Liturgy on abortion by Catholics for Free Choice

Catholics for Choice (then called Catholics for Free Choice) has the following liturgy to celebrate abortion:

“Praised be you, Mother and Father God, that you have given your people the power of choice. We are saddened that the life circumstances of (aborting woman’s name) are such that she has had to choose to terminate her pregnancy. We affirm her and support her in her decision.”

The litergents then”sprinkle flower petals, or share dried flowers.”
