IMPORTANT Update about the Maryland March for Life

Please see information from Maryland March for Life pertaining to their March for Life scheduled for February 4, 2021 below.  

Maryland MFL

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to create numerous challenges. We would never dream of pausing or canceling the life saving work our coalition engages in each year during the General Assembly Legislative Session. However, we have to recognize the need to adapt to the current situation.

We will not be allowed to host our religious services, youth rally, Lawyer’s Mall Rally, or post-march mixer due to restrictions in place at all of our regular venues. All back-up options have been explored. We intend to host a “Life Chain-like” event on the public sidewalks outside the Miller Senate Building with individuals or family groups spread 6-feet apart. In accord with current Annapolis-specific executive orders, this event will require face coverings for attendees (unless unable due to age or medical conditions). Lastly, with the potential for a shortened legislative session AND the expectation that crucial legislation will be introduced early this year, we are moving the 2021 Maryland March for Life UP to Thursday, February 4, 2021 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Please see the updated Eventbrite for specific times and locations and any updates from now until then. Please also check out our website at mdmarchforlife.com for additional information.

As always, thank you for your support and we look forwarded to hosting you at our newly designed March at its rescheduled date and time.

Thursday, February 4, 2021 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM (EST)
Public Sidewalks Outside Miller Senate Building

Students for Life To Host #StandForLife Weekend To Be Held After March for Life

The following is from Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America.

With the understanding that not everyone will be able to make it to Washington, D.C. this year for the March for Life due to COVID issues, we came up with an alternate plan.

We’re calling it the #Stand4Life Weekend – and it’s happening in 20+ cities across the nation.

This is the largest, united, national activism event ever led by pro-life youth.

The #Stand4Life Weekend will take place January 27th-30th and will include a well-rounded roster of pro-life activism…including participating in the March for Life (either in-person or virtually).

The best part? It’ll all be planned for you!

All you have to do is show up with as many of your pro-life friends as possible.

When you register for only $10, you’ll receive:

  1. A “Pro-Life Generation” Beanie
  2. All materials for activism events
  3. Pro-life events planned by your city’s #Stand4Life Captain

Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Closes 40 Days of Prayer and Repentance with a Life Chain

 

Eighteen pro-life warriors braved the rain, wind and cold yesterday to be present for our Life Chain to end the 40 Days of Prayer and Repentance in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Although there were a few negative responses to our efforts, most who drove past were supportive.

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition thanks all who came out during these 40 Days to pray for and end to abortion at this facility and give witness to the community on the horrors committed here and at other killing centers across the nation. 

Our next event at the Planned Parenthood in Warminster is our monthly First Friday Life Chain which will be held this Friday, November 6th from 9:30 – 10:30 am.  And don’t forget our Walking with Moms in Need this coming Saturday, November 7th at Peace Valley Park.  Click on this link for more information on this event.

Below are some pictures from yesterday’s Life Chain. 

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition is an organization that believes in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception to natural death. We provide financial and material support to area crisis pregnancy care centers that endorse the sanctity of life. To expand our mission, we provide information and education to the community.

To conclude the Fall 202 40 Days for Life Campaign, the Pro-Life Union invites all to the Right to Birth mass and rally on Saturday, October 31st.

Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Dennis Gill at 8AM.

A procession to Planned Parenthood will immediately follow and Clenard Childress will be the main highlight.

Abortion Pill Reversal; Call for Help

The following is from an email sent by Dr. Monique Ruberu sent last evening.

Today I received a text from Dominic who was praying outside PP… he had encountered a woman who was headed in to abort. This mom was crying, so sad but so scared. She was in a very tough situation and Dom needed support. His shift was almost over and he didn’t want to leave the sidewalk empty in case she came out seeking help. 


Thanks be to God Bill showed up to relieve him and continue the prayer for this woman in particular. 


A few minutes ago I received a call from the APR hotline. I called the woman who took an abortion pill at 11 am at 12th and Locust today! 
I asked her if she encountered Dom on the way in and she said “yes”

I told her that Dom and I had been praying for her today and we were so happy she called!

now I ask each of you to pray for this little 9 week baby! Pray that she takes the progesterone on time and that the baby is saved from abortion. 

KNOW that without Dom and Bill covering these hours today this girl likely would never have known that REVERSAL was an option. 

PRAISE GOD !!!! And thank you to all of you who show up and have chosen your hours to be present!!!

Here are the remaining hours for the 1st week!!

Bucks County pro-life residents are encouraged to attend and join in prayer in memory of the children of the womb lost through abortion.  

On Saturday, September 12th, pro-life Americans will honor the memory of the more than 60 million unborn victims of abortion during the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children.

Solemn prayer services will be held simultaneously at gravesites around the country where abortion victims have been buried, as well as at many other memorial sites dedicated in their honor.

We will gather at the Memorial Monument for Aborted Babies (section 3)  Intersection of Ascension Avenue & St Theresa Avenues (across from the Large Blessed Mother Statue).

