Activating the Church to End Abortion!

President Trump’s Birthday!

Wish President Trump a Happy Birthday!

June 12, 2017

President Donald Trump was among the very first of the generation known as the Baby Boomers, who were born just after World War II. June 14 is his birthday and I am asking you to join me in wishing him a very happy birthday this Wednesday.

But I need you to act on this right away. I leave for Washington on Wednesday morning and want to have your good wishes in my hands when I go, so that I can bring them to the White House!

A native New Yorker, President Trump was born in Jamaica Bay Hospital in Queens.

First Lady Melania Trump and their son, Barron, are moving into the White House on the president’s birthday so we know it’s going to be a great day for him. Among the birthday greetings he’ll receive from heads of state, I would like him to be deluged with well wishes from grateful Americans. Will you help me with this project?

This is a man to whom we, who love the Church and love the unborn, owe a lot of gratitude. Not only is he serving our country as President, but he is fighting for our values and for our faith!

So please click here to find out how to send birthday greetings to President Trump. And please pass this along to as many other interested people as you can!

 

Sincerely,

Fr. Frank Pavone

Every Life Update

“This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden…” – Ezekiel 36:35

Friends for Life:

 

God is doing an amazing work in Northwest Ohio. Calling forth new and emerging leaders in the pro-life and Gospel community, both Catholic and Protestant, to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the lost, forsaken and broken. Is he calling you?

 

I have no doubt the Lord is calling you, calling you to deeper commitment, deeper trust, deeper surrender to the Lord and His Church for the sake of the Kingdom. Perhaps he is calling you as never before to be engaged in the fundamental and essential battle for life.

 

If so, please consider joining us tomorrow, Wednesday May 31st on the sidewalk of Capital Care Abortion Facility, 1160 W. Sylvania Ave., Toledo at 6:30 p.m. for an hour of peaceful, loving and joyful prayer. Each month we gather to be a witness to the abundant life and to raise awareness in the community of the innocent lives that are lost at the last remaining abortion facility in Northwest Ohio. Please consider joining us tomorrow night!

 

Finally, my wife Laura was kind enough to allow me to host the annual Respect Life “Vision Meeting” at our home on May 11th. We were blessed by 3 tremendous priests from the Diocese of Toledo, as well as 22 other leaders from some fantastic pro-life organizations in Northwest Ohio. I look forward to how the Holy Spirit will unfold what was prayed on and discussed, but in the meantime I wanted to share with you what I shared with those leaders concerning the “The Big 4” initiatives I’m working on this upcoming year and how you can be involved. Please see attached handout (The Big 4) to read about those initiatives.

 

Together, with and through God’s grace,. The abortion facility in Toledo with our fervent prayer, witness and olive branch to those inside will eventually close. God is doing this. God is doing this amazing work, why not join him in it today?

 

For the King,

 

Peter

 

p.s. In case you missed it last month, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, now chair of the USCCB’s Committee on Pro-Life Activities, reacted to the announcement by the Democratic National Committee’s chair pledging support only for pro-abortion candidates. Calling the pledge “very disturbing,” Cardinal Dolan urged party members to “challenge their leadership to recant this intolerant position.” You can read more from the Statement attached. As active members of any political party, it is incumbent upon us to fight for the voiceless within our party and nation!

Abortions UP, prenatal care DOWN at Planned Parenthood

Ohio Right to Life

Pro-life_Update_2017_Banner_final.jpg

Abortions rise as prenatal care diminishes at Planned Parenthood

After several months of delay, Planned Parenthood finally released its 2015-2016 Annual Report over Memorial Day weekend, celebrating its 100th anniversary and promising to stick around for another 100 years. The report details substantial changes in services over the last fiscal year, namely an increase in abortions and a decrease in prenatal care.

In 2014-2015, Planned Parenthood reported 323,999 abortions. In 2015-2016, that number rose to 328,348—a 13 percent increase. As of this report, Planned Parenthood’s share of the U.S. abortion market now stands at a stunning 35.6 percent.

Meanwhile, prenatal services at Planned Parenthood have been cut in half. In just one year, Planned Parenthood’s prenatal services fell from 17,419 to 9,149.

Additionally, contraception, pregnancy tests, cancer screenings, and breast exams all dropped in 2015-2016. Across the board, Planned Parenthood lost about 100,000 clients.

All the while, taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood actually increased by nearly $1 million, giving the abortion chain a whopping $554.6 million.

TAKE ACTION >>> Tell Congress to DE-FUND Planned Parenthood now!

