#SAYTHEIRNAMES: Ángel, Holly, Phoenix, Harriet and Christopher

News broke last week of the discovery of five babies who were murdered by means of infanticide in our nation’s capital. Tragic.

The suspected abortionist was exposed by Live Action who admitted that he won’t help any baby that survives an abortion.

This is a tragedy. Even lawmakers, Department of Justice, and others refuse to pay attention to the injustice that is happening in Washington. They also refuse to investigate.

Is this Gosnell 2.0?

We must take action today. Students for Life is leading the way and you can participate today. Help them bring justice to the five babies left to die.

40 DAYS FOR LIFE PREVIEW: PHILADELPHIA WOMEN’S CENTER

We continue our 40 Days for Life preview series. The second vigil site is no stranger to every pro-lifer in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Philadelphia Women’s Center, which sits five floors above a daycare, accounts for 6500 murders a year. 90% of the victims are African-American.

In its 11th campaign, pro-lifers have stepped up their game. They overcame jeers from Heather, the security guard, one escort named Shawn resorted to violence last year against an elderly pro-lifer, but it got him into hot water and told to never return. They even overcame scare tactics from Lynne Molter, professor at Swarthmore University, who videotapes pro-lifers being peacefully present. In the end, pro-lifers have persevered from time to time.

The hour of operations are from Tuesdays to Saturday from 7 AM to 4PM. They are closed on Sundays and Mondays.

To sign up for vigil hours, visit here.

The campaign will run from Ash Wednesday (March 2nd) through Saturday April 9th. Bring a friend or two with you.

40 DAYS FOR LIFE PREVIEW: PLANNED PARENTHOOD CENTER CITY

You could be one of the faithful warriors standing outside of Planned Parenthood either praying, sidewalk advocating, or just being present.

As pro-lifers gear up for another 40 Days for Life campaign, Voices4Life takes this time to preview what to expect as we prepare for the Lenten Campaign outside of Planned Parenthood in the heart of the City of Brotherly Love, filled with darkness and hatred from those who claim that “#lovewins, #noplaceforhate, and my favorite #blacklivesmatter when a majority of the abortions are perpetrated on black unborn lives. Love will win when we offer compassion, love, and mercy to women in their hour of great need. Pro-lifers in the greater Philadelphia area are encouraged to make a Lenten sacrifice by giving the pro-life movement an hour or more of their time to save lives. The Lenten campaign runs from Wednesday, March 2nd, and ends on April 9th.

The 40 Days for Life Campaign will be present outside of Planned Parenthood in Center City Philadelphia for the 16th time.

During the previous campaigns, there has been much growth, many saves, and even many encounters. The main reason is because of faithful warriors stepping into the breach, whether old, young, retired, young professional, or even a student in the pursuit of knowledge gave an hour or more to help turn the tide of the abortion battle on the streets with prayer, fasting, and alms.

You too can make a difference. You are encouraged to take an hour or so during this Lenten campaign. Bring a friend or two with you.

Visit 40daysforlife.com/philadelphia to pick your hours now.

The hours of operation are Mondays through Saturdays from 8AM to 5PM

PHILLY PRO-LIFERS HONOR JOHN STANTON’S LEGACY; 8 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH

If John Stanton were alive today, he would love to have stepped out in the bitter, winter cold, all bundled up, ready to save babies and prick the conscience of the workers and volunteers alike. He did it through every element. Whether he was alone or with a group, he carried a smile and a humble demeanor to every person that he would encounter.

His presence was felt this morning with 75 people stronger from all walks of life. The rally began with a rosary led by Martin Stanton.

Kim Savage of Generation Life shared about how on September 11th, she was scared about going to work when the world stood still when the events were unfolding in New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. She pointed to the fact that Planned Parenthood was offering abortions to the widows of the fallen first responders. Mr. Stanton told her, “We have work to do”. Indeed, she did go to work.

Pastor Bill Devlin shared how John Stanton prayed for his son Luke who had cancer at 18 months. His fervent prayer cured him, yet he continued to pray for him for the rest of his life.

Marlene Downing took the time to promote Susan B Anthony List. Correlating how she kept fighting this one girl in her neighborhood growing up Marlene shared how we are in a constant spiritual battle. God told her that “I’ll teach you to pray first”.

After the prayer vigil, everyone gathered for Mass that was celebrated by John Stanton’s longtime friend Father Rayford Emmons. Fr. Emmons shared about his many encounters with John Stanton, especially how he met him through an encounter when talking with a woman who had two suicide attempts, which propelled John to launch the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia.

Pat shared about how his father and several faithful prayed outside of Gosnell’s House of Horrors for many years. Additionally, he would fervently pray outside of two abortion facilities in Center City. He recalled the saves they had during his time out there through a letter Pat read after Mass.

Many of us have a story about John Stanton. Soon, each one will be told. He will also remain a powerful intercessor in heaven for all of your needs.

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
