Imagine your friend is planning a bank robbery. Do you agree to drive the getaway car? Do you try to talk her out of it? Do you say nothing?

Now imagine an innocent bystander is killed during that robbery. Are you impacted by that death? Of course you are, whether you were complicit in the robbery or were merely silent. Even if you counseled against it, this death, and the consequences your friend will now face, will weigh on your soul.

In July, Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion, an initiative of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, focuses on the survivors of abortion as well as the family and friends of the women who have had abortions.

The survivors encompass ten different categories, such as those who were almost aborted, and those who had no legal protection while in the womb.

Friends include those who were complicit in the abortion, those who did nothing to try to stop it, those who did try to stop it but failed, and those who found out about the abortion only after the fact. Just like those involved in the bank robbery scenario, everyone who knows a mother who aborted her child is impacted by the loss of that child.

Kevin Burke, LSW, co-founder of Rachel’s Vineyard and an architect of the Shockwaves initiative noted that abortion survivors often suffer from this “extremely important and rarely discussed example of the collateral damage from the abortion blast.”

“Shockwaves was not designed to shame those who played a role in abortion,” said Janet Morana, co-founder of Silent No More. “Instead, it will sound a loving call of reconciliation and healing for all involved in abortion decisions.”

Father Frank Pavone, Pastoral Director of Silent No More and National Director of Priests for Life, explained that “Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion is a year-long international effort to reach all the different groups of people who are impacted when a child dies from abortion. In addition to survivors, those groups include grandparents, siblings, survivors, spouses, abortionists and their staff, and pro-life advocates. This is a call for all of us to grieve the children who have been killed. “

Georgette Forney, co-founder of Silent No More, said all those who mourn the loss of a child to abortion can benefit from the healing resources that can be found at www.AbortionShockwaves.com

“People on the periphery of an abortion decision might be confused about the feelings they are experiencing,” Mrs. Forney said. “Through Shockwaves, we hope to validate and address those feelings.”

Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion was launched in January at the March for Life in Washington, D.C., where the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, led a prayer and gave a blessing in the name of Pope Francis as his personal representative in the U.S.

To arrange an interview with anyone on the Shockwaves team or an abortion survivor who has found healing, call Leslie Palma at 347-286-7277 or email her at leslie@priestsforlife.org

The Campaign began November 11th, 2002. As of February 2015, the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has held 1,436 Gatherings in 17 countries & 48 states with 5,934 women and men sharing their abortion testimonies. Testimonies have also been shared at 104 high schools and universities in the last 4 years, 26 in 2014. There are 2,233 testimonies posted on the Campaign website, with 332 that are shared via video! Currently there are 16,225 people registered with the Campaign representing 77 countries. People who are not ready to join the Campaign, are invited to register their regret. So far, 4,890 women and 573men have said they regret their abortion or lost fatherhood. Another552 women and men have posted memorials to their children.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website: www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org

Happy Birthday America: PRAY for AMERICA!

July 3rd, 2015

IMG_0615

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is the value of a song? What better way to celebrate our national anniversary than with a new song release?

Alyak Productions and Heaven Sings Entertainment, announce the release of “PRAY for AMERICA.” The song is a poignant response to current domestic and world events, calling listeners to a greater respect for human life.

The song has long been on the radar of my friend, Alyak Productions founder, Eugene Vigil who has been waiting for the right time to record it. After sharing it with me, we agreed that it is a timely and much needed message.

It’s almost like déjà vu; reminiscent of the 20th century civil rights movement and other landmarks in human history where people were inspired to share great hope through songs like WE SHALL OVERCOME, LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING, AMAZING GRACE, and on and on.

More recently, we have been blessed with GLORY. And now PRAY FOR AMERICA.

In light of the recent turmoil over race-based church shootings, riots in major cities around our country, and global and domestic terrorism, “Pray for America” urges Americans to combat all violence and injustice through prayer– not just in America but around the world.

Eugene’s hope for this song is that it will bring people of every ethnicity together to pray for our nation’s leaders, our president, our Supreme Court, our senators and congressmen and women, and all people living in our country…that through prayer we may have a stronger, united America. And through a stronger America, we may achieve a deeper respect for all lives because ALL lives matter.

