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!

Testimony Outside of Planned Parenthood; Mother Turned Away

Below is a reflection and testimony on a save that happened yesterday outside of Planned Parenthood in Center City. My hope is that someone would be inspired to step into the breach to save lives as I do with many of my fellow pro-lifers.

Today was a day filled with so much traffic. I remember people walking by shaking their heads in disgust of my presence outside of an abortion facility that is the epitome of White Supremacy. Even one person (Jacob )that walks the route along locust on his way to work, only to stop to snap a photo of me and send it to his friend Anna from (Philadelphia Women’s Center). 

As I was winding down my two hour coverage, two young women were going in as I offered to them a blessing bag. They declined and went inside. 

A few minutes later, those same girls came out two minutes apart. One of them was crying. I knew that it was my moment as I prayed the flying novena. After concluding the flying novena, the girls came out of the gate. This time, I wasted no time offering them life saving information. They thanked me for sharing and wished me a good day as I watched them walk away from the place. 

If this is not why we are needed outside of places of doom and gloom then I don’t know what is.

And what amazes me is she went from tears of sadness and woe to leaving PP with a hint of hope for her and child 

It also dawned on me that today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation. God’s sense of timing for yet another news worth of praise.

Please attend the closing rally outside of the largest non-Planned Parenthood affiliate in our city and state.

First Friday Life Chain in Warminster & Wish List for our Pregnancy Help Centers

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, March 5 , 2021 at the Warminster Planned Parenthood at 610 Louis Drive.

For the winter months it was decided by our Outreach Committee  to change the time of these monthly Life Chains to 12:00 noon for the winter months. 

We are also asking for those who attend to consider bringing some items for Blessed Margaret Home, Legacy of Life and A Baby’s Breath.  Here is a list of what they need:  diapers, size newborn to size 6; baby wipes, formula (Similac Advance).  Use this link for Legacy of Life’s wish list. 

In order to social distance properly,  we will  stand and pray on both sides of Louis Drive in front of Planned Parenthood. 

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.

Two Brothers Announce Run for 2022 Public Offices

Two brothers in Southeastern Pennsylvania are looking to make a difference in the 2022 election in the Keystone State. Both are doing extraordinary work in the state respectively.

Joe Gale

Joe Gale, 33 currently holds a public office in Montgomery County, challenging the liberal rhetoric day in and day out. Joe overcame some smear campaigns from the GOP Swamp that has attacked his character all because he doesn’t fit the establishment agenda. Joe announced on Monday that he will run for the office of governor for Pennsylvania.

Sean Gale

Sean Gale, the brother of Joe, announced on Monday that he will run for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania. He makes this announcement after learning of the retirement of Pat Toomey. Sean, 30, could potentially become the youngest senator in Congress when it is all set and done.

Both brothers can make a difference. They are willing to stand against the establishment, put the people first, and defend life from womb to tomb. These are the candidates that we must support in every given election if we want results.

A Salute To God’s Advocate Somewhere Around The Throne – Pastor Bruce Rivers

Another pro-life warrior has earned their wings!  Below is a message from Rev. Clenard H. Childress Jr., Director and Founder of  L.E.A.R.N., on the passing of Pastor Bruce Rivers.  I’ve always enjoyed reading his Facebook posts and will miss seeing them. Viewing information for Pastor Rivers is listed below.  Please keep his family in your prayers.  

Above is a picture of my departed friend and co-laborer Pastor Bruce Rivers. Pastor, Husband, Father, Pro-life activist, and Preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am still grieving and pondering his departure. Yes, God has the final say and our heavenly Father has so profoundly let Pastor Rivers and myself know that the future would be changing, and the patterns of engagement and fellowship would not be the same.

Walk For Life San Francisco is a yearly event and unknowingly would be the last time I would fellowship with God’s resounding spokesperson. As those who know him you heard Pastor Rivers before you saw him and that commanding uproarious sound so often brought me great joy to hear. Whether through song or great exhortations in the word you were divinely drawn to Pastor Bruce Rivers and its grossly understated that I will miss him!

There In San Francisco as I have done for nearly 16 years after sharing my heart with Gods chosen vessels, I headed down Market Street to march along with the other marchers. Normally upon reaching the end of the march I and Regina quickly head to the pick-up point for a ride or we decide to walk back to the hotel where we are staying. Regina had to stay in New Jersey due to health issues (where I would join her upon my return home with the same issues). I was walking with a young pro-life activist whose first name is Thai and my newly found protégé would be my transportation back to where I was staying. This time it was different. For The Very First Time I stopped And Stayed At The Finish Line Of The March. Why? I didn’t know at the time. I felt compelled to do so. Soon I would find that God would be sharing a special message he wanted me to share with Pastor Rivers @ the Finish Line, but as it turns out it was more for me and the rest of our fellowship.

As I stood conversing and fellowshipping with the crowd the Holy Spirit repeatedly kept reminding me that I was standing at the finish line. In-between greetings and conversations I suddenly felt Gods presence and at the same time heard the voice of my committed comrade yelling my name. As I turned initially, I heard Pastor Rivers say, “that he was looking for me and that he would not travel this far to come here to San Francisco and not see me”.  As Pastor Bruce said those words God then spoke to me and said, “Tell Pastor Rivers that we may not see each other when we would like to but we will see each other at The Finish Line!

I finally got around to sharing that word. Thank God!  As always Pastor Rivers had the means to tape what I just shared with you. You will also hear him say just before I finally say to him what God said to share, “I got to go home”.   The portion I am referring to is at 29:10  in this link .

No, I had absolutely, positively no inkling that it would be the last time I would hear Pastor Rivers distinct voice and receive a “sugar bear” embrace!

Upon receiving the first text of his condition last Friday there was the request to pray. I had just come from my prayer time and immediately called on the name of the Lord. While walking and praying with my wife the second call let me know my friend had transitioned and I was overtaken with great grief and felt ignored and distant from our Heavenly Father. I sat in the chair some time then God reminded me of the last time we were together and what the Father said to tell him and those with us.  God knew then I would need His word of consolation! Truly on this day I can with all assurance say this, “That the next time I see Pastor Bruce Rivers will be @ The Finish Line and I will be there!” Make it your destiny to greet us there! Jesus makes that possible!

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Lent 2021 Preview: Planned Parenthood (Center City Campaign)

For seven straight years, the 40 Days for Life campaign has been present outside of the largest Planned Parenthood in the heart of Philadelphia.

Their numbers have dropped because of our presence for a while until the lockdown last March, which saw an increase in abortions plus ceasing the campaign early.

The hypocrisy is businesses in PA had to suffer while Planned Parenthood, thanks to their friend Gov. Tom Wolf, profit off a questionable pandemic. At the same time, churches were only to be open for prayer but no masses or services. We got a preview of communism through the Wolf Administration, particularly from his closest ally, Dr. Richard “Rachel” Levine.

This time we will have a full campaign during Lent as it will run from Ash Wednesday (February 17th) to March 27th. The hours are: Monday through Saturday 8AM to 4PM.

To sign up for this campaign, visit here.
