Spiritual and Temporal Proposals for a Pro-Life Response from Philadelphia Catholics to Coronavirus Concerns

The following is from Mike McMonagle, President of the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania.   

Renew

An Opportunity to Repent and Renew

The Catholic Church in our area – and throughout America – has led the pro-life movement’s response to the vast Culture of Death, particularly the killing of children before birth by abortion. She has equipped and exhorted many of Her Members to save millions of lives, mitigate God’s Judgment for this unspeakable crime, and provide realistic hope of ending this deadly injustice. The current coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns offer challenges to overcome and opportunities to assist the Church efforts to build a Culture of Life.

I propose that our spiritual and temporal responses include the following actions.

  • Re-open the Churches for voluntary attendance with social distancing
  • Call for repentance, healing not normalcy, nurturing, and renewed pro-life activities
  • Urge our civil leaders to act consistently with their own directives and close the surgical abortion facilities

The efforts of most Catholics involved in the pro-life movement receive tremendous benefits from regular Mass attendance and receipt of the Eucharist. However, because of COVID-19 concerns – and despite the ease of social distancing at almost all daily and Sunday Masses – Churches are closed, even though civil authorities allow for “life sustaining” services to remain open. The Mass and the Eucharist remain an essential life-sustaining service. The COVID-19 crisis offers an opportunity for Catholic clergy to proclaim their faith in the power of the Mass and Eucharist – and for the laity to make prudential judgments about attending Mass and receiving the Eucharist.

Our spiritual responses to COVID-19 concerns also need to include a call to repentance for the continuing vast practice of killing children before  birth in our nation and Archdiocese, which is, respectively, about one million and 30,000. Our nation is witnessing heroic actions by our relatively few medical providers in an effort to save those most vulnerable to COVID-19. Yet, our nation continues to overlook – and even applaud – the intentional killing, in far greater numbers, by other medical personnel of the most vulnerable among us – those children conceived but not yet born. Perhaps God is allowing our COVID-19 concerns and hardships to awaken us from this inconsistency and apathy – and make some reparation for our Culture of Death.

For certain, Scripture teaches us that God allowed the destruction of Israel and the Babylonian Captivity because Israel sacrificed their children to the pagan god, Moloch. President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that God allowed the vast death and destruction of the Civil War as a chastisement for our nation’s practice and toleration of slavery.

The distortion of human sexuality and freedom into license has caused most of the manifestations of our nation’s current Culture of Death, particularly killing children before birth. The COVID-19 crisis is resulting in reduced physical contact and loss of individual freedom.

Meanwhile, leading pro-abortion public officials, such as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who champions a “right” to kill children until birth, proclaims that our COVID-19 response should be guided by the need to “protect the sanctity of all human life.” The Church clergy and laity have an opportunity to respond to such brazen inconsistency.

While our Churches are closed, abortion facilities remain open because abortion industry personnel remain committed to provide their “service” despite COVID-19 concerns. Their directive to their “escorts” to stay away indicates that they are fully aware of the risk of COVID-19 exposure from their “patients.” Catholics have an opportunity to match or exceed this commitment by publicly praying, while socially distancing, at our area’s seven abortion chambers. Our area’s April 10, 2020 Good Friday Prayer Vigils offer an opportunity to launch this renewal.

Some other pro-abortion public officials, such as U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Gov. Tom Wolf, are attempting to use COVID-19 public policy responses to expand abortion. Meanwhile, most pro-life Governors,  who have ordered a halt to non-elective surgical procedures, are still allowing abortion facilities to commit surgical abortions.

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, through our actions and urging our legislators to act, we can resist Gov. Wolf’s attempts to abuse expanded Telemedicine services that could effectively eliminate Pa.’s informed consent and waiting period requirements for chemical abortions. Finally, our actions can include a massive turnout for the Pa. March For Life in Harrisburg, when it is re-scheduled.

Finally, let us pray for healing for individuals, our nation, and the Church –  and not just a “return to normalcy.” America’s normalcy had become a vast Culture of Death. The COVID-19 crisis has already closed many abortion chambers, reduced the number of abortions being committed, and caused people to re-evaluate their priorities. The COVID-19 crisis provides the Church with an excellent opportunity to promote a Culture of Life.

In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, pro abortion advocates are trying to expand abortion access via TeleMedicine.  They want doctors to be able to prescribe the abortion pill RU-486 without ever meeting the woman in person.

