Pennsylvania Action Alert! Hold State Health Department & Gov Wolf Accountable for Lack of Abortion Center Inspections

Please read the information below from the Pennsylvania Pro-life Federation and contact your State Legislators today!

Take Action
No abortion center inspection reports have been posted on the Pennsylvania Health Department website since early February. Is the Health Department failing to inspect abortion facilities because of the COVID-19 pandemic? Or is the Department lagging woefully behind in posting to its website inspections that have already been completed?
Please call and email your state Representative and state Senator with this urgent message: Please hold the state Health Department and Governor Tom Wolf accountable. Please tell them abortion facilities need to be inspected, and the results need to be posted on the Health Department website.
For background information, please see the National Right to Life article on the situation here 
If you do not know who your state representative and state senator are, or you need contact information, please use this link. 
Thank you for making these important calls and sending these vital emails.

The Room that Shouldn’t Exist

The following is By Bonnie Finnerty, Education Director for the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.

Baby in womb P.O.C. Three little letters.  Do they mean anything to you?

In the eyes of some, that’s all we really are.

Products of Conception.

Did you know that there is a special room at every abortion center called the POC lab?  It’s where abortion workers literally piece back together an aborted child, reassembling his torso, legs, arms, and head to make sure that the entire baby was suctioned from the mother’s uterus.   If every part of the baby is not accounted for, a remaining piece in the mother may cause infection and potentially death.

Former abortion worker turned pro-life activist Abby Johnson says that workers at her clinic would joke that the room was called the Pieces Of Children lab.

How can anyone joke about reassembling a tiny human like a jigsaw puzzle? Or actually do it?

Can they not see the clearly human features?  Can they not see the life that once was? The life that existed just moments earlier but was violently ended by the flip of a switch?

Not if you’ve been schooled in dehumanization.

A special Valentine’s Day prayer for women whose hearts are broken over abortion

The following is from Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.  

I will never forget the time when I was a radio reporter and I decided to do a feature on Valentine’s Day.

I arranged to visit a second-grade class at a local elementary school to record their impressions of the holiday. As I took out my microphone and tape recorder, the children gathered around me at lightning speed. They were eager to give their reflections of Valentine’s Day. In that moment, I just felt surrounded by love.

I remember my own excitement as a grade school student anticipating Valentine’s Day. My mother believed in celebrating to the hilt, so the day was filled with cards, gifts, cake, hors’ d’oeuvres, and even flaming cherries jubilee. Again, growing up, I always felt great love on Valentine’s Day.

It seems to me that the national public policy which permits abortion on demand erases a great deal of love from our lives. That is because it eliminates the children who carefully craft those handmade Valentine’s and whisper “I love you” at times of great grace.

Just think if we were to make a Valentine for every child lost to abortion, and for each woman who grieves a child that abortion has taken. The cards could stretch to the heavens and back.

I believe that every woman who was coerced into abortion knows what she is missing—an irreplaceable child with a boundless capacity to love. How sad that a woman could be driven to surrender the one who would love her the most.

A Virtual Adoption Using Sprout

The Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation is using the Sprout app for a virtual adoption to follow the journey of a pregnancy from conception until birth.  They are now in week 4 of this journey.  This is a great way to show others the humanity of the unborn.  
Watch as the Federation journeys through pregnancy using the amazing app Sprout. Conceived on January 22, our virtual baby will be due in October. Sprout can be a powerful pro-life teaching tool because it uses incredible life-like graphics, even allowing you to hear, feel, and see baby’s heart beat!
4 weeks
Week 4: At the moment of conception, a unique and unrepeatable person comes into existence with its own DNA, making it distinct from mother. In this stage of life, a zygote develops into a small collection of cells and about just a day or two later enters the blastocyst stage. Once implanted in the uterus, this life becomes an embryo and begins to produce hormones that may register on a pregnancy test.

The Leader of the Free World Came to the March for Life

“Young people are the heart of the March for Life. And it’s your generation that is making America the pro-family, pro-life nation.” – President Donald Trump

Pro Woman ProLife

The following is by Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.

The leader of the Free World came to the March for Life—and we as a nation will never be the same.

“For 47 years, Americans of all backgrounds have traveled from across the country to stand for life. And today as President of the United States, I am truly proud to stand with you,” President Trump said last Friday.

Through the power of his words, the President has raised the visibility of the March for Life—and the pro-life cause in general. Truly, there is nothing like the bully pulpit to inspire and engage the American people.

Think What Would have been Lost Without Adoption

November is National Adoption Awareness Month and to celebrate, the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation has been posting stories all month on adoption.  Below is one from Maria Gallagher, Legislative/PAC Director of the Federation on Wendy’s founder, Dave Thomas.

by Maria Gallagher

My co-worker surprised me one day by asking, “Did you see what’s on your cup?”

I turned the red paper cup around and looked at the wording imprinted on it. It stated, “Face it. Without adoption, Wendy’s wouldn’t be here.”

I knew it to be true. The founder of Wendy’s, the late Dave Thomas, had been adopted as a child. As an adult, after building a successful nationwide restaurant chain, he became a tireless advocate for adoption.

Think about it. Consider the jobs that would have been lost, the relationships that never would have formed. The people who would not have had Dave Thomas to look up to as a mentor and a business leader, were it not for adoption. Just one child. One story.  One adoption.

This story continues here.


Abortion Forever Severs the Bond Between Mother and Child

Below is commentary by Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation which was published in NRL News Today.  



It was with a mixture of emotions that I noted “Women’s Equality Day” last week.
I am quite thankful for the sacrifices and struggles that our foremothers underwent to ensure that American women live in a free and equal society. I treasure my right to vote, my professional prospects, and equal treatment under the law.
But I cannot help but think that feminist pioneers such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton would be deeply disappointed with the failures that keep women oppressed.
Key among these is legalized abortion. Millions of baby girls are denied the right to life under the Roe v. Wade regime. They are unable to exercise any rights, because they have been robbed of the most fundamental of these—the mere right to exist.  Read more here


Did the Democratic Presidential Candidates Forget About Gosnell?

The following is by Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.  


This is a question I long to ask the current crop of Democratic candidates for President: Have you forgotten Kermit Gosnell?

Gosnell was the infamous West Philadelphia abortionist and mass murderer who is suspected of killing hundreds of newborn babies. Prosecutors could bring criminal charges in only a handful of cases because Gosnell destroyed so many records from his “House of Horrors” abortion facility.

Ultimately, Gosnell was convicted of the murder of three newborn babies and involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of a female patient, Karnamaya Mongar. He is now safely off the streets, serving three consecutive life terms in prison.

I have yet to hear a Democratic Presidential candidate mention his name. He does not fit their false narrative: that abortionists come to the rescue of women (they don’t) and that infanticide is a hoax (tell that to those who witnessed Gosnell’s evil deeds).
