Pro-Life Reflections for December 12, 2011

Monday, December 12th, 2011

By Fr. Frank Pavone

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon beneath her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head. – Rev. 12:1

Reflection: Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of the unborn. Her image shows her as pregnant, carrying God Himself. That image converted millions of Aztecs.

Today, this image is taken to abortion clinics, where human sacrifice is practiced, and turns the despair of those mothers and fathers into the hope that brings new life.

Prayer: Jesus, through Our Lady of Guadalupe may we spread Your hope everywhere.

We Will Not Be Ignored

Friday, December 9th, 2011

Recently I joined Fr. Frank Pavone in announcing my support for Congressman Franks’ introduction of the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (H.R. 3541 PreNDA). Congressman Trent Franks held a press conference prior to a hearing on the bill. I then received a phone call from my good friend Dr. Day Gardner, founder and president of the National Black Pro-Life Union. Here is what she wrote regarding her participation in the press conference and the hearings on PreNDA.

“I participated in the press conference with Congressman Trent Franks and attended the hearing held later in the afternoon.

“What I found quite interesting was that media totally ignored the fact that I participated in the press conference representing thousands of blacks who also support PreNDA.

“What I also found interesting were the remarks made by Representative John Conyers (D-MI) at the hearing.

“Rep. Conyers seemed to have one main problem with the bill—it’s name. He insisted that he studied Frederick Douglass more than Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) which I thought was quite amusing and yet terribly insulting. How could he possibly know to what extent any of us, including Rep. Franks, studied Frederick Douglass? He then stated that he had never heard or read Frederick Douglass saying anything about prenatal nondiscrimination. If I were standing, I would have had to sit down for that one.

“Abolitionist Frederick Douglass’ life’s work was eradicating slavery–working to save and enrich the lives of all black people, men , women and children—so that they too, could enjoy that which we all are promised in America–life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If you read anything about Frederick Douglass you would know that he never said life and liberty should be only for those who were born already.

“So, with regard to Mr. Conyers, this Frederick Douglass quote comes to mind: “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Yes, I am suggesting that Rep. Conyers is a broken man in that he has most certainly forgotten what the “struggle” for civil rights was all about. His very broken soul has bought into the idea that more than anything else—it is age that decides if a man is a human being and deserving of life. “

What the media doesn’t want you to know is that PreNDA is supported by many in the Black community. Dr. Day Gardner spoke at the press conference but was not mentioned by the media. Equally amazing but not unexpected, Dr. Gardner was not given a chance to speak at the hearing.

As more hearings and press conferences are held on PreNDA the Black community will not be ignored. We will continue to show up and let our voices be heard one way or another. As one of the minority groups being targeted by the abortion industry, we have a strong vested interest in what happens with this bill.

I urge everyone to get involved. Contact your representatives in Congress and tell them to support H.R. 3541, the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act.

Take Time

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

In response to the many questions about Alveda, “Where will you go from here now that Mr. Cain’s campaign is suspended?” may I humbly suggest that we all take time. . .

Take time to think –
It is the source of all power.
Take time to read –
It is the fountain of wisdom.

Take time to play –
It is the source of perpetual youth.
Take time to be quiet –
It is the opportunity to seek God.

Take time to be aware –
It is the opportunity to help others.
Take time to love and be loved –
It is God’s greatest gift.

Take time to laugh –
It is the music of the soul.
Take time to be friendly –
It is the road to happiness.

Take time to dream –
It is what the future is made of.
Take time to pray –
It is the greatest power on earth.

Take time to give –
It is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work –
It is the price of success.
There is a time for everything. . . .

– Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Fr. Frank Pavone and Dr. Alveda King Announce Support for Congressman Franks’ Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: December 6, 2011

Contact: Andre Kim
347-286-7277

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and Dr. Alveda King, its Director of African American Outreach, today issued statements in favor of H.R. 3541, the Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA). The measure, the subject of a House subcommittee hearing this afternoon on Capitol Hill, would outlaw any abortion performed because of the race or sex of a baby.

“We know from census figures that sex selection abortions do happen in the United States,” said Fr. Pavone. “We also know because we minister to those who have had them. The abortion industry enables and facilitates discrimination against girls in the womb. The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act is urgently needed to stop the blatant and barbaric killing of babies because of their sex.”

