Kansas High School Students Set the Standard for Pro-Life Activism

— Posted by John (December 23, 2013 at 3:54 pm)

catholic school life rally, wichita, 12-6-13I was really excited to hear about the first annual Catholic School Life Rally held earlier this month outside the South Wind Women’s Center abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas.

The idea for the rally was conceived by the 10-member senior class at St. John’s Catholic High School in Beloit, Kansas. One of the highlights of the rally was an impressive and heartfelt speech given by one member of the class, 17-year old Katie Greenwood.

Here are some of the highlights of Katie’s speech:

I am the oldest of 13 kids. I love each of my brothers and sisters so much, I couldn’t live without them. But, I do have three siblings that I have to live without. I’ve actually never met them. My mom has had three miscarriages; the most recent miscarriage was actually confirmed two nights ago. Do you have any idea the heart-wrenching experience I went through the night my parents told our family what happened? I want you to picture 10 kids, ranging in ages from 17 to 2 years old, so excited for a new baby brother or sister. We were so happy. I was going to get to be the godmother to this child, we were already having the sibling wars on whether the baby should be a boy or girl, we already had the names picked out. We could not wait for this baby. Picture that joy. Now can you imagine the sorrow in my family when we were told that our baby brother or sister died before we ever got to meet him or her? That we will never, ever get to see this child grow up? Never get to show him our world? We would have cherished this child, just as we would cherish any other child in the womb of any other person. Children are a blessing. They are precious and sacred. They are loved by God, and we acknowledge the love and value that God places on every, single one of them. [Continue reading this entry »]

Send a Christmas Card to Mary Wagner, a Pro-Life Prisoner of Conscience

— Posted by John (December 6, 2013 at 11:00 am)

Mary WagnerOn August 15, 2012, Mary Wagner was arrested after she entered the waiting room of a Toronto abortion clinic and offered help to any woman who would consider changing her mind.

She has been in jail ever since on charges of “mischief: interference with lawful enjoyment/operation of a business,” and and breach of a probation order that prohibits her from being within 200 meters of any place where abortions are performed in Ontario.

This was the sixth time Mary had been arrested since she began her campaign of civil disobedience in March 2010. Since then, she has spent nearly three years in prison.

To support Mary, her friends and supporters at Campaign Life Coalition Youth have organized a campaign to send her Christmas cards and letters: [Continue reading this entry »]

NCYC 2013 = Win!

— Posted by John (November 25, 2013 at 3:16 pm)

Teens from the Diocese of Owensboro at NCYC 2013

The National Catholic Youth Conference was huge. Total attendance was over 23,000!

This was our third NCYC, and we’re so glad we came!  Our display table was in a great location in the thematic park, so we had a steady stream of visitors over the course of all three days, and we were thrilled at the response we got from everyone who stopped by.

Our “YOUR MOM Chose Life” pins were a huge hit!  We gave away over 1,000 of them, along with over 500 “I’m Pro-Life. Ask Me Why!” buttons.

We also gave out hundreds of pro-life drop cards and postcards provided by Stand True, and pro-life magazines provided by Human Life Alliance.  And even more importantly, we had countless inspiring conversations with numerous teens from all across the country, including many who are interested in starting their own pro-life clubs.

We’re already looking forward to the next NCYC in 2015!

Join Us at NCYC 2013!

— Posted by John (November 4, 2013 at 9:00 am)

NCYC 2013 logoAt our first National Catholic Youth Conference, held in Kansas City in 2009, we handed out over 1,000 pro-life buttons, stickers and pieces of pro-life literature.

Then, at NCYC 2011, in Indianapolis, we knew we needed to bring even more stuff to give away.  And we did!

Two years ago we handed out well over 1,500 buttons, including 1,000 “Your Mom Chose Life” buttons, along with hundreds of other items.

Your Mom Chose Life pinNow we’re getting ready to head back to Indianapolis in a few weeks for NCYC 2013, from November 21-23.

Because they were such a big hit last time, we’ll have even more “Your Mom Chose Life” buttons to give away, along with lots of other items.

We’ll be in booth 564 in the thematic park.  Stop by and see us!

