(From L-R, Tonya Reaves, Jennifer Morbelli, Marla, and Christin Gilbert)

As many of you may already know, another woman has died at the hands of an abortionist. Her name was Jennifer McKenna-Morbelli. Also dead is her 33-week-old preborn daughter, Madison Leigh. Both died at the hands of late-term abortionists LeRoy Carhart at Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Germantown, MD.

You can read a detailed account of what happened at Jill Stanek’s blog HERE.

Since news of this recent killing many in the pro-life community is calling for an intense investigation into her death and the practices of LeRoy Carhart. Among those calling for an investigation is our own Fr. Frank Pavone. HERE is what he had to say.

Jennifer is not the first woman that Carhart has killed. In 2005 he performed an abortion on Christin Gilbert what resulted in her death. Operation Rescue tried to get justice for Christin but was unsuccessful. Read her story HERE.

Although the abortion industry likes to say that abortions should be rare and safe, they are neither. Priests for Life has joined forces with Operation Rescue and Life Dynamics to bring attention to the many deaths of women who have had abortions in a new project at safeandlegal.com

All this news comes on the heels of the death of Tonya Reaves who was killed after a botched second- trimester abortion at a Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Chicago. The National Black Prolife Coalition has worked tirelessly to bring attention to this terrible tragedy. Just recently the Thomas More Society, acting on behalf of the Pro-Life Action League, has formally requested that the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation investigate the death of Tonya Reaves, the 24-year-old who died last July 20 after suffering a Chicago Planned Parenthood abortion. Read more HERE.

Much is happening in the pro-life world. Many states are passing pro-life legislation with 2012 recording record numbers of bills passed.

Abortion is being exposed! We will abolish abortion!

All the lies that the abortion industry has been telling are coming unraveled; are dying. As my Uncle M.L. said, “A lie cannot live.” In the end, truth will always prevail over lies, light over darkness, and life over death.

NAACP & Sanger: Birth Control Propaganda Starting in Harlem

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Concerned Women of America Logo

Dear Friends, please read the note and link below sent to me by a concerned young prayer warrior.

Spread the Word, speak the truth, in Agape love.

“Dear Dr. King, I saw how NAACP is threatening to sue LifeNews.com and Bomberger, and I decided to do research on NAACP, thinking, surely they were pro-life. And although Angela Davis, who seemed connected to the NAACP didn’t like Sanger, W.E. DuBois did. And he was a co-founder of the NAACP.”

“I’m a bit surprised, and this article I’m posting a link to, has evidence of the connection to the Urban League, NAACP, and some of our most celebrated leaders, Mary McCleod Bethune who helped Sanger to reach out to the Black community. Even if it was unconscious, almost a 100 years later, it’s hurtful to see.”

CNN requesting stories from post-abortive mothers… spread the word!

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

SPACERCNN iReport LogoCNN writes:

Have you had an abortion?

Forty years ago this year, the Supreme Court decided the historic Roe v. Wade case regarding whether women in the United States are legally permitted to have abortions. The result is that abortion cannot be legally banned, but states can regulate abortion procedures starting at the end of the pregnancy’s first trimester.

As much as abortion gets debated politically, rarely do we read stories of women who have chosen to terminate a pregnancy. We want to hear from anyone who has had first-hand experience with abortion. How difficult was the decision? How do you feel about it now? How did it change your life?

We understand that abortion is a sensitive subject, and all submissions will be treated with discretion. You don’t have to show yourself on camera. But feel free to write your thoughts, record your voice, or make a video telling us about your story.

You could be part of a story for CNN.com.

Smiles of Victory

“The joy of The Lord is your strength.” – Nehemiah 8:10

Walter Hoye at NAACP Protest

Our good friend Rev. Walter Hoye of www.issues4life.org and a youth for life took a moment at the NAACP Image Awards Protest during Black History Month to show the world a victory smile.

Black Prolife leaders from across the country led the protest in LA on February 1, 2013. The night before, the National Black Prolife Coalition and Students for Life hosted a Maafa21.com screening at the University of Southern California.

Bryan with YouthsThe youth in the picture with Walter and the hundreds of thousands of youth who attend the walks and marches are proof positive that we are winning because God hears the cries of the children and the repentant prayers of the elders.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. – 2 Chronicles 7:14

In light of recent developments, including the NAACP exposé and uncovering of the truth that abortions and contraceptives kill babies and their mothers, we thank God that the truth is getting out.

