We’ll all be glad to see 2020 go. We have seen riots in the streets of large cities, and forced quarantines of healthy people, plus harsh restrictions on our freedoms due to COVID-19.
Because of the COVID restrictions, our usual 40 Days for Life Fall Campaign is being curtailed and we are asking people to join us not only at our local Planned Parenthood for public witness and prayer, but also in private prayer. Prayer is the most powerful weapon we possess to fight against the evils of our world.
Our Prayer Campaign starts on Wednesday, September 23rd and runs until Sunday, November 1st. We will post a prayer and meditation every day during this time to remind everyone to pray for an end to abortion.
If you live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, please join us for our 40 Days of Prayer and Repentance outside of the Planned Parenthood in Warminster. Contact your church’s Respect Life Committee Chairperson and find out which day your church is scheduled for public prayer. If you don’t have a committee or a 40 Days for Life coordinator, we will be glad to help you. (see flyer at end of this post for more information.)
What will 2021 bring? Only God knows for sure. But I’m certain that if enough people turn to Him in prayer and repentance, He will heal our land, our hearts and our souls, and end the sin of abortion in our country.
Please see the flyer below for more information. We ask that you print out and distributeto all your contacts in Bucks County.
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14
The following is from Michael McMonagle, President of the Pro-Life Coalition of Pa. This event will be held on Thursday, July 23rd at White Manor Country Club at 831 Providence Road in Malvern from 7:00-9:00 PM, which is a few minutes drive from the Malvern Retreat House. Please see flyer at end of this post for more information.
The purposes of this Event are to launch activities that
– call the Church, in response to the COVID Pandemic, to repentance for our apathy regarding the massive shedding of innocent blood of children in the womb by abortion; and
– call the Church laity and clergy to make the legal protection of these children the preeminent issue when they vote in and preach on the November 3, 2020 General Election.
Randall Terry will make a presentation on these themes following an abbreviated showing of his movie, Pandemic. Randy and some of his team will also provide praise and worship music.
Once again we see that Planned Parenthood believes they are above the law by applying for and taking coronavirus relief funds for which they were not entitled. Please see press release below from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.
Planned Parenthood is once again trying to steal more money from taxpayers. At least 37 Planned Parenthood affiliates, including two from New Jersey, who were ineligible for funds from the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program, applied for and received a total of $80 million from the coronavirus relief fund.
Among them are two Planned Parenthood affiliates from New Jersey. Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which is their parent company, has more than 600 employees. They took the money even though the loans prohibited organizations with more than 500 employees to apply for the funds.
According to reports released by the Small Business Association (SBA) this past week, Planned Parenthood of Northern and Central New Jersey in Morristown received $2-5 Million and Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan New Jersey based in Newark, which received $1-2 Million.
SBA sent Planned Parenthood a letter stating that their 49 affiliates were ineligible for the loans. A group of 27 Republican U.S. Senators subsequently sent a letter asking U.S. Attorney General Barr to investigate the matter. As proof that Planned Parenthood knew they were ineligible for funds, the Senators cited a statement by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund that the Small Business Administration could exclude them from the funding. The penalty for fraudulent loan applications carries civil and criminal penalties.
This is not the first time Planned Parenthood affiliates in NJ have applied for and received taxpayer funds illegally.
Several years ago, the abortion group was found engaging in fraudulent Medicaid activity in New Jersey. The U.S. Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services uncovered a consistent problem with New Jersey-based family planning clinics run by the Planned Parenthood abortion business. A government audit found that they were improperly billing Medicaid for services that did not qualify as family planning.
An initial audit revealed New Jersey improperly received federal reimbursement at the enhanced 90 percent rate for 160,955 prescription drug claims that were billed as family planning but did not qualify as family planning services. A letter from the Inspector General to New Jersey officials recommended that New Jersey repay $2,219,746 to the federal government.
On Tuesday, June 30, NJ Governor Phil Murphy signed a Supplemental Appropriation Bill (A3/S20) which allocated $3.814 Million in taxpayer funds for Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood sent a letter to legislators demanding that they vote in favor of the bill and warned them that they intend to score the vote. The bill passed both houses of the Legislature the day before, along mostly partisan lines. Governor Murphy and the Democrat-controlled Legislature previously allocated $20 Million this year to the abortion lobbying group and Governor Murphy’s FY 2021 proposed budget allocated another $20 million to the abortion business.
“Our state is facing a $2 Billion deficit, businesses have had to shutter their doors, over 1 million NJ citizens are currently unemployed, and so many worthwhile programs are not being funded, yet the shameful money grab by this legislature and Governor Murphy to use our tax dollars to subsidize and boost Planned Parenthood’s abortion business continues unabated,” said NJRTL Executive Director Marie Tasy.
Planned Parenthood is a private, non-profit, political, partisan organization that financially supports the Governor and many members of his current party at election time.
Commenting on this latest scheme to syphon more money from taxpayers, NJRTL Executive Director Marie Tasy, said, “Planned Parenthood should be immediately charged with civil and criminal penalties and ordered to pay the money back immediately. It is not surprising that Planned Parenthood would use a global pandemic to try to steal more money from taxpayers. They have proven to be ruthless pro-abortion political advocates that will go to any length to protect their bottom line.”
The following was taken from an email from John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco. Need a yard sign or want to replace an old one? Contact John and he will have one delivered to you free of charge. Although these signs are for the Waco area, it would be a good project for other pro-life organizations in other areas of the country as well.
This new initiative will be a game changer in the Central Texas Covid-19 environment. You may not like the heat. However, our free and attractive pro-life yard signs thrive at 100 degrees or more. Through July, Pro-Life Waco offers a FREE yard sign to households and churches in the Waco area–including counties bordering on McLennan County.
