How is that flyer persecution?

I wasn't sure.  But as seen later, it looks like it's not.  Either way, I would contend that issue concerned if the flyer contained persecution or a group of people, not discrimination against religion. 

James_Gale makes a great point about facts.  Though I would personally be concerned about the conclusions drawn from the facts.

A joint statement was issued today by Archdiocese of St. Louis and the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod concerning the purported sale of aborted baby parts by Planned Parenthood.

Amen!

I told you that you should have come to my church way back when!  You'd have been at home.  (At least for a little while.  We may have been too Lutheran Orthodox for your taste.  There is only so much I could have done to fix your problems.  I'm not a miracle man.  LOL)

And yes, we can say amen to this joint statement.

May I ask your help!  I had hoped to insert the following as a hyperlink.  What I attempted to do was to click on the hyperlink icon and then did a cut/paste between the two url boxes that appeared.  It didn't work.  May I ask how to insert this link to the Planned Parenthood discussion.  I realize it is the ALCU and Roman Catholic church (that is, not PP), however it seems relevant to the conversation.  I'm out for a bit, but will check in later.  Thank you!  Eileen

This seemed an interesting piece on Catholic hospitals and the non-practice of abortion.  When I was on the board of Lutheran Hospital in Brooklyn, Calvary Hospice opened a unit at the hospital.  The hospital which had done abortions had to stop the practice in order to get Calvary in.  At our local Catholic Hospital, St. Joseph's, women are told up front what they can and cannot do.  A woman I know wanted her tubes tied after the birth of her third child and her ob told her he couldn't do it.  She gave birth at another hospital.

I love St. Maria Goretti!  That was the Catholic high school in Hagerstown MD.  Rodney Monroe went to school there then attended NC State.  That guy could play ball!

From Jennifer Bendery, Congressional correspondent for Huffington Post – Oct. 8, 2015
(Emphasis added – CA)
   WASHINGTON -- Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Thursday that the GOP's investigation into Planned Parenthood's use of federal funds hasn't turned up anything. "Did I look at the finances and have a hearing specifically as to the revenue portion and how they spend? Yes. Was there any wrongdoing? I didn't find any," he said during a Judiciary Committee hearing on the family planning provider.
    Chaffetz, a candidate for House speaker, grilled Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards during a five-hour hearing last week. He questioned her salary, asked about the organization's expenses and revenues, and pressed Richards on why the group had revenue of $127 million last year if it's a nonprofit. (Nonprofits put their revenues back into their programs.)
    But after all that, he concluded that Planned Parenthood isn't doing anything sketchy with its money. "Did we find any wrongdoing? The answer was no," Chaffetz said.
   His concession will be music to Democrats' ears, who have long accused Republicans of trying to sink Planned Parenthood because they oppose abortion. The women's health care provider gets about $500 million a year in federal funds, but federal law prohibits any of it from being used for abortions. Instead, the money is used to subsidize a range of health care services for low-income women, including birth control, cancer screenings and tests for sexually transmitted diseases.
   Republicans have been ramping up their attacks on Planned Parenthood after anti-abortion activists released heavily edited undercover videos a few months ago that purported to show the family planning provider selling fetal tissue after abortions. Multiple state investigations and a federal investigation have so far been unable to find any facts to support that claim.
   Planned Parenthood, which legally accepts money to cover the costs of transporting donated fetal tissue to medical researchers, has slammed the videos as "deceptively edited" and denies any wrongdoing.
   Chaffetz said Thursday that he still supports digging into Planned Parenthood's activities, even if they're using their money appropriately. "I think there will continue to be investigations," he said.
