The Biggest Problem Facing America: The Sin and Evil of Abortion

“Life Begins at Conception”

As supporters of the sanctity of life, we seldom hear from young pregnant moms concerning their view on abortion. Below is a powerful message that this generation needs to hear. Tatiana shares all the reasons why abortion is evil and the most important issue facing our nation.

“We are under judgment in America.”

“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.”
Duet 30:19 NIV

What Does the Bible Say About Abortion?

A baby growing inside the womb. The gestational age is about seven months.

We’ve all heard the rhetoric from those who believe in a “woman’s right to choose”. Notice they never finish that statement. No one ever asks them to complete their sentence, a woman’s right to choose what? The only way to end that statement is “the right to choose life or death”. Their reasoning is based on a strictly humanistic view and not what the Word of God says about abortion.

Below is a powerful video produced by a young couple expecting their first baby. Click on the YouTube below as they share what the Bible has to say about abortion.

This young couple is the voice of their generation. Pray that the Lord will raise up many young people to stand up and speak out against abortion and for the sanctity of all human life.

Yet you are He who took me from the womb; You made me trust You at my mother’s breasts. On You was I cast from my birth, and from my mother’s womb You have been my God.
Psalm 22:9-10

Legislative Alert from PA Pro-Life Federation: Urgent Request to Call US Sen. Bob Casey, Jr

Senator Bob Casey, Jr

Dear Pro-Life Leaders,

We are issuing an urgent call to phone U.S. Senator Bob Casey’s office and urge him to vote No on the pro-abortion Women’s Health Protection Act. (The bill number is H.R. 3755/S.1975.)This dangerous bill has been called Roe v. Wade on steroids. It would wipe out pro-life laws such as our Abortion Control Act. That would mean no more parental consent, informed consent, or 24 hour waiting periods for abortion. It would also mean an expansion of taxpayer funding of abortion. We must stop this dangerous bill!We recommend calling both Senator Casey’s Washington office and one of his local offices. It is fine to leave a message. Here are his numbers, as listed on his website at https://www.casey.senate.gov/contact/offices :

Washington: 202-224-6324
Allentown: 610-782-9470
Bellefonte: 814-357-0314
Erie: 814-874-5080
Harrisburg: 717-231-7540
Philadelphia: 215-405-9660
Pittsburgh: 412-803-7370
Scranton: 570-941-0930

Please share this alert with your pro-life family and friends and all appropriate lists.
Thank you!

Rachel’s Vineyard Offers Weekend Retreat for Healing the Pain of Abortion in Doylestown, PA, October 15-17, 2021

The uncertainty in the world today continues to emotionally trigger those who have been wounded by abortion as well as other traumas in their lives.  The Divine Healer has asked them to come and they have answered His call. 

The following message is from Evelyn Walsh, Director of Rachel’s Vineyard in Doylestown.

My dear friends in the vineyard,

Praise God for you all and your generous spirit.  God is so good that we are blessed to host another Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat the weekend of October 15 – 17, 2021 at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa.  As of today, we may have a couple registration spots open, but since we were present at the Polish-American Festival this past weekend I’m expecting we will fill up very soon.  So, thank you in advance for your prayers.

The uncertainty in the world today continues to emotionally trigger those who have been wounded by abortion as well as other traumas in their lives.  The Divine Healer has asked them to come and they have answered His call.  They will finally “meet” their children and change that sadness to joy. 

Jesus waits for us all to visit Him in the Blessed Sacrament.  The power of your prayers for the intentions of the participants as well as our team members are an integral part of the retreat weekend.  You are team members who have a very important job to do before, during and after the Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat.  As we have done many times before, we will have Eucharistic Adoration from the beginning of our retreat on Friday, October 15th all the way through until it ends on Sunday, October 17th.  The team and participants are eternally grateful to you for taking the time to pray while everyone endures the spiritual battle as the hard work of reconciling with God and accepting His mercy and forgiveness occurs during this weekend. 
 
If it is possible for you to come to the Ave Maria Retreat House to spend a Holy Hour with Our Lord during our retreat, please contact Michelle Garges at (267) 374-0235 or mjgarges@verizon.net.  She is looking forward to hearing from you to schedule your time.  As we get closer to the retreat Michelle will advise you as to what the door code number is to the retreat house.  Please keep in mind that this is not a place for small children to join you.  If the sound of a small child or baby is heard by our group, it could possibly trigger a negative emotional response for the participant.  All conversations outside our meeting room in the foyer can be heard by us inside the room.  Please speak in hushed tones if the retreat is actively in progress. 

We go to great lengths to create a very safe environment for the retreatants to grieve their children and I would like to make sure that even though Our Lord loves the little ones to come to Him, this is one time we must keep the best interest of the retreatant in mind.  If you are new to the Ave Maria Retreat House, the Adoration Chapel is on the second floor straight up the stairs or you can take the elevator down the left hallway to go to the second floor.  The chapel is directly above our meeting room and I can assure you that your prayers are felt as a healing balm falling down upon us.  The enemy is not pleased with the beautiful healing achieved during this retreat.  Your prayers are an integral part of each participant feeling renewed, refreshed and healed by His love. 

You have my utmost gratitude for your prayers.  Please consider praying for the intentions of this Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat even though you may not be available to schedule time at the retreat house chapel to pray there.  Start praying even today to encourage anyone who is anxious about attending that weekend to find the courage to follow through with their decision to join us.  Praying the rosary is a great weapon and very effective as St. Pio of Pietrelcina reminds us.  The self-talk in our minds can sometimes stop us from doing a good work for ourselves.  We can all use a bit of encouragement at times.

