Black Women Challenge Politicians and Hollywood: We are “Soul Sisters” – Let’s Talk

In response to mounting abortion mania from Black politicians and Hollywood Celebrities, Black activists are crying out. The current opposition to the “Heartbeat Bill” that will save the lives of countless babies and their mothers is unconscionable, taking on nightmare proportions of illogical justification. Consequently, Black Prolife activists urge opponents across the spectrum of Hollywood, politics and every walk of life to “meet in the public square” for a “come to Jesus” encounter. We should not be enemies. We have a common cause, to live, to grow and prosper. There has to be a better way to escape racism, abuse and poverty than killing our own; and not just by gun violence and Black on Black crime. Abortion is the number one culprit; killing millions of us as our women and children are being led to the slaughter.

The women are part of a larger group of African American leaders, the National Black Prolife Coalition, who see abortion as a cruel detriment to the growth of their communities.

“This Holy Week is the perfect time to pray for mothers and their unborn children. Thank God that Mary did not abort Jesus; even though her pregnancy was inconvenient in the eyes of many. Here in the 21st century, the infanticide and risks to a mother’s health are warning signals that abortion is never a healthy option for women. Black women suffer the highest risk of loss by abortion. How can the dream survive if we murder the children,” said Evangelist Alveda King.

“Gabrielle Union, Tracee Elliss Ross and Uzo Aduba are Planned Parenthood’s Ministers of Propaganda paid to ensure Georgia’s Black abortion rate remains at 62% or higher. Their absence from this state is welcomed since their presence and propaganda aids Planned Parenthood’s Negro Project’s genocide,” said Catherine Davis.

“So many children are denied their most basic human right – the right to life, with black babies topping the abortion list. Their civil rights trampled, their precious little bodies discarded like dung. What about the dream Dr. King so courageously worked for, marched for and ultimately died for? Sadly, when he died much of the ‘dream’ died with him but that’s not okay. We must revitalize the dream — for the very lives of all God’s children,” added Day Gardner.

“For decades, Planned Parenthood’s slick advertising has promoted the genocide against communities of color. They target our children for death, and use Gabrielle Union, Tracee Elliss Ross And Uzo Aduba to convince women to hate their children and kill them.” Denise Walker continued, “These women are not leaders – they are executioners. Shame on them for hating Black, Latina and Asian children!”

“So you legalized infanticide and then you legalized marijuana to drug us so we’ll forget about killing our babies. #GodisLife,” added Angela King.

“The black African seed that survived the slave trade, the trans-Atlantic passage and 400 years of slavery, lynching, and Jim Crow has been surrendered to the abortionist. The black vote, hard won to alleviate suffering, has become an instrument of death for children worldwide as we elect politicians lacking knowledge and basic respect for human life. Under the leadership of Democratic President Bill Clinton these same politicians showed similar disrespect for the liberty of young blacks as they voted to enact federal and state crime laws, Georgia SB440 and SB441, supporting mass incarceration that promised to keep blacks locked up beyond the age of reproduction, supporting the racist eugenicist ‘plan for peaceful genocide.’ Jesus Christ substitutes Himself for the ‘least of these,’ none less than the unborn or the prisoner, to insure ‘justice for all!’ Black lives matter, but ‘the souls of black folks’ matter more! Let’s come together with the God’s People’s Agenda and ponder the question: What constitutes human suffering and how can it be alleviated?” said Dr. Loretto Grier Cudjoe.

“As a child conceived in rape, it bothers me that it’s acceptable to sacrifice children like me for the sins of their fathers. Abortion is the #1 cause of death in the Black Community. For these misguided Black American female entertainers to promote the destruction of their own race is unconscionable,” concluded Lori Hoye.

