Rally for Religious Freedom TOMORROW in 160 U.S. Cities

—Posted by John (June 7, 2012 at 12:37 pm)

Stand Up Rally locationsThe list of cities taking part in tomorrow’s Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally now stands at 160—far surpassing the 145 cities that participated in the first Stand Up Rally on March 23.

The number of cities on board for the June 8 Nationwide Rally shows that the massive turnout seen at that first Rally on March 23 was hardly a one-time phenomenon.

Opposition among the American people to the HHS Mandate’s assault on religious freedom is intense—and getting stronger!

From Augusta, Maine to Miami, Florida to Fairbanks, Alaska to Honolulu, Hawaii the American people are sending a message that we will not stand idly by while the federal government forces all employer health plans to provide free contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs, regardless of any moral or religious objections.

When Friday night comes around, you don’t want to find yourself saying, “I wish I had gone to the Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally.”

Don’t be that guy. Be there!

Youth Pro-Life Activism Growing Across Europe

—Posted by John (May 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm)

young pro-lifers in europeIt’s not just in the U.S. that teens and college students have begun to play an increasingly bigger role in the pro-life movement — the same thing is happening across Europe.

There’s an article today in LifeSiteNews about this phenomenon titled “David Is Advancing: Young Pro-Lifers on the March in Europe.”

The article begins:

Anyone who has ever participated in the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., has marvelled not only at the always-surprisingly massive and joyful crowds, but also at the abundance of pro-life resources available: books, pamphlets, buttons, stickers, CDs, DVDs, and so on. And in light of the comparably modest amount of pro-life material available in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy), one may even be a little envious of the influential presence of the American pro-life movement in the worldwide battle to defend life, especially their youth activism.

Over 100 Cities to Rally for Religious Freedom on June 8

—Posted by John (May 4, 2012 at 2:12 pm)

Stand Up Rally locationsThe next Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally is still more than a month away, and this week our list of cities taking part reached 101!

The number of cities already on board for June 8 shows that the massive turnout seen at the first Nationwide Rally on March 23 wasn’t just a one-time thing.

Opposition among the American people to the HHS Mandate’s assault on religious freedom is intense—and getting stronger!

From Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon and all the way out to Honolulu, Hawaii, Americans of all ages are sending a message that we will not stand idly by while the federal government forces all employer health plans to provide free contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs, regardless of any moral or religious objections.

Msgr. Philip Reilly to Visit Chicago This Weekend

—Posted by John (March 8, 2012 at 9:49 pm)

Msgr. Philip ReillyPro-life veteran and world renowned sidewalk counselor Monsignor Philip Reilly will visit the Chicago area on Saturday, March 10 for a pro-life prayer vigil sponsored by the Chicago Helpers of God’s Precious Infants.

March 10 is an especially fitting day for a pro-life prayer vigil, as it is National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. What better day to pray for unborn children and that those responsible for taking their lives will have a genuine conversion of heart and become ex-abortion providers?

In addition, on Friday, March 9, Msgr. Reilly will give a presentation entitled “Be Not Afraid” at St. Isaac Jogues Parish in Hinsdale, IL.

Msgr. Reilly has been active in the pro-life movement since 1967 — six years before Roe v. Wade — and in 1989, along with just four volunteers, he founded the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants outside the infamous Choices abortion center in Brooklyn, New York. Helpers Chapters now span across the United States and 18 countries worldwide. (more…)

2012 March for Life the Most Energetic Yet

—Posted by John (January 24, 2012 at 4:47 pm)

March for Life 2012I’ve attended the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. for the past 8 years, but this year’s was by far the most upbeat, energetic and encouraging march I’ve been to, and Generations for Life was thrilled to be a part of it.

The crowd was enormous and excited about the coming year, as well they should be. 2011 was an amazing year for the pro-life movement, and the momentum only keeps going our way.

As the march wound through the streets of the nation’s capital, you could see groups from all religious traditions, all ages and races, school groups, church groups, colleges with huge banners—it was quite a show.

Crusaders for Life Steal the Show

But there was one thing that I don’t think anyone missed—the Crusaders for Life pro-life youth group from my parish, St. John Cantius in Chicago. The giant group came equipped with chants, huge yellow “LIFE” balloons, and portable platforms where they could carry some of their cohorts above the crowd to lead chants. (more…)

Humility: An Essential Part of Being Pro-Life

—Posted by John (October 20, 2011 at 11:17 am)

During the Pro-Life Action League’s “Face the Truth Tour” a few weeks ago in Cincinnati, one of the local pro-life activists who came out to join us for the day reminded me of something that can’t be repeated often enough.

He and I were talking about various ways to fight abortion, and he remarked that one of the most important things any of us can do — no matter how old we are — is to strive for personal holiness in our everyday lives.  I couldn’t agree with him more.

My co-worker Eric Scheidler has talked in two recent posts on the Pro-Life Action League’s blog about the need for pro-lifers to be diplomats for our cause, and to always keep in mind when we’re talking with people who are pro-choice that our purpose isn’t to “score points” but rather to persuade them to agree with us about the value of life in the womb.

Occasionally, a single conversation with someone who is pro-choice may result in an on-the-spot conversion to pro-life. But I would guess that instances like these are more the exception than the rule. (more…)

40 Days for Life Starts Next Week

—Posted by John (September 22, 2011 at 9:31 am)

40 Days for Life 2011 mapThere’s a great pro-life event beginning next week in over 300 cities across the country: the 40 Days for Life prayer campaign.

