As pro-lifers fight to Save the Hyde Amendment, Students for Life of America and Democrats for Life will tag team to hold rallies across the nation to convince elected officials to incline the life saving amendment in the new fiscal budget.
This Friday, July 9th, a rally will be held outside of Rep. Brendan Boyle’s office in Rhawnhurst section of Philadelphia. Rally begins at 11:00 am.
If voters from the Keystone State were at the polls during the primary, they may have noticed the first question on whether the governor should have limited executive power. It was common sense. Now one was above the law.
By a 7-point margin (53%-46%), voters said yes to limiting the governor’s power. This came during the advent of the pandemic that took place last year. He closed churches [which should have been opened to encourage people to pray for the end of COVID-19] and businesses, yet he let abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood continue having abortions.
Despites the state’s efforts to pass bills ending the pandemic, Wolf vetoed every measure. That send the message for the people to decide at the polls and the convincing victory showed.
This shows that accountable is still alive in Pennsylvania as 2022 is around the corner.
Pennsylvania is just the first state to do so. Many others are looking to follow suit.
It’s time for We the People to stand up to tyrants like Commie Tommy Wolf and take our states back. Wolf’s legacy lied in his response to the scamdemic that happened and how he radically promoted abortion in the heat of the lockdowns where pro-lifers were not permitted to be peacefully demonstrating outside of abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood.
Apply this axiom to what we are willing to tolerate from our government representatives, from our local committee office all the way up to the President of the United States.
What behavior are we willing to tolerate?
This past Friday the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania held a public forum outside of Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick’s local office in Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania to voice our concerns with his support of the Equality Act. A Republican, Fitzpatrick in 2019 said he would not vote for that version of the Equality Act without a religious exemption; however, two years later he voted for the 2021 version of the Equality Act which specifically notes there is no exemption for religious concerns.
Here is some of the fine print of this act as currently written and waiting on a Senate vote.
*This legislation authorizes individuals and or government officials to punish Catholic hospitals and/or health care professionals who decline to commit abortions or gender transition surgeries. It allows no provision for conscience rights, as any reference to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act is expressly disallowed.
*Taxpayer funding of elective abortions would now be a result of the “equality” act.
*Minors who wish to pursue gender transitioning surgery/hormonal change would not require parental consent
*Anyone who identifies as opposite to their biological sex would need only to state this fact to join same sex schools and teams. Also, no questions asked to enter private facilities such as restrooms, locker rooms, or women’s shelters. In other words, a biological male who perceives himself as a woman can now attend a girls-only school and proceed to play on the same athletic field, regardless if any hormonal therapy has taken place or not. This could have a profound effect on women’s sports and sport scholarships. Also, a biological male can enter a women’s shelter if he so states he identifies as a woman. The Equality Act contains no acknowledgement that males and females are biologically different. What happened to “follow the science” as we have been admonished to do for global warming or Covid concerns?
I have no idea how they plan to protect a woman in a shelter if a straight male enters, clearly planning to exploit the Equality Act for his own purposes, which could include assault, rape or murder. Apparently Fitzpatrick didn’t see the need to consider or protect these women’s rights.
Now is the time to hold our representatives’ feet to the fire. One of the positive results of Friday’s rally is there was a genuine sharing of information how to get involved in local politics in order to have your voice heard. Search for local Facebook pages for your local township, call your state representative to obtain information of local party committees, ask neighbors and friends if they have any contacts.
Politics is like commerce. We buy a particular product because we like what it does and we pay for it with our vote. Once we notice a degradation in the quality of the product, we can opt to take our business elsewhere. We should never put the failed product back in our pantry or closet and simply say, oh well, nothing I can do about that. There is always something you can do and silently tolerating poor performance or behavior should not be our default.
Last week, I attended CPAC for the first time. This year it was held in Orlando due to the restrictions from its preceding location in Baltimore.
The event gathers thousands of like-minded conservatives from all across the United States and even parts of the world. Those in attendance got to hear from elected officials and even personalities in conservative media.
Below is my review of the event.
The even proves that big gatherings can be held as we navigate past COVID. Florida has been open for business and it was an outstanding choice on their part to allow tourism and event large events happening. Yes, Karen, people were wearing masks when walking around.
Many topics were covered during the event, especially our bill of rights. Many elected officials have taken time to talk about what is plaguing our country.
The ecumenical committee is growing at CPAC, particularly among Jewish, Catholics, and Protestants. Even Fr. Frank Pavone was present to celebrate mass for Catholic attendees.
A great red carpet of the upcoming Roe v Wade movie.
The only miss that is worth nothing is the results of a straw poll conducted by The Washington Times. The poll was to gauge attendees on the top three issues pressing them. Surprisingly, the recent election and its integrity was Number one with almost 70% of the votes. The issue that came in last was pro-life. How disappointing.
Overall, I do recommend attending. Pro-Lifers should not pass on a chance to connect with other pro-lifers and hopefully we can make this a more pressing issue.
Two brothers in Southeastern Pennsylvania are looking to make a difference in the 2022 election in the Keystone State. Both are doing extraordinary work in the state respectively.
Joe Gale, 33 currently holds a public office in Montgomery County, challenging the liberal rhetoric day in and day out. Joe overcame some smear campaigns from the GOP Swamp that has attacked his character all because he doesn’t fit the establishment agenda. Joe announced on Monday that he will run for the office of governor for Pennsylvania.