“There’s still a place in America where people can be killed because of their race and the perpetrators go free. It’s the abortion clinic,” added Dr. King. “The minority baby whose mother listens to an abortionist who masks his racism in false compassion can be denied his life and liberty simply because of his skin color. This outrageous racism should be illegal. When Congressman Franks’ legislation is passed it will be.”

In addition to criminal penalties for the abortionist who performs a sex or race selection abortion, H.R. 3541 would establish civil remedies for the mother, father, and maternal grandparents of the victimized unborn child. The bill would also make it illegal to solicit or accept money for the performance of such discriminatory procedures.

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit Priests for Life.

Brokenhearted, But Not Broken

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Friends, thank you so much for your calls, tweets and emails regarding how I’m “feeling” about Mr. Herman Cain’s decision to suspend his campaign for presidency of the United States. Like Mr. Cain says, let’s be okay first with God, then our families and finally ourselves. The most encouraging aspect about all of this is the prayers and encouragement that keeps coming. Never mind the media hype and all the lies, that’s all part of the political nasty “game.” Let’s keep our hearts uplifted and our eyes on Jesus, and see what God has for us in the days ahead. Again, thank you and God bless you.

Please read this article:

By Herman Cain

You’re not defeated as long as you never stop fighting. And while my presidential campaign is suspended, it’s important to remember that my pursuit of the presidency was only a means to an end. As long as the end is achieved, victory will be at hand.

My incredible army of supporters, whom I can never thank enough for all they have done so far, have not labored in vain. The real prize is still ours for the taking.

I did not want to become president just for the sake of being president. I’m perfectly happy with what I’ve accomplished in my life and I don’t need the ego boost. Rather, I sought the presidency because our nation has some big problems to deal with, and it’s clear that our political class has neither the will nor the ability to solve them.

For that very reason, I was not surprised that I was viciously attacked once I rose in the polls. I was surprised by the nature of the attacks. Me, a womanizer? I would never have thought they’d come up with that one. But I knew the establishment would not like the idea of my success, because I will not get along by going along like so many do. I will not kick the can down the road to the next generation of leaders, because our problems are serious and they need to be solved now.

That threatens people who know there may be a political price to pay for enacting solutions that will work, and would rather wait things out and let someone else take the heat. That would not have been possible during a Cain presidency.

But if real solutions are achieved, it will not matter who achieved them. If Congress and the president take the right measures to ensure our fiscal strength, protect our national security, achieve energy independence, spur economic growth and accomplish health care reform that actually works – it won’t matter to me whose signature is on the bills. Only that the bills become laws that get us to the goal.

And while I am disappointed, there are more than a few silver linings to doing this work outside the context of a presidential campaign. The process by which we choose our nation’s leader is ridiculous. There is little focus on policy substance and even less on candidates’ governing skills. If you’re not warding off some wild accusation, you’re explaining away a “gaffe,” which is usually the sort of slip of the tongue that anyone can make, but because some reporter heard it, it turns into a news-cycle narrative with a shelf life of six or seven days.

That’s behind us. All I need to do now is advocate for solutions that work, under the auspices of TheCainSolutions.com, and that will have two essential elements.

One is to better educate the American people about the nature of the problems we face. There is still too little understanding of the severity of our debt and fiscal crisis. That is why members of Congress lack the political will to solve the problem. They perceive that they will pay a steeper price for taking action than they will pay for doing nothing. That is no excuse for such poor leadership, but the fact remains that if we can change the political dynamic – so that the people are demanding action rather than rewarding inaction – we will be able to change the results.

The second element is to advocate for solutions that actually work. I was amused by the criticism I received for frequently mentioning my 9-9-9 tax reform, particularly by those who referred to it as a “catch phrase” and so forth, clearly demonstrating that they didn’t grasp what it’s all about. The 9-9-9 plan is the biggest transfer of power from government back to the people since the beginning of this nation. That’s what they are afraid of.

I talked about 9-9-9 so often during the campaign because it’s a major reform that would completely change the way we pay taxes, the way we do business and the way people manage their personal budgets. We need reform like that. Political consultants are forever telling candidates to “stay on message,” but I guess that doesn’t apply when the message is a substantive reform that would actually solve problems. Be that as it may, I am far from finished staying on message. The Cain Solutions effort will relentlessly push for an understanding of the real stakes our nation faces, and for a groundswell that demands real solutions.

