The following is from an email blast sent by Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America.
I want to invite you to a special pro-life, virtual event thisTuesday (September 8th) featuring one of Pennsylvania’s pro-life champions!
On Tuesday evening at 6PM EST, canyou join Students for Life Action and Drew Murray for aPro-Life Generation Roundtableon “Pursuing a Post-Roe Pennsylvania?”
Drew is running for Pennsylvania State House District 182, and his opponent is the infamous Brian Sims.
You remember PA Representative Sims right? He made headlines last year for harassing two young girls, Students for Life members, as they prayed outside of a Planned Parenthood facility in his Philadelphia district.
Drew has a solid pro-life record and will surely be an unwavering ally for the preborn if elected to the Pennsylvania State House. So, we would love for you to meet him and have the opportunity to ask him any questions you may have.
To register for the Pro-Life Generation PA Roundtable with Drew Murray, just click here.
At Students for Life Action, we are committed to enacting pro-life policies that will uphold the rights of the pre-born in Pennsylvania and working towards that day when abortion is unthinkable and illegal..
I hope you can join us this Tuesday, Sept 8th at 6pm EST!
The Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia is launching an exciting outreach in the effort to gear up for a post-Roe America. The following exerpt is from Joe Garecht.
In many ways, the end of legalized abortion in our country is closer than ever before. It is critical that we engage on every front of this battle with thoughtful, coordinated and effective advocacy for the unborn.
Would you consider joining our newly formed Pro-Life Action Team? Led by Joe Garecht and the PLU Public Affairs committee, the goal of this group is to concentrate citizen advocacy for the pro life cause in the spheres of politics and the media.
Commitment will be a specific action item once every other month – typically contacting a legislator via phone or email, or sending a comment/op ed to local media outlets – and occasional meetings, no more than twice per year.
Our voices are powerful! We have heard from state legislators that they felt compelled to act on bills in front of their committee after receiving as few as 12 emails or phone calls from constituents. When we organize and combine our advocacy efforts we improve the chance for lasting change in our community on behalf of the unborn.
Please send your name, email and phone number to Tom Stevens with the subject Pro-Life Action Team to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know we can add you to the Pro-Life Action Team!
In addition, Students for Life of America have an opportunity to give you the knowledge and tools to engage in public policy.
While COVID-19 is affecting the pro-life movement’s ability to train grassroots activists of all ages, Students for Life is now able to bring our pro-life trainings from campuses right into your home. Enroll in pro-life “majors” in each pillar of pro-life activism.
Not a student? No problem! Continuing your education is important to us and there is no age limit on being an effective pro-life advocate.

The following is from Maria Gallagher, Legislator Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation comparing President Trump’s record against former Vice-President Joe Biden’s record. The Federation recently endorsed President Trump for relection.
Please print out and share this comparison piece.
I am once again sharing the comparison piece on the Presidential candidates on the life issues.
This is an educational piece, not a political one, so it can be distributed in churches and other places where pro-lifers congregate. It can also be printed in newsletters and shared on social media. You will find it below.
As the conventions for both parties draw to a close, we will do a recap to pit speakers from both events against each other. For this first edition, we will analyze Sister Diedre and Sister Simone.
Sister Deirdre Byrne
Sister Deirdre Byrne is a member of the Little Sisters of the Sacred Heart. She has over 20+ years with the Army Medical Corps and has worked at a missionary. In the late 90s, she pursued a vocation and found the Little Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary and became a member of the order in 2002. It helped her continue her medical profession while answering God’s call to serve him. During the third night of the RNC, she correlated her medical background with the issue of life saying:
“As a physician, I can say unequivocally life begins at conception. While what I have to say may be difficult for some to hear, I am saying it because I’m not just pro-life, I’m pro-eternal life and I want all of us to end up in heaven someday together.”
To listen to the full; version of her speech, visit here.
Sister Simone Campbell
Sister Simone Campbell is best known as the leader of “Nuns on the Bus”. They are a controversial group that promotes abortion. During the Democratic National Convention, Sister Simone delivered an address in which she celebrated the Democrat’s abortion platform.
Divided Catholic Church in America
What we have saw between the two is a good Catholic from a bad one. Sister Deirdre has said that the unborn is the most vulnerable in our society and they must be protected.
Meanwhile, Sister Simone has cheered the Democrats for allowing abortion on demand. Why would she do this?