“I had been like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter; I did not realize that they had plotted against me, saying, ‘Let us destroy the tree and its fruit; let us cut [them] off from the land of the living, that their names be remembered no more.’” Jeremiah 11:19

Memorial Service Will Honor Babies Killed by Kermit Gosnell

NEW YORK — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement regarding the National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Gosnell’s Clinic, to take place at noon on Saturday, Oct. 24, at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia:

“In 2010, the Philadelphia abortion clinic of Kermit Gosnell was raided, for reasons unrelated to abortion, and in the course of that raid, the body parts of aborted children were discovered in bags, jars and cartons in the freezer and other places around the filthy clinic.

“These babies were denied the dignity of a proper funeral even though Priests for Life, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the Charismatic Episcopal Church requested of the Medical Examiner that the bodies be released for that purpose. Instead, the babies were secretly cremated and their ashes interred at Laurel Hill Cemetery.

“At Priests for Life, we named these children in a religious service in 2013 and now we will lead a memorial service to recognize their dignity and honor their memory.

“We call on America to remember the horrific case of Kermit Gosnell, who now sits in prison for life because of the babies he killed even after birth. And we call on America to honor the bodies of all aborted children by visiting their gravesites. The National Day of Remembrance, of which Saturday’s service is a part, does this around the country, and is co-sponsored by Priests for Life, Citizens for a Pro-life Society, and Pro-life Action League. See www.AbortionMemorials.com for details.”

Archbishop Craig Bates, Patriarch of the International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church, is one of the religious leaders who will speak at the service, said: “Our Christian conscience demands that we provide a burial for these innocent victims. It is the decent and right thing to do.”

Laurel Hill Cemetery is at 3822 Ridge Ave. For more information, go to www.Gosnellbabies.com

National Memorial Service to be Held for Babies Killed by Abortionist Kermit Gosnell

PHILADELPHIA – The Pro-Life Leadership Coalition has announced that on Saturday, October 24, there will be a national memorial service at the gravesite of the babies killed by Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell and discovered in jars, boxes, and milk cartons when his clinic was raided in 2010. Convicted in 2013 for killing babies born alive, Gosnell is in prison for life.

The service will be held, with the support of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Office for Life and Family, at the Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia at 12 noon, and is cosponsored by the National Day of Remembrance. It will be interdenominational, and all are invited.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated, “The Medical Examiner’s office refused to allow the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the Charismatic Episcopal Church, or Priests for Life to bury these babies, despite repeated private and public requests from them and other groups. Now that the babies have been unceremoniously cremated and buried, it is long overdue that there be a public religious service to honor them. We will do that on October 24, and we invite all concerned people from around the nation to join us.”

Archbishop Craig Bates, Patriarch of the International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church, and one of the religious leaders who will be at the service, stated, “The Church has always had an obligation to pray for those who are dying and to commit the departed to the merciful hands of God. These babies were murdered for profit. Our Christian conscience demands that we provide a burial for these innocent victims. It is the decent and right thing to do. We know that these babies now cry out for an end to abortion and for respect for the sanctity of all life. ”

In a ceremony held at Priests for Life on May 9, 2013, names were bestowed on these children, and those names will be read again when we come together to remember and honor them on October 24.

Fr. Pavone: Video Reveals Live-Birth Abortion

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

347-286-7277

NEW YORK – Statement by Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and author of “Abolishing Abortion,” on the latest Planned Parenthood video:

“The latest undercover video reveals the reality of live-birth abortion. We hear one worker saying that one abortion patient was ‘in the OR for just three minutes… the fetus was already in the vaginal canal, and it just fell out…’

“Holly O’Donnell then relates a situation in which she helped procure the brain of an aborted baby. Holly said a co-worker called her over to look at the aborted body, which was intact. Holly says, ‘She just taps the heart and it starts beating…It had a face… nose…eyelids… she gave me the scissors and told me I had to cut down the middle of the face.’

“After the brain was taken, Holly had to clean up and put the rest of the baby’s body in the biohazard container. Holly relates, ‘He got stuck on the lid and it turned around and his buttocks were in the air and his two feet were like dangling out, and I remember having to pick each one of his feet up and put them in the container and close the lid.’