As Planned Parenthood continues to demand taxpayer funding, their annual report is telling us exactly why they don’t deserve it. Abortions are rising, but many of its other services (which it’s hidden behind for years to keep the money flowing) are declining.

After 100 years of de-humanization, it’s time the United States cuts its ties with Planned Parenthood. Click here to tell Congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood and forward this email to two friends, asking them to do the same. This annual report should drive us to action! Take a stand for human Life today!

Winning The Fight Against Abortion

 

Pro-lifers are winning the fight against abortion. Here’s why.

Bradley Mattes

May 11, 2017 (LifeIssues) — This month marks my 42nd year of pro-life activism. I’d like to tell you it began when I was a year old, but that would be lying. I was in high school and did a persuasive speech on abortion.

Yesterday morning I received a Facebook message from a dear friend from the past, who in the early ’80s was known to most every pro-life advocate in the nation.

Nancyjo Mann still sports colorful hair

She asked a question that is on the minds of many pro-life Americans today.

She hit the pro-life scene with hair dyed in vibrant colors, was a member of a rock band and wore feathers in her hair. She was clearly not the typical grassroots pro-lifer.

Nancyjo Mann was the first woman to widely go public about her late-term abortion, sharing her remorse and horrific experience. The abortionist not only killed her baby, but butchered her body so badly she was never able to get pregnant again. Further, his ineptness created lifelong physical and emotional complications she deals with to this day.

Upon his first introduction to this colorful young woman, my former colleague, Dr. Jack Willke, saw the tremendous value Nancyjo and others like her would bring to the movement. Her flamboyant exterior actually enhanced her dramatic and moving message.

Through Facebook, Nancyjo asked my candid opinion regarding the effectiveness of the modern-day pro-life movement. She was concerned that we haven’t progressed. We still face many of the same issues we did back during her peak of involvement. Churches are still reluctant to take a stand on the most compelling civil rights issue of our day, not to mention the profound spiritual implications of ministering to women and men in crisis and those struggling as Nancyjo did after the abortion.

At times is seems that only a cattle prod would provide adequate motivation for Congress to liberate America’s preborn children. Judges continue to usurp the right to life of nearly 60-million children and ignore the desperate need for legislative safeguards that protect the physical and emotional needs of women who have abortions.

Nancyjo, I understand your concern, but have an altogether different viewpoint of the movement. I’m more optimistic than I’ve ever been, and the late, great Dr. and Mrs. Willke shared my enthusiasm before their deaths.

In addition to the imagery of abortion’s victims, long-used by pro-lifers, ultrasound and vivid pictures of prenatal life have flung open the window to the womb for all to peer in. This undeniable evidence has turned many hearts and minds away from so-called choice to support LIFE.

The pro-life movement has become very media-savvy. We’re more sophisticated than the days of the Willke slide set, brochures and Handbook on Abortion.  Social media is fertile ground for creative pro-life videos and still visuals. Over the last few decades, pro-life websites have sprung up like dandelions in spring, offering educational information, motivation and direction to equip others to be ambassadors for the babies. Life Issues Institute’s website has over 5,000 pages of pro-life educational information from cloning to euthanasia.

Our half-hour weekly TV program, Facing Life Head-On ran for eight seasons and was the recipient of three Regional Emmy© Awards – the first time pro-life programming has been recognized on such a prestigious level. Nancyjo Mann was a guest in one episode. Our daily radio commentary, Life Issues, is heard on close to 1,200 outlets with a weekly listening audience of over four-million — actual listeners, not potential audience.

The viral videos revealing the sale of aborted baby body parts and other undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood have been instrumental in eroding their brand. A few short years ago the idea of taking away their tax funding was a pipe dream, but now it’s a realistic possibility.

Womens resource clinics and centers offer state-of-the-art medical services and information that empower women to say yes to life, even under the most difficult circumstances.

Click “like” if you are PRO-LIFE!

Never before have individual states elected more pro-life candidates and passed more life-saving legislation, which has left the other side reeling in disarray.

And then there’s America’s pro-life youth…

The contribution of talent and enthusiasm of our nation’s young people cannot be overstated. They have brought with them a boldness and professionalism that has been welcomed with open arms.

At 18, I was thankful for the Willke materials, but would have given my right arm for the technical resources and camaraderie enjoyed by today’s young pro-lifers. And they’re putting it to good use.