Doctor’s “Abortion-First” Mentality Featured on PostSecret

— Posted by John (September 4, 2013 at 9:11 am)

Last week on the Pro-Life Action League blog, my co-worker Ann Scheidler wrote about a bill in the California state legislature that would allow nurse midwives, nurse practitioners, and physicians’ assistants to perform abortions.

In it she wrote:

There seems to be a general consensus among the medical community in favor of easy “access” to abortion, but when it comes to actually performing the abortions, most doctors want respectability among their peers and their friends, and so they don’t want to stoop to that level.

With that in mind, check out this postcard that recently appeared on the website PostSecret: [Continue reading this entry »]

Sexting: Just Say No

— Posted by John (August 29, 2013 at 8:02 am)

Sexting: strike a post, press send, regret it foreverJonathan van Maren of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform has an excellent article this week about sexting.

Here’s an excerpt:

Girls: If a guy asks you for explicit pictures, he’s implicitly told you what he wants from you. The answer is it’s not you. He wants your body, and in this scenario he doesn’t even want you physically present. By sending him these pictures you’re voluntarily reducing yourself to a one-dimensional sex object, without a personality, without aspirations or intellect or even a voice. You are a person with a body, not a body with a person. If the boy you’re talking to doesn’t recognize that, then drop him hard, and wait for someone who does. There will be guys who want to spend time with you, not just your body.

Guys: If you’re asking for these pictures, think for a minute about what you’re saying about girls and women in general. You’re revealing something about yourself that’s pretty distasteful: Namely, that the relationship you want is one defined by your particular sexual wants rather than the presence of another person who demands—or should demand—mutual respect and understanding. If you’re asking for these pictures, you’re not acting the way a man should, by respecting (and in some cases protecting) the women in your life. You are acting like a predator, and a cannibalistic one to boot. And if the pictures are sent to you unsolicited, you should delete them and tell her she’s worth more than that.

“Personally Opposed”

— Posted by Grant (August 7, 2013 at 9:05 am)

Two individuals stroll down a dusky street: one tall, one small.

The woman, slim and wearing a fashionable red dress, is the mother, Kim. The short, wide-eyed girl holding her hand is her daughter, Liza.

The two live in the heart of New York, on the edge of a bad neighborhood, an area which they normally ignore and avoid. Tonight, however, Kim’s husband has gotten two front-row tickets to Evita, and since the family’s usual sitter is on vacation, Kim is dragging her ten-year-old through the grimy streets toward an acquaintance’s home, which is actually outside of the rundown district; but, for several reasons—including their car being in for repairs, this route being a short-cut, and Kim’s unwillingness to pay for a cab—here they are.

While rushing through, Kim is dreaming of the delightful dancing and marvelous musical numbers that await at the Marquis Theatre, much too busy to pay any attention to the tragic poverty around her.

This explains why, when Liza tugs on her mother’s sleeve to say, “Mommy, a bad man is hurting that woman,” Kim reacts as she does: turning away from the unshaven fellow—who happens to be waving a blade at a teenaged girl—and continuing to walk away as if nothing were the matter, dragging Liza with. “We can’t leave her,” insists Liza, “We have to help. That’s bad.” [Continue reading this entry »]

Hope Versus Hate: The Surprising Truth of a Face the Truth Tour

— Posted by Grant (August 1, 2013 at 12:30 pm)

Grant Wilson at the 2013 Face the Truth Tour

I once found a five-dollar bill. That was a good surprise. A few days later, I found that my car wouldn’t start. That was a bad surprise.

My first “Face the Truth Tour” landed somewhere in the middle. Rather than being like free money or a failing motor system—completely good or bad—spending eight days traveling all around Chicago and showing graphic abortion pictures to my fellow citizens stands somewhere in the middle as a surprisingly difficult, surprisingly revealing, and surprisingly rewarding experience.

The difficulty, I suppose, should have been expected, a natural complement to the time of year and the focus of our protest. After all, the July heat and the hatred surrounding the abortion debate are not exactly new patterns in our climate or culture. [Continue reading this entry »]

Salty Herbicide, Selfish Homicide

— Posted by Grant (July 24, 2013 at 9:22 am)

Joey and Jenny, enterprising toddlers that they are, decide to spend one June afternoon planting Joey’s backyard. With pudgy fingers, they press apple, pumpkin, and lettuce seeds into the ground. Then, with the certain solemnity that children have, they vow to spend an hour each day, for the rest of the summer, tending their patch of Eden.