The NAACP doesn’t like the light of truth being shined on them that they will go to any length to stop us as evident by the recent threat of legal action against Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation, a bullying tactive in an attempt to silence someone who is simply telling the truth.

In the battle to defund planned parenthood and recall abortion, we are always encouraged when the young people join the fight.

GERMANTOWN, MD — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is helping to lead a prayer vigil and press conference this morning at the site of abortionist LeRoy Carhart’s late-term killing center here.

Carhart performed a 33-week abortion this past week on Jennifer Leigh Morbelli, 29, who died after the procedure, along with her daughter, Madison Leigh. Her death is being investigated. A witness says she developed complications, and Carhart could not be contacted to take care of her.

Fr. Frank will call this morning for swift action on the part of the state of Maryland to not only investigate this death but also to stop Carhart from killing children and their mothers. Fr. Frank will also ask every priest across the nation to offer two Masses: one for the repose of the soul of Jennifer and her baby Madison, and another for the conversion of abortionist LeRoy Carhart.

STATEN ISLAND, NY — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today regarding the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI:

“We are, of course, all surprised today by the announcement of the Pope that he will resign at the end of the month. Popes have the authority to do this, of course, though it has rarely been exercised.

“We view the Pope’s action here in a positive light, as an expression of his concern and love for the Church. He wants the Church to have a Pope who can fulfill his role with the strength and vigor that the office requires.

“My own interactions with Pope Benedict have been in the arena of his defense of human life, and we at Priests for Life thank him in particular for the ways in which he has continued to announce and implement the Church’s pro-life teachings. Those who wish to send the Holy Father a message of appreciation and promise of prayers can do so on a special form we will post at www.priestsforlife.org.”

Black History Month Tribute: Strength, Persistence, Talent

Black History Month

Contributor & author: Marilyn M. Singleton, MD, JD, (San Francisco) board-certified anesthesiologist, professor, lawyer and Association of American Physicians and Surgeons member (see bio at bottom of release)

Interview – Contact Dr. Singleton directly at marilynmsingleton@gmail.com, 510-421-5800, http://www.aapsonline.org/, (reporters and journalists welcome!)

For permission to publish this article (word count: 672), contact AngelPublicity@aol.com for a prompt response

Author/contributor: Marilyn M. Singleton, M.D., J.D.

Black history in American has certainly had its ups and downs. It’s troubling when, for political theater, those who should know better fail to emphasize the inspirational stories that highlight the strengths of blacks and the humanity of whites. While it is undeniable that cruelty and suffering are part of this country’s history, at some point it is counterproductive to paint blacks as weak victims of the white man’s callousness.

There were always free blacks in America (including my family). Indeed, in 1641, Mathias De Sousa, an African indentured servant who came from England with Lord Baltimore, was elected to Maryland’s General Assembly. The first census of 1790 counted 19 per cent black Americans, 10 per cent of whom were free.

Black Americans served on both sides during the Revolutionary War. The British promised freedom to slaves belonging to Patriot masters who served. Because of his manpower shortages, George Washington lifted the ban on black enlistment in the Continental Army in January 1776, creating his so-called “mixed multitude,” which was 15 per cent black. Economist Walter Williams is so correct that necessity can overcome prejudice.

Nestled in the back of some folks’ minds was (is?) the notion that blacks were not as intelligent as whites. They certainly couldn’t have had the smarts to be doctors. James Derham (c. 1757-1802?), born a slave in Philadelphia, proved the naysayers wrong. He was the first known black American physician, although not professionally trained in medical school. As was common at the time, physicians were trained in apprenticeships. Young Derham was fortunate that his three early masters were physicians who taught him to read and write.

Derham’s third owner taught the young teen how to mix and administer medicines. After this owner, who had been arrested during the war for being a Tory, died in prison, Derham was sold to a British officer, and he served as a doctor to soldiers. After the war, he became the property of a Scottish physician (appropriately named Dr. Love) from New Orleans, who hired him to work as a medical assistant and apothecary.

By 1783, Derham quickly saved enough money to buy his freedom, and he set up his own medical practice in New Orleans. Derham, who spoke English, French, and Spanish, was a popular and highly regarded doctor, who treated both black and white patients. By age 30, Derham earned more than $3,000 annually.

Derham’s medical paper on his success in treating diphtheria caught the attention of Benjamin Rush, a physician who signed the Declaration of Independence, served as surgeon general of the Continental Army, and has been called “the father of American medicine.” Rush invited Derham to Philadelphia in 1788 and was so impressed that he encouraged him to stay. There, Derham became an expert in throat diseases and in the relationship between weather and disease.

