Office Depot Criticized for Refusing to Print Pro-Life Prayer Sheets Written by Priest

A woman in an Chicago suburb went to her local Office Depot to have some fliers printed up for her pro-life event. But the folks at Offie Depot refused to print up the sheets because it was anti-Planned Parenthood.

The woman went to an Office Depot in Schaumburg which is a north western suburb of Chicago.

Office Depot is accused of discriminating against the Roman Catholic faith after a Rolling Meadows woman says employees told her that making copies of an anti-abortion prayer violated company policy, according to a report.

At an Office Depot in Schaumburg, 42-year-old Maria Goldstein had recently ordered 500 copies of ‘A Prayer for the Conversion of Planned Parenthood.’ She was hoping to pass them out at her parish, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The Chicago Tribune reports the prayer calls on God to “Bring an end to the killing of children in the womb, and bring an end to the sale of their body parts. Bring conversion to all who do this, and enlightenment to all who advocate it.”

However, a spokeswoman for Office Depot told the Chicago Tribune that company policy prohibits “the copying of any type of material that advocates any form of racial or religious discrimination or the persecution of certain groups of people.”

“The flier contained material that advocates the persecution of people who support abortion rights,” the spokeswoman told the Chicago Tribune.

Here is the actual prayer that was on the flier….

Lord, for whom all things are possible,
We are confronted once again today
With the evil of the abortion industry
And the corruption found
In the world’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood.

Lord, we pray for all who plan to be parents,
And we ask your mercy on those
Who teach others to reject parenthood.

In the light of your Word, Lord,
We affirm today that children are a blessing from you,
And that the origin of all parenthood
Is likewise in You, the God of life and love.

Therefore, Oh God,
We stand against the evil that has been exposed
In Planned Parenthood
And in the entire abortion industry.

We stand today for the triumph
Of truth over falsehood,
Of light over darkness,
And of life over death.

Bring an end to the killing of children in the womb,
And bring an end to the sale of their body parts.
Bring conversion to all who do this,
And enlightenment to all who advocate it.

Close the doors of the death camps in our midst,
And open the doors of your mercy and healing!
Close the grisly trade in baby body parts,
And open the abundant gifts of your salvation and life!

Hasten the day when our land
Will no longer be stained with innocent blood,
And when the bodies of all your children
Will be raised from the dead
And set free forever.

We pray in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen!

–Rev. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life

So, now inoffensive prayers that pray for the lives of children are forbidden?