As always, we love to receive your special treats such as cookies, cakes, brownies, pies, (sweets of any kind really ;).  Offering healthier appetizers (hummus, pita chips, veggies or fruits) round out our snack table during our breaks throughout the weekend.  If you would like to drop off food, please contact me in advance as to what it is you plan to bring so that I can keep a list (so that we don’t end up with 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies :). 

And, if it’s on your heart and you have the means to donate financially to offer scholarships to those in need it would be most helpful.  May God bless you for your generosity.

If you feel called to help in any of the recommended ways I’ve mentioned, please email or call me at (215) 317-5752.

May God’s peace be with you always,
Evelyn Walsh
Director, Rachel’s Vineyard – Doylestown

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt Signs 9 New Laws to Protect Babies From Abortion

Across the nation, pro-life governors are taking bold action to ensure that state laws reflect the will of their constituents and the clear science showing the humanity of unborn children 

Mallory Quigley of Life News reported on the details of the Oklahoma Pro-Life legislation signed into law by Gov. Kevin Stitt.

Today SBA (Susan B Anthony) List President Marjorie Dannenfelser joined Governor Kevin Stitt (R) on the ground in Oklahoma for a ceremony to celebrate the signing of nine new pro-life laws this year to protect unborn children and their mothers in the Sooner State. The new laws will:

  • Protect babies from abortion once the unborn child’s heartbeat is detected.
  • Safeguard women and girls from dangerous chemical abortion drugs.
  • Require regulations on chemical abortion drugs to be processed through the State Board of Pharmacy.
  • Require abortionists to be board certified in obstetrics and gynecology.
  • Label abortion under state statutes as a procedure of “unprofessional conduct.”
  • Restore Oklahoma’s prohibition on abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
  • Protect relinquished children by extending the time frame they can be relinquished to rescuers and directs OSDH to award grants for the newborn to be placed into a “Baby Box.”
  • Require birthing centers and other medical facilities to keep a written policy to better honor the remains of a child who was stillborn or miscarried.
  • Prohibit fetal trafficking.

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser remarked:

“Governor Stitt has kept his promise to sign every piece of pro-life legislation that reaches his desk. He is at the forefront of nationwide momentum to challenge the status quo and modernize our extreme abortion laws. Across the nation, pro-life governors are taking bold action to ensure that state laws reflect the will of their constituents and the clear science showing the humanity of unborn children. As radical Democrats in Washington push abortion on demand through birth, paid for by taxpayers, and seek to expand dangerous abortion drugs, strong pro-life leaders in statehouses are critically important – and they are stepping up like never before.

“Life is winning in Oklahoma and across America. I’m proud to stand with Governor Stitt at this historic moment and thank him for his leadership on behalf of pro-life Americans.”

Governor Stitt added:

“I promised Oklahomans I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise. As a father of six, it’s an honor to be the most pro-life governor in the country and I will always step up to protect the lives of unborn children.”

University Admits Harvesting Kidneys From Unborn Babies While Their Hearts are Still Beating

“Law enforcement and public officials should act immediately to bring the next Kermit Gosnell to justice under the law.” David Daleiden, Center for Medical Progress

Micaiah Bilger of Life News authored the following article.

New documents obtained from the federal government suggest that aborted babies may be being born alive and left to die at the University of Pittsburgh so that their organs may be used for scientific research.

The University of Pittsburgh is the same place where researchers implanted second-trimester aborted babies’ scalps onto rodents to study the human immune system.

On Tuesday, Judicial Watch and the Center for Medical Progress said they obtained 252 pages of new documents about the university’s practices from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. HHS provided the documents after the groups filed a Freedom of Information Act request and later a lawsuit when the agency did not follow through.

The documents show that the federal government gave the University of Pittsburgh at least $2.7 million in federal tax dollars over the past five years to become a “tissue hub” for aborted baby body parts for scientific research.

“These documents show taxpayer money is being used to turn the University of Pittsburgh into a one-stop human fetal tissue shop – from procuring the tissue from elective abortions, ‘subdividing’ the human remains, to distributing and shipping the harvested tissue,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.

Even worse, David Daleiden, founder and president of the Center for Medical Progress, said evidence in the documents suggests late-term aborted babies may be being delivered alive before their organs are harvested.

“Infants in the womb, some old enough to be viable, are being aborted alive and killed for organ harvesting, in order to bring in millions of dollars in taxpayer funding for Pitt and the Planned Parenthood abortion business it supports,” Daleiden said. “Law enforcement and public officials should act immediately to bring the next Kermit Gosnell to justice under the law.”

Gosnell was a Philadelphia abortionist who was convicted of conducting late-term abortions where babies were born alive before he killed them. He is serving life in prison.

In the documents, the University of Pittsburgh mentions “labor induction” as a “procedure that will be used to obtain the tissue,” according to the Center for Medical Progress.

Labor induction abortions are basically what they sound like; the abortionist typically injects digoxin or another poison into the unborn baby’s heart to kill him/her and then induces labor so that the mother gives birth to her dead baby’s body. This method is used in later second- and third-trimester abortions.

If digoxin is not used – and the Center for Medical Progress found that scientists want “fetal tissue” without digoxin because the poison interferes with their research, there is a chance of the baby being born alive. Research indicates up to 50 percent of labor-induction abortions without digoxin can result in an infant born alive.

The Center for Medical Progress and Judicial Watch also noted that the University of Pittsburgh boasted about offering “rapid access to very high quality tissue,” including the freshness of the aborted babies’ body parts.
