Fr. Frank Pavone issued the following statement upon today’s release of undercover video of Planned Parenthood:

“America will not reject abortion until America sees abortion. The video footage released today gives Americans yet another opportunity to do precisely that.

“Planned Parenthood personnel, looking at the body parts they sell, talk about legs, spinal columns, kidneys and hearts, not ‘blobs of tissue.’

“In order to sell baby body parts, there first has to be a baby. It is time for those who have been denying that fact to admit it, and for those who have been admitting it only in private to admit it in public as well.”

Cecile Richards ‘defense’ shows Planned Parenthood is running scared

July 27th, 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

347-286-7277

NEW YORK – In a telling interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC This Week, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards evaded direct questions about what the two videos released by the Center for Medical Progress show regarding the abortion giant’s harvesting and selling of baby parts.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded:

“Cecile Richard’s defense was no more than a deflection. She kept asserting that the videos were “highly edited.” But the words coming out of the mouths of Deborah Nucatola and Mary Gatter weren’t placed there by editors; they were placed there by Deborah and Mary. And those words indicate that both the prices and the procedures are altered.

“Planned Parenthood is clearly on the defensive. Richards asserts that she looks forward to the facts coming out. If I were her, I wouldn’t be looking forward to that at all, because the additional videos coming out will only confirm what we have already said: Planned Parenthood kills babies, including late in pregnancy, and harvests their organs for sale.

“Instead of trying to attack what pro-life people are doing, Planned Parenthood needs to explain what it is doing, and then it needs to stop doing it, whether that be by choice or by force of law.”

Body Parts for Sale: I Shudder to think what happened to my babies, says Alveda King

July 22nd, 2015

As the scandalous saga of Planned Parenthood‘s harvesting of baby body parts continues, www.bodyparts.com I shudder to think what happened to three of my babies. The issue isn’t only whether these transactions are legal or not. The question of human decency is also key.

 

As a post abortive mother, I shudder to think of what happened to bodies of three of my babies. My two abortions and a subsequent miscarriage in the 1970s,  all due to wrong thinking and misinformation from Planned Parenthood and the anti-life industry at large are all part of a dark season of my life. I write about these experiences in my books KING RULES, HOW CAN THE DREAM SURVIVE and SONS OF THUNDER.

 

I can remember the hours in the abortion facilities; the pain, the stress and duress of procedures that left my womb empty and my heart broken; having papers pushed before me for signature with minimal if any explanation. Like many women, I was there with conflicting thoughts and feelings. All that time not knowing that my babies would share in my pain.

 

As one woman explains: “I went for a procedure. Upon arrival, I was given five pills; two antibiotics and three sedatives. As I waited for the pills to take effect, I was given a clipboard of papers to sign. I was distracted and the duress was debilitating. The staff urged me to quickly finish my paperwork so that the procedure could take place.”

 

This is a common scenario. There is little time to consider what is happening; what will happen to the body of the mother and her baby. This is why a 48 hour waiting period between the consultation and procedure can be so key.

 

I didn’t have that precious time. And I and my children suffered the consequences. The Silent No More Awareness Campaign shares important details regarding the lack of disclosure a woman experiences during the “procedure” that can result in having her baby’s body parts harvested.

 

The issue of abortion is being danced around by media as this body part debacle unfolds. As all unravels, we will discover that there are heinous tentacles from a Three Headed Monster that are at the core of the assault on humanity.

 

It won’t be the media who helps heal the hearts and wombs of women. It will be prayer; as we see in this impassioned plea from a young woman.

Let us pray for strength as truth crushed to earth rises again.

 

PRAY FOR AMERICA

Alveda King: Open Letter to the Congressional Black Caucus, Concerned Black Clergy and other paralyzed leaders

July 20th, 2015

 IMG_3841

click here to enlarge picture

 

Dear CBC, I am writing to you today because my heart is heavy over the deafening silence coming from you regarding a recent video that has gone viral exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting and selling aborted babies’ body parts.

If they or anyone else had been exposed for harvesting and selling animal body parts, there would be such an outrage from the left and right. “Save the whales! Save the dolphins! Save the doggies and cats!” people would declare. But for some reason it seems to be okay to chop up the unborn babies and harvest their body parts.

