The following is from Juide Brown of American Life League
Few people remember but back in 1987, Judge Robert Bork was skewered for being an honest man.
The leftist media, Ted Kennedy, Pat Leahy and “Abortion Joe” Biden — whom the press labeled the father of Borking — joined forces with Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Catholics for a Free Choice and every other radical group in Washington.
They did it then. They are doing it now.
American Life League was one of the few pro-life Catholic organizations ringing the bell for Judge Bork. Pro-lifers got lazy, the lynch mob tasted blood… and Bork lost in a landslide.
We warned the nation when they did it to Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, and Brett Kavanaugh.
Now they are trying to ‘Bork’ Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
Right now, the lynch mob is already out in force. Barrett is under attack from Senate Democrats, pro-abortion pressure groups, and the media, which go to every length to suppress the true sentiments of the American public.
Senate Democrats are even going so far as attacking Barrett’s Catholic faith in a complete violation of the US Constitution and the First Amendment.
American Life League is in a unique position to push back. Linked with your voice and the voices of hundreds of thousands of pro-life Catholics just like you and me builds the resources we need to react in real time.
Mark my words. This is going to be a longer and harder fight than we realize.
On October 25, 1994, Susan Smith of South Carolina strapped her two children into their car seats in her Mazda Protégé and proceeded to release the car down a ramp into John D. Long Lake. Alex was 14 months and Michael was 3 years old. She then reported the car had been hijacked with the children in it and a manhunt ensued. On November 2, 1994 she pleaded with the hijackers on live TV to return Alex and Michael and then on November 3rd finally admitted to killing her children. The next day the children were found, still buckled in their seats in the car at the bottom of the lake. One of the divers, Steve Morrow, said there was a small hand against a window pane and the car seats were dangling upside down.
At the time there was intense media coverage and an outpouring of public sympathy for these children. I could not help but imagine the two children in the backseat. Were they awake? Were they scared when they realized there was no adult with them? Were they alive when the water started filling the car? Did they cry? Did they scream for their mother? Did they struggle in their car seats?
Children whose lives are ended thru abortion are in a similar circumstance. They are trapped, there is no one to stop what’s happening, and their last moments are traumatic. Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist, has created several educational videos* (animated drawings) to describe the abortion process. Dr. Levatino early in his career had completed 1200 abortions but later had a conversion – prompted by circumstances in his personal life – and decided never to perform another abortion. His description of the various abortion methods is very clinical and straightforward. I’d like to think that if people actually were educated about abortion from a medical standpoint it would make them pause and reflect on how violently life is being destroyed, regardless of its legality.
Politicians may defend and applaud a woman’s right to choose, but the victim of abortion deserves equal consideration. We cannot ignore the fact that there is a child undergoing severe stress to allow for the predicted outcome of two heartbeats going into an abortion practice but only one coming out. There are those that say the child is not aware of anything, so that makes the vacuums and curettes OK. How cold-hearted is that? And what degree of confidence do we have in that statement when considering a more fully developed child will receive a needle with a lethal dose of digoxin applied to her heart, torso or head to cause fatal cardiac arrest before surgically disassembling her body. Dr. Colleen Malloy, MD, a board certified Neonatologist and Assistant Professor at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in 2012 stated that at 20-week gestation a child’s pain receptors are present and linked.
Should the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision be codified as is the mission of the Biden/Harris ticket** state restrictions on abortion would in theory be nullified. This may not come to pass if the states challenge the federal government through the legal system. But the fact that politicians who champion unrestricted abortion never mention the child in the equation is disturbing. By taking the time to view Dr. Levatino’s videos, we will have a better understanding of what a baby experiences during an abortion and also the effects that abortion may have on the child’s mother. Shouldn’t we at least understand both sides of the story before pulling that lever or completing our ballot? Knowledge is power….and silence is approval.
We will never know what the Smith children experienced in their last moments in the back of that car but we can imagine it was terrifying. Are we as a country any better than Susan Smith if we refuse to acknowledge the horror of a child’s death at the hands of an abortionist?