This nationwide prayer campaign seeks to humanize the victims of abortion by showing that they have not been forgotten, and that we deeply mourn their loss.

August To-Do List

Hard to believe that it is August, and we’re more than half way through the summer.

The 8th month of the year can serve as a time to get in much needed family vacation before school is back in session. Sadly, the pandemic has put everyone’s plans on hold. Some are still unsure due to the unprecedented times.

The good news is Voices for Life has a to-do list throughout the month that can help you channel your Covid-19 frustrations in helping to advance the pro-life message. This list is applicable for your daily pro-life conviction.

  1. See Trump Card

It should come as no surprise that Dinesh D’Sousa, an immigrant of India, is not done defending the core principles of America. For the last eight years, he has been on the New York Times bestseller’s list, been falsely convicted for fraud, and has produced documentaries that have been game changers. His latest project, “Trump Card” is slated to be released on Friday, August 7th. Due to the temporary closing of movie theaters, you can view the documentary on-demand.

He played a pivotal role in exposing Hillary Clinton’s past which helped Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States with “Hillary’s America”.

In addition, his most recent book United States of Socialism, is out now. To make your purchase, visit here.

2. Holy Hour/Mass for Life

Many states have masses back in session (with restrictions). Some of the faithful should be encouraged to host a Holy Hour for an end to abortion. St. Teresa of Calcutta once believed that if every Catholic made a weekly Holy Hour, we would see an end to abortion. So what are you waiting for? Even if you can’t bring one to you church, make one on your accordance.

3. Take part in vigils in your community

Connect with your local pro-life coalition and find out about vigil locations and times. Pray with your family, college, or even church group. Create a sign that advertises free help with contact information.

4. Host a pro-life committee meeting in your church

Gather people in your parish or church and discuss ways you can help get the pro-life message to your community all around with another pivotal election approaching.

5. Donate to pro-life charity

Give anything you have to advance many pro-life groups making a difference. Some groups include: Generation Life, The Culture Project, St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation, Guiding Star, and Susan B Anthony List to name a few.

6. Work for Susan B Anthony List

The Susan B Anthony List is gearing up to help reach out to voters as the 2020 elections are coming very soon. They are hiring in many battleground states. To learn more, visit here.

7. Purchase Stork: Sowing Season

An indie author recently came out with an amazing book that promotes a pro-life message. To order your copy, visit here. It will make an excellent read in your backyard with a cold drink or while you’re catching rays at the beach.

8. Sign up for 40 Days for Life

The 40 Days for Life campaign begins on Wednesday, September 23rd and ends the weekend before the General Election. The spring campaign was interrupted with the pandemic. Now, with many states putting this phenomenon behind, it is time to go all in to save lives, pray for the workers, help moms choose life, and make a difference in your community.

9. Sidewalk Servants

Even though we’re a long way from the next 40 Days for Life campaign, there are babies being murdered every day. Your presence for at least an hour two during the week will make an impact on the abortion industry. Learn more about sidewalk servants here. Consider starting one in your community.

Portland, Oregon Pays Pastor $50,000 after Unlawfully Arresting Him for “Conversing with People” about Abortion and the Gospel in a Park

On June 1, 2019, Mark Mayberry was at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland holding a sign defending the unborn, passing out related tracts, and conversing with people about abortion and the Gospel when a park officer ordered Mayberry to leave.

Below is an report by John Fortmeyer from Christian News Northwest.  It concerns a recent court settlement between the city of Portland and a pastor. This portends continuing attacks on our first amendment rights of free speech and freedom of religion as Christians.  

The city government last fall acknowledged it was wrong last year to ticket and ban from a downtown park a street evangelist for preaching there.

Several weeks ago, the city agreed to pay him $50,000 to settle the matter.

As reported by The Oregonian, Portland City Council on May 27 approved the settlement with Mark Mayberry, a resident of the southwest Oregon town of Riddle. Represented by Salem attorney Ray Hacke, Mayberry had sued the city in federal court for $300,000 in damages, claiming his First Amendment rights were violated.

Mayberry travels throughout the state to share the Gospel and call for an end to abortion. On June 1, 2019, Mayberry was at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland holding a sign defending the unborn, passing out related tracts, and conversing with people about abortion and the Gospel when a park officer ordered Mayberry to leave.

Asserting that he had a constitutionally protected right of free speech, Mayberry refused. The park officer then issued him a citation barring him from coming to the park for 30 days. The city also charged Mayberry with violating an ordinance by refusing to obey the officer’s orders, and also with violating a state harassment statute.

But Mayberry’s lawyers from the Pacific Justice Institute argued his actions didn’t fit the law’s definition of harassment, specifically using insulting or abusive language or acting to provoke a violent response. Mayberry’s peaceful actions were far from that, they said, and they appealed the matter to the city’s auditor’s office.

A city hearings officer ruled the issuance of the citation had indeed violated Mayberry’s free speech rights under both the state and federal constitutions, and Mayberry’s exclusion from the park was then declared invalid.

Randy Stenquist, a liability manager for the city, said Portland has since made changes in its training within the parks and police departments.
