Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and a plaintiff in Priests for Life’s lawsuit challenging the HHS mandate, issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Hobby Lobby v. Burwell.

“The Obama administration has repeatedly shown itself to be on the wrong side of religious freedom, on the wrong side of the Constitution, and on the wrong side of America. Today’s decision demonstrates that once again. Citizens, who have religious freedom individually, do not lose it when they act collectively. Today’s decision takes our nation in the right direction.

“But the Supreme Court, while correctly deciding that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act protects the religious freedom of the Green family and others who own their own businesses, does not resolve the problem that religious groups have with the so-called ‘accommodation.’ In the government’s view, that accommodation should satisfy our objections. But the ‘accommodation’ still requires a kind of cooperation that our faith does not allow. The Hobby Lobby decision only emphasizes the urgency and importance of pursuing Priests for Life’s own appeal against the HHS mandate.

“Mr. David Green, CEO of Hobby Lobby has stated, ‘As our Hobby Lobby case represents the concerns of businesses, so the Priests for Life case represents the concerns of the religious non-profit groups. Together, we stand against this injustice, and for the law of God.”

The text of today’s decision carries the following statement in the syllabus, which expresses exactly what we have been saying all along: “It is not for the Court to say that the religious beliefs of the plaintiffs are mistaken or unreasonable.”

“Religious freedom rights are human rights and the only way one can lose them is to cease being human. Priests for Life will continue to fight the Obama administration’s oppressive and unjust attempt to suppress religious liberty.”

Dr. Alveda King, full time Director of African American outreach for Priests for Life, plaintiff in Priests for Life’s lawsuit against the HHS mandate, and author of the new family book King Rules said of today’s decision –

“No one should have to deny God to obey a bureaucratic mandate – not in America. The Court has recognized that we are all free to worship God as we see fit and that we don’t lose that freedom when we build a business. This should apply fully to non-profits as well. The Secretary of Health and Human Services is not above the Lord.”

Bryan Kemper, Youth Outreach Director for Priests for Life, commented on the Hobby Lobby decision as well with the following statement:

“Today we celebrate freedom; we celebrate this ruling handed down by the Supreme Court in favor of religious freedom. SCOTUS has given us hope today as they upheld the rights of Americans to be free from the tyranny and oppression of our government when it comes to our faith.

“The Obama administration tried to force Hobby Lobby’s owners to violate their consciences and faith with the HHS mandate, an intrinsic evil that would force Americans to pay for abortion causing drugs. We at Stand True and Priests for Life celebrate the Court’s affirmation of Hobby Lobby’s religious rights and patiently await a ruling in our case.”

Fr. Frank Pavone Cheers Supreme Court’s McCullen v. Coakley Decision – “A Victory for Free Speech”

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, applauded today’s unanimous Supreme Court decision declaring Massachusetts’s law prohibiting pro-lifers from coming within 35 feet of an abortion clinic to be unconstitutional.

“The bubble zone of government imposed silence around abortion clinics has burst,” Fr. Pavone declared. “Today’s decision is a huge rip in the veil with which the abortion lobby has tried to cloak the truth about what abortion is and what abortion does to women. And the truth is that abortion destroys lives – physically and emotionally.

“The Supreme Court has struck a victory for free speech, for the Constitution, and for women and their babies.”

Fr. Pavone added, “I was happy to speak with Eleanor McCullen the other night in regard to this case and look forward to continuing to stand with her and so many other activists around the country who go to these abortion facilities day in and day out.

Alveda King, niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and full-time director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, stated, “It was wrong for governments to protect segregationists who denied the rights of others and denied the truth of equality. It’s wrong for governments today to protect abortionists who deny the rights of babies and deny the truth about abortion to women. The truth will not be ‘bubbled out.’ Let my people go!”

Bryan Kemper, Priests for Life Youth Outreach Director, said of today’s ruling, “The SCOTUS decision to strike down the Massachusetts bubble zone is a victory with great impact for pro-life youth. More and more youth are joining the fight to end abortion every day and outreach to abortion mills is an important aspect of this battle.”

