WHO MURDERS MORE PEOPLE DAILY? NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION OR PLANNED PARENTHOOD?

Another tragedy has happened. Many of us are saddened by the events in Uvalde, TX this week. Twenty-one precious lives were killed by a disturbed transgender individual who has had a history of mental health issues. It is sad like many mass shootings in the last three decades. Like the ones in the past, the pro-abortion show their hypocrisy when they pretend they care about human life. They use this tragedy to pretend who should’ve lived and who should’ve died. Meanwhile, the silent screams of thousands of unborn children have fallen upon their death ears. Hypocrites.

This brings up the question: Who is responsible? Does the National Rifle Association kill people?

The answer is most definitely no. NRA accounts for zero of the casualties in either a mass shooting or the homicide rates in major US cities.

Sadly, Planned Parenthood ends the lives of 2,364 babies a day. It rounds to a total of more than a million. Since the Roe v Wade decision, 63 million lives have been lost. The media has turned a deaf ear and a blind eye to this daily tragedy.

People kill people. Guns don’t kill people.

Let us speak up for life from womb to tomb and be consistent in our concerns over all acts of violence.

Please pray for pregnant women vulnerable to abortion and their precious babies. And please pray for all the cyclists participating on June 11th! 

JOE MANCHIN DOES IT AGAIN

The Senate Bill Women’s Health Protection Act was defeated today. Along with 50 republicans that stopped it from codifying Roe v Wade into federal law, one lone Democrat crossed party aisles to prevent this so-called “healthcare bill” from being passed… Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

The bill would’ve wiped out 500 pro-life bills passed on the state level while expanding abortion to the point of coercing medical staff against their moral conscience and even allowing non-medically licensed people to perform the procedure.

We have another pro-life victory, despite a deadlock in the senate and a razor-thin pro-death majority in the House of Representatives.

Pray. Fast. Hold the line. Hold your elected officials accountable. We’re not done yet.

Bear in mind, that this debate will be decided when we make abortion unthinkable and it begins in our community. Continue changing hearts and minds.

PRO-LIFERS, STAND FIRM. PRAY HARDER!

Like many people, I heard of the leak on the news about the possibility of Roe v Wade not making it to its 50th anniversary. (I think my sister and brother in law have a better shot at that). Even Justice Samuel Alito believes that the issue should be decided by the people, not the high court.

Since the news of the leak, pro-aborts have acted unhinged. There was a protest in Los Angeles that turned violent that law enforcement had to intervene. Even elected Karens, like Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, (I’m surprised she didn’t suffer a stroke after her agonizing rant). Wait a second, Sen. Karen of Massachusetts is angry? *Eye roll*. She is so angry that a snickers bar can’t turn her into a conservative.

Even Catholics for Choice (oxymoron name for a group) are up in arms with the leak that they are planning to protest during Catholic Masses nationwide on Mother’s Day weekend.

WHAT CAN CHRISTIANS DO

Regardless of the imminent outcome and ruling that will be casted by nine judges, pro-lifers must remain vigilant. Yes, Roe v Wade has been a controversial court decision for five decades, and there is light at the end of the tunnel for many pro-lifers to see this issue return to the states as it should have from the beginning.

The first and foremost thing to do is pray. Hold Holy Hours for an end to abortion and for the conversion of those who turned a blind eye and deaf ear to the cry of the most vulnerable of our society. Pray the rosary. Learn about the Flame of Love rosary that has been effective during several prayer vigils here.

Continue attending prayer vigils. This idea speaks for itself. The presence of pro-lifers has a powerful and profound impact on the number of people entering the facility. Your presence matters. 40 Days for Life Campaign may have came and went, but murders are still happening.

Participate in the 2022 elections. Primary season is heating up. Pennsylvania’s primary is Tuesday, May 17th. Be sure to vote with a clear conscience and in person. Visit here for all state primaries.

Speak up! This goes for laity and clergy alike. The only way hearts and minds will change in this ongoing debate to have these hard discussions. Indeed, we have seen the videos of a bunch of grown up kindergartners wanted to silence speech of people they don’t agree with. Bishops, Pastors, and Deacons, preach the message of life from the pulpits. We need more engaging homilies and sermons that pierce the hearts and minds of church-goers every given Sunday.

