Election Hangover – Stay Involved!!!

It is Monday, November 9th, 6 days since the 2020 election and while the media has reported the Democratic candidate, Joseph Biden, as the new president-elect, the final decision still is being wrestled in the courts as the ballot process is reviewed.

In the meantime, there are other legislature election outcomes which ultimately affect us in a more personal way as to how our local county, district and state representatives answer to their constituents. My initial goal was to post result updates on local elections but as we have readers from everywhere I’m going in another direction and giving you some homework!

How many of us are really familiar with our U.S. House and Senate reps and also our State House and Senate representatives and what districts we are in?  Do we know where their local offices are? How often do we contact these people to offer our yea’s or nay’s as to the bills and laws they initiate or vote for or against?  As this particle election seemed to be fraught with contention and opinions fueled by social media and in many cases selected blurbs of info (on both sides), it is imperative that we do not just sit back for another 3 ½ years and jump in at the end to voice our concerns with strangers on the internet when we haven’t taken the time to actually communicate with the people forming policy.

I live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a nearby suburb of Philadelphia. As part of a pro-life effort, I have actually met with my local Pennsylvania House Representative Todd Polinchock(R) to discuss his stance on pro-life initiatives put before him. So, at election time, he wasn’t just a name on banner by the side of the road (he won!). Also, my U.S. Rep Brian Fitzpatrick (R) won over his Democratic opponent Christine Finello.  I know our readers come from many home bases so I am providing an interactive link so you can track how your particular state 2020 elections went.   I would also suggest getting familiar with your local state websites so you can stay apprised of district changes due to gerrymandering or census changes and read actual bills instead of going on hearsay as to what is or is not included.  You can also contact your local state pro-life or right-to-life websites for further discussions about abortion laws.  In order to bolster our pro-life efforts, we need to ensure that we have the facts and credible information to state our case on behalf of our children who cannot yet speak.

A prime example of this is noted in one of our earlier blog posts concerning New Jersey’s Reproductive Freedom Act.  Obtain factual details directly from the bill, contact your local representatives and share accurate information with contacts who vote in that state. Babies and moms’ lives are at stake if restrictions are lifted.

As it looks like we will continue to be restricted somewhat on the social scene due to Covid concerns,  let us use this time thoughtfully to gather facts, to have our voices heard and make our legislators actually work for their pay instead of just skimming along hoping they don’t have to explain themselves to us, the people who ultimately pay their salaries.

“Get out and vote” was widely publicized the last few weeks.  That’s not good enough.  These aren’t Congeniality contests.  Know who you are voting for inside and out and if you can depend on them to be your voice, just as our babies in the womb are depending on us!

BLACK LIVES MATTER? THEN WHY DOES NEW JERSEY LEGISLATE BLACK GENOCIDE?

Please Join in a Day of Outrage – Wednesday, November 11, 2020 in New Jersey.  Information about these two events is listed below.  And please contact the sponsors of the Reproductive Freedom Act and express your outrage at this bill!  Use your own words when calling or use the sample message below.  

from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life 

We Need your help now to educate and inform the public of this callous abominable bill in the New Jersey legislature that makes New Jersey the Abortion Mecca of the world at the expense of the New Jersey Tax Payer.

You will pay for any abortion at anytime for people from anywhere as long as they come to New Jersey to have the abortion.

New Jersey citizens must pay for the abortion!!! Babies born alive from botched abortion may be killed with impunity.

Abortions will be able to be performed by persons who are not licensed physicians!  Women’s Health???

“Day Of Outrage!” Call For Prayerful Protest

Your help is needed immediately to stop the Reproductive Freedom Act,  the most radical abortion bill ever proposed in this state. If this bill is passed, it will codify into law the extreme anti-life policies practiced in only a handful of nations.

This includes:
·  Babies can be aborted up to the point of birth.
·  Pregnant teenage moms can abort their children without the abortionist
or school officials ever notifying parents.
·  Late-term abortions will be fully paid for by your taxes and your health
insurance.
·  Conscience protections for medical workers will be removed, forcing
pro-life medical workers to assist in the abortion procedure.
·  Non-physicians can perform risky and unsafe abortions on women.
·  Annual funding for Planned Parenthood will be mandated despite
the budgetary process and priorities of future administrations.
Governor Murphy and the current pro-abortion lawmakers want to end
the debate over the right to life in New Jersey once and for all.  Their
solution is simple: abortion at any time, for any reason, without any
restrictions – without end.

For more information on this radical bill, please view NJRTL’s Facebook
live session HERE

What can you do?

First, join us and over a dozen pro-life organizations for a Day of Action on Wednesday, Nov. 11, in a peaceful protest and prayer gathering led by Rev. Clenard Childress of New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair. Please register so we can contact you with updated information this week.

