TITUSVILLE, FL — Another undercover call was released today by Priests for Life, working in conjunction with Abortion Free New Mexico, revealing late -term abortions of healthy babies carried by healthy mothers in the state of Florida.

Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement about the call:

“Pro-abortion extremists demand that late-term abortions must remain legal in America for women whose lives are placed at risk if they don’t have access to them. This undercover investigation turns the tables on this pro-abortion fear mongering.

“In fact, in this new undercover phone call placed to Presidential Women’s Center in West Palm Beach, FL, the abortion worker tells the caller that a pre-screening is done before obtaining a late-term abortion at 22 weeks. The screening, however, is not to determine what life-threatening complication mandates the procedure; instead the abortion staffer reveals, ‘We want to make sure you’re healthy, that’s why we do the screening.’

“When the caller then specifically asks, ‘There doesn’t have to be anything wrong with the baby?’ to obtain the abortion, she is given an emphatic ‘No.’

“It’s time to move beyond the lies and disinformation being peddled by pro-abortion extremists. U.S. elected officials rely on accurate information and this investigation exposes that late-term abortions are being obtained by healthy women carrying healthy babies who by 20 weeks gestation are fully capable of feeling pain.

“Please share these undercover recordings with your U.S. Senators and urge them to support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1922.”

Holiday Surprises – POTUS Promises, Peace for Jerusalem, An American Princess, Tax Cuts, and Moore…

December 6th, 2017

171206 blog image

“When peripherals collide, convergence is imminent.” Evangelist Alveda King www.civilrightsfortheunborn.com

It’s December 2017, and Christmas bells are ringing again in America as President Trump’s promise keeping roll is continuing. The POTUS “we will say Merry Christmas again” mantra is resonating. Meanwhile, President Trump’s support for Israel, undergirded by our “prayers for the peace of Jerusalem,” is encouraging evidence that God is blessing us. POTUS is expected to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol today.

“Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.” Psalms 122:6 NLT

Of course, as is to be expected, “fake news” isn’t on holiday. This time media imps are trying to stir up a “feud” between newly engaged American actress Meghan Markle and her sister. Prince Harry has placed a “sparkle” on the “modern day Cinderella’s finger.” Up until now, Ms. Markle’s sister Samantha Grant has been sharing fond and sweet memories of Ms. Markle’s childhood. Now, those sweet dreams are becoming bitter, fanned by the ire seeking fake media. Ms. Markle’s ethnicity, evidence of the rising “One Blood/One Human Race sentiments sweeping the globe, adds spice to the conversation.

“No matter our skin color, we all bleed the same red blood…” President Donald John Trump

Let’s not miss out on the shameless fake news efforts to defame the much-needed tax cuts that are being ironed out in our Capitol. Families and businesses need a financial blessing this year!

As if all of this holiday intrigue wasn’t enough, the media sharks are still snapping at the heels of Senate candidate Roy Moore in Alabama. We can only imagine the magnitude of their frustration as the Judge keeps running ahead of the pack.

John 7:51 – “Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?

Finally, let’s consider that attempts at Agape Love can sometimes do more harm than good especially when cross-cultural situations without sufficient efforts to bring understanding of the local culture can cause resistance to change. At the end of the day, our goal should always be to Love, forgive and reconcile to our human brothers and sisters.

Enough for now. I’m off to Rome for work and maybe a little holiday cheer; with this song in my heart. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

In Our Nation’s Capital, 26-Week Abortion Scheduled No Medical Emergency or Fetal Anomaly

November 30th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

732-757-9087

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today from his Washington, DC office:

“Here in our nation’s Capital, as in cities from coast to coast, healthy babies of healthy mothers are being killed at stages where they can survive outside the womb, as our 12th undercover phone call, released today, reveals.

“With the collaboration of our colleagues at Abortion Free New Mexico, these phone calls show that someone can easily make an appointment to have an abortion late in pregnancy. This particular call resulted in an appointment for an abortion at over 26 weeks, and the clinic personnel treated it in a routine way.

“Even people who identify as pro-choice reject abortion at these late stages of pregnancy. As a Knights of Columbus/Marist poll last year revealed, almost six in ten Americans support the protection of babies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This includes 56 percent of people who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice,’ and 49 percent of those who identify as Democrats.”

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico added, “In our nation’s capital, late term abortions are being performed on viable babies through 26 weeks of pregnancy. Washington Surgi-Clinic is performing these abortions on healthy women carrying healthy babies with no questions asked. Now is the time for Congress to act swiftly to end this scourge of late term abortion.”