Priests for Life will issue a more detailed statement about this decision after having analyzed it more fully.

Juneteenth, Civil Rights Anniversary, Independence Day: Get on Board for Life!

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Civil Righs Begin in the Womb

Every year on June 19th, African-Americans celebrate “Juneteenth,” the anniversary of the day slavery was abolished in Texas in 1865.

Two centuries later, we have yet to connect the dots between the denial of African-Americans’ human rights through slavery to the denial of unborn children’s human rights through abortion. There is definitely a parallel between the Dred Scott and Roe v. Wade decisions.

June 19th is “Juneteenth,” marking the day in 1865 when two and a half years later word finally got to a group of slaves in Texas that they were free.

Yes, that was more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed by President Lincoln.

This wryly historic date is celebrated around the country today. While often dwarfed by the following July 4 celebrations, the event has all the trappings of a 4th of July party; and with good reason.

Independence and emancipation are very similar. We just had two parts of the country, and at different times, both with opposing beliefs, yet with varying people groups and ethnicities, fighting for freedom in different ways. But freedom for everybody ends up being the same.

And lest we forget, this year “sandwiched in” between Juneteenth and Independence Day will be July 2, the 50th Anniversary of the US Civil Rights Act. Let’s remember to stand against the harmful impact of abortion and carcinogenic birth control/fertility blockers that kill babies and their mothers. FREE THE BABIES! Let them live; it’s their civil right!

As Director of African American Outreach and a member of the National Black ProLife Coalition I get to work with some very special people who have devoted their lives to the abolishment of abortion. Two such people are my good friends Walter Hoye, II and Ryan Bomberger.

I’d like to share a blog from Walter and graphics designed by Ryan:

2014 JuneteenthLESSON: “The Negro Is The Key Of The Situation”

“The passion of selfishness, murder and rebellion are fired by slavery; the physical strength of rebellion is found less in the attenuated arm of the slaveholder, than in the sinewy arm of steel, which wields, without wages, the hoe and spade on the plantation. All this is plain. The very stomach of this rebellion is the Negro in the condition of a slave. Arrest that hoe in the hands of the Negro, and you smite rebellion in the very seat of its life. Change the status of the slave from bondage to freedom, and you change the rebels into loyal citizens. The Negro is the key of the situation, the pivot upon which the whole rebellion turns.” — Frederick Douglass, Douglass’ Monthly, July, 1861 11

“This war, disguise it as they may, is virtually nothing more or less than perpetual slavery against universal freedom. The American people and Government at Washington may refuse to recognize it for a time, but the inexorable logic of events will force it upon them in the end, that the war now being waged in this land is a war for and against slavery.” — Frederick Douglass 12

“Sound policy, not less than humanity, demands the instant liberation of every slave in the rebel states.” — Frederick Douglass, Douglass’ Monthly, July, 1861 13

