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

“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” (Acts 9:4)

Reflection: January 25, the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, concludes the week of prayer for Christian Unity. The Church prays that the whole world may convert to Christ, upon seeing strong unity among his followers. Christian Unity is not about pretending that there are no differences between denominations, but rather it is about recognizing and building on what we hold in common. The pro-life movement continues to be one of the most powerful practical ways that Christians are coming together.

Prayer: Lord, we praise You for the conversions taking place each day. Bring the world to unity in You. Amen.

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

“The disciples asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Then Jesus beckoned a child to come to him, placed it in their midst, and said, ‘Amen, I say to you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven’” (Matthew 18:1-3).

Reflection: It is an understatement to say that children are loved by God or important to Him. They are central, and they exemplify certain virtues and attitudes God wants us to have.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, keep our minds clear about who is most important, and keep our hearts focused on the children, that we may learn from them. Amen.

Nancy Pelosi: Is a child in the womb a human being or not? Answer the question!

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

NEW YORK, NY — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is ducking questions about the humanity of the unborn again.

 

While discussing her opposition to two abortion-related bills in the House of Representatives, she twice refused to answer two reporters’ simple question: Is a child in the womb at 20 weeks’ gestation a human being?

 

Here’s part of the exchange between Mrs. Pelosi and the reporters from CNSnews.com

CNSNews.com asked: “My question is pretty simple. On the abortion issue, I understand your position on the legislation, but even the legislation aside, when it comes to the matter of whether or not an unborn child is a human being at 20 weeks gestation, what is your personal take on it. If it is not a human being, then what do you believe it is?

Pelosi responded: “You know it is really interesting that you would come to these meetings to talk about it. The fact is is what we have said: The life and the health of the mother is what is preeminent in when a decision is made about a woman’s reproductive health. It isn’t an ideological fight, it is a personal health issue.

(Read the whole story here: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/lauretta-brown/pelosi-wont-say-if-unborn-baby-20-weeks-human-being)

 

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement about Mrs. Pelosi’s refusal to answer a simple question:

 

“Here we go again with Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to answer a question that is not only scientifically certain but that also falls within the responsibility of lawmakers to know. It wasn’t long ago that Nancy Pelosi and I engaged in a public back-and-forth on this same point (see www.lettertonancy.com). She said I was being hysterical rather than intellectual. OK, Nancy Pelosi, let’s be intellectual. Why don’t you start by answering the question?”

 

Father Pavone issued a new invitation to the public to go to www.lettertonancy.com to express their dismay at the intellectual dishonesty of a lawmaker who should know the difference between serving the public and killing the public.

Brazilian Senator to attend National Memorial for the Pre-born

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A Brazilian senator  leading a delegation from his country at the March for Life will be a special guest at the National Memorial for the Pre-born and Their Mothers and Fathers on Jan. 22 at Constitution Hall., 1776 D. St NW at 18th Street.

Senator Magno Malta and his wife, Congresswoman Lauriete Malta, are leading a delegation of 15 that includes former Congressman Luiz Bassuma.

The National Memorial is an annual interdenominational service designed to bring Christians and clergy together in prayer before the March for Life.

Father Frank Pavone, president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council and national director of Priests for Life, will deliver the sermon. Christian music artist and Dove Award winner Matthew Ward will perform.

The service will begin with a Catholic Mass at 7:30 a.m., and the National Memorial will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 10:30 a.m. Doors will open at 7 a.m.

Senator Malta is a lawmaker and a Christian minister for the Assemblies of God in Brazil. He and his wife are also well-known Gospel singers and recording artists. “My wife, Congresswoman Lauriete Malta, and I will join the March for Life to thank all pro-life Americans who work to secure the fundamental human right to life. We march because we grieve the holocaust of 57 million baby Americans whose lives were taken by abortionists since the Supreme Court rulings on January 22, 1973,” Senator Magno Malta said.

Senator Malta explained that abortion is legal in Brazil if pregnancy risks the life of a mother; if the baby was conceived during rape; and for babies diagnosed with the ‘fetal deformity’ of anencephaly.

