Here’s the Schedule for the Philadelphia March for Life Next Saturday, January 23rd

Below is the schedule for next week’s March for Life in Philadelphia.  We encourage everyone to join the Pro-Life Union for their inaugural event.  And since the March for Life in Washington, DC is now being done virtually, it’s a perfect opportunity for those in or around Philadelphia who were planning to go to DC to come out and give public witness in your own neighborhood.  

Here’s Our Schedule!

09:00 AM     Roman Catholic Mass

Archbishop Nelson Perez will kick off the day by celebrating Roman Catholic Mass at the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul. All are welcome!

10:30 AM     Let The March Begin!

March begins! We will begin our march at the Cathedral and we will have many stops along our route, including the Philadelphia Women’s Center where over 6,500 abortions are performed each year.

12:00 PM     Rally and Speakers

We will conclude the march with a rally at Independence Mall where you will get to listen to some incredibly compelling speakers to wrap up the day.

More than 17,000 unborn children are being quietly exterminated in Greater Philadelphia annually. Come stand with us to say, “ENOUGH!”

We are looking forward to keeping you updated during our planning and preparations for this event. But what’s going to make this event great… is YOU.

Please invite at least one friend to join you at the march and to help us in our protest! Don’t miss this!

Masks and social distancing will be required.

Please Join Our Annual Rally for Life in Warminster, Pennsylvania on January 22nd

Public WitnessIn the past we have held our  Rally for Life the same day as the annual March for Life in Washington, DC.  This year we have decided to have this rally on the actual anniversary of the Supreme Court decision declaring abortion lawful throughout the nation.

Our program will begin at 12:00 noon at the VFW located at 645 Louis Dr, Warminster, PA.  We will have light refreshments and a short program. After our program we will solemnly walk to the Warminster Planned Parenthood where we will have 10 minutes of silent pray.  Our program will then end with a closing prayer.  (see program below) 

We will pray for the over 60,000,000 babies killed since this decision.  We will also pray for those who procure, provide or promote the killing of our preborn brothers and sisters.

Prayer is the most important weapon we have to combat the evils in our society; and prayer vigils outside of abortion facilities combine this powerful weapon with our witness to the crimes against humanity taking place in our communities every day.

Whether you are planning on attending the March for Life in Washington, DC this year or not, please consider joining us on January 22nd to give witness to the horrible sin of abortion.

Signs will be provided and CDC Guidelines will be observed.  

This event is sponsored by the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition

Refreshments provided by the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania 

 

Please print out and distribute the flyer and the program below. Hope to see many of you then.

Protest Against the Grafting of Aborted Baby Parts Onto Mice at the University of Pittsburgh

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, I came across this in my email.  If you thought you needed an excuse to stand up and speak out, here it is!  How barbaric?  How far has our country sunk? Scalping preborn babies and using these scalps for ‘research’.  

This is why we sidewalk counsel, this is why we stand outside abortion chambers to pray and give witness, this is why we start and volunteer at homes and pregnancy help centers, this is why we blog. We do these things so that no child will ever again be subjected this this cruelty. 

Please everyone, especially if you live in Pennsylvania, sign this protest from TPF Student Action below and then forward to all your family and friends and ask them to do the same.  We must, now more than ever, be a voice for the unborn.  

University of Pittsburgh

from John Ritchie, TFP Student Action, Director

What are “humanized” mice?

Unfortunately, the University of Pittsburgh is using human organs and skin from aborted babies for “research” — grafting baby scalps onto mice and rats.

Dr. Stacy Trasancos, who opposes the practice, explains:

“Human hair was evident by 12 weeks but only in the grafts taken from the fetal scalps. In the scalp grafts, fine human hair can be seen growing long and dark surrounded by the short white hairs of the mouse.”

Please:

Sign your protest against this barbaric experimentation.

I’m sick to even write about this issue, but this is where the Culture of Death has taken society. This is what a society without God and without morals offers.

