VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLE HOSTED BY STUDENTS FOR LIFE OF AMERICA

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, can you join Students for Life Action and Drew Murray for a Pro-Life Generation Roundtable on “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.

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!

ABBY JOHNSON SHARES REALITY OF ABORTION DURING REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION

The recap of the Republican National Convention continues. This time we highlight Abby Johnson.

Abby Johnson is no stranger to pro-lifers and pro-abortion mobs alike. Her biopic came out last year, based on a memoir she wrote on how she led the #WalkAway movement from the abortion industry.

Here’s her full speech from the convention here.

A TALE of TWO NUNS- CONVENTION RECAP

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.

Biden Picks Most Radical Democrat; No Friend to Unborn, Catholic Church, or Law and Order

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.

Anti-Catholic Bigotry

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.

She even claimed during an interview that women would die if abortion was restricted.

Law and Order

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.

Voices for Life Prayer Campaign Week 5 – PA State Rep Brian Sims

simsWe are in our 5th week of our 6-week prayer campaign for elected officials who support ending newly created life through abortion on demand.  Please join us as we pray for our candidate this week Democratic Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims.  Though he is not a marquee national name, in a way he represents all small town, city and state government representatives who have an opportunity to keep progressing through the political ranks – and at each step gathering more power.  If we could change their disdain for our pre-born children early on, we might not have to fight the pro-life battle at every political front later on.

Brian Sims became newsworthy in the Philadelphia area for videotaping himself while he verbally chastised a peaceful witness outside a Planned Parenthood in downtown Philadelphia.  In another incident he continued this irrational and aggressive behavior while a woman with three girls were praying outside the same abortion center, offering a bounty to anyone who could identify them.

He states he will continue to protect women’s rights and is committed to being a better advocate and ally for women’s rights.

Sims needs our prayers not only for his lack of recognition for our preborn children but also for the rage that he is unable to control.  We ask the Lord to bring a sense of peace to this man so that he can hear His message, and so that he can engage in valuable dialogue with those who hold a different point of view from his – that children have a right to live their lives.

Give up your anger, abandon your wrath;

Do not be provoked; it brings only harm.

Those who do evil will be cut off,

But those who wait for the Lord will possess the land.

(Psalm 37, 8-9)

 

Voices for Life Prayer Campaign: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez #onesoulatatime

Voices for Life prayer campaign continues into the 4th week.

AOC

This week please join us in praying for NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Ocasio-Cortez has been the subject of some memes that attack her intelligence. I know because I have neighbors that love using her as a punchline. Here, she is the subject of prayer for her to open her eyes as she supported the murder of 1/3 of her peers. When I did my research on her, it has occurred to me that she is just two months older than me

I chose her for three reasons:

  1. She is originally from Venezuela where socialism is drying the very bone of a once productive country.
  2. She has made a poor metaphor about abortion
    1. Comparing abortion to dog-breeding
  3. She is unapologetically pro-abortion
    1. Population Control
    2. Slams Georgia Lawmakers for Abortion Ban
    3. Force Americans to pay for abortion with taxpaying dollars

Let us pray for Representative Ocasio-Cortez’s:

  • That God sends many Christians across her path to share the Gospel
  • That the light of Christ sets her free from the deceit and darkness of satan
  • That she falls to her knees and surrenders her life to Jesus Christ, her only hope for salvation
  • That the Holy Spirit shows her overwhelming proof that abortion is murder and
  • That she becomes an advocate for mothers and their unborn babies.

Please join me this week in remembering Representative Ocasio-Cortez in your daily prayers.

Now, please join me in prayer.

Fount of Mercy Prayer
Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, we come to You with a contrite heart and with faith for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that You will give her the grace of conversion. O blood and water that gushed forth from the heart of Jesus, as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You. Enlighten this mind that is ensnared in ignorance and sin and darkness. Bring her into the fold of the Holy Catholic Church. Amen.

“Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”  James 1:21

Dear Bishops: Be Lions for Christ

The following is from an email blast sent out by Judie Brown of the American Life League. Please see information on how you can encourage your bishop to be bold and take a stand against public servants who dismiss Catholic teachings while in public office. 

The ongoing hypocrisy of pro-abortion Catholics like Joe Biden continues to boggle the Catholic mind. It is hard for any of us to understand how any thinking human being who claims to be Catholic could be such a voracious supporter of aborting little babies! Yet that is exactly what Biden and his ilk are up to on a daily basis.