This is dangerous for the women involved and will greatly expand the number of abortions performed in Pennsylvania.  We need your help NOW to stop this threat.

Additionally, our Governor refuses to close the doors of existing abortion facilities even as all non-essential businesses and health care facilities are closing to decrease exposure to COVID-19 and conserve critical medical equipment.

Can you give us 20 minutes of your time this week to tell Legislators and Governor Wolf that new TeleMedicine legislation CANNOT allow telemed access abortions in Pennsylvania, and that abortion facilities should be ordered to CLOSE during this pandemic?

 We are asking supporters to commit to time slots on Monday and Tuesday to call and email members of the Pennsylvania State Senate and Governor Wolf.

It is critical that our government hears directly from pro life Pennsylvanians.  Indeed, we often hear from our friends in the Legislature that pro abortion advocates yell longer and louder on issues regarding abortion access

We cannot allow the chaos of this pandemic to increase the number of surgical and medicated abortions performed in our state.

WHAT DO I DO AND WHAT DO I SAY:

**Please know that almost all phone calls will go to voice mail because Legislators are working with minimal staff at this time.  LEAVE A MESSAGE!  Voice mails are checked daily.  Be brief in your voicemail.   There is a small chance you will speak with an office staff person.  Please relay this message directly to them.

  1. At your allotted time, call your State Senator’s office. You can find your Senator’s name and contact information via this web tool.

https://pennsylvaniafamilycouncil.salsalabs.org/dontpullapelosi/index.html

SUGGESTED PHONE COMMENT: “Senator _____, as your constituent I urge you to support Senate Bill 857 as amended and I ask you to do all you can to make sure that this telemedicine bill is not used to expand abortion access in Pennsylvania.

I’m also asking you to pressure Governor Wolf to close all abortion facilities in our state during this pandemic because abortion is always non-essential and open doors at abortion facilities means needlessly exposing thousands of workers and women (and their families) to the virus.”

  1. Send your State Senator a follow up email with similar text (email addresses also available on the above contact page)

SUGGESTED EMAIL TEXT: “Senator _____, I just left a message with your office but because this issue is so critical I wanted you to hear from me directly via email.  As your constituent I urge you to support Senate Bill 857 as amended and I ask you to do all you can to make sure that this telemedicine bill is not used to expand abortion access in Pennsylvania.  Please ask Senate Leader Corman to keep the House language in Senate Bill 857.

I’m also asking you to pressure Governor Wolf to be consistent in his leadership by closing all abortion facilities in our state during this pandemic because abortion is always an elective and non-essential procedure.  It is crucial that all available medical equipment be conserved for use by hospitals treating seriously ill and COVID-19 patients.  Also, open doors at abortion facilities means needlessly exposing thousands of workers and women (and their families) to the virus.”

  1. Call Governor Wolf and demand that he acts consistently in his leadership by closing all abortion facilities in the state.

Phone: 717-787-2500

SUGGESTED PHONE COMMENT: “Governor Wolf, I am grateful for your leadership as we navigate the COVID-19 crisis.  Please be consistent in your efforts to conserve essential medical equipment and protect our citizens from unnecessary exposure to the virus by closing all abortion facilities in our state.”

Exploiting a Crisis: Unethical Experiments Undermine Real Help for Coronavirus Patients

The following was sent to me from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.  It’s a little long, but worth the read. 

Research NJRTL

Below is a very informative article which appeared in today’s Town Hall on-line publication by Dr. David Prentice, who is Vice President and Research Director for the Charlotte Lozier Institute and Tara Sander Lee, Ph.D., a Senior Fellow and Director of Life Sciences for the Charlotte Lozier Institute.

The article describes how some scientists and liberal media sources are again making false claims about the use of aborted fetal tissue in experiments and vaccines to combat COVID-19.  This article provides some very helpful and useful information to counter those claims.

Please stay well and be safe.  Please know that our prayers are with you and your loved ones.

Exploiting a Crisis: Unethical Experiments Undermine Real Help for Coronavirus Patients
by David A. Prentice
Editor’s Note: This piece was coauthored by Tara Sander Lee.
|

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.
Someone once said, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste,” and scientists longing to push aside key ethical boundaries took it to heart. A recent Washington Post article claims possible treatments for coronavirus will not be discovered without using body parts harvested from abortions, and that ethical considerations are blocking potential drugs that could “save hundreds of thousands of lives.”