It’s been a week since the video that shocked a nation was released and not a word from the CBC.

CBC, I ask you, “Are you so beholding to the abortion lobby that you are totally paralyzed and unable to garner the necessary will to denounce their behavior?”

The National Black Prolife Coalition of which I am a founding member has addressed you before challenging your support of the abortion industry that targets Blacks; those you profess to be protecting and fighting for. You never responded.

But I thought surely this current gruesome behavior on the part of PPH would be the catalyst for change. I thought to myself, “Surely, now the CBC will yank their support of an industry that is involved in the illegal harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies. But yet we hear nothing. Your silence is defeating.

My mother Naomi King and I visited the new Center for Civil and Human Rights Museum in Atlanta. There among the treasured artifacts we read “Secrets of Married Happiness,” Uncle MLK’s handwritten sermon about holy matrimony.

There were many displays throughout the museum, not just about MLK. Yet, like your position of silence, there is nothing there about the helpless mothers and babies who are victims of the abortion mills of our times. Their plight screams of human injustice and human trafficking at their work. Yet you remain silent.

For the record, my Uncle MLK was Prolife. Even though his wife attended the awards ceremony where a plaque was attributed to MLK, he didn’t attend. MLK, my Daddy AD King and their father ML “Daddy” King were Prolife. Granddaddy even saved me and one of my children from abortion. Thank God he did.

I became suspicious of the motivation behind PPH awards and grants while investigating the so called MLK acceptance speech for the PPH Maggie Award. My Uncle MLK didn’t write the speech, didn’t attend the ceremony, didn’t believe that abortion was a civil right. Like Mrs. Laura Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush, Mrs. Coretta Scott King was prochoice in favor of a woman’s right to choose abortion. She accepted the Maggie Award instead of her husband.

During her lifetime, in her own words, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger said:

While the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors, they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table… They do not do this with white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the clinic, he can go among them with enthusiasm and…knowledge, which…will have far-reaching results among the colored people…The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Yes, Sanger and her Federation targeted and sometimes paid Black leaders – doctors, preachers, lawyers, teachers – with grants and scholarships – to convince them to join her. Does this sound like love and compassion?

Attention CBC (Congressional Black Caucus and Concerned Black clergy). As a post abortive mother, I know first hand the pain abortion can bring. There is no agape love in abortion and trafficking baby body parts. They are hateful and violent deeds.

Matthew 6:24 says, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Well, CBC, you cannot serve both Planned Parenthood and your constituents. By serving Planned Parenthood you are not only hating the other or despising the other but your position is helping to kill our people.

It’s not too late to put your constituents first, where they belong. Get behind; no take the lead in the investigations of Planned Parenthood. Take the lead in calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. It time to stand up for truth.

Planned Parenthood Scandal Renews Call to “Recall Abortion”

July 17th, 2015

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: July 17, 2015

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK — Janet Morana, author of the book “Recall Abortion,” said the current controversy swirling around Planned Parenthood and the way it procures and potentially profits from fetal organs will rally Americans to finally recognize abortion for what it is: A harmful product that should be pulled off the shelves.

“We have known for nearly two decades that this is happening both in Planned Parenthood and in other abortion mills. They dissect and package up the hearts, lungs, liver, limbs and eyes of children they kill,” said Mrs. Morana, executive director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. “One the public’s eyes are open, we can’t go back and keep pretending that abortion clinics are just another aspect of health care.”

In “Recall Abortion,” Mrs. Morana interviews doctors who have performed late-term abortions and discusses humane and loving options for parents who learn that their unborn child has a life-limiting disorder.

“Those parents who abort their late-term babies are the ones who are the most traumatized,” she said. “Finding out that an unscrupulous doctor might have determined how to kill their child based on what part brings the best price will be too heart-breaking for many to bear.”