It has been over one year since the lease with Planned Parenthood at a location in KCK has been canceled. Thanks to all who helped get this lease canceled. You have effectively helped save the lives of many unborn babies!!!
We must stay vigilant on PP efforts to establish a location in KCK. PP testified last year in the KS Senate that they wer looking at several locations in KCK. Our battle is not over. We are unaware of any PP activity in regards to a specific location at this time.
The following is my personal reflection as I was praying outside of Planned Parnethood’s largest late term facility located in downtown Denver area.
On Friday, October 9th, myself and a few friends decided to pray for nearly two hours in front of Planned Parenthood.
When I pulled up, two women, Linda and Donna, faithful Christian pro-lifers were holding signs at the gates of one of the largest abortion facilities that I have seen in my pro life experience. It was like a military campaign to place a fortress under siege. They both gave us the lowdown on the location and pointed several faithful warriors who were with us.
It was amazing to see a strong presence of Christians coming out to pray for the Jericho of the Abortion Industry that one day will be a haven of life.
I led the prayers for nearly two straight hours. I can remember seeing how many would join us, carry on with additional prayers, and even getting support from people coming and going.
I may not know if a baby was saved, but I do know that my presence always made a difference as yours should too.
Whenever you travel, set aside some time to pray outside of an abortion facility. Meet the local pro-lifers, exchange stories, and form a friendship that will last a long time. When this fight to overturn abortion is over, we will all look back on our efforts to shut down every modern day concentration camp in our country.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. – Ephesians 4: 32-32
Let us pray:
We pray that our lives would reflect our redemption, so others may see it and trust in You. In obedience to you and by your grace, we choose to forgive others as You have forgiven us. In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen. * from 40 Days for Life devotional

Details are below including links to livestream this event from either Our Lady of Guadalupe parish website or through their Facebook page. We ask that you print out the attached flyer and distribute to all your pro-life family and friends. We hope to have a good showing both at the church and through livestreaming.
Come listen to Detective Jim Wood give a presentation about his experiences during the investigation and trial of Kermit Gosnell, the world’s most horrific serial killer of late-term unborn babies.

Compromising on Abortion. What does that mean? In the September 28th issue of Bloomberg’s Businessweek an article quoted two political scientists stating their opinion that some of the up and coming Republican Party female candidates are “very, very, conservative” and “they’re going to want to be confrontational.” The article’s author then went on to explain that 20 years ago, many conservative (Republican) women in Congress were moderates who compromised with Democrats on such issues as abortion, health care, and education. I can understand negotiating and compromising on health care and education. There are many facets to each and much of which entails finances and budgets. But exactly how does one compromise on abortion? Perhaps convicted murderer and abortionist Kermit Gosnell who actually killed children after they passed thru the birth canal is an example of compromising on abortion — he let them take a gulp of air and then went on to kill them.
As to the confrontational comment, I expect any one who has taken an oath to represent me to be confrontational. Taking the life of a child, stopping a heart beat and a brain wave is worth confrontation. If someone came inside your home to take your son, your daughter, your niece, your nephew, your grandchild wouldn’t you be confrontational? Or would you compromise? Would you say, take my daughter but not my son? How about you leave the 8-year-old but go ahead and take the infant? Or is it OK to compromise because the person under discussion cannot speak for themselves?
If we are willing to compromise with children’s lives, should we also be willing to compromise on society’s other vulnerable groups? How would we go about compromising with the lives of the homeless, drug users, or senior citizens – all of whom in fact can at least speak for themselves. Which ones do we keep and which ones do we toss, deciding that they have no value, no dignity and aren’t worthy of our best efforts to keep them alive? Oh, that’s a different story isn’t it? That kind of compromising might get a politician some bad press and we don’t want to appear socially insensitive, do we?
The issues with political discussions about abortion are two-fold. Firstly, politicians embracing abortion rights actually refuse to use the word abortion. These politicians and their followers mask the word abortion by referring to it as: health care, procedure, Roe v Wade, choice, right to choose, reproductive rights, etc. If you believe in it, then call it what it actually is…abortion. Secondly, they opt to ignore the fact that these children are just that, children who are growing with their own DNA, their own heartbeats and their own brain waves. And while the Roe v Wade decision of 1973 was as careless to newly created life then as it is now, we now have so much more medical and scientific knowledge to bolster the argument that these are in fact persons in their own right. Rather than saying abortion is legal and therefore OK, shouldn’t we be questioning the past and then pursuing positive (for the child) change to the Supreme Court’s ruling on abortion. (See, I used the actual word abortion twice in one sentence – it can be done.). Cancel culture stops at the door of abortion rights apparently – not allowed to cancel those.
Compromise. We’ve all done it to avoid a standoff or to move things along. We might not have been 100% happy with the results but we knew we could come back another day and re-visit the issue. Once a child has been aborted, that option is no longer available. There’s no coming back from compromising someone else’s life. And in my home state of Pennsylvania most recent statistics report 30,364compromises of someone else’s life in 2018.
