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

 

Roe v Wade at 47. How did we get here? What Can We Do?

It should come as no surprise to many pro-lifers that Roe v Wade is in its 47th year. The question we must ask ourselves is “How did we allow this barbaric decision to make it this far?”

I can give you a myriad of answers, but sadly churches and people of goodwill have been silent. No more. No more apathy. No more silence. It is time to make noise not only from the pulpit but also in the public square.

Yes, there are risks if we cast ourselves out into the deep. However, we have a job that is bigger than ourselves. Far too often I have seen people who have their thinking clouded by radical liberals in the classrooms and college lecture halls. Our job is to be bold in our claim of being pro-life. We cannot stand by and hope people have a change of heart. We need to instruct people where their argument is wrong with love and mercy.

Love and mercy can win over those who have been poorly educated on abortion. It is what we have on our side when it comes to tools for victory and evangelizing to those who live in darkness. That is how we win the debate. Members of Congress or the state office will not help us win. Sure, they may campaign on promises, yet we have seen many not showing a backbone when it comes to defunding Planned Parenthood or even preventing radical abortion laws from ever being law. Abby Johnson reminds us that this debate will be won outside of abortion facilities, college campuses, and even our own homes.

47 years of Roe v Wade has brought nothing but sorrow, agony, and emptiness to our country. I believe that our country is in need of an awakening. I believe a spiritual revival is happening all across the land. Our job has not been an easy one. The abortion lobby may have money, but pro-lifers don’t need a full bank account to combat the diabolic industry. Rather, we have an arsenal of people who are using their talents for something bigger than you and me. These 47 years have only brought a shift in the nation’s attitude on abortion. A majority of America is now pro-life, many of them are young (1/3 of my peers are missing because of his heinous, cold, calculous decision). We have God who has guided many to win many victories for the cause from cradle pro-lifers to former abortion workers.

The question remains: Are you willing to stop another million Americans from being murder due to a false agenda? 61 million Americans, black, white, Latino, Asian, and even mixed were silenced to help women get ahead in life like Michelle Williams and other celebrities. We must be pro-active and step out of our comfort zones. We may think that conveying the message on a digital medium can win everybody. However, as many apologists prove, your “presence” will make a difference to others.

Are you ready to step up to the plate and out of your digital comfort zone?

Going to the March for Life? Staying in D.C. for the Weekend? Here are some events before and after and things you can do.

In a previous post, I shared about things to do if in D.C. for the weekend.

Recently, I discovered events from many pro-life groups national and local. One group is Priests for Life who will have events planned in D.C. and on the West Coast to coincide with Walk for Life in San Francisco.

Here is a list of additional events happening after the March, if you plan to stay for the night or make a weekend out of the largest peaceful demonstration of the country.

  1. Vigil for Life
    1. The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception will have a night-long vigil for life. Here is information on adoration, night prayer, and the opening and closing masses
  2. Nellie Gray Mass
    1. A mass in the extraordinary form will be celebrated by the community of St. Mary, Mother of God Parish in downtown Washington D.C. This mass has been celebrated in memory of Nellie Gray for the last 8 years.
  3. Pro-Life Karaoke
    1. Rehumanize International and Secular Pro-Life will be hosting an epic karaoke party the night of the March for Life.
    2. This event is a fundraiser. $20 suggested donation at the door for adults. $10 suggested donation for students. $1-5 suggested donations to get on the song-request list. There will also be prizes and a raffle to win some limited edition pro-life merch! Light snacks, beer, wine, and soda will be provided! Email herb@rehumanizeintl.org  for further details.
  4. Students for Life of America Summit
    1. Dr. Monique Ruberu and Richara Krajewski are slated to speak at the annual summit in Washington, D.C. which is expecting 2,000 in attendance.

What to bring and pack

It’s January. It will be cold, so be sure to bundle up, wear layers, and keep warm as best as possible.

Also bear in mind that you will encounter some homeless people living on the streets. Here is what to do.

  1. Give them your leftovers
  2. Give them toiletries (toothbrush, hand sanitizers,
  3. Help them get to a homeless shelter
  4. Give them your pocket change
  5. Give them clothes, gloves, a hat, scarf, and even your time.
  6. Give them a gift card to a fast-food chain.

To me, being Pro-Life does not have to limit us to defending the unborn. Rather, we care about all life. That is from the unborn child in the mother’s womb to the elderly person and everyone in between.

Bank of America Protests Re-launch in Waco on January 24th

The post below is from John Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco.  If you live in or around Waco, Texas, we encourage you to attend these peaceful protests beginning again this coming Friday, January 24th.  

