HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Feastday: March 17
Patron of Ireland
387 – 461

St. Patrick of Ireland is one of the world’s most popular saints.

Apostle of Ireland, born at Kilpatrick, near Dumbarton, in Scotland, in the year 387; died at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland, 17 March, 461.

Along with St. Nicholas and St. Valentine, the secular world shares our love of these saints. This is also a day when everyone’s Irish.

There are many legends and stories of St. Patrick, but this is his story.

Patrick was born around 385 in Scotland, probably Kilpatrick. His parents were Calpurnius and Conchessa, who were Romans living in Britian in charge of the colonies.

As a boy of fourteen or so, he was captured during a raiding party and taken to Ireland as a slave to herd and tend sheep. Ireland at this time was a land of Druids and pagans. He learned the language and practices of the people who held him.

During his captivity, he turned to God in prayer. He wrote

“The love of God and his fear grew in me more and more, as did the faith, and my soul was rosed, so that, in a single day, I have said as many as a hundred prayers and in the night, nearly the same.” “I prayed in the woods and on the mountain, even before dawn. I felt no hurt from the snow or ice or rain.”

Patrick’s captivity lasted until he was twenty, when he escaped after having a dream from God in which he was told to leave Ireland by going to the coast. There he found some sailors who took him back to Britian, where he reunited with his family.

He had another dream in which the people of Ireland were calling out to him “We beg you, holy youth, to come and walk among us once more.”

He began his studies for the priesthood. He was ordained by St. Germanus, the Bishop of Auxerre, whom he had studied under for years.

Later, Patrick was ordained a bishop, and was sent to take the Gospel to Ireland. He arrived in Ireland March 25, 433, at Slane. One legend says that he met a chieftain of one of the tribes, who tried to kill Patrick. Patrick converted Dichu (the chieftain) after he was unable to move his arm until he became friendly to Patrick.

Patrick began preaching the Gospel throughout Ireland, converting many. He and his disciples preached and converted thousands and began building churches all over the country. Kings, their families, and entire kingdoms converted to Christianity when hearing Patrick’s message.

Patrick by now had many disciples, among them Beningnus, Auxilius, Iserninus, and Fiaac, (all later canonized as well).

Patrick preached and converted all of Ireland for 40 years. He worked many miracles and wrote of his love for God in Confessions. After years of living in poverty, traveling and enduring much suffering he died March 17, 461.

He died at Saul, where he had built the first church.

Why a shamrock?

Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Trinity, and has been associated with him and the Irish since that time.

In His Footsteps:

Patrick was a humble, pious, gentle man, whose love and total devotion to and trust in God should be a shining example to each of us. He feared nothing, not even death, so complete was his trust in God, and of the importance of his mission.

HHS Abortifacient/Contraceptive/Sterilization Mandate is NOT HEALTHCARE –

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Hurts Women, Endangers Babies

There are eight law suits addressing the unconstitutionality of the HHS ACS MANDATE. Priests for Life has filed a compelling case against the mandate. See lawsuits against the HHS Mandate. There is no question about the fact that abortion kills babies. The United States Supreme Court also has read over 2,000 testimonies from women who have been harmed by abortion. Below is additional information about why abortifacients, contraceptives, sterilization and abortion are not good for women and/or babies.

WHY ABORTION AND ARTIFICIAL CONTRACEPTIVES ARE HARMFUL TO THE WOMEN

1. ABORTION AND ARTIFICIAL CONTRACEPTIVES ARE NOT HEALTH CARE.

A disproportionate number of women suffer medical side effects from abortions and use of artificial contraceptives.

2. The connection between contraception and abortion

Many in the pro-life movement versus anti-life debate are reluctant to make a connection between contraception and abortion. They insist that these are two very different acts–that there is all the difference in the world between contraception, which prevents a life from coming to be and abortion, which takes a life that has already begun.

To the contrary, with some contraceptives there is not only a link with abortion, there is an identity. Some contraceptives are abortifacients; they work by causing early term abortions. The IUD seems to prevent a fertilized egg–a new little human being- from implanting in the uterine wall. The pill does not always stop ovulation, but sometimes prevents implantation of the growing embryo. And, of course, the new RU-486 pill works altogether by aborting a new fetus, a new baby. Although some in the pro-life movement occasionally speak out against the contraceptives that are abortifacients, most generally steer clear of the issue of contraception. Almost no one talks about how the abortions and artificial birth control not only kill and/or prevent the birth of babies, they are very bad for women’s health. Both, for instance, are linked to breast cancer.