This is not the first time the doomsayers have been exposed for making false and contemptible statements to justify their questionable experiments. But like so many before it, the latest claim is specious. The coronavirus pandemic provides a convenient opportunity to play on people’s fears.  It’s dishonest and wrong.
Experimentation involving aborted babies’ body parts is controversial for a reason: it is unethical, antiquated science – and it’s totally unnecessary. There is no need whatsoever for its use in development of protections or treatments for the coronavirus or any other disease. Instead of squandering precious taxpayer dollars, we should be optimizing the wide array of modernsuccessful alternatives we already have.

A host of ethical alternatives are available now, and many more are in development thanks to NIH directing additional funding to new areas of research.  For coronavirus in particular, there are over 60 potential treatments under investigation.  Making the conscientious decision not to exploit aborted children’s bodies won’t stop us from fighting coronavirus. Indeed, there is no lack of swift progress with ethical alternatives, including some that have already started clinical trials.
One potential treatment for coronavirus involves the use of a humanized mouse (that is, a mouse with a humanized immune system), but it does not use any aborted baby parts.  This modern version, the VelocImmune mouse, is genetically engineered to produce human antibodies for therapeutic use including arthritis and potential treatment for coronavirus infection.

Repurposing an already-approved drug also shows promise in treating coronavirus.  A drug widely used for malaria is moving particularly fast through the research, development, and clinical trial process, when used alone or in combination with other drugs.

Adult stem cells – which are derived from ethical sources present in the body, not from destroyed embryos – are also delivering results. One type of human adult stem cell has been shown to generate new lung tissue and heal damaged lungs.  In fact, the researchers noted that this adult stem cell type is essential to repairing lung tissue damaged by severe influenza and other respiratory ailments. Another adult stem cell type has already been deployed in China and is improving health outcomes for patients with coronavirus-associated pneumonia.

With so many other successful alternatives available to researchers, pushing experimentation with aborted baby body parts at a time like this, when many people worldwide already feel vulnerable, is petty and ludicrous. The Trump administration’s new policy toward these experiments rightly puts ethics first in considering taxpayer-funded grants to researchers who want to use body parts from elective abortions. This week, HHS is accepting nominations for an Ethics Board to carefully examine the ethics of these research proposals. Between the coronavirus and the administration’s action, the timing of complaints from scientists who want to keep tax dollars flowing to their grisly projects is as unsurprising as it is inappropriate.

These objectors always fail to mention that their experiments don’t just require the intentional and deliberate destruction of human life to get the body parts they so covet – they incentivize it. Often the baby who’s sacrificed can feel pain. Some might even survive outside the womb. This argument gets to the heart of what is right and what is wrong and what should and should not be allowed in the name of science. The fact is, the use of aborted baby body parts for research is never justified or necessary.

Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat Scheduled for April 3 – 5, 2020 has been Canceled

The following is from Evelyn Walsh, Director of Rachel’s Vineyard in Doylestown, Pennsylvania regarding the cancellation of their April retreat as well as the cancellation of retreats around the world due to the coronavirus. 

Rachaels Vineyard

I’ve reached out to many of you already, but I thought I should contact the rest of the group to tell you that COVID-19 is responsible for cancelling our Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat this April 3rd to the 5th.  As a matter of fact, the National Rachel’s Vineyard office cancelled ALL retreats around the world for the months of March and April.  As much as this breaks my heart to cancel, I can’t help but to think that even through this difficult and uncertain time, God has a plan in all of this for us.

Through the blessing of our connectivity through the internet, we are able to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, pray the rosary with others, and meet and talk with friends and family on so many other web platforms.  After the rosary last night with Meghan Cokeley, Vince and I met with other Archdiocesan Choir members on Zoom to sing Evening Prayers.  How oddly fun that was!  It made my heart smile.  Tonight the Charismatic Prayer group at the Shrine will have another Zoom meeting at 7:00pm.  We are definitely a resourceful bunch!  If anything, we do have so much more time now to pray and get closer to God in a multitude of ways.  (Surely, the old-fashioned way is still the best. 😉

I had hoped to reschedule this spring retreat to another weekend, but unfortunately the Ave Maria Retreat House is booked solid for this year and the next.  We do have our fall retreat booked for the weekend of October 2 – 4, 2020 and God-willing I look forward to your prayers and support then.  Please do pray that those suffering and wounded souls looking forward to this April retreat and all retreats in the future will be comforted by our prayers and intentions for them.

