NEW YORK, NY — Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries are firing on all cylinders today as it takes part in a Twitterstorm on women’s health and abortion in developing countries.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is sending out Tweets from his account, @frfrankpavone, as are members of the Pastoral Team, including Youth Outreach Director Bryan Kemper, @bryankemper, and Dr. Alveda King, Director of African-American Outreach, @alvedaking. Janet Morana, executive director, is sending Tweets from @recallabortion and @regretabortion.

Through her work at the United Nations as PFL’s Special Representative, Marie Smith, director of the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues, part of Gospel of Life Ministries, learned that today, #May28, a coalition of pro-abortion groups would take to Twitter to promote abortion as essential healthcare for women and for its inclusion in the next set of goals being created at the United Nations.

Mrs. Smith brought the event to Kemper’s attention last week. Since then, he and Andy Moore, director of online communications for Americans United for Life, have been publicizing the event across the social media universe.

“Pro-life Tweeters gave a major push back to the global promotion of abortion as part of women’s health as pro-abortion activists marked May 28 as the International Day of Action for Women’s Health,” Mrs. Smith said. “May 28 was supposed to be a day when a cacophony of pro-abortion organizations and radical feminist groups came together to advance global access to abortion, but their plans was interrupted.”

Kemper commented: “Once again the pro-life generation has risen up and taken over the Twittersphere as we have dominated #womenshealth by as much as 15 to 1 during the pro-abort Tweetfest. The youth are always called the leaders of the future but they are showing they are the leaders of today by flooding Twitter with the truth that abortion is not #womenshealth. Stand True, the youth outreach of Priests for Life is dedicated to educating, activating and equipping this generation and we are excited to see today’s successful takeover of the pro-abortion Tweetfest.”

“We really can’t underestimate the value of this kind of social engagement,” said Father Pavone. “We are directly reaching people all over the globe with important, informative messages about how abortion is not healthcare in any circumstance. To have such a global audience is exciting for us.”

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org

Please Take This Survey and Help Distribute

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

womens-health

I just took this survey by Dr. Coleman and would like you to take it too and help distribute it.

See what was sent to me below.

Publicize the surveys. Dr. Coleman has created two surveys: one for women who seriously considered abortion (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NRSWMHWAC) but chose life, and one for women who have had at least one abortion (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NRSAWMH). Please consider asking women you know who fit, or may fit, these categories to consider completing one of these surveys.

Consider distributing the attached flyers to:

* Center staff and volunteers
* Current or former clients
* Women who have completed your after abortion care program

What to communicate: As you invite women to participate in the surveys, please take a moment to communicate a few key points:
* The surveys are completely anonymous. No personal information will be collected and no follow up contact will be initiated.
* Each online survey may take approximately an hour to complete.

Thank you for your help!

Judge’s Decision Is Dangerous For Our Children

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

As a mother and grandmother I shudder to consider the harm this will bring to young girls and subsequent grief to parents and loved ones.

Many contraceptives like ELLA, the morning after pill, have side effects and possible outcomes including strokes, heart attacks, sterility, etc.

USA Today is editorializing against a federal judge’s decision to require that “morning after” pills be made available over the counter to anyone of any age. In supporting the Obama administration’s original policy to require that girls under 17 obtain prescriptions for such drugs, USA Today writes, “The greater good is to leave decisions about the medical treatment of children in their parents’ hands.”

Breast Cancer Among Young Women Almost Doubled From 1976 To 2009

Rebecca Johnson was 27 years old and had just graduated from medical school when she got the diagnosis: breast cancer. She thought she was a rare case, but then a few of her friends got it too. So did some friends of friends.

Was it all just a coincidence, or was breast cancer becoming more common in younger women?

“I really wondered,” said Johnson, now 44 and the director of the Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology program at Seattle Children’s Hospital. So she examined decades’ worth of data from the National Cancer Institute and made a disturbing find: Cases of younger women with advanced breast cancer have increased about 2% each year since the mid-1970s and show no signs of abating.

The results, published in Wednesday’s edition of the Journal of the American Medical Assn., confirmed the suspicions of many oncologists who had noticed an uptick in patients younger than 40 with cancer that had spread to the bones, brain or lungs.

In 1976, 1.53 out of every 100,000 American women 25 to 39 years old was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, the study found. By 2009, the rate had almost doubled to 2.9 per 100,000 women in that age group — a difference too large to be a chance result.

“Most studies have failed to show an absolute increase,” said Dr. Benjamin Paz, a City of Hope Cancer Center surgeon who was not involved in the study. “Now, looking at a longer period of time, this study shows there’s clearly been an increase. It’s the first to do so.”

One most often overlooked breast cancer link is contraceptives. A possible cause not mentioned in the article is the increased number of abortions, a warning that many in the pro-life movement have been alluding to for years. Number of breast cancer increases with increased number of abortions.

If you understand the effects of abortion on your body, you will understand why this study is of no surprise to me. An article by Dr. Gerard Nadal published over two years ago explains it in easy to understand language.

I bet that you can probably guess the age group of women that have the most abortions. According the the Guttmacher Institute, “More than half of American women obtaining abortions are in their 20s. Women aged 20–24 have the highest abortion rate of any age-group.” Given this information, it’s no wonder that breast cancer is on the rise in women 25-39.

Abortion Hurts Women! This is just another good example.

A Google search of “fluoride dangers’ can lead you to much more information.

Like the abortion industry tries to keep the truth about abortion’s negative impact on our society, the fluoride lobby tries to keep the truth about fluoridation out of the consumer’s hands.

The truth will make us free.