A gray area – forced or coerced sterilization. The most visible and classic case of forced sterilization is noted in the testimony of Elaine Riddick. Her case, and those of other women who were sterilized in North Carolina is currently being considered for litigation.

Women have been and are being sterilized without their knowledge. There are recent cases of women who were “treated” with placement of IUDs in their wombs without their knowledge. There are known side effects to sterilization and IUDs, and studies are being conducted regarding harmful effects of such.

3. How are abortion and artificial birth control linked to breast cancer?

Dr. Chris Kahlenborn’s new book: Breast Cancer, Its Link to Abortion and the Birth Control Pill is the culmination of seven years the author spent reviewing and analyzing more than 500 research studies and related works. It is very timely because of the breast cancer epidemic, which currently threatens every woman. Both abortion and artificial birth control are linked to breast cancer.

4. Are Black Women in a high risk category for the abortion/birth control/breast cancer link?

Yes. Research shows that induced abortion increases the risk of breast cancer more for some groups of women than for others. Black women, for example, have higher rates of breast cancer and tend to develop more aggressive cancers. There is also a greater risk in women who have had abortions if they were under age 18 at the time, if they do not have any more children after aborting, or if they have a family history of breast cancer.

In 2009, in a study of more than 50,000 African-American women, Boston University epidemiologist Lynn Rosenberg found a 65 percent increase in a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer among those who had ever taken the birth-control pill. The risk doubles for those who had used the contraceptive within the past five years and had taken it for longer than 10 years.

This unwelcome news doesn’t fit well into the wave of coverage of the pill’s 50th anniversary. A Newsweek columnist gushed that the pill “did more good for more people than any other invention of the 20th century.” In a cover story, Time magazine extolled the pill as “the means by which women untied their aprons, scooped up their ambitions and marched eagerly into the new age.” (True. Thanks, pill!) A commemorative MSN.com piece flatly asserted earlier this year that “taking the pill has no impact on breast cancer risk.”

Rosenberg’s findings question that assertion. She wanted to study black women because they have been underrepresented in cancer research so far, even though they suffer from higher rates of “triple negative” breast cancer. This relatively rare form of breast cancer, in which the tumors lack certain genes and so are not responsive to standard treatments like tamoxifen, confers the highest and fastest mortality. In Rosenberg’s work, it was these cancers that were linked to the pill. A number of other studies of women of multiple races support her data implicating the pill in breast cancer, including research done in New England; South Carolina; Long Island, N.Y.; and Scandinavia.

5. Why would black women have more breast cancer?

Breast cancer in the U.S. is more prevalent in young black women than in white women of equivalent age, and is the second leading cause of cancer death (after lung cancer) among black women. This may be a consequence of more common hormonal contraceptive use and/or a greater frequency of abortion among young black women. Black women who develop breast cancer generally have more aggressive cancers resulting in a shortened life expectancy.

It has been noted that while Black American’s make up approximately 13% or less of America’s population, nearly 33% of abortions reported since the passage of Roe v Wade in 1973 have occurred on Black Women. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, who also distributes free or low cost artificial abortion drugs has a highly targeted market to Black Women. So Black women are at a higher risk for abortions and breast cancer and other health related problems as a consequence of being marketed for the causes.

6. How could abortion cause breast cancer?

At the beginning of pregnancy there are great increases in certain hormone levels (eg estrogen, progesterone, and HCG) that support pregnancy. In response to these changes, breast cells divide and mature into cells able to produce milk. Abortion causes an abrupt fall in hormone levels, leaving the breast cells in an immature state. These immature cells can more easily become cancer cells.

Has this been proven? Yes. As of January 1999, 11 out of 12 studies in the United States, and 25 out of 31 studies worldwide, showed that women who experienced an induced abortion had an increased risk of breast cancer. In 1996 Joel Brind, PhD [1], assembled the results of all the studies up to that time. Brind concluded that women who have an abortion before their first full-term pregnancy have a 50% increased risk of developing breast cancer while those who have an abortion after their first full-term pregnancy have a 30% increased risk.

7. What does it mean to have “a 50% increased risk of developing breast cancer?”

A 50% increased risk means a 50% higher risk than someone would have otherwise. For example, if a person already had a 10% risk of developing breast cancer, then a 50% increase would bring the risk up to 15%.