WE WILL DELIVER your free yard sign with an unbreakable metal holder. You can choose from one of five designs that you see below. Your sign will be delivered to your home.
The new style holder stake will not break like the ones we have used for years. To join your neighbors or lead your neighbors in SUMMER SIGNS FOR LIFE, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call or text John Pisciotta at (254)-644-0407. You can do this. You should do this. Let’s triple the number of Central Texas homes affirming love and life for babies and moms.
Also, let me know if you want to have an old, battered yard sign replaced. Our delivery team is capable and probably not as fast as Amazon.
The following is from Judie Brown of American Life League.
Shepherds lead from the front; goatherds lead from behind.
There has been a lot of commentary about Bishop Robert Barron’s insistence that the laity — and not the bishops — should be providing clarity during times of crisis.
So let me give you a vivid example of the rank cowardice we have among the Catholic bishops today.
What follows is a statement made in May 2020 from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops which — if they actually published something like this — would give pro-life Catholics across America a great deal of courage:
“Our hearts are wounded for the many souls mourned as African American communities across the nation are being disproportionately infected with and dying from the impact of Planned Parenthood. We raise our voices to urge state and national leaders to examine the generational and systemic structural conditions that make Planned Parenthood especially deadly to African American communities.
“We stand in support of all communities struggling under the weight Planned Parenthood has had not only on their physical health, but on their livelihoods, especially front line medical and sanitation workers, public safety officers, and those in the service industry. We are praying fervently for an end to abortion, and for physical health for all, and emotional healing amongst all who have lost loved ones.”
If the Catholic bishops can be so adamantly clear during a pandemic that has killed 121,000 Americans, why can’t they be just as strong (if not STRONGER) in the face of the 2,363 abortions committed every day in America?!
Now it has been 103 days since the COVID-19 lockdowns began. COVID-19 has claimed the lives of 121,000 Americans. In 103 days, the abortion industry has murdered 271,508 babies.
This, Bishop Barron, is the problem. We don’t need cowards. We don’t need more politicians. We need BISHOPS unafraid to live and defend the GOSPEL.
How much longer will the Catholic bishops be silent in the face of the greatest sin this nation has ever committed in the eyes of God?
If Barron is asking the laity to lead, then the laity is begging our Catholic bishops to ENFORCE CANON 915.
The following was taken from the newsletter of the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia. If you live in the Southeast Pennsylvania area, please consider being a prayer warrior in front of one of these abortion facilities in center city or pray and give witness at one closer to your home.
Greater Philadelphia has moved into the yellow phase of reopening Pennsylvania. It is time to get back out and serve. Public Transit challenges? Yes, Covid-19 is still around, but we can stop the risk of spread with properly use of gloves, masks, disinfectant and space. Women especially are needed back in front of the abortion centers to pray and reach out. Please contact Tom Stevens at 215-885-8150 ext. 503 or email us at email@example.com to learn more and volunteer or complete the form at prolifeunion.org/volunteer .
Please join us this week as we pray in particular for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf. The information below was provided by Sandy Slater, President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition.
‘Winning the war against unborn babies and their mothers one soul at a time’
There’s no hiding Governor Tom Wolf’s truly extreme pro-abortion agenda. He has vetoed several good pro-life pieces of legislation. He allowed Planned Parenthood to be open during the COVID-19 shutdown despite prohibiting all elective surgeries – calling the largest abortion business in the state “life-sustaining.”
Now, Governor Wolf wants to send $3 million of our tax dollars directly to Planned Parenthood. Pennsylvania’s pro-life community must work together to stop Governor Wolf’s extreme abortion agenda.
In November 2019, Gov. Wolf vetoed the Downs Syndrome bill after it passed both houses, calling the legislation a “restriction on women and medical professionals and interferes with women’s health care and the crucial decision-making between patients and their physicians.”
Recently, The Pennsylvania state legislature passed the Telemedicine bill after adding an amendment that indirectly regulated abortion-inducing drugs. Gov. Wolf, the most pro-abortion governor in Pennsylvania history claimed that the bill “interferes with women’s health care and the crucial decision-making between patients and their physicians.”
Let us pray. In 2 Timothy 3: 16 the Apostle Paul tells us that All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, and in Isaiah 55: 7, it says, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon”.
Below is information from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life on the upcoming primary which was rescheduled for July 7th.
The Primary Election was moved to Tuesday, July 7, 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. The Election will change primarily to a Vote-by-Mail Ballot system. Every registered republican and registered democrat in the state will receive a mail-in ballot, while unaffiliated voters will receive a mail-in ballot application. If you are an unaffiliated voter, your mail-in ballot application must be received by your county clerk by June 30, 2020.
Postage for both ballots and applications will be prepaid, and at least one polling place in each municipality will remain open, provided there are enough poll workers.

This post is from Bradley Mattes of Life Issues Institute. Find out how what you can do to combat the discrimination to our elderly and the unborn by reading his article below.
It can be said that both the best and the worst of humanity has been revealed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Scores of heartwarming do-gooder and heroic stories have saturated social media and beyond.
At the same time, we have witnessed Planned Parenthood’s efforts to scare pregnant women into having abortions, and expand abortion via telemedicine. Or Planned Parenthood’s fleecing of taxpayers by fraudulently syphoning off over eighty-million dollars intended for small businesses to keep them afloat.
But beyond the abortion industry, the culture of death has slithered its way into America’s critical care units focused on COVID patients.
The pandemic has unmasked alarming policies and guidelines designed for situations like COVID—policies that would likely be used to guide healthcare decisions for years to come. So it’s critically important that they be exposed and rectified. Here’s a sampling of what’s been uncovered.
