ELECTIONS IN LESS THAN TWO MONTHS; MUCH IS AT STAKE

The November mid-term elections are close yet far away. pro-life voters have much to do to ensure pro-life and pro-liberty candidates emerge victorious on election night.

If the scary agenda from the Biden Administration does not concern voters, what will? Their plan was clear all along to promote abortion demand despite Roe’s defeat by the Supreme Court this past summer. The administration and its allies in congress are out of touch with the American people on all levels.

There are many promising candidates that can help ensure a red wave and control both houses which has happened throughout history depending on who occupies the White House. When it happens, Biden is a lame duck heading into a potential re-election bid, despite poor health and low poll numbers.

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, the question looms on who will be Tom Wolf’s successor. Josh Shapiro has had ads left and right on television and even youtube. Doug, where are you? Do you not want to win the race?

Pennsylvania has held the blueprint in the pro-life debate, especially under the leadership of the late Bob Casey Sr who led the commonwealth in the 80s.

Pro-Life bills were passed on the state level, yet were vetoed or not enforced.

If voters can do something now, they can start by educating the community on the horrors of abortion, fetal development, and sharing the stories of those who walked away from the diabolical industry.

Pro-lifers, are you ready to step up your game? Take an active role in securing the pro-life majority now in Pennsylvania and Washington.

Persecution and Praise Report

Dr. Monique Ruberu offers a reflection from this past weekend outside of both abortion facilities in Philadelphia.

This past Saturday once again we showed up and prayed outside of 777 and 12th. At 777 we covered the street and sidewalks with exorcised salt and anointed all the prayer warriors with exorcised oil… 

Heather as usual showed up with her sage but we continued praying for them all. 

I heard from another prayer warrior who said the following : 

“A year ago, I stole an idea from a woman who participated with us Helpers a few times a few years ago.  I bring Holy Water with me and bless the space right in front of the gate at 12th/Locust: three Crosses for Father/Son/Holy Spirit.  The first time that I did it at 777 was this past Spring.  We’d gotten an early dismissal from work, so I went over there to pray.  The guard saw that and came out and smudged the entire area.  The same thing happened again this summer and I blessed the area again.  And the guard came out again.  Or rather, she PLANNED to do so.  I watched through the window as she tried .. and tried .. and tried .. and tried .. and tried to light the sage bundle ..  but it WOULDN’T take, it just wouldn’t stay lit.  Holy Water – 1; Sage Bundle – 0.” Thanks R!!!

At 12th there was a pro choice protest outside the Community Women’s Center. Our faithful prayer warriors continued the vigil outside of 12th and locust while they were there… these protests will come and go… even though they block the doors and act the fool the police may not even step in but God sees everything and He alone will make a way for us. We continue our work because we work for Him.

Blessings and Surprises

Monique Ruberu offered a reflection on her recent experience outside of the Philadelphia Women’s Center on August 27th.

Last Saturday our friends at 777 appletree took a lot of trouble to collect dog feces, transport it in a car and bring it to 777 where they graciously littered it over the sidewalk where we pray. 

So what did we do? We swept it away and continued praying… and then I sprinkled exorcised blessed salt all over the entire street and both sidewalks including the entryway to the abortion center =) God always wins =) 

When we continue to show up with love despite the persecution, despite the anger and upset, God continues to shine through us… Babies continue to have a glimmer of hope for survival.  Their precious lives are honored by someone. We can close our eyes knowing that we tried. 

Pat sent me the message that a few days ago there was a turnaround at 12th and locust – Such a blessing! 

Pray that our continued presence helps to turn the hearts and minds of these moms toward our sweet Jesus. May they feel His love and kindness.

REHUMANZIE FOUNDER KICKS OFF BOOK TOUR; NEEDS HELP

The following is an email from Aimee Murphy, the founder of Rehumanize International. To learn about this pro-human organization, visit here.

I can hardly believe that I leave in less than 36 hours to begin my 90-day, nationwide book tour for my debut solo book, Rehumanize: A Vision to Secure Human Rights for All!  Knowing that “all politics is local,” as part of our ongoing outreach, I’ll be traveling to 40+ cities, giving low/no-cost lectures to community groups, schools, churches, and more to share this all-too-necessary message of human rights for all human beings to integrate this vital ethos and rehumanizing work into your local communities.

My first week has back-to-back-to-back events: Detroit on Tuesday 8/23, then South Bend on Wednesday 8/24, Chicago on Thursday 8/25, Madison (WI) on Friday 8/26, and Omaha on Saturday 8/27. After that, we’ll hit up Denver, Salt Lake City, Helena (MT), Seattle, Reno, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Topeka, and St. Louis. (Stay tuned for more details on those events in the coming weeks, friends!) I hope if you live near any of these cities, you’ll join me for some excellent events where we crack the spine on my book and talk about this vital message of our shared, inherent human dignity—no matter the circumstance!

Help jumpstart my 13,400-mile BOOK TOUR!

Donate Today:

It will be a grueling 3+ months on the road, and I need your help to cover gas, some meals, and some other travel expenses. We still have $3,000 left to raise!

If you’d like to specifically help with gas or groceries to keep us moving and fed healthy meals, you can also donate gift cards for nationwide gas or grocery chains!

Oh, and if you want to meet up along the tour, check out my slated schedule and send me a message: aimee@rehumanizeintl.org.

Thank you so much for following and supporting our work to create a more peaceful world, where every human is respected, valued, and protected. I’m so grateful for your support and friendship.

For peace and life,