BOA

Monthly joy-filled BOA protests will resume this Friday, January 24 from 11 AM to 12:30 PM. Why? Bank of America is a Planned Parenthood supporter/enabler. BOA should pay a price for this. And the Central Texas business community should be on notice that acting as a Planned Parenthood supporter/enabler is a very bad idea.

BOA supports Planned Parenthood through matching donations of its employees and management dollar for dollar. Bank of America has also provided financial support for Planned Parenthood fundraising events. We will encourage BOA customers to complain to bank managers and to close their accounts and bank elsewhere. The BOA branch at the corner of Valley Mills and Lake Air is very much in the public eye—a great opportunity for life defenders.

For this inaugural protest, PLW will provide lunch and fellowship after the outreach at the world-famous Uncle Dan’s BBQ Restaurant just across the street from BOA.

WHERE TO PARK: Nearby Emerson Drive is A-OK. When you turn off Valley Mills Drive onto Lake Air Drive, on your left you will see Kentucky Fried Chicken and then Uncle Dan’s BBQ. Take a left on Emerson Drive and park along the street. Also, you could try parking in the lot of a nearby business (probably not BOA).

Can’t Make the March for Life? Here’s what you can do instead

It’s March for Life week. It is predicted that it will be the biggest rally in its history with marchers from 500,000 to possibly close to 800,000 from all across the United States. In addition to the March for Life in DC, this Saturday is also the Walk for Life in San Francisco.

Now, many of us are asking, “What if I can’t go to the March for Life?” That is okay. Here are some ideas of what you can do this Friday.

  1. Treat it like a Friday in Lent
    1. Abstain from meat
    2. Fast from sugar and cream and drink your coffee black
    3. Don’t butter your toast or drown your fries in ketchup. Eat them plain
    4. Limit your screen time if necessary
  2. Attend a Holy Hour near you
    1. Can you not watch for one hour
    2. Offer it up for those involved with the pro-life movement
    3. Go to confession
  3. Pray your rosary (this should be done every day)
    1. Offer it up for an end to abortion
    2. Pray for the conversion of those who are pro-choice among your family members and friends
  4. Offer a Divine Mercy Chaplet for the conversion of those involved with abortion.
  5. Pray in front of an abortion facility near you.
    1. Take material with you and offer it to women going into the places that offer counterfeit healthcare.
  6. Attend a local event commemorating the lives lost.
  7. Engage in social media fests
    1. Tweet/Retweet about the March or why you are pro-life (be aware of hashtags to use).
    2. Share some of your past March for Life experiences
    3. Post a pro-life quote or phrase on Facebook
    4. Share testimonies of those who once worked in the abortion industry or are post-abortive
  8. Volunteer your time at a crisis pregnancy center
  9. Host a screening of Unplanned or other pro-life theme movies and documents
  10. Write a letter to your elected official
    1. Be sure to remind them of the total number of Americans killed since 1973 as a result of Roe v Wade and how Planned Parenthood is targeting Hispanics and Blacks. Ask them why they continue to be silent.
    2. Share your concern over their record on supporting abortion on demand.

These are just the many things you can do to spread the message of life. Even when the march ends, we are called to March for Life every day, not just every January 22nd. Continue making a difference today and every day in the defense of life.

The Pro-life Counter-Witness to Roe v. Wade

The following is a column from the National Right to Life that was published yesterday. Originally it was written by Archbishop Charles J Chaput a week prior to the 41st anniversary of Roe v Wade. 

Charles J. Chaput is the Archbishop of Philadelphia, and (as anyone who reads NRL News Today already knows) someone from whom I have learned a great deal and quote frequently. The following is excerpted from his weekly column and was written just prior to the 41st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.


January 22 marks the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, legalizing abortion on demand. Thanks to Roe, abortion has killed more than 57 million unborn children [now over 61 million] over the past four decades – the equivalent of roughly one in six living Americans; an entire generation extinguished. But alongside the killing spree, and despite the contempt of abortion activists and unfriendly media, the pro-life counter-witness of millions of Americans has also continued.

The “March for Life” this January, like every January over the past several decades, reminds the nation that killing an unborn child is never a private matter. Abortion is a uniquely intimate form of violence – but violence with bitter public consequences. Catholics eagerly join the March for Life each year because we believe in the God of life and joy; a God who creates every human being with innate dignity and rights, including above all the right to life.

What we really believe, we conform our lives to. And if we don’t at least try to conform our lives to what we claim to believe, then we’re fooling only ourselves, because God cannot be fooled. When we claim to be “Catholic” but then don’t advance our beliefs about the sanctity of the human person as the basis of law, it means one of two things.

We’re either very confused, or we’re very evasive.

