Exciting New Pro-life Legislation Kicks off Monday, Oct 21 in Pennsylvania

Heartbeat.jpg
Pennsylvania Heartbeat Bill Being Introduced on Monday

 

The following is from the Pennsylvania Family Institute.  They are looking for as many people as possible to attend this rally.  Please gather in the Media Room in the Capitol basement at 10:00 am.  

On Monday, October 21st, Senator Doug Mastriano (R-Adams) and State Representative Stephanie Borowicz (R-Clinton) will help lead other elected officials and pro-life Pennsylvanians in introducing Senate Bill 912 and House Bill 1977 – the Heartbeat Bill. The introductory press conference is open to the public and we encourage you to join us at the announcement starting at 10 am at the PA State Capitol.

What is the Heartbeat Bill? This legislation would improve our current state law by protecting unborn children from abortion after a heartbeat is detected. Under current law, abortion is permitted up through 24 weeks into pregnancy (six months in pregnancy) – an outdated determination of life based on the subjective nature of viability. Pennsylvania’s Heartbeat Bill would protect thousands of babies every year throughout our state.

Take Action: When you hear a heartbeat, you hear life. Please contact your State Senator and State Representative in support of the Heartbeat Bill – click here to email them your support.

If you would like to attend the Heartbeat Bill press conference / rally on Monday, October 21, please contact Dan Bartkowiak at dbart@pafamily.org.

We will have plenty more to share on Monday and in the weeks to come so stay tuned.

 

Prayer Project Rally Tomorrow at 10 AM at the Planned Parenthood in Reading, Pa.

Saturdays are busy days for pro-life warriors in Pennsylvania.  Most go to the abortion centers in their cities to pray and give witness or to offer help to women seeking abortions.  My parish is having a Prayer Rally at the site of vandalism of our Memorial Crosses.   And Prayer Warriors in Berks County are being urged to come out for a rally at the Planned Parenthood in Reading (map) as part of their Prayer Project.  Please see the information below from Kathy Kuhns.   

Prayer project

Please be at Reading Planned Parenthood tomorrow, Sat., 10 AM for the Prayer Project Rally.  We’ll be storming heaven with our prayers to close the place down for good.  We’ll also be thanking God for what He’s already done.  Pastor Joe Sclafani will lead the prayers.

We have some signs and t-shirts, so just ask.  You can also bring your own sign, but no graphic signs please.
Sorry to say the Reading Eagle is unable to cover our event due to so many other events going on at the same time.  They were very nice and have always covered our events, so we can’t complain.
Also, Pro-Life Berks on BCTV, Monday, Oct 21st, 8 PM.  Change of schedule.  Rep. Muesser couldn’t make it and will be on the program in February.  Scott and Joel will discuss lost fatherhood when their children were aborted.
See you tomorrow.  Rain or shine!

 

Guidelines for Praying and Bible Verses

Pennsylvania Action Alert! Please Contact Your Legislators – SPREAD THE WORD!

The following urgent request is from Ted Meehan of Delaware County, Pennsylvania. 
Please residents of Pennsylvania, take the actions below on the Down Syndrome Bill in the Senate,  the Censure Motion of Rep Brian Sims in the House,  the Heartbeat Bill in both the House and the Senate. 
Ted has supplied the contact information for you on these bills. When you’ve completed these tasks, please share with all your pro-life family and friends in Pennsylvania. 

Pennsylvania action alert
When our founders gave us our Constitution, they emphasized three categories of rights above all others. Life, Liberty, and Property. The first of these has been under assault for the past half century – but you and I have stood up to demand protection of Life from our elected representatives.

And today I am asking you to do THREE Tasks – and spread the word to your networks so that we flood the offices of our senators and state reps. Please send an email AND leave a voicemail.

1) PASS HB 321 (in Subject Line)
 To Senators
Joe Scarnati  jscarnati@pasen.gov
             (717) 787-7084
Jake Corman  jcorman@pasen.gov
             (717) 787-1377
Michele Brooks  mbrooks@pasen.gov
             (717) 787-1322
“Please move the Down Syndrome Bill (HB 321) out of the Health Committee and bring it up for a vote by the Full Senate.” (This bill has already passed in the House 117-76.)

2) To Reps in the House Censure Motion of Rep Brian Sims
Please contact the State Rep in your area (Find contact info here  and ask them to co-sponsor the Censure Motion of Rep Brian Sims – who last spring had harassed and intimidated ladies and young girls who had been praying outside Planned Parenthood in Philadelphia. He used his status as a State Rep to try to scare them, while he insulted their religious beliefs, and offered a $100 reward for anyone who could identify these ladies and girls so he could harass them further in their own neighborhoods. He then posted a video of the entire assault on the internet! Despite many calls upon him to apologize, Sims remains defiant. So a Motion to Censure is to be introduced next week. Please ask your state rep to co-sponsor this Motion AND vote to Censure Rep Sims.

