The Bishop of Portsmouth, England has called Catholics to pray for the conversion of 113 Members of the British Parliament who signed a letter urging the ban of prayer vigils outside of abortion clinics.
"It's folly that Jeremy Corbyn and MPs want to restrict freedom of speech/prayer outside abortion clinics," said Bishop Philip Egan of Portsmouth on Twitter.
"Let's pray for their conversion," he continued.
The MPs' letter requested that Home Secretary Amber Rudd ban prayer vigils outside of abortion clinics, making them illegal. Members of five political political parties signed the letter, including Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, and Vince Cable, the leader of the Liberal Democrats.