BIG ABORTION is a business. A BILLION DOLLAR business. 14 A business that views women and babies as commodities. A business where highly trained and licensed physicians and nurses, clean and well equipped medical facilities represent a drain on profits. A business where complying with the same public health and safety requirements as other surgical facilities negatively impacts the bottom line. A business where the “SUPER COIL“, a device inserted into a woman’s uterus, comprised of plastic razors spring loaded into a ball, coated into a gel, so that they would remain closed until the woman’s body temperature melts the gel, releasing the razors to cut up the mother’s fetus into pieces small enough to be expelled violently from her body is a good idea. 15 A business where regular, legally mandated unannounced inspections by the Department of Health Services only serve as barriers to women seeking abortions and is viewed as bad policy. 16 A business where a FATAL HEART ATTACK immediately following an abortion procedure is a therapeutic complication. 17 A business where a woman can bleed for over five hours after a botched abortion procedure before emergency services are called, is still in business. 18 A business where an abortion procedure can be botched and blown so badly that not even an award winning trauma center can stop the hemorrhaging and remove the remaining body parts of the woman’s baby from her uterus in time to save her life. 19 A business where parents do not even possess a right to be notified that their minor daughter is undergoing such procedures. 20 A business backed by the government of the United States of America to the tune of over half a billion tax dollars. 21 A business that enjoys being publicly praised and blessed by the President of the United States of America while he criticizes state legislatures that have enacted strict health codes on abortion providers to ensure the health and safety of women. 22 A business that has aborted 30% of the entire generation under 47 making up the biggest single reason for our sluggish economy. 23 A business that has already cost us over $50 TRILLION DOLLARS in lost Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and this cost to future generations of the American public just keeps growing every year. 24 A business founded by a well documented Klu Klux Klan speaker and one of the architects of the now infamous 1939 Negro Project that hired Black preachers to introduce birth control as a health option for Black women. 25 A business where its LARGEST ABORTION PROVIDER targets both the Black and Latino populations by locating 79% of its surgical abortion facilities within walking distance of Black and Latino communities. 26 A business that routinely performs 55% to 56% of its surgical abortions on Black and Latino women. 27 A business where Black American women with prior induced abortion (IA) experiences have triple the risk of an early preterm birth (EPB) and four times the risk of an extremely early preterm birth (XPB) as non-Black American women and are viewed as collateral damage. 28 A business that has watched the TOTAL FERTILITY RATE of Black Americans drop from 3.0 in 1970 to below the POPULATION REPLACEMENT LEVEL of 2.1 to 1.8 by 2012. 29 A business that we need to end before it ends us, all of us.

Another Cry for Gun Control Overlooks the Greater Problem of Our Society’s Culture of Death Attitude

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

140602 blog image

With the news of yet another mass murder, this time from a celebrity shooter, comes more cries from those seeking gun control.

The shooter Elliot Rodgers is yet another example of the symptoms that plague our world. The son of an Assistant Director of the award winning sans gratuitously violent film HUNGER GAMES went on a violent stabbing/shooting spree in what was an apparent cry for help gone wrong.

Once again “The Elephant in the Room” is hiding in plain sight while the obvious is being overlooked. Yes we lament the death of Rodgers’ victims while at the same time we make no accepted outcry over the deaths of the thousands of innocent people being killed right here in America every day. Millions of babies have died by abortion. Hundreds of mothers are subsequently injured by abortion; some die. And a significant amount of lament is sorely lacking.

Yet in the case of Rodgers, a puzzled mainstream media is asking: “Could it be that the media hype is due to the Hollywood link? Rich white men? Mental illness?”

Seriously? Is anyone connecting the dots here? These above are possible symptoms; not causes of outbreaks senseless violence.

People are creating mayhem on victims they do not know. In the streets, in the schools, in the dorm rooms, in the form of human trafficking, in the hospitals and in the wombs of women.

Not just with guns and knives, but with scalpels and forceps and drugs and devices. Added to the growing list of victims of senseless violence are young babies in the womb, their tortured mothers, the sick and the elderly.

Yes, Rodger used guns, but he also stabbed people. So will we again push for gun control? What about knife control? And what if he had choked his victims. Will we advocate for strangulation control?

The problem is not the weapons Rodger used; the problem is the attitude towards the lack of demanding the right to dignity of life in our society.

Instead this seems to be the prevailing mindset of today: Is someone standing in your way? Kill that person. Someone has what you want? Do whatever you have to get it from that human being; even if it means murder. Another person is interfering with your life’s plans? Abort your baby. Someone sick or old? Euthanize.

We see from this mindset that for many, life has become disposable in our society. As Mother Teresa once said, “The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.”

Peace in America has been destroyed in the name of “choice;” a “choice” that has left millions of children dead and many women, mothers dead or wounded. As a result of the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision which brought legal abortion and the 1963 action removing prayer from our schools, we are reaping a harvest of lawless violence. Yet people are still asking “why?”

Last week, May 28 marked the International Day of Action for Women’s Health. While many pro-aborts planned to take to Twitter to promote abortions as healthcare, pro-life activists hijacked the hashtags #WomensHealth and #May28 to tweet the truth about abortion. As most would agree, abortion is NOT healthcare. Abortion is mind numbing death care. So are the harmful carcinogenic cancer/stroke/heart attack causing carcinogenic so called birth control products; not health care but fertility blocking death care.

