NE Philly Christmas Caroling

In the Christmas story, hope enters the world through the birth of a child, even in the midst of difficult circumstances.  Join us as we share this Christmas hope where it’s needed most: at the Planned Parenthood located on Comly Road in Northeast Philly on Saturday, December 14th.

We hope everyone from Northeast Philly and Lower Bucks County will come and join us for this annual event.  Let’s bring that hope and mercy where it’s most needed, outside the Comly Road Planned Parenthood.

Please dress warmly and invite your family and friends to join you.

Are Your Home Yard Sign(s) Deployed?

While some communities and  neighborhoods may prohibit yard signs, this is a novel idea. If you’re allowed to have signs in your yard it would be a great way to get the pro-life message across to your neighbors.

from John Pisciotta, Pro-Life Waco 

While we may do a little less in life-defender outreach in December, we can check to make sure our yards are fully deployed for ministry 24/7.

The cost of yard signs to you is zero. And you can pick up yard signs at my centrally located home/PLW office.   Please contact me at prolifewaco@gmail.com    for more information and my address.

You will find a variety of signs to choose from and you are encouraged to set out more than one sign. There are “40 Days for Life/Pray to End Abortion” signs in both English and Spanish. There are “Choose Life” signs showing a mom with her baby on one side and a pre-born and a post-born baby on the other side. The yard signs are at my front door entry on the Grim Avenue (rather than 42nd Street) side of my corner address.

Please ring my doorbell so I can wish you a Blessed Advent.

 

Join Us for Our Annual Peace in the Womb Christmas Caroling in Warminster, Pa on December 13th

 Peace in the Womb Christmas Caroling 
Friday, December 13, 2019
9:00 – 10:00 am
Planned Parenthood Abortion Center
610 Louis Drive
Warminster, PA 19154 (map)
(Refreshments to follow at the VFW across the street from PP)

 

Every year pro-lifers across the nation bring the joy and hope of Christmas to the darkness of abortion facilities with a Christmas Caroling day.

OLGSome gather around a large empty Christmas crèche  symbolizing both the hopeful anticipation of a child’s birth and the emptiness left behind by abortion and sing carols about the Christ child. Babies have been SAVED from abortion when their mothers heard these carols and were moved by the thought of how Mary said “YES” to be the mother of Jesus.

In Warminster, Pennsylvania,  ‘Peace in the Womb Christmas Caroling’ will be held on Friday, December 13th  in front of Planned Parenthood.  We hope everyone from Bucks County will come and join us for this annual event.

Please dress warmly and invite your family and friends to join you.  Refreshments and fellowship to follow at the VFW located at 645 Louis Drive (across the street from Planned Parenthood).  

This event is sponsored locally by the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition and  nationally by the Pro-Life Action League.

Thankful for Life: A Thanksgiving Reflection

For many of us who look at the calendar, we realize that there is a holiday that is often times overlooked because of Christmas commercials and even decorations at many retailers.

The holiday in America has had its origins since 1565 when Spaniards settling in St. Augustine, FL celebrated mass on September 8th 1565 and it later followed with a feast with Seminole tribe. Evidently they even ate alligators.

Under George Washington, he designated a day of thanks. It was only until  Abraham Lincoln designated the last Thursday of November as a national holiday during the American Civil War.

Thanksgiving may be a time to gobble up on turkey and watch football. However,  the holiday has a deeper meaning than that.

The holiday gives us an opportunity to give thanks for what we have, especially the gifts bestowed upon each of us.

Have you taken that opportunity to thank God for family, friends, our faith, and even the gift of life?

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things, but the most important thing is the gift of life. Without this precious gift, I would not be here. I have a purpose in life and I thrive to find out that purpose as I continue to make a difference.

Have a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. May God bless you and your loved ones.

“And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17

Alison Centofante, Director of External Relations forwarded the following report about the successful inaugural Live Action Awards Gala in Los Angeles, California. 

LA-blue3

The Inaugural Live Action Life Awards Gala was held on November 16th, and thanks to all who were able to support and attend, we filled the Historic Vibiana in Downtown Los Angeles, California with over 550 pro-life leaders from California and across the country!

