Harry Reid, Former Majority Leader of U.S. Senate, Dead at 82

The nations today received word that Harry Reid, the former Senate majority leader from Nevada, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 82. He came to the political spotlight in the 1970s. Eventually, he would be nominated for the U.S. Senate in 1987 and served there for 30 years until his retirement. He served from 2007 to 2015 as the majority leader.

Unfortunately, he compromised his pro-life beliefs during his span of 3 decades in Congress. Despite supporting the overturn of Roe v Wade, he chickened on the 2015 Late-Term Abortion Ban. In addition to flip-flopping on his views on abortion, he was instrumental in passing Obama’s controversial Affordable Care Act.

May God have mercy on his soul on the millions of Americans he allowed to be murdered through his apathey

Urgent PA Legislative Alert – Please Take Action!

Please see action alert below from Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.  Use the links provided to read the amendment and to contact your state legislators. 

 

Action_Alert-15

The Constitutional Amendment to keep abortion out of the PA Constitution has now been introduced in the state legislature.

Senate Bill 956 would ensure that there is no right to abortion or taxpayer funding of abortion in the PA Constitution.  Read the text of the amendment here. 

Action Item:

It is critically important that we contact our PA state representative and state senator and urge them to support this Constitutional Amendment. You can contact your state lawmakers conveniently online here: 

Background:

The abortion industry has gone to court to try to establish a so-called right to abortion and taxpayer funding of abortion under the PA Constitution. The case is now before the PA Supreme Court. If the abortion industry wins the case, all of our pro-life laws could be wiped out. That would mean taxpayer funding of abortion, no ban on late-term abortion, no parental consent for abortion, no 24-hour waiting period for abortion, no inspection and regulation of abortion facilities. Tragically, it could mean abortions up to the moment of birth in Pennsylvania.

In order to stop this disastrous scenario from occurring, we need a Constitutional Amendment to keep abortion out of the PA Constitution.

Please share this alert with your pro-life friends, family members, and all appropriate lists.

 

SENATOR LEAHY CALLING IT QUITS

For nearly half a century, Senator Leahy, a staunch Catholic In Name Only, has had a high score rating from NARAL. He has time and time again supported abortion expansion, attacked pro-life nominations to the Supreme Court (the most recent was Amy Coney Barrett last year).

He even introduced nine bills to expand abortion.

After half a century, Senator Leahy was out of touch with America with every attempt to expand abortion. We can only hope that he repents of his actions.

BIG WINS IN VIRGINIA’S STATEWIDE ELECTIONS; LIFE, FAMILY, AND FREEDOM PREVAIL

We are recapping the results of the 2021 civic, gubernatorial, and even state elections. For results of the PA Supreme race, see this article for more information.

The motto of the state of Virginia reads, “Sic Semper Tyrannis” meaning “Thus ever unto tyrants”. For the longest time, tyrants have run Virginia, home to eight Presidents of the United States. From McAuliffe to Northam and even senate races that have had no contest let alone the ten-point win by President Joe Biden last year proved that tyranny must stop.

Many analysts and even Vice President Kamal Harris predicted in her own words that this election would, “determine what could happen in 2022, 2024, and so on”. Well, election night 2021 proved that the tyrannical actions of the Biden Administration had to be put to a halt. Glenn Youngkin, despite being behind in many early polls, came out triumphant to replace Ralph Northam by defeating former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe.

Not only was abortion a pivotal issue of the race but also what Terry McAullife said on the trail about entrusting children to the state when it comes to education while pushing critical race theory and parents were not allowed to have a say. The parents have spoken. Life has triumphed over death. It was a miracle. A pro-life majority will also have possession of Virginia house by one seat. On top of it, the race shows that every voice matters when it comes to our three inalienable rights given to us by God.

As we look ahead to 2022, let us remember those God-given rights when he put forth strong men and women of character and morals, no matter what party we affiliate with.