To arrange an interview with Mrs. Morana, send an email to leslie@priestsforlife.org or call Leslie Palma at 347-286-7277. For more information on the book, go to RecallAbortion.com

Planned Parenthood’s Bag of Tricks

July 17th, 2015

willie parker poster resized

Amidst the scandal of a video that was released by the Center for Medical Progress which shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, discussing the selling of body parts of aborted babies, the pro-abortion organization trots out their poster child “heroes” like Dr. Willie “Lynch” Parker as if to say that abortion is okay because this African American doctor, who says he’s a Christian and passionate about women and babies says he’s doing “compassionate” work.

Well Dr. Parker, how can you say that it’s compassionate to kill babies and put their mothers’ health at risk while working with an industry that speaks so callously of harvesting human tissue and challenged by accusations of the despicable, unlawful sale of body parts of aborted babies; and say you are doing God’s will?

I’m outraged over the latest Planned Parenthood scandal. But this is just st one in a whole series of scandals that plagues the abortion industry. And it’s been going on for years.

Remember the infamous Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist from Philadelphia who was convicted of three counts of 1st degree murder for snipping the spinal cords of babies as his preferred method of abortion? The pro-life movement knew of him and others years before he was exposed. Nobody wanted to listen or enforce the laws on the books. Since then we have been shouting from the rooftops that he was not an isolated case. We have documented other such abortionists in various states including Texas, Alabama, and Maryland to name a few. Still nothing is done about them. It takes a super horrific case before people pay attention.

This whole scandal of selling body parts was first exposed many years ago and Fr. Frank posted a video about it back in 2008. This latest video exposed not only what we already knew was going on but also exposed the degree to which they will go to harvest certain organs, even to the point of performing illegal partial birth abortions and altering abortion methods, all directly from the mouth of a high level employee of Planned Parenthood.

If what Planned Parenthood is doing was being done to monkeys or other animals, there would be a huge outcry. It would be on the front of every newspaper in the country. But the abortion industry is so well insulated because of the sheer amount of money they control, they easily outspend the pro-life movement while spreading their lies.

I have been saying it for years and years and I will keep saying it again and again until the whole world can understand it. We are not in a battle between the pro-aborts and the pro-lifers. No, we’re in a spiritual battle, a battle between good and evil; between the forces of light and the forces of darkness. And this battle is more encompassing that you may think.

Michele Bachmann gets it. In a recent World News Daily article she said,

“Planned Parenthood’s goal has always been about making hundreds of millions of dollars a year off the troubles of young pregnant women.

“Planned Parenthood makes money on birth control, on youth sex education (which doesn’t discourage underage sexual activity), on abortions (as the largest abortion provider in the United States), and now on the illegal trafficking of aborted fetal parts.”

I would add to her statement that all the things she mentioned, birth control, encouraging youth to have sex, abortions, and illegal trafficking of aborted fetal parts are seeds of darkness in addition of human trafficking, racism, violence, and same-sex ‘marriage. All are part of a “three headed monster;”an assault on human life.

The article goes on to quote me,

“It’s all lining up,” said Alveda King, the niece of former civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and head of [African American O]utreach for Priests for Life. “The dots are actually being connected. Remember my Three Headed Monster Report? There is so much that is hidden. It’s time to tell the truth.”

King describes the “Three Headed Monster” as an unholy, diabolical population-control scheme that uses racism, sexual perversion (homosexuality, fornication and adultery) and reproductive genocide in what amounts to a war against God [and the light].

This war against God is transforming out nation to one that has no respect for life. You see all the signs and hastags: #BlackLivesMatter, #BlackWomenMatter, #AllLivesMatter, and #HumanLivesMatter. Yet all the time, violent outbreaks and what my Uncle MLK called “man’s inhumanity to man” continues seemingly unchecked.

Humankind has always struggled with their fallen nature. But in 1963 when prayer was ruled out of America’s schools, and then on January 22, 1973, when the Supreme Court turned its back on God and out nation accepted their Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton rulings that abortion would be legal for any reason throughout all nine months of pregnancy, we began devaluing human life.

Now, 42 years later, we see where the path we chose has taken us. We have taught our people hate, not love. We have taught our people to use violence to get what they want. And unless we drastically change directions, I fear we will find ourselves in a place we can never return from.

