The Room that Shouldn’t Exist

The following is By Bonnie Finnerty, Education Director for the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.

Baby in womb P.O.C. Three little letters.  Do they mean anything to you?

In the eyes of some, that’s all we really are.

Products of Conception.

Did you know that there is a special room at every abortion center called the POC lab?  It’s where abortion workers literally piece back together an aborted child, reassembling his torso, legs, arms, and head to make sure that the entire baby was suctioned from the mother’s uterus.   If every part of the baby is not accounted for, a remaining piece in the mother may cause infection and potentially death.

Former abortion worker turned pro-life activist Abby Johnson says that workers at her clinic would joke that the room was called the Pieces Of Children lab.

How can anyone joke about reassembling a tiny human like a jigsaw puzzle? Or actually do it?

Can they not see the clearly human features?  Can they not see the life that once was? The life that existed just moments earlier but was violently ended by the flip of a switch?

Not if you’ve been schooled in dehumanization.

Dozens of Legislators Demand Update on Investigation into Planned Parenthood

Members of Congress want a progress report after the latest undercover videos showed the abortion giant acknowledging ‘trafficking human fetal tissue from aborted infants.

Planned Parenthood Investigation

The following report from Life Site News concerning the sale of fetal body parts was authored by Martin Burger.  

A group of over 60 members of Congress asked the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide “an update on the status of the Department’s investigation into Planned Parenthood and its affiliates,” as well as “an explanation of steps it is taking to prioritize the enforcement of fetal trafficking laws altogether.”

The legislators sent their letter to U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr on June 26 after the release of a video by the Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood executives admitting under oath to selling body parts of aborted babies.

“In a shocking compilation of incriminating testimonies released in May, Planned Parenthood executives openly admit to trafficking human fetal tissue from aborted infants,” the letter pointed out. “For instance, uncovered exchanges in the video footage between Dorothy Furgerson, MD, the Director of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (PPMM), and research company, StemExpress, outline a contract for PPMM to sell fetal body parts to StemExpress at a rate of $65 per usable specimen.”

Not mentioned by the members of Congress, the video also showed how Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), while under investigation in 2015, told Congress that its Gulf Coast affiliate (PPGC) in Houston had “rebuffed” an undercover proposal to sell fetal livers for $750 per liver and $1,600 for liver/thymus pairs. But Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast senior director of abortion access Tram Nguyen testified that she “wanted to move forward with it,” as documented in contemporaneous emails between her and PPGC regional director Dyann Santos.

According to the more than 60 legislators, these admissions are “not only morally repugnant, to strip an unborn child for parts and sell them to the highest bidder, it is also a federal crime.”

In fact, federal law “clearly states that it is illegal for any person to ‘solicit or knowingly acquire, receive, or accept a donation of human fetal tissue for valuable consideration.’”

Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Monthly First Friday Life Chain Brings out Three Dozen Prayer Warriors

Pic 4

Three dozen pro-life citizens were present for the First Friday Life Chain on July 3rd in front the Warminster Planned Parenthood.  These prayer warriors stood on both sides of Louis Drive peacefully praying and giving witness to all who rode by as well as all who went into this killing center.

One  couple who joined our vigil told us they found out about the Life Chain while at a nearby diner.  They said they were speaking with the waitress about the abortion center in the area and she told them about the Monthly Life Chain.

After an hour of silent witness, the Life Chain ended with a prayer written by Sandy Slater and the singing of God Bless America.  Sandy is the president of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition.

This Life Chain, which is sponsored by the Coalition, is held on the First Friday of each month from 9:30 – 10:30 am.  We hope over the months that many more people will join with us to pray for an end to abortion at this facility and other facilities in Southeast Pennsylvania as well as across the country.

Below are pictures from today’s Life Chain courtesy of Steve Jackson, Vice-President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition.

Happy 4th of July

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Thomas Jefferson

Those words can be no further from the truth in the 21st Century. Even our founding fathers knew that right to life cannot be infringed. Sadly, that has been the case from Roe V Wade to scandals surrounding covid-19 positive patients in nursing homes and everything in between. Life is being infringed because statesmen, lawyers, judges, doctors, and even wealthy people can play God.

