In the aftermath of the leaked Supreme Court opinion, a pro-choice group called Ruth Sent Us called for demonstrations protest at Catholic churches across the country over the Mother’s Day Weekend, Yahoo News reports.

Nevertheless, Christians prepared to meet protestors in love. Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, senior pastor at New Season Christian Worship Center in Sacramento, CA told Fox News Digital: “Protest and disruptions to churches by pro-abortion advocates on Mother’s Day will result” in several things. “Protesters filled with anger will be met by worshippers filled with love,” he said. “Disrupters attempting to cause harm will be met by people of faith committed to saving lives.”
