Give the Gift of Life This Christmas

Christmas is fast approaching. There are so many ideas for gifts to give this season. Even though you may have completed all of your shopping, and crossed items off your list, there are other people struggling, wondering what they’ll do this Christmas and what the next year will bring.

Want to give the best gift to individuals struggling this Christmas season? How about the gift of life?

Keep in mind the pregnant woman who appears distressed, worried, or unsure while walking toward the entrance of an abortion clinic. Your kindness, compassionate approach, helpful resources, and prayers could inspire this pregnant woman to give the gift of life to her unborn child. Imagine her having this newfound hope for a better future; what a joyous occasion that would be this Christmas!

Eighty high school students in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will be attending the annual March for Life on Jan. 24, 2020 and the annual conference of Students for Life the following day, thanks to the national organization’s $6,000 grant to the archdiocesan Office for Life and Family.

Students for Life aims to educate teenagers and young adults on “the violence of abortion, create new pro-lifers and transform campuses into places that support pregnant and parenting students,” according to its website.

Now a crowd funding effort by the archdiocesan office seeks to raise an additional $15,000 to send up to 200 more students for the events.

Visit the website GiveSendGo and help raise awareness of the sanctity of human life among young people by making a donation here.

Eat More Chicken? Or Political Correctness

In nearly two decades, Chick Fil A has been rising to be one of the top fast-food chains in the United States. What sets them apart from other chains like McDonald’s and Burger King is their Christian values such as being closed on Sunday.

In 2012, we will never forget how the organization came out against gay marriage. Some thought it would have the franchise drop from grace. However, it only fueled their profits steadily.

Recently, Chick Fil A announced that it is withdrawing funds from the Salvation Army over controversial issues. Many people thought it was a smack in the face to their loyal customers. However, according to Catholic Stand, Salvation Army has been connected to Planned Parenthood. This is a true controversy as we also approach #GivingTuesday in less than two weeks’ time. Learn about pro-life organizations that are worth giving here

So the question is, do we criticize Chick Fil A for chickening out, or do we hold charities, like the Salvation Army, accountable for supporting a notorious and demonic organization? The choice is yours.

And as a former employee of Chick Fil A who offered you a different take on the news, my pleasure.

Travel Info

Please use the Metro to arrive at the rally site. Recommend locations: Federal Triangle, Smithsonian, Metro Center. For metro info: https://www.wmata.com/fares/smartrip/.(Check out our March for Life map — you can print off paper copies OR download the March for Life app.)

Have your metro card easily accessible, before you enter the station. Metro Stations are crowded during rush hour, and even more crowded on the March for Life, during rush hour. Keep in mind that in the Washington Metro system, you need to tap in and tap out of their fare gates. One way to alleviate long lines, and avoid the frustration of fellow metro riders is to have your metro card ready, in your hand, before you enter the line for the fare gate. Also, you do not need to wait for the gates to close after the person in front of you walks through, just ensure you tap your card to the SmarTrip target and proceed through the gate.

Important Notes

  • While walking and riding the metro in D.C., please be respectful of residents and commuters. Let’s show the nation’s capital how passionate and polite and respectful pro-lifers really are!
  • Do not leave trash or signs on the grounds of the National Mall, Supreme Court, or Capitol.
  • This is our nation’s capital and we should treat it with dignity and respect. If trash bins are full, please carry your trash or sign with you until you find an available trash bin.
  • Do not engage with counter-protesters. If they try to engage you, ignore them as best you can. However, if you are comfortable doing, so use your phone to video the situation. This is for your protection.
  • Once again, please be respectful of all people and stay focused on the cause of promoting and celebrating life, lovingly and graciously.

38th Annual Rose Dinner

The Rose Dinner is an evening of inspiration and fellowship to conclude the March for Life activities.

This year’s speakers are Sister Bethany Madonna of the Sisters of Life and Dr. William Hogan.

Sister Bethany Madonna (Keynote Speaker)

Sister Bethany Madonna entered the Sisters of Life in 2007. While attending the University of Central Florida, she had a profound encounter with the Lord, which drew her heart toward the vulnerable unborn and their mothers. After her graduation in 2006, she worked for the Respect Life Office for the Diocese of Orlando before joining her religious community. She made her final vows in 2015 and currently lives at the community’s Motherhouse, serving as the Vocation Director. She loves sharing the message of life and love.

