Lord have mercy!
Franciscan Friar Fr. Fidelis Moscinski, CFR was arrested and dragged from an abortion facility on Sat., Nov. 27 in White Plains, New York during a Red Rose Rescue campaign. The clinic kills babies up to 24 weeks in the womb.
Police arrested the priest and two other individuals for counseling and praying for women inside an abortion clinic. Several sidewalk counselors remained outside the facility.
Red Rose Rescue said in a press release that the three people inside the abortion clinic “prayed, counseled mothers, and dialogued with staff (and police) inside the abortion facility for over two hours.”
“We stayed inside the building to be faithful patient advocates for the moms and their tiny little ones in the womb,” said Will Goodman, one of the men arrested. “In conscience, we could not leave while innocent people were in harm’s way.”
The campaign explained that the arrested individuals were “released unharmed.”
Their court date is set for Dec. 13, also the day the Archdiocese of New York celebrates the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the unborn.

The group also said that approximately “seven mothers entered the facility during the rescue. Each received compassionate pro-life counseling. One mother freely chose to leave the abortuary, and was in tears as she departed. This young mother was offered help and did not return to the abortuary.”
