We are over a third into the dog days of summer. By now, we have seen advertisements for back-to-school, last-minute summer getaways, and even some early Christmas deals. Before you know it, the summer is over and it is back to reality for many people. Here are some things you can do this month to advance the culture of life:
Pro-Lifers can peacefully march in the cold and as a test to their character they can even do the same in the scorching heat.
400 pro-lifers across the Greater Philadelphia area were in attendance for the summer rally. The day began with Mass at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral. In his greeting and homily, Father Dennis Gill reminded the faithful gathered to continue to pray for the defense of human life, especially in its most vulnerable stage. He also reminded them that the Blessed Mother is with them and interceding with them as they continue to take a bold stand against the greater destroyer of life in society, abortion.
After mass ended, the faithful peacefully processed down to Planned Parenthood located at 12th and Locust. They were people shaking heads in disgust, high-fiving three lone escorts, and even honks for death.
The speakers took time to address authentic womanhood, the need for pro-lifers to be present, what we are really fighting when present outside of abortion facilities, and to be a peaceful vessel of God’s grace through our presences and prayers.
As someone who co-hosted a popular pro-life radio program in the Philly area in the 80’s, I am encouraged and excited to see that we now have a new and much needed weekly pro-life program in SE Pennsylvania. Hosted by Maria Gallagher and Bonnie Finnerty of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, this 1/2-hour program airs every Wednesday night at 6:00 pm on WWDB-AM 860 Talk Radio.
Please pass this information on to everyone you know and tune in each week to hear Maria and Bonnie, and their guests tackle current moral issues from a positively pro-life perspective.
The following is from a text message sent by Marlene Downing. Be sure to learn about her debut novel here. Also if you live in the Greater Philadelphia area, check out Sidewalks Servants and cover an hour or two with prayer. Need training? The Sisters of Life has you covered.
It was a traffic jam backed up all the way to Chester. I knew that God was up to something.
When I arrived at Planned Parenthood I saw Manuel on his post serving as he always does. I apologized for not being there sooner. I missed an hour of my shift.
There was a young lady crying in the courtyard. I told her that I would like to talk to her but I can’t come in there. I put my arm around her and walked with her. She was telling me her story and so grateful that we were there.
I called Guiding Star Ministries and they weren’t able to do an interview right away because of an emergency. I then called Pat for openings at Our Ladies House. He said that he would reach out and today the young lady had an interview with them for housing.
She is going to keep her baby.
Be encouraged everyone..No matter what it looks like your presence matters.
Tom MacDonald, a rapper from Canada, uses his music skills to bring to light a problem in our culture.
We have seen of recent young people begging for safe spaces from ideologies that are not in line with their soo called “views”. I wonder how many of them know the issue at hand even before they were brainwashed by communist and corrupted teacher’s unions that are causing more harm than good.
The rapper’s recent music video takes aim at a group that we see on college campuses that would stop at nothing to vandalize and steal off of a display all because it “hurts their feelings”.
One of the lyrics that jumps out from his song reads:
You think taking guns away will save our kids from the killings But your pro-choice abortion kills way more children
This is how you use your God-given talents. So what are we waiting for?
If voters from the Keystone State were at the polls during the primary, they may have noticed the first question on whether the governor should have limited executive power. It was common sense. Now one was above the law.
By a 7-point margin (53%-46%), voters said yes to limiting the governor’s power. This came during the advent of the pandemic that took place last year. He closed churches [which should have been opened to encourage people to pray for the end of COVID-19] and businesses, yet he let abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood continue having abortions.
Despites the state’s efforts to pass bills ending the pandemic, Wolf vetoed every measure. That send the message for the people to decide at the polls and the convincing victory showed.
This shows that accountable is still alive in Pennsylvania as 2022 is around the corner.
Pennsylvania is just the first state to do so. Many others are looking to follow suit.
It’s time for We the People to stand up to tyrants like Commie Tommy Wolf and take our states back. Wolf’s legacy lied in his response to the scamdemic that happened and how he radically promoted abortion in the heat of the lockdowns where pro-lifers were not permitted to be peacefully demonstrating outside of abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood.
It is hard to believe that it is a joyous occasion marked with uncertainty let alone hope for the future.
For the pro-life movement in the Greater Philadelphia area, we are proud of our future young leaders who have done so much despite a hectic college schedule to advance the culture of life.
Case in point, the students at Temple University. These young people have done everything from praying outside of abortion facility, tabled next to Planned Parenthood during a college fair to stir some debate, and even helping out at HOPE Pregnancy Center.
We are proud of these young men and women and wish them all of the best in their future endeavors.
