August 29, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Newly released video footage shows Democrat gubernatorial candidates Tyler Olson and Jack Hatch joining abortion activists in an extended prayer in thanksgiving for abortionists, asking for increased abortion access, and decrying the fact that women have been "made afraid of their own power by their paternalistic religion."
The five-minute prayer begins, "We give thanks, O Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care, and pray that they may be kept safe."
"We pray for the 45 million American women who have had safe, legal abortions. May they stand tall and refuse shame," the prayer continues. "We pray for elected officials, that they may always support a woman's right to make her own medical decisions."
The prayer was led by abortion activist Midge Slater, according to the Iowa Republican. It was part of a rally by abortion activists ahead of a hearing on proposed rules banning the practice of having abortionists in a remote location dispense abortion drugs to women via webcam.