All law involves the imposition of somebody’s beliefs about the nature of truth, charity, and justice on everyone else. That’s the reason we have marches, debates, elections, and Congress–to peacefully turn the struggle of ideas and moral convictions into laws that guide our common life. …

There’s a very old Christian expression that goes like this: “Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.”

Are we troubled enough about what’s wrong with the world — the killing of millions of unborn children through abortion; the neglect of the poor, the disabled and the elderly? Do we really have the courage of our convictions to change those things?

The opposite of hope is cynicism, and cynicism also has two daughters. Their names are indifference and cowardice. In renewing ourselves in our faith, what Catholics need to change most urgently is the lack of courage we find in our own personal lives, in our national political life, and sometimes even within the Church herself.

Every year in these weeks between the end of Christmas and the beginning of Lent, I reflect on what the Church means when she talks about the season of “ordinary time.” Ordinary time is where we spend most of our lives — raising families, doing our jobs, helping others, making the daily choices that shape the world around us. Ordinary time is the space God gives us to make a difference with our lives. What we do with that ordinary time — in our personal choices and in our public actions — matters eternally.

As Alexander Solzhenitsyn once wrote [in “The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956”], “the line separating good and evil runs not through states, nor between classes, nor even between political parties, but right through the center of each human heart, and every human heart.” That includes you and me.

Next week hundreds of thousands of good people will march for life in Washington. It’s an opportunity to prove the strength of our convictions; to show to the world what we really believe about the sanctity of human life. I’ll be there. And I ask you to join me.

Blogger’s Note: If you are planning to be in DC next week and decide to stay for the weekend, here is a post that breaks down a few worthwhile events and additional ones hosted by Priest for Life that are in DC and West Coast. 

Remembering Cardinal John O’Connor at 100

On January 15th, 1920, Cardinal John Joseph O’Connor was born in West Philadelphia. He was ordained a priest for the archdiocese on December 15th, 1945.

His legacy as Cardinal of New York can be described as a small fish in a big pond. Meaning that he was in the heart of a liberal state swamped by a concrete jungle from the mid-80s until his death in May 2000.

He has been an outspoken critic when it came to the destruction of human life from conception until natural death. He spoke out against unjust wars and even Rockefeller drug laws. Following a visit to Dachau concentration camp, 10 miles from Munich, Germany, O’Connor felt called and moved to find a religious institute dedicated to the sanctity of all human life to serve pregnant women and the dying. In 1991, that dream became a reality with the establishment of the Sisters of Life.

The Sisters of Life invite you to a Holy Hour/Mass in his memory at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul. Learn more here. 

Join us in Praying the 9 Day Novena for Life

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will once again launch the annual novena for life. This year it runs from January 21st to the 29th.

Voices for Life will have each day of the novena posted to our blog and in turn our social media accounts. You are encouraged to participate and share each reflection of the novena to others.

Girl Scout Expose’

The following is from Deep Roots at Home blogger Alli. She writes a very lengthy expose’ regarding the Girl Scouts and how they are connected with Planned Parenthood especially with Girl Scout Cookie Season upon us. 

Revealing the background of the Girl Scouts is like peeling an onion–each layer exposes a different “truth”. Lots of troops DON’T follow this doctrine. Good for them! But a portion of their Girl Scout cookies sales still gets kicked to corporate, and they very clearly DO follow this doctrine.

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” ~Ephesians 5:11

Sales of Girl Scout cookies are under-way, and it is time to expose what the dollars that are earned from their sales really goes to. Please be aware that some of what is exposed here will shock and disturb you!

I’ve reached out to several women I know and trust who have been involved with or are currently involved with Girl Scouts of the USA. None of these women were aware of the master plan of the WAGGGS and GSUSA agenda.

Unlike Colorado’s new transgender troops, my relatively conservative mountain town has not yet experienced the symptoms of the liberal ideals espoused by the GSUSA. These women were certainly unaware that millions of dollars, including their daughter’s dues and Girl Scout cookies funds, are being paid to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to provide for their comprehensive sexual freedom education, abortion protection, and sexual rights for youth advocacy.

These mothers were not informed that their daughters were enrolled to promote “safe” sexual promiscuity, “guiltless” sexual immorality, “responsibility-free” pregnancy, “inconsequential” sexual exploration and murder of the innocent unborn.

Girl Scouts is an organization that promises to promote honesty and courage, responsibility and charity, yet the soul of the organization is Godless and vile. How can we continue support of an organization run and operated by abortionists and homosexuals intent on programming our youth to accept these atrocities as “rights?” How can we continue to encourage our children to emulate the values these pro-abortion, pro-LGBT adults actively fight to enforce? How can we offer our young girls to a society of role models who have made careers of promoting and fundraising the pro-choice, pro-homosexuality, anti-Christ movement?