Dr. William Hogan (Guest of Honor)

Dr. Bill Hogan began his medical career as an OBGYN in the 1960s, placing the loving care for expectant mothers and babies at the heart of everything he did, both inside and out of his practice. From serving women with crisis pregnancies in his medical practice to defending the Human Life Amendment before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dr. Hogan has fully exemplified the spirit of the pro-life movement. For this reason, the March for Life is honored to present Dr. William Hogan with the inaugural Pro-Life Legacy Award.

Learn more about the life and legacy of Dr. Bill Hogan.

Note: Tickets for the Rose Dinner are sold out and registration is closed.

Please reach out to Mary Lembke at marylembke@marchforlife.org to inquire about sponsorships or to be added to the waiting list. A small number of tickets may be available in January.

January 25th

There are several pro-life events happening around DC, including two conferences in downtown DC and at Georgetown University.

Prayer Vigil at Planned Parenthood Carol Whitehill Moses Center

Pro-lifers are welcome to pray outside of Planned Parenthood and offer life-saving alternatives.  (1225 4th St NE, Washington, DC 20002) From 8AM-12PM. There will be a Jericho Walk around the perimeter of the building.

Students for Life of America Conference

This year’s theme is History Maker: Casting a Vision for a Post-Roe America.

The Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions, handed down by our Supreme Court on January 22, 1973, have shaped our nation for the last 46 years. We are drawing a line in the sand to say, “no more!”

Pro-lifers are poised on the edge of a pro-life wave that has brought us two decades of advancement in pro-life legislation, the most pro-life Presidential administration in history, more pro-life judges being appointed across the nation and to the Supreme Court, and public opinion shifting ever more to rejecting abortion. Now, we must prepare for that wave to come crashing down on the Supreme Court decision that started it all.

If we really want to see Roe reversed and if we really want to see abortion become unthinkable, then now is the time to prepare for a post-Roe nation.

Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life

Mission

The Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life strives to promote intellectually rigorous discourse on the dignity of human life. Rooted in the Catholic tradition, the Conference is named in the honor of His Eminence John Cardinal O’Connor, the late Archbishop of New York and a Georgetown University alumnus, who principally committed himself to care for the defenseless and eloquently advancing the pro-life argument. We aim to encourage discussion among men and women of all faiths and backgrounds, including students, professionals, academics, and clergy. Attendees will leave the Conference equipped with the arguments and information necessary to better promote a consistent ethic of life in their own communities.

History

Traditionally held on the day before or after the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., the Conference was founded by Georgetown University undergraduate students in January 2000 and later named in honor of John Cardinal O’Connor. Cardinal O’Connor was renowned as a champion of the unborn and the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life seeks to continue his mission. Each year, our attendees have the opportunity to hear from the nation’s leading advocates in the pro-life movement, participate in small group discussions, meet other collegiate leaders, and experience the momentum that the movement brings to our nation’s capital each year during the March for Life.

Originally created for college and high school students, the Conference now attracts students, academics, clergy, and activists from around the country to reflect on a variety of pro-life topics. The Conference has grown to be the largest collegiate pro-life conference in the United States and to host many prominent pro-life speakers, including Helen Alvaré, Dr. Robert George, Margaret Colin, Dr. Michael Pakaluk, Deirdre McQuade, Archbishop Burke, Cardinal O’Malley, Dr. Charles Camosy, Ross Douthat, Jennifer O’Neill, Mother Agnes of the Sisters for Life, the Little Sisters of the Poor, Serrin Foster, Rep. Chris Smith, Dr. Wanda Franz, Dr. Mildred Jefferson, Dr. Alveda C. King, Rep. Henry Hyde, Richard Doerflinger, Jeanne Mancini, George Weigel, and Timothy Cardinal Dolan.

True Freedom Conference Focuses on Hope, Freedom, Love and Forgiveness Found in Christ

Below is a report from Kim Griffin on the True Freedom Conference that was held in center city Philadelphia on Saturday.  Additional pictures of the prayer rally are in the file below Kim’s report.  

thumbnail_IMG_1483

On October 26, 2019 people of faith, young and old gathered for a prayer vigil at the Women’s Center of Philadelphia.

