Kansas Church Invites Community To Come Celebrate 42 Years Of Abortion
According to recent reports, St. James Episcopal Church in Wichita, Kan., is preparing to mark the 42nd anniversary of legalized abortion with a chili dinner on church grounds later this month.
Tickets range from $20 to $1,000 for the Planned Parenthood-sponsored event, which promises “an evening of stimulating conversation, refreshments and CHILI!”

The event, dubbed Chili for Choice, is one of many anniversary celebrations planned throughout the nation to mark another year of allowing American women to legally kill their unborn children. Concerts and celebrity appearances mark many of these gatherings; however, an ostensibly Christian church willing to openly endorse abortion has attracted significant social media criticism.
Some outlets called on pro-life advocates to call the church in an effort to convince leaders to reconsider its partnership with Planned Parenthood. One such call was posted online.
While a church spokesperson admitted St. James teamed up with the organization, she denied the local affiliate has performed any abortions. Nevertheless, with an event celebrating ‘choice,’ a ubiquitous euphemism for abortion, critics were not shy in expressing their displeasure. WJ
