FALL 2022 40 DAYS FOR LIFE PREVIEW: PLANNED PARENTHOOD CENTER CITY

The Fall 2022 40 Days for Life Campaign begins on Wednesday, September 28th. Here’s a preview of the campaigns in the Greater Philadelphia Area

In the heart of Philadelphia, the second biggest murder mill is there. The place has been defended by disgraced State Rep. Brian Sims, who has not apologized to the girls who were doxed by him in a live video. He was never to be seen during and after the Stand Against Bullying Rally when people watched in dismay and disgust the way he harassed women who stood against Planned Parenthood. 4,000 lives have been lost at the facility on a yearly basis.

The good news is there’s a Community Women’s Center across the street that offers healthy alternatives to abortion. They have build countless relationships with moms who went from abortion minded to choosing life for their child.

Pro-Lifers in Greater Philly area can help in saving lives with their prayers and support.

The campaign will run from September 28th to Saturday November 5th. The hours are 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Saturday. Visit here to sign up today. Bring your own materials.

Learn what to do or say when on the sidewalk here.

Remember to pray for the conversion of the following workers and volunteers:

Dr. Lee Anthony Tripp

Dr. Joel Lebed

Jonathan Lovitz

Anna Smith

Dr. Lin-Fan Wang

Alhambra Frarey

Aishat Olatunde

Angie Ortiz 

Bobbie Trotenberg

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.

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. 

SEX STRIKE? MORE LIKE A RETURN TO PURE LOVE. THANKS, ABORTION ACTIVISTS

“Sexuality affects all aspects of the human person in the unity of his body and soul. It especially
concerns affectivity, the capacity to love and to procreate, and in a more general way the aptitude for
forming bonds of communion with others.
” CCC 2332

It has been one week since the Roe v Wade decision was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. No doubt it has sent shockwaves across the country let alone the world.

In the aftermath of the ruling, abortion activists are calling for a “Sex Strike”.

What the abortion activists are calling for is stopping the root cause of abortion. When the sexual revolution came to the scene in the 1960s, it brought about sexual promiscuity and even “no strings attached” casual hookups that left men and women feeling empty. This “no strings attached” approach left men off the hook for the possibility of being a parent. In turn, it opened the door to the root cause of abortion, the misuse of sex.

Sex is a gift from God. Its purpose is to create life between a man and a woman. Unfortunately, it has been misused for one’s gratification. It is hysterical that the pro-abortion activists want to stop hooking up with random men or women.

“It is not weakness to desire love. The weakness is when we steel for less than love.” Crystalina Evert

Let’s welcome this surprising but much-needed challenge to defeat abortion at its core root.

Chastity includes an apprenticeship in self-mastery which is training in human freedom. The
alternative is clear: either man governs his passions and finds peace, or he lets himself be dominated
by them and becomes unhappy. “Man’s dignity, therefore, requires him to act out of conscious and
free choice, as moved and drawn in a personal way from within, and not by blind impulses in himself
or by mere external constraint. Man gains such dignity when ridding himself of all slavery to the
passions, he presses forward to his goal by freely choosing what is good and, by his diligence and
skill, effectively secures for himself the means suited to this end
.” CCC 2339

Thank you, pro-abortion activists!

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

Teenager Makes Viral Response to Miley Cyrus with Message of Adoption

Adoption Cake

By now, many of us are outraged by the stunt pulled by pop and teen idol, Miley Cyrus.

Does she realize that she is part of the problem of how many people are being exposed to the promiscuity in our culture?

Recently, Hannah Rickords, a young woman in her late teens countered Miley’s Facebook sharing her adoption story.

Read below:

Miley,

You teamed up with Planned Parenthood to share a message…

Here’s mine.

20 years ago, my biological mother walked into her Planned Parenthood pregnant and not sure where else to go. Measuring over 20 weeks, she was told they could move forward with termination. When she explained she wasn’t there for that kind of procedure, it was explained to her that was all the only help she could receive there.

My birth mom wrote:

“All I wanted was help. For someone to see me for the terrified young woman I was. I wanted someone to hold my hand and tell me everything was going to be okay. I quickly learned that this was not the place for that kind of reassurance. The woman quietly, but firmly, said she was sorry she couldn’t help me.”

If that day she had chosen abortion as her plan, I would not be here today. Regardless of what argument you could have of when life truly begins, if that day in that Planned Parenthood, a young girl was swayed to terminate, I would not be here.

Miley, what about my healthcare? What about the millions of people that will never see the light of day because “abortion is healthcare?”

As an unborn child, there wasn’t much I could do to contribute to society, but now as a 20-year-old being, I have been able to touch the lives of hundreds through a conference I held and my original music.

I am grateful every single day that my birthmother chose another plan for me.

I am grateful every single day that an adoption is an option.

Take action by sharing her photo on her social media platforms today. Adoption Story
