Skip to comments.100 Protest abortion issue outside Mayo Clinic Health System-Franciscan Healthcare

One woman even traveled from hours away just to join the protest.
"I just came today, I have been here a few other times, said Diane Dorman, a pro-life activist.
"It's a long drive for me, so I come when I can stay a long time, when I feel like it can be meaningful, said Dorman.
But Dorman said that the two-hour drive is nothing when it comes to fighting for what she believes in.
"From the very beginning, I've come to realize that life begins at the moment of conception, said Dorman. "It's unfathomable that a doctor here would actually refer people to himself at another hospital to actually perform an abortion."
Chris Hoover decided to join the protest for the first time on Wednesday, but it's for a different reason.
I just want there to be another side to the story, said Hoover.
For Hoover, his story is a personal one.
My wife has pre-cancer in her uterus, said Hoover.
Hoover and his wife have health insurance through Mayo Clinic Health System.
If his wife were to get pregnant, for her health, it may not be safe to keep the baby.
"Obviously I want it to be the absolute last choice, said Hoover. But I want all of my options to be there and I want my doctor to be informed."
Hoover and Dorman may never see eye-to-eye, but they do have one thing in common, and that is standing up for what they believe in.
La Crosse Bishop William Callahan did release a statement in regards to the protest. The statement reads, "It must be noted [...] that abortions have not been performed in the past, nor will they be tolerated in the future at Mayo Clinic Health System-Franciscan Healthcare."

The man with the wife who has pre-cancer does appear to have a serious concern. I do know that the RC Church will approve abortions for the life of the mother - but not for convenience of the mom, or for her ‘mental health’.
We need more to protest abortion.
No, the Roman Catholic Church does NOT ever approve of abortion. NOT EVER. As in NEVER. Not for any reason.
