Priests for Life Media and Travel

April 17 – April 24

I invite you to read a press release I sent out today announcing that Priests for Life is beginning this week a public awareness campaign on third trimester abortions. You can find the release directly on our homepage at www.PriestsForLife.org.

Also, from April 20-April 28 and from April 29-May 7, pro-lifers are asked to participate in campaigns of prayer and fasting to end abortion and the evils of Planned Parenthood. Prayers for this interdenominational effort can be found at www.PrayPP.com. The sponsors of the prayer campaign, Priests for Life and the National Pro-life Religious Council, are joined by a coalition of 28 national and pro-life groups. Please ask your Pastors to utilize and promote these prayers among their congregations and announce www.PrayPP.com from the pulpit and on their websites.

The first prayer campaign will be in preparation for the coordinated nationwide protests outside Planned Parenthood facilities on April 28-29 and the prayer campaigns will occur in conjunction with the protests and the days following. Please plan to join a local protest in your area. If you are joining a protest, be sure to let the leader know about this campaign of prayer and fasting. You can also use hashtag #praypp.

At www.PrayPP.com, all people of faith will find six unique prayers available in English and Spanish which include a prayer for repentance, a prayer for those wounded by abortion, for pro-life advocates and public officials, and for the conversion and defunding of Planned Parenthood. On that page you will also find a link with information about where the protests are across the Country.

Finally, I encourage you to contact your Representative and Senators today and urge them to stop funding Planned Parenthood! See our recent action alert for more information.

Many thanks for your participation and promotion of all of these efforts!

Blessings,

Fr. Frank Pavone

Activating the Church to End Abortion!

Do these 10 things – Want to stop Planned Parenthood?

| , 05:52pm 

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s abortion behemoth, commits 324,000 known abortions each year. That’s fifteen thousand school classrooms full of children who are obliterated by one taxpayer-funded organization every single year. It’s a child’s life coming to a violent halt every 97 seconds.

There is no debate: stopping Planned Parenthood is a key component in relegating the heinous practice of human abortion to the ash heap of American history. But what’s the strategy for ushering in a Planned Parenthood-free era? Read on for a simple 10-step plan. Whether you commit to just one action or tackle the entire list head-on, you will make a difference.

1. Know Planned Parenthood’s most popular lies and how to debunk them.

Planned Parenthood is a house of cards built on deception and lies. From the way it counts its services to blatant falsehood spewed on national television, the organization is devoid of honesty and integrity. Know how to spot Planned Parenthood’s most popular lies, and be prepared to debunk these narratives whenever you encounter them.

2. Make sure your elected officials know how you feel about Planned Parenthood.

You don’t need to be a politico or a policy wonk to keep in touch with your elected officials. Remember, elected officials have a job only because of the voters and taxpayers in their districts. They work for you, so make sure they know how you feel about Planned Parenthood. Elected officials need to know that you want Planned Parenthood stripped of taxpayer funding. Use this resource to tweet at, email, or call your elected officials. Calling takes only a moment, but it has a big impact. You can also send a postcard or a letter detailing your thoughts.

3. Be present at Planned Parenthood when you can.

Your peaceful presence outside Planned Parenthood serves as a reminder to the public, to Planned Parenthood employees, to media, and to patients that the abortion business doesn’t fly under the radar. Stay abreast of – or help organize – rallies and pro-life events at your local Planned Parenthood. Or simply show up to pray, counsel, and offer information, or peacefully stand as a witness to the pro-life values that run contrary to Planned Parenthood’s inhuman practices.

4. Get your friends and family involved.

Author Charles Duhigg once wrote: “Movements don’t emerge because everyone suddenly decides to face the same direction at once. They rely on social patterns that begin as the habits of friendship, grow as the habits of communities, and are sustained by new habits that change the participants’ sense of self.”

Recruit your family and peers to join you in your efforts to stop Planned Parenthood. Ask them to call elected officials, join you at a Planned Parenthood demonstration, or participate in a social media campaign. As Duhigg notes, movements grow out of social bonds – friends recruiting friends and forming tight-knit communities. The pro-life movement is not at all different, and your friends may just be waiting for an invitation to join you. Together, we’ll stop Planned Parenthood and end abortion.

5. Stay up to date on efforts to stop Planned Parenthood.

Stay ahead of the curve on the conversation surrounding Planned Parenthood so you’re prepared to counter false narratives when they arise. Perhaps you will be able to start a new and more accurate narrative to pre-empt the rampant deceptions and parroted talking points of America’s Abortion Corporation. To stay informed about legislative action, hearings, rallies, and calls to action in the fight to stop Planned Parenthood, follow Live Action on Twitter, sign up for email updates, and keep up with the latest news and commentary on Planned Parenthood here at Live Action News.