Pro-life activists have been accused of raging a war on women. Nothing can be further from the truth. We want to protect them both, the mother and the baby.

Yet our protection is being censored while our children’s lives, minds and souls are under attack.

Before Rodger’s shooting rampage he posted a video on YouTube in which he sat in the driver’s seat of a car and revealed his plans to “slaughter the hottest sorority girls at UCSB.” In a blog post, Rodger wrote: “Being lonely in a beautiful place like Santa Barbara is truly a horrible experience. As I’ve said many times, a beautiful environment can be the darkest hell if you have to experience it all alone, especially while having to watch other men walking around with their girlfriends.”

He hated women. He had been hurt by their refusals and he wanted to pay them back. It was all about him; his feelings; his “horrible experience;” His personal “hell.” He raged a war on women in the Isla Vista community. And his rampage also resulted in other casualties.

Is what Rodgers did really so different from the war on women and their baby boys and girls that is being waged by abortionists and the abortion industry? Although they say they don’t hate women, they too hurt women and children for their own gain. For them it may not a vengeful shooting or stabbing act but the result is the same; a mass war on women and babies that leaves casualties none the less.

2012 was a record year for this type of violence; abortions and mass murders. Blaming guns, white men, white privilege, Hollywood, mental illness, poverty, and only God knows what else.

Yet the mass murders such as Rodgers’ spree, school bombings, etc. have been occurring at an accelerated rate that parallels the removal of prayer from schools and the a scenario of the abortion history.

Mass murders increased when prayer was taken out of school and abortion was legalized. A godless nation is becoming a soulless nation.

When pro-life activists who care about children and their parents are said to be waging a war on women; when dismembering an unborn child while it is still in his/her mother’s womb is called healthcare; when the elderly and sick are being euthanized in growing numbers; then I ask you, “what is left but for you to kill me and me to kill you?”

Let us pray for repentance and revival. All is not lost. May God raise up a fearless “Generation Z,” a new beginning with warriors of old uniting with millennial champions of justice so that the killings will subside and our land can be healed.

Fr. Pavone: New polls show voters will demand more protection for the unborn

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: May 22, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

STATEN ISLAND, NY — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today about two polls on abortion attitudes that were released this week.

“The new Gallup poll on abortion, released today, and the Politico poll released earlier this week contain much good news for our nation’s unborn because they show support for additional measures to protect babies in the womb.

“The poll by Politico shows that support for measures like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will be strong this November,” said Fr. Pavone. “When 80 percent of voters in highly contested states and Congressional districts say they want babies protected from late-term abortions, if not most or all abortions, it’s pretty clear who the extremists are – those who support abortion on demand.”

He continued: “The Gallup poll shows that 50 percent of Americans want some restrictions on abortion, with 21 percent of those saying it should be illegal in all circumstances. These are good numbers. Half of all Americans clearly understand that abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy is wrong. It gives me hope that, at the very least, we will soon be able to protect babies from the brutality of a late-term abortion.”

Father Pavone noted that both polls showed a minority of Americans – 28 percent in the Gallup poll and 19 percent in Politico survey — favoring legal abortion at any time and for any reason.

“These findings are consistent with what we have seen for many years,” Father Pavone said. “Most Americans reject most abortions. It is simply false to say that most Americans support Roe v. Wade, because that decision brought us the extreme policy of abortion on demand, which most of the public rejects.”

Let the Truth Be Told.

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

140521 Blog Image

Here’s a real life rescue by a pro-life advocate. Abby Johnson means business when it comes to exposing the truth about abortion, and ending the decimation of the lives of babies and mothers. Here’s what happened.

A 15-year-old pregnant girl who went to the Buffalo (NY) Women’s Services center for an ultrasound exam, was locked in a room by the abortion clinic and not allowed to leave. The girl’s mother, who did not want her daughter to have an abortion and who was removed from the facility after she “freaked out,” called Abby Johnson, who had been counseling the girl. Mrs. Johnson called the police, the girl was freed, and she is keeping her baby.