On the other hand, we have the American Catholic bishops who are all atwitter with the coronavirus, shutting down churches and encouraging Catholics to use at-home resources including online Mass. Baltimore’s Archbishop Lori told the media: “We do not feel as though we have been forced into doing this by the government. We feel like we’re doing the right thing.”

Yet, when it comes to pro-abortion Catholics like Biden and Pelosi spreading a virus of disdain for preborn babies—a “virus” that surgically kills more than 2,000 individual human beings daily—the bishops only resort to occasional criticism. They have never taken steps as a united body to deny Biden the sacrament of Holy Eucharist.

In fact, the entire cast of characters known as the USCCB has never acted to deny any pro-abortion Catholic public figure the body of Christ!

Somehow it seems easier for bishops to shut the doors of the Church to faithful Catholics than to defend Christ from sacrilege.

We know that Christ’s presence in the Eucharist is real. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that “the Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’” It further explains:

The mode of Christ’s presence under the Eucharistic species is unique. It raises the Eucharist above all the sacraments as “the perfection of the spiritual life and the end to which all the sacraments tend.” In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained.” “This presence is called ‘real’ – by which is not intended to exclude the other types of presence as if they could not be ‘real’ too, but because it is presence in the fullest sense: that is to say, it is a substantial presence by which Christ, God and man, makes himself wholly and entirely present.”

Knowing the truth of these words and knowing the devotion that such a teaching should command, we are speechless to explain why the bishops are silent. It would seem to us that, just like the young boy Saint Tarsicius, our bishops would prefer death over permitting any sacrilege to befall Christ in the Eucharist.

But first, faith must exist. And it must be a faith in the real presence of Christ.

Fr. John Hardon, S.J., a holy priest who brought many to the Church and back to the Church, taught this about the body and blood of Christ in the Eucharist: “Only those who really believe that God became man can even begin to believe in His Real Presence now on earth in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Thus, faith in the Incarnation is the foundation for our faith in the Real Presence. As a result, growth in our faith in the Incarnation is the condition for growth in our faith in the Real Presence.”

Joe Biden has said that “no one is expendable. No life is worth losing,” yet he condones the act of aborting a baby.

The bishops have said, in joint statements and with a single voice, that “abortion ends the life of a child and offends God.” Yet they are silent when it comes to defending Christ from sacrilege.

This dichotomy is a tragedy. We call upon the bishops, and we ask you to do likewise. Let them know that, as ordained men of God, they are obliged to defend the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist in the same way they defend the real presence of the child prior to birth.

Let us remind them, one by one, that “only those who really believe that God became man can even begin to believe in His Real Presence now on earth in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar.”

The Catholic bishops are obliged to teach, not tremble, especially in times like these.

Dear Bishops, be lions for Christ.

Voices for Life Prayer Campaign Week 1 – Governor Andrew Cuomo #onesoulatatime

‘Winning the war against unborn babies and their mothers one soul at a time’

Andrew Cuomo

Today begin’s our 6-week Prayer Campaign for some of our elected officials.  We are asking everyone to join us in praying for the particular politician we post for the whole week.

I’ve chosen Governor Andrew Cuomo this week as to me he is someone who is in desperate need of our prayers. Governor Cuomo is on record as stating he believes in abortion up to and including the moment of birth of a baby, and during the present pandemic, he has ordered nursing homes to take in COVID-19 patients.  He doesn’t seem to value life at either end of the spectrum.

Let us pray for the governor’s conversion :

  • That God sends many Christians across his path to share the Gospel
  • That the light of Christ sets him free from the deceit and darkness of satan
  • That he falls to his knees and surrenders his life to Jesus Christ, his only hope for salvation
  • That the Holy Spirit shows him overwhelming proof that abortion is murder and
  • That he becomes a advocate for mothers and their unborn babies.

Please join me this week in remembering Governor Cuomo in your daily prayers.

“This is what we are all about…conversion. We will continue to reach out to these men and women in love. Hate doesn’t work. Condemnation doesn’t work. Judgment doesn’t work. The mercy of Christ is what WORKS. Please pray with us….You are making a difference.” Abby Johnson, former PP clinic director and founder of ‘And Then There Was None’
