Donations Needed for Crossroads Pregnancy Center

Pro-lifer warriors are the most generous people on earth despite what the pro-death media, politicians, and Planned Parenthood would have you believe.  Take for example the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition which holds monthly First Friday Life Chains at the Warminster, Pa Planned Parenthood.  Each month we ask people to bring with them items to be given to our local pregnancy help centers and we collect and distribute many baby items that are needed by our centers. 

Below is an appeal from Sandy Slater, President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition with a wish list for Crossroads Pregnancy Care in Quakertown with a request for specific items needed for their clients.  Donations can be brought to our next Life Chain on Friday, August 7th. 

Wish List

Thank the Lord, babies are being born and that means that we have Moms in need.  The list below comes from Crossroads Pregnancy Care in Quakertown.  Your generosity has been tremendous and very much appreciated.  The next Life Chain at Planned Parenthood will be Friday, August 6, 2021.  If you are able to make a sacrificial offering, it would very much appreciated.  As before you are welcome to bring the supplies with you to the vigil from 9:30am to 10:30am.  We thank God that babies are being born.
 
The tide is changing.  But please keep praying.  We are asking for daily rosaries.  Father Gill at the Cathedral said to focus on the darkness and pray the rosary.
 
Thank you and may God bless you.

Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Mourns the Loss of Pro-Life Warrior, Len Cline

Life chain
The following is from Sandy Slater, President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition
 
Len Cline was a member of St. Robert Bellarmine Parish in Warrington, Pennsylvania.  He and his wife Janet had six children and  they were a close and Catholic family. 
 
Len was a pro-life activist for many years.  He was seen at many pro-life events and actively conducted many events himself.  Some of these events were the Run/Walk for Life that was run for several years by the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition in order to raise money for the support of women and their unborn child.  He, with his Respect Life group at his parish had a bus that took parishioners to the March for Life in Washington, DC every year.  To coordinate a March for Life trip is time consuming and strict on record-keeping.  But to Len the task may have been easier as he was also the treasurer for the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition for several years.  All in all Len served as treasurer for at least 15 years and was a member even before then.
 
Len liked to report the finances to the Bucks County Pro-Life Board because in my view, he was pleased with keeping good records in order that the Coalition would be able to meet the support of the eight area crisis pregnancy centers and homes each month with fixed amounts that were set many years ago.  He was also happy to report having conducted baby bottle and diaper fundraising drives for many years in his parish as well as the annual rose sale–all for the sake of helping the centers and homes save the lives of the unborn.  Len will be sorely missed.
The viewing will be Friday, July 9th at 9:30am, followed by the funeral mass at 11am.  Both will be held at St. Robert Bellarmine Church, in Warrington, PA, 18976.
Donations in Len’s name can be sent to  Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition, P.O. Box 7068, Penndel, PA 19047.

July To-Do List

We’re halfway through the year. It felt like yesterday that we said good riddance to 2020 that will eventually be a livid memory.

Now, that we are slowly but surely coming out of the nerve-wrecking pandemic, it is time to step up your game to defend life in your community.

Here are events and suggestions for July:

  1. First Friday and Saturday devotions
  2. Pray the Patriotic Rosary for the 4th of July holiday
  3. Educate people about the importance of the Declaration of Independence, particularly the first inalienable right.
  4. Make a Holy Hour for Life
  5. Take part in Sidewalk Servants
  6. Learn how to Sidewalk Counsel
  7. Volunteer at a pregnancy resource center
  8. Distribute water, food, and toiletries to the homeless
  9. Host a fundraiser for a homeless shelter, crisis resource center, etc
  10. When on vacation, locate an abortion facility near the destination and pray for an hour while meeting local activists.
  11. Participate in the summer rally near you. Details coming soon.
  12. Join the Sisters of Life in a rosary walk on July 24th. It’ll start at Basilica at 10AM.
  13. Run a maternity drive for mothers in need and pregnancy resource centers.

Overall, your pro-life conviction does not take a vacation. It is 24/7. Be sure to be creative with exercising your pro-life views.

Have a great month of July and a safe summer.

Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Continues First Friday Life Chains at PP in Warminster

IMG_2060

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition invites all pro-lifer prayer warriors to join us for our monthly First Friday Life Chain on Friday, July 2 , 2021 at the Warminster Planned Parenthood at 610 Louis Drive from 9:30 – 10:30 am.  (see parking instructions here). 

We are also asking for those who attend to consider bringing diapers and wipes for Guiding Star Ministries and the Pro-life Union’s new outreach center in the Frankford center of Philly. (see related article here). 

We hope many will join with us to pray for an end to abortion at this facility as well as other facilities in Southeast Pennsylvania and across the country.  Signs will be provided for this event.

