A pale half-moon hung in the blue sky on a cold, windy morning Saturday as about 60 Catholics prayed across the street from Tulsa’s only abortion clinic.
It was a ritual that has been going on several times a week for years.
But now it is different. They were standing on land owned by the Diocese of Tulsa.
Two months ago, the diocese bought just under a half-acre empty lot across the street from the Reproductive Services of Tulsa, 6136 E. 32nd Place.
“This gives us a place where we can hold prayer, and support of life, … and a place to offer support for people that might otherwise choose abortion,” said Tim Sullivan, executive director of Catholic Charities.