This and the previous eleven undercover calls, which show abortion appointments being made even at 32 weeks of pregnancy, can be heard at www.PriestsForLife.org/LateTermAbortion.

Citizens are urged to take action in two ways, first by spreading the links to these phone calls on social media, and second by contacting their U.S. Senators and urging them to vote for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1922, which would protect children in the womb who can feel pain, hence preventing the abortions of those who are at 20 weeks of development or more.

Guidance on these action steps, and the opportunity to sign up for action alerts, is at www.StopAbortionNow.org.

Abortion Clinic Schedules Appointment for Healthy Mother to Abort Healthy Baby at 32 Weeks

Priests for Life undercover calls continue to reveal what most Americans reject

TITUSVILLE, FL — As part of its late-term abortion education project, Priests for Life today released another undercover phone call showing that healthy mothers of healthy children can obtain a legal abortion in the United States even at 32 weeks of pregnancy.

“Our goal here is very simple: To reveal to the American people that healthy mothers are aborting healthy babies even in the final months of pregnancy, and that this is legal activity,” said National Director Father Frank Pavone. “We are revealing this because many of our fellow citizens simply do not know or do not believe this is happening. We show them the evidence. Knowing that it is happening is the first step towards stopping it.”

The call released today was made last week to the clinic of abortionist Warren Hern in Boulder, Colorado. Hern is the author of the medical textbook Abortion Practice, which uses the words “decapitate” and “dismember” to describe the abortion procedure.

The caller, posing as a woman at around 30 weeks of pregnancy, made no reference to any fetal anomalies or maternal health problems. She simply stated, “My husband and I just split up and I just don’t want to continue the pregnancy.”

The four-day abortion procedure was scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28, at which point the clinic pointed out she would be at 32 weeks of pregnancy.

The undercover call was carried out with the assistance of Abortion Free New Mexico. Tara Shaver, who represents that organization, said, “This undercover investigation reveals that Abortionist Warren Hern in Boulder, Colorado is willing to perform an abortion at 32 weeks of pregnancy for $25,000 with virtually no questions asked. Late-term abortions have no place in a civilized society, yet in America they are performed on healthy women carrying healthy babies all across this nation. This should be a wakeup call for Americans who refuse to believe that this is happening.”

The call was the eighth in a series of calls that Priests for Life will continue to commission across the nation. Previous calls were made to the Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, NM, where our callers successfully made abortion appointments at 25, 30, and even 33 weeks.

“Even people who identify as pro-choice reject abortion at these late stages of pregnancy,” Father Pavone said. “As a Knights of Columbus/Marist poll last year revealed, almost six in ten Americans support the protection of babies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This includes 56 percent of people who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice,’ and 49 percent of those who identify as Democrats.

“In the light of these facts,” Father Pavone said, “we are urging all U.S. Senators to vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 1622), to protect these children starting at 20 weeks of their development.”

Evangelist Alveda King noted in Influential Christian Roster while urging Prolife Votes for Alabama

November 20th, 2017

171120 blog image

Atlanta, GA. “Being included in the ‘Newsmax 100 Most Influential Evangelicals In America’ roster brings a new level of accountability to my lifelong journey of service to God and humanity,” said Evangelist Alveda King, Founder of Alveda King Ministries and Director of Civil Rights for The Unborn for Priests for Life.

The announcement reached King while she was “praying over the situation regarding the looming Alabama Senate race.” As a longtime prayerful supporter of Judge Roy Moore, King says she is “concerned that voters will be distracted by the media fury involving unsubstantiated accusations.

“While we must be ever mindful of the need to protect our women and children, we must also remain focused on the issues at hand because every vote counts in the race for life. In Alabama, Judge Moore stands for the sanctity of human life from the womb to the tomb. His opposing candidate Doug Jones who is an abortion advocate does not. Remember, Life is a Civil Right. In this election, and indeed in every election, as the One Blood Human Race of Acts 17:26, we must always vote our values, with life from the womb to the tomb as a priority.

“Jesus said: “Ye who are without sin, cast the first stone.” It’s important to remember, especially during the coming Thanksgiving and Christmas season that Christ’s lasting mission is to heal rather than condemn humanity. A divine insight: “Mercy overcomes judgment.”

“We are currently in a climate of playing the “blame game” while accusations are running rampant. As a woman, I appreciate the opportunities now available to women and indeed all victims of abuse to come forward to receive healing. However, in the process we must leave the doors open for repentance rather than fostering destruction across the board.

“In the case of Judge Roy Moore what is lacking for many is the certain confirmation that the accusations are true. On the other hand, the sincere testimonies of those who have known and supported Judge Moore through the years, mine included, far outnumber the current charges against him.