In 1789, Derham returned to New Orleans, where he saved many yellow fever victims. He stopped practicing medicine in 1801, when the new city regulations required a formal medical degree to be considered a doctor. Nothing is known of his whereabouts after 1802.

The first university-trained black American physician was James McCune Smith, born in 1813 to slave parents who were emancipated by New York law. Despite his scholastic achievements at the Free African School of New York, he was denied admission to American medical schools. When he was 19 years old, the Glasgow Emancipation Society helped Smith enroll in Scotland’s University of Glasgow. He received his B.A. degree in 1835 and his M.D. degree in 1837. A skilled debater and lecturer, Smith was a founding member of the New York Statistics Society in 1852, and was elected as an early member of the American Geographic Society.

The first American medical degree was conferred on David J. Peck, born circa 1826 into a free black family in Pittsburgh, Pa. In 1846, after studying two years with a private physician, he enrolled in Rush Medical College and graduated in 1847. Peck practiced medicine in Philadelphia for 2 years before moving to Central America to start a homeland for free blacks in Nicaragua.

Thank you, doctors, for paving the way for my grandfather, my father, and me.

King, Pavone, Gardner appalled by rising death counts on NAACP, CBC watch

Friday, February 8th, 2013

SPACERLeRoy CarhartAnother woman and baby dead by legal abortion and African American and other religious prolife leaders are outraged as the NAACP, The Congressional Black Caucus, many in the Christian and political community and others remain silent on the Reproductive Genocide issue.

“The death count keeps rising. Why aren’t our highly visible “leaders” protesting?” asks Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life and post-abortive spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign.

“It has happened again. Another mother has been killed by so-called ‘safe and legal’ abortion,” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “It happens constantly, in fact, but the abortion industry usually succeeds in covering it up. And even when they don’t, the rest of us succeed in keeping it relatively quiet. Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart began an abortion procedure a few days ago on a woman who was about 33 weeks pregnant. These abortions are legal, and he performs them at his killing center in Germantown, MD. Yesterday, she developed complications. The abortionist could not be reached. She was taken to the emergency room by private vehicle, and she died,” Pavone explained.

“Women of all ages, shapes, sizes and ethnicities are dying by abortion,” added King who cited the recent death by abortion of Tonya Reaves in Chicago. “My great-great grandfather , Dr. Adam Daniel Williams, a pastor original NAACP founder would be appalled to know that mothers and children are being denied liberty and life at the hands of the abortion/contraceptives industry. We must RECALL ABORTION now.”

Day Gardner, founder of the National Black Pro-Life Union laments, “This recent death adds to the chilling reports of reproductive genocide in America. why is the NAACP silent… again? As a child, I thought the NAACP to be a super hero organization; an organization that would fight racism down to its very core — and like a super hero — it would always stand for truth and justice…fighting boldly for civil rights and freedom for all black people.”

“Apparently, there was some fine print in there that said — except for those children who are too small to defend themselves — we will allow their civil rights to be violated,” said Gardner.

“What bothers me most is the NAACP is very quick to recognize racism everywhere else except the one place that truly affects all of us. Black women and their unborn children are targeted by the abortion industry while the NAACP looks the other way,” Gardner concluded.

It would seem that the National Black Prolife Coalition is striking a serious nerve and a serious chord in their efforts to expose the blatant Reproductive Genocide Movement in America. When Ryan Bomberger posted an add calling out the National Association for the Abortion of Colored People on his websites, the NAACP squealed real loud, even going to the point of calling their attorneys to apply scare tactics to charge Ryan to back down. The NAACP was also shocked by the aggressive prayer protest hosted by Dr. Johnny Hunter, Pastor Stephen Broden, Rev. Walter Hoye, and other Black leaders of the National Black Prolife Coalition who appeared with local leaders at the February 1, 2013 NAACP Image Awards to demand that the NAACP break ties with the abortion and contraceptives industry, headed up by Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider. The leaders also demanded that the NAACP break ties with the homosexual marriage campaign and return to those values that are life affirming for colored people.

“There really is a National Alliance, Campaign or Association for the Abortion of Colored People. This force to be reckoned with includes Planned Parenthood, the NAACP, The Congressional Black Caucus, the abortion supporting political powers that be, and unfortunately the Christian pastors of America who for the most part are watching this debacle play out from the sidelines,” said Alveda King.