Laity, share the message of life on social media. Get louder on the platform if big tech tries to silence you. The truth can never be silenced or censored. The Minister of Lies can’t stop the movement that has gained momentum the last fifty years. This is our time! Let’s seize the moment!

Pray, Fast, and Give Alms!

U.S SENATE CONFIRMS BROWN-JACKSON; FULFILLING BIDEN’S RADICAL ABORTION AGENDA

It was no contest when three republicans, one a former presidential candidate ten years ago, will support Biden’s controversial nominee to the high court. They and their Democrat colleagues sealed her fate.

Today, with a 53-47 vote, President Biden’s promise to the abortion lobby has been fulfilled. Even Joe Manchin, Senator of West Virginia, sided with his Democratic colleagues in support of the controversial nominee. Manchin recently put some of Biden’s plans in limbo, until today. Three Republicans, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Mitt Romney of Utah, crossed party lines to support Biden’s nominee.

Sadly, Brown-Jackson’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is a threat to the progress of the pro-life movement over the past five decades.

“She doesn’t hold a position that ‘all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights… Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.’ Judge Jackson says she has no position on whether you have a right to life.” said Senator Ted Cruz.

Even Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina took it a step further, “The historic nature of Judge Jackson’s nomination reinforces the progress our country has made. However, ideology must be the determining factor—not identity.”

Brown-Jackson also took heat during the hearings about how she let sex offenders and pedophiles receive a light sentence.

Repeat after me, ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES

FIVE SAVES IN ONE WEEK

The headline says it all. In two separate email blasts within 48 hours, Monique reported five saves.

On Monday and Tuesday, a save took place, one from each facility. On Friday, a student from UPenn reported of a woman changing her mind about abortion and connected her to Alpha Pregnancy in West Philly.

On Wednesday, a pro-lifer encountered a police officer who shared how he saved his son from abortion 34 years ago.

Then, Dr. Monique Ruberu received two calls about women who took the abortion pill and want to reverse it. She was able to call in the medication needed to begin the process.

We are making strides. Continue to do your part in saving lives with your loving and peaceful presence.

PRO-LIFERS IN GREATER PHILADELPHIA RALLY FOR LIFE AT INDEPENDENCE HALL

Pro-lifers across the Greater Philadelphia area gathered in the City of Brotherly Love for the 2nd annual March for Life in Philly.

With over 300 in attendance. they all gave voice to the most vulnerable in our society through their love and bold witness.

Before Mass, Catholics gathered at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral for a rosary and singing of “America the Beautiful”. In his homily, Fr. Gill told those gathered to “Our efforts begin with God. Be encouraged, not discouraged.” He goes on to say that Catholics are not only armed with prayer but also with the Eucharist.

On the lawn of the cathedral, Catholics joined their Protestants brothers and sisters in Christ in a ecumenical prayer service as many pastors ask for God for his intercession to end the senseless violence committed against everyone from womb to tomb.

The march went from the cathedral to Independence Hall with a stop at Philadelphia Women’s Center. While there, pro-lifers saw the reality of where the murders take place while overcoming the vile hatred and ridicule from the volunteers and workers there who masked their disgust on their faces of the loving and peaceful pro-lifers assembled. All were reminded to treat them with mercy and kindness. Even a woman came out scared and crying as sadly she had her child murder despite the pleas to offer the woman post-abortive help.

The rally helped energize the faithful as they heard from Toni McFadden, Monique Ruberu, Michael Geer, Pete DeMaio, and Kristan Hawkins.

The fitting part of the rally is Kristan Hawkins correlating the Declaration of Independence with the three unalienable rights our founders mention in the historic document. She goes on to tell the faithful in attendance to “be bold. be not afraid. defend life.”

Everyone is ready to make their bold stand against abortion now. They have God on their side and are ready to get the job done, no matter the critical outcomes that will be decided in the next few months.

Pro-lifers, assemble! Do not be afraid to step into the breach and offer your gifts and talents to cultivate the pro-life message.

PA REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES SHARE COMMON GOALS DURING GUBERNATIONAL DEBATE IN LANGHORNE

The PA Family Institute held a gubernatorial debate among Republican candidates. Seven of the candidates were in attendance at Cairn University in Langhorne. They were Lou Barletta, Joe Gale, Charlie Gerow, Melissa Hart, Bill McSwain, Dave White, and Dr. Nche Zama. Jake Corman and Doug Mastriano were invited, but they decline due to being afraid of facing one of the candidates head-on. Their loss. Let alone the fact that they are both sellouts after helping in the passing of Act 77. Pennsylvania needs a proven man or woman of character willing to stand up to woke ideology and the progressive mob while getting the job done.

