Tom MacDonald, a rapper from Canada, uses his music skills to bring to light a problem in our culture.
We have seen of recent young people begging for safe spaces from ideologies that are not in line with their soo called “views”. I wonder how many of them know the issue at hand even before they were brainwashed by communist and corrupted teacher’s unions that are causing more harm than good.
The rapper’s recent music video takes aim at a group that we see on college campuses that would stop at nothing to vandalize and steal off of a display all because it “hurts their feelings”.
One of the lyrics that jumps out from his song reads:
You think taking guns away will save our kids from the killings But your pro-choice abortion kills way more children
This is how you use your God-given talents. So what are we waiting for?
Calls and emails are needed to be sent to Majority Leader of the Pennsylvania House. Three pro-life bills were put forward from the Health Committee. So far none have come to the full House for a vote.
HB 118 – Dignity for Fetal Remains
HB 1500 – Down Syndrome
HB 904 – Heartbeat Bill
Please call Leader Benninghoff and ask that he “expeditiously schedules votes for each of the 3 pro-life bills”. If possible also send an email too – with “Run All Three Pro-Life Bills NOW”.
The bills are good legislation, and our legislators need to have an opportunity to pass them. Waiting could delay the Senate from taking them up before the Summer Recess.
If this blog can do a highlight of the week, then the valedictorian speech during high school graduation would make the list for all the wrong reasons.
A speech given by Paxton Smith that went viral has gotten many people talking. She argues where Texas has gone wrong after signing into law a heartbeat bill that recently passed. However, her logic and reasoning fell short. She used the platform as an opportunity to promote abortion and birth control. She admitted that she is afraid of bringing a child into the world if she faced an unplanned pregnancy and contraception fails (which does) due to inconvenience. The purpose of a high school valedictorian speech is to reflect on the four years of high school or college. It is not a time for propaganda. Even the board of her now alma mater were not notified about the change in her speech.
Some pro-lifers respond to her speech.
Dr. Monique Ruberu took it to her personal Facebook page to address where she is wrong:
Dear Paxton, You are a strong girl, an intelligent girl, but sadly you have bought the lie sold to so many beautiful women all over the world. You are correct that contraceptives do fail… the only way to 100% avoid pregnancy is to abstain from sex… this will help you to know that the man in your life is not using you for his sexual pleasure… it will leave you strong, confident, with the knowledge that the person you are dating is with you because of your beautiful mind, heart, and soul. If you one day marry this man and you need to abstain because of illness or a complication in pregnancy – you will have 100% confidence that he is not going to cheat on you because he is not with you just to satisfy his sexual desires… your relationship will be based on so much more, awesome conversation, dreams, trust… love and respect… If one day God forbid you are raped… the people I know who were conceived in rape are the most beautiful, loving, intelligent, life-changing people I know… to say they should have been aborted because of the sins of their father is heartless. The women who choose to give birth and keep their child or allow their child to be adopted typically do so much better than those who choose abortion… they know that although they were harmed, they are not perpetuating that harm upon another innocent person. Life doesn’t end with pregnancy… even if it is unplanned… every life is precious. You can still accomplish every dream, every goal… these moms need support and someone to tell them they are capable… instead you just told your entire class at lake highlands hs that the women are weak and if pregnant they are incapable of accomplishing great things… how many moms go to school, work, provide for their kids…. you negated all of that strength, that resilience, the very essence of being a strong woman… but it’s not your fault because you were fed a lie… so now is your chance… open your eyes… see how awesome life is… see how awesome women are … see that every life is a gift and every person is precious… see that you can choose to stop having sex … and you would have much less to fear…
To My Daughters, Please do not look up to girls like Paxton Smith. She may have the ability to string together emotionally driven words, but if they are not founded in truth it will lead to destruction. I know this so well. When mommy was a senior in high school I made a huge mistake that I will regret for the rest of my life. I believed the very lies that Ms. Smith relayed in her valedictorian speech. When I found out I was pregnant I felt that my dreams, my goals, and my aspirations were being stripped from me. Knowing what I know now, they were simply feelings. Feelings change but truth does not. As an immature teenage girl, I believed the lie that ending the life of my child would restore my dreams, my goals, and my aspirations. After consuming poisonous pills to end the life of my baby, your sibling, that is not what happened. Nothing was restored. It was all a lie. The regret settled in, but I quickly pushed it down to survive. There is nothing natural about taking the life of your own child. I do not care how empowering someone like Ms. Paxton may make it sound. The reality is I had no right to take the life of my innocent child for my own selfish gain. The last thing I would ever want for my beautiful girls is to believe that lie. What makes you a powerful woman is unapologetically being who God created you to be. It’s standing in truth even when the world is trying to convince you to live in lies. I pray Ms. Paxton will someday take her gift of intelligence and use it to protect life, not promote death.
