National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, September 12, 2020

MixBabies’ remains left on a loading dock in Northbrook, IL back in 1988 by a commercial incineration company called Precision Energy Systems — that is why we now have a National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children every 2nd Saturday in September nationwide.

These remains were in boxes labeled POC (Products of Conception) and were gathered from several abortion clinics in that area, many of which were owned by Susan Hill of the National Women’s Health Organization.  Blessedly, an anonymous tip alerted a crisis pregnancy center of the forgotten remains and arrangements were made to give these children a proper burial.  Over the years there have been numerous instances across our country of children’s remains left unwanted and uncared for after abortion procedures. In our own city of Philadelphia, the remains of aborted children that were found at convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors abortion clinic eventually were buried at Laurel Hill Cemetery.knights

This past Saturday a group  of approximately 25 people took part in a memorial service at Our Lady of Grace Cemetery, Bucks County.  The Knights of Columbus, who over the years have financially supported the burial of babies’ remains, were there in attendance as was Lauren Kretzer, the Regional Director of Silent No More.  Silent No More is an organization whose mission is to raise awareness of the effect abortion has on women, men and society in general.  Lauren shared her personal abortion story with us and the emotional and physical effects abortion had on her life and how she was able to find healing thru God’s providence.

We prayed in unison for babies all over the world who have been tossed away as medical waste, no dignity or respect provided for their tiny bodies and souls.  Over 61 million abortions have occurred in the U.S. since Roe v Wade went into law in 1973.  Let us take time every September to acknowledge the enormity of that number and the tragedy of these lost lives.  These were generations of our children who it was decided were not equal enough or deserving enough to live their lives as we were able to.  Let us never forget, just as we promised we would never forget those lives of the men, women and children who tragically died during the attacks on the U.S. on 9/11.

Waco Joins 120 cities in National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children on September 12th

The following is fromJohn Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco. Waco pro-life residents are encouraged to attend and join in prayer in memory of the children of the womb lost through abortion.  

 

Less than two weeks away. I am so eager to see you there. We will have a tent and the weather is getting better. With a backdrop of 4,000 white crosses and the Tomb of the Unknown Baby, the program will be from 9 to 10:30 AM. Waco is one of 55 memorial sites nationwide where an aborted baby has been interred. You will love our keynote speaker Heather Hobbs of Save The 1 ministries. The title of her message will be “Don’t be deceived. She is a child no matter how she was conceived.” Heather resisted pressure to abort three of her four children because the pregnancies were “hard cases.”

Local speakers will be Deborah McGregor (CareNet), Aine Fitzgerald (40 Days for Life) John Pisciotta (Pro-Life Waco), and Lynn Rasberry with a personal testimony. You will learn how you can incorporate defending babies in the womb into your Christian walk. Among the 60 million babies lost to abortion in America are 20,000 at Planned Parenthood in Waco. Let’s honor these precious ones lost to abortion and defend their brothers and sisters threatened in our community in 2020.

Zoom Prayer Meeting on Good Friday

The following is from an email blast sent by Dr. Monique Ruberu

Pat and I are so proud of all of you!! You guys have continued to pray and that prayer support has allowed the few out on the front lines to be so effective…

40 days officially ended on the 4th so now we are into sidewalk servant time, but since we are unable to do our usual Good Friday closing and vigil outside of PP we thought we could possibly come together online with maybe a few people coming to us from the front lines at 12th and locust…

We can have a max of 10 people with physical distancing downtown, so if you want to go there please let me know so we can be ready for you with a mask and know where you will stand.
Pat will have a cross down there and hopes to do stations of the cross.

Please email Monique for the Zoom link at roobearoo@hotmail.com. 

Evangelium Vitae- 25 years later

For most of his papacy, St. John Paul the Great emphasize the necessity for every Catholic to protect the sanctity of human life.

For him, his work that was promulgated on this day 25 years ago rings true today.

The point of the document is to reinforce church teaching on the sanctity of human life. Not only does he reinforce the teaching on abortion and contraception, but he also takes it a step further by discussing the death penalty stating that it is “unholy and unlawful”.

Another form of a murder he discusses is euthanasia “grave violation of the law of God” because it is a form of deliberate killing.

Overall, the encyclical was a pro-life manifesto. It defines what it means to be for all stages of life and how we can pick and choose which form of life we should defend.

March is done. Now what?

Trenton Rally for Life

 

By now, many of us finished marching for life in either DC, San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, or even anywhere in our state.

The question now is, “Are we finished?”

No, you have just begun. In fact, you should be pro-life 24/7/365. Yes, being pro-life is not reserved once a year like Christmas or Thanksgiving. Instead, it must be a daily thing.

We are called to be pro-life every day. That will mean taking part in prayer vigils.

I even outlined 10 things you can do that do not have to apply as a yearly thing but a daily routine.

If you are one of those people that think being pro-life is once a year, it is time to start taking a leap of faith.

The First Sitting President to Attend the March for Life is……

“Let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: All children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God.” President Donald Trump

In 2018, Vice President Mike Pence became the first VP to attend the March for Life. Those who are attending this year’s March for Life will also get to be a part of a historical feat. This was never done by Presidents, Reagan, Bush Sr or Bush Jr.

News has broken that Donald Trump will be the first President of the United States to attend the largest grassroots rally ever. He made the announcement today via https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js“>Twitter.

Even Abby Johnson rejoices over the news on her public page:

“There has NEVER been a president in United States history that has done more to break down the abortion industry more than President Trump. Not Bush, not Reagan…no one Like it or not, that’s a fact.”

Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Foundation, released these words in light of the news.

“President Trump and his Administration have been consistent champions for life and their support for the March for Life has been unwavering,” she said in a statement. “We are grateful for all these pro-life accomplishments and look forward to gaining more victories for life in the future.”

“I ask every citizen of this great nation to listen to the sound of silence caused by a generation lost to us, and then to raise their voices for all affected by abortion, both seen and unseen.” Donald Trump