6. Participate in awareness campaigns about Planned Parenthood.

Pro-life groups work to keep Planned Parenthood in the public eye while the abortion behemoth uses deceptive marketing and talking points to shift the narrative away from abortion. It’s easy to participate in awareness campaigns about Planned Parenthood. For example, Students for Life of America is currently running a #SockIt2PP campaign, aiming to deliver 323,999 baby socks – representing the 323,999 preborn children Planned Parenthood kills each year – to Congress. The purpose of the campaign is to underscore the need for Congress to take action on defunding Planned Parenthood. We need them to do it now.

7. Use social media to set straight the public narrative on Planned Parenthood.

Social media allows users to reach massive audiences effortlessly. And never take for granted how much of your audience on any platform may be sitting on the fence when it comes to abortion and Planned Parenthood. Reinforcing opposition to Planned Parenthood and correcting falsehoods on social media serves to counter the skewed weight the mainstream media throw behind the abortion giant. To help your truth-telling messages go farther, hashtag popular terms like #abortion and #feminism. Share videos that tell the truth about abortion and Planned Parenthood – like the three included in this article and the others at LiveAction.org and AbortionProcedures.com.

8. Demand pro-life leadership and action from your church.

Pro-life leadership from within the church would prevent many women from turning to Planned Parenthood in a moment of crisis. The stakes here cannot be overstated: when church leaders fail to provide education to their congregations and resources to women and families in need, the injustice of abortion goes unchecked.

Did you know that a pregnant woman sitting in church on Sunday is at about the same risk of choosing abortion as a non-religious woman? Yet a Barna survey reveals that only about 1 in 10 pastors speaks publicly on abortion with any regularity. Church silence on abortion is deadly. The truth is that pastors fear negative repercussions of preaching on abortion. But church leaders should fear not talking about abortion more, because it is the women, families, and preborn children of the congregation who will suffer the price of their silence. In addition to encouraging your pastor and women’s ministry leader to speak out, consider starting a group like Embrace Grace in your congregation.

9. Empower the men in your life to be vocal about Planned Parenthood’s betrayal of women.

Planned Parenthood and its supporters have sent a clear message to men over time: if you support abortion, you’re welcome to speak up. But if you don’t, you have no right whatsoever to speak your mind. At the same time, half of all women who undergo an abortion cite an unsupportive partner or the potential of being a single parent as the reason for seeking the abortion. What statistic could more clearly indicate the need for men to speak up – loudly! – on behalf of pregnant women and the preborn? Men: Planned Parenthood tells you to sit down and shut up, but your voices have never been more important in this debate. Need a little inspiration? Visit a site just for men: AbortionExploitsWomen.com. You can also visit this additional resource if you are trying to help a woman in your life make a pregnancy decision.

AbortionExploitsWomen.com should prove to be an excellent resource for those men who are willing to “stand in the gap,” to face the judgment of big-business abortion, and to do what is right for women, children, and men. For more powerful videos released by AbortionExploitsWomen and Human Coalition, go here.

10. Don’t back down – not ever!

Planned Parenthood is a bully on the playground of public debate. The group and its supporters will try to berate you, mock you, and bully you into silence. But that’s because Planned Parenthood knows that its days are severely numbered, in large part because the Pro-Life Generation is a majority. Remember, without Planned Parenthood’s pretty pink façade and sound bites about “women’s health” permeating the public narrative, the ugly truth of tiny severed body parts and women betrayed quickly comes to the fore. So stand strong in the face of Planned Parenthood’s tactics to silence your message. Find strength in numbers (see #4!), and look with hope and expectation toward the day when Planned Parenthood and its barbaric enterprise are consigned to the ash heap of history.

Ban on Taxpayer Funding for Abortions Overseas

Ohio Right to Life

Pres. Trump reinstates ban on taxpayer funding for abortions overseas
Trump Admin. advances pro-life policies ahead of the March for Life


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  
     CONTACT: Katherine Franklin
DATE: Monday, January 23, 2017     PHONE: 614-547-0099 ext. 304

COLUMBUS, Ohio–Today, one day after the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning taxpayer funding for abortions overseas. What is known as the “Mexico City Policy” was originally established by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. President Obama infamously rescinded the policy when he took office in 2009. The reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy could affect foreign pro-abortion groups like the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which operates in 180 countries.
“After eight years of Barack Obama’s pro-abortion policies, pro-life Americans are relieved to finally see their taxpayer dollars being safeguarded again,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. “This is a momentous order by our new President, and telling that he would time it with the tragic anniversary of Roe. Ohio Right to Life applauds President Trump for making de-funding the abortion industry one of his first orders of business.”

