Vandalism Results in Pro-Life Rally

A bucolic setting in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Scarecrows and cornfields.  Haystacks and mums. Autumnal trees dotting the highways and byways. And yet violence reared its ugly head here on the grounds of Lady of Guadalupe parish in Doylestown. Forty white crosses which memorialized those lives taken through abortion were defaced or broken on the church grounds on the evening of October 12th.   Local police are investigating the incident but in the meantime the parish and the surrounding pro-life community rallied together this past Saturday, October 19th, for a prayer vigil led by the pastor, Reverend Monsignor Joseph P. Gentili.

The prayer vigil not only provided an opportunity to publicly stand together to support our right to IMG_5767free speech on the abortion issue but also offered prayers for the person(s) who initiated this destruction.   Replacement crosses were provided by the Pro Life Union and the memorial display is now again intact on the parish grounds.  Additional details of this incident can be found at Patch.com

If the perpetrators thought this was going to stop the ardor of the pro-life community, they are sadly mistaken.  We too have a right to speak our minds on the sanctity of life – it is not a one sided argument although at times that is what it feels like.  So as long as parishes like Our Lady of Guadalupe are willing to publicly assert their support for a child’s right to life, we also will be there to be a voice for those who are voiceless.  We cannot bring back the children who have lost the battle of abortion but we can replace those crosses that stand in their memory as many times as need be.

Diamond and Silk Keynote Address at 2019 40th Anniversary Celebrate Life Banquet

Diamond and Silk, social media stars, were keynote speakers at the PA Pro-Life Federation banquet in Harrisburg, PA. Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, reported on their powerful speech about the sanctity of life of unborn babies.

Cable news commentators Diamond & Silk are known for their humorous take on the issues of the day.

But, before a massive crowd at the Celebrate Life Banquet in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the two sisters told the unvarnished truth about the tragedy of abortion.

“Can you imagine if Mommy had aborted us?” asked one sister to the other. Given the dynamic duo’s widespread popularity, it is apparent that a world without Diamond & Silk is unthinkable.”

The women, who are African-American, spoke frequently and forcefully about the impact of abortion on the black community. Indeed, African-American women have a disproportionate number of abortions—one of the nation’s most under-reported tragedies.

“Babies’ lives matter, too!” one of the sisters said to the crowd, which came to support the life-saving work of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, an affiliate of National Right to Life.”

Diamond & Silk decried the move by states such as New York to pass radical laws allowing abortions up to the moment of birth and providing no protections for babies who manage to survive abortions. They also lamented California’s decision to provide free abortion pills to college students. The pair posed this poignant point: Why not provide medication for free for people to live, rather than supply lethal drugs to take innocent lives?

The banquet also included a salute to National Right to Life Director of Outreach Ernie Ohlhoff, who received the 2019 PA Pro-Life Lifetime Achievement Award. Ernie was an engineer who became involved in the pro-life movement in the early 1970s in the Poconos. He eventually became the first president of the board of directors of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation when it was established in 1979.

Planned Parenthood Confirms Plans to Open Abortion Clinic in KCK

Below is a press release from Ron Kelsey, President of Planned Parenthood Exposed.  If you live in or around Kansas City, KS, we encourage you to attend the prayer rally they have planned for October 26th.  Details  are below.  

Planned Parenthood Exposed continues the Stop Planned Parenthood in KCK campaign

 

Stop PP

[KANSAS CITY, KS, Oct 10—] Planned Parenthood Exposed launched a grassroots campaign that resulted in a lease to Planned Parenthood at 1854 Minnesota Ave in KCK being cancelled in Sept, according to the building owner. But Planned Parenthood is not finished in their plans to open in KCK.

Planned Parenthood lobbyist, Rachel Sweet, stated on Oct 2 at the Kansas Special Committee on the Judiciary meeting that Planned Parenthood was excited about exploring options to open a location in Wyandotte County. They plan on offering the full spectrum of care, which presumably includes abortions. This planned KCK location is one result of the recent Kansas Supreme Court ruling that alleged to find a right to abortion in the state constitution.