“Exactly what is being done to obtain these intact bodies needs to be investigated. Federal law prohibits abortion procedures that partially or fully deliver a living baby. Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell is serving life in prison because he killed babies who were still alive when they came out of the mother’s body. If Planned Parenthood is not fully investigated and prosecuted for these offenses, then we owe Gosnell an apology.

“I have worked with many former abortionists and clinic workers who tell similar accounts of what goes on in America’s abortion clinics. Read their stories at www.AbortionTestimonies.com.”

Fr. Pavone: We must act now to protect these babies

NEW YORK — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement regarding today’s vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36) in the House of Representatives.

“It is very fitting that on the two-year anniversary of the conviction of late-term abortionist and murderer Kermit Gosnell , our federal government is poised to take action to protect babies from a brutal and inhumane death at a point when they can feel pain. Many of Gosnell’s victims were well past 20 weeks. This bill would have protected them.

“We know from our work that some healthy mothers of healthy babies choose abortion after 20 weeks for reasons that have nothing to do with rape, incest or threats to physical health or life. Our ministry recently was asked to try to stop a healthy woman who was 30 weeks pregnant from aborting her healthy baby, but the abortion proceeded because there was no law to stop it.

“We must act now to stop this barbarous practice and protect these babies.”

Another Cry for Gun Control Overlooks the Greater Problem of Our Society’s Culture of Death Attitude

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

140602 blog image

With the news of yet another mass murder, this time from a celebrity shooter, comes more cries from those seeking gun control.

The shooter Elliot Rodgers is yet another example of the symptoms that plague our world. The son of an Assistant Director of the award winning sans gratuitously violent film HUNGER GAMES went on a violent stabbing/shooting spree in what was an apparent cry for help gone wrong.

Once again “The Elephant in the Room” is hiding in plain sight while the obvious is being overlooked. Yes we lament the death of Rodgers’ victims while at the same time we make no accepted outcry over the deaths of the thousands of innocent people being killed right here in America every day. Millions of babies have died by abortion. Hundreds of mothers are subsequently injured by abortion; some die. And a significant amount of lament is sorely lacking.

Yet in the case of Rodgers, a puzzled mainstream media is asking: “Could it be that the media hype is due to the Hollywood link? Rich white men? Mental illness?”

Seriously? Is anyone connecting the dots here? These above are possible symptoms; not causes of outbreaks senseless violence.

People are creating mayhem on victims they do not know. In the streets, in the schools, in the dorm rooms, in the form of human trafficking, in the hospitals and in the wombs of women.

Not just with guns and knives, but with scalpels and forceps and drugs and devices. Added to the growing list of victims of senseless violence are young babies in the womb, their tortured mothers, the sick and the elderly.

Yes, Rodger used guns, but he also stabbed people. So will we again push for gun control? What about knife control? And what if he had choked his victims. Will we advocate for strangulation control?

The problem is not the weapons Rodger used; the problem is the attitude towards the lack of demanding the right to dignity of life in our society.

Instead this seems to be the prevailing mindset of today: Is someone standing in your way? Kill that person. Someone has what you want? Do whatever you have to get it from that human being; even if it means murder. Another person is interfering with your life’s plans? Abort your baby. Someone sick or old? Euthanize.

We see from this mindset that for many, life has become disposable in our society. As Mother Teresa once said, “The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.”

Peace in America has been destroyed in the name of “choice;” a “choice” that has left millions of children dead and many women, mothers dead or wounded. As a result of the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision which brought legal abortion and the 1963 action removing prayer from our schools, we are reaping a harvest of lawless violence. Yet people are still asking “why?”

Last week, May 28 marked the International Day of Action for Women’s Health. While many pro-aborts planned to take to Twitter to promote abortions as healthcare, pro-life activists hijacked the hashtags #WomensHealth and #May28 to tweet the truth about abortion. As most would agree, abortion is NOT healthcare. Abortion is mind numbing death care. So are the harmful carcinogenic cancer/stroke/heart attack causing carcinogenic so called birth control products; not health care but fertility blocking death care.