“Meanwhile, we must remember that we should never rush to judgment before the genuine facts and not opinions and fake news are considered. True justice demands that any judgment must be withheld until the real truth is revealed.

“If we fail to pursue these truths, we run the risk of creating and fostering a climate of further injustices for our unborn children and ourselves as well as further establishing a precedent for increasing unjust condemnation in the future.”

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

Evangelist King, a niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., King is a former representative of the 28th District in the Georgia House, and a best-selling author, a minister, and frequent FOX News Channel and NEWSMAX contributor. In addition to these roles, she has served as an educator, entertainer, and legislator, and in her own words, she serves as a devoted “Guardian of The King Family Legacy.”

Fr. Pavone applauds SCOTUS decision to hear pregnancy center case

November 14th, 2017

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: November 13, 2017

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

TITUSVILLE, FL — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and President of the National Pro-life Religious Council, issued the following statement today regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision to hear a case involving pregnancy resource centers and the First Amendment.

“With free speech – particularly pro-life free speech – being trampled all over the county, it’s great news that the Supreme Court will decide on the constitutionality of a California law that forces pregnancy centers to refer clients for abortion,” Father Pavone said. “Protecting mothers and their children from abortion is the very reason these centers exist. Because this pro-woman/pro-life approach is so successful, and because pregnancy centers vastly outnumber abortion businesses, it’s no wonder that abortion advocates would seek to dilute and even silence their message. Every success in a pregnancy center is a loss of business for the abortion industry.”

“Priests for Life works closely with NIFLA and with other pregnancy center networks. The people volunteering in these centers are among the most caring, self-giving people in the world. They pour out their lives in order to save lives. Trying to force them to cooperate in taking lives is as absurd as it is immoral,” Father Pavone concluded. “I am confident that the Supreme Court will vindicate their rights.”

Fr. Frank Pavone is National Director of Priests for Life, the largest ministry in the Church focused exclusively on ending abortion, and is the President of the interdenominational National Pro-life Religious Council.

Judge Moore, NAACP, National Anthem, Church Shootings – America must cease fire or self-destruct

November 10th, 2017

171019 blog image2

Atlanta, GA – “For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed; lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’” Acts 28:27

While praying for a response to the NAACP wanting to ban the National Anthem here comes the news of a very questionable attack on Judge Roy Moore. Meanwhile, we are still reeling from the church massacre in Texas. You’d think America would finally grow tired of venomous attacks on just about everything and seek divine intervention from our troubles. Yet, in the midst of violent natural disasters and human bloodbaths, we keep attacking each other rather than praying. It’s time for America to have a heart transplant and a blood transfusion.

The NAACP is reportedly offended by these lines in verse three of the National Anthem, and is seeking to repeal the song:

“No refuge could save the hireling and slave, from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave…”

Francis Scott Key, who wrote the lyrics of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” was reportedly a slave owner and fierce opponent of abolition and according to some accounts may even have sparked the first race riot in Washington, D.C.

So as a Caucasian slave owner Key wrote the song in outrage of the enslavement of one of his Caucasian friends who had been kidnapped and forced into slavery while at the same time was glad that his Black slaves who were also fighting in the war were killed? Yet, the verse speaks of men both Caucasian and Black who fought in the war being enslaved or used by the British. Confusing isn’t it?

Whether we believe “The Star-Spangled Banner” is racist or not, we may never know the whole truth since we didn’t write it and we weren’t there when it was written. However, healing is available to us today if we can only repent of our own sins, forgive those who have sinned against us, love each other and learn live together in peace.

As the Acts 17:26 “one blood human race,” let’s leave off strife and idolatry, and call a cease fire with our words and our weapons; and let’s avoid self-destruction. Pray for America and the world.

Evangelist Alveda King continues King Legacy Series with New GG’S COOKBOOK

November 2nd, 2017

Atlanta, GA – Why is Alveda King writing a cookbook? Who even knew she could cook? Does anybody care? In 2015 Evangelist King, prolife civil rights activist and Christian minister released KING RULES, her second print release in a series of “King Family Legacy” books. Her first legacy book SONS OF THUNDER: KING FAMILY LEGACY was written in the 1990s and was considered by some to be “controversial.” In 2016, King released AMERICA RETURN TO GOD which continues with narratives of how her relationship to the bloodline of her famous uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ties in with her work in the 21st century.

In 2017, the “creative evangelist” continues her “legacy assignment” with the soon to be released KING TRUTHS. Added to the series is something King considers to be “lighter fare” in the form of her new cookbook, GG’S HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS COOKBOOK which is currently available online as an e-book. Print copies should be available mid-November.