The Women’s Center of Philadelphia is an abortion center in a non-descript building on Appletree Street in Center City Philadelphia. They provide abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy. On an average day, they abort 19 babies per day, 6437 per year.

Speakers at the event spoke of the hope, freedom, love and forgiveness found in Christ. And acknowledged the difficulties facing the pro-life movement but that is a worthy and important cause.

Here are some highlights:

Karly Brown from Temple University spoke about abortion being the “greatest battle of our day. “She pointed out that Christ was humiliated and mocked for sharing truth and so we will be too.

Pastor Curtis who comes to the clinic to pray with his three children and hand out blessing bags spoke and shared that each one of us is “made in the image and likeness of God.” The blessings bags contain handwritten cards with words of encouragement and pamphlets that contain resources for adoption, counseling, and free ultrasounds. There is also information on the abortion reversal pill. When women go the clinic for a chemical abortion they take the first dose of the abortion pill (Mifeprex or RU-486.) They are sent home to complete the abortion with two more doses. But if the woman changes her mind the effects of the first dose may be reversed and allow the pregnancy to continue. Women have up to 72 hours but ideally would call within 24 hours of taking the first dose for a greater chance of reversal. Women can call and receive help from a medical professional that will guide the woman towards reversing the effects of the abortion pill. The hotline number is (877) 558-0333.

Marlene Downing who is the executive director of Hope Pregnancy Center in North Philadelphia emphasized that pro-life efforts are never in vain, that we must not grow weary. The pregnancy Center offers positive alternatives to unplanned pregnancies working to meet both the needs of the woman and the child at every level.

And Father Joseph Coffey, a Navy Chaplain and champion for the unborn reminded us that the Quakers spoke out against slavery long before it was abolished. We too are speaking out against an injustice against humanity, the killing of the unborn. And our efforts are not in vain.

Pat Stanton, co-leader of Sidewalk Servants for 40 days for life pointed out that abortion statistics are in our favor.  Less women are getting abortions. And there have been two saves during this 40 days for life campaign in Philadelphia that we are aware of, perhaps many more.  Patrick further stated, “since the 1990’s the number of abortion clinics has dropped 68% from app. 2100 to 728. And according to 40 Days for Life, the results from 24 coordinated campaigns; 16,004 babies have been saved and 190 abortion workers have been converted and 100 abortion centers closed!”

During the prayer vigil, many women entered the clinic (Saturday is one of the clinics busiest days) but this Saturday at least the message of hope, forgiveness, and healing in Christ was shared.

Generation Life officially began its outreach to youth with a summer leadership conference at Drexel University during the summer of 2000. At this conference 200 students rallied together to form the first group of Gen Lifers in the Southeastern Pennsylvania area. Based on the success of this conference, the leadership at Generation Life decided that it was necessary to outreach to youth on a more fulltime basis. So in the fall of 2001, following a second successful summer leadership conference at Villanova University, Generation Life began to outreach to area schools (public, private and parochial) with the hiring of a fulltime workforce. Since 2001, Generation Life has invited over 400,000 young people throughout the Philadelphia and tri-state area to embrace the message of saving sex for marriage.

twins babies

On February of 1998, I found out I was pregnant by an older man that I had met at my job. At that time, I was a newly divorced single mother of a two-year-old boy, and working two jobs to make ends meet. After my divorce, I got very depressed and felt lonely. I, then, made some unwise decisions. I was not very interested in this man, but he was nice to me and gave me the attention that I had been wanting. Looking back, I was yearning for a ‘father figure‘ or someone who would take care of me.

One day, I contacted a close family member to confide in her. I was in dire poverty, and considered living in my car. My relative suggested an abortion, stating, ‘nobody would know.’ Once I told the Father he was not upset, but disinterested, he said he was too old and told me I should get an abortion; his children were all grown and he’s not going to do it again. The option of abortion was the last word I wanted to hear.  I finally decided to pray to God.  I poured out my heart to Him, stating, ‘God, I can barely take care of myself and my son; I cannot do this.’ I remember breaking down and crying out to Him, stating over and over, ‘Please tell me what to do.’