“PRAY for AMERICA” will be available soon via iTunes and Spotify among other digital music outlets.

Atlanta, GA – The Supreme Court has spoken and ruled from a position of common law – human law – that gay and lesbian couples have a fundamental right to marry. This is the highest rule that humans can make. Yet this is not the final word

In the end, natural law, God’s law will always trump common law. Do not fear or be confused or deceived. Remain prayerful. Keep looking up. God will have the final Word in this matter.

“Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.”(Galatians 6:7 NLT)

Let’s Talk About Abortion: Ever Wondered Who Pays Abortion Doctors’ Medical School Bills?

June 23rd, 2015

150623 blog image small

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Ever wondered who convinces medical students, health care providers, doctors and the like to abandon the Hippocratic Oath to pursue careers which involve killing babies and maiming women?

They go into medicine to save help heal people; get unsuspecting abortion scholarship, and millions end up dying.

The Hippocratic Oath is a sacred pledge for physicians: to treat the ill to the best of one’s ability, to preserve a patient’s privacy, to teach the secrets of medicine to the next generation, and more.

So according to the oath, in a pregnancy, the doctor would have two patients. Even in cases of rape and incest and human trafficking; knowing that abortion cannot heal but only compound these violations; the doctor has two patients, mother and child.

During the days of Gosnell’s House of Horrors trial, the thought came to me that he, along with the doctor who aborted my second baby, and maybe hundreds of other abortion providers such as Lett in Alabama may have been early victims of phony “medical assistance education grants” that would require that recipients adapt to a eugenicists/genocidal mindset.

I became suspicious of the motivation behind PPH awards and grants while investigating the so called MLK acceptance speech for the PPH Maggie Award. Uncle MLK didn’t write the speech, didn’t attend the ceremony, and didn’t believe that abortion was a civil right. Mrs. Laura Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush are prochoice. Their presidential husbands are prolife. Same with Mrs. Coretta Scott King and MLK. Coretta Scott King was prochoice in favor of a woman’s right to choose abortion. She accepted the Maggie Award instead of her husband. MLK was prolife.

During her lifetime, in her own words, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger said:

“While the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors, they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table… They do not do this with white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the clinic, he can go among them with enthusiasm and…knowledge, which…will have far-reaching results among the colored people…The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Sanger is remembered as a popular eugenicist, genocide proponent, and promoter of the development of birth control pills. She was also a cofounder of the notorious sterilization program, The Negro Project; and was a favored consultant with the KKK. She was a forerunner and leader of what today is known as the abortion industry.

Even today, the abortion/ anti-life and anti-natural family lobby spends millions annually to infiltrate and indoctrinate the health care world to push euthanasia, abortion, sterilization and other various forms of “population control.”

In more current reports, mounting evidence of this trend surfaces:

Recently, an anonymous young British doctor undergoing her abortion training writes in the Guardian newspaper, “If I’m honest, I haven’t found it emotionally easy (and I suspect neither have those closest to me!) but I’d never go back and change that decision. Not only have I received excellent tuition, but, perhaps more importantly, I have learnt much about life from the women I have cared for.” She concludes by writing of the end of her day, “I breathe my customary sigh of relief as I close my front door behind me and kick off my shoes. My boyfriend hears the latch and calls from the kitchen to ask me about my day. I mutter something nondescript, skimping on detail, then get straight to the point: ‘How about a glass of wine?’”

Link: http://www.theguardian.com/healthcare-network/views-from-the-nhs-frontline/2015/jun/22/abortion-doctor-learn-life-women

In another report on American students who attend a Cuban medical school on scholarships financed by Pastors for Peace, Breitbart.com notes that one of the graduates of the Cuban school, Carmen Landau, was recorded in a 2013 Live Action News video telling a woman at the Southwest Women’s Options clinic in Albuquerque that having an abortion would be like getting a “flu shot or vaccine.” One of the stipulations for these American students is that when they return to the U.S. from Cuba, they must “practice medicine in poor and underserved US communities.”

Link: http://www.breitbart.com/california/2015/06/13/u-s-med-students-in-cuba-bring-centralized-medicine-push-home/

This “having an abortion would be like getting a “flu shot or vaccine” language sounds suspiciously like the “abortion doesn’t hurt as much as having a tooth pulled” pitch I was given before my abortions in the 1970s. I have since wondered, “Who paid to teach our doctors to kill rather than heal?”

