Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Holds Successful Walking with Moms in Need Event at Peace Valley Park

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day last Saturday as the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition held  a Walking with Moms in Need event at Peace Valley Park in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  Families, mothers and fathers pushing baby carriages, and even one man in a wheelchair joined us for this event.

Walking with Moms in Need is a national initiative backed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).  It is a one-year endeavor – an opportunity to express helping others in some way.

When our walk was complete, we enjoyed box lunches which were provided by MEI Catering located in Feasterville, Pennsylvania while social distancing under the pavilion.

Primary sponsors of this walk were Holy Spirit Radio, A Baby’s BreathA. Mastrocco Jr. Moving & Storage, Lincoln Investment, Long & Foster Chris Doherty & Marion Louie Team, Regina Mundi Council 4052 Bernie Kranicka.  We ask that you patronize these businesses.

Other supporters included St. Lawrence Church in Riegelsville, Nancy Gagnon, Anita Flynn, Pat Dowling, Greg Hoyt, Connie Schandein, Steve Jackson, Bob Noble, Pat Hess, Honoria Smith, and Sandy Slater.

While this is a one-year endeavor by the USCCB, the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition plans to make this an annual event.

If you were not able to attend this walk and would like to help, you can make an on-line donation using this link.  Proceeds from this walk go to pregnancy help centers in SE Pennsylvania to assist them in keeping their doors open.

Below are some pictures of last week’s walk.  Enjoy!

Pennsylvania: What Have You Done?

After days of waiting, checking our screens, launching conspiracy theories that flooded our newsfeed, having our posts fact checked by Czar Zuckenberg, and even videos being censored by big tech, Joe Biden is elected the 46th President of the United States. Is it over? No

How can we allow Biden, who has a track record of flip flopping, officiating a same sex wedding, and even being a Catholic in Name Only, become our leader? Biden is not an authentic Catholic. He is Catholic in name only. He will meet his creator and all the babies he murdered through his apathetic attitude.

Regardless of who was going to come out as victor of the presidential race, one thing still remains clear: The fight to save life from womb to tomb must be our main focus. We cannot back down from this important fight in our nation’s history. It has and will always be a long and hard fought battle. The question is are you willing to stand up for the most vulnerable and fight to your last breath.

Doctors Pressured Mom 15 Times to Abort Because Her Baby Has Down Syndrome, She Refused

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month. Below is a story of a couple’s torturous journey to save their unborn daughter from doctors pressuring them to abort her.

Micaiah Bilger of Life News reports on an interview between the BBC and a British mother. 

When Emma Mellor learned that her unborn daughter, Jaimie, might have Down syndrome, she refused to consider an abortion.

But her doctors did not take “no” for an answer. They kept asking and asking. And asking.

In an interview with the BBC, the British mother said she was pressured to abort Jaimie 15 times – including right up to birth — just because she had a disability.

“I was told that until my baby had started traveling down the birth canal, I could still terminate,” she told the news outlet.

Now, Mellor and other families are urging society to protect children, born and unborn, who have Down syndrome and provide better information and support to their families.

About six years ago, Mellor said she was 20-weeks pregnant when an ultrasound scan detected water on Jaimie’s brain.

Even though Jaimie had not been diagnosed with Down syndrome yet, her mother said doctors began pressuring her to have an abortion. Mellor’s doctors even tried to influence her by pointing to her young son, Logan, who, at the time, needed surgery to repair a hole in his heart, the BBC reports.

Mellor said she and her husband knew an abortion would involve injecting poison into their daughter’s heart to kill her, and they could not even think of doing that to her.

About six years ago, Mellor said she was 20-weeks pregnant when an ultrasound scan detected water on Jaimie’s brain.

Even though Jaimie had not been diagnosed with Down syndrome yet, her mother said doctors began pressuring her to have an abortion. Mellor’s doctors even tried to influence her by pointing to her young son, Logan, who, at the time, needed surgery to repair a hole in his heart, the BBC reports.

“From that moment on, they recommended we should terminate and told us to think about the effect on our son and his quality of life,” she said. “In all honesty we were offered 15 terminations, even though we made it really clear that it wasn’t an option for us, but they really seemed to push and really seemed to want us to terminate.”

Students for Life Host Rally at Senator Casey’s Office

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.

“RIGHT TO BIRTH” Mass and Rally

To conclude the Fall 202 40 Days for Life Campaign, the Pro-Life Union invites all to the Right to Birth mass and rally on Saturday, October 31st.

Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Dennis Gill at 8AM.

A procession to Planned Parenthood will immediately follow and Clenard Childress will be the main highlight.

Five Takeaways form the Vice Presidential Debate

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

  1. 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”.
  2. 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.
  3. “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.
  4. “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.
  5. 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.
