Pro-Life Community Mourns Sue Thayer

Today, the pro-life community received the devastating news that Sue Thayer, a former Planned Parenthood employee in Iowa, lost her battle to cancer.

In a social media post, Shawn Carney summarized it well:

“The only former Planned Parenthood manager to lead a 40 Days for Life outside her former workplace which led to its closing.”

Two years ago, the Philly Pro-Life community had the blessing and honor of hosting her visit to the Greater Philadelphia area.

Learn about her testimony

Here’s a blog post about her visit to 40 Days campaigns in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Eternal rest, grant unto your sister Sue Thayer, O Lord. and let the perpetual light shine upon her.

May she rest in peace

Full Sidewalks in Center City

It was the Saturday before Christmas and the sidewalks of both abortion facilities saw a sidewalk full of peaceful, loving prayer warriors covering both denominations

Philadelphia Women’s Center

Regular vigil participants were graced with the [presence of 75 high school and college students from Philly Mission Youth who started their morning outside of the biggest murder center in Philadelphia that is not affiliate with Planned Parenthood.

They prayed the rosary, offered free help for women during their hour of great need, and sung some Christmas carols.

Meanwhile, the Helpers’ of God’s Precious Infants were able to be present outside of Planned Parenthood in Center City. They offered their vigil in memory of Sandy Slater and Kevin Andre, two pro-life activists who died this month.

The Helpers were graced by Sidewalk Servants and Abolish Abortion groups alike. They were met with some jeers and even escorts mocking pro-lifers, yet they kept the faith.

One sidewalk advocate from Abolish Abortion offered help to a couple that went inside the facility while another held a conversation with people who were curious at their presence.

Sadly, lives were scheduled to die at both places. We can only hope that the presence of these peaceful, loving people stir the conscience of patients, volunteers, and workers of both places that life in the womb has value and is worthy of protecting.

IMG_2060

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition invites everyone to join us for our monthly First Friday Life Chain on Friday, October 1 , 2021 from 9:30 – 10:30 am at the Warminster Planned Parenthood at 610 Louis Drive.

We are also asking for those who attend to consider bringing some items for Bucks County Family Service Center located in Levittown.  Here is a list of some of the items they need:  diapers (any size), wipes, baby wash, wash cloths, crib sheets, baby ointment, clothing for infants. 

This center practices Christmas 365 days a year by assisting their neighbors struggling to meet the needs of their families.   This center offers prenatal and parenting support, preparing for baby workshops, breastfeeding support and a diaper pantry. We can help them by donating the above items.

We hope many will join with us to pray for an end to abortion at this facility as well as other facilities in Southeast Pennsylvania and across the country.  Signs will be provided for this event.

Please read the Code of Conduct for our Life Chain below

1 — Be humble but be bold as you stand today against the greatest injustice our nation has ever faced.
2 — In the spirit of Christian love, commit to being peaceful, prayerful, and polite, in word and deed. Any misconduct from passersby should be met with silence, which will convey your inner peace.
3 — Do not respond to motorists. Please stay silent and prayerful and your
response to any situation will be proper. Do not wave or gesture. Do not
frown or smile in response to motorists. Our mission is to pray and stand
against abortion—with the solemnity our mission deserves.
4 — Help others. Watch for mothers (and dads) who need help with children, and assist the elderly with chairs and other needs.
5 — Pick up any trash near you before leaving your area.
6 — Drive carefully, and park legally. Buddy-up, if possible, to minimize
traffic woes. Use crosswalks, and do not hold up traffic. Watch your small
children at all times. During the Chain, stand back from the street and do
not extend your sign over the curb. Give immediate passage to other
pedestrians. Only small children should eat during the LIFE CHAIN.
7 — Thank you for being a strong public witness for Christ and for being an
exemplary citizen in our local area.

Fall Rally

In a previous blogpost, we mentioned that a fall rally will take place in October.

The stage is set for Saturday, October 9th outside of Philadelphia’s Women’s Center at 11 AM. the facility near Chinatown murders 6500 babies, 90% of them are African Americans. Meanwhile, they claim in their front window that Black Lives Matter.

How can you say “Black Lives Matter” when you murder them on a daily basis? If they do matter, you would fight tooth and nail to shut down the abortion facilities that target African Americans at their most vulnerable stage; the womb of their mother.

Join fellow pro-lifers in the Greater Philadelphia to give voice for the voiceless and protect all lives from womb to tomb.

Fall 2021 40 Days for Life Preview: Planned Parenthood

Nearly 4500 lives end on an annual basis in Center City Philadelphia. Thankfully, we have seen moms change their minds and even chose life.

Across the street is a life-saving facility that has seen an uptick in clientele. Some of it has to do with the peaceful presence every day outside of Planned Parenthood.

The campaign, running from September 22nd through October 30th, is looking for brave pro-lifers to cover an hour or two with love, prayer, and mercy. The facility is open Monday through Saturday from 7 AM to 5PM. Abortions are committed from Wednesday through Saturday. Philadelphia Community Women’s Center, under the operation of Legacy of Life, is across the street and will be open every day as well to meet the needs of any mom who changes her mind about abortion.

Sign up for campaign hours here. Bring a friend, group, or even someone who needs to do more in the pro-life movement.

If interested in the campaign at 777 Appletree, visit here.

Fall 40 Days for Life Campaign Preview: Philadelphia Women’s Center

6500 lives are murdered every year at the largest non-Planned Parenthood affiliate in Pennsylvania. Abortion. No matter what exists well at Philadelphia Women’s Center, located a few mere blocks from Independence Hall. During recent years, pro-lifers overcame assaults from escorts that were told not to return again, stolen property, bring videotaped by a professor of engineering who covered up sexual assault at Swarthmore University, vandalize signs, and a potty mouth security guard who has a demon inside of her.

Despite everything thrown against the faithful pro-lifers that are out there from Tuesday to Saturday, there have been saves and possibly some that went unreported by the grace of God.

The facility is open from Tuesday to Saturday 7AM to 4PM. Your presence, even for just one hour, is needed. We are yet to witness one of the dedicated workers at this murder center walk away from this place. Please sign up for hours here.

Prayer for Our Nation

God Our Father, giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care.
You are the rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people.
Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of
human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Remind Your people that true happiness is
rooted in seeking and doing Your will.
Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the
culture of death. Lead us into a new millennium of life. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
Amen.
