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.

Mother’s Day Rally Asks Why Churches Non-Essential But Abortion Facilities Are

On a beautiful Saturday morning, 40 pro-lifers gathered outside of the Philadelphia Women’s Center for a pre-Mother’s Day rally.

Pat Stanton opened the rally with a prayer that stresses the importance of being created for God and by God for a purpose. He later asked the question as to why would churches be closed yet abortion facilities remain open under a communist governor like Tom Wolf.

The speakers included Marlene Downing of Hope Pregnancy, Katelyn D’Adamo of Generation Life, Fr. Michael Moriarty of Legionnaires of Christ, and Pastor Herb Lusk III.

Marlene stressed the importance of praying for the conversion of not just the mothers but also those that are accessory to the slaughter of innocent blood. She even knew that God has a plan for when the facility will be closed for good. She encouraged everyone to be steadfast and present.

Katelyn, the acting Director of Generation Life, shared how her closest friend was pregnant while attending college. Because of Katelyn being present, her friend chose life and graduated second in her class.

Following Katelyn was Kim Savage. Twenty years ago, Kim became one of the first members of Generation Life. She is now a mother of four. She shared about her adoption story and reflected on what it meant to be a mother.

Pastor Herb of Greater Exodus Church reminded everyone to come from a place to love in order to change hearts. Drawing from the story of Hannah in the Old Testament, prayed for a child and turned out to be one of the greatest prophets, Samuel. She would dedicate him to God.

Fr. Michael Moriarty concluded the rally with how he shared the fact that his mom chose life despite being an alcoholic and dedicated his priesthood to helping the poor in Kensington.

A blessed Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. Thank you for your yes to life. You’re heroes.

“You risk your heart every day to become a mom.” Fr. Mike Schmitz

AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO EXERCISE YOUR PRO-LIFE VIEWS

The following is from Dr. Monique Ruberu that was copied and posted to the blog with her consent. He is asking for help from two moms in the Philly/SJ area who are choosing life through the abortion pill reversal hotline. 

I am in touch with the moms of 2 of my recent abortion reversals..

One lives in Ocean County, NJ. The other lives in downtown Philly

I am looking for a few dedicated people to be a part of these women’s support team…

It would involve volunteering to be a part of a group that is willing to walk with this mom and show her love and support..

It could be as simple as letting her know you are her constant prayer support and sending her letters and cards with supportive words and advice

It could be helping to set up an online baby shower or birthday party for the little one

One person in the group will volunteer to be the lead, making initial contact with the mom, identifying any needs she may have and bringing them back to the group to see how the group can help… if the group doesn’t have the resources in their own circle they will bring the need to me and we will find the help she needs through the larger pro-life community.

It may be finding someone that can help the mom with life skills or resume building… it could be anything… just trying to build a supportive loving PRAYERFUL community around this mom so she knows she is not alone.

Let me know if you would like to be a part of either of these teams and if you are interested in being the lead

** If you feel called to help, please email Dr. Monique Ruberu at roobearoo@hotmail.com

Elections Have Consequences; Vote Your Conscience 2020

ATTENTION PA VOTERS

In an effort to piggyback on a previous post from Ted Meehan, I want to break down some other ideas regarding what to do on June 2nd for the Pennsylvania primary and the 2020 General Election. This is going to be the biggest election since the Civil War era.

Vote in person

By now, many of you have heard about an effort to vote via mail. It’s a scam to lose your votes. Nancy Pelosi and her circle of pedophiles, swamp creatures, and godless communists will stop at nothing to remove President Donald Trump from office.

I can’t understand how people can stand outside to enter a supermarket or even an essential store to not wait in line to exercise their right to vote. Even Joe Gale fought this attempt. Inform your family members, community, and friends to not take part in this scam. VOTE IN PERSON!

The PA primary is Tuesday, June 2nd. The deadline to register for the primary is May 18th. Absentee ballot deadline is May 26th.

Volunteer

This should not only apply to PA voters, but everyone who lives in key states that can play a crucial role in bringing real changes to Washington.

Help those who are running for office. There are candidates for the statehouse and senate along with Congress. You’re looking at 88% of seats up for grabs. Democrats control the House of Representatives. As we have seen in the last two years, they have to regard to the protection of human life at the moment conception until natural death, religious freedom, and the stellar work the current administration has done. The magic number is 218 as the House of Representatives is made up of 435 from all fifty states.

Be sure to visit Susan B Anthony to learn how you can do your part.

BE BOLD

  1. Share about candidates who vow to put God, freedom, and life on the platform of public office. Some candidates, in particular, are: Kathy Barnette, Andy Meehan, and Nick Freitas.
  2. Share pro-life messages on your social media outlets
  3. Take part in Twitter campaigns
  4. Pray in front of abortion facilities
  5. Be willing to engage with dialogue with friends and family regarding the pro-life issue. Remember you have a duty to instruct the ignorant whose mind is blind.
  6. Hold your elected officials accountable in how they vote on all culture of life issues
  7. Recruit new members from your church, college campus, and even those in your Knights of Columbus, parents who take their kids to school, etc. Be sure to train them on the dos and don’ts while figuring out what talents they can bring.
  8. Encourage members of the clergy to be more vocal on pro-life issues.
  9. Write pro-life editorials for major newspapers
  10. Volunteer at pregnancy resource centers
  11. Donate money to pro-life charities

Thursday, April 30th, Hollywood had an all-day Fundraiser on Instagram for Planned Parenthood organized by Hollywood’s most glamorous and fun stars. Headlining names like Jenny Slate, Nikki Glaser, Elizabeth Banks, and The Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead led the star-studded day-long event to save abortion in the middle of the COVID pandemic.

The Hypocrisy of Pro-Abortion Governors

It should come as no surprise that many governors who claim to be Catholic are choosing their self-interest over the faith of others.

Here is  a rundown of every so-called Catholic governor so far

Andrew Cuomo- New York

Cuomo does not need a long introduction, but God knows that he is in the state of mortal sin as he continues to murder life from womb to tomb in the Empire State. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree as his father, Mario, labeled the idea that “I’m Catholic, but” which was backfired by Cardinal John O’Connor. Who dares to play God when it comes to human life?

Gina Raimondo- Rhode Island

She sent a letter to Barth Bracy, the executive director of Rhode Island Right to Life, about keeping abortion facilities open while churches are closed during the pandemic.

Gretchen Whitmer- Michigan

Whitmer is a feminist. A tween from 2018 recently surfaced that shows her wearing a pink hat that reads, “Planned Parenthood makes America Great”. Oh, really? Then why have 61 million Americans been murdered by the largest abortion chain? She even barred purchasing American flags while allowing abortions to happen in her state. Read more here

Tom Wolf- Pennsylvania

Wolf volunteered for Planned Parenthood in his early days. He even is their best friend. Observe

tom wolf PP Escort

What is appalling is, like many of his esteemed colleagues that have turned states progressive, he deemed abortion as “essential service” while many businesses in the commonwealth are suffering. Even with a red house and senate in the Keystone State, Wolf has vetoed pro-life bills, but they will be overridden.

Ralph Northam

Dr. Ralph Northam has been the subject of many news headlines. What is so disconcerting about him is the fact that a former pediatrician who dares to play the inconsistent card when it comes to human life. One example is his viewpoint on infanticide.

Bottom line: elections have consequences and those that have refused to defend the most precious must be voted out.