“In Brazil, people of goodwill believe in freedom for persons of all ages, born and unborn. Therefore, we are working to prevent the holocaust of innocent Brazilian babies,” the senator said. “We humbly ask God to help all Brazilians choose life, not death. Pro-life Americans have saved many lives. Still, we Brazilians must prevent a legal holocaust like those we have seen in the United States and other nations.”

State of the Union Address offers more death for babies

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

 

“The Negro cannot win if he is willing to sacrifice the future of his children for personal and immediate comfort and safety.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

President Obama, in his State of the Union address last night, said, “If we’re going to have arguments, let’s have arguments. But let’s make them debates worthy of this body and worthy of this country.  We still may not agree on a woman’s right to choose, but surely, we can agree it’s a good thing that teen pregnancies and abortions are nearing all-time lows, and that every woman should have access to the health care that she needs.”

What the President didn’t say is that abortion and abortifacients are not health care. They are reproductive deterrents that kill babies and sometimes their mothers. Abortion often hurts women. In RECALL ABORTION, Janet Morana outlines the harmful impact, of abortion, and #healingtheshockwavesofabortion further reveals why the President’s agenda isn’t good for women.

 Senator Joni Ernst (IA), in the Republican response to the President’s speech, listed what the new Congress intends to do for life, saying: “And we’ll defend life, because protecting our most vulnerable is an important measure of any society.”

There is s shift in our political climate. We must pray for transformation of hearts. In my KING RULES “Defend Life” chapter, the sanctity of life is highlighted.

I am so glad that my parents AD and Naomi King didn’t take the advice of “The Birth Control League” which later became “Planned Parenthood;” they chose life for me instead.

My grandfather Daddy King convinced my mother that because he had seen me in a dream three years before my conception, he knew that God wanted me to live. Mother accepted his promise to be there for her. He kept his word.

If Granddaddy were here today, he would urge us to pray for our government and all leaders, that God will guide them into serving with grace, peace, faith, hope and love. Amen

Today’s Pro-life Reflection

Monday, January 19th, 2015

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

“I will praise your name, O Lord … for you have rescued me” (Psalm 54:8-9).

Reflection: Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout pregnancy, agreed to let her name be used in a case she hardly understood. She agreed to lie about how she became pregnant so that the case would have a better chance. She never did have the abortion. Eventually, she spoke out publicly at pro-abortion events, and even worked in an abortion mill. Now, she is completely pro-life and works to end abortion.

Prayer: Lord, I thank you for Norma’s conversion, a sign of hope for our culture. Amen.

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

“Many Christians … are jointly involved in bold projects aimed at changing the world by inculcating respect for the rights and needs of everyone, especially … the defenseless “ (John Paul II, “Ut Unum Sint).

Reflection: From January 18 to the 25th, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is observed by many denominations. All Christians, by definition, acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Savior of the world. That affirmation of Christ requires that we work to fight injustice.
The pro-life movement continues to be the arena where these efforts are most visible and valuable.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, may we be one, as You and Your Father are one. Amen.

“Stand firm and immovable, devoting yourselves completely to the work of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58).

Reflection: An 11-year old girl wrote recently: “My mother and I are taking a bus and will be coming to the March for Life. My teacher said that I will receive 0′s on any work that I miss and it can’t be made up. I told her missing a day at school in order to stand up for life is more important and I’m willing to suffer the consequences.”

Prayer: Lord, may we imitate this young girl’s willingness to sacrifice for the cause of life! Amen.

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

“They have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony” (Revelation 12:11). 

Reflection: At the March for Life in Washington, women who have had abortions lead the way. They are the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. They march at the very beginning of the immense crowd, and carry signs that say “I Regret My Abortion.” Then, in the late afternoon, they gather at the steps of the Supreme Court, and share their testimonies one by one. Fathers of aborted babies are also there, with signs saying, “I Regret Lost Fatherhood.”

Prayer: Lord, bless these courageous men and women, and thank you for their powerful witness. Amen