Pro-life activists have been accused of raging a war on women. Nothing can be further from the truth. We want to protect them both, the mother and the baby.

Yet our protection is being censored while our children’s lives, minds and souls are under attack.

Before Rodger’s shooting rampage he posted a video on YouTube in which he sat in the driver’s seat of a car and revealed his plans to “slaughter the hottest sorority girls at UCSB.” In a blog post, Rodger wrote: “Being lonely in a beautiful place like Santa Barbara is truly a horrible experience. As I’ve said many times, a beautiful environment can be the darkest hell if you have to experience it all alone, especially while having to watch other men walking around with their girlfriends.”

He hated women. He had been hurt by their refusals and he wanted to pay them back. It was all about him; his feelings; his “horrible experience;” His personal “hell.” He raged a war on women in the Isla Vista community. And his rampage also resulted in other casualties.

Is what Rodgers did really so different from the war on women and their baby boys and girls that is being waged by abortionists and the abortion industry? Although they say they don’t hate women, they too hurt women and children for their own gain. For them it may not a vengeful shooting or stabbing act but the result is the same; a mass war on women and babies that leaves casualties none the less.

2012 was a record year for this type of violence; abortions and mass murders. Blaming guns, white men, white privilege, Hollywood, mental illness, poverty, and only God knows what else.

Yet the mass murders such as Rodgers’ spree, school bombings, etc. have been occurring at an accelerated rate that parallels the removal of prayer from schools and the a scenario of the abortion history.

Mass murders increased when prayer was taken out of school and abortion was legalized. A godless nation is becoming a soulless nation.

When pro-life activists who care about children and their parents are said to be waging a war on women; when dismembering an unborn child while it is still in his/her mother’s womb is called healthcare; when the elderly and sick are being euthanized in growing numbers; then I ask you, “what is left but for you to kill me and me to kill you?”

Let us pray for repentance and revival. All is not lost. May God raise up a fearless “Generation Z,” a new beginning with warriors of old uniting with millennial champions of justice so that the killings will subside and our land can be healed.

Priests for Life: Gosnell Anniversary Links Pain-Capable Bill and 2014 Elections

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: May 13, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK, NY — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement this morning:

“Today marks one year since the conviction of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who killed children before and after birth, and killed their mothers as well. I remember vividly the arguments in the courtroom, and how consistent these crimes are with what we see in abortion clinics throughout the nation, as detailed in the book Lime 5.

“Today we also join the voices of many in the U.S. Senate and across America in calling for a Senate vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This legislation, which would protect children in the womb from 20 weeks forward, is the next key step in reaching our ultimate goal, which is the protection of every unborn child — all of whom, without exception, we acknowledge as persons. Even among those who do not share that ultimate goal or belief, most agree that a policy allowing abortion after 20 weeks — when these children feel pain — is too extreme.

“Along with working for the passage of this legislation, Priests for Life is also implementing a project whereby each member of the U.S. Senate will be asked publicly whether he or she believes that the lives of children after 20 weeks of development should be protected in the womb. Priests for Life will see to it not only that this question is asked, but that the response — or lack thereof — is widely publicized in the state that senator represents, and across the country. Like it or not, the painful dismemberment of children in the womb is going to be a key issue in this year’s midterm elections.

“Finally, Priests for Life is planning a national memorial service for the babies and moms who were killed by Kermit Gosnell. These babies were given names in a special ceremony last year at the headquarters of Priests for Life (see www.KermitGosnell.com). The Philadelphia Medical Examiner refused to release the bodies of these children for burial. But we can have a funeral service nevertheless, and we will be calling upon the support and participation of Churches, the pro-life community, and all citizens of good will.”

Sept. 14 is Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children

Monday, September 9th, 2013

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: September 9, 2013

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

The brutality of abortion continues even after a child is ripped from the womb.