In 1 Kings 10:7 the Bible says that not even half of the truth has been told. Galatians 4:16 asks “am I now your enemy because I tell you the truth?”

Well, it’s time for the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Let’s talk about abortion.

They Had a Dream: The Legacy of Granddaddy King – Father of Martin Luther King

June 19th, 2015

A GUEST BLOG BY KEVIN BURKE, LSW

King Collage w Names

“Kevin has been a source of insight regarding the impact of and connection to abortion and the role of the father figure in the life of a little girl who grows up to become a mother. I hope that his blog will bless many with the same insight with which Kevin has blessed me.” – Dr. Alveda C. King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life

The King Family shared in a special way in the legacy of triumph and tragedy that marked the Civil Rights movement in the tumultuous decades of the 1950’s and 1960’s. It is widely known that their non-violent, prayerful resistance was a cornerstone of the strategy to dismantle the systemic structures of racism and violence that plagued so many African Americans. Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. and his brother A.D. King were very visible leaders of this movement. They embodied some of the best qualities of manly and fatherly leadership in their struggle for the civil rights of all Americans, especially the weakest and powerless in our society.

Where did these men find the courage and develop those Gospel-rooted values that led them to be such powerful advocates for the oppressed?

A lesser known part of the King Family legacy is the witness of Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. Many years before the Civil Rights movement and his son Martin’s famous “I have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963, Granddaddy King was already a strong advocate for the vulnerable and powerless. Thirteen years before that iconic speech in Washington D.C., Granddaddy King also had his own very special dream.

Dr. Alveda King is the daughter of A.D. King and Niece of Martin Luther King. Alveda gives us a glimpse into the heart and soul of her grandfather:

In 1950 my mother was pregnant with me and scared. She was looking for a doctor to perform a D&C abortion procedure. Granddaddy King told my mother:

“They (Planned Parenthood) are lying to you. That is not a lump of flesh. That’s my granddaughter. I saw her in a dream three years ago. She has bright skin and bright red hair and she’s going to bless many people.”

Research confirms that a father or grandfather’s reaction to an unplanned pregnancy is a significant influence on the mother’s decision to parent or abort the child.(1) Thankfully Granddaddy King stood up and defended the life of his unborn grandchild. Granddaddy and Alveda’s father promised to help her through that first unexpected pregnancy and Alveda was born to A. D. and Naomi Ruth Barber King on January 22, 1951. Over the years, Alveda’s mother recovered from her anger, finding grace in her relationship with Jesus Christ.

Years later the King family would lead millions of African Americans to great victories over the forces of racism. Granddaddy King’s famous sons would peacefully but powerfully advocate for the poor and oppressed African Americans whose civil rights, economic opportunity and God given dignity were being aborted by the institutionalized evil of racism.

Yet they also suffered a number of causalities. A.D. King died in a suspicious and tragic drowning accident a year after the assassination of his brother Martin Luther King. The death of Alveda’s father inflicted a deep wound on Alveda’s heart and soul at the same time the sexual revolution and abortion rights were in rapid ascent. Alveda shares:

During those years of my life, I made some scared and angry decisions, including having two of what was presented to me as “safe and legal abortions.” The first procedure was an involuntary abortion. The pro -abortion philosophy was empowering physicians to use their considerable influence to advocate for abortion. Sometimes they simply took matters in their own hands and boldly played God with vulnerable women and their unborn children.

Shortly before the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 I went to my doctor to ask why my monthly cycle had not resumed after the birth of my son. I did not ask for and did not want an abortion. The doctor said, “You certainly don’t need to be pregnant…let’s take a look.” He proceeded to perform a painful examination which resulted in a gush of blood and tissue emanating from my womb. He explained that he had performed a “local D and C.”

Sadly, the rise of pro abortion feminism was empowering men to embrace values that were radically different than those modeled by Granddaddy King and his famous sons. Rather than defending and protected the powerless entrusted to their care, men were being corrupted by the philosophy and practice of abortion rights and the rhetoric of choice.