From September 28th through November 6th, 40 Days for Life prayer vigils will be held outside abortion clinics in 301 locations in the U.S., Canada, Australia, England, Germany, Spain, and Argentina.

This will be the ninth ever 40 Days for Life campaign, and the results of the first eight have been amazing:

  • MORE THAN 400,000 PEOPLE of all ages have joined together to
    pray and fast for an end to abortion
  • At least 4,313 BABIES HAVE BEEN SAVED from abortion—and those
    are just the ones we know about
  • 53 abortion workers have QUIT THEIR JOBS and walked away from
    the abortion industry
  • 16 abortion facilities COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN following local 40
    Days for Life vigils

And this fall’s 40 Days will be the biggest one yet — more babies will be saved, more parents will be spared a lifetime of regrets, and more abortion workers will have their hearts touched and leave their jobs.

I hope you won’t want to miss the chance to take part in this historic pro-life prayer campaign. You can find the 40 Days site nearest you here.

Face the Truth 2011

With our summer “Face the Truth” Tour getting ready to hit the streets July 8-16, the Pro-Life Action League — GFL’s parent organization — is proud to present an exciting new video explaining the Face the Truth approach to pro-life activism and why we believe it’s one of the most important tools in fighting abortion:

Sidewalk Counseling: Does It All Depend on Us?

—Posted by Christina (June 26, 2011 at 4:11 pm)

Hey everybody! Gosh, I am so sorry for not blogging here for so long! I got so sidetracked, but the good news is that I was sidetracked with pro-life work! It’s been very wonderful, but I really do think I should share here more through blogging. I’ll do better now.

Something I’d love to discuss today is sidewalk counseling. Just that phrase, “sidewalk counseling”, tends to give us pro-life people either thrills and goose pimples, or it freaks us out! It’s really quite a glorious thing, and as a young pro-life kid, I used to watch my mother do it in real time. And boy did I dream of the day that I could do it too, just like Mom!

I’m 22 now, and finally this year, I really did get to do THE sidewalk counseling! It was every bit as thrilling as I dreamed; truly God is good to allow us to work with people in that way. I was able to bring a young pregnant mother away from an abortion facility, take her and the baby’s father out to lunch, and convince them to let us help them keep their child! Wow! (more…)

Giving the Lie to Pro-Choice Euphemisms

—Posted by John (April 14, 2011 at 9:41 am)

euphemismSome time in the next few weeks, my wife is planning to have her pregnancy terminated.

Now, if you’re shocked to hear me say this, let me clarify:

My wife, Jocelyn, and I are expecting our 6th child. As of tomorrow, she will be 39 weeks pregnant.

And, as babies growing and developing in the womb have a tendency of doing, our baby will, some time soon, be born. After this happens, needless to say, my wife will no longer be pregnant.

Thus, her pregnancy will have been terminated.

Rhetorical Fraud

This occurred to me as I read a recent post by Life Dynamics’ Mark Crutcher, who wrote about the “rhetorical fraud” used by pro-choicers in which the term “pregnancy termination” is used as a euphemism for “abortion”:

The pro-life movement is not now, has never been, and will never be, opposed to pregnancy terminations. We are fully aware that all pregnancies terminate.

Remember this the next time (more…)

Stand Vigil

—Posted by Victoria (April 11, 2011 at 7:39 pm)

I have often driven by the abortion clinic nearby my home and seen courageous people out there praying. Though I had joined them occasionally in years past, it is only recently I have begun going regularly.

It is a difficult thing, standing there, knowing what is going on inside. A baby is being killed and their mother’s, father’s, grandparents’, and siblings’ lives are being altered forever. Yet it is a spiritual battle that needs to be fought, and for more than one reason. (more…)

What Better Way to Spend Your Spring Break than by Saving Babies?

—Posted by John (March 7, 2011 at 12:12 pm)

springbreakI just got an e-mail from my friend Bryan Kemper about a great spring break opportunity:

If your Spring Break is between March 9th and April 17th we want you to spend it praying for the end of abortion. Stand True and Austin Coalition for Life are teaming up to provide a great pro-life mission opportunity for you during spring break.

March 9th marks the start of the spring 40 Days for Life campaign where pro-lifers from around the world gather to pray and minister outside of abortion clinics. Hearst and minds are change and hundreds of babies are saved during each 40 Days for Life event.

Former Planned Parenthood Director, Abby Johnson quit and joined the pro-life movement because of the efforts a 40 Days for Life campaign in Texas. One of the key figures in her journey into the pro-life movement is Elizabeth McClung who will be hosting this Spring Break Mission Trip in Austin, TX. (more…)

Pro-Life Flash Mob Upstages Chicago “Walk for Choice”

—Posted by John (February 28, 2011 at 7:58 am)

In response to the “Walk for Choice” in Chicago sponsored Saturday by the Illinois Choice Action Team, over 200 members and friends of the Crusaders for Life teen pro-life club — many of whom belong to St. John Cantius Parish in Chicago — organized a Pro-Life Flash Mob in Daley Plaza to counter the event. They then followed the same route as the pro-choicers, but on the opposite side of the street:

God bless ‘em!

While they had a little help from the club’s adult moderators, much of the planning and execution of this flash mob was carried out by the club members themselves, on their own initiative.

It’s for reasons like this that I’ve often said, and will continue to say, that young people are not the future of the pro-life movement, they are the here and now of the pro-life movement.
