Will You Help Memorialize
the 55 Million Unborn Babies?
Next Tuesday, January, 22, 2013, the 40th anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court ruling which legalized abortion on demand, pro-life advocates across America are being urged to memorialize the 55 million pre-born babies who have been aborted since that ruling 40 years ago on that date.
When people want to express their sorrow for tragic deaths, they often bring symbols of their grief to the sites of the deaths, including candles, flowers and messages. When children are killed, those symbols often include stuffed animals and balloons, such as for the recent school massacre in Newtown. We need your help to commemorate the 55 million pre-born babies who were aborted before they could even take a breath.
RNC for Life is urging those who value the sanctity of life to remember those innocent babes by placing flowers, balloons and stuffed animals at the approximately 600 abortion facilities across America next Tuesday. We also encourage you to pray silently in front of the abortion facility after placing your memorial.
You don’t have to spend much time at the abortuary and you don’t have to spend much money on the symbols you place there. But these memorials – hopefully 600+ of them – will send a message to all who see them: Some of the 55 million innocents were killed HERE and we grieve for them.
We hope that these spontaneous memorials will be placed at every abortuary, accompanied by sweet reminders of unborn children and even messages to those innocent babies. We are confident that in seeing these hundreds of memorials with thousands of participants, America will come to realize the magnitude of the horror that abortion is and has been for four decades. A flyer suitable to distribute is available here which will give you specific suggestions.
Please forward this to everyone you know who believes in the sanctity of Life. We must not let this infamous anniversary go by without memorializing these babes who have been murdered in the womb at the rate of about 3,300 EVERY DAY of every year of the last 40 years!
Record Year for PP Abortion Business
Last year was a record-breaking and profitable year for the world’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Its new report reveals that the abortion giant committed 333,964 abortions on unborn children during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. In fact, PP has captured more than one quarter of the “market share” of the gruesome abortion industry in America, averaging an unborn child murdered in its mother’s womb about every 94 seconds. Those abortions were estimated to have generated $150 million dollars for the “nonprofit” organization.
Yet, 45% of its revenue doesn’t come from those abortions, but rather from us – the taxpayers! Yes, last year, Planned Parenthood received some $542 million of tax monies, resulting in an excess of more than $1 million according to their report. In fact, the “non profit” organization has assets of more than $1billion and since 2001 has had a total excess of more than $771 million. What a cash cow we taxpayers continue to subsidize!
Bill to Cut Funding to Planned Parenthood Introduced
Once again, the pro-life Republican-led House of Representatives has legislation pending which will cut funding to Planned Parenthood. TN Republican Representative Diane Black (who is a nurse) was joined by Republican Study Committee Chairman Steve Scalise (R-LA), Pro-Life Caucus Co-Chairman Chris Smith (R-NJ), Value Action Team Co-Chairmen Joe Pitts and John Fleming and 19 additional House members in reintroducing the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act. This bill ensures that Title X family planning grants are used for their intended purpose and are prohibited from being used by organizations that provide abortions. This is similar in intent to bills passed recently by several state legislatures.
“By clarifying the original intent and spirit of the law, Title X federally funded grants will no longer be awarded to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States, or any other organization that abuses their privileges as health care providers and fails to protect life by providing abortions. It is long past time for Congress to respect the will of the American people and stop taxpayer-funded abortions – a heinous abuse of the law and destruction of innocent life,” said Congresswoman Black.
Original cosponsors include Reps. Steve Scalise (R-LA), Chris Smith (R-NJ), John Fleming (R-LA), Joe Pitts (R-PA), Tom Price (R-GA), Phil Roe (R-TN), Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN), Adrian Smith (R-NE), Peter Roskam (R-IL), Martha Roby (R-AL), Steve King (R-IA), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Bill Flores (R-TX), Lou Barletta (R-PA), Blake Farenthold (R-TX), Justin Amash (R-MI), Rick Crawford (R-AR), Tom Graves (R-GA), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Mike Kelly (R-PA), Tom Reed (R-NY) and Renee Ellmers (R-NC).
As the bill progresses, we will keep you posted. It likely will pass the House and meet the usual fate of pro-life legislation in the Democrat-controlled Senate: Dead On Arrival.
Pro-Choice = Pro-Abortion Finally Confirmed by PP!
Many pro-life advocates have long felt that “pro-choice” is not as accurate a label as “pro-abortion” for those who labor for the continued slaughter of the pre-born. And now, at long last, even Planned Parenthood has admitted that the “pro-choice” label isn’t working for them any longer. Describing the old term as too “frivolous,” the world’s largest abortion provider has not yet decided exactly what term to use, but is seeking something “more nuanced” to reflect their statement of principles. Hmmm – just how subtle (or nuanced) can killing pre-born babies actually be? Read more here.
Seeks to Recruit Younger Activists
Still brandishing the term “pro-choice” in its name, NARAL Pro-Choice America has announced longtime Democratic operative Ilyse Hogue to serve as its new president. Finding an intensity gap among young women who were not born when abortion was illegal, the group seeks to appeal to a younger generation of pro-abortion rights supporters. This lack of intensity for killing pre-born children reflects the growing number of young adults who now are pro-life. Indeed, according to recent polling, slightly more than half the country considers itself to be pro-life and the fastest growing segment of those pro-lifers is young adults. According to a NARAL report released earlier this month, 42 anti-choice measures were passed in 25 states last year and clearly that trend alarms the pro-abortionists. Read more at Yahoo News.