Just a few short years after Martin Luther King was assassinated for his mission to protect and empower those oppressed by racism, black fathers were now participating in the death of their unborn black children; the same children that Dr Martin Luther King dreamed would one day live in a country “where children…will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” (Speech of MLK 28 August 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C.)

Alveda: I never was able to process the trauma from that forced abortion. Soon after the Roe v. Wade decision, I became pregnant again. There was adverse pressure and threat of violence from the baby’s father now that abortion was legal and readily accessible. The ease and convenience provided through Roe v. Wade made it too easy for me to make the fateful and fatal decision to abort our child.

Granddaddy King saved Alveda’s life in 1950. Twenty-five years later he once again stood tall and reached out to Alveda, now reeling after 2 unresolved abortion losses, to pull back from the precipice of deeper death and destruction:

Alveda: Granddaddy MLK, Sr. rescued me again in 1975. He and my son’s father promised to help me if I wouldn’t abort my next baby. I believed them, thank God.

But Alveda would still suffer the after affects of her abortion losses. She shares about the Shockwaves of Abortion and their impact on her life and family:

Over the next few years, I experienced medical problems. I had trouble bonding with my son, and his five siblings who were born after the abortions. I began to suffer from eating disorders, depression, nightmares, sexual dysfunctions and a host of other issues related to the abortion that I chose to have. I felt angry about both abortions, and very guilty about the abortion I chose to have. The guilt made me very ill.

My children have all suffered from knowing that they have a brother or sister that their mother chose to abort. Often they ask if I ever thought about aborting them and have said, “You killed our baby.” This is very painful for all of us. Also, my mother and grandparents were very sad to know about the loss of the baby. The aborted child’s father also regrets the abortion. If it had not been for Roe v. Wade, I would never have had that abortion. Thankfully, through God’s merciful healing we continue to recover and heal as a family from the pain and loss of those abortion losses.

When you look at the sacrifice and legacy of the King family in their battle for racial equality and justice, it is truly an abomination for Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocates to spread the propaganda that abortion is a woman’s civil right. The struggle for civil rights for African Americans was a movement led by men and women who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice; they were ready to take a courageous stand and if necessary give their lives for those oppressed by racism and violence. Granddaddy King and his sons Martin Luther and A.D. King, and many other brave African American men embodied this model of manhood and fatherhood.

As we come to another Father’s Day celebration, let’s remember these men and emulate their values and sacrifice. Let us pray for those minority communities that have been especially targeted by abortion providers, and the fathers, mothers and families that have been devastated by the Shockwaves of Abortion.

“The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.”– Dr Martin Luther King

“We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish as fools.” Dr. MLK, Jr.

Staten Island, NY – In route for a prayer vigil and march in SELMA, during an exclusive early morning report, Alveda King, FOX NEWS Contributor, KING RULES author and Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life tells FOX that “all eyes are now on Charleston. Violence is still looming and lurking.

“This isn’t time for violent riots or race baiting. It’s time for prayer and leadership. Officials at all levels, mayor, police, governor, National Guard, congress, president need to pray and enforce peace and justice.

“By the way, evil knows no color. My grandmother Alberta King was shot down and killed by a crazed black man while playing the organ in Ebenezer Church in Atlanta in 1974. My mother Naomi King, Daddy AD’s wife was in the ambulance with BigMama when she died. We didn’t riot, we prayed. Decisive prayerful and positive action is needed now! Granddaddy King said pray and forgive.

“Pray, don’t riot. People are being slaughtered in the womb, in their beds, and, for God’s sake, while worshipping in church. This isn’t just about race. It’s time for the human race of Acts 17:26 to PRAY FOR AMERICA!”

Ma’am, Our Prayers and Dollars Already Go to ProWoman/ProFamily Causes

June 17th, 2015

150617 blog image

Recently an anonymous 26-year-old graduate student has posted a threat on ProLifeAntiWoman.com declaring that she will have an abortion unless people donate $1 million between July 7 and July 10. She writes that if the money is raised on the website, she will “have the baby, give it up for adoption and every cent of that $1 million will be put in a trust fund for the child, which he or she will have access to when they turn 21.” If $1 million is not raised, she says she will refund what is donated and have the abortion. She writes of her motivation, “I hope to give the American public a concrete example that the conservative right in America doesn’t actually care about the life of a child, they care about controlling the lives and choices of women.”

