someone and refuse to allow them to defend themselves. I don’t believe in trials without juries and juries without trials. Brp


  8. This is so evil in so many ways. How we can teach evolution — that all animals and man came from a single cell out of the sea –and yet not believe that a baby comes from an embryo is simple beyond comprehension. I also cannot get my mind around the fact that a baby in the womb is just tissue but once it goes through the birth canal or delivered via c-section then it becomes a real baby. Oh Lord, Oh Lord have mercy on us!

  13. How times have changed and not always for the best. I remember the days when my Roman Catholic girl friends in New Orleans used to dress up in their cutest outfits and hit the Protestant churches for Sunday services, especially the Presbyterian and Baptist churches because that’s where many of the eligible boys were. They would be rolling over in their graves if they knew about this.


  14. “Nest of vipers” describes it perfectly!


  15. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this fascinating post. Again, this is another example of calling evil, good, and good, evil. In order to be “politically correct” or accepted, this Presbyterian Church and leadership has turned “lukewarm,” people who are the most vile to Jesus. They fail to pay the price for standing up for what is truly right and good.