God bless you.  Stay safe and healthy and be at peace.

Please Contact Your Elected Officials: Abortion Facilities are Not Essential Businesses

The following is from Sandy Slater, President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition.  Links are provided in this post for the Pennsylvania governor and legislators. (Those who live in other states can find your elected officials information on the web.)   Leave your message for them along with your name, address (so they know you are in their district) and phone number to let them know how you feel.  It’s time the abortion industry is made to realize that they are not above the law and deserve no special privileges!  

ERA

This is an activity that is requested of you.

Other states are doing this.  PA tends to see what “other” states are doing and whether they succeeded.  In both cases:  Maryland and Mississippi, the governors are ordering the close of abortion clinics.  I intend to contact our governor’s office (we may not be able to get through because I tried it this week) or my representative to request the same.  Please do this activity.  It is worth a try and ask for a response.

Those of you who attend the BCPLC meetings received a list of the legislators at the meeting or you can use the links provided below.

Other governors have issued similar orders limiting non-essential medical procedures.  Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and Ohio included abortion facilities in their bans on non-essential surgeries and procedures.

Life Affirming Health Care Continues in the Face of COVID – 19

Below is a message from the Gianna Center of Philadelphia regarding changes to their schedule during this crisis.  A phone number is provided in this post for urgent messages. 

corona virus

Changes to Protect Women During the Corona Outbreak 

The Gianna Center of Philadelphia located at the Suburban Community Hospital in East Norriton is making changes in how it operates during this unprecedented time.

Until further notice, the center will not be available for walk-in visits. Instead, all visits are scheduled after screening by the triage nurse. The Gianna Center is asking all patients to call the office if they think they need a sick visit, are experiencing a pregnancy complication or are newly pregnant and have no ob/GYN available.  The phone number for urgent messages is 844-204-0005.

The staff has been busy contacting patients to reschedule routine visits. At the moment, they are planning to offer routine visits again after 04/06/2020, however, this may change depending on the ongoing situation.

To address the needs of their patients, the Gianna team is utilizing tele-med services. The aim is to have video calls available throughout the current shut down. Patients who call the office will be sent an invitation to join the secured line for a video conferencing session in order to receive the necessary medical instruction and prescriptions. Creighton Model instruction is also offered through the same secure platform. The Gianna staff continues working with pregnancy centers, assisting in the counseling of abortion-vulnerable women and providing services in the first trimester. All can use the same number: 844-204-0005.

Dr. Anne Nolte, co-founder and executive director of the National Gianna Centers for Women’s Health and Fertility shared an article written by concerned physicians that one can access here.

As she explains “it is the best one that I have read. It clearly explains the situation we are in and the critical steps we should all be taking at this time. Please read it and share it with friends, family, and associates.

The Gianna Center staff and volunteers pray daily for your safety and for an end to this crisis.  St. Gianna Beretta Molla pray for us!

Governor Murphy Issues Executive Order halting all Elective Procedures Except Abortion

 Below is an article by Micaiah Bilger  of LifeNews.com  sent to me by Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life. 

For all pro-life warriors in New Jersey: please contact Governor Murphy and demand (politely) that abortion mills follow the same elective procedure guidelines as everyone else.  It’s time the abortion industry realized that they are not above the law!  Contact information for Governor Murphy is included in the article below. 

 

unborn_baby

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy’s order Monday banning all elective medical procedures in the state includes an “explicit exemption” for aborting unborn babies.
While much of the country is focused on saving lives, abortion activists and their political allies are still intent on killing them – even while medical resources are scarce and people are dying from the coronavirus.

“Governor Murphy’s executive order exempting abortion during this global pandemic defies logic and is highly irresponsible,” said New Jersey Right to Life Executive Director Marie Tasy. “97% of all abortions are elective procedures and are not medically necessary.”

A press release from Murphy’s office states that all elective surgeries and other medical procedures will be temporarily banned beginning Friday to “preserve the capacity of the health care system” to respond to the coronavirus. The governor’s order states that all medical and dental operations should be delayed unless there is undue risk to the patient’s health.

