TRUMP PICKS AMY CONEY BARRETT FOR SCOTUS SEAT, DELIVERING ON “PRO-LIFE” PROMISE

 

President Donald Trump named Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court nominee on Saturday, setting off a heated confirmation battle to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vacant seat just 38 days before the election. “Today, it is my honor to nominate one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court,” Trump said in the Rose Garden. “She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials, and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution.” “I love the United States and I love the United States Constitution,” Coney Barrett said. “I am truly humbled by the prospect of serving on the Supreme Court”


A RISING THREAT TO THE LIVES OF UNBORN BABIES IS THE CHEMICAL ABORTION PILL

The number of chemical abortions in the US has gone up dramatically, while the overall number of abortions has decreased. COVID-19 is expected to only make the problem worse, with more women (and teen girls) seeking chemical abortions at home—even illegally, by mail and without a doctor’s prescription. This is especially scary because chemical abortion can be more painful, traumatic, and risky for women than surgical abortion. But there is hope: a new bill has been introduced that could help protect mothers and babies from chemical abortion. 

SAVE Moms and Babies Act (H.R. 4399 / S. 3072

TAKE ACTION NOW TO help protect moms and babies from chemical abortion.

The Support and Value Expectant (SAVE) Moms & Babies Act (H.R. 4399 / S. 3072) could help improve regulation of chemical abortion pills. The SAVE Moms & Babies Act would codify current FDA (Food and Drug Administration) safety regulations requiring physicians to dispense the pills, prevent providers from dispensing these drugs remotely, by mail, or via tele-medicine, and prevent the (FDA) from approving new chemical abortion drugs or from making labeling changes to existing abortion drugs. 
 
Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith introduced S. 3072.On Tuesday, September 22, she plans to go to the Senate floor to ask the Senate to adopt the bill by “unanimous consent”. While this request is unlikely to succeed (it only takes one member to object), this request will provide an opportunity to talk about the dangers of chemical abortion and to raise awareness about the need for this bill. You can watch Senator Hyde-Smith’s request and other pro-life senators’ comments live on Tuesday, tentatively scheduled for 4:15ET.    
Please TAKE ACTION NOW to urge your Senators and Representative to co-sponsor and work to enact S. 3072 or H.R. 4399 or to thank them if they have already done so.

Read The Newsletter
In 2009, 12-year-old Lia Mills wowed the pro-life community with a simple YouTube video of her school speech about abortion.
Lia spoke so articulately and passionate about protecting life that her video immediately spread across the globe. “What if I told you that, right now, someone was choosing if you were going to live or die?” she says in the video. “Thousands of children are right now in that very situation. That someone is their mother. And that choice is abortion.”

Catholic Archbishop: Vote Pro-Life, Nothing More Important Than the “Basic Right — to Live”

Read Article »»

Each month we recognize individuals and organizations that made significant contributions to the Pro-Life movement. Suggested reading also follows.

 

 

Featured Pro Life Advocate:

 

Rev. Franklin Graham

Rev. Franklin Graham, president, and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association — The son of the great global evangelist Billy Graham has emerged as one of the nation’s strongest voices in defense of traditional values, including the right to life. The chief of the international Samaritan’s Purse relief organization recently blasted the U.S. Senate for hypocrisy after it blocked Planned Parenthood defunding, and then hours later greeted Pope Francis with a standing ovation.

 

 

Featured Pro Life Advocate:

 

Candace Owens

Conservative author, commentator, and activist Candace Owens has publicly declared she is pro-life, after previously supporting abortion, saying that life is a “miracle,” and that it is “sacred.” In recent years, she has been swayed by pro-life arguments. However, it was seeing her own preborn child on an ultrasound screen that led her to fully embrace the pro-life position.

Featured Pro Life Organization

Sisters of Life is a female Roman Catholic religious institute following  the Augustinian rule. It is both a contemplative and active religious community, dedicated to the promotion of pro-life causes. The abbreviation S.V. stands for Sorores Vitae, Latin for Sisters of Life.

Featured Pro Life Book

Persuasive Pro Life: How to Talk about Our Culture's Toughest Issue - Paperback – October 1, 2014

by Trent Horn  (Author), Foreword by Fr Frank Pavone (Editor)

Are you scared to talk about abortion? Don t worry almost everyone is. Either we think the subject is too impolite, or we don t want to be branded an intolerant fanatic, or we re afraid we won t represent the pro-life side well enough. Whatever the reason for this fear, it causes many of us pass up opportunities to speak out on behalf of the unborn. You can overcome this fear, says Trent Horn in his new book Persuasive Pro-Life. With a little knowledge and a few proven techniques, you can become a bold and effective apologist for life. Drawing on over a decade as a pro-life organizer, Horn helps you cut through the diversions and obfuscations of the pro-choice side in order toaccurately frame the legal, historical, and medical issue surrounding abortion.

PRO LIFE REFLECTION

Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

—Matthew 6:25-26
