The 28th undercover recording released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life demonstrates the dire need for a federal law protecting children in the womb from abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Southwestern Women’s Surgery in Dallas, Texas is another abortion mill performing abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy on healthy babies who could live outside the womb if given the chance. In this recording the undercover caller probes the abortion worker by asking what would happen if she had to postpone her abortion beyond the 22-week Texas limit and is told that she would simply cross the state line from Texas to their sister clinic located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life issued the following statement today:

“By crossing the border from one state to another, a woman is able to obtain an elective abortion into the third trimester of pregnancy. Their sister clinic is the notorious Southwestern Women’s Options, which earlier in this investigation scheduled an undercover caller posing as 30 weeks pregnant for a third trimester abortion, simply because ‘life happens’ and having another child would put undue added strain on her marriage.

“As shocking as it is for the American people to learn about the prevalence of late-term abortions, it is equally disturbing that the abortion industry is capitalizing on the lack of a federal mandate to protect pre-born babies in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

Contact your Senators and urge them to support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act so that every baby over 20 weeks old in the womb is protected throughout this nation.”

Alan Sears will be honored at National Memorial for the Pre-Born

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Alan Sears, founder and former CEO and general counsel of Alliance Defending Freedom, will receive the 2018 National Pro-Life Recognition Award during the National Memorial for the Pre-Born on Friday, Jan. 19 at DAR Constitution Hall.

“Each year, this award is given to someone who has served the pro-life movement in an exemplary way,” said Father Frank Pavone, President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, which bestows the annual honor along with Priests for Life. “Alan’s service to the unborn is unquantifiable.”

At the helm of ADF, Mr. Sears worked to protect women, the unborn and those who stand for life, and led the charge in an ongoing battle to expose and defund Planned Parenthood.

“I am deeply humbled and honored to be selected to receive the National Pro-Life Recognition Award,” Mr. Sears said. “I will be accepting it on behalf of the entire Alliance Defending Freedom team, which has stood with me in the great battles that determine the future of freedom, of life and of family.”

The 24th annual National Memorial for the Pre-Born, the nation’s premiere interdenominational service, will take place from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Friday, with a Catholic Mass beginning at 7:30. The service, held every year on the morning of the March for Life, brings together clergy from dozens of denominations.

Special guests this year will be Jason and David Benham, and Christian recording and YouTube artist Joyce Im Bartholomew. Father Pavone, who is also the national director of Priests for Life, will preach the sermon.
The National Memorial is sponsored every year by the National Pro-Life Religious Council and Priests for Life. Co-sponsoring organizations this year include the Jubilee Campaign Law of Life Project; Life Issues Institute; City Life Center, Minneapolis, MN, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) and Solidarity Health Share.

Tickets are not required and large groups can be easily accommodated at DAR Hall, which is located at 1776 D Street NW (at 18th Street) in Washington.

Happy New Year!

2018 Happy New YearDear Friends,

As we leave 2017 behind, let us do so with thanksgiving for God’s grace for what has passed and what is coming in 2018. As I write this message, let me encourage you with the words of my late grandfather, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr.: “Thank God for what we have left.”

The year 2018 will certainly have its share of pitfalls and pinnacles. How will you navigate the continuing steps of your life’s journey?

Here’s a special invitation for you to “join the movement” for life.

As you may or may not know, with President Donald John Trump keeping many of his Prolife Campaign Promises, there is great hope for saving the lives of our unborn babies and bringing love and healing to their mothers and families. That’s really something to look forward to in 2018.

On the Civil Rights for the Unborn (CRU) front, we are taking the airwaves for life; in 2017 alone there were interviews with national TV shows, with national and local radio stations, print media as well as internet papers; over 130 interviews. Look for more in 2018.

We’re continuing several projects; working to defund Planned Parenthood, and networking with several pro-life leaders and organization to pass pro-life bills in various states, and probably most importantly we’ve been involved with various prayer groups for the support of President Trump and his administration and for advancements in the pro-life movement.

CRU is also supporting two upcoming pro-life movies; ORDER OF RIGHTS and ROE VS WADE. With their onset, we pray that many will be encouraged to fight for the unborn with more vigor than ever before.

My new book, KING TRUTHS, is scheduled to be released on January 16, 2018 on Amazon. You can pre-order today at http://a.co/6mk8gDr.

Then there’s the new music album Tender Moments Alone With God being released this month. You’ve heard the saying that “music is the food of life.” With this album we hope your heart will be blessed for LIFE!

On a personal note, we lost close family members and friends in 2017; and we mourn their passing. Yet we are not without hope. If you have experienced similar losses, or any disappointments in 2017, our prayers for your healing and restoration go out to you.

Again, the new book KING TRUTHS, and my new music project TENDER MOMENTS ALONE WITH GOD are ready. As part of my ministry at Alveda King Ministries, they are being released during the New Year Season with you in mind; we pray that you will be healed, refreshed and enlightened by these messages.

Finally, as we leave the joys and sorrows, the triumphs and challenges of 2017 behind to enter the promises and challenges of 2018, may God bless you and richly sustain you in the days to come!

We pray this song will bless you. The Keys Song!

Evangelist Alveda C. King

Abortion Through 24 Weeks at Infamous New Jersey Mill

TITUSVILLE, FL – It’s all about choice at Metropolitan Medical Associates in New Jersey.

As part of its series of undercover calls to abortion businesses across the nation, Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico today released a call from the Englewood, N.J., facility that does abortions through 24 weeks for healthy mothers carrying healthy babies.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Bud and Tara Shaver, founders of Abortion Free New Mexico, released the following statement about the call:

“Metropolitan Medical Associates in Englewood, N.J. is another abortion mill in America that is performing late-term abortions on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies through 24 weeks of pregnancy. When the undercover caller clarifies, to make absolutely sure that she can have the abortion even though she and the baby are healthy, the abortion worker tells her that ‘It just has to be something that you want.’

“In too many states across this nation these abortions occur daily and are killing babies who can feel pain and are viable human beings. It is imperative that congressional leaders take these facts into account and vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in order to protect these helpless babies.”

To hear all the calls, go to PriestsForLife.org/LateTermAbortion. To contact your senator about supporting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, go to StopAbortionNow.org

In 2009, Metropolitan Medical paid $1.9 million in an out-of-court settlement brought by a woman who suffered a botched abortion there and later had to undergo a hysterectomy. On the premises, state health inspectors found a rusted crochet hook used to remove IUDs, as well as dirty forceps and a quarter-inch of dirt and debris under the examining tables. At the time, the business was performing 10,000 abortions a year.
