As the nation will witness history to be made early next week, Students for Life have made stops in ten different cities urging senators to vote yes to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat.
Fifteen students from across the nation, led by PA coordinator Liana Hollendonner, held a peaceful rally outside of Senator Bob Casey’s Center City office, urging for his vote on the right side of history.
Unfortunately, it is likely that Casey will not carry out his father legacy as he has done since being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006.
Following the mini rally, the students chalk up messages in support of Amy Coney-Barrett. However, they were met with some threats by a security guard. After conferring with Cicil Affairs, the students were permitted to chalk on the public sidewalk.
The Vice President debate is a one and done shot. It can even make or break one’s race. We have seen it on Wednesday evening between radical Kamala Harris of California, the running mate of Former Vice President Joe Biden and current Vice President Mike Pence.
Five takeaways form the debate
Unlike President Trump’s behavior last week, VP Pence stayed cool and calm. He even overcame interruptions from Kamala and Susan Page, the moderator. She even threw a fit like a typical nasty woman that wears a pink hat and lectures about “my body, my choice”.
VP Pence exposed Harris and the lies of the Biden campaign one by one. He even reminded everyone of how she openly attacked the Knights of Columbus when she, along with many of her colleagues in the senate, attacked a federal judge over his membership.
“You’re entitled to your opinions, but you are not entitled to your own facts.” The Biden Campaign and even Senator Harris herself have been manipulated by lies. In reality, they have stirred the pot of hatred, division, and even racism.
“I am pro-life and will not apologize for it”. VP Pence made this bold statement when it came to the issue of abortion. Harris continued to echo the faulty narrative of women’s health.
Joe Biden is not a practicing Catholic. The Catholic Church, since the first century, has consistently defended the sanctity of human life. Particularly the issue of abortion. It was reinforced many times in the Catholic Catechism and even multiple papal encyclicals. He has flipped flopped on the Hyde Amendment, consistently advocated for abortion even up to birth, coerced religious groups to take part in the costly HHS mandate that he was its biggest cheerleader.
A Catholic with a clear conscience cannot support someone who is a Catholic In Name Only. One’s faith does not tell you to take part in the murder of innocent lives. Rather, it tells you to be the ones on the right that will be acknowledged by their creator for fulfilling the Works of Mercy.

“The Democratic Party unequivocally supports abortion on-demand, up until the moment of birth, and even infanticide — leaving babies to die after failed abortions.”
Steve Ertelt of Life News wrote an article that should be of great interest to those who are voting on November 3rd. If you believe in the sanctity of life, your vote for our pro-life president is the only choice. Terry Noble, Voices for Life
President Donald Trump released a letter to pro-life Americans today promising to continue fighting against abortion during his second term in office, saying he would “fight in the trenches for unborn children and their mothers.”
As Joe Biden caves to the radical pro-abortion left and works to implement nationwide, taxpayer-funded abortion until birth, President Trump has stood strong in his pro-life commitments and his letter reminds pro-life Americans what he’s done during the last four years to fight for life.
President Trump is the most pro-life president in American history, according to many pro-life organizations that have endorsed his re-election and with four more years in the White House he says he will continue to transform the federal judiciary by appointing judges who recognize the sanctity of life and finally defeat the Democrat-backed abortion industry.
“As I seek re-election this November, I need your help in contrasting my bold pro-life leadership with Joe Biden’s abortion extremism. The Democratic Party unequivocally supports abortion on-demand, up until the moment of birth, and even infanticide — leaving babies to die after failed abortions. Joe Biden’s embrace of this extreme position is most evidenced by his support for taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand. Forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions is an abhorrent position that must be defeated at the ballot box. Joe Biden has doubled down on these positions with his selection of abortion extremist Kamala Harris as his running mate. With your help, I will win re-election, ensuring we have another four years to fight in the trenches for unborn children and their mothers.”
The Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia is launching an exciting outreach in the effort to gear up for a post-Roe America. The following exerpt is from Joe Garecht.
In many ways, the end of legalized abortion in our country is closer than ever before. It is critical that we engage on every front of this battle with thoughtful, coordinated and effective advocacy for the unborn.
Would you consider joining our newly formed Pro-Life Action Team? Led by Joe Garecht and the PLU Public Affairs committee, the goal of this group is to concentrate citizen advocacy for the pro life cause in the spheres of politics and the media.
Commitment will be a specific action item once every other month – typically contacting a legislator via phone or email, or sending a comment/op ed to local media outlets – and occasional meetings, no more than twice per year.
