Support Pro-Life Charities this #GivingTuesday December 1st

Giving Tuesday is just around the corner as many organizations are always asking people to make a contribution to their organizations before the year draws to a close.

Legacy of Life Virtual Fundraiser

This is an invitation to take part in the Legacy of Life’s Home for the Holidays virtual fundraiser.  The fundraiser started Thursday evening and continues through Sunday, 11/15 at midnight.  You can donate online and thanks to generous supporters, gifts will be doubled up to $40,000.  Access the virtual video through the website or through Legacy of Life’s Facebook page.

If you are not familiar with Legacy of Life, this non-profit organization invests in educating, inspiring and supporting women in unplanned pregnancies to find the strength to choose Life.  It provides Hope when pregnant women and their families are in despair and may turn to abortion.  This organization provides assistance to two pregnancy centers in the Philadelphia area, one in Center City Philadelphia and one in suburban Bucks County, PA.

Please view their website and learn additional details about the work that they do.  Watch the videos on the site – you will see pure joy in the face of the moms and their children who have been assisted through the Legacy of Life. You can also learn about volunteer opportunities and donations. I have personally taken a tour of one of their facilities and can attest to the warm and caring environment they have created for women who are unsure about which way to turn.

With the Covid 19 virus curtailing our social schedules, and with the holidays upon us and our Black Friday shopping on hold, perhaps you have a little wiggle room in your budget to offer a donation to a worthy cause. Help make a happy holiday season for a woman, her child and her family!

Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Holds Successful Walking with Moms in Need Event at Peace Valley Park

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day last Saturday as the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition held  a Walking with Moms in Need event at Peace Valley Park in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  Families, mothers and fathers pushing baby carriages, and even one man in a wheelchair joined us for this event.

Walking with Moms in Need is a national initiative backed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).  It is a one-year endeavor – an opportunity to express helping others in some way.

When our walk was complete, we enjoyed box lunches which were provided by MEI Catering located in Feasterville, Pennsylvania while social distancing under the pavilion.

Primary sponsors of this walk were Holy Spirit Radio, A Baby’s BreathA. Mastrocco Jr. Moving & Storage, Lincoln Investment, Long & Foster Chris Doherty & Marion Louie Team, Regina Mundi Council 4052 Bernie Kranicka.  We ask that you patronize these businesses.

Other supporters included St. Lawrence Church in Riegelsville, Nancy Gagnon, Anita Flynn, Pat Dowling, Greg Hoyt, Connie Schandein, Steve Jackson, Bob Noble, Pat Hess, Honoria Smith, and Sandy Slater.

While this is a one-year endeavor by the USCCB, the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition plans to make this an annual event.

If you were not able to attend this walk and would like to help, you can make an on-line donation using this link.  Proceeds from this walk go to pregnancy help centers in SE Pennsylvania to assist them in keeping their doors open.

Below are some pictures of last week’s walk.  Enjoy!

We are excited that this event has no borders.

August To-Do List

Hard to believe that it is August, and we’re more than half way through the summer.

The 8th month of the year can serve as a time to get in much needed family vacation before school is back in session. Sadly, the pandemic has put everyone’s plans on hold. Some are still unsure due to the unprecedented times.

The good news is Voices for Life has a to-do list throughout the month that can help you channel your Covid-19 frustrations in helping to advance the pro-life message. This list is applicable for your daily pro-life conviction.

  1. See Trump Card

It should come as no surprise that Dinesh D’Sousa, an immigrant of India, is not done defending the core principles of America. For the last eight years, he has been on the New York Times bestseller’s list, been falsely convicted for fraud, and has produced documentaries that have been game changers. His latest project, “Trump Card” is slated to be released on Friday, August 7th. Due to the temporary closing of movie theaters, you can view the documentary on-demand.

He played a pivotal role in exposing Hillary Clinton’s past which helped Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States with “Hillary’s America”.

In addition, his most recent book United States of Socialism, is out now. To make your purchase, visit here.

2. Holy Hour/Mass for Life

Many states have masses back in session (with restrictions). Some of the faithful should be encouraged to host a Holy Hour for an end to abortion. St. Teresa of Calcutta once believed that if every Catholic made a weekly Holy Hour, we would see an end to abortion. So what are you waiting for? Even if you can’t bring one to you church, make one on your accordance.

3. Take part in vigils in your community

Connect with your local pro-life coalition and find out about vigil locations and times. Pray with your family, college, or even church group. Create a sign that advertises free help with contact information.

4. Host a pro-life committee meeting in your church

Gather people in your parish or church and discuss ways you can help get the pro-life message to your community all around with another pivotal election approaching.

5. Donate to pro-life charity

Give anything you have to advance many pro-life groups making a difference. Some groups include: Generation Life, The Culture Project, St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation, Guiding Star, and Susan B Anthony List to name a few.

6. Work for Susan B Anthony List

The Susan B Anthony List is gearing up to help reach out to voters as the 2020 elections are coming very soon. They are hiring in many battleground states. To learn more, visit here.

7. Purchase Stork: Sowing Season

An indie author recently came out with an amazing book that promotes a pro-life message. To order your copy, visit here. It will make an excellent read in your backyard with a cold drink or while you’re catching rays at the beach.

8. Sign up for 40 Days for Life

The 40 Days for Life campaign begins on Wednesday, September 23rd and ends the weekend before the General Election. The spring campaign was interrupted with the pandemic. Now, with many states putting this phenomenon behind, it is time to go all in to save lives, pray for the workers, help moms choose life, and make a difference in your community.

9. Sidewalk Servants

Even though we’re a long way from the next 40 Days for Life campaign, there are babies being murdered every day. Your presence for at least an hour two during the week will make an impact on the abortion industry. Learn more about sidewalk servants here. Consider starting one in your community.

The Price is Wrong When You Fundraise for Planned Parenthood

Many of us have grown up to watch the most popular game show The Price is Right. From Bob Barker to Drew Carey, the show has spanned for nearly half a century.

During an airing of a special show, RuPaul, a celebrity known for his drag queen shows came on the show to have the winnings of each prize matched by the producers to go to Planned Parenthood.

This is despicable. Why would they fundraise for an organization that murders innocent children for more than a century in the name of eugenics, population control, and women’s rights and call it “charity”?

Read more about it here

In response to this, I am asking everyone to counter this by participating in the Culture Project’s giving campaign that is tomorrow (5/12) and Wednesday (5/13).

In addition, you are asked to take part in the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia area’s fundraiser that ends on May 15th.