We have just begun. Let us carry this with us in the midterm election year let alone your own state’s races.

PA Pro-Life Judges SWEEP! Thank You to all who Pitched in!

Please see message from Ted Meehan below with information on yesterday’s election in Pennsylvania.  While the results are not yet official,  it looks like all the pro-life judges won.  Thanks to all who worked so hard to get them elected, and to everyone who voted.  

Thank you

God bless each one who worked so hard to elect our Pro-Life Judicial candidates in Pennsylvania!  It appears that we won all four contests. Kevin Brobson for Supreme Court. Megan Sullivan for Superior Court. Stacy Wallace for Commonwealth Court. Drew Crompton for Commonwealth Court. (Crompton leads the next highest candidate by a little over 1,000 votes. Keep praying that he prevails.)Special thanks to all who distributed nearly 20,000 voter guides in Delaware County, AND to all who made phone calls – 20,000 in the final 3 weeks! And who raised money – or donated, or did many other tasks that are so critical to success.Democracy can never be a spectator sport. As Thomas Paine warned us, many years ago, victory is not won by Summer Soldiers and Sunshine Patriots. It goes to those who dig down when it would be easier to surrender! We always get the leaders we deserve.One of the revelations that struck me, during this campaign, is that it seems that Republicans of today run on the same issues that they have always embraced: Limited Government, Lower Taxes, Sanctity of Life, peace through Strength, Strong Families, Religious Liberty, Educational opportunity for all, and traditional values. While our modern Democrat adversaries run on pronouns, global warming, defunding police, critical race theory, and muzzling speech. Nearly all of their issues change every year! Except they will ALWAYS call us “racists” and “fascists”. (Among some less polite names.)Their new controversial ‘ideas’ are divisive and destructive. It seems that we often have to prevail against a headwind of rule changes – and even some rule violations! But it is Our traditional values that unite and shape us as Americans and we are strong enough to persevere and prosper – as long as we sacrifice our time and treasure to preserve the great gifts of Life and Liberty – under God.Thanks to each one!

IMPORTANT UPDATES FOR INAUGURAL PENNSYLVANIA MARCH FOR LIFE IN HARRISBURG

There are two prayer vigils taking place prior to the rally.

Abortion Front and Center in Gubernatorial Campaign

Commentary below is from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.  She is asking for all who live in New Jersey to contact their Assembly Member and their State Senators to vote No on S3030/A4848.  And please get out and vote for  candidate Jack Ciattarelli for Governor of New Jersey!

Ciattarelli Murphy

As expected, NJ Governor Murphy and pro-abortion forces used the news about the Texas law which will protect babies when their hearts begin to beat as a rallying cry to pass the radical, draconian Freedom to Kill Act (S3030/A4848) aka the NJ Reproductive Freedom Act.

This article linked below covers a press event that the Governor held  yesterday.  Despite his protestations to the contrary, this issue is most definitely political as indicated by the headline.

To his credit, Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli responded by pointing out that it is Murphy’s position that is the one that is extreme.

Please contact your State Senator and two Assembly members and let them know you expect them to vote No on S3030/A4848.

Please read the article and educate as many individuals as possible about this issue and the candidates’ positions on it.  Please share it with as many friends and family members as possible.

The Unborn Child Is Protected by Law; Deep In The Heart of Texas

For decades, Texas has lead the way in its efforts to defend the sanctity of human life. On September 1st, the heartbeat bill has gone into effect. Despite a pea from ACLU and Planned Parenthood to the Supreme Court to dstrike down the law, five justices, including Amy Coney-Barrett (about time) has ruled in favor of the law.

The law, signed in the spring time by Governor Greg Abbott, protects the unborn child as early as 6 weeks following conception. It is a time of rejoicing for all pro-lifers. At the same time, we still have much work that needs to be done to cultivate a culture where all life is protected from the moment of conception to natural death.

Kudos to the Republic of Texas for leading the charge and continuing to do so for the unborn.
