A Louisville, Kentucky police officer drew the ire of the local abortion mill for having the audacity to pray outside their facility while he was off the clock. That’s right, the abortionists wanted to control what this officer did in his free time, just because he had his uniform on underneath a jacket. The only thing more sad than this move from the abortion mill is the fact that the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department initially capitulated to their unwarranted outrage.
Early one Saturday morning, the unnamed officer drove to the abortion facility to join others who were praying outside. When he got out of his car, he put on a jacket to conceal his uniform. He stayed in front of the facility for around forty-five minutes to pray and hold a sign saying “Pray to End Abortion” before getting back in his car, removing the jacket, and driving off to begin his shift.
For this totally lawful and appropriate behavior, the officer was placed on administrative leave with pay. However, in the four months he was placed on leave, his income went down substantially because he was barred from working overtime hours. The department eventually let the officer come back to work, but every liberty-loving American should be asking why this officer should have to take a pay cut for the crime of praying.
This shows you just how nasty pro-abortion people can be if you do not go along with their demands. In the name of “protecting women’s health,” they want to bring professional discipline down on those that use their free time to pray for the end of the barbaric practices taking place in America’s abortion mills. Clearly, the abortionists must fear the power of prayer, which they should.
Regardless, America needs fearless police department heads who will protect the liberties of their officers, even when a vocal minority stands against them. Every police officer should enjoy the same right as every other American to peaceably assemble in their off-time. I commend this Louisville officer who bravely did his part to help end the scourge of abortion in America.
