Priests for Life Welcomes Arizona Decision on Late-Term Abortion

STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the decision of a federal court to uphold a ban on abortion after 20 weeks in Arizona.

“Priests for Life welcomes the decision of Judge James Teilborg regarding the Arizona law protecting children from painful dismemberment,” Father Pavone said. “Priests for Life vigorously supports similar laws in other states and the law that will be voted on today in Congress regarding protecting children in the District of Columbia.”

In the Arizona case, Judge Teilborg ruled that the law set to go into effect tomorrow is constitutional because it does not prohibit women from having abortions. He also noted in his decision that the state had provided “substantial and well-documented” evidence that a child at 20 weeks’ gestation or later has the capacity to feel pain.

“On an educational level, Priests for Life is bringing to the public’s attention the ‘D and E’ dismemberment abortion (see www.StopDandE.com).” Father Pavone said. “The abortion debate should not be so abstract that we forget we’re talking about pulling the arms and legs off of babies. To those asking for our vote in November, I ask, do you or do you not think dismemberment should be legal? Every voter should ask the same.”

Priests for Life and Fr. Pavone declare “Beginning of the End” of the HHS Mandate

Monday, July 30th, 2012





FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today regarding the preliminary injunction issued in a lawsuit filed by a private company against the Health and Human Services contraception mandate. The ruling marks the first legal victory over the mandate.

“This decision marks the beginning of the end of the unjust and unconstitutional HHS mandate. Even though the Aug. 1 deadline for compliance is still in effect for organizations like Priests for Life, it’s good news that the suit filed by the owners of Hercules Industries has been successful in holding off, at least temporarily, this mandate that is so clearly a violation of the religious freedom guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the laws of our country. This gives us reason to be optimistic as our own lawsuit progresses.

“But no matter what happens, there is no way we will comply with a law that calls for us to violate our consciences by paying for contraception, abortifacient drugs and sterilization services.”

In Newland vs. Sebelius, the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado ruled on July 27 that the constitutional and statutory rights of the plaintiffs – siblings who own a heating and air conditioning company – would be harmed by enforcement of the HHS mandate. Judge John L. Kane also found that Hercules likely would prevail in its claim that the mandate is a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

In his ruling, the judge noted that Hercules’ owners, William Newland, Paul Newland, James Newland, and Christine Ketterhagen, run their company according to Catholic principles and teachings, even when those religious, ethical and moral teachings impact their profits.

Fr. Pavone added, “Priests for Life is proud to be in the company of the Newlands and so many others who are not willing to set aside their deeply held beliefs, or their legal rights, even when threatened with economic catastrophe. We are confident that our lawsuit, filed Feb. 15, will protect us from the imposition of more than $1 million a year in fines.

“In addition to pressing on with our legal action, Priests for Life will also help once again to organize nationwide rallies for religious freedom, to take place on Saturday, October 20.”

Black Pro-Life Leaders Call for Planned Parenthood to be Held Accountable

Friday, July 27th, 2012

National Black Prolife Coalition
510-225-4055, ext 4

UNION CITY, Calif., July 26, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — The National Black Prolife Coalition expresses heartfelt sympathy to the family of Tonya Reaves — the most recent victim of a botched abortion performed at a Chicago Planned Parenthood facility. Tonya’s death is particularly tragic because this is not Planned Parenthood’s and other abortionists’ first incident killing both mother and child. Abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation, has left a trail of dead women and over 54 million babies in its wake.

Planned Parenthood has long maintained abortion is a safe, just option for women. They claim that keeping it legal will ensure no more women are harmed. However, Ryan Bomberger, Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation disagrees: “Pro-abortion activists like to call abortion “reproductive justice,’ but we can only call this reproductive death. We mourn for the loss of these two lives and the devastation of many more, regardless of race.”

Stephen Broden, senior pastor of Fair Park Bible Fellowship believes “Tonya Reaves death is a tragedy that must be made known across America. This is another example of how Planned Parenthood is a threat to our women, children and ultimately our survival. Their influence and presence must be removed from our community,” he said.