Abby is a former abortion provider turned pro-life advocate. She is one of thousands of women, myself included, who realize that the abortion industry has been lying to women about abortion and carcinogenic fertility blockers misnamed “birth control.” Abortion and carcinogenic birth control are not healthcare, they are injurious to the lives of women and children.

I’m reading two eye opening books right now, RECALL ABORTION by Janet Morana, and COMPLICATIONS: ABORTION’S IMPACT ON WOMEN. These books are informative and should be read by women everywhere.

I wanted to blog about my trip to the movie theater to see “Moms’ Night Out,” but this story about the young mother and her brave mother, the grandmother of her unborn child inspired me so much that I decided to blog about movies later this week.

Please, if you know a woman, a mother who just needs love and support in the midst of being coerced to abort her child, please… For Christ’s sake… Do something! A moment of decision trumps apathy. There are countless of young women like the one in this blog. They just need another hero. The pro-life movement is here to help you!

In Time For Father’s Day, A New Focus On Men And Abortion

Monday, May 19th, 2014

SNMAC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 19, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

Turning the Hearts of Fathers is a new initiative of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign to enlist church leaders to share the good news of forgiveness and recovery to men who have experienced abortion loss. Silent No More is a joint campaign of Priests for Life and Anglicans for Life.

The new project has been launched in time for Father’s Day, because men who have lost a child or children to abortion are often more acutely aware of that loss on the holiday that celebrates children’s love and gratitude for their fathers.

“We have learned from fathers who have taken part in an abortion that their experience damaged them as men,” said Kevin Burke, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and coordinator of Turning the Hearts of Fathers. “Abortion attacks the fundamental nature of the gift men bring to the family: a father’s love and protection of the children entrusted to his care. Violating this fundamental law of God can later weaken men in their vocation as husbands, fathers and spiritual leaders at home, in church and in their communities.”

Burke said priests and ministers are often wary of addressing the subject in their ministry and preaching for fear of hurting or alienating those in the congregation who have lost children to abortion. Turning the Hearts of Fathers addresses these concerns with information and resources to reach out with sensitivity and effectiveness. At the website FatherhoodForever.org, clergy will find resources to help them preach about the topic, announcements that can be included in the weekly bulletin and information on abortion recovery programs.

“What a great blessing it will be for our families, churches and nation when the millions of men involved in abortion decisions turn to Christ for healing and restoration,” Burke said.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and Pastoral Director of the new initiative, noted that the participation of priests and ministers across the country is vital for the project to succeed.

“Many aspects of abortion are very sensitive, but that doesn’t mean they should be ignored,” Father Pavone said. “The impact of abortion on the lives of our people is all the more reason a shepherd must pay attention to these wounds. Ministry involves confronting problems that provoke emotions. Ministry regarding abortion involves nothing less than life and death.”

For interviews with Kevin Burke, Father Pavone or a father willing to speak on the record about his abortion loss, contact Leslie Palma at 347-286-7277 or leslie@silentnomore.com.

Since the launch of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 5,715 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 1,325 gatherings in 48 states and 17 countries. More than 14,979 people representing 77 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 2,014 testimonies posted here, with over 293 that are shared via video!

Priests for Life: Gosnell Anniversary Links Pain-Capable Bill and 2014 Elections

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: May 13, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK, NY — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement this morning:

“Today marks one year since the conviction of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who killed children before and after birth, and killed their mothers as well. I remember vividly the arguments in the courtroom, and how consistent these crimes are with what we see in abortion clinics throughout the nation, as detailed in the book Lime 5.

“Today we also join the voices of many in the U.S. Senate and across America in calling for a Senate vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This legislation, which would protect children in the womb from 20 weeks forward, is the next key step in reaching our ultimate goal, which is the protection of every unborn child — all of whom, without exception, we acknowledge as persons. Even among those who do not share that ultimate goal or belief, most agree that a policy allowing abortion after 20 weeks — when these children feel pain — is too extreme.