Voters in Pennsylvania got to hear firsthand what the candidates can do to address many hot-button issues facing our commonwealth and country today. Here is a breakdown of each issue pertaining to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

Abortion

As Rich Zeoli made aware, the Supreme Court may potentially send Roe v Wade back to the states. Every candidate welcomes that idea and hopes it does happen. Here is a breakdown of what each candidate says about abortion.

White: protect men and women. Gift from God especially in 33-year-old son, Brian with special needs. Abortion should not happen at any time. Pass Brian law. Fight at every moment of life. 

Zama: Suicide is No.1 among children in PA thanks to COVID. Decisive. Life begins at conception when sperm and egg meet. You can’t deny biology.

Gerow: More action. Unbelievable opportunity. Fetal heartbeat and Down syndrome would be law. Sanctity of life. Take specific actions

Barletta: voted to defund PP. called out UPItt for harvesting baby parts in its medical school. Veto anti-life bill. 

McSwain: Protect life when the majority wins in all state offices. 

Gale: moral obligation to protect the vulnerable. The issue must be sent back to the state. Murder stops in Harrisburg when elected. Push for a strong life agenda. 

Hart: sponsored Safe Haven Law and Personhood on state and federal. Compassion to protect both mother and child.

In addition to the issue of abortion, many hot-button issues surface. One, in particular, was transgenderism.

Transgender Issue

Trans

Biological males in their own gender sports

Males will not share locker with females

Gale: men play men sports. Women play women sports. Let down by the establishment. 

Zama: Sperm and egg meet no return. Gender is biology. Psychological issue. Speak against transgenderism. Where are the Christians standing up to woke ideology? 

Hart: only candidate to play women’s sports. she will protect women.

Gerow: Human aspect. Women are under assault. Total nonsense from woke culture. Women must be protected.

Barletta: Why should we talk about the trans issue? The world upside down since Roe v Wade. Protect women.

McSwain: It’s about protecting women and girls. 50th anniversary of Title IX. Enforce high ideals. 

White: Protect women.

A notable quote from Dr. Zama: “You are still the same person you were born no matter how much you can your original biological makeup”

Religious Liberty was another issue that was brought to the debate floor. Each candidate slammed Josh Shapiro on attacking the Little Sisters of the Poor even his war with the Catholic Church. Here are some lines from the candidates.

Zama: It must be protected. Focus on greater agenda

Hart: Called out Shapiro for suing Little Sisters of the Poor. Why immigrants came to the United States, a haven for freedom. Foundation

Gerow: Founded by Penn in the commonwealth. Grills Shapiro on attacking religious groups. One Nation Under God to be free. 

Barletta: Protect religious liberty. 

McSwain: Vetoes bills attacking religious groups. Freedom of Religion not freedom from religion

White: Religion is under attack. Will push back once elected.

Gale: Faith-based nation. Do everything to protect this freedom. Religious exemption. Proud Catholic and will protect all faiths. Shapiro is anti-Catholic, will stand up to Shapiro.

Overall, each candidate seem promising and we enjoyed listening to what they can bring to the commonwealth when elected. Pennsylvanians, it is time to look at this race like it depends on everything.

BIDEN CELEBRATES DEATH DURING STATE OF THE UNION

Missed last night’s State of the Union? Not much was missed as the 46th President of the United States slurred his speech, lied about everything hurting families and nation, the list goes on.

What is more troubling is how Biden, a Catholic in Name Only, celebrates death during his address. This came just after his frustration towards Republicans over the death of the radical abortion bill that fell short of the majority votes in the US Senate. Fact check: Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, did join Republicans in stopping the bill dead in its tracks noting that Democrats are more concerned about Biden’s radical agenda instead of helping those in Ukraine.

Biden has sent America backwards across many fronts. He made Jimmy Carter look better. It is no longer Donald Trump’s fault. Even those who pulled for him during his 2020 run are abandoning the sinking ship that is commandeered by fools.

Biden has even added fuel to the fire in the abortion debate as the pro-life movement continues to grow stronger and stronger.

Pray for his conversion and for those who continue to promote a radical agenda that will move America backwards, not forward.

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