Pro-abortion activists claim that pro-life advocates are using Ms. Reaves tragic death as a means to promote a political agenda. However Catherine Davis, Founder and President of the Restoration Project, finds that idea repugnant: “Tonya Reaves death is not about a political agenda. This is about the healthcare disparities Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers have long inflicted upon Black women all across America. This is about the failure of an organization that holds itself out as a champion of women, to champion reasonable medical care standards for women of color.”

“Abortion is the leading cause of death among Blacks and once again Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, is involved in the death of our women and children. No one has the right to take the life of an innocent human being. It’s time Planned Parenthood be held accountable for the loss of life in its abortion dens,” said Walter B. Hoye II, Founder & President, Issues4Life Foundation.

Rev. Arnold Culbreath, Director of Urban Outreach for Protecting Black Life agrees. “Surely the African-American community will wake up and stop giving Planned Parenthood a pass after seeing Tonya Reaves killed and her unborn baby butchered at their hands,” he said.

“We pray this tragedy awakens the collective conscience of Black America to a wretched, unregulated industry that has profited from the deaths of children and deliberate miseducation of young women” said Dean Nelson, Chairman, Frederick Douglass Foundation.

“We still believe that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” said Alveda King, Founder of King for America. “Tonya’s death is unjust and our prayers go out to Tonya’s family and her now orphaned son, Alvin.”

I am Outraged. I am Incensed. Remember Tonya Reaves

Friday, July 27th, 2012





These two blogs came from my good friend Catherine Davis. You can check out other blogs from her at http://talkaboutitcd.blogspot.com/

I Am Outraged. I Am Incensed. Remember Tonya Reaves.

As I am writing this post and it has been a while since I have posted something, I am outraged, absolutely incensed! I am also so very tired of the duplicity and subterfuge of the abortion industry in general and Planned Parenthood in particular. Planned Parenthood has long used infant and maternal mortality rates of the black community to justify the construction of their abortion dens in urban areas where blacks reside. They have told their foot soldiers to cite historical disparities whenever the black prolife community refers to the numbers of abortions on black women. Call for an end to the disparities they are told, so that they are controlling the conversation. There is one disparity however, they want to make sure quickly dies in the media. There is one disparity they are furiously working to bury. On Friday, July 20, 2012, there was death and mayhem across America. A mad man took the lives of at least 12, and injured 58. But there was more mayhem in America on that same day. A young 24 year old mother, daughter, sister who thought she was having one of the “safest medical procedures provided in the United States and Canada today” died. Her name was Tonya Reaves. Tonya went to the Planned Parenthood on 18 S. Michigan Ave in Chicago and did not return home. Instead she was transported to a hospital where she “died of a hemorrhage and her pregnancy was a contributing factor”. Nowhere was it mentioned that Planned Parenthood’s failure to exercise reasonable medical care was the cause of her death. All across America there is a wake of women who like Tonya, have been reproductively maimed or killed by Planned Parenthood or one of the other many abortionists that hold themselves out as providing safe choices for women. As anti-life forces were urged to do in a Congressional Black Caucus, Pro-Choice Caucus briefing at the United States Capital on May 10, 2012, Mary Mitchell, of the Chicago Sun Times, one of the pro-abortion “friendly” media members, turned the conversation away from the death of Tonya Reaves at the hands of a Planned Parenthood abortionist. Instead of focusing on the lack of reasonable medical care in the abortion industry she began to shift the focus toward the billboards and other education tools the black pro-life community has used to educate about abortion’s genocidal impact in the black community. She shamelessly, while accusing the pro-life community of attempting to make Ms. Reaves our poster child for life, began the fast track of painting Planned Parenthood and abortion as the injured victims. Shame on her and shame on them! Before the Reaves family can even mourn their loss and lay their family member to rest, Planned Parenthood has begun their spin, washing their hands of their negligence and participation in Tonya’s death. This issue is not about choice. It is not about a woman making a “heart wrenching” decision about an extremely private procedure” as Mary wants us to believe. For years now the pro-abortion community has marched, chanted, and screamed when there has been any attempt to regulate abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation. Any attempts to ensure abortionists are giving women the reasonable measure of care we have come to expect for any other surgical procedure are met with resistance and demonstrations. Yet, the 2011 Guttmacher Institute report Facts on Induced Abortion in the United States, stated that “fewer than 0.3% of abortion patients experience a complication that requires hospitalization”. That minimal percentage actually translates into at least 3,000 women requiring hospitalization in each of the years that abortion reached 1.2 million or higher which has been the case since 1977. So in 35 years that would mean more than 100,000 women have been injured. Even if we only counted those injured since the issuance of the 1999 report Guttmacher is citing, we are looking at more than 42,000 women. I wonder who considers that a reasonable number because I certainly don’t. I think the average woman does not know that: “the risk of death associated with abortion increases with the length of pregnancy, from one death for every one million abortions at or before eight weeks to one per 29,000 at 16–20 weeks—and one per 11,000 at 21 or more weeks” and I doubt the abortionist informs the woman of this potentially life impacting fact before he does the procedure. According to Guttmacher about nineteen percent of the approximately 1.2 million abortions each year are performed on women who are sixteen or more weeks pregnant. Each year then we can expect seven to eight deaths of the mother. Again, I do not think this is reasonable, especially for the families whose loved one has died. Let’s keep it real, Planned Parenthood is spitting in our face and calling it rain and they really believe we don’t know the difference. No this is not about choice. This is about the healthcare disparities Planned Parenthood has long inflicted upon black women all across America. This is about the failure of an organization that holds itself out as a champion of women, to champion reasonable health care for women of color. Wake up America. We have genocide within the shores of the nation that was long thought of as the shining light on the hill. We have dressed the genocide up in the clothing of women’s rights while the population control enthusiasts kill our babies, our daughters, our mothers. I am outraged, more than incensed . . .