All of this and more causes me to truly believe that abortion is living on borrowed time, and instinctively, pro-abortion activists realize the same. But we won’t cross the finish line unless we work together, arm-in-arm to protect the most defenseless and vulnerable among us. And right now we’re experiencing the most promising time that I’ve seen in decades.

What are you doing today to help protect life? Your choices are almost endless.

Here is the episode of Facing Life Head On that featured Nancyjo’s story.

Vision of Hell

Our Lady of Fatima showed them hell. Why pro-lifers should care 100 years later

Pete Baklinski Follow Pete

catholic , fatima children , francisco marto , hell , jacinta marto , lucia dos santos , our lady of fatima , sexual sins , sins of the flesh

May 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — One hundred years ago, three shepherd children in Portugal saw a vision of hell that so terrified them they thought they would die.

They saw a great sea of roaring fire into which were plunged demons and countless souls who had opposed God and his ways while they lived. The damned souls were like red-hot burning coals that emitted searing flames from their burning human-like forms. They shrieked and groaned, consumed by pain and despair.

It was Our Lady of Fatima who showed the children the horrifying vision of hell, where she said the “souls of poor sinners go.” She told them that “more souls go to hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.”

Christians have always understood the sins of the flesh to be those actions which are a misuse and abuse of God’s gift of sexuality.

God created sexual relations to be between a man and woman united to one another in the faithful, exclusive, permanent, and life-giving relationship of marriage. Sins against the gift of sexuality include contracepted sex, adultery, fornication, prostitution, pornography, immodest dress, masturbation, homosexuality. Some sins of the flesh often give rise to other serious sins such as abortion, and can lead to unfaithfulness, marital breakdown, and divorce.

And worse yet, sins of the flesh can destroy one’s relationship with God, since the sinner in choosing them rejects God’s plan for sexuality, and in doing so, ultimately rejects God himself.

Perhaps more souls go to hell for sexual sins than any other kind because of how easy it is to fall into them, especially in today’s culture where sex is glorified as the main source of human happiness.

As a father of seven who is concerned about the salvation of my children, I become frightened when I observe the sexual lies with which the culture is trying to poison my children.

From the earliest ages, educational centers want to expose my children to sins of the flesh in sexual education courses, teaching them how to augment sexual pleasure with one’s self (masturbation) or with others (fornication, homosexuality) while removing the baby-making purpose of sexual activity (contracepted sex, abortion).

The entertainment industry wants to initiate my children, especially the older ones, into sins of the flesh by bombarding them with explicit sexual content (pornography, immodest dress). And it keeps adults addicted to sins of the flesh by giving them more of the same.

Governments have even used their political authority to enshrine in law certain sins of the flesh, making it illegal for anyone to speak out against such sins and to warn people of their danger (homosexuality).

As a reporter on the front lines of the pro-life movement who sees what’s happening every day in the battle for life and family, I often have to ask myself who I am really fighting, and what I am fighting for.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking I’m fighting against abortion providers, or the homosexual lobby, or corrupt governments. While these are capable of doing much evil and are responsible for doing much evil, they are not the real enemy. They’re just people, like everyone else, including me, who need to be saved from hell.

I love when St. Paul tells the Ephesians that “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

It’s the devil and his legion of fallen angels who ensnare men and women by the sins of the flesh into the fires of hell.

Sister Lucia dos Santos, one of the seers who lived much longer after the other two, once wrote a letter to Cardinal Carlo Caffarra in which she spoke about a final battle between God and Satan.

She wrote: “The final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family. Don’t be afraid, because anyone who operates for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be contended and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue. However, Our Lady has already crushed its head.”

Those fighting for life, marriage, and the family must remember that on May 13, 2017 — the 100th anniversary of Our Lady appearing in Fatima — the ultimate fight is about saving souls from hell. This means saving those enslaved to sexual sins and those who profit from sexual sins, the abortionist, the pornographer, the brothel owner.

Our Lady of Fatima invited the children to help save souls through prayer and sacrifice.

The youngest seer, Jacinta Marto, was so moved by the vision of hell, and by the fact that she could do something to help people from going there, she began making sacrifices for the salvation of souls. She wouldn’t drink water so she could offer up her thirst. She would give away her afternoon snack so she could offer up her hunger. She would wear a rough knotted rope against her skin so she could offer up her discomfort.

Our Lady’s message about the reality of hell and the children’s example of what to do to help people from going there is something anyone fighting for life and family must take seriously. The prayer taught to the children should be constantly on our lips: “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have the most need of your mercy.”