3) Both Senators and State Reps Heartbeat Bill
Please ask them to co-sponsor HB 1977 – Heartbeat Bill. You can find contact info here.
May the Lord of Life bless your efforts and multiply them to His greater Glory and Honor!

Even the Mourning Doves Know Abortion is Wrong

Standing outside praying and giving witness at an abortion center can be a very emotional time.  You’re standing outside of our modern-day  ‘death camps’ and praying for those inside.  We pray for  the mother’s to have a change of heart and seek the help they need to bring their babies to term.  We pray for the conversion of those who provide, promote and support abortion.  We pray for our sidewalk servants that God will send His Holy Spirit upon them and give them the words they need when speaking to these distraught mothers.  And we pray for an end of abortion in our country and throughout the world. 

One of our 40 Days for Life prayer warriors has given me an account of her experience outside our local Planned Parenthood to share.  Even  the mourning doves know that abortion is wrong.  

Mourning doves

from Michele Harte

There were at least 70-80 mourning doves on a telephone wire across from the Planned Parenthood in Warminster, PA on September 30th. While I was there praying for the souls of aborted children, as well as, the misguided souls having the abortions and those involved in every aspect of the process these birds were there. They were facing and staring at the building where these atrocities were taking place. The birds did not move the entire almost two hours that I was there praying. They may have changed positions, but they remained there the whole time.

There is still time to sign up for the 40 Days for Life Campaign.  Please use this link to find a campaign in your area.  

Michelle Harte lives in Central Bucks County and is a member of our church’s Respect Life Ministry.  

Prayer Vigil to be Held at Site of Vandalism at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Buckingham Township, Pennsylvania

crosses

As the abortion battle heats up and we get closer to Roe v Wade being reversed, we are seeing and experiencing hate crimes committed against pro-life advocates and pro-life materials at an ever increasing rate.

We have read stories on Life News about pro-life signs being destroyed, pro-life prayer warriors being assaulted and in our own area one of our state legislators even went so far as to verbally harass and dox a middle age woman and three teens.

This past weekend, vandals struck again at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church  in Central Bucks County, destroying many of the memorial crosses we have on our grounds at the corner of Route 413 and Cold Creamery Roads. These crosses are put up each year to remember the lives taken through abortion since 1973.

Our first reaction was shock, then anger.  How do we get past this anger?   Through prayer!

Please join us for a prayer vigil on Saturday, October 19th at 12 noon at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church at the same corner where our memorial crosses are placed. (map)

Our intention is two-fold, to prayer for the person(s) who committed this destruction, and to give witness to the community that, in the words of Father Pavone’s  Prayer to End Abortion, ‘we will never be silent, never be passive, never be forgetful of the unborn.  That we will commit ourselves to be active in the pro-life movement, and never stop defending life until all our brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all’.

Planned Parenthood Confirms Plans to Open Abortion Clinic in KCK

Below is a press release from Ron Kelsey, President of Planned Parenthood Exposed.  If you live in or around Kansas City, KS, we encourage you to attend the prayer rally they have planned for October 26th.  Details  are below.  

Planned Parenthood Exposed continues the Stop Planned Parenthood in KCK campaign

 

Stop PP

[KANSAS CITY, KS, Oct 10—] Planned Parenthood Exposed launched a grassroots campaign that resulted in a lease to Planned Parenthood at 1854 Minnesota Ave in KCK being cancelled in Sept, according to the building owner. But Planned Parenthood is not finished in their plans to open in KCK.

Planned Parenthood lobbyist, Rachel Sweet, stated on Oct 2 at the Kansas Special Committee on the Judiciary meeting that Planned Parenthood was excited about exploring options to open a location in Wyandotte County. They plan on offering the full spectrum of care, which presumably includes abortions. This planned KCK location is one result of the recent Kansas Supreme Court ruling that alleged to find a right to abortion in the state constitution.

On Oct 2 Planned Parenthood also announced the opening of a mega-abortion clinic in Illinois, 15 miles from St. Louis. Missouri has strong laws regulating abortion. It appears that the Illinois clinic is Planned Parenthood’s east bookend to Missouri and the planned KCK clinic is the west bookend, in terms of Planned Parenthood’s abortion plans.

Planned Parenthood Exposed is committed to battling the plans for the Planned Parenthood KCK clinic by engaging the residents of Kansas and Missouri to publicly oppose this planned abortion clinic which will conduct its business primarily in the bi-state area. “We stand opposed to Planned Parenthood plans in KCK and its involvement in the business of killing unborn children” said Ron Kelsey, president of Planned Parenthood Exposed.

A prayer rally will be held on Saturday, Oct 26 at 10:00 am on the public sidewalks at 701 N 7th St, Kansas City, KS 66101, in front of the offices of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Ks.

If you would like more information about this prayer rally, please contact Ron Kelsey at  at  ronkelsey10@gmail.com.

Planned Parenthood Exposed is a non-profit corporation dedicated to educating the public about the evils of Planned Parenthood including its business of killing unborn children and its promotion of sexual immorality to youth.