This shows that with more than half of Catholics still buying the lies from the party of slavery, sodomy, terrorism, abortion, and even now socialism that good and faithful Catholics must rise up and take up the gauntlet to defeat this modern church that is a 180 degree opposite of what was established in 33 AD.
Our Catholic faith is at stake. We cannot support someone who is Catholic in Name Only while he has a shaky history of promoting abortion.
The following is from National Right to Life Committee. Please everyone, make sure you go to the polls to vote this November and vote pro-life!!
WASHINGTON — As day three of the Democratic National Convention opened last week, the Democratic Party’s theme for that evening was “A More Perfect Union.” But if the Democratic Party prevails this November and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris become our nation’s President and Vice President, the losers will be unborn children and their mothers.
“As a presidential candidate, Sen. Harris pledged all-out support for a wide range of proabortion policies,” said Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. “Sen. Harris pledged to advance a radical agenda of abortion on demand and create policies that would severely curtail a state’s ability to pass any protective pro-life legislation.” As a member of Congress, Kamala Harris has a 100% life-time pro-abortion rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America which enthusiastically celebrated her selection as Joe Biden’s running mate.
While running for President, Sen. Harris introduced her “Reproductive Rights Act” action plan. Included in her plan were a series of sweeping pro-abortion policies and directives, such as:
• States and localities would be subject to a “preclearance requirement” if those states had a “pattern of violating Roe v. Wade in the preceding 25 years.” The “patterns” in question would be determined by the Department of Justice (DOJ). • “No abortion law or practice will take effect until the Department of Justice certifies it comports with Roe v. Wade.” • States would have to “prove any new law or practice does not deny or abridge” the so-called “right” to abortion. • States and localities would be “required to submit any proposed change to DOJ. If the jurisdiction is unable to prove the change comports with Roe and the Women’s Health Protection Act, DOJ must object to the change.” To ensure that states would be forced into lockstep with the pro-abortion policies her administration would have pursued. • A Department of Justice in a Kamala Harris Administration would have “an affirmative duty to review submissions and make formal determinations” regarding any pro-life laws passed by states or localities. • Abortionists would have “the ability to challenge DOJ’s approval of a law or practice in federal court, serving as a check on hostile administrations.”
As a presidential candidate, Sen. Harris promised to protect Planned Parenthood from attempts to defund the abortion giant. In addition, she also vowed to nominate judges who would support Roe v. Wade and would work to reverse the Hyde Amendment. Her administration would also have promoted abortion around the world.
“Joe Biden’s choice of Kamala Harris sends a clear message that a Biden/Harris Administration would be hostile to the unborn child and her mother,” said Tobias. “Under a Biden/Harris administration, more and more children would die in abortions and their mothers would suffer.”
Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-tolife affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots prolife organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
News came in today that Former Vice President and presumed Democratic nominee, Joe Biden has picked his running mate. His move is one of historic proportions. He selected California Senator, Kamala Harris. Who is she?
Record on Abortion
Kamala Harris, the senator of California (since 2016), native of San Francisco, is a pro-abortion senator. Her record on abortion is so extreme that she has wrongfully accuse David Daleiden and Sandra Merrit. Even today the media is still silent about this major cover up that exploded in the news five years ago. Sadly, Senator Harris has continued to defend Planned Parenthood. Currently, there is a lawsuit against the running mate over the matter.
Harris is no friend of Catholic Americans, let alone the Catholic Church. Instead, she is the complete opposite. Case in point, during the 2018 confirmation hearing of Brian Buescher as district judge of Nebraska, Harris used his membership for the Knights of Columbus as a way to disqualify his nomination. Fortunately, Buescher was confirmed by the senate to the district court. Senator Ben Sasse called out her actions along with other of her colleagues that used religious clause that radical senators pretend exists to keep nominees from the court.
Like the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party, Harris does have a shady past when it came to mass incarcerations. African Americans had a high imprisoned rate than others. Even former Vice President Joe Biden ushered in laws that has done damaged to the black communities.
What are we up against?
The Democratic Party has proved that they do not care about African Americans though they embrace the Black Lives Matter group. They have steered away from Catholicism more and more. Additionally, they are doing more harm than good when they protect the largest abortion chain in America… Planned Parenthood.
In November, we cannot let these two radicals undue everything the Trump Administration has done in 3 years.