I am Outraged. I am Incenced Times Two

I received this comment on my most recent blog, I Am Outraged. I Am Incensed, about the death of Tonya Reaves from someone named Kathi: “While this is a very sad death, the number of women who experience complications or die during an abortion procedure are a lot less than the number of women who have complications or die during pregnancy! Amnesty International reports that at least 2 women die EVERY DAY in the US due to pregnancy.“ I have waited to comment so that I would not be flippant with Kathi. I have waited to write because I did not want to do this out of anger. I have spent this time trying to convince myself that Kathi really believes that her comment is somehow relevant to this discussion and she is not just another rabidly pro-abortion advocate that supports the abortion at all costs ideology. And then I received this news from CBS in Chicago: “Reaves had the abortion – formally called a “D and E” or dilation and evacuation procedure – at Planned Parenthood at 18 S. Michigan Ave. at 11 a.m., according to documents. After the procedure, she was suffering bleeding, and a Fire Department ambulance took her to Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 4:30 p.m.” I am just stunned and crushed. For five and one half hours Tonya lay in the Planned Parenthood on 18 S. Michigan in Chicago with her life’s blood pouring out of her. And Planned Parenthood clearly – did -nothing – to save her life. They did not even check her to determine why she was bleeding so profusely. They couldn’t have – because once at the hospital Tonya underwent a second D and E procedure. This means the abortion done by Planned Parenthood was incomplete. Not only had they left parts of Tonya’s baby in her but later the emergency room physician, through a second ultra sound discovered her uterus had been perforated as well, but now it was too late to save her life. Kathi, I cannot imagine the horror Tonya faced as she realized how great the injury she had suffered was. I cannot imagine her thoughts as she slipped away, unable to be resuscitated because Planned Parenthood cared so little for her life that they held her in their abortion den until the lifesaving aid that was being rendered by a leading Trauma unit in Chicago was not enough to bring her back from the brink of death toward which Planned Parenthood pushed her. I cannot imagine that you or anyone else can compare this butchery with the trauma that is sometimes experienced in the natural process of childbirth. I am outraged. I am incensed times two. Substandard medical care is the order of the day with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers– especially when dealing with black women. In their population control and eugenic enthusiasm they routinely injure and sometimes kill women. In their arrogance they believe they can simply change the conversation and none of us will notice the trail of reproductive destruction that is sister to the always death generating practice of abortion. May God have mercy on us if we allow this to continue.

