What A Wild Ride We’re On!

 
January 25, 2017
Dear Friend,
      Donald Trump has been the President of the United States for less than one week, and it’s been a wild ride!  The past year has been filled with controversy, rhetoric and disharmony, and none of that has abated since the inauguration only 5 short days ago. Here’s my recap on a few things:

1.   Last October, a tape of crude and inappropriate comments made about women by Donald Trump was released.  It was disgusting and horrifying.  Women were outraged!  Yet what a double standard many of those women have!  This past Saturday, marches about women’s rights were held around the country in supposed protest about Donald Trump’s disregard for women, yet he hadn’t been in office 24 hours, and the behavior and signage of many of the march participants was much more crude and disgusting than what was revealed by the tape of Donald Trump.  How hypocritical! The speakers and the march participants did not show much regard for being women, and actually CELEBRATED the legality of killing an unborn child.   What did they think they accomplished by this march?  The women’s march certainly didn’t represent me!

2.  One of President Trump’s first actions this week was to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, which effectively stops U.S. funding of abortion to international locations.  Hallelujah!   The only negative here is that there is an exception to rape, incest and fetal anomalies in this policy, and that needs to be changed.

3.  HR7 was passed by Congress this week and now goes to the Senate. No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act (HR 7), introduced by Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, makes permanent the so-called Hyde Amendment. Thus far the amendment, which prohibits federal money from being used to fund abortions through Medicaid, has been subject to annual renewal. The bill also removes funding from Obamacare. The BAD thing about this bill is that it also has exceptions for rape, incest and fetal anomalies that need to be removed.  Contact your senator to support this bill, but REMOVE THE EXCEPTIONS!

I do have more hope for the future than ever before with the election of our new president, but I’m not taking it for granted.   Watch for updates here soon about what you can do to make a difference.
In the meantime, pray for all of us who will be going to Washington DC this Friday to march for women’s rights, born and unborn, at the March for Life.
Our work goes on.

For Life,
Denise Leipold

Executive Director

Thank you!

 

    A big thank you to Bishop Murry from the Diocese of Youngstown!

Since we serve Portage County (which is in the diocese of Youngstown), we were requested by the diocese to take part in a pro-life expo held last Saturday by the diocese in Canton.  At the mass celebrated by Bishop Murry, he bestowed a special blessing on all of us who will be attending the March for Life in Washington, DC.  We met many wonderful people at the expo, and will also be participating at the expo this coming Sunday in Youngstown, weather permitting and we don’t get stuck in Washington!

The REAL Truth…

American Life League’s video entitled
“Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger?”
will air on EWTN this week!
Thursday, January 26, at 10:00 a.m. EST

Saturday, January 28, at 6:00 p.m. EST.

 

Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger? unmasks the contraceptive mentality and Planned Parenthood’s racist and eugenic roots. This is an excellent video to watch in light of all the publicity that Planned Parenthood has received over the last week.
After watching the video, ALL would like your feedback. Please e-mail mflores@all.org to let them know what you think.
