Hagatna, Guam, Jun 17, 2019 / 10:01 am
Catholics in Guam have organized a prayer rally to protest the territorial governor's plan to recruit a doctor willing to perform abortions, after the retirement of the island's last abortion doctor.
"Say no to recruiting doctors who will kill our unborn children! Say yes to recruiting doctors who help us save lives," read an invitation to the prayer rally sent by Patricia Perry, co-chair of the Catholic Pro-Life Committee, according to the Pacific Daily News, a Hagatna daily.
"We will not stop until all abortion is outlawed and all anti-life laws will be abolished," Perry stated.
Guam Governor Lou Leon Guerrero, a former nurse who took office in January, recently expressed her wish to expand abortion access in the territory, but no doctors on the island are willing to perform abortions. The territory's last abortion doctor retired in June 2018.