We chose Los Angeles for this gala to make a statement: if we can change hearts and minds on abortion here, we can change hearts and minds anywhere. And we are changing hearts and minds in Los Angeles and across the country.

Our gala united pro-life leaders from across the country to make it clear abortion is the most urgent human rights abuse of our time – and it must end.

We honored outspoken pro-life champions Ben Shapiro, Ben and Kirsten Watson, and Gianna Jessen with Live Action’s first Life Awards for their work and dedication in the pro-life movement.

The Life Awards Gala honors these individuals and all who are fighting to end abortion, the greatest human rights abuse of our time.

Live Action President and Founder Lila Rose said of the awardees:

“These pro-life leaders are well-deserving of this year’s Life Awards. Their courageous example is inspiring for all of us as we build a culture that respects vulnerable, preborn life. The pro-life work of Ben Shapiro, Benjamin and Kirsten Watson, and Gianna Jessen touches millions of people, including a huge number of young people who will shape our culture in years to come. We need more outspoken voices like theirs to share the pro-life message about the dignity and worth of preborn children, and the harm that is caused by abortion.”

Special guest Pat Lencioni, president and founder of The Table Group and New York Times best-selling author, also addressed the crowd of over 550 business leaders, organizational leaders, and dedicated pro-life activists encouraging them in their pro-life convictions.

Thousands Gathered to Celebrate Life, Honor Courageous Witnesses and Pioneers

Since 1981, pro-lifers from all across the greater Philadelphia area to celebrate the accomplishments of the past year and look ahead to recommitting to defend life from conception until natural death as a new year is just mere weeks away. On Sunday evening, 1200 pro-lifers from newborn to great grandparents gathered for a night to remember, connect with other pro-lifers, and celebrating their first inalienable right; life.

This year, the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia area, used the evening to honor award recipients who have chartered authentic healthcare for women, stood tall against the hatred of a state representative, and leading by example on a college campus. Not only did they honor those who were rewarded for their amazing works, but they also took time to recognize the medical students who were in attendance, especially those at Drexel and Thomas Jefferson Universities.

In his open remarks, Fr. Christopher Walsh and Tom Stevens reminded everyone that everything State Rep. Brian Sims said in a viral video when attacking pro-lifers this past spring was all a lie. Pro-lifers continue to do the amazing work in not only caring for babies in the womb, but to also care for the mom and their baby for a lifetime in helping with home economics, job skills, and even their education endeavors.

In addition to the award recipients, the attendees had the opportunity to hear from two amazing speakers. The first was Dr. Monique Ruberu. Dr. Ruberu shared her experience while in residence at Hahnemann University Hospital of how she was forced into taking part in an abortion and she knew from that day that she will never do it again. She encouraged all in attendance to stand tall for their faith and the most vulnerable in our society with her.

The second speaker was Rachel Guy. She thanked everyone for all they do to defend the unborn child.  While in the womb, doctors gave a grim diagnosis to her parents who were encouraged to abort Rachel. Her parents chose life instead. Rachel was born at 1 lb. 2 oz. and became healthy during her five-month stay in the NICU. She founded His Love and Care, a ministry that connects expectant mothers with pro-life OB/GYNs and physicians.

As 2019 draws to a close, this is one of the most amazing events that every pro-lifer from conception to senior citizens look forward to when it’s an opportunity to recommit to fighting for the good in the world and even their faith no matter what our professions are in life.

Voices for Life Blog has a New Email Address

send an email

 

The last couple of months I noticed we weren’t receiving as much email as usual in our pro-life email account.  Upon investigation I found out that all of our pro-life emails were being put into the deleted folder.  Junk mail still came to our inbox, just the pro-life emails were being trashed.  Since Outlook is censoring our email account, I’ve decided to create a new one which is connected to our blog.  Our new email address is defendlife@voices4life.blog.  

Please feel free to contact us at this email address with questions or articles you wish to submit for publication.  And don’t forget to check your own email to make sure you aren’t being censored at well!