“Along with working for the passage of this legislation, Priests for Life is also implementing a project whereby each member of the U.S. Senate will be asked publicly whether he or she believes that the lives of children after 20 weeks of development should be protected in the womb. Priests for Life will see to it not only that this question is asked, but that the response — or lack thereof — is widely publicized in the state that senator represents, and across the country. Like it or not, the painful dismemberment of children in the womb is going to be a key issue in this year’s midterm elections.

“Finally, Priests for Life is planning a national memorial service for the babies and moms who were killed by Kermit Gosnell. These babies were given names in a special ceremony last year at the headquarters of Priests for Life (see www.KermitGosnell.com). The Philadelphia Medical Examiner refused to release the bodies of these children for burial. But we can have a funeral service nevertheless, and we will be calling upon the support and participation of Churches, the pro-life community, and all citizens of good will.”

Mothers’ Day Begins In The Womb: Pray For At Risk Mothers And Babies.

Friday, May 9th, 2014

140509 blog image

Tomorrow my daughters, Mother and I will attend a “Mother Daughter Tea.” We will celebrate our joyous relationships. Then, on Sunday, I will participate in a Mothers’ Day Celebration at church. There will be good singing and Bible teaching. Yet many mothers and daughters will have a bittersweet weekend.

Over 300 girls in Nigeria won’t spend a happy Mother’s Day with their families due to terrorists kidnapping them. Across America millions of aborted baby boys and girls will not feel a mother’s touch because they were silenced by abortion’s sting. Lament and weep for mothers and their children.

This year I am praying for these losses; including those of my dear friends and even family members who have lost mothers and children who are deceased by natural causes; as well as some by sickness, accidents, crimes; and yes sadly, by abortion and carcinogenic birth control.

Sadly still, just days before Mothers Day, we have received shocking news of a misguided mother who is celebrating her abortion on video:

Emily Letts tries to hide the Scary Truth

Recently Emily Letts, a former professional actress and current COSMOPOLITAN Magazine contributor advertised her “not scary” abortion which fails to show the brutal dismemberment of her baby. She posted it on YouTube. Now that’s a sick and scary thing; a very sad Mothers’ Day testimony.

Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life counsels post-abortive women who have had abortions. In the midst of hearings regarding infringement of our religious freedoms by the strong arm of the HHS Mandate, he has taken precious time to lament the pre- Mothers’ Day travesty triggered by Emily’s video:

“Actually, Emily did not film her abortion. She filmed her smiles and sighs during a procedure which we are expected to take her at her word was an abortion. But to really film an abortion, you have to film the arms and legs of the baby being ripped apart and the head being crushed,” he said.

I agree with Father Frank. I and hundreds of other women have posted our abortion testimonies at silentnomoreawareness.org. Also, more stories available at AbortionTestimony.com witness to the truth; abortion hurts women and kills babies who die horrible deaths. Emily is missing something in her video; the truth.

s Righs Begin in the Womb

At standtrue.com, my colleague Bryan Kemper writes:

“I don’t hate Emily; my heart actually breaks for her. I am just like her, a sinner who can only find the Hope I need in Christ. I know that Emily is someone’s daughter and as a father I hurt for the lost grandchild her father will never hold. As a Christian I grieve for the state of her soul and her eternal path. I will commit to praying for Emily and for her to find the Hope that is only found in our Savior, Jesus Christ.”

Father Frank, Bryan, many other colleagues and I spent yesterday at a Rally for Religious Freedom. We gathered outside the courthouse in DC to raise our concerns about the injustice of the HHS Mandate which has resulted in our PFL lawsuit. All the while I was either standing outside with the faithful, or sitting inside the courtroom at the hearing, I was remembering the pain of babies marked for slaughter and their mothers marked for deception.

In a few weeks, soon after Mothers’ Day, and followed by Fathers’ Day, on July 2, 2014 we will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the US Civil Rights Act. Two days later we will celebrate July 4, Independence Day. Yet the war on the wombs of women and the decimation of the natural God ordained family structure continues to tear away the very foundations of our liberty.

For those who will be celebrating Mothers’ Day with your beloved mothers, God bless you. Please remember to say a prayer for those who are not so fortunate; that God will heal our land, our wombs, and our families; and bring an end to the scourge of abortion which is at the heart of the war on women.