Our voices are powerful! We have heard from state legislators that they felt compelled to act on bills in front of their committee after receiving as few as 12 emails or phone calls from constituents. When we organize and combine our advocacy efforts we improve the chance for lasting change in our community on behalf of the unborn.
Please send your name, email and phone number to Tom Stevens with the subject Pro-Life Action Team to email@example.com and let us know we can add you to the Pro-Life Action Team!
In addition, Students for Life of America have an opportunity to give you the knowledge and tools to engage in public policy.
While COVID-19 is affecting the pro-life movement’s ability to train grassroots activists of all ages, Students for Life is now able to bring our pro-life trainings from campuses right into your home. Enroll in pro-life “majors” in each pillar of pro-life activism.
Not a student? No problem! Continuing your education is important to us and there is no age limit on being an effective pro-life advocate.

The following is from an email blast sent by Deborah regarding an encounter a sidewalk servant witnessed outside of Planned Parenthood
One of the Sidewalk Servants, Bob, shared a story about a young lady they encountered last Thursday at 12th & Locust, and we wanted to share it with you. Please take a few moments to read it; this woman’s comment “I wish you had been here when I came before” is just heart wrenching… It is an encouragement for all of us to give a little of our time to be there for each woman and baby; they need us… Our presence can make all the difference! Please give a couple of hours of your time this week, and ask family and friends to join you or to sign up for a time also. God bless you! His story: At 12th and Locust this AM, Rose approached and I offered her a brochure, pointed to the Community Women’s Center of Philadelphia (Women’s Center) next doorand suggested she could get care that did notinclude abortion there. She was a beautiful and very mature young lady. She smiled knowingly and said she thought she was pregnant, that she had taken the first part of the chemical abortion but thought it had failed. She spoke of immediate regret upon doing so and said she was happy to be pregnant. I expressed my hope and joy at that possibility, and encouraged her to go next door. We also gave her the Natural Womens’ Health material from Dr. Monique. But she proceeded anyway to go into Planned Parenthood. I cautioned her to be careful that she not listen to untruths in Planned Parenthood. I then called the Women’s Centernumber to prepare them in the event she came out. When I was returning to the sidewalk in front of the Planned Parenthood, I saw Rose speaking with Bob G, another Sidewalk Servant who was there with me. Bob was very encouraging and loving as he learned from her that, despite testing positive for pregnancy at home, she had tested negative in PP. I also tried to be comforting, asking her to google Rachel’s Vineyard which she proceeded to do. We also encouraged her to visit the Women’s Center, to consult on her situation and perhaps be re-tested. She did, but before leaving us she looked at us with big, beautiful brown eyes and said “I wish you had been here when I came before”. My heart aches. Please encourage folks to continue to come out to pray and be there for these women. I found her story so encouraging. The women need us there! Let’s be there for them. Thanks to Pat and others for all they have done to be present during the first and hopefully only COVID storm in Phila. Please pray for Rose. Bob ——————————————————HOURS HELP NEEDED:
As the conventions for both parties draw to a close, we will do a recap to pit speakers from both events against each other. For this first edition, we will analyze Sister Diedre and Sister Simone.
Sister Deirdre Byrne
Sister Deirdre Byrne is a member of the Little Sisters of the Sacred Heart. She has over 20+ years with the Army Medical Corps and has worked at a missionary. In the late 90s, she pursued a vocation and found the Little Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary and became a member of the order in 2002. It helped her continue her medical profession while answering God’s call to serve him. During the third night of the RNC, she correlated her medical background with the issue of life saying:
“As a physician, I can say unequivocally life begins at conception. While what I have to say may be difficult for some to hear, I am saying it because I’m not just pro-life, I’m pro-eternal life and I want all of us to end up in heaven someday together.”
To listen to the full; version of her speech, visit here.
Sister Simone Campbell
Sister Simone Campbell is best known as the leader of “Nuns on the Bus”. They are a controversial group that promotes abortion. During the Democratic National Convention, Sister Simone delivered an address in which she celebrated the Democrat’s abortion platform.
Divided Catholic Church in America
What we have saw between the two is a good Catholic from a bad one. Sister Deirdre has said that the unborn is the most vulnerable in our society and they must be protected.
Meanwhile, Sister Simone has cheered the Democrats for allowing abortion on demand. Why would she do this?
This shows that with more than half of Catholics still buying the lies from the party of slavery, sodomy, terrorism, abortion, and even now socialism that good and faithful Catholics must rise up and take up the gauntlet to defeat this modern church that is a 180 degree opposite of what was established in 33 AD.
Our Catholic faith is at stake. We cannot support someone who is Catholic in Name Only while he has a shaky history of promoting abortion.
