Please join us this week as we pray in particular for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf. The information below was provided by Sandy Slater, President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition.
‘Winning the war against unborn babies and their mothers one soul at a time’
There’s no hiding Governor Tom Wolf’s truly extreme pro-abortion agenda. He has vetoed several good pro-life pieces of legislation. He allowed Planned Parenthood to be open during the COVID-19 shutdown despite prohibiting all elective surgeries – calling the largest abortion business in the state “life-sustaining.”
Now, Governor Wolf wants to send $3 million of our tax dollars directly to Planned Parenthood. Pennsylvania’s pro-life community must work together to stop Governor Wolf’s extreme abortion agenda.
In November 2019, Gov. Wolf vetoed the Downs Syndrome bill after it passed both houses, calling the legislation a “restriction on women and medical professionals and interferes with women’s health care and the crucial decision-making between patients and their physicians.”
Recently, The Pennsylvania state legislature passed the Telemedicine bill after adding an amendment that indirectly regulated abortion-inducing drugs. Gov. Wolf, the most pro-abortion governor in Pennsylvania history claimed that the bill “interferes with women’s health care and the crucial decision-making between patients and their physicians.”
Let us pray. In 2 Timothy 3: 16 the Apostle Paul tells us that All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, and in Isaiah 55: 7, it says, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon”.
Wolf is extremely close to the abortion chain Planned Parenthood, having once been a volunteer. Planned Parenthood spent a record $1.5 million to support his re-election in 2018.
PA Governor Tom Wolf is the focus of the sixth and final week of our Prayer Campaign for Politicians.
Gov. Wolf is one of the most pro-abortion governors in our nation. In July 2015, a Life News article reported he appointed a Planned Parenthood board member as his chief of staff. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that PP pledged $1.5 million dollars to his 2018 reelection campaign.
He has vetoed many pro-life bills since he has taken office. “When Planned Parenthood wants a veto, Governor Tom Wolf gives it to them every time – no matter the impact on the health and well-being of Pennsylvania citizens,” Michael Geer, PA Family Institute
Jesus calls us to pray for our enemies. It’s impossible to obey Jesus’ command regarding our enemies without total dependence on Him and His divine power and grace. Peter tells us that God doesn’t want anyone to perish. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise…but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9
Paul’s epistle to Timothy directs us to pray for leaders in authority. “I urge, then, first of all that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all those in authority.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2a
The prayer for salvation is of primary importance for a soul on the path to hell.
Heavenly Father, we lift up Governor Wolf to you. We pray the Holy Spirit would convict him of his support for abortion and Planned Parenthood. We pray that he would repent of his sins and turn away from his path of evil. May he accept your gift of salvation through your son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen

We invite you to join American Life League president, Judie Brown, to pray the rosary on this page. She will be dedicating it to the conversion of Pennsylvania representative Brian Sims and for the protection of those praying in front of abortion mills.
This week we witnessed blatant and hateful attacks on peaceful protesters in front of a Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood facility. Sims, an elected official, berated a woman for simply praying the rosary. Catholics and Christians are being directly attacked for standing up for babies and their mothers.
Someone, as tormented as Sims, needs as many rosaries as he can get.