“Since 1973, over 55 million babies have been legally aborted – which means slaughtered or killed – in America. Black babies make up nearly one third of the deaths, which is Reproductive Genocide in that the living African American population in America is estimated to be around 13%. Add to these startling figures the deaths and serious injuries of women who are victims of the supposedly “safe, legal and rare” abortions and harmful, invasive contraceptives that the Alliance for the Abortion of Colored People want to keep ramming down our throats while they keep laughing at us all the way to the bank, filling their coffers at the expense of the blood shed by our babies and our women.

“Enough is enough already! Too many babies are dead; too many women are hurt, suffering or dead by acts of abortion. If people really want to advance colored people, they will help the least of these rediscover the lost values that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of during his lifetime. They will help colored people and all people discover purpose in life. They will help people find jobs, and finish their education. They will recall abortion. They will own up to the duplicities that they attempt to cover up with deceptive ad campaigns that promise to help us when all the time they keep killing us.

“Pray that the voices against this injustice will increase, will grow stronger, and that America will wake up before it is too late,” King concluded.

Father Frank Pavone: The Silence Ends Today

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: February 8, 2013

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the death of a young woman during a late-term abortion at the Germantown, Md., clinic of LeRoy Carhart.

“It has happened again. Another mother has been killed by so-called ‘safe and legal’ abortion. It happens constantly, in fact, but the abortion industry usually succeeds in covering it up. And even when they don’t, the rest of us succeed in keeping it relatively quiet.

“That has to change today.

“Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart began an abortion procedure a few days ago on a woman who was about 33 weeks pregnant. These abortions are legal, and he performs them at his killing center in Germantown, MD. Yesterday, she developed complications. The abortionist could not be reached. She was taken to the emergency room by private vehicle, and she died.

“Three things need to happen here. First, the state of Maryland has to shut down Carhart’s killing business. Second, every person who cares about this needs to spread the word immediately about this tragedy, to awaken the consciences of our neighbors. This includes pastors speaking out about the harm abortion does, and it includes all of us telling the stories of those harmed and killed by abortion.

“Third, we need to redouble our efforts to mobilize people in the pro-life cause. If this latest tragedy isn’t enough evidence that the time to end abortion is now, then what is?”

“No longer will we allow these women to remain unknown to the American public,” Father Pavone said. “The silence ends today.”

The NAACP Threatens Legal Action Against The Radiance Foundation

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

SPACERCIVIL-WRONG

By The Radiance Foundation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington (Feb 6, 2013) The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) is falsely accusing The Radiance Foundation and its chief creative officer, Ryan Bomberger of “trademark infringement” over an ad campaign that exposes the NAACP’s pro-abortion position.

In response, Radiance and Bomberger, who is black, has asked a federal court to declare that the First Amendment protects their exercise of free speech and that their speech does not infringe on any of the NAACP’s trademarks or other rights. The lawsuit does not seek any damages.

Bomberger has written for several years about the NAACP’s pro-abortion actions, satirically referring to the organization as the “National Association for the Abortion of Colored People.”

“It is ironic that a black man is being sued by the nation’s oldest civil rights group for exercising his most basic civil right—the freedom of speech,” said Bomberger. “This threat of legal action from the NAACP is nothing more than a multi-million dollar organization’s attempt to bully someone who’s simply telling the truth. Our inner-cities are crumbling, two-parent married families barely exist, 72.3 percent of our children are born into homes without fathers, and the NAACP wants to silence me for pointing out its support of abortion.”

Planned Parenthood co-sponsors the NAACP’s annual conventions, and the NAACP has shown its support of the nation’s largest abortion chain by frequently defending it.

Former NAACP President Julian Bond once spoke at a dinner for NARAL and praised the fact that black women have high abortion rates.

Sixty percent of viable black pregnancies are aborted in New York City, the home of NARAL and Planned Parenthood. Statistics show that more black babies are aborted in New York City than are born alive: 1,489 black babies are aborted for every 1,000 born alive.

To educate the public, Bomberger, an adoptee and adoptive father, created the www.TooManyAborted.com abortion awareness campaign. The public ad campaign was the first to expose the eugenic racism that gave birth to Planned Parenthood and the tragic alliance that exists between the nation’s oldest civil rights group and the nation’s abortion giant.

Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorney Charles M. Allen with the Glen Allen, Va. firm Goodman, Allen & Filetti PLLC filed Friday in U.S. District Court in The Radiance Foundation v. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for the Eastern District of Virginia, Norfolk Division.

“The Radiance Foundation has no intentions of being silenced by those who disagree with the facts,” Bomberger declares.