Our founding fathers risked their lives for giving up our freedom. Today, it is pushed to the back burner due to political correctness and even the popularity of marxist ideologies among younger people. 20% of Americans do not even know one signer of the Declaration of Independence, yet they can tell you about Che Guevara.

Let us never forget why we celebrate Independence Day. It’s more than BBQ, beach excursions, and fireworks. It is a day we celebrate America becoming a nation under God. Ronald Reagan once made the remark that if America forgets that their nation is under God, they will falter. He was right.

Our nation is so divided. We need to ask God to pour out his precious blood over our land and plead for him to heal it.

Suggestions To Celebrate the 4th

  1. Pray the Patriotic Rosary. Substitute the quotes with a reflection or scripture
  2. Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet. Offer it for the intention of the restoration of faith in America for every state. Example: Have mercy on Pennsylvania and on the whole world.
  3. Read the Declaration of Independence
  4. Learn about the Catholic roots of the Declaration of Independence
  5. Educate your family, friends, and even neighbors on the importance of life being an inalienable right.
  6. Offer communion, mass, and even Holy Hour for the reparations made against America.

On behalf of the Voices for Life team, we want to wish our fellow Americans a safe, Coll, and blessed Independence Day Weekend.

May God Bless and Save America

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD” Psalm 33:12

New Florida Law Protects Babies From Infanticide, But Planned Parenthood Opposed It

Demonstrating their loyalty to the billion-dollar abortion industry, Democrats blocked the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act at least 80 times last year

baby200

The following is a Life News article by Miciah Bilger.  It’s concerns a Florida law that protects babies who survive abortion.  

Florida Lawmakers added new protections for babies who survive abortions this week as growing evidence indicates that viable babies are born alive in botched abortions every year in the U.S.

Tampa Bay News 10 reports Florida already has a law in place that requires abortionists and support staff to provide medical care to a baby who is born alive from a botched abortion and transport the baby to a hospital. 

But the new law, signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday, increases the penalties for failing to provide that basic care.

Florida Senate Bill 404 makes it a third-degree felony for a doctor or medical worker to neglect to provide care to a baby who survives an abortion. Previously, the penalty was a misdemeanor.

“This law sends a clear message that here in Florida, we will do everything we can to prevent the abomination of infanticide in our state,” Senate President Bill Galvano said after the governor signed the law. “When a child miraculously survives this brutal medical procedure, that child’s life must be preserved and treated with great respect and care. The penalty for refusing to provide medical care to an infant struggling for life should be significant.”

Galvano thanked state Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, the lead sponsor, for her courageous leadership on the pro-life law.

Earlier this year, a Fox News investigation found that 40 known abortion survivors were documented in just three states between 2016 and 2018, including 19 in Florida. It is not clear from the report if any of the babies survived.

Abortions are legal for any reason up to 24 weeks of pregnancy in Florida. Premature babies now are surviving at 21 weeks of pregnancy, and, in 2018, the state reported 213 abortions at or after 21 weeks of pregnancy.

Despite the evidence, the abortion chain Planned Parenthood fought aggressively against the legislation. Stephanie Fraim, who runs the Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida affiliate, claimed the law threatens “a reinterpretation of our constitutional right to privacy and the right to a safe and legal abortion in Florida.”

But the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops and other pro-life leaders praised lawmakers for supporting the life-saving legislation, according to the Catholic News Service.

“As Catholics, we condemn abortion as a grave injustice that denies the fundamental human right to life. However, as long as abortion is legal, we support measures such as parental consent that will reduce the grave harm it inflicts,” they said in a statement.

Stargel’s law also requires a girl under 18 to have at least one parent’s permission before going through with an abortion. The bill includes exceptions for medical emergencies and allows a judge to grant permission instead of a parent.

Meanwhile, growing evidence indicates that babies are born alive in botched abortions every year in the U.S. Earlier this week, Minnesota, one of only a few states that keeps data on abortion survivors, reported three babies survived abortions in 2019.

Prayer in Reparation for Supreme Court Justices

We were all devastated  by the recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of the killing of innocent preborn children and felt betrayed in particular by Justice Roberts.  Below is a prayer written by Sandy Slater, President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition for our SC Justices.