8. How serious a problem is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is the worldwide leading cancer in women and is the most common cause of cancer death for U.S. women age 20-59.In the U.S. every year about 175,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 43,000 women die from this disease. This means that about one U.S. woman out of eight will develop breast cancer at some time in her life and about one fourth of such women will die from this disease. Induced abortion, especially at a young age, markedly increases a woman’s risk for developing breast cancer. This risk is increased even further by other breast cancer risk factors such as synthetic hormones (including hormonal contraceptives like the Birth Control Pill, Norplant and Depo-Provera), family history of breast cancer, and others.

The U.S. has one of the highest rates of induced abortion and hormonal contraceptive use in the world, especially for young women. The breast cancer rate in the U.S. is rising, and will likely rise even higher once the latent period (the time it takes for cancer to develop) for these women has passed. Calculations based on available studies indicate that induced abortion may result in over 46,800 additional cases of breast cancer in the U.S. annually.

9. Abortion and Fibromyalgia

Psychiatrist and researcher Dr. Philip Ney relates the story of a patient of his who developed fibromyalgia, which causes chronic pain without any apparent cause. He found that she had undergone an abortion just before this pain began, and since then, has developed a theory that in some cases, the pain of fibromyalgia may in fact be caused by chemicals released by the aborted baby’s flesh when it is torn apart. These chemicals cross the placenta, and lodge in the mother’s nervous system. In reality, she is feeling not her own pain, but that of her aborted child. We have not yet begun to understand all the implications of abortion, and of how destroying a child in the womb destroys the rest of us. Let’s pray that our society may forsake abortion and find healing.

-Permanent Sterility (leaving the woman no option to changing her mind later)

Conclusion: The Challenge of Linking Abortion and Contraception for those who respect life

Linking contraception and abortion pose a challenge to those who respect life. It may not be immediately obvious that there is any connection between contraception and abortion, but on further examination, a relationship between the two becomes apparent. Ignoring the issue of contraception leads to a lost opportunity to respect life to the fullest degree. Neither abortion nor artificial contraception are health care. There are at least three connections between contraception and abortion to consider:

1. Many contraceptives can directly cause early abortions.

2. Contraceptive use creates a perceived need for abortion as a “back-up.”

3. Contraceptive use causes a devaluation of human life.

4. Both abortions and artificial contraceptives are bad for women’s health.

End Notes:

Somehow, for political reasons, selfish gain, lack of knowledge and other variables, there are very obvious solutions that are not on the general or public radar.

BREAKING NEWS!

1. Women do not have to have unplanned or undesirable pregnancies in most cases. It is a scientific and medical fact that a woman can’t become pregnant if she is not ovulating. There are inexpensive ovulation kits on the market that women can obtain and exercise power and control over their right to get pregnant or not. A woman should have the right to say when she will and will not have sex. She should have the right and knowledge to control her reproductive rights.

2. There are natural and relatively inexpensive solutions for women who have irregular cycles and ovulation schedules. There is generally no need for invasive measures such as artificial drugs and such in these cases.

3. The $365 million a year, $1 million per day that our government tax dollars pay to Planned Parenthood who is the nation’s largest abortion provider does not provide information and resources regarding reproductive freedom regarding ovulation and pregnancy choices to women.

4. If women do not have sex when they ovulate, there is no reason for them to take harmful chemical and surgical birth control measures, many of which are known to cause heart attacks, strokes, exposure to possibility of cancer and other illnesses.

So the question is why is it so hard to break through the information barriers surrounding women’s health and reproductive rights? Could it be that people on each side of the isle, each side of the arguments have so much vested in their own interests that everyone has forgotten the women and the babies in the midst of the melee?

Priests for Life Announces Ongoing Novena re HHS Mandate

Friday, March 9th, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: March 9, 2012

Contact: Andre Kim
347-286-7277

New York, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is making available a prayer novena for the intention that the unjust HHS Mandate will be completely reversed.

“We already conducted a nationwide novena for this intention,” Fr. Frank explained, noting that Churches, schools, pro-life groups, families and individuals around the country were invited to participate. “But because the battle continues, so must the prayers. We therefore are announcing today that this is a continuous novena.”

The nine prayers can be found at http://www.priestsforlife.org/novenas/hhs-mandate.htm. The prayers are written in such a way that Christians of any denomination can use them. They focus on themes such as loyalty to God above any earthly authority, participation in the legislative process, repentance and conversion, conscience and religious freedom, enlightenment for civil leaders, courage for Church leaders, and unity. As one of the prayers says in part,

“Lord Jesus,
You continue to proclaim your Word
in your Church today.
Give us the same clarity, courage, and determination
That your apostles had,
That we may not allow any obstacle or earthly power
To intimidate us into silence or compromise.”

