Fall 40 Days for Life Campaign Preview: Philadelphia Women’s Center

6500 lives are murdered every year at the largest non-Planned Parenthood affiliate in Pennsylvania. Abortion. No matter what exists well at Philadelphia Women’s Center, located a few mere blocks from Independence Hall. During recent years, pro-lifers overcame assaults from escorts that were told not to return again, stolen property, bring videotaped by a professor of engineering who covered up sexual assault at Swarthmore University, vandalize signs, and a potty mouth security guard who has a demon inside of her.

Despite everything thrown against the faithful pro-lifers that are out there from Tuesday to Saturday, there have been saves and possibly some that went unreported by the grace of God.

The facility is open from Tuesday to Saturday 7AM to 4PM. Your presence, even for just one hour, is needed. We are yet to witness one of the dedicated workers at this murder center walk away from this place. Please sign up for hours here.

Prayer for Our Nation

God Our Father, giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care.
You are the rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people.
Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of
human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Remind Your people that true happiness is
rooted in seeking and doing Your will.
Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the
culture of death. Lead us into a new millennium of life. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
Amen.

The Flaw of Gay Adoption

Recently a photo of Former Fort Wayne, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg was gone viral of him and his partner Chasten adopting twins.

While we celebrate the fact that the children the born, we pray that these children don’t suffer from damaging psychological repercussions brought about by same-sex couples. One is the children will not have a mom growing up.

Let us remember one thing: These two guys are using this hospital bed photo op to push their political agenda and to “normalize” the perverse idea that men can have babies. Only women can biologically have babies. There is nothing normal about this perverse stunt made by the former presidential candidate.

The Catholic Church has taught that sodomy cannot be blessed. Even the Vatican reinforced this teaching back in March.

The church answers that question on why same-sex couples cannot adopt.

Your Chance to do God’s Work

The following is from an e-mail blast sent by Dr. Monique Ruberu.

Last Saturday Irene who is new to sidewalk counseling (only her 2nd time praying there) came and joined Jim at 12th and Locust. A college-age guy and girl were stunned at the sign.  They complained about the facts written about Margaret Sanger. 

Four male friends showed up. Two held back so I asked what they knew about Margaret Sanger. Never heard of her.

Irene alertly noticed one of the other guys nodding at her points as she explained how bad abortion was so she asked him to speak.

He simply said “I’m adopted. I would have been aborted.”

The six then headed off to some event with no further debate.

You don’t have to speak… all we ask is that you lovingly, prayerfully stand witness and offer resources if possible… 

I promise that if you stand in prayer the Holy Spirit will give you the words needed when the time comes to speak.

Please help us have an unbroken chain of prayer!!! Please help us fill these empty slots.

Abortion Front and Center in Gubernatorial Campaign

Commentary below is from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life.  She is asking for all who live in New Jersey to contact their Assembly Member and their State Senators to vote No on S3030/A4848.  And please get out and vote for  candidate Jack Ciattarelli for Governor of New Jersey!

Ciattarelli Murphy

As expected, NJ Governor Murphy and pro-abortion forces used the news about the Texas law which will protect babies when their hearts begin to beat as a rallying cry to pass the radical, draconian Freedom to Kill Act (S3030/A4848) aka the NJ Reproductive Freedom Act.

This article linked below covers a press event that the Governor held  yesterday.  Despite his protestations to the contrary, this issue is most definitely political as indicated by the headline.

To his credit, Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli responded by pointing out that it is Murphy’s position that is the one that is extreme.

Please contact your State Senator and two Assembly members and let them know you expect them to vote No on S3030/A4848.

Please read the article and educate as many individuals as possible about this issue and the candidates’ positions on it.  Please share it with as many friends and family members as possible.

Join us for 40 Days of Prayer & Repentance Beginning September 22nd

40 Days of Prayer

So, we’re into our 2nd year of the COVID pandemic and people are becoming worn down from the various variants and on-going restrictions.  But we are God’s people, and we persevere through prayer and penance, and our 40 Days of Prayer and Repentance is a good way to keep our perspective, and our focus on the Our Lord.  Why do we repent?  For the crimes we have allowed to take hold in our land, in particular the sin of abortion. 

Prayer is the most powerful weapon we possess to fight against the evils of our world.

We invite everyone to join with us in prayer.  Our Prayer Campaign starts on Wednesday, September 22nd and runs until Sunday, October 31st. We will post a prayer and meditation every day during this time to remind everyone to pray for an end to abortion.

If you live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, please join us for our 40 Days of Prayer and Repentance outside of the Planned Parenthood in Warminster. Contact your church’s Respect Life Committee Chairperson and find out which day your church is scheduled for public prayer. If you don’t have a committee or a 40 Days for Life coordinator, we will be glad to help you. (see flyer at end of this post for more information.)

What will 2022 bring? Only God knows for sure. But I’m certain that if enough people turn to Him in prayer, He will heal our land, our hearts, and our souls, and we will see an end to the many sins of our nation, particularly the sin of abortion.

Please see the flyer below for more information. We ask that you print out and distribute to all your contacts in Bucks County.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

The Irony of “My Body; My Choice” In Era of Mask Mandates and Coercion

Has anyone notice the hypocrisy of the pro-choice crowd since the epiphany of mask mandates? No. Well, we have heard of the statement from pro-choice feminists or clueless abortion advocate that like to pick and choose the science they believe in that they do not want politicians to tell them what to do in the name of body autonomy.

Wait a second, this same crowd that has for decades told politicians that they want body autonomy when it came to the abortion debate. In turn, taxpayers are forced to pay the notorious abortion industry millions if not billions of dollars to promote abortion, no matter what. Only this time they have abandoned their battle cry to coerce people in getting the controversial vaccine and wearing a mask indoors.

Have they forgotten the fact that both masks and vaccines were all trials in finding ways to prevent the disease?

This same crowd that cried afoul over laws that were forcing them to do what they want with their bodies has all of a sudden went silent when many governors and shady groups that imposed mask mandates and trial vaccines.

So do I have a right to choose to wear a mask and get the vaccine or do I comply to coercion? The next time someone tells you to mask up remind them of how they demanded that laws don’t dictate what to do with their bodies

I’ll take “That Statement Didn’t Age Well” for $2000, Alex.

Here’s commentary from Tucker Carlson.

The Unborn Child Is Protected by Law; Deep In The Heart of Texas

For decades, Texas has lead the way in its efforts to defend the sanctity of human life. On September 1st, the heartbeat bill has gone into effect. Despite a pea from ACLU and Planned Parenthood to the Supreme Court to dstrike down the law, five justices, including Amy Coney-Barrett (about time) has ruled in favor of the law.

The law, signed in the spring time by Governor Greg Abbott, protects the unborn child as early as 6 weeks following conception. It is a time of rejoicing for all pro-lifers. At the same time, we still have much work that needs to be done to cultivate a culture where all life is protected from the moment of conception to natural death.

Kudos to the Republic of Texas for leading the charge and continuing to do so for the unborn.