On Oct 2 Planned Parenthood also announced the opening of a mega-abortion clinic in Illinois, 15 miles from St. Louis. Missouri has strong laws regulating abortion. It appears that the Illinois clinic is Planned Parenthood’s east bookend to Missouri and the planned KCK clinic is the west bookend, in terms of Planned Parenthood’s abortion plans.

Planned Parenthood Exposed is committed to battling the plans for the Planned Parenthood KCK clinic by engaging the residents of Kansas and Missouri to publicly oppose this planned abortion clinic which will conduct its business primarily in the bi-state area. “We stand opposed to Planned Parenthood plans in KCK and its involvement in the business of killing unborn children” said Ron Kelsey, president of Planned Parenthood Exposed.

A prayer rally will be held on Saturday, Oct 26 at 10:00 am on the public sidewalks at 701 N 7th St, Kansas City, KS 66101, in front of the offices of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Ks.

If you would like more information about this prayer rally, please contact Ron Kelsey at  at  ronkelsey10@gmail.com.

Planned Parenthood Exposed is a non-profit corporation dedicated to educating the public about the evils of Planned Parenthood including its business of killing unborn children and its promotion of sexual immorality to youth.

Chelten Church of Hope Hosting Unplanned Movie Sunday, November 3rd

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices.

Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in.

But one day Abby saw something that changed everything, leading her to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.

Join us for this eye-opening film about the abortion industry based on the life-changing true story of Abby Johnson on Sunday, November 3rd. ADMISSION FREE

To Keep America Great: VOTE RED

The following is from pro-life prayer warrior and frequent contributor  to this blog, Barney Byrne.  While Barney shows us many reasons we should vote Red, the main reason for  doing so is because those who are running for president on the democratic side support abortion up to the moment of birth as well as assisted suicide.  They don’t seem to place any value on human life at any stage. And let’s not forget they are the party that took God out of their platform!   

Barney tells us to VOTE RED  to keep America great.  I’m asking everyone not only to VOTE RED, but to pray for a conversion of those in the democratic party, and for all who hold power over us, no matter which party they are affiliated.   Let’s VOTE RED to Keep America Great, but more importantly let’s VOTE RED and PRAY to make America Holy Again!

Make America Holy Again

A recent writer to the Intelligencer wrote that voting Blue is where change begins.  She is so right.

Please vote Blue (Democratic) if you want higher taxes, less jobs, millions of more homeless, a much less secure Country in this world, a declining economy, open borders to allow millions and millions of immigrants to come into our Country so it will go bankrupt paying for all the free  health care and free education the Democrats envision, while all of our Citizens go bankrupt trying to pay for all the Democrats free goodies.

The writer also repeats the tired refrains of the Democrats on election interference and a disconnect with the rule of law.  If she would only open her eyes and ears, she would see and hear that it was Crooked Obama, Hillary Clinton and rogue element of the FBI, CIA, State Dept. and other members of the Washington Swamp that have perpetrated all these false charges against President Trump.

So please , to destroy the Country we know and that is still a beacon to the rest of the World, vote Blue (Democrat ) or to “Keep America Great”, Vote Red (Republican).

Make no mistake, if Blue wins in the 2020 election it will be the end of the Country our forbears have fought and died to provide for us all.  Our Country will become the largest Socialist country in the world and will mirror Venezuela thousands of times over.  Please vote Republican across the board to keep America the Utopia envisioned by our founders and paid for in the blood of it’s Patriots.

Memorial Crosses for Those Lost Through Abortion

 

Memorial Crosses
Picture was taken on Route 413 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Buckingham, Pennsylvania

A special way to remember the children who have lost their lives through the tragedy of abortion is the Memorial Cross display at local churches.

The display consists of  small white crosses and a sign indicating that each cross represents one million abortions in our country since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

We have encountered many positive reactions to the crosses. Women who are mourning the loss of their own children have left flowers at the displays and one young man said that after seeing them, he and his girlfriend changed their minds about aborting their baby.