Fr. Pavone also pointed out that these prayers can be particularly appropriate as people across the nation prepare for the religious freedom rallies to be held on March 23, and as they conduct those rallies. Priests for Life has been instrumental in assisting the planning of these national events, and is responsible for organizing the New York City rally for that day.

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

Pro-life Student Group Arrested And Being Held In Jail For Practicing Free Speech – Story and Pics Here.

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

By bryankemper

Members of the Survivors Campus Life Tour were arrested yesterday during a lawful pro-life outreach at a public high school. It does not matter whether you agree with using graphic abortion images or not, this is a violation of their civil rights and an attack on free speech.

The Survivors was founded by Jeff White who is also my mentor and the co-founder of Rock for Life with me. Jeff is the reason I started in full time pro-life work almost 20 years ago; he is an inspiration to so many young pro-lifers. The Survivors is truly one of the most important youth pro-life organizations in the world. These are my roots.

As Youth Outreach Director for Priests for Life, my job is to help educate, activate and equip young people to be a voice for life in this culture of death. When courageous young people like the Survivors are arrested for standing up for life and practicing free speech we must be outraged. We at Priests for Life stand by the Survivors, they are an inspiration to young pro-lifers around the world.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life said, “Those who are persecuting these brave young pro-life activists are cowards, and a good example of what is wrong in our culture today. I consider the Survivors to be a movement within the pro-life movement, inspiring all of us to give ourselves more generously for the unborn. Sometimes that means arrest and prison, not for doing wrong, but for standing up against wrongdoing.”

Here are the reports coming in from the Survivors Facebook Page and some action items you can do to help these young, brave pro-life warriors. We will keep adding updates as they come in.

BREAKING NEWS: Survivors arrested in Jackson, Mississippi! The Campus Life Team were arrested for standing on a public sidewalk in front of Murrah High this afternoon. Moments after arriving at the campus to share the message of Life, Kristina Garza and Brianna Baxter were handcuffed and taken to the county jail while two more members had their signs and lit taken from them and were forced across the street. Please pray as the Survivors continue standing for their first amendment rights in this situation! We will keep you updated.

URGENT REQUEST: The Survivors are STILL being punitively held at the Hinds County Jail. At this point, Jackson will probably attempt to hold them overnight. Do you want to help the Survivors? Call the Hinds County Jail booking office RIGHT NOW and ask that the Survivors be released! Call 601-857-4800, ask for Deputy Williams (booking Deputy).

LOCAL NEWS: As quoted in this news article from WAPT, the superintendent of Jackson Public Schools and local law enforcement say they had “no recourse but to arrest the demonstrators,” claiming the Survivors were trespassing and creating a safety issue. The Survivors were on a PUBLIC SIDEWALK when they were arrested, peacefully handing out literature and holding signs. Murrah, the only safety issue we see is your administration endangering our right to freedom of speech.

KEEP THE CALLS GOING! Survivors have just found out that Jackson PD is holding the team because the Campus Enforcement will not release the paperwork. The more calls coming into the booking office, the faster they will move to get that paperwork! PLEASE CALL 601-857-4800, request to speak with Deputy Williams (booking deputy), ask him why they haven’t released the young pro-lifers arrested early this afternoon!

UPDATE: Jackson PD kept Kristina Garza and Brianna Baxter in the county jail all night after unlawfully arresting them yesterday afternoon for “disorderly conduct” and “interfering with a bus driver.” BOTH FALSE CHARGES. The Survivors were handing out literature on a public sidewalk — an activity that is well within their rights as citizens and which poses no danger to anyone around them. Kristina and Brianna will go before the judge at 9 AM this morning. PLEASE KEEP THEM IN YOUR PRAYERS!

Update 10:25 AM Both Kristina and Brianna are being held on $2000 bonds each. They were not put on the court docket today but the rest of the team is trying hard to get them added to this afternoon’s docket. Please pray that they get in front of a judge this afternoon and do not have to spend anymore time behind bars.

Update 2:30 PM Both Kristina and Brianna are being RELEASED! The judge has decided to release both of the Survivors, trusting them to show back up for a court hearing on April 6th. We are praying that the charges are dropped before that date.