The reinstatement of the pro-life policy comes just days before hundreds of thousands of pro-life people are expected to attend the annual March for Life in Washington D.C. on Friday.

“One of the main reasons that so many voters flocked to President Trump during the election was because of the promises he made to the pro-life community,” said Gonidakis. “Elections have consequences, and we are so grateful that so early in Mr. Trump’s presidency, those consequences are life-affirming. With great anticipation, we look forward to the many more pro-life policies to come in 2017.”

Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 45 chapters and local affiliates, is Ohio’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.

Silver Screen is rejecting ‘Gosnell’

Featured ImageAlphaCares new location, the building on the left, is just one wall away from Kermit Gosnells shuttered abortion clinic

Opinion

Silver Screen is rejecting ‘Gosnell,’ but here’s a silver lining

Jay Hobbs

December 5, 2016 (PregnancyHelpNews) — Hollywood may be too afraid to tell the truth about abortion, but the same doesn’t go for AlphaCare, a pro-life medical clinic set to relocate its services just a wall away from Gosnell’s former office this December.

AlphaCare’s move, slated for Dec. 19, will mark a significant step for the pregnancy center and two of its leaders—Karen Hess and Kim Bennett—who have been praying and planning to bring hope and healing to the neighborhood since 2011.

Having served women since 1981 within just a few miles of the Lancaster Ave. site it will now call home, AlphaCare is bringing its free ultrasounds, free pregnancy testing, options counseling, post-abortive healing, parenting education and more to many of the same women on whom Gosnell preyed for three decades.

A major impetus for Hess and Bennett—herself post-abortive—is to help women and families in the immediate area heal after so many years of oppression, and an estimated 40,000 lives lost through abortion.

“There is a darkness in what took place in that neighborhood and the impact of that business in that corner of the city,” Bennett told Pregnancy Help News in January. “To be able to go in there and begin to redeem it, even from our two row homes, is huge. It’s huge to be able to be a light in an area where there was so much darkness.”

Suppressing the “Controversial” Truths of Abortion and Murder

For over 30 years prior to his arrest and ensuing convictions in 2013—which included three guilty verdicts of murder in the first degree—Gosnell operated what one government investigator famously called a “House of Horrors.”

At Gosnell’s clinic, babies were not only routinely killed after they were born alive, but conditions were so unsanitary and medical attention so derelict that at least one woman, Karnamaya Mongar, died after a botched procedure at his clinic.

While media coverage of the trial and gruesome details uncovered in the investigation of Gosnell’s practice has been scant to say the least—a trend famously called out during the trial by syndicated columnist Kirsten Powers—Wednesday marked another milestone in the media’s ongoing blackout of the story.

As Mollie Hemingway pointed out this summer at The Federalist, one of the few reporters who covered the case from the courtroom tweeted, “Sat through a full day of testimony at the Kermitt (sic) Gosnell trial today. It is beyond the most morbid Hollywood horror. It will change you.”

In an email to supporters Wednesday, producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney announced that, after having shown their film to “every major distributor in Hollywood,” not one of those companies would agree to move forward on a deal, citing the “controversial” nature of the movie.

Starring Nick Searcy and Dean Cain, a record-breaking 30,000 individual supporters sponsored the entirety of the film’s $2.3 million-plus budget at Indiegogo.com. The producers had originally started a KickStarter.com campaign to raise the money, before that site censored their project.

The Best Film About Abortion Ever Made”

While McAleer told Breitbart News’ Daniel Nussbaum he is kept by non-disclosure agreements from telling which distributors refused to move forward with the film, test screenings “scored off the charts.”

Pro-life advocate David Daleiden, whose three-year undercover research revealed the abortion industry’s illegal underground market in the body parts of aborted babies in 2015, said it “is the best film about abortion ever made.”

Intentionally lacking any graphic scenes or unnecessary depictions, the film is rated PG-13, accomplishing a major goal of the production team to remove any legitimate obstacles to its release, per Nussbaum’s report.

“Hollywood’s refusal to distribute the Gosnell movie is a politically-motivated double standard because the Gosnell movie is a true story and it shines a negative spotlight on abortion,” the producers wrote in Wednesday morning’s email.