National Funeral Service Friday Morning

Thursday, July 26th, 2012





FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: July 26, 2012

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

STATEN ISLAND, NY — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement about a funeral service planned for tomorrow for an aborted baby.

“On Friday morning, July 27, I will stand proudly with my brothers and sisters of Operation Save America to honor the body of an aborted child for whom we will offer a memorial service in which the public will have an opportunity to participate. We have also arranged for the burial of the child.

“It is not often that we have the bodies of aborted babies. Unfortunately, the act by which their lives are dishonored and their bodies dismembered takes those bodies and discards them with the medical waste.

“But once in a while, we are able to retrieve these bodies. When we do so, we give them the honor that others have denied them. The act of violence that killed them is done in secret; we believe that the act of reparation that honors them should be done in public. The cold-hearted killing was done in darkness; the broken-hearted mourning should be done in the bright light of day.

“We will have an open casket at this memorial service so that people can see the bruised body of this baby. The body is intact, having been killed by prostaglandin abortion, which induces violent contractions that bruise and ultimately kill the child. Seeing the child awakens the conscience to the fact that abortion kills real people, and must be put to an end without further delay.”

This service will occur Friday, July 27, in Charlotte, NC at the intersection of Trade and Tryon at 10 a.m. ET.

“Another Wrongful Death In The Name Of Women’s Rights,” says Dr. King

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012





This past Friday Tonya Reaves, 24, died from a hemorrhage after an abortion at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Chicago. While we are deeply saddened by her senseless death, we are also deeply saddened to report that Ms. Reaves joins the ranks of perhaps of hundreds if not thousands of women harmed by legal abortion.

Many people may think that this is a rare occurrence but nothing can be further from the truth. Botched abortions happen all the time and yes some even result in death. Unfortunately, the abortion industry is so under regulated that many of the complications from abortions go unreported or are reported without adding the cause of abortion in the component.

Ms. Reaves unfortunate death is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. The CBS Chicago article states, “Tonya Reaves, 24, died late Friday night from a hemorrhage, with a cervical dilation and evacuation, as well as an intrauterine pregnancy as contributing causes, according to the medical examiner’s office. People, she didn’t die because she was pregnant, she died because she was butchered. Thus terminology may be offensive to some, but her death is more offensive.

“She died after she’d had an abortion at Planned Parenthood at 18 S. Michigan Ave,” according to the medical examiner’s office.”

“Her death was ruled an accident.” Accident, as in they messed up and killed her?

And what did Planned Parenthood have to say about her death?

In a written statement, Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO Carole Brite said “We were shocked and saddened upon learning of a tragic development at a nearby hospital. Our hearts go out to the loved ones of this patient.

“While legal abortion services in the United States have a very high safety record, a tragedy such as this is devastating to loved ones and we offer our deepest sympathies. Planned Parenthood of Illinois cares deeply about the health and safety of each and every patient. We do not publicly discuss private patient matters and we follow HIPAA laws that forbid the disclosure of patient information.”

But will Planned Parenthood be held responsible? Probably not. Should they? Absolutely.

As Operation Rescue writes in their article, “Abortion deaths like this are completely avoidable. When a woman bleeds to death after an abortion, it is usually an indication of error on the part of the abortionist coupled with a delay in calling for emergency assistance. Planned Parenthood should be held accountable,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “Our heartfelt prayers go out to the victim’s family at this time of tragic loss.”

Carol Everett, an ex. abortionist speaks out in Bloodmoney and tells of the many incidents of botched abortions and the industries lack of care for the safety of the women. Their main goal was to make money, laws and rules be damned.

The mainstream media doesn’t report many similar cases, do the abortion lobby continues to get away with murder.

Only when something as horrific as the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who ran an abortion clinic so macabre that it was called a “House of Horrors” will the media report on it. But check out a pro-life website like Operation Rescue and you will see report after report of botched abortions.