“The images literally show a patch of baby hair growing on a mouse’s back,” wrote Dr. Trasancos in the National Catholic Register.

The Most Rev. Joseph E. Strickland, Bishop of Tyler, Texas, condemned the use of aborted baby parts for research.

“These are crimes against humanity that should be prosecuted,” he tweeted.  “Silence in the face of these atrocities simply adds to the evil. Wake up America! Demand that this stops NOW!”

Click here to tell the University of Pittsburgh to stop using aborted baby parts.

I’m rushing to collect 20,000 protest petitions by Wednesday. Whatever you can do to help me reach 20,000 people is most appreciated.

Thank you for fighting the good fight.

P.S. – Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh published a study in Scientific Reports revealing how the institution scalped victims of abortion (human babies) and transplanted their skin onto lab rodents for medical experimentation.

Philadelphia Women’s Center 10 Years Later: Reflection

On January 8th 2011, a young man stood outside of one of the largest abortion facilities in Pennsylvania. He was nervous that even the bitter cold morning did not keep him from hiding it. Later, a seasoned pro-lifer (the late John Stanton) pulled up as he helped him place a sign on the corner that floored him about the number of abortions committed at this location alone. Before he can blinked, his neighbors showed up and were thrilled to see him. His presence gave them hope.

Since that bitter cold morning of January 2011, he continued to get more and more involved with the pro-life movement that included regular participation in prayer vigils, at large events, and recruiting new people from time to time. He was jeered, assaulted, and even taunted all because he wanted to do “what God wants him to do.”

That young man is me and I am not done until we end abortion on the streets of Philadelphia and every major city across the United States and throughout the world.

Remembering Lives Lost and Hearts Broken in Waco, Texas

Pro-Life Waco is sponsoring an ad in the Waco Tribune.  You can find more information on how to be a part of this initiative below.   Thank you to John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco for forwarding information on this project. 

AdRoe Day ad in Waco Trib: 410 and working hard.

WacoWe are now two/thirds the way along the path to 600 households publicly declaring their lament for the tragic Roe v Wade decision imposed on January 22, 1973.

This Pro-Life Waco initiative is unique and important. The only other city in the USA that will have a Roe Day “signature ad” is Reno, Nevada.

Signing up is easy for you and your friends. Just provide your household name the way you want it in the ad and donate $5 – $50 to Pro-Life Waco. Mail to Pro-Life Waco at 4200 Grim Avenue, Waco, TX  76710.
Or you can do this online at www.prolifewaco.comClick on the Support Us button located on the bottom/right of your screen.

You can see and print copies of the flyer/signup form here. 
Ways you can help through our final sign up Day of January 15:

1. Having your household signed on would be a blessing. Wherever you live, you can join with others defending preborn babies, moms and families.

2. Sundays Jan. 3 and 10 and Wednesdays Jan. 6 & 13 are worship days before our January 15 cutoff for adding names. You can print copies of the flyer/form to share with your friends. If some of your friends commit “on the spot,” you can take their checks and forms and return to me at 4200 Grim Ave, Waco 76710. My mail has a drop slot into my home.

3. Forward or share this message to your friends. Hopefully, others will learn about the Roe Ad campaign from multiple sources.

The Roe Day Proclamation part of the ad will look like the picture above.  

 

A Voice Cried Out, “Don’t Kill Your Baby”

Most in the pro-life movement are too young to remember many of our pro-life pioneers who paved the way for future pro-life warriors.  One of these women was Bea Gutherman, a mother of 11 children who was faithfully committed to praying and sidewalk counseling outside the Northeast Women’s Center abortion mill which at that time was located at 9600 Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philly. 

Below is a memory of Bea from another of our pro-life pioneers, Theresa Connolly, one of our lawyers who worked pro bono whenever any of us were arrested (which in the 80’s was frequent).  God bless Bea, Theresa and all who stood up then and who stand up now for God’s precious little ones.