The Pro-Life Union will deliver the crosses to a church, install and then pick them up. They remain at a church for approximately one month.

Please consider asking your pastor to host the crosses at your church. They are a very powerful image and an education tool for passersby.

You can contact Anne  Hinnegan at the Pro-Life Union  by calling 215-885-8150  to arrange for these crosses to be delivered and placed at your church.  

The Pro-Life Union uses hope and love for families to serve and accompany others by offering education, alternatives, and public witness that eliminates the need for abortion and euthanasia in Greater Philadelphia.

Update on the Pennsylvania Abortion Industry Lawsuit to ‘New York-ize’ Pennsylvania’s Abortion Laws

The following is an update from Mike McMonagle, President of the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania regarding the lawsuit from the Women’s Law Project  on behalf of the abortion industry in Pennsylvania that seeks a declaration from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court stating that a  ‘right to abortion’ now exist in the Pennsylvania Constitution.  (Please read Mike’s column in the attachment below).  

Pennsylvania

from Mike McMonagle:

The Pa. Abortion Industry’s lawsuit that seeks the Pa. Supreme Court to declare that a “right to abortion” now exists in the Pa. Constitution is moving slowly.  The Pa. Commonwealth Court has scheduled a three Judge Panel Hearing on October 10, 2019 in Harrisburg on the petition of Pa. House and Senate Leaders to enter the case.  This intervention is important because attorneys for Gov. Tom Wolf cannot be relied upon to zealously and effectively defend this lawsuit.  Our organization’s attorneys continue to provide crucial assistance to the attorneys hired by the Pa. House and Senate Leaders.

MAMA, WHAT DID YOU DO
WHY DID YOU WANT ME TO DIE

Northeast Philly Pro-Life Coalition to Host a Rosary Rally & Life Chain on Oct 13th

Our Lady with babies

As a midpoint event of the semi-annual 40 Days for Life Campaign in Northeast Philadelphia, a Rosary Rally and Life Chain will be held on Sunday, October 13th at Roosevelt Blvd & Comly Road (closest intersection to Planned Parenthood).

Rosary and LIfe Chain

The Rosary Rally takes place on the anniversary of the sixth apparition of Our Lady to the children at Fatima. 

The purpose of our public witness is in reparation for the offenses committed against Our Lord and His Blessed Mother at this abortion facility.

Rose D’Adamo, one of the coordinators of the Rosary Rally reminds us of what Saint Padre Pio told us, “The Rosary is the ‘weapon’ for these times.”   

A Life Chain at the same location will follow.  Tom Lacy, coordinator for this Life Chain had this to say, “I feel whenever we do a live chain it is extremely positive, effective and uplifting. We show signs showing unborn baby at 1, 3 and 5 months with others holding signs ‘Pray to end abortion’ and ‘Abortion Kills Children’. Whenever you get reaction about 8 out of 10 are usually positive.”

The coordinator for the 40 Days for Life in Northeast Philly, Anita Flynn reminds us that this  global campaign  runs from September 25th thru November 3rd.  At Comly Road the vigil hours are 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday thru Saturday (no Sunday vigil).

She stated, “There were 2,263 abortions performed  at the Planned Parenthood on Comly Road in Northeast Philadelphia in 2018.  That’s why the 40 Days for Life campaign is so important.  Prayers, support and a physical presence could make someone change her mind from having an abortion to learning about other pro-life options.  We thank those who have been standing outside Comly Road for many, many years and welcome anyone who has never participated in a 40 Days vigil before.  Please check out the 40 Days website and if you have any questions at all about the  vigil in Northeast Philadelphia, please contact Anita Flynn 267-456-4582 or aflynn3250@yahoo.com.”

We strongly urge all residents of Northeast Philadelphia to get behind these two events.  This is a great opportunity to show support for the success of the fall campaign for 40 Days for Life.  If we want to end abortion in our city and our country, we need to step up and give public witness.
