Help Provide Napro Technology to Philly!

Dr. Monique Ruberu, Natural Women’s Health

Please read Dr. Monique Ruberu’s urgent request below. She is one of our strongest leaders in our Philadelphia pro-life community.  Please give her request prayerful consideration.  This is yet another avenue we can take to strengthen our pro-life mission. 

Thanks to each of you reading this blog – no matter where you call home –   for all you do to be the voice for our unborn boys and girls.

 I am so blessed to be a Pro-Life Napro Technology Trained Ob/Gyn.  
In addition to treating our typical beautiful patients, the generosity of donors has allowed us to offer free care at Natural Women’s Health to wonderful women who are struggling financially or would otherwise seek care at an abortion facility. 

At Natural Women’s health all women have the opportunity to truly understand the root cause of all their gynecologic issues. 

We treat every Gyn problem effectively without the use of contraceptives in alignment with our faith. We also help couples who are struggling with fertility challenges to conceive without the use of IVF. 

We help mothers to understand the root cause of recurrent miscarriage and attempt to heal it. We address post-partum depression effectively without the use of anti-depressants. 

We are blessed to offer free abortion pill reversal services to any woman who desires to choose life for her child after using an abortion pill. 

All of this is possible because every bit of this work is FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.  Through Him all things are possible. He has provided a way in every situation that we have faced. 

The office has been growing, and I have felt the longing to bring another faithful, caring, God loving provider to our family. 
I did not know how this would be possible considering that I honestly can’t afford to pay myself a proper salary. Every month we focus on paying our employees, paying our rent, paying our bills and serving our patients. 

Then God provided. Sharon is a PA with many years service under her belt. She has two sons that are Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, and she is a faithful daughter to the King, wife and mother.  

Sharon has been moved for a long time to volunteer full time in a pro life setting. This is such a blessing for us because I honestly cannot afford to pay her a salary that I can’t even pay myself.  In order to work in our office and become a Napro Technology Trained Medical Consultant and Fertility Care Practitioner we have to pay for her training and travel expenses for the two sessions of training in Nebraska. 

The total cost of this training is $11760
This cost includes the course, course materials, flights, travel costs, room and board for both sessions of training. Thus far we have raised just over $3000 through a go fund me you may have seen. 

I wish that we had such a lucrative practice that this cost would be nothing, but recently we were informed that we have to vacate our current space by Oct 31, 2021. Our costs of new rent, furniture for the new unfurnished office, renovations and moving is going to cost a significant amount that we hadn’t planned for. 

I was also informed that my religious and medical vaccine exemptions have been denied so I no longer have the ability to perform surgery or admit patients to Holy Redeemer Hospital which further decreases our income. 

I believe that this work is important. I believe that expanding the practice and offering more patients this type of care is such a blessing. I pray that God will move your hearts to be generous and donate to cover the cost of this training for Sharon. 

The blessings from this donation will continue to change hearts and minds of many long after this fundraiser is closed.

God bless you!

GENERATION LIFE CELEBRATES 20 YEARS

For the last twenty years, Generation Life has changed the hearts and minds of half a million young people throughout the greater Philadelphia area and beyond.

On a beautiful fall evening at The Inn at Villanova, 200 supporters gathered to reminisce, celebrate, and hope to equip the organization to continue to fight for love and life.

Kim Savage opened the evening by sharing how far the organization has come since its humble beginnings on the campus of Villanova University, which later grew into sharing chastity in the classrooms, early involvements outside of abortion facilities, and in time beach outreaches.

Those gathered saw a few videos that recapped the last twenty years of the organization while also hearing from past and current staff and volunteers what the organization has done and meant to them.

Fr. Joe Zaleski, the president of the organization, has asked everyone to continue donating to the organization as an anonymous donor wishes to match every money donated to the organization in the near future.

You may do so by donating to the organization here.

Support the Generation Life Golf Outing!

Please see the email below with details on the  Generation Life Golf Outing fundraiser.  While there are many avenues in the pro-life movement:  legislative, prayerful, pregnancy center donations, public rallies, etc., Generation Life’s mission is to get to the root cause of abortion.  Their goal is to educate the younger generations about chastity and try to stop the want or need for an abortion.  They meet young people where they are and proclaim this message.  Gen Life stands outside of abortion centers, speaks at pro-life rallies and most importantly, is a younger voice for the unborn. If you are an armchair golfer, then consider participating through a donation.  If you were impressed by Phil Mickelson’s recent PGA Championship at the age of 50 and want to get back out on the links, then here’s your chance! Either way, please support Generation Life.  It is through their ministry that true change will take place.  

Dear friend,

White Manor Country Club
Monday, June 7 Cocktails & Dinner to Follow  

This day of fun, friendship, and food at a top-ranked golf course makes it possible for us to continue spreading the Pro-Life and Chastity messages throughout the school year – and you can help!

An Award Sponsor sends our speakers to neighboring dioceses like New York, Allentown, Wilmington, and more!

Adoption and then Quadruplets for the Young family

 

young family

A few months ago I published a story of two women who were in need of prayer because they were being pressured into aborting.  One of these mothers is pregnant with quadruplets.

This mom and her husband are the parents of 5 children, four of whom are adopted.  When they found out they would be adding four more children to their family their doctors began urging ‘pregnancy reduction’.  They have resisted the pressures put on them and are looking forward to welcoming all four of their new babies.

Imagine having 9 children under the age of eight!

You can read more about this family by using this link to their Gofundme page And while there, maybe you could make a small contribution to help them out until Jacob can get back to work?  He has taken an unpaid leave of absence from job to help his wife.

The Price is Wrong When You Fundraise for Planned Parenthood

Many of us have grown up to watch the most popular game show The Price is Right. From Bob Barker to Drew Carey, the show has spanned for nearly half a century.

During an airing of a special show, RuPaul, a celebrity known for his drag queen shows came on the show to have the winnings of each prize matched by the producers to go to Planned Parenthood.

This is despicable. Why would they fundraise for an organization that murders innocent children for more than a century in the name of eugenics, population control, and women’s rights and call it “charity”?

Read more about it here

In response to this, I am asking everyone to counter this by participating in the Culture Project’s giving campaign that is tomorrow (5/12) and Wednesday (5/13).

In addition, you are asked to take part in the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia area’s fundraiser that ends on May 15th.