Update: 6:30 PM Here is the official press release and video of the arrests:

On March 5. 2012, the Survivors Campus Life Team attempted to distribute literature to and engage students in discussion about abortion at Murrah High School in Jackson, MS. Within minutes, school administration and Jackson police officers attempted to block Survivors missionaries from sharing their message, ordered students off the public sidewalk, threatened to arrest the Campus Life Team missionaries, and went so far as to grab missionaries’ signs and cameras.

Pro-Life Youth Arrested for Peaceful Free Speech Activity on Public Sidewalk

Life Legal Defense Foundation Defends Activists in Mississippi

JACKSON, Miss., March 7, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — Yesterday, two college-age members of the Survivors Campus Life Tour were arrested on a public sidewalk outside of Murrah High School in Jackson, Mississippi, while distributing literature to students in front of the campus.

The group of pro-life youth activists first attempted to hold signs, distribute literature, and peacefully dialogue with students on the public sidewalk on Monday. Jackson School Police Officers immediately confronted the group and moved their signs across the street, sequestered students back inside the school grounds, and ordered students not to take the literature being handed out or speak with the demonstrators. The police claimed that the sidewalk belonged to the school and that they had a right to remove the pro-life activists. At the same time, the Survivors observed that the same sidewalk they were denied access to was being used by passersby and joggers.

After conferring with their attorneys from the Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF), the Campus Life Team returned to the public sidewalk in front of Murrah High School yesterday. When the police told the activists to leave the sidewalk or go to jail, Kristina Garza and Brianna Baxter remained, and were immediately arrested.

“Law enforcement officers and officers of the court are charged with protecting our civil liberties, but in this case they are intentionally conspiring to subvert the legal process and deny these pro-life advocates their right to due process of law,” said Dana Cody, executive director of Life Legal Defense Foundation. “Rest assured, everyone involved in the miscarriage of justice will be held accountable for their misdeeds.”

Dr. Alveda King, Priests for Life’s full-time director of African-American Outreach, has been named one of NewsOne’s Top 10 Black Women.

In naming its “Sheroes,” the news service wrote of Dr. King: “Deemed the ‘voice of the voiceless’ and an enemy of pro-choice advocates everywhere, King, the niece of civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., believes that unborn babies have a right to life… King, a pro-life activist and evangelical minister is driven by a strong spiritual conviction which is to keep the controversial issue of abortion before lawmakers.”

Dr. King shares the honor with First Lady Michelle Obama; astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison; Liberia President Elllen Johnson Sirleaf and other women of achievement.

“At Priests for Life, we have always recognized Dr. King as a ‘sheroe,’ because she is courageous and relentless when it comes to speaking out for the unborn,” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “To have her recognized by NewsOne is very exciting. She deserves the honor.”

An Atlanta resident and mother of six, Dr. King is a former college professor who served in the Georgia State House of Representatives. She is a recipient of the Life Prize Award (2011), the Cardinal John O’Connor Pro-Life Hall of Fame Award (2011) from the Legatus organization and the Civil Rights Award from Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) (2011). She is a best-selling author whose books include “How Can the Dream Survive if we Murder the Children?” and “I Don’t Want Your Man, I Want My Own.”

She is an accomplished actress and songwriter. The Founder of King for America, she is also the recipient of an honorary Doctorate of Laws degree from Saint Anselm College and sits on the board of Georgia Right to Life. She is a member of the National Black Prolife Coalition, NBPC, a frequent guest on Fox News and a spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign.

“I am humbled and so honored by this recognition,” Dr. King said.”African-Americans need to bring an end to the abortion genocide that is decimating our community and NewsOne is helping me get that message to the people who most need to hear it. I thank NewsOne from the bottom of my heart.”

Do You Know What Planned Parenthood is Teaching Your Children

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Watch this very important video report from American Life League. WARNING: Explicit content

After all the years I’ve spent informing people and being vocal about Planned Parenthood’s agenda, I am surprised at nothing they do. In fact, after watching the video below I just wanted to pray harder for our children. They are bieng bombarded at every turn: music, television, videos, movies, and so many other places. And the sad thing is that most parents are oblivious to their struggle against the peer pressures they face.

Sure every generation has its struggles and challenges. This generation, however, is facing a bigger challenges as they have to deal with the sins of our generation, namely, the legalizing of abortion on demand and the deaths of over 54 millions babies that have been aborted since January 22, 1973.
