Fr. Pavone: Ample evidence to probe sale of baby parts

15234702355_62d24fdc03_b
“Former prosecutors testified before a Congressional committee today that there is ample evidence to warrant further investigation into the abortion industry’s longtime practice of harvesting and selling aborted babies’ body parts.  I would add that there’s a moral imperative that our nation put a halt to this horrendous practice that exploits women and treats non-consenting humans like lab rats.”

“Former federal prosecutors will testify at today’s House hearing on the pricing of fetal tissue that there is probable cause to believe that abortion businesses have violated federal law,” stated Fr. Pavone.  “We know that they have been violating the law for decades; the panel’s work will confirm this.”

Today’s Pro-Life Reflection: I love ice cream, I love my mother, I love my wife, I love God.

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“This is how we know what love is: he laid down his life for us” (1 John 3:16).

Reflection: The word “love” is the most misused, abused, and confused word in the English language. We say: I love ice cream, I love my mother, I love my wife, I love God. And some use “love” to justify abortion. The real meaning of love is found at the Cross. Love says, “I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person.” Abortion says, “I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.”

Prayer: Lord I commit myself today to the love of others, especially those most in need. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Keep Away From Idols

idolatry

“Dear children, keep away from idols” (1 John 5:21). 

Reflection: Ginette Paris wrote a book called “The Sacrament of Abortion.” She claims that abortion is a sacred ritual sacrifice to the goddess Artemis. As patroness of animals and of hunters, Artemis represents the ability to both protect and kill. The so-called right to abortion means that the mother can give either life or death to her child.

Prayer: Lord, free your people from the deception of idolatry, witchcraft, and false worship, which threaten not only our relationship with you, but the lives of others. Preserve us in true worship and effective justice. Amen.

Pro-Life Award given to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback for passage of SB 95 – State AG vows vigorous defense of dismemberment ban currently enjoined

 

IMG_9020The dismemberment ban is not voided, but it remains enjoined from going into effect while litigation continues. The ban will be vigorously defended by the legal team of Attorney General Derek Schmidt.

Judge Hendricks ruled that barbaric dismemberment abortions cannot be outlawed because the 1859 Kansas Constitution contains a right to abortion.

In his acceptance remarks on Friday, Gov. Brownback urged that Kansas’ strong bipartisan passage of SB 95 be repeated across the nation and in the nation’s Capital.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Human Life, Belongs Only to God

March_for_Life,_Washington,_D_C__(2013)

“Life, especially human life, belongs only to God: for this reason whoever attacks human life, in some way attacks God himself.” – John Paul II, The Gospel of Life, n.9. 

Reflection: No human being can own another, not even one’s own child. God entrusts us to the care of one another, but he alone remains the owner of human life. That’s why we cannot throw it away, no matter how small, frail, or inconvenient it may sometimes be.

Prayer: Lord, may all people acknowledge you as the only master of human life. May those who defend life understand that they are not only defending their brothers and sisters, but are also defending you!

Pro-Woman is Pro-Life, and Pro-Life is Pro-Woman

Almost a year ago, I had the honor of meeting a young woman named Andrea. Months earlier, on learning she was pregnant, she had taken the first drug in the RU-486 abortion regimen, and immediately regretted her decision. Racing against the clock, she found a doctor about an hour away from her home in New Jersey who would immediately begin a reversal protocol that stops the starvation of the baby. Her son Gabriel was born healthy on Dec. 31, 2014.

Andrea and her boyfriend are not married. Andrea was in nursing school when their unexpected pregnancy propelled her to Planned Parenthood. She worried that the baby’s birth would spell the end of her dreams.

How does she feel now? You only have to look at her Facebook posts to find out. …

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: See Their Dignity

baby-corbis

“Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord?” – Ex.4:11

Reflection: God does not make mistakes. When a human being is alive, it is because God wants him or her to be alive. People do not have to measure up to our standards or expectations in order to have dignity and deserve protection.

Prayer: Lord, I pray for all those who are disabled, frail, and ill. Give them your strength and peace, and give us the eyes to see their dignity and value.

Today’s Pro-Life Reflection: After the abortion, I felt dirty, ashamed …

abortion left empty and alone

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“’Come now, let us reason together,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool’” (Isaiah 1:18).

Reflection: A woman wrote, “After the abortion, I felt dirty, ashamed, like a low ant below all else. I felt betrayed, like a betrayer. Something which took such little time left a permanent scar. I sat in the rain the rest of the day, occasionally walking, crying, and not knowing why I really had the abortion.”

Prayer: Come, God of hope; lift up all burdened by their abortion. Make them whole again. Amen.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW YORK — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement this morning regarding a newly released video of a conversation with Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress:

“We have consistently maintained that Planned Parenthood profits from the sale of baby body parts. This video shows that clearly. Making a profit on the sale of body parts is against federal law. Despite the convictions of some abortion advocates, Planned Parenthood is not above the law. It is time to hold them accountable for their actions, and it is time for us to hold our public officials accountable to their responsibility to properly investigate and prosecute this illegal enterprise.”

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.