When will people wake up and see that evil is driving the abortion industry. I believe that many people have good hearts. Only God knows for sure. Many in the abortion industry really think they are doing the right thing and helping women with their unwanted pregnancies. But they have been deceived by the father of lies. There are some that I believe know exactly what they’re doing and they are the driving force behind the abortion industry; the ones spreading the lies and deceiving those that are trying to help the women.

HOW CAN THE DREAM SURVIVE if we murder our children?

We need to repent for all the innocent blood that has been shed; the babies who have been killed while too many stood by silently as abortionists across America took the babies’ lives; the injured and dying mothers; the broken families. We need to ask God for forgiveness; collectively and individually. We need to ask God to heal our land. We need to PRAY for AMERICA, before it’s too late.

Fr. Pavone: Revelations Add More Evidence to What We Knew: Abortion Industry Sells the Body Parts of the Babies It Kills

July 14th, 2015

PriestsForLife

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is calling on Americans and their religious leaders to pay close attention today, and in the coming weeks, to the new evidence that Planned Parenthood is involved in the selling of the body parts of the babies killed by the abortions it provides.

“I have been involved for decades in the effort to expose the evidence that the abortion industry sells the body parts of the babies it kills,” Fr. Pavone stated, “and I welcome this new evidence provided by David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress. The undercover videos and documentation, which have begun to be publicized today, show how people at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood are negotiating the sale of body parts, and adjusting the way they perform abortions so that the body parts are more accessible. This violates both the law and the most basic sense of human decency.”

Fr. Pavone collaborates closely with Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics, who first exposed the sale of baby body parts some 15 years ago, and with Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, who has exposed many criminal activities that occur in abortion clinics.

“We have on our website, BabyBodyParts.com, the images of some of the order forms that were discovered back then — forms that ask that eyes, livers, brains, legs and other body parts be shipped on wet ice to the researchers who want them,” Fr. Pavone explained.

“This activity violates state and federal laws that prohibit the sale of human body parts. Moreover, this new evidence shows that Planned Parenthood is still using the partial-birth abortion procedure, which has also been banned by law at the state and federal level.

“We therefore call on Congress to investigate this activity and to stop federal funding of Planned Parenthood. Moreover, we call on the United States Senate to vote on and pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which will protect many of the babies whose bodies are being cut up and sold in this manner,” Fr. Pavone said.

Priests for Life has set up an action alert urging citizens to call their representatives in Congress to do something about these revelations. Keep informed of this and more at www.BabyBodyParts.com and www.CenterForMedicalProgress.org.

Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Know How to Handle the Truth

July 14th, 2015

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: July 14, 2015

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement this afternoon as the details of the Planned Parenthood marketing of baby body parts continued to become known:

“First of all, the pro-life community has risen to the occasion of publicizing this material. In a number of conference calls that have been held, there has been a strong sense of unity in helping people understand that Planned Parenthood is indeed selling baby parts, and breaking various laws, with the knowledge of its highest executives.

“Second, we want believers to understand that Priests for Life has notified all the Catholic parishes across America of this information, and has asked them to publicize it to their parishioners. We have also asked the parishes to have their people contact their representatives in Congress, calling for hearings into the activity of Planned Parenthood and for an end to funding for the abortion giant.

“Finally, the response of Planned Parenthood to these revelations has been pathetic and laughable. Their Vice President of Communications, Eric Ferrero, tries to paint the cutting out of hearts, livers, eyes and brains as “the highest ethical and legal standards” of “high quality health care providers.” He calls the undercover videotape that was released today ‘heavily edited,’ which is nothing more than dodging the need to respond to what is actually said in the clip.

“He states that ‘similar false accusations have been put forth by opponents of abortion services for decades.’ Priests for Life has been the closest collaborator with Life Dynamics and its President, Mark Crutcher, who originally revealed the sale of body parts some 15 years ago. Nothing in the revelations then, or in the ones today, is anything other than the plain truth — truth which Planned Parenthood and its advocates do not know how to handle.”