Supporting women and their pregnancy by showering them with help, love, and mercy is pro-woman. That will in essence defeat abortion in our society.
Despite a taste of summer in the air on Saturday, June 5th, 500 pro-lifers gathered for a call to action while mourning the thousands of lives lost to abortion in West Chester, PA a 45-minute drive from Philadelphia.
The day began with Mass at St. Agnes Church near the heart of town. Bishop John McIntyre was celebrant homilist for the Mass for Life. In his homily, he reflected on his visit to the 9/11 memorial in New York and how the 3,000 lives lost there was no different that the daily murder of the unborn in our society today. He reminded everyone that life from womb to tomb is precious and made perfect in the eye of God.
After the celebration of Mass, the pro-lifers peacefully march around town. The first stop was the Planned Parenthood facility.
Following the brief rally and prayer at Planned Parenthood, everyone processed to the courthouse in the middle of town.
The speakers were deep, personal, and cover topics that are affecting the culture of life.
Overall, the day was filled with beauty and love.

If voters from the Keystone State were at the polls during the primary, they may have noticed the first question on whether the governor should have limited executive power. It was common sense. Now one was above the law.
By a 7-point margin (53%-46%), voters said yes to limiting the governor’s power. This came during the advent of the pandemic that took place last year. He closed churches [which should have been opened to encourage people to pray for the end of COVID-19] and businesses, yet he let abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood continue having abortions.
Despites the state’s efforts to pass bills ending the pandemic, Wolf vetoed every measure. That send the message for the people to decide at the polls and the convincing victory showed.
This shows that accountable is still alive in Pennsylvania as 2022 is around the corner.
Pennsylvania is just the first state to do so. Many others are looking to follow suit.
It’s time for We the People to stand up to tyrants like Commie Tommy Wolf and take our states back. Wolf’s legacy lied in his response to the scamdemic that happened and how he radically promoted abortion in the heat of the lockdowns where pro-lifers were not permitted to be peacefully demonstrating outside of abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood.
It is hard to believe that it is a joyous occasion marked with uncertainty let alone hope for the future.
For the pro-life movement in the Greater Philadelphia area, we are proud of our future young leaders who have done so much despite a hectic college schedule to advance the culture of life.
Case in point, the students at Temple University. These young people have done everything from praying outside of abortion facility, tabled next to Planned Parenthood during a college fair to stir some debate, and even helping out at HOPE Pregnancy Center.
We are proud of these young men and women and wish them all of the best in their future endeavors.

Below is information from Ted Meehan concerning several bills moving forward in the Pennsylvania Legislature. Please contact your legislators and ask them to sign on to these bills and resolutions.
Several important bills are progressing through the PA Legislature. You can assist in getting these bills through the Committee process and to the floor by asking your local reps to co-sponsor them.
1) The “Dignity” bill (HB 118) is essentially a Fetal Remains bill, requiring abortion providers and hospitals to dispose of remains of aborted or miscarried babies with the respect due to human beings. No dumping into HazMat bags and dumped.
2) Heartbeat Bill prohibits abortions at the point that a baby’s heartbeat is detected.
3) RESCUE Bill is an acronym for “Reporting Evidence of Sexual Crimes and Underage Exploitation. It would close the loophole that has enabled abortion providers to avoid the mandated reporting of treating girls aged 16 or younger for sexually related issues – STDs, pregnancy, abortion. It is needed because without reports to law enforcement or child protective services, little girls trapped in sex trafficking rings, or victims of rape, or even prostitution – are systematically treated and handed back to the perpetrators of their abuse.
4) John Stanton Memorial Resolution is the long overdue public recognition of the “Father of the Pro-Life Movement in Pennsylvania”. (This has been held up for four years by Brian Sims – the same state rep who was the homosexual activist abusing ladies and young girls who were praying in front of the 12th & Locust abortion mill 2 June’s ago.) That person is running for Lt Gov. But our commitment is to continue to bring it up until it passes.
Unfortunately, at this point, I do not have Bill numbers for all of these. But the Dignity Bill is HB 118. But with the above info, your representative can get the info needed. We want them to sign on as co-sponsors to these bills.
