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.

Stop Abortion Before It Starts – Community-Based Culture of Life Center Opens in Philadelphia

While we worry (and rightfully so) about what to expect with an extremely pro-abortion Biden/Harris administration, great things are happening in the pro-life movement.  One example is the opening of a community center in the Frankford section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which will offer support to those living in this neighborhood while building a life-affirming presence in the community.  See article from Tom Stevens, below for more information, and please consider helping the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia in their efforts with a donation.

40 Days Call in Philadelphia

Once again we are asking for pro-life warriors in Southeast Pennsylvania to join the 40 Days for Life Campaign in center city Philly.  Below is a message from Ted Meehan looking for  help from us at the Planned Parenthood on Locust Street.  Please pray and consider committing to join this campaign to witness outside this killing center.  Your prayers and presence do help to save lives. 

Center City Philly

Jesus told us that “the Gates of Hell will not prevail against you”. Until a few years ago, I pictured the Gates of Hell coming to attack, and wad comforted that they would not overwhelm me. But in Jesus’ time, the Gates were the protection from invading forces. To understand this is to realize that when Jesus promises that the Gates of Hell will not prevail against us, He is calling us to CONFRONT the Gates of Hell! If we confront Evil, it cannot prevail. Only if we remain in our comfort zone, can the Gates of Hell prevail. So we must get out and confront Evil where it is!

I ask each of you to sign up for at least one hour, on one day during Lent to stand before the Gates of Hell. They cannot prevail against us!

In Philadelphia, at 12th & Locust, or at 8th & Appletree, there is the greatest need for our help. God bless Pat Stanton and Monique Ruberu for sacraficially reaching out to recruit good people – not just for 40 days, but for 320 days! They strive to cover the two most infamous killing centers in Pennsylvania. It would lighten their load – a little bit – if you could witness at one of these two locations. But any witness at any abortion center will be a blessing.

Take a moment now to sign up by going to: https://www.40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/philadelphia/

Ask a fellow pro-life parishioner to join you to pray for 1 hour. You will be blessed, and you may be used by the Holy Spirit to save a life. Your presence is your witness for Life. Those who see you will be changed. They may not realize it, but they will be. 

For those of you who head up a parish group, consider gathering others from your parish to take a full day. 8am to 5pm. 9 hours. 

Despite Bitter Cold, First Save in Philly

The following is from an email blast sent by Dr. Monique Ruberu. Scroll to the end of the blog to know how you can get involved with 40 Days for Life Philly.

What are You Doing this Saturday?

The Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia invites everyone to join them this Saturday (tomorrow)  outside one of the center city abortion mills in Philadelphia.  If you are new to the movement, this Saturday is a good way to learn about praying and giving witness outside of these centers.  

Tom

Feb 13

This Saturday, February 13th, from 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM we want you to come down to the Planned Parenthood at 12th and Locust to join us for “Newby Saturday”.

Praying and witnessing outside of an abortion center can save lives, but it can also be nerve racking. That is why we established “Newby Saturday,”! This event is designed to help new or first-time witnesses develop an effective approach to helping women courageously choose life for their babies!

 

 

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.

Lent 2021 40 Days for Life Preview: Philadelphia Women’s Center

With 40 Days for Life Lent 2021 campaign approaching, it is time to consider sacrificing a few hours of your time to give witness to life. I am not talking about on your computer screen or cell phone. Rather, you being actually present in front of abortion facilities.

For those who were involved with Philadelphia’s Inaugural March for Life, there was a stop in front of a notorious chop shop just steps away from Independence Hall.

Entering its ninth campaign, we hope that many will step up to be present outside of the largest non Planned Parenthood affiliate in the state of Pennsylvania. On an annual basis, 6,500 babies are murdered, five floors above a daycare. 90% of the victims are African American.

The campaign will run from February 17th through March 27th. The hours for this campaign are: Tuesday through Friday 7AM-3PM, Saturday 6AM-3PM. Note: there’s a regular prayer vigil that runs from 6:30AM to 9AM. The facility is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