Advancing Reproductive Lies: Women do regret abortion (and don’t know that their babies’ body parts are being sold by Planned Parenthood)

July 14th, 2015

PPHSellsBodyParts

In a recent report, Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health just disrespected hundreds of thousands of women, including Black women like me by saying that our testimonies of our regret over our abortions are likely unfounded. In their report, they say that over 95 percent of women who have had an abortion think they made the right decision according to their new study. Released by the University of California, San Francisco think tank Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health, and using 667 women who participated in the group’s Turnaway survey, the report found that while a quarter of the women expressed some negativity about their abortions, “Results from this study suggest that claims that many women experience abortion decision regret are likely unfounded.”

While I am writing this blog, there is a news flash from Priests for Life working with Mark Crutcher at Life Dynamics, Operation Rescue, and others with startling evidence that Planned Parenthood is involved in a massive cover up over selling body parts and remains of aborted babies. It’s all lining up. The dots are actually being connected. Remember my Three Headed Monster Report? There is so much that is hidden. It’s time to tell the truth.

These people need to read RECALL ABORTION, visit abortionshockwaves.com, HOW CAN THE DREAM SURVIVE, theselmaproject.com, africanamericanoutreach.com and the newly released babybodyparts.com.

Abortion Shockwaves Ripple Out To Those On The Periphery

July 6th, 2015

SNMAC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 6, 2015

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

Imagine your friend is planning a bank robbery. Do you agree to drive the getaway car? Do you try to talk her out of it? Do you say nothing?

Now imagine an innocent bystander is killed during that robbery. Are you impacted by that death? Of course you are, whether you were complicit in the robbery or were merely silent. Even if you counseled against it, this death, and the consequences your friend will now face, will weigh on your soul.

In July, Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion, an initiative of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, focuses on the survivors of abortion as well as the family and friends of the women who have had abortions.

The survivors encompass ten different categories, such as those who were almost aborted, and those who had no legal protection while in the womb.

Friends include those who were complicit in the abortion, those who did nothing to try to stop it, those who did try to stop it but failed, and those who found out about the abortion only after the fact. Just like those involved in the bank robbery scenario, everyone who knows a mother who aborted her child is impacted by the loss of that child.

Kevin Burke, LSW, co-founder of Rachel’s Vineyard and an architect of the Shockwaves initiative noted that abortion survivors often suffer from this “extremely important and rarely discussed example of the collateral damage from the abortion blast.”

“Shockwaves was not designed to shame those who played a role in abortion,” said Janet Morana, co-founder of Silent No More. “Instead, it will sound a loving call of reconciliation and healing for all involved in abortion decisions.”

Father Frank Pavone, Pastoral Director of Silent No More and National Director of Priests for Life, explained that “Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion is a year-long international effort to reach all the different groups of people who are impacted when a child dies from abortion. In addition to survivors, those groups include grandparents, siblings, survivors, spouses, abortionists and their staff, and pro-life advocates. This is a call for all of us to grieve the children who have been killed. “

Georgette Forney, co-founder of Silent No More, said all those who mourn the loss of a child to abortion can benefit from the healing resources that can be found at www.AbortionShockwaves.com

“People on the periphery of an abortion decision might be confused about the feelings they are experiencing,” Mrs. Forney said. “Through Shockwaves, we hope to validate and address those feelings.”

Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion was launched in January at the March for Life in Washington, D.C., where the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, led a prayer and gave a blessing in the name of Pope Francis as his personal representative in the U.S.

To arrange an interview with anyone on the Shockwaves team or an abortion survivor who has found healing, call Leslie Palma at 347-286-7277 or email her at leslie@priestsforlife.org

The Campaign began November 11th, 2002. As of February 2015, the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has held 1,436 Gatherings in 17 countries & 48 states with 5,934 women and men sharing their abortion testimonies. Testimonies have also been shared at 104 high schools and universities in the last 4 years, 26 in 2014. There are 2,233 testimonies posted on the Campaign website, with 332 that are shared via video! Currently there are 16,225 people registered with the Campaign representing 77 countries. People who are not ready to join the Campaign, are invited to register their regret. So far, 4,890 women and 573men have said they regret their abortion or lost fatherhood. Another552 women and men have posted memorials to their children.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website: www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org
