Parishioners at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles ushered pro-abortion protesters out of their church Sunday, thwarting their attempt to disrupt the service, according to footage posted by the Catholic News Agency.
During the church service, pro-abortion demonstrators walked between pews toward the front of the church in an apparent attempt to reach the altar before being blocked by parishioners and escorted out of the building, according to the footage shared by the Catholic News Agency.
The protest came days after a leaked draft opinion revealed the Supreme Court would likely overturn Roe v. Wade and return the power to restrict and regulate abortions to the states. The pro-abortion group Ruth Sent Us called for protesters to disrupt church services following the news and shared a video of a similar protest Tuesday.
Roughly five women wearing red gowns and large white hats attempted to walk to the front of the church as a priest guided the parishioners in prayer, according to the footage. Ushers blocked protesters from walking to the altar, and several men exited their pews to help ushers escort them out of the building.
The protesters’ costumes appeared to be a reference to The Handmaid’s Tale, a dystopian novel frequently used by pro-abortion activists to suggest that abortion restrictions impede women’s rights.
“You’re attacking me right now, you started attacking me,” one protester yelled at the usher blocking her from moving to the front of the church, according to the video.
“Respect us,” several parishioners said out of camera view in the footage.
The yelling from the protesters and the individuals escorting them out of the building drowned out the guided prayers, and people kneeling in their pews stared as the scene unfolded, according to the footage.
“You guys want respect, we want respect,” one parishioner told the protesters as he walked them out. “I promise you, I understand you completely.”
Four protesters exited the church, escorted by several parishioners, while one protester continued to move toward the altar and was blocked by about a dozen parishioners, according to the footage.
“I have a right as an American,” she screamed as she was led out of the church. “Get your hands off me,” she yelled repeatedly in the video. She continued yelling until the end of the video after she had left the camera’s view.

Liberals are dangerous nutjobs.
Liberalism is a mental illness.
Yes! Liberals (and extreme conservatives, too!) are often “dangerous nutjobs,” as many are actually unstable, unbalanced, radical, and mentally ill misfits! Liberals are actually very shallow, unrealistic, incompetent, foolish, and immature in their thinking, analyzing, and understanding of serious matters in life. Many will blindly accept and believe bizarre lies and schemes, based on immature emotional prejudices. For example, a man insisting that he is actually a “woman,” refusing blindly to accept and deal with reality– and immature, mentally unstable, liberal college professors, who intellectually proclaim that this man is “correct.” Today, we have a whole bizarre, unstable, immature, and immoral society of “liberal misfits and nutjobs!” In good societies, such people are laughed at, never taken seriously.
There is a huge lie connected with abortion supporters. What they are really seeking, is extremely immoral and unrealistic: “free sex” with no responsibility– denying and lying about God’s purpose for sex, creating new human beings. These immature people unrealistically think that everything they want in life is “free,” with no responsibilities, no restrictions, and they can “party all day,” if they “choose” — with no restrictions, no Moral Consciemce. And they naively believe that they can just change the laws, to suit themselves: “get rid of a baby,” kill the baby legally, if they want — to protect their shockingly immature and immoral way of life.
In regards to my post of May 12 at 1:53pm– a man who wants to be a woman due to a case of Gender Dysphoria, and a radical leftist college professor who supports this mental illness on a false intellectual basis– knows the truth. You cannot change a man into a woman, even surgeries cannot authentically “play God,” and do that. However, immature goofballs and intellecttual radicals, do not think in a mature, rational, balanced, truthful way. Their style of “thinking” is radical, immature, hysterical, emotional, and self-centered. They are similar to a drunk holding a drink in his hand, denying that he has the drink, denying that he is drunk, completely refusing to face and accept reality– like a big baby.
No compromises with these people. They are totally wrong. Just show them the door. Strongarm them out, if necessary.
“Ruth sent us”? More like Satan sent us. They do the works of their father, the devil.