“But we are not going to give up. At every point in the story of Dr. Kermit Gosnell the establishment have tried to suppress the truth. They suppressed the truth when he was operating his house of horrors and killing women and children.”

McAleer and McElhinney are planning to release the film independently, and have released a book, “Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer,” which available for pre-order at Amazon.comBarnes & Noble and Books a Million.

In the meantime—and for the long run—AlphaCare, which recently added a mobile ultrasound unit to its suite of services, is ready to write a new story in Philadelphia.

This August, a Christian social services agency that works closely with a local pregnancy center bought and converted an abortion clinic formerly owned by notorious abortionist James Pendergraft in Ocala, Fla.

Former abortion clinics turned into life-affirming pregnancy centers in recent years include two in Iowa—including one former Planned Parenthood clinic—two in Miami, one in Toledo, Ohio, and a former flagship Planned Parenthood building in Bryan, Texas, that now houses both 40 Days for Life and a pregnancy help medical clinic.

Ultrasound Law Gives Women Increased Information

NRL News Today

Ultrasound Law Under Attack by Planned Parenthood Gives Women Increased Information

What Is Planned Parenthood So Afraid of?

Hologram ultrasoundINDIANAPOLIS –Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) and the American Civil Liberties Union is seeking an injunction against the requirement in the Dignity for the Unborn Law that specifies women receive an ultrasound at least 18 hours before an abortion. Obama-appointed federal judge, Tanya Walton Pratt, is hearing arguments in Indianapolis.

PPINK filed a lawsuit this summer against the ultrasound requirement. At the time, PPINK admitted it only had ultrasound equipment at four of its then-23 locations around the state. In contrast, there are more than 50 ultrasound machines at pregnancy resource centers around the state providing free services to pregnant women.

The ultrasound machines at pregnancy resource centers have been purchased by gifts from thousands of Hoosiers who care deeply about women and their health, and who believe women deserve to be truly informed about their pregnancies.

“The 18-hour ultrasound requirement gives women more information about their health and pregnancy before they have an abortion,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “Planned Parenthood should support the ideal that women have increased information. What is Planned Parenthood so afraid of?”

Fichter continued, “Is Planned Parenthood afraid that more abortion-minded women will choose life after seeing an ultrasound of their developing child? Is Planned Parenthood afraid that women will not be able to forget hearing the heartbeat of their child? Is Planned Parenthood afraid that giving women time between seeing their child and having the abortion will cut into their profits? The chilling answer to all these questions is ‘yes.’ Planned Parenthood cares more about itself than women.”

The Abortion Movement Just Lost The War On The Unborn

Opinion,

The abortion movement just lost the war on the unborn

Steven Mosher Steven Mosher

URGENT: Call on President-elect Trump to keep his pro-life promises! Sign the petition now.

Editor’s note: The views expressed herein are solely those of the author.  As a non-partisan public charity, LifeSite does not endorse these statements and takes no position on political candidates.

November 9, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – On the campaign trail, Donald Trump often said, “I’m going to make every dream you ever dreamed about your country come true.”

The “dream” of pro-lifers has been an America where the scourge of abortion is no more. That’s why they voted for Trump in overwhelming numbers, returning a pro-life majority in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

Come next January, when Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, a pro-life majority will be seated in the House and the Senate.

Now the American people rarely give the same political party control over the House, the Senate, and the White House. But that is exactly the happy situation that, thank God, we find ourselves in now.

For the first time since 1928, Republicans—we should really say the Party of Life–will control both the executive and the legislative branches of government.

The long stalemate between the Party of Abortion and the Party of Life is now over, and things should begin to move in our direction come January. I expect a number of legislative remedies to our national tragedy of abortion to emerge from the Congress and the White House.

I say this because our new President is a builder, and he prides himself that his projects come in under budget and ahead of schedule.  So I believe that he will quickly move to keep the promises that he made to us during the campaign.

  • Trump will ask the House and Senate leadership to send him legislation defunding Planned Parenthood. Once this is signed, the abortion giant, which has killed over 7,000,000 babies since Roe v. Wade and which spent $38 million in a vain effort to elect Hillary Clinton, will no longer be on the receiving end of federal funding. Hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars will no longer flow into Planned Parenthood’s coffers. The loss of roughly 40% of its annual revenue will surely slow down the killing.
  • Trump will also back the passage of legislation banning abortions after 20 weeks.  He has pledged to sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which will save tens of thousands of lives each year.
  • Trump has also pledged to “repeal and replace” Obamacare. With its demise will go hundreds of burdensome regulations, including those that brought the Little Sisters of the Poor and other plaintiffs to the federal courts to seek relief from its abortion mandates.
  • With Trump’s support, I also expect the Mexico City policy, first passed by President Reagan in 1984, to be written into permanent law. This will require that non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that receive federal funding to certify that they will not perform, promote, or lobby for the legalization of abortion in other countries.
  • We will also, again with Trump’s support, be able to permanently defund the UN Population Fund.  The UN’s population control arm has been a cheerleader of China’s program of forced abortions and sterilizations from the beginning. We should have no part of it.