Sean Gale, the brother of Joe, announced on Monday that he will run for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania. He makes this announcement after learning of the retirement of Pat Toomey. Sean, 30, could potentially become the youngest senator in Congress when it is all set and done.
Both brothers can make a difference. They are willing to stand against the establishment, put the people first, and defend life from womb to tomb. These are the candidates that we must support in every given election if we want results.
We’re only days into the month of January of 2021, yet what happened through the Black Lives Matter protest has carried into the New Year. What started as an historic day to end the process of the Electoral College Process, two weeks prior to the inauguration, would soon turned into chaos.
Once again, our nation’s capital was at the center of national headlines. What started as a day for like-minded people to peacefully protest in favor of election integrity was turned into what many witnessed last summer. The event gained more coverage than the nationwide BLM protests across the nation.
Many senators and representatives have condemned the actions of those involve let alone President Trump asking everyone to be peaceful through a tweet, only to be deleted by big tech. Speculations are running amoss that ANTIFA infiltrated the peaceful rally, only to raid the capitol building. In time, many elected officials had to scramble for cover and do what they can to get away from the trespassers.
Sadly, the incident on Wednesday has cost the life of a police officer, Brian Sickwick. Ofc. Sickwick was severely injured when confronting the mom only to be pronounced dead at the hospital.
Another casualty from the event was Ashli Babbitt. Babbitt, a 14 year veteran of the Air Force, joined fellow patriots in sharing their concern over the integrity of the elections. Unfortunately, she was shot during an altercation when paid actor posing as Trump supporters were breaking into the capitol building.
What happened last summer and on January 6th had two things in common. The first is that human life was destroyed. Why? Many families had to or will stare at an empty seat during family gatherings with that thought sinking in their minds. The second is agitators wanted to get the media’s attention to help them jumped to their own doom and gloom conclusions. The violence that have happened this week and last are unacceptable, no matter who is at fault.
We need to do better. Violence is not going to protect and nurture life. Rather, it destroys it. We must do better to promote, peace, love, and mercy in our communities and it begins with us.
May Brian Sickwick and Ashli Babbitt rest in peace.
Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord. And let the perpetual light shine upon them
In an appalling move by the President of the United States Conference of Catholic bishops, Archbishop Jose Gomez congratulated Joe Biden on becoming the 46th President of the United States. He goes on to say that it is great to have another Catholic in the White House.
How could the head of all of the bishops in the United States congratulate a man who has supported abortion through his nearly half a century of public service as senator and vice president.
Catholics should be very concerned as Archbishop Gomez has slapped faithful Catholics in their faces with his statement celebrating the slaughter of innocent unborn children.
It is Monday, November 9th, 6 days since the 2020 election and while the media has reported the Democratic candidate, Joseph Biden, as the new president-elect, the final decision still is being wrestled in the courts as the ballot process is reviewed.
In the meantime, there are other legislature election outcomes which ultimately affect us in a more personal way as to how our local county, district and state representatives answer to their constituents. My initial goal was to post result updates on local elections but as we have readers from everywhere I’m going in another direction and giving you some homework!
How many of us are really familiar with our U.S. House and Senate reps and also our State House and Senate representatives and what districts we are in? Do we know where their local offices are? How often do we contact these people to offer our yea’s or nay’s as to the bills and laws they initiate or vote for or against? As this particle election seemed to be fraught with contention and opinions fueled by social media and in many cases selected blurbs of info (on both sides), it is imperative that we do not just sit back for another 3 ½ years and jump in at the end to voice our concerns with strangers on the internet when we haven’t taken the time to actually communicate with the people forming policy.
I live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a nearby suburb of Philadelphia. As part of a pro-life effort, I have actually met with my local Pennsylvania House Representative Todd Polinchock(R) to discuss his stance on pro-life initiatives put before him. So, at election time, he wasn’t just a name on banner by the side of the road (he won!). Also, my U.S. Rep Brian Fitzpatrick (R) won over his Democratic opponent Christine Finello. I know our readers come from many home bases so I am providing an interactive link so you can track how your particular state 2020 elections went. I would also suggest getting familiar with your local state websites so you can stay apprised of district changes due to gerrymandering or census changes and read actual bills instead of going on hearsay as to what is or is not included. You can also contact your local state pro-life or right-to-life websites for further discussions about abortion laws. In order to bolster our pro-life efforts, we need to ensure that we have the facts and credible information to state our case on behalf of our children who cannot yet speak.
A prime example of this is noted in one of our earlier blog posts concerning New Jersey’s Reproductive Freedom Act. Obtain factual details directly from the bill, contact your local representatives and share accurate information with contacts who vote in that state. Babies and moms’ lives are at stake if restrictions are lifted.
As it looks like we will continue to be restricted somewhat on the social scene due to Covid concerns, let us use this time thoughtfully to gather facts, to have our voices heard and make our legislators actually work for their pay instead of just skimming along hoping they don’t have to explain themselves to us, the people who ultimately pay their salaries.
“Get out and vote” was widely publicized the last few weeks. That’s not good enough. These aren’t Congeniality contests. Know who you are voting for inside and out and if you can depend on them to be your voice, just as our babies in the womb are depending on us!