When you are feeling angry or defeated, I hope that you remember first that God is in charge, and  then say this beautiful prayer that Sandy composed.  Prayer is the most powerful weapon on earth and we all need to remember that and pray more fervently and more often.

Let Us Pray

Lord God we come to you today united in prayer for an end to the cruel killing of innocent unborn lives who are not given the opportunity of taking their first breath.  We come to You humbly to do our part in praying for an end to this unconscionable treatment of babies that were meant to be born, to be happy, to romp and play as they grow and then some day answer your call by giving back to You as a doctor, lawyer, nurse and any other call that they heard from You.

You are a Judicial God, deeply concerned with laws and our human legal system. You are the Lawgiver, the Advocate, and the Judge of the earth; the very foundation of Your throne is righteousness and justice. We have your biblical teachings as our guide.  Our hearts cry out to You for forgiveness for each justice who decided against the Louisiana law which was about doctors having admitting privileges to a local hospital after an abortion procedure.  Lord, Chief Justice Roberts decided against the law which is identical to the Texas law that he voted for in 2016.  We ask forgiveness for ourselves for times that we have failed to pray for an end to injustices in our land.

Help me in my disappointment of Justice Roberts and all the justices that felt that women were deprived if the doctor had admitting privileges to a nearby hospital. Forgive them if there was any demonic influence in this decision.  We cry out to You for each Justice of the Supreme Court to remember that they should not play god from the bench.  They that are appointed for life.  Holy Spirit enlighten them with the gifts of Your Spirit especially of heavenly Wisdom, Understanding and Fortitude in this time of darkness.  Give to each as they deserve. We ask You this in Your name.  Amen.

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition is an organization that believes in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception to natural death.  We provide financial and material support to area crisis pregnancy care centers that endorse the sanctity of life.  To expand our mission, we provide information and education to the community.  Follow us on Facebook using this link.  

 

Pro-Life Berks Thanks all who Came out on Bridges Day

The following is a report from Kathy Kuhns of Pro-Life Berks on the National Bridges Day that was held last Friday, June 26th.  A few pictures are provided below.  

Thanks to all who came out yesterday for the National Pro-Life Bridges Day.  We had about 20 people there, with lots of flags, along with our pro-life banners.  Pro-Life Berks (PLB) will look into getting another large banner, so we can better cover both sides of the overpass.  Traffic was heavy and we got plenty of honks, waves and a thumbs up from several.  Always a fun event.  Plan to join us next time.   Today’s  Reading Eagle had a picture and article about the event.

Watch for the mega SCOTUS decisions coming up shortly; mainly, the June Medical vs. Ruzzo which is huge for the pro-life cause.  Lord help us.

The Wall Street Journal had, on Wed., June 25th, a scathing article on Gov. Wolf, including his picture.  It was good to see his dirty deeds so exposed.  The newspaper also had an ad in on Tues., the 24th paid for by Planned Parenthood.  The article touted, “Birth Control is Good for Business:  Essential for a healthy workforce, economic growth, race and gender equity.    More on this in the July newsletter.

Get ready to help with the upcoming elections  Of course we want to support our national candidates; but look to especially help our local candidates, such as Annette Baker who is running against Judy Schwank – strong pro-abort- for state senate.  Annette is totally pro-life.  Also, Vince Gagliardo, who is running for Tom Caltagirone’s seat who is also pro-life.  He’s running against Manny Guzman, who is pro-abortion.  What makes this race so important is that the 127th Legislative District includes Planned Parenthood, so this is really the first time we can alert the voters of this district about the a pro-life candidate who opposes the evil Planned Parenthood.  Caltagirone, voted pro-life often, but tolerated much of what PP did.   Remember the adage:  all politics is local.  Still true.

This is the year to be involved in the election process.  So often, sad to say, pro-life people and others ask themselves, “what’s in it for me?”, before getting involved.  It’s not about money, fame and power; still strong motivators.  We all need to think, “big picture”, which is our freedom and the blessings of being a U.S. citizen.  So, start telling your family and friends about our great candidates and plan to get involved.
In Christ,
Kathy K.
& PLB Board