There are two potential roadblocks to this rosy scenario.  The first is the Senate tradition of filibustering.  Sixty votes are required under the current Senate rules to invoke “cloture” and bring legislation to a vote. So pro-lifers will need to keep pressure on potential holdouts throughout the legislative process.

The second is the federal judiciary, including the Supreme Court, which Obama has sought to pack with justices like Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. They insist that the law is merely a “social construct,” and that they can “reconstruct” it in almost any way they want.

The Founders would be uniformly horrified to think that their treasured Constitution has been used to justify abortion. It is a great irony that leftwing justices, arguing that the Constitution is a “living document,” have bizarrely turned it into a writ to kill.

That brings us to the most important campaign promise of all, which President-elect Trump has repeated dozens of times on the campaign trail: “I will appoint justices like Antonin Scalia to the Supreme Court.”

The list of potential justices, some 20 strong, has already been drawn up.  I believe that the nomination will be made quickly once he takes office.  This will restore balance to the court, and ensure that the hundreds of pro-life laws that have been passed by state legislatures stay on the books. Laws mandating waiting periods, counseling, ultrasounds and, in the case of minors, parental consent have done a tremendous amount of good.

What happens after that depends entirely upon the health of the Supreme Court justices.  Sooner or later, another elderly justice—perhaps Ruth Bader Ginsburg or David Souter—will decide to step down.

This will create an opportunity for President Trump to nominate another justice or two.  Once a solid pro-life majority is in place, the terrible injustice visited upon us by the Supreme Court in 1973 will be no more.  Roe v. Wade will be decisively overturned.

The issue of abortion will be sent back to the states, most of which have laws protecting Life already on the books.

All of this sounds very good, some will say, but can we trust Trump to keep his word?

In the aftermath of a long and vicious political campaign, one in which Trump’s opponent relentlessly attacked his character, I do not think it is an unreasonable question.

But I would say that the American people, on November 8th, did not just elect Donald Trump, they elected Vice President Mike Pence, Governor Mike Huckabee, Dr. Ben Carson, Father Frank Pavone, and Marjorie Dannenfelser, and all of the dozens of fine individuals who campaigned with him and for him.

He is a visionary leader who has built a tremendously successful business over the decades by hiring talented people, developing a shared plan, and then unleashing them to carry it out. That’s what real leaders do, and I believe that he will do the same thing as president.

A long time ago, Abraham Lincoln remarked that America’s Founders put slavery on the path to ultimate extinction. With the election of Donald Trump and Mike Pence, I believe that modern-day Americans have put abortion on the path to ultimate extinction.

Thanks to the wisdom of the American people, we now have a generational opportunity to fulfill the promise of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness to all Americans, including the unborn.

Vote Pro-Life

Ohio Right to Life

Friend —

In the last 6 years, with pro-life leadership at the helm, Ohio has witnessed a whopping 25% reduction in abortions! Our pro-life leaders have enacted 17 pro-life laws, including our Late-term Abortion Ban and the de-funding of Planned Parenthood, and HALF of Ohio’s abortion facilities have closed or curtailed their abortion services.

We know that voting pro-life has life-saving consequences, and we MUST ensure that we continue this trend, not only here in Ohio, but across the country. Tragically, across the United States, over 1 million children continue to be aborted each year. According to the Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s research arm, 1.06 million abortions occurred in the United States in 2011.

We know that Hillary Clinton’s pro-abortion agenda will be an aggressive, radical expansion of Barack Obama’s policies over the last 8 years. We simply CANNOT give another 4 years to a pro-abortion President.

Join us in voting for Donald J. Trump and the rest of our pro-life candidates tomorrow, November 8!

Donald Trump has made multiple promises to the pro-life movement, including the nomination of pro-life Supreme Court Justices AND the de-funding of Planned Parenthood on a national level.

Hillary Clinton has promised the OPPOSITE. She has promised to nominate pro-abortion justices and to REPEAL the Hyde amendment, forcing pro-lifers like us to DIRECTLY PAY for abortions up until the moment of birth!

Every one of these promises should disqualify ANY candidate from our consideration.