“Our new reality calls for aggressive action to reduce the burden on our health care system and protect our frontline medical responders,” Murphy said. “Given the dramatic shortfall in personal protective equipment we face, it’s imperative that we work with our partners in health care to strategically preserve supplies and equipment for emergency purposes only.”

However, the governor specifically excluded elective abortions from his order. “Explicit exemption for family planning and termination of pregnancies: The order provides that it shall not be interpreted in any way to limit access to family planning services, including termination of pregnancies,” the press release states.
Tasy said the governor should be focused on saving lives, not aiding the abortion industry.

“Vital medical supplies and precious resources which already are in short supply need to be preserved for our hospitals and health care workers to be able to fight against COVID-19,” she said. “We call on Governor Murphy to do the right thing by reversing this action immediately so that valuable resources can instead be utilized for urgent health care needs that will actually help save human lives and mitigate human suffering.”

Murphy is not the only one. Pro-abortion Democrat governors in Massachusetts and Washington state also carved out exceptions allowing elective abortions to continue during the coronavirus crisis.

Other governors have issued similar orders limiting non-essential medical procedures, but abortion facilities continue to do abortions there as well. Abortion businesses are still open in California and Pennsylvania, despite their governors’ bans on non-essential medical care. LifeNews reported about similar situations in Illinois, Maine and Puerto Rico last week.
Despite what these Democrat governors claim, almost all abortions are elective. What’s more, they are not life-saving, they are life-destroying. An unborn baby is killed, and its mother’s life is put at risk.

So far, two states have recognized this in their efforts to combat the coronavirus. Both Texas and Ohio included abortion facilities in their bans on non-essential surgeries and procedures. However, Ohio abortion facilities are refusing to comply.

Just the Facts, Baby!

The following is from the March 21st newsletter of Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia.

baby

The human being is a complex being, made in the image and likeness of God. Here are some fun facts about us before we were born, given by international expert, Dr. Eduard Gratacos:

  • The first heartbeat occurs at week 5 of gestation. But the entire heart is only the size of the head of a pin! During this week, the heart grows from 1 millimeter to 2.
  • All preborn babies have a mustache, which is called a lanugo. It is a kind of very fine hair, like velvet, that covers the whole body from week 15 on. All of us had a mustache!” (Yes, even girls!) It will disappear shortly before birth and then the permanent hair will appear. Elephants, whales, and seals also have lanugo, as do primates. But only the human being loses it before birth: the other species will always keep it.
  • Each unborn baby has its own fingerprints. They begin to form in week 10 and are unique to each one, even in identical twins.
  • Fetuses open and close their eyes. Although they are in the amniotic fluid, it is as if they are swimming in a pool and opening their eyes. This occurs in weeks 12 to 14.
  • Preborn babies yawn! And they do it often, between one and three times an hour. It occurs from week 13 on. The funny thing is that scientists do not know why most mammals yawn.
  • Starting in week 13, fetuses start to stick out their tongues. So, on an ultrasound it may appear that the baby is making fun of the “photographer.”
  • Their heart is a high-speed train. At week 15, it pumps at a rate of 150 beats per minute.

 

Yard Signs can Speak out for you During Covid 19 Crisis

This is a great idea from John Pisciotta of Waco, Texas for those who are sheltering in place during this virus crisis.  Display your signs on your lawns for a pro-life witness to your neighbors! 

Signs Pro-life outreach in Waco is modifying and drawing back slightly–with regrets. The Covid 19 threat is real and deadly. The Planned Parenthood threat to babies is also real and deadly. We cannot abandon the battle for life. At this time of serious health concern, I want to emphasize the importance of you and your family having a stronger yard sign proclamation. I have five types of yard signs available for you, free of charge, at my front doorstep. As we draw back in some ways, we can escalate our pro-life message with yard signs. If you have a yard, there is no excuse for not displaying a yard sign. If you have one, please consider two. Corner lots look nice with 3 or 4. At my doorstep at 4200 Grim Avenue, you will find signs with the following messages: Vote Pro-Life, Pray to End Abortion in English, Pray to End Abortion in Spanish, Choose Life with a photo of a Anglo/Hispanic mom and baby, and Choose Life with an African-American mom and baby.

You will also find some stakes without signs. Take one of these if the stake on one of your signs has broken. If you live outside of Waco and travel through, you are welcome to choose a free sign provide by the generous Pro-Life Waco donors. We must continue to let our neighbors know that they have neighbors who deeply care about the shedding of innocent blood.