We will meet at the offices of the two senate sponsors:

Wed, Nov. 11, 10 am–12 pm: Sen. Loretta Weinberg and Asw. Valerie
Huttle, 545 Cedar Lane, Teaneck New Jersey

Parking in CVS lot across the street and other adjacent lots

Wed, Nov. 11, 2 pm—4 pm: Sen. Linda Greenstein, 1249 S River Rd #105, Cranbury, NJ

There is ample parking in the office complex. Signs will be provided but you can bring you own signs.

Second, I want to urge you to contact the bill sponsors and other key senators who will decide the fate of babies in the womb.  Please  call your legislator and express your outrage.

·  Sen. Fred Madden: (856) 232-6700
·  Sen. Vin Gopal: (732) 695-3371
·  Sen. Ronald Rice: (973) 371-5665

·  Sen. Lagana: (201) 576-9199
·  Sen. Addiego: (609) 654-1498
·  Sen. Nilsa Cruz Perez: (856) 541-1251

Hello, my name is __________. I am calling about The Reproductive Freedom Act. This is the most dangerous and radical abortion bill ever proposed in our state. It violates conscience protections, puts women at risk in late-term abortions and abortions performed by non-physicians, and prohibits any protections for babies in the womb – even up to birth. I urge  Senator/Assembly ___________  to vote NO. Can we count on him/her to help protect women and children from this unsafe law? 

The bill is most likely scheduled to be heard in committee within weeks.

You can also send a prewritten message to your three legislators from NJRTL’s legislative action center HERE

 

Have You Heard This Lately? “You can’t be pro-life if you don’t support gun control…immigration reform…regulations combatting climate change, etc.”

The following article was forwarded to Voices for Life from Lauren Merz of Life Site News.

The list goes on and on as to the issues used to attempt to redefine what it means to be “pro-life.”

To be sure, the vast majority of the people trying to redefine the pro-life label are hijacking it for nefarious purposes.

How do I know this?

Because they are mostly abortion advocates and their supporters in the media and culture.

And their tactics are aimed at dividing you and me and fracturing the Pro-Life Movement for their own political benefit while thwarting our efforts to protect the innocent in the womb.

Now, this is not to say that some of the people who are trying to associate their own cause with the pro-life label aren’t genuine, sincere, and well-intentioned…

But let’s be clear – you cannot call yourself “pro-life” if you do not value human life at its earliest, most vulnerable stage. And, it’s important to keep in mind the goal of the Pro-Life Movement is to end abortion.

This is why, to call ourselves “pro-life,” we must prioritize changing our culture into one that values and defends life in the womb and where abortion is completely unthinkable.

There should be no debate – and no compromise permissible – when it comes to the brutal murder of 2,363 babies in the United States each day.

Being “pro-life” also means to be completely against the intentional killing of a preborn child, for any reason, at any stage of fetal development. Period.

We cannot support the killing of children in the small percentages of cases where they were conceived in rape or incest.

We cannot support the killing of children when a mother’s life is in danger. It may be necessary to deliver a baby early – sometimes too early for him to survive – but everything is done to preserve BOTH lives, rather than intentionally kill that innocent child.

We cannot support the killing of children because of a disability…or because of a fatal prenatal diagnosis…or because of their race, gender, or economic status…

Abortion is ALWAYS an unjust act that takes the life of an innocent child.

The victims of abortion are real human beings, who are being starved, dismembered, decapitated, crushed, lethally injected, and ripped apart by suction in the womb.

The leading cause of death around the world today is abortion. These deaths are entirely preventable.

Now more than ever, we need people to understand that to be pro-life is to be against abortion – no matter the circumstance.

This is a tragedy that is almost unparalleled in human history and an atrocity that is carried out every day in our own communities and neighborhoods.

The preborn deserve their own social and political movement to end the injustice against them.

Attempting to redefine “pro-life” to achieve political ends is a betrayal of the innocent human person the Pro-Life Movement exists to defend.

That is why I am so thankful for you and your commitment to sharing these truths, and for fighting alongside us to protect the innocent preborn.

Together, we are building a world where EVERY preborn child is protected and loved.

For life,

Lauren Merz
VP of Strategic Partnerships

You Must Play Your Roll: Defend The Little Ones With Your Vote

What kind of destiny should we expect when we endorse the slaughter of the innocent which so clearly Democrats profoundly endorse? How could I not support the most pro-life president ever and prayerfully pursue to stop the slaughter of the innocent.

The following article by Rev. Clenard Childress, founder of Black Genocide, was forwarded via email. Please read his message and view the newest technology (embryoscopy) below of a six-week old baby in utero. You can see the heart beating and movement in this tiny unborn baby. Please share Rev. Childress’ message to remind others the reality of what’s at stake in this election.

Greetings Saints and Supporters,

The technological accomplishments of CBR Center For Biological Reform are incredible. The greatest social activist of this modern era, The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King stated, “An injustice done to anyone anywhere is an injustice done to everyone everywhere.”

“In a real sense all life is inter-related. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be…This is the inter-related structure of reality.”  “The Negro cannot win if he chooses to sacrifice his children for immediate comfort and safety.”