The Vatican Synod on Synodality website has several positive stories of adoptions by gay couples, including one about how a woman decided not to abort her child, and instead, gave her son up for adoption to a gay male couple. The website noted that this decision was “life-affirming,” saving the boy’s life from death by abortion. This website also had stories of gay adoptions, by “married” gays employed as Catholic school teachers.
My comment of May 10th at 9:17pm was edited. I think the Vatican needs to strongIy champion Pro Life, and Traditional, Biblical Christian Marriage, worldwide! And publicly excommunicate “bad Catholic” pro-abortion, pro-LGBT-agenda politicians!
It is a big scare, since poor Cardinal Zen got arrested. He was working with a pro-democracy group in Hong Kong, and was
on the Board of Trustees. Can the Vatican do something to free him from this horrible situation? A big worry!
Poor Cardinal Zen was just released on bail– but his situation is very scary! Hope the Vatican can help! He needs lots of prayers, too!
I accidentally gave you a thumbs down. I should not have clicked on it at all as I was not sure what was meant in your 9:17 a.m. post yet. Sorry.
As many already know, the Pope and Vatican have unfortunately warmly invited formerly-condemned, gay-“marriage”- promoting clerics snd nuns, to be a part of the Synod on Synodality. Cardinal Hollerich, the Synod Relator General, wants to change the Catechism, saying that it is “outdated” on Marriage and sexuality, and must include gay “marriage” and gay sex unions. This false heretical stance is a terrible hypocrisy!! Our Church must stand unified on Catholic teaching and morality– that would greatly help to deter immoral, radical protesters!
I watched the entire clip. Listen closely to the young male parishioner on the left (bald/bearded/dark T-shirt/gesticulating). He actually responded, “I understand. We are with you”. Huh? “We are with you”? No, we are not “with you”. This is the problem with our Church and some of our people sitting in the pews. Defending our faith has taken a back seat to capitulating and pandering.
“I have a right as an American.”
“The world has heard enough of the so-called ‘rights of man.’ Let it now hear of the rights of God.”

The red cosplay outfits remind me of Carol Burnett as Scarlet O’Hara, “I saw it hanging in the window and just had to have it.” Next time you see them, laugh. The Devil hates it.
This movement is approved by the president of the U.S., who swears to be a devout Catholic, and Pelosi, who also swears to be a devout Catholic….where is the outrage toward these two people? How do they still receive Communion? Until this “leadership” is removed, our country and our Church will continue to spiral downhill….
The entire nation was warned about this happening in Catholic churches, but the archdiocese didn’t even prepare?
How did security allow these women to get that far into the cathedral? And what would’ve happened without these laymen?
They sneak in with the costumes in their handbags, then they don their bonnets and capes and make a scene
without being snarky,
unaddressed guilt from abortion
is an inescapable side effect.
this is not the primary reason for the malice
of abortion but it’s huge and it’s real.
with so many post-abortive women in the culture,
many of the “insane” stuff we have been seeing are
to be expected. And it’s NOT just women …. for some
reason i cannot explain – it really is contagious
I have always stongly believed in
natural gender roles, for a good, healthy, thriving society.. Each gender, Man and Woman, is wonderfully made, by God! I think all children should grow up, proud and happy to be a boy or a girl! For those kids who do not exactly fit the usual gender roles, let them be guided by parents to comfortably do the things they like best– but nothing bizarre. A boy might grow up to be a good cook, hairdresser, or clothes designer. A girl might grow up to be a fine athlete, a heart surgeon, or a mountaineer– but she is definitely still a girl, and in need of protection, if she chooses a rugged field. I have always viewed “feminism” as un-feminine, unnatural, crass, ugly, and degrading to women. Some young women incorporate feminist ideas into a Christian concept, which is fine. I believe a woman must always have her own mind, speak up, direct her own life, and be respected by men, in every way– and never be taken advantage of, hurt, or abused in any way, by men– because she is not as big, tough, and strong, as they are.