After, I had the urge to look through my phone book. While searching through my phone book, I came across ‘Abortion Alternatives’ and found ‘Birthright’ and a Crisis Pregnancy Care Center in my area. I thought I should give them a call,but I waited a few days.

Though I was baptized Catholic in my early 20’s, I fell away from my faith, interestingly enough, I drove past the Church, St. Michael’s in my hometown.  It had a huge sign out front that read “Pregnant? Need Help?” This caught my interest. I walked right in, full of embarrassment & nerves. I didn’t know where I was going or what I was doing but God did! I saw a bunch of people in a small room in the corner of the Church praying. So, I thought, prayer wont hurt and maybe someone here can tell me who to talk to.

They had out their rosaries,I had none. I was feeling more foolish by the minute & considered leaving and asked myself, “what am I doing here?” I listened and tried to follow their prayers.  I knew the simple prayers.  I was caught off guard when I discovered they were doing a rosary for the unborn!  I can’t leave now. They will hate me and shame me I thought. When it was finally over I waited and approached a lady and said I really enjoyed the rosary and had a question – I was so nervous! Uh, yeah, I actually saw your sign out front and I’m pregnant, I just blurted out. I probably cried. She gave me a big hug and she asked if I knew how far along I might be. I said maybe a month. She took out of her purse a tiny plastic doll (what I thought it was) and said your baby is probably around this size then. She gave it to me. She asked if I knew about the Pregnancy Center. I said not really. She set me up to visit the Pregnancy Center here locally. You know what? I never knew her name, but I will never forget her.

The Pregnancy Center helped me find many resources and were very kind to me. This is where I also read about the adoptive parents. Reading about this family,  I found that they lived in the hometown where I grew up, and that they had been longing for a baby.  I knew then they were the right parents for my baby.

I learned they had many of the values I had, had been married over 20 years, and waited and longed to have a baby for about 20 years as well! They nearly had a baby twice, but in each case, the birth-Mother changed her mind and decided to parent. That is her right to do so, but I fell in love with this couple like they were my own family. Before I ever heard the term ‘love them both’, they truly did love me and the baby! I also saw how they interacted with and loved my toddler son. I never considered any other family, I knew right away they were the One!

At five months pregnant, the adoptive mother attended an ultrasound appointment with me. We were able to find out together that I was having twins! During the appointment, the adoptive mother said that she saw an extra little hand across the ultrasound screen as if one of the babies were waving and saying, ‘Hi, I am here, too.’ Finding out that I was having twins confirmed my decision of adoption, that I could not care for three babies alone, and I wanted my twins to have a father in their lives.

The twins were born in September 1998, only three days before my due date. Even though I had a lot of trouble during the delivery, close to having a blood transfusion and hysterectomy, the twins were born perfect and healthy.

To be 100 percent honest, I almost changed my mind and decided I wanted to parent at the last moment. Oh, how I didn’t want to break their heart, but when I was very close to having a hysterectomy, I thought I am still so young, these might be my last children. God had His hands in all of it throughout. I am happy and grateful that I decided to place them in an open adoption with this loving family.

The journey was not always roses; no journey is. There is grief and loss and pain, but there is also beauty, and trust and  love and  family! To this day, the adoptive parents and I still remain friends, and my birth children are loved by me and many others.

I was pressured to abort and my situation was then considered a ‘crises pregnancy’.
I didn’t know how or what to do. I wanted them to have everything and to have a Father too. To know that they are loved by so many!

Never given up-only given More; Given Life; Given a family Given Hope and a Future  – (Jermiah29:11) Given Love

As birth Mom, I am blessed with Open Adoption, the ‘adoptive ‘Mom said to me – you will never have to worry about them or wonder about them being off in the wild blue yonder (her words).

They are soon to be 21! Happy birthday to these precious young adults. I love you with all my heart. I hope in sharing my story that especially those being pressured or considering abortion will heed my words below:

Please don’t let anyone pressure you to abort your child! 

You are a Strong Mama and there are many wonderful resources, (like Pregnancy Centers) that love you and your baby and will help see you through.

If you know it is not possible to parent or unable, whatever your situation may be, remember that adoption is a loving option.  Life is a beautiful gift and adoption is an amazing journey.

Thank you for reading. God Bless. And Happy 21st birthday to my birth twins!
You never regret choosing Life! ~Birth Mom Mindy