Surprisingly, neither forgets the promise, and for the next week, Joey and Jenny take time out of their schedules to water and weed. Sprouting shoots reward their efforts, future fruit-bearers stretching into the sunlight.

Eventually, though, Joey decides that he would much rather play baseball than spend sixty minutes of every day pulling weeds, coming to the conclusion that hitting home runs is more exciting than helping plants grow.

So, one morning, Joey takes the salt shaker from his kitchen cabinet and starts blanketing the garden. Halfway through, Jenny looks out her window, sees this vegetation devastation, and races over, begging for mercy. Joey, gentleman that he is, informs her that it is “his yard, his choice.”

“But I helped plant it, too!” says Jenny. [Continue reading this entry »]

Face the Truth 2013 Starts This Friday

— Posted by John (July 9, 2013 at 11:36 am)

This Friday, July 12, our parent organization—the Pro-Life Action League—kicks off our 14th annual “Face the Truth” Tour across northeastern Illinois.

Since 2000, the League has conducted a week-long tour all across the Chicagoland area. At each stop, League staff and volunteers line a busy intersection with graphic pictures of abortion to show the public what it really is. Get the full Tour itinerary here.

That’s What an Aborted Baby Looks Like?”

Although it’s controversial, this pro-life tactic has proven itself enormously important in the fight against abortion.

Many people truly believe that what’s being aborted is merely a clump of cells or a blob of tissue. If you’ve never been part of a Face the Truth demonstration, you’d be amazed how often we hear passersby saying things like, “That’s what an abortion an aborted baby looks like?”

If you’ve heard people voice objections to Face the Truth, or if you have objections or questions yourself, please check out our Answering Common Objections page, where we answer some of those questions in depth. [Continue reading this entry »]

New Mexico Abortionist: Killing a Baby at 27 Weeks Is “Like a Flu Shot”

— Posted by John (June 13, 2013 at 4:25 pm)

On the same day when Nancy Pelosi holds a press conference and dances around a question about the difference between late-term abortions and the babies born alive and then killed by Kermit Gosnell, Live Action has released the latest installment in their Inhuman: Undercover in America’s Late-Term Abortion Industry video series.

Among the highlights:

  • Abortionist Laura Mercer says a baby/fetus at 23 weeks “doesn’t even look like a baby yet”
  • Abortionist Leroy Carhart says “life begins when the mother thinks it begins, not when anybody else thinks it begins”
  • Abortionist Carmen Landau says that aborting a baby at 27 weeks with a lethal injection of digoxin is “like a flu shot”

“Do We Know When Life Begins?”

— Posted by John (May 24, 2013 at 10:43 am)

human embryo at 7 weeksStephanie Gray wrote a brilliant article recently at LifeSiteNews in which she started off with a question most of us can probably relate to:

Have you ever heard someone who supports abortion claim, “No one knows when life begins”? The funny thing is, these very individuals actually do claim to know when it begins. If they ban abortion at 3 months, then they are implicitly saying life begins at 3 months. If they ban abortion at 6 months, then they are implicitly saying life begins at 6 months. The question is this: Is where they draw the line based on fact or convenience?

Moreover, abortion advocates are making an even greater concession than they realize. Consider the labels “3 months” or “6 months”: these reveal the passage of time, and show that time is being “clocked” from a beginning point 3 or 6 months prior. So wherever abortion advocates draw a line, they are unwittingly making this major admission: that life began where they started clocking the passage of time that brought them to 3 or 6 months. So what happened 3 or 6 months prior? Fertilization. And that’s when life begins.

How Have We Come to This?

— Posted by Elizabeth (April 30, 2013 at 3:51 pm)

The closing arguments are being made in the grisly murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. The case leads us to wonder, how has “reproductive care” come to this – the murder of newborn infants by snipping their spinal cords?

Perhaps the root cause can be found in America’s glorification of sex. Not sex within marriage, but promiscuity, hook-ups, pornography, and lust. The culture of licentiousness has people convinced that sex is all about pleasure and should be “consequence-free”. Society is forgetting about the selfless love of spouses. Instead, lust leads to the objectification of one’s sexual “partner”.

Once the door has opened to allow the objectification of human persons and stripping of their dignity, why stop there?