Please read the Code of Conduct for our Life Chain below

1 — Be humble but be bold as you stand today against the greatest injustice our nation has ever faced.
2 — In the spirit of Christian love, commit to being peaceful, prayerful, and polite, in word and deed. Any misconduct from passersby should be met with silence, which will convey your inner peace.
3 — Do not respond to motorists. Please stay silent and prayerful and your
response to any situation will be proper. Do not wave or gesture. Do not
frown or smile in response to motorists. Our mission is to pray and stand
against abortion—with the solemnity our mission deserves.
4 — Help others. Watch for mothers (and dads) who need help with children, and assist the elderly with chairs and other needs.
5 — Pick up any trash near you before leaving your area.
6 — Drive carefully, and park legally. Buddy-up, if possible, to minimize
traffic woes. Use crosswalks, and do not hold up traffic. Watch your small
children at all times. During the Chain, stand back from the street and do
not extend your sign over the curb. Give immediate passage to other
pedestrians. Only small children should eat during the LIFE CHAIN.
7 — Thank you for being a strong public witness for Christ and for being an
exemplary citizen in our local area.

West Chester Holds Inuaugral March for Life; Mourns 30 Years of Bloodshed

Despite a taste of summer in the air on Saturday, June 5th, 500 pro-lifers gathered for a call to action while mourning the thousands of lives lost to abortion in West Chester, PA a 45-minute drive from Philadelphia.

The day began with Mass at St. Agnes Church near the heart of town. Bishop John McIntyre was celebrant homilist for the Mass for Life. In his homily, he reflected on his visit to the 9/11 memorial in New York and how the 3,000 lives lost there was no different that the daily murder of the unborn in our society today. He reminded everyone that life from womb to tomb is precious and made perfect in the eye of God.

After the celebration of Mass, the pro-lifers peacefully march around town. The first stop was the Planned Parenthood facility.

Following the brief rally and prayer at Planned Parenthood, everyone processed to the courthouse in the middle of town.

The speakers were deep, personal, and cover topics that are affecting the culture of life.

Overall, the day was filled with beauty and love.

Please see our gallery containing photos from the event here.

CONGRATULATIONS OWLS FOR LIFE CLASS OF 2021

It’s graduation season!

It is hard to believe that it is a joyous occasion marked with uncertainty let alone hope for the future.

For the pro-life movement in the Greater Philadelphia area, we are proud of our future young leaders who have done so much despite a hectic college schedule to advance the culture of life.

Case in point, the students at Temple University. These young people have done everything from praying outside of abortion facility, tabled next to Planned Parenthood during a college fair to stir some debate, and even helping out at HOPE Pregnancy Center.

We are proud of these young men and women and wish them all of the best in their future endeavors.

Thank you, Owls for Life Class of 2021.

We Have Hope, We Have Healing, We Have Love

Do you want to know the beautiful thing about being Pro-Life?

We are fighting for the team that has “science, medicine, embryology, logic, and truth,” on our side.

Alison Centofante, Director of External Affairs for Live Action, empowered all of us at the Philadelphia March For Life by reminding us of the strength of the Pro-Life Movement.

We are blessed as Pro-Lifers to have organizations like Live Action working every day to give us the information we need to be educated warriors for life.

Alison’s unique path to the Pro-Life movement, rooted in Philadelphia, and so much more beautiful encouragement can be found by listening to Alison’s Speech at the Philadelphia March For Life.

2022 National Pro-Life Summit To Be Held on Roe v Wade Anniversary in DC

The following is from Tina Whittington, the Vice President of Students for Life of America.

I need you to SAVE THE DATE for our 2022 National Pro-Life Summit in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, January 22, 2022.

This one-day training event for grassroots pro-life activists of all ages saw a record-breaking crowd, selling out at over 3,400 attendees in January 2020.

As you know, we had to replace the 2021 National Pro-Life Summit with our National #Stand4Life Weekend that we hosted in 18 cities across the country and online with more than 63,000 pro-lifers joining us!

But today, I am thrilled to announce that the National Pro-Life Summit is BACK for 2022 and will be better than ever!

While we’ll be revealing the theme of the 2022 National Summit at a later date, what I can tell you right now is all the benefits of attending, like…

Explore and strengthen your personal calling for Life

Become energized to protect the preborn and their mothers

Learn how to engage in the culture more effectively

Strategize with other pro-life youth and adults from communities across the nation

Meet and hear from dozens of experts in the pro-life movement

More details are to come, but you can sign up here to stay in the loop about all Summit-related announcements and updates.

We will sell out again this year…so, trust me, you’ll want to be among the first to know when registration goes live.

I hope you’ll consider joining me, the rest of the Students for Life team, and 3,000+ of your closest pro-life friends in January!
