I Stand With Father Pavone (#istandwithfatherpavone)

Pelosi Question Bubble

Fr. Frank Pavone is highly respected for his dedication to the unborn and his determination to fight to end abortion. I am truly grateful that he is not afraid to speak the truth and challenge those that would spread lies.

That is why I’m not afraid to stand with Father Pavone in his latest #LetterToNancy campaign at LetterToNancy.com.

This campaign is really about a whole lot more that simply challenging one politician. It’s really about everyone in America and around the world answering the same question that Mrs. Pelosi is being asked but refuses to answer: “What is the moral difference between what Dr. Gosnell did to a baby born alive at 23 weeks and aborting her moments before birth?”

It’s also bigger than Catholicism or any other religion. It’s about all people everywhere and the belief that life is sacred.

Just as we wish to protect our born children from predators and abuse because they are vulnerable, we must also protect the most vulnerable, those in the womb. They are human beings too and should be protected by law.

The question asked of Mrs. Pelosi was about a 23 week old baby who had ten fingers, ten toes, a beating heart, lungs, eyes, ears, mouth, and a nose. And certainly this baby deserves protection. But I say to you that at 4 months, at 2 months, at 25 days, at 10 days, at conception all those features were already programmed into the DNA and as such was already a human being demanding protection.

So as you ponder the question, don’t be afraid to ask the same question of your Pastor, your friends, your family.

The answer is simply really.

There is no difference between aborting a baby moments before birth and what Gosnell did and a host of other abortionists are doing in abortion mills across this country.

It’s time for the 21st Century Civil Rights Movement to go to the next level. It’s time we Abolish Abortion!

National Education Association Pro-Abortion Stance Is Deadly For Students

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013
Student's First Teacher

Student’s First Teacher

You would think that an organization whose mission is “to advocate for education professionals and to unite our members and the nation to fulfill the promise of public education to prepare every student to succeed in a diverse and interdependent world” would want success for every person, including the unborn because, after all, they too will be students one day. In fact, they are students as they begin learning the voice of their caretakers from inside the mother’s womb.

As Jaclyn Stewart points out in an article, “Studies show that even in the womb, your baby is listening. If you talk to your baby frequently during your pregnancy, or even just talk a lot in general, your baby will be able to recognize the sound of your voice when he[/she] his born. This is an important first step in the learning process

It is admirable for an organization to provide a “public education to prepare every student to succeed” only if it applies to ALL students.

Georgia Right to Life, in cooperation with other pro-life groups, is organizing a protest at this year’s NEA Convention in Atlanta, GA at the Georgia World Congress Center on July 1, 2013 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. The NEA Convention is June 26-July 6, 2013 with some 16,000 members expected to attend. Your help and participation is needed to show support for the youngest of students, the student learning from what should be the safest schools of all, free from violence; free from discrimination; a smoke free environment; and provided with healthy meals.

Georgia Right to Life points out on their website that,

Lurking beneath this admirable mission, however, lays a deceptive family planning resolution, as follows:

“The National Education Association supports family planning, including the right to reproductive freedom.
The Association urges the government to give high priority to making available all methods of family planning to women and men unable to take advantage of private facilities.
The Association also urges the implementation of community-operated, school-based family planning clinics that will provide intensive counseling by trained personnel.”

At the 1998 NEA Assembly in New Orleans, LA, a first time delegate asked the following 3-part question (from the resolution above) at the microphone:

• Through the words “reproductive freedom” in our Resolutions document, does the NEA support the choice to abort after the first trimester?

Response from the chair: Yes.

• Through the words “reproductive freedom” in our Resolutions document, does the NEA support a woman’s choice to abort after viability?

Response from the chair: Yes.

• Through the words “reproductive freedom” in our Resolutions document, does the NEA support the decision to abort up to, and including delivery, commonly termed by the media a “partial birth abortion?”

Response from the chair: We have NO limitations.

According to their website, their vision is a great public school for every student offering equal opportunity. By equal opportunity they “believe public education is the gateway to opportunity. All students have the human and civil right to a quality public education that develops their potential, independence, and character.” [Emphasis added]

The NEA espouses great sounding rhetoric like “We believe public education is vital to building respect for the worth, dignity, and equality of every individual in our diverse society” while with the other hand committing $60 million for President Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012, the most pro-abortion president in America’s history.

If you live in Atlanta and you believe that ALL students, born and unborn, deserve a quality education, public or private, show your support by coming out to the Georgia World Congress Center July 1 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. Stand with other like minded teachers, students, mothers, fathers, clergy, and other pro-lifers to demand that the NEA remain neutral on the issue of abortion. If you can’t come for the full four hours, come when you can. If you can’t come or you don’t live in Atlanta, please spend some time praying for those that will show up and for the NEA, that they will stand for life in addition to education of our children.