What is done to these human beings effects you directly not only according to Dr. King but the scripture well before Dr. Martin Luther King teaches. Deuteronomy 21 teaches the elders who are closest to the offence of shedding of innocent blood must declare they have not done it and they know nothing about it. Despite that there must still be a sacrifice of significance be made so the curse of the shedding of innocent blood would not be upon them. The sacrifice was not necessary if you caught the person guilty which the scripture then teaches that the shedding of their blood (death) would remove the curse.  The Good News translation states “But suppose you deliberately murder your enemy in cold blood and then escape to one of those cities for protection (NYC). In that case, the leaders of your own town are to send for you and hand you over to the relative responsible for taking revenge for the murder, so that you may be put to death”. Deuteronomy 19 11-12. Thank God for Jesus who now forgives our sins of Abortion directly or indirectly!

“Whatever effects one directly (the person or human being in the womb) affects all indirectly”. Abortion affects us all! Jesus said it like this, “In so much as you have done it to the least of these (person in the womb) you have done it unto me”, Mathew 25:40. Always remember, Genesis teaches us that after the shedding of innocent blood eventually God shows up to ask the question, “where is thy brother?”  “All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny” What kind of destiny should we expect when we endorse the slaughter of the innocent which so clearly Democrats profoundly endorse? How could I not support the most pro-life president ever and prayerfully pursue to stop the slaughter of the innocent. Never a clearer choice for people of conscience. As Dr. King said, “On some positions, cowardice asks the question, is it expedient? And then expedience comes along and asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? Conscience asks the question, is it right? There comes a time when one must take the position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right.” Vote then has to be for Donald John Trump for the sake of these little ones. Please help us achieve “viral” status for these important messages. Post and encourage reposting:

Students for Life Host Rally at Senator Casey’s Office

As the nation will witness history to be made early next week, Students for Life have made stops in ten different cities urging senators to vote yes to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat.

Fifteen students from across the nation, led by PA coordinator Liana Hollendonner, held a peaceful rally outside of Senator Bob Casey’s Center City office, urging for his vote on the right side of history.

Unfortunately, it is likely that Casey will not carry out his father legacy as he has done since being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006.

Following the mini rally, the students chalk up messages in support of Amy Coney-Barrett. However, they were met with some threats by a security guard. After conferring with Cicil Affairs, the students were permitted to chalk on the public sidewalk.

Heather Heidelbaugh, Pro-Life Republican Candidate for PA Attorney General

Below is an important message from Ted Meehan regarding the upcoming Presidential election on November 3rd. 

Friends,

It is October! We are in Election crunch time. 

Great news is that both President Trump and Heather Heidelbaugh are surging! 

Polls show both within margin of error – with higher enthusiasm rates. The election will be won here. 

Everyone, please try to take one practical action each day to advance the Cause of Life – by promoting the candidacies of President Trump and Heather Heidelbaugh.  If other good candidates are running in your areas, certainly include them in your efforts. But Trump & Heidelbaugh need to be on every list, every flyer, every email, and every phone call.  See attached flyer below. 

Also, pray – and ask others to pray – for the swift confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. 

God bless you!

Ted Meehan

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” (Edmund Burke)

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.

To register for the Pro-Life Generation PA Roundtable with Drew Murrayjust click here.

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!

Wanna Get Involved in Public Policy? Two Opportunities To Do So

The Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia is launching an exciting outreach in the effort to gear up for a post-Roe America. The following exerpt is from Joe Garecht.

In many ways, the end of legalized abortion in our country is closer than ever before. It is critical that we engage on every front of this battle with thoughtful, coordinated and effective advocacy for the unborn.

Would you consider joining our newly formed Pro-Life Action Team? Led by Joe Garecht and the PLU Public Affairs committee, the goal of this group is to concentrate citizen advocacy for the pro life cause in the spheres of politics and the media.

Commitment will be a specific action item once every other month – typically contacting a legislator via phone or email, or sending a comment/op ed to local media outlets – and occasional meetings, no more than twice per year.

Our voices are powerful! We have heard from state legislators that they felt compelled to act on bills in front of their committee after receiving as few as 12 emails or phone calls from constituents. When we organize and combine our advocacy efforts we improve the chance for lasting change in our community on behalf of the unborn.

Please send your name, email and phone number to Tom Stevens with the subject Pro-Life Action Team to mail@prolifeunion.org and let us know we can add you to the Pro-Life Action Team!

In addition, Students for Life of America have an opportunity to give you the knowledge and tools to engage in public policy.

While COVID-19 is affecting the pro-life movement’s ability to train grassroots activists of all ages, Students for Life is now able to bring our pro-life trainings from campuses right into your home.  Enroll in pro-life “majors” in each pillar of pro-life activism.

Not a student?  No problem!  Continuing your education is important to us and there is no age limit on being an effective pro-life advocate. 

How Does It Work?
