Philadelphia Women’s Center Attacks Christmas

777 appletree … one of the saddest places on earth where attacks against Jesus and everything He represents are real. Over 6000 babies are murdered every year here. Most of them are black… yet the BLM sign is displayed prominently.

Here is their front window… the top shelf is Saint dolls all holding signs that make fun of the pro-lifers that stand outside faithfully.

The second shelf they have taken the manger .. hung up a pro-choice banner within it, hung condoms from the statues of the three wise men..

Please pray for a conversion of hearts here, especially Heather Loesch, the security guard who has fallen away from the faith and has belittled many pro-life men and women alike with her vulgarity and ignorance

When loving, kind, compassionate prayer warriors come together outside this place lives are saved.

Please join us for 40daysforlife 365 outside both of the downtown Philly abortion centers.

Pictures from Annual Stand Up for Life Dinner

Several attendees and board members submitted pictures from the annual event. See article here.

Enjoy the pictures of the event. Don’t forget to support pro-life organizations during #GivingTuesday campaign on Tuesday, November 30th. Learn more here.

Annual Stand Up for Life Dinner Returned in Person With Sellout

After a two year hiatus, the annual Stand Up for Life Dinner returned in person. Last year’s event was virtual which saw Matt Walsh and two award recipients while also the call for donations to continue the life-saving work of the Pro Life Union of Greater Philadelphia.

On Sunday evening, 1200 strong came out to the in person event while others streamed it live. The event was a sellout and the organizers couldn’t picture a better way to be back in person. However one person attended the event, everyone was inspired to continue the fight for life from womb to tomb while also contributing to advance the great works. The room was filled with people of all walks of life from people getting their feet wet in pro-life work at grammar school level up to the seasoned peaceful demonstrators that have many stories to tell to the younger and upcoming pro-life leaders and activists.

The event also saw three recipients who were awarded for their heroic efforts to defend life.

  1. Deborah Molina received the 2021 Be Not Afraid Award for leading Sidewalk Servants so faithfully since its inception less than five years ago. Through her efforts, babies have been saved between the 40 Days for Life campaign across the Greater Philadelphia Area
  2. Regina O’Reilly, a longtime member of the Pro-Life Union’s board, received the James Kelly Pioneer Award for her years of pro-life involvement
  3. Dominic Sceski received the John and Harriet Stanton Young Leader Award for his work with Generation Life and leading more young adults in getting involved in pro-life work.

We are proud of the recipients and for all of their hard work.

The event was headlined by Patricia Sandoval. She was a former Planned Parenthood employee who promoted sex education in schools. She shared about her abortion experience and how she saw how the abortion industry operated like a chop shop. Her involvement drove her to substance and drug abuse that at one point left her without food or water for five days. Then, God transfigured and healed her. She is now a mother, wife, TV personality on EWTN, and most importantly the daughter of the king.

“ALL of this is about GOD… how can we serve HIM with the little time we have on this planet. He is so generous to us. He gives His very flesh and blood to us every single day, He loves us more than we deserve, and He is so compassionate and forgiving.” Dr. Monique Ruberu said as she reflected on a very moving evening.

Father Chris Walsh ended the evening with a plea to “give to the Pro-Life Union as we approach Giving Tuesday on November 30th”.

Even Tom Stevens used the example of one couple who changed their mind on aborting their child thanks to the witness of Mark Houck, founder of The King’s Men. That baby was born and her name is Neveah. Stevens remarked that it is those who give alms,time and talent to cultivate the life-saving and giving messages to all.

SENATOR LEAHY CALLING IT QUITS

For nearly half a century, Senator Leahy, a staunch Catholic In Name Only, has had a high score rating from NARAL. He has time and time again supported abortion expansion, attacked pro-life nominations to the Supreme Court (the most recent was Amy Coney Barrett last year).

He even introduced nine bills to expand abortion.

After half a century, Senator Leahy was out of touch with America with every attempt to expand abortion. We can only hope that he repents of his actions.

BIG WINS IN VIRGINIA’S STATEWIDE ELECTIONS; LIFE, FAMILY, AND FREEDOM PREVAIL

We are recapping the results of the 2021 civic, gubernatorial, and even state elections. For results of the PA Supreme race, see this article for more information.

The motto of the state of Virginia reads, “Sic Semper Tyrannis” meaning “Thus ever unto tyrants”. For the longest time, tyrants have run Virginia, home to eight Presidents of the United States. From McAuliffe to Northam and even senate races that have had no contest let alone the ten-point win by President Joe Biden last year proved that tyranny must stop.

Many analysts and even Vice President Kamal Harris predicted in her own words that this election would, “determine what could happen in 2022, 2024, and so on”. Well, election night 2021 proved that the tyrannical actions of the Biden Administration had to be put to a halt. Glenn Youngkin, despite being behind in many early polls, came out triumphant to replace Ralph Northam by defeating former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe.

Not only was abortion a pivotal issue of the race but also what Terry McAullife said on the trail about entrusting children to the state when it comes to education while pushing critical race theory and parents were not allowed to have a say. The parents have spoken. Life has triumphed over death. It was a miracle. A pro-life majority will also have possession of Virginia house by one seat. On top of it, the race shows that every voice matters when it comes to our three inalienable rights given to us by God.

As we look ahead to 2022, let us remember those God-given rights when he put forth strong men and women of character and morals, no matter what party we affiliate with.

We have just begun. Let us carry this with us in the midterm election year let alone your own state’s races.

Day 40 of Prayer and Scripture to #EndAbortion (10/31/21)

John 19: 26-27

“When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman behold, your son.”  Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

Let us Pray

On this the last day of our 40 Days of Prayer and Scripture to End Abortion, let us reflect on the perfect love between Jesus and his mother, Mary.  Only the two of them knew the deepest of mother/child bonds from The Annunciation all the way through to the Way of the Cross.  And when Jesus had barely a breath left in him, he directed that his mother would be taken care of after his death. And in doing say actually professed he was giving her to all of us.  Father, let the world again know the most perfect of loves between all mothers and their children in the womb.

We hope these devotionals offered you time to reflect on abortion from many aspects.  Let us all resolve to take time and routinely do what we can to turn the tide against sacrificing these little lives in the womb.  If we all take a step each day, we can complete the path to #EndAbortion.

Day 39 of Prayer and Scripture to #EndAbortion (10/30/21)

Matthew 11: 28-29

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves.

Let Us Pray

Father, do not let us forget those women and men who are burdened with regret and sadness for having aborted their children.  We do not know what was in their hearts or their life circumstances at the time the decision was made.  Give them peace and compassion, lift their burden and most importantly, lead them to healing thru organizations such as Rachel’s Vineyard. Please bless them and heal them and let them know the comfort you always offer us, your children.