Dr. Alveda King Remembers the “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

mlk-in-birmingham-jail

On this, the 50th anniversary of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous Letter from a Birmingham Jail, his niece, Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, says her uncle’s letter applies just as profoundly today to abortion as it did in 1963 to segregation.

Alveda is joined by Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life who today said: “Today, that letter still speaks. Just as it spoke in his day on behalf of those who suffered the violence of segregation, so now it speaks for those who suffer the violence of abortion.”

Alveda adds, “If Uncle M.L. were alive today, he would surely include the 21st century womb babies and their mothers in his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” The atrocity of abortion in America has killed millions of human babies who are often considered to be property, chattels, and less than human.

“In his 1963 letter, he wrote that segregation ‘ends up relegating persons to the status of things.’ Change ‘segregation’ to ‘abortion’ and you have the year 2013.

“Jim Crow laws gave us the continuing dehumanization of African Americans, beatings, lynchings, and the Ku Klux Klan. Roe v. Wade has given us the dehumanization of unborn and, now, born babies, skull crushings, spine snippings. Consider Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia; the Planned Parenthood Chicago facility that killed Tonya Reaves; and all of the other hundreds of abortion providers and Planned Parenthood officials who can’t say whether fully born babies who survive abortions should be helped to live.

“In the Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Uncle M. L. noted that by their effort and example, early Christians ‘brought an end to such evils as infanticide’ in the Greco-Roman world. We now know, however, that the Greco-Roman world has been revived in abortion clinics across the land. Where the ancients would leave their unwanted babies to die of exposure, abortionists now leave their ‘mistakes’ to die in corners or closets – or worse.

My Uncle M.L. once wrote in 1953 that the most segregated hour in America is 11:00 am on Sunday because back then Blacks and Whites didn’t often worship together.

Fast forward to 2013, where minority mothers and our babies are targeted by abortion providers as the most vulnerable recipients of abortion in the name of women’s rights and solutions to poverty. Even Gosnell, whose defense lawyer said if women want Mayo Clinic standards they should go to Mayo Clinic, yes, even Gosnell’s House of Horrors had a slightly cleaner “White Only” surgical room, while Black women and their babies were butchered in a torture chamber in another section of the abortion mill. All the while, they all keep trying to hide the fact that all abortions are dangerous to a woman’s health, her baby’s life, and generally result in death and misery.

This all leads me to say that the most segregated place a woman can go today is an abortion mill! And no ludicrous references to a 1966 deceptive Planned Parenthood Award offered to MLK and accepted by his wife, not him, is going to trick people into believing that my uncle would condone slaughtering babies and damaging their mothers in the name of justice.

“Uncle M. L. even once asked: ‘How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: ‘An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The Reverend King was a man of God and a preacher of the Word. He sought a peace that was not just the absence of tension, but the presence of justice. He would agree that there can be no real peace in a society that tolerates injustice. He would most certainly agree that the taking of innocent lives is a horrible injustice. There is no doubt that just as my Uncle M.L. called America’s clergy to awaken 50 years ago to the moral transgression of segregation, he would today sound out a call for a moral awakening and urge all Americans and indeed all human beings around the world today to awaken to the grievous wrong of abortion, and the subsequent devastation of natural marriage and family.”

Alveda King and Black Leaders: ‘Gosnell Attorney Playing the Race Card is Outrageous and Shameful’

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

The defense attorney for Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist whose killing center earned the title “Gosnell’s House of Horrors” has tried to reduce Gosnell’s charges to “prosecutorial lynching.”

This strategy is an insult to the babies he slaughtered, the women he maimed and killed, the African Community at large and the human race, say African American leaders.

In his opening arguments Jack McMahon called the case “elitist” and “racist,” and charged the trail is coming from prosecutors trying to “put Mayo clinic standards into a West Philadelphia clinic.” Members of the Black Prolife Coalition believe it is Gosnell who is elitist and definitely racist.

“Don’t Black women and babies deserve Mayo Clinic standards?” said Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life. “You sir, are being elitist and racist to suggest that we do not. We reject the notion that the black and brown women Gosnell preyed upon deserved less. Your tactics are shameful, outrageous and an affront in the face of God,” said Dr. King.

“Throughout the Holocaust Josef Mengele aka ‘the angel of death’ delighted in killing young children in the most atrocious and gruesome experiments — all in the name of science,” said Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union. “Kermit Gosnell, is the Black community’s Mengele because he especially preyed on children of his own race who were fully born — totally free to experience the life and liberty that we are all promised in America. Yet, at that moment of new life — the child in warm hands, breathing air, seeing first light, may have also seen the face of his or her executioner. The only factor of ‘race’ is that Gosnell killed these children because he could. He thought no one would really care — after all, it’s just one more Black child — dead in Philadelphia,” Gardner said.