Bea Gutherman
Bea Gutherman

It was early in the 1980’s on a cold, dreary morning in Philadelphia, a young woman was headed for 9600 Roosevelt Boulevard.  She was going down the walkway as Bea, a middle-aged woman made a blood curdling scream: ‘’DON’T KILL YOUR BABY.”

It was horrifying! The small prolife group was shocked at how rude she was to this woman who was about to abort her baby. Yes, shocked!

Someone was incredibly wrong; but it was not Bea.

In 1973 seven dirty old men pronounced the murder of unseen human children to be a woman’s right to abort. *

How were we supposed to behave?  Bea knew.  Bea did it.

Groups formed outside ‘9600’ daily.  They were always polite.  Their weapon was the rosary.  And that weapon worked!

Some mothers left.  Some children lived.

*Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. It struck down many U.S. state and federal abortion laws. – Wikipedia

Pro-Life Witness Saves Another Baby!

Below is from an email we received from Mary Paris, one of our committed sidewalk servants at the Planned Parenthood in Warminster.  While we are in the midst of some serious challenges this year, babies are still being saved from abortion.  Thank you Mike, Pat, Ellen and Mary for your faithfulness each week at this killing facility.  And thanks to all  who are so faithful in your commitment to be a Voice for Life!

IMG_2063

I thought I should pass on to you since you are so wonderful at keeping vigils going down at Warminster PP that on Friday a young girl (senior in high school) and her mother left PP and decided to save the baby.  Pat Stanton and Mike McMonagle had spoken out to them earlier before they went in and it was after they were gone that the two stopped near me and asked for resources.  I directed them to the parking lot where I park and Ellen Doherty (from A Baby’s Breath) and I spoke with them.  The girl’s face was beaming.  The mom was ashamed that they had even gone there in the first place.  Interesting thing is that this is the second time in a couple months where I was getting a little burnt out and was given the nudge to keep up the work.

Thanks for all your encouragement for folks to come out and pray.

Please Join Our Annual Prayer Rally Outside of Planned Parenthood in Warminster, Pennsylvania on January 22nd

Public WitnessIn the past we have held our Pray Rally the same day as the annual March for Life in Washington, DC.  This year we have decided to have this rally on the actual anniversary of the Supreme Court decision declaring abortion lawful throughout the nation.

We will pray for the over 60,000,000 babies killed since this decision.  We will also pray for those who procure, provide or promote the killing of our preborn brothers and sisters.

Prayer is the most important weapon we have to combat the evils in our society; and prayer vigils outside of abortion facilities combine this powerful weapon with our witness to the crimes against humanity taking place in our communities every day.

2021 Rally for Life

Georgia on The Mind of Pro-Lifers

Two senate seats in Georgia were up for grabs during the 2020 Election. There was no clear winner that evening. For Doug Collins and Kelly Loeffler, they know that the nation is watching to see how the senate will play the role under either a Biden or Trump Administration.

Their opponents are looking to tip the scale in favor of gay marriage, abortion, higher taxes, compromising our basic inalienable rights, and even scandalizing our Constitution.

Special Election: Kelly Loeffler vs. Pastor Raphael Warnock.

Even former NFL Coach Tony Dungy questions the motive of Pastor Raphael Warnock when he misinterpreted Matthew 6:24 while claiming the bible justifies abortion. What part of “Thou shall not murder” does the so called “pastor” not understand?

This is to determine who will secede retiring senator Johnny Isakson.

Perdue v Ossoff

David Perdue is the other candidate looking to ensure a pro-life majority in the U.S Senate. He will square up against Jon Ossoff. He failed on election night to break more than 50% to secure re-election.

The runoff election will take place on January 5th. To voters of the state of Georgia, you are asked to show up in person and vote for life, prosperity, law and order, and even to advance God in our country. Help people to register. Make sure you get people to the polls. Mail in ballots are a scam.