We must start demanding that regulatory agencies start doing their jobs and inspect abortion clinics and if they are found in violation of the law, shut them down.

Women need to be protected from predators that are more interested in the almighty dollar than they are about the safety of their patients.

For years Silent No More Awareness and other concerned citizens have been reporting about the harmful effects of abortion and unnatural birth control remedies. Breast cancer, strokes, heart attacks and other maladies such as the serious and fatal injuries and ultimately deaths are all part of the lies behind the masks of false compassion the abortionists wear.

More civil wrongs in the name of women’s rights. God forbid.

And They Want You To Believe That Abortions Are Safe And Rare!

Teaching Children Propaganda?

Friday, July 20th, 2012





Chuck Norris is in the news along with Dan Cathy of Chick-fil-A; both charged with promoting propaganda against the homosexual lobby. Both Chuck and Chick-fil-A have been broadly admired over the years; Chuck for his popular Walker, Texas Ranger series and karate and exercise regimen; and Chick-fil-A for family values backed up by sensational chicken menus sold only Monday through Saturday, closed on Sunday so employees can spend time with their families and worship God if they so choose.

Chuck is concerned that President Obama’s homosexual agenda will impact Boy Scouts of America. In a recent article Chuck said of Boy Scouts of America national board member and Ernst & Young CEO James Turley.

“But is Turley working on his own initiative, or has the White House prodded him with perks and favors?” Norris speculates. “Is it a coincidence that Turley came out swinging against the BSA’s century-old policy to ban gays from leadership and that he has such close affiliations with the pro-gay Obama Administration?”

The Girl Scouts of America has already been affected by the culture of death with the influences of the pro-abortion agenda and let’s not forget that the Girl Scouts of America recently ruled that a boy could be a Girl Scout.

As reported in a Baptist Press interview with Dan Cathy, “Some have opposed the company’s support of the traditional family. ”Well, guilty as charged,” said Cathy when asked about the company’s position.

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.

“We operate as a family business … our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that,” Cathy emphasized.

“We intend to stay the course,” he said. “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

Why is it that when family values are brought to the table, the outcry against truth is so loud? Propaganda is defined as the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person.

The propaganda debate is not limited to the United States as reported by The Journal in Great Britain, “The “shadow” health minister of Great Britain’s Labour Party said of a Christian group that has made over 50 presentations to school children on abortion, “I think it is very wrong and the Government needs to step in because we can’t teach children at an impressionable age this sort of propaganda.” Diane Abbott criticized the organization Lovewise for telling children at mostly faith-based schools about the abortion/breast cancer link, the abortion/depression link, and other abortion consequences, “Sexual health education is supposed to be based on facts. These people are just pedaling bigotry.”

The prophet Isaiah said it best when he said, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:20

Winning the War

Thursday, July 19th, 2012





The LA Times lamented recently about what they consider to be attacks on the pro-abortion lobby. The article, “The war on abortion rights,” is partially accurate in stating that the pro-life movement is on the attack against the abortion lobby. This is war and we must continue to engage the seemingly unusual weapons of love and truth to set the captives free. But this is not just a war on abortion rights but a war between good and evil and can only be won on our knees as I blogged the other day.

For example a few days ago a Priests for Life pastoral team walked the halls of Congress in support of the fetal pain capable act that would ban abortions in D.C. after 20 weeks except to save the life of the mother. Many prayers were said for this effort and the good news is the bill is out of committee and heading to the House for a vote.

We are winning the war as more pro-life legislation has been passed across the country this year than in previous years. But even as we work our way to victory, thousands of innocent babies are killed every day before they have the chance to take their first breath. The numbers are staggering, not just in America but all over the world.

So, pray my brothers and sisters. Pray for the unborn, pray for the mothers struggling with their decisions to choose life, pray for the staffs that work in abortion centers all over the world, pray for the abortionists that they will repent and ask for forgiveness for all the lives they have taken, and last but not least pray for healing of our land and mercy from our Heavenly Father. Amen.