Along with publishing books, King includes writing and singing original music and producing film contributions in her “arsenal.” She also produces children’s books and artistic projects for her “flock of millennial and post millennial mentees”.

“Having been born into the bloodline of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., I take the role and responsibility of being a guardian to the King Family Legacy very seriously. My parents, Rev. A. D. King and Mrs. Naomi Ruth Barber King, assisted by my grandparents Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. and Mrs. Alberta Williams King instilled in me the importance of putting God, family and community first in my lifetime agenda,” says King. “Here in 2017 the perfect opportunity to combine our family legacy of faith, hope, love and hospitality with solutions to the critical problems of our day just seemed too good to pass up.”

A satisfied reader penned this review, “This cookbook makes you feel like you’re in the kitchen with Alveda King (daughter of A.D. King and Naomi King and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) and her family. I’m not much of a cook but I’m going to try some of these recipes. I enjoyed the QR codes (for videos) that allow you to get to know the King Family like never before. My granddaughter enjoyed the videos as much, if not more, than I did.”

King is Founder of Alveda King Ministries and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life. She uses her “God given gifts and talents to glorify God in the earth.” In GG’s Cookbook, her new culinary offerings are being served up during the holidays; “just in time to bring love and reconciliation to the tables around the world.”

Priests for Life’s Alveda King Addresses Florida Catholic Dioceses at Statewide Respect Life Conference

October 24th, 2017

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: October 24, 2017

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

TITUSVILLE, FL – Two of the major ministries of Priests for Life, and one of its medical advisors, were represented at the annual conference organized this past weekend by all the Catholic Dioceses of Florida, the home of the new, expanded Priests for Life headquarters.

Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, was a featured speaker at the 31st annual Florida statewide Respect Life conference. The theme of the event was “For the Least of Them” and it was hosted by the Archdiocese of Miami in Weston. Representatives of the Catholic dioceses in the state were among the 450 people in attendance.

Ms. King gave two talks during the conference. In the first, she described the devastating impact abortion has had on the African-American community because of abortion providers like Planned Parenthood targeting minorities.

In her second speech, attended primarily by priests, Ms. King talked about the vital role of priests and pastors in defending the unborn. She also distributed copies of “Proclaiming the Message of Life” by Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. The book gives pro-life sermon suggestions for all three cycles of Mass readings in the Catholic liturgy.

Ms. King linked the legalization of abortion to the 1963 Supreme Court decision that removed prayer from public schools and led to a creeping secular humanism that ultimately was able to dehumanize the child in the womb.

“By dehumanizing that child,” she said, “then it’s OK for the mother to do whatever she wants to do.”

Sharing personally from her own life experiences, she said her mother had considered aborting her, until her grandfather intervened, and how she herself had two abortions before her conversion to the pro-life cause.

“I bought the lie,” she admitted.

Ms. King urged priests to speak about abortion from the pulpit and not to worry that their words will be hurtful to women and men in their congregations who might be suffering the after-effects of abortion. To the contrary, she said, clergy who speak openly about abortion “are really setting people free.”

In a letter of greeting that Ms. King read at the conference, Father Pavone announced that the ministry’s move from New York City to Titusville had been completed and that the organization is still hiring staff and welcoming volunteers.

Addressing conference attendees, Father Pavone wrote:

“All of us at Priests for Life thank you for your commitment to the most important and urgent task our nation and our Church face right now, and that is to restore full and equal protection to the children in the womb. This is the priority meaning of the term “pro-life” and the most fundamental goal of the pro-life movement. This is, in fact, the civil rights movement of today, as Alveda first told me when we began working together almost twenty years ago.

Friends, we will succeed in this task, but only if we work together and let no divisions stand in our way. Let us hasten to victory!”

Priests for Life medical advisor Dr. Anthony Levatino also addressed the conference, sharing the deeply personal story of how the tragic death of his young daughter ultimately led him to stop performing abortions and to speak out for the unborn. In 2015, Dr. Levatino marched with the women and men of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, carrying a sign that read “I Regret Performing Abortions.”

Also at the Respect Life conference, Donna Gardner, director of Rachel’s Vineyard for the Diocese of Palm Beach, spoke about the way men are wounded by abortion and her efforts to bring the post-abortion healing program inside men’s prisons. Rachel’s Vineyard operates under the umbrella of Priests for Life.

Conference attendees from around the state of Florida were encouraged to contact Priests for Life for opportunities for pro-life volunteer activities and paid positions at the new, expanded Priests for Life headquarters in Titusville.