As Christians, the truth is simple. We can’t.

We cannot endorse an organization that has such a wretched center. We cannot commend an institution that refuses to protect parental rights and the innocence of youth. We cannot be enticed by the promises of character-building as we clearly see the wolf’s eyes peering out through the feigned fleece.

GIRL SCOUTS USA REVEALED

32 REASONS NOT TO BUY GIRL SCOUT COOKIES

 CECILE RICHARDS of PP

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is signaling its intention to dominate the national sex education agenda:

AFFILIATES OF GIRL SCOUTS OF THE USA

The information presented below is documented and verifiable, but by no means exhaustive. Please follow links referenced within the article and visit the websites listed at the bottom. All information and materials have been provided by the Girl Scouts USA website, affiliate websites, former leaders, former scouts and former scout mothers.

National Collaboration for Youth: Promotes girls to pro-abortion activism and is the driving force behind Spark Action website for youth which supports LGBT rights.

World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS):

MATERIALS ENDORSED BY GIRL SCOUTS

“Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) does not take a position or develop materials on sexuality, birth control or abortion. . .” but they pay upwards of $2 million annually in support of the mission of WAGGGS “to rapidly improve…education and training, especially on sexual and reproductive health and rights” for children.”

Your Voice Your World: (grades 11 & 12) girls are encouraged to explore organizations such as Amnesty International and Population Council, both heavy supporters of Planned Parenthood and abortion rights; advises girls to consider a career as an ACLU lawyer (which supports HHS mandate and abortion rights).

Agent of Change: (grades 4 & 5) asks girls to work with Sierra Club (abortion advocacy and population control group) in a Take Action Project.

aMAZE: (grades 6-8) had at one time referred girls to http://www.astrolog.org, exposing girls to black magik, New Age and pagan theologies. Note: the link has been removed and is no longer there.

Printed Curriculum and their Advocacy Page:

  • Instructs girls to visit “advocacy” websites in search of career opportunities. One of the encouraged sites, idealist.org, lists over 100 positions available in Planned Parenthood. Girls can even view multiple job opportunities that advocate for sex worker rights.
  • GSUSA is a self-proclaimed non-religious organization.
  • Promotes leaders? like Tyra Banks (Victoria Secret Model), Melinda Gates, Venus Williams, etc.
  • Asterisk next to God in the Girl Scout Promise: *Girl Scouts of the USA makes no attempt to define or interpret the word “God” in the Girl Scout Promise. It looks to individual members to establish for themselves the nature of their spiritual beliefs. When making the Girl Scout Promise, individuals may substitute wording appropriate to their own spiritual beliefs for the word “God.”

GSUSA Official Blog: provides links to sexually explicit and pro-abortion content. The blog recently linked to Marie Claire (which has received accolades from Planned Parenthood on its reproductive rights and its work against the Catholic church on contraception and abortion issues), AlterNet, iVillage and in 2012 to Jezebel.com in an article titled “OMFG There’s a New Girls Scouts Cookie” with links to sexually explicit and graphic content as well as abortion mad-libs (Materials prior to 2012: removed after recent “cookie-cotts”).

Media Matters: extremely liberal defender of Planned Parenthood, promoted to girls as the truest source of news information (as shown in the Girl Scouts Cadette workbook).

Stayteen.org: refers all teen pregnancy concerns to Planned Parenthood, endorsed by the Girl Scouts website.

Real Life Real Talk: Planned Parenthood lists partner organizations, including Girls Scouts as outlined in their newsletter and connects the scouts to “Sex, etc. A Website by Teens, for Teens” portraying explicit and graphic sexual content.

Healthy, Happy & Hot: a booklet published by the International Planned Parenthood Federation provided to the GSUSA at the UN conference. The encourages masturbation, “talking dirty”, hetero- and homosexual intercourse, discusses drunk sex and tells HIV-positive youth it is a violation of their rights to inform sexual partners they are infected.

Promotion of literature that mocked the church and recommendations for R-rated movies to 11-13 year old girls have also been removed because of scrutiny like this and protests from parents.

FIGHT OR FLIGHT

“Train up a child the way the way she should go, and when she is older she will not depart from it.”  ~Proverbs 22:6

As Christians and as parents it is our responsibility to ensure that our children are in the world but not of it. We are to protect their innocence and promote Godly values. We need to protect the sanctity of life and the beauty of sexual morality. We need to either take a stand and fight for real purity and honest integrity within the Girl Scouts and its chosen affiliates or we need to remove our devotion and dedication to the Godless entity.

So are your Girl Scout cookie cravings under control? What will you allow to fill your spirit, mind, and body?

They enjoyed the sweet taste of wickedness, letting it melt under their tongue. ~Job 20:12