Bodies of aborted babies are disposed with medical waste and incinerated. Sometimes they are dumped into trash bins or fields. In one infamous case in California, the bodies of 16,443 aborted babies were found in a locked storage container outside a private home. A three-year court battle led by the American Civil Liberties Union ensued to prevent the babies from being granted the dignity of a proper burial. Eventually, they were laid to rest with the respect they deserved.

Similar scenarios, in smaller but still shocking numbers, have taken place across the nation in the 40 years since Roe v. Wade made the murder of the unborn a legal right. On Sept. 14, memorials will take place at gravesites of aborted children all over the country to grieve what we, as a nation, have lost, and to pray for the souls of these most innocent crime victims. Three organizations dedicated to ending abortion are organizing the memorials: Citizens for the Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and Pro-Life Action League.

“Since 1973 over 50 million unborn children have been killed and only a small fraction of these victims were humanely buried because pro-lifers took them from the trash,” said Monica Migliorino Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society. “These graves puncture the landscape and are a tragic and visible reminder that we must end the injustice of abortion. Memorial services, right at the graves of the victims, will be a powerful public witness to our nation that abortion truly kills innocent human beings, and serve as a call for justice, healing and forgiveness.”

The website AbortionMemorials.com has been established for the Sept. 14 services. There, visitors will find the heart-breaking details of many of the burials that have taken place over the decades and information on planned services. Some sites still need someone to step forward to organize a service, and those willing can find the information they need to get started.

“It’s sobering to realize that grave markers for the unborn victims of abortion list only a date of burial,” said Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League. “They have no birthdays because they were never allowed to be born. We can list no date of death, because those who killed them discarded their bodies like garbage. But they are not garbage to us. They are our brothers and sisters. That’s why we buried them, and that’s why we visit their graves to mourn for them and testify to their humanity.”

The inhumane treatment of the victims of abortion is not something that just happened in the past. Right now in Philadelphia, the Medical Examiner’s office is refusing to allow a proper burial for babies killed – many outside the womb – by the now-imprisoned abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Priests for Life has named these babies and has requested permission to bury them, but the Medical Examiner insists the babies will be cremated, privately and unmourned.

“In the light of the trial and conviction of Kermit Gosnell and the passage by the U.S. House of Representatives, and various states, of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the reality of late-term abortion has been brought into clearer focus for the American public,” said Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life. “Awareness of that reality leads to a logical question: What is done with the bodies?

“The National Day of Remembrance builds on that question and strengthens that awareness, creating a focal point for our grief, both national and personal, and for the education of future generations. These services also will provide opportunities for an urgent call to healing after abortion for the women who have suffered from this terrible choice and the extended families left wounded in its wake.”

Is Dr. James Pendergraft another Gosnell? Where is Gosnell? #WhereIsGosnell

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

130813 blog image

As I have asked before, “Where is Gosnell?” It seems that every week, if not every day, there’s a new report of another Gosnell-like abortionist making headlines. This time it’s a Florida doctor who has had his share of problems with authorities. And yet he continues to operate an abortion mill killing babies. How can this be?

As I’ve said many times before, these abortionists think they are above the law. And you would almost think so if you saw all the things they get away with.

Dr. James Pendergraft is one such doctor. He has had his license suspended five times, has had all his equipment seized and was closed down just last month. And yet a month later he is back up and operating his abortion clinic again.

A local television news station, WFTV, has run several news reports on the problems with Dr. Pentergraft so it’s not like people don’t know about him. You can watch them HERE and HERE.

What’s almost most shocking is that dispite all the trouble he seems to attract, despite his five license suspensions, one which is currently being enforced, despite having all his equipment seized, and despite a $36 million judgment against him for medical malpractice, he has managed to find six other doctors to work with him to do the abortions since he has no license. That’s right, SIX. And he has opened his clinic with borrowed equipment.

I wonder if the old idiom “birds of a feather do flock together” applies in this case?

I hope people are paying attention across America as more reports surface of Gosnell-like abortionists doing as they wish and putting patients at risk because they think they are untouchable.