Link: http://www.hlntv.com/article/2015/06/16/pay-stop-abortion-pro-life-anti-woman

Talk about flawed thinking. How would giving this angry young woman a million dollars help the millions of butchered women and their babies who have been harmed by legal abortion?

It won’t. God help us.

Please tell this young lady to do her homework. The Prolife Movement already donates hundreds of thousands of prayers, hours and dollars to the Pregnancy Care Center Movement, Women’s Healing and other Women Friendly Causes to help not just one selfish angry woman to get $1 million; but to help thousands of mothers, fathers and their babies to get a new lease on life. For a reality check, mothers generally don’t get paid a million dollars to birth each of their children.

As a post abortive mother of six living children, I promise you I didn’t charge anyone one million dollars to birth them. On the other hand, the abortions cost those babies their lives and a whole lot of pain. See “How can the dream survive.”

This young lady needs a serious reality check. Please visit priestsforlife.org to see who really cares!

Priests for Life leaders to take part in The Selma Project, June 19-20

June 12th, 2015

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: June 12, 2015

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Dr. Alveda C. King, full-time Director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life and niece of Martin Luther King Jr., will join Catherine Davis, founder of the Restoration Project and leader of the Selma Project, for a pro-life prayer rally and march June 19-20 in Selma, Alabama.

The event will use the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth – the oldest known celebration of the end of slavery in the United States – to highlight the tragedy of abortion in the African-American community. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and Bloody Sunday.

“When my uncle and other leaders marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965, they were marching against the injustice of racism,” Dr. King said. “Today we march because since 1973 the unborn in this country have been denied the most fundamental human right, the right to life.”

Fr. Pavone noted that Dr. King joined the team at Priests for Life in 2003 after the two met at the March for Life and discussed its similarities to the civil rights marches of the 1960s.

“The pro-life movement is the civil rights movement of the 21st century,” he said.

Dr. King noted that Priests for Life and its African-American Outreach led several Pro-Life Freedom Rides in the South in 2010 to draw attention to the way the abortion industry has targeted African-Americans for extinction. By returning to the Pettus Bridge just three months after the anniversary of the 1965 civil rights march there, organizers hope to once again underscore that connection between pro-life and civil rights.

The Selma Project also will highlight the unscrupulous practices of abortionists nationwide, and the fact that abortion is the most unregulated surgical industry. A local abortionist, Samuel Lett, runs the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic, which should be licensed by the state because more than 10 abortions are performed there each month. But Lett denies performing abortions, and although a coalition of pro-life leaders has documented evidence that he does, the Alabama Department of Health has yet to initiate any kind of action against him.

“This Juneteenth has the potential to be the most vibrant and historic observance yet of this important day, because awareness is growing, among blacks and whites alike, of the unspeakable devastation wrought by abortion,” Fr. Pavone said. “Nobody who honors the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., and nobody who claims to admire the civil rights movement, can ignore abortion any longer, or be silent any longer about it. In Selma and across America, the violence must stop now!”

The rally will begin at 7 p.m. CT June 19 at Christ the King Church in Selma. On June 20, marchers will gather on the Selma side of the bridge at 8:15 a.m. CT and walk across the bridge toward Montgomery.

For more information on the event, go to www.JuneteenthAAO.com.

An Amazing Thing …

June 11th, 2015

150611 blog image2

An amazing thing happened in Baltimore this week. Our leadership team was part of an unlikely coalition of leaders where we spoke at two panel discussions/community forums regarding the state of Baltimore, the nation and the world.

While sitting among leaders from the political, law enforcement community, spiritual, economic, and yes the NAACP; I realized my Uncle MLK was on to something when he said that “we are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.”

That garment was on us as we met and talked together in Baltimore. A highlight of what turned out to be another leg of my “Peace and Justice Book Tour” was the opportunity to read excerpts from my KING RULES children’s book to school children at a charter school and to another group of children in front of the Billie Holiday Statue on the sometimes controversial and turbulent Pennsylvania Avenue in Baltimore.

There is hope for Baltimore, America and the world. Keep praying.

Love from the road.