“Selling out the Black community in the name of abortion rights is unconscionable,” said Catherine Davis, Founder and President of the Restoration Project. “But, Gosnell’s attorney has taken this betrayal to a new low by claiming Gosnell should not be prosecuted because he is black. While “women kept being referred to and coming to his clinic because they could get what they needed at the right price,” the right price made Gosnell a millionaire while he was butchering women and babies in the name of abortion. I say he should be prosecuted and held accountable for the injuries and deaths of those he is now claiming to have served and his race makes this betrayal all the more difficult to stomach.”

Not only is Dr. Kermit Gosnell documented as a depraved butcher, he is a depraved butcher who made money on the desperation and despair of women from his own community. Even the Klu Klux Klan treated their own women better,” said Walter Hoye, founder of the Issues4Life Foundation.

The leaders are spearheading investigations, calling for enforcement of life saving laws for women and children, and are advocating information campaigns as to the harmful impact of eugenics and genocide in the Black community.

King, Gardner, Davis and Hoye are all members of the well known National Black Prolife Coalition. Their book LIFE AT ALL COSTS is a thoughtful and well researched account of the issues of life and family that are impacting the Black community.

After First Amendment Victory, Priests for Life Youth Leader to Return to Ohio College

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Bryan Kemper in Sidney

Priests for Life Youth Outreach Director Bryan Kemper, who was banned from holding a pro-life sign during a peaceful protest rally at Sinclair Community College last year, will return to the Dayton, Ohio school tomorrow, after the college agreed to uphold its students’ First Amendment rights.

In June 2012, during a Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally – one of more than 100 simultaneous rallies that Priests for Life helped organize across the country – Kemper was among those who were told by Dayton police that they could not hold up signs describing their opposition to government-mandated free contraception.

The Thomas More Society filed a federal lawsuit against the college on behalf of Kemper and two students. As a result of the suit, the college agreed in January to revise its campus access policy, which now stipulates that “any group may use, without prior notification, any publicly accessible outdoor area” (with some exceptions) for the purposes of speaking, non-verbal expressive conduct, the distribution of literature, displaying signage, and circulating petitions.”

Go to www.priestsforlife.org/deddens-v-warren.pdf to read the full settlement agreement.

Tomorrow, at the invitation of the school’s Traditional Values Club, Kemper will address students in the school library, from 1:30 to 5 p.m.

“This case has implications for the whole country, especially those of us who express opinions that aren’t politically correct in our current climate,” said Kemper, the founder of Stand True Prolife Outreach. “But it was also important to me, personally, because my son Jaemison, who was 7 at the time, was with me, and I wanted him to see that we can fight against injustice, and we can win.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented: “Free speech is protected precisely because it can make people so angry that they will try to shut up the speaker. This case shows that the protection still works, and we need to use it!”

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.

OPEN LETTER TO PASTORS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS

Monday, January 28th, 2013

SPACER

Challenge the NAACP and other leaders who are betraying the Black Community

CALL FOR A NATIONAL YEAR OF REPENTANCE, REMEMBERING, RECALLING, RETURNING, REVIVAL, RESTORING AND REFORMING!

“IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME (GOD) WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS AND SEEK MY FACE, THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Calling all churches and community activists to protest the leadership of the National NAACP and other community leaders including the CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS, THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS, and THE ADMINISTRATION for failure to represent the health and wellbeing of the Black community.

This year people of God in churches and community groups will be praying and fasting regarding sin based issues ranging from abortion, traditional marriage, destruction of the black family and the extraordinarily high incarceration rate of black men.

Too many are silent in the face of betrayal and loss. Some are IN BED WITH big money organizations and corporations whose aim is to NEGATIVELY impact the physical and spiritual health of Black America, including the PUSHING of alcohol, cigarettes, dangerous pharmaceuticals, abortion, etc. They have FAILED to address high unemployment in Black America, the high rate of incarceration of Black males, the high school dropouts, the extraordinarily high number and rate of abortions in the Black community, and the lack of marriage among mothers and fathers.

People in high seats of authority know the truth and are refusing to act on it.  They are supporting:

 

  • The racist agenda of Planned Parenthood
  • The reproductive genocide of over 20 million Black children
  • The violation of the civil rights of children in the womb
  • The dismantling of Holy Matrimony
  • The promotion of homosexual  marriage
  • They know that Black Women are dying from abortions and

Harmful DEPO (Depo- Provera) shots and are doing NOTHING ABOUT IT.

THEY ARE PROMOTING A FALSE GOSPEL WHICH IS DEADLY TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND TO OUR NATION AS A WHOLE. LET US RETURN TO BEING “ONE NATION UNDER GOD, BROTHERS AND SISTERS UNITED IN THE HUMAN RACE, TO ADVANCE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, AND TO EMBARCE HUMANITY IN AGAPE LOVE, REPENTANCE, FORGIVENESS AND HUMILITY.
