Pro-abortion protesters were quickly escorted out of a Mass last month at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Chicago, according to the church’s bulletin.
A video of the June 26 protest shows protesters standing up from the pews during Mass and entering the aisle to begin a demonstration. One of the protesters can then be heard reading aloud the statement of Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which returned the regulation of abortion to the states.
“This is the statement of the Archbishop of Chicago,” the protester shouted at the 11 a.m. Mass. The protester barely made it through the cardinal’s first sentence before someone can be heard shouting, “Get out of here! We’re in church!”
More shouts can be heard directed at the protesters: “Get out of this place!” and “This is church!”