As I said during my announcement on Saturday, becoming president was Plan A. Anyone with a big goal needs to recognize that you might need a Plan B, and our Plan B has a lot going for it.

Six months ago, most of you had never heard of me. You have now. A lot of what you’ve heard is not true, but I’ve got your attention. Keep listening, and if you care about the future of our country like I do, get involved. Unlike a presidential campaign, what we’re doing now can’t be stopped by scandal-mongering or polls. We’ll only be defeated if we give up.

And we’re not going to do that.

Silent No More Awareness Campaign Urges VA. Governor To Enact Abortion Clinic Rules

Monday, December 5th, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dec. 5, 2011

Contact: Andre Kim
347-286-7277

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign today released a statement in support of the proposed abortion clinic regulations in Virginia that are awaiting the signature of Gov. Bob McDonnell. The new rules would require clinics to meet hospital standards and undergo government inspections.

“In the name of ‘choice,’ women have accepted sub-standard care in facilities with less oversight than most veterinarian offices,” said Janet Morana, co-founder of Silent No More and executive director of Priests for Life. “These new regulations would force abortion clinics to function more like hospitals. Now they are just assembly lines of death and grief.”

In February, the State General Assembly approved establishment of new restrictions for the state’s 20 abortion clinics, and in September, the Virginia Board of Health approved the proposed rules. After McDonnell’s review, the regulations are scheduled to go into effect Jan. 1.

“Clinic directors in Virginia say they may have to close if forced to meet these new standards,” said Georgette Forney, co-founder of Silent No More and president of Anglicans for Life. “That is a shocking admission of just how shoddy these facilities are. Many of the women who speak publicly about their abortions as part of our campaign talk of the sub-standard care they received. Women and their unborn children are nothing but commodities. Opposition to these regulations has nothing to do with choice, and everything to do with profit.”

Dr. Alveda King, a spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life, urged women to contact Gov. McDonnell’s office at www.governor.virginia.gov to voice their support for the abortion clinic regulations.

“This is not just a pro-life/pro-choice issue,” said Dr. King. “This is about protecting women, and everyone who cares about women’s health should support these regulations.”

Since the launch of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 4,845 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 865 gatherings in 48 states and 10 countries where more than 110,830 attendees have heard the truth about abortion’s negative aftereffects. More than 10,100 people representing 57 countries are registered to be Silent No More. Raising awareness about the hurtful aftermath of abortion and the help that is available to cope with the pain are two of the Campaign’s goals. The Campaign has over 1,300 testimonies posted here, with over 120 that are shared via video!

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:

The Difference

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

With everything that’s going on in our everyday lives, it’s always good to find the time to step away with the Lord.

I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish that I didn’t have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task.
“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered. He answered, “You didn’t ask.”

I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why God didn’t show me. He said, “But you didn’t seek.”

I tried to come into God’s presence; I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided, “My child, you didn’t knock.”

I woke up early this morning, and paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.

See our pro-life prayers at Priests for Life!

Congressman Wants To Outlaw Abortions Motivated By Race Or Gender

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Caroline May
The Daily Caller
Thursday, December 01, 2011

Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks once again is pushing to outlaw abortions that are due to an unborn child’s race or sex, with legislation that would punish medical providers who perform abortions, or accept funding for abortions, based on those criteria.

According to Franks, a ban on these types of abortions is needed because minority babies are aborted at five times the rate of white babies and, based on a 2008 report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, U.S. Census data shows that certain populations have “son-biased” ratios due to “sex selection, most likely at the prenatal stages.”
“I know all of the explosive dynamics related to anything connected to abortion, but this should be something that all of us can find some common ground on,” Franks told The Daily Caller. “That is my hope.”

Franks introduced the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, or “PRENDA,” on Tuesday.

It is similar to legislation of the same name he pushed in the 111th Congress — then the bill was referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary and the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties but never reached the floor for a full vote in the House. At the time the bipartisan bill had 49 co-sponsors.

PRENDA would exempt the would-be mother from prosecution, but make abortion providers liable should they perform or accept funding for abortions based on sex or race.

Franks explained that the genesis for PRENDA was a protest rally at a Washington, D.C. Planned Parenthood he attended several years — which was staged by Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, pro-life advocate Alveda King and a number of African Americans who were upset about the high percentage of aborted African American babies.
