NEW YORK –Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today regarding the newest video made public by the Center for Medical Progress.

“The latest video, released today, increases the evidence that Planned Parenthood is violating federal law that prohibits selling body parts or altering the abortion procedure to obtain such parts. Moreover, the video talks about obtaining full fetal cadavers. It raises the disturbing question as to whether some of these babies are born alive and then killed. Kermit Gosnell is serving life sentences for doing that. It may be time for some Planned Parenthood doctors to join him in prison.

“The discussion of full cadavers is no surprise to me; in fact, I have obtained full cadavers of aborted babies, in order to bury them, from pathologists who in turn got them from abortion clinics.”

NEW YORK — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, the Catholic Church’s largest pro-life organization, issued the following statement today on the Senate’s vote not to consider legislation to defund Planned Parenthood.

“It’s disappointing but not unexpected that the Senate failed to advance the bill to defund Planned Parenthood. But there will be other opportunities coming up soon to achieve what S. 1881 will not be able to accomplish. There is more than one way to defund Planned Parenthood.

“I am confident that investigations of this corrupt organization on the state and federal level will make it clear that beyond being defunded, Planned Parenthood needs to be shut down and those responsible for breaking federal laws regarding the sale of body parts prosecuted.”

Priests for Life Youth Director Appeals To Illinois Senator To Vote To Defund Planned Parenthood

NEW YORK — Bryan Kemper, Priests for Life Youth Outreach Director of founder of Stand True Pro-Life Outreach, is calling on Sen. Mark Kirk (R – Illinois) to continue his fight against human trafficking by voting to defund Planned Parenthood.

Sen. Kirk is one of the Republican senators who has not committed to voting in favor of S. 1881 on Monday. The bill would strip the nation’s largest abortion provider of all federal funding.

“When I met Sen. Kirk on a plane in May 2014, I was wearing a pro-life t-shirt and the senator told me he was pro-choice but passionate about ending human trafficking,” Kemper said. “With the bill to defund Planned Parenthood, the senator has a chance to take a stand for the dignity of all human life, including the tiniest humans whose body parts are being trafficked all over the country, for profit.

“I am appealing to Sen. Kirk to use his crucial vote on Monday to defund Planned Parenthood.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and author of the new book Abolishing Abortion, added:

“We have called on all of our supporters, and everyone who supports the sanctity of human life, to be in touch with their senators before Monday to voice support for this bill. Sen. Kirk’s vote is important and I hope he will make the connection that Bryan Kemper has articulated: Human trafficking includes the illegal sale of human body parts.”

Alveda King: God harvests souls. The devil harvests baby body parts.

Atlanta, GA – Opinion – In part four of the PPH expose by the Center for Medical Progress view undercover conversation with Dr. Savita Ginde, VP/Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) where she talks about coordinating with other Planned Parenthoods making sure that they’re “all saying the same thing, and that the CEOs are all saying the same thing;” and talking about their attorney creating layers so that it doesn’t look like they’re selling baby body parts.

Is PPH switching and padding? Yes – regardless of Cecile Richards’ flimsy defense that the videos are “highly doctored” and “highly edited.” The videos are also posted in their entirety, so her claims that, “it’s not a fee… It’s just the cost of transmitting the material” fall flat and false, because the videos clearly show the doctors negotiating a price at one point – wanting to charge per-item vs. a flat fee for several specimens because “we can see how much we can get out of it.”

PPH gets money from the mother for the abortion; then double-dips by collecting money for the baby body parts from the procurement companies.

“Switching price tags and padding the expense account are two things GOD hates.” – Proverbs 20:10 MSG.

In a news flash, a devil-worshipping group calling itself the Satanic Temple is raising funds to promote abortion-on-demand to counter legal efforts such as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and 20-week abortion bans. A highly publicized ceremonial unveiling of a satanic figure, an event billed as the “largest public satanic ceremony in history,” sold $25 and $75 tickets, the proceeds of which will be used to support the reproductive rights legal action fund.

Why connect the two? It’s a three headed demonic force.

Again, the pro-life struggle is part of a bigger battle going on in our world – a battle for souls – a battle between good and evil. Many don’t understand; in today’s culture, people like Cecile Richards call evil, good and good, evil. They are backed by so much money; their lying message is repeated so often, people begin to believe it; creating a ball of confusion.

In 1 Kings 18:20-40 ESV, Elijah asked the people: “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.”

It quickly becomes clear their “little g gods” have no power. On the other hand, CREATOR GOD proves to be mighty! Read the full passage here.

In closing: “The night is far gone; the day is at hand… let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.” – Romans 13:12 ESV.

“Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;” – Matthew 9:37 ESV.

We need to pray for souls, not kill them for sport and profit.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. – Romans 12:21 ESV.

Fr. Pavone: No surprise in court order blocking undercover videos

NEW YORK – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the court order blocking the release of undercover videos showing employees of a tissue procurement firm that works in tandem with Planned Parenthood.

“The temporary restraining order which StemExpress obtained against our colleagues at the Center for Medical Progress is a very narrow one that will not affect the release of more powerful videos to come, including the one released this morning. The order, which was hastily issued, will be followed up with a hearing in a few weeks.

“There is no surprise here. StemExpress and Planned Parenthood are guilty of both moral and legal wrongdoing, and ultimately their only defense is to try to shut us up. That effort will fail.

“We at Priests for Life not only will continue to help lead the effort to make the public aware of the atrocities of abortion and the sale of baby body parts, but we will do so in direct defiance of any effort to stop us or our pro-life colleagues.”

Fr. Pavone to Hillary Clinton: Get Off the Fence!

NEW YORK — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded to Hillary Clinton’s comments about the Planned Parenthood videos uncovering their sale of body parts.

“Hillary Clinton said, ‘I have seen pictures from them and obviously find them disturbing.’ That’s like saying that pictures of the Holocaust are disturbing, while permitting the Holocaust to continue.

“The only reason we see disturbing pictures and videos of the sale of baby body parts is because those babies are dehumanized and killed by the legal abortions Hillary herself defends.

“It is time for her, the Democratic party, and all pro-abortion politicians to get off the fence. Either reject abortion altogether, or keep quiet. But don’t insult our intelligence by allowing a practice to continue and then complaining that its results are disturbing.”

Fr. Frank Pavone issued the following statement upon today’s release of undercover video of Planned Parenthood:

“America will not reject abortion until America sees abortion. The video footage released today gives Americans yet another opportunity to do precisely that.

“Planned Parenthood personnel, looking at the body parts they sell, talk about legs, spinal columns, kidneys and hearts, not ‘blobs of tissue.’

“In order to sell baby body parts, there first has to be a baby. It is time for those who have been denying that fact to admit it, and for those who have been admitting it only in private to admit it in public as well.”

Cecile Richards ‘defense’ shows Planned Parenthood is running scared

July 27th, 2015

PriestsForLife

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: July 27, 2015

347-286-7277

NEW YORK – In a telling interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC This Week, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards evaded direct questions about what the two videos released by the Center for Medical Progress show regarding the abortion giant’s harvesting and selling of baby parts.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded:

“Cecile Richard’s defense was no more than a deflection. She kept asserting that the videos were “highly edited.” But the words coming out of the mouths of Deborah Nucatola and Mary Gatter weren’t placed there by editors; they were placed there by Deborah and Mary. And those words indicate that both the prices and the procedures are altered.

“Planned Parenthood is clearly on the defensive. Richards asserts that she looks forward to the facts coming out. If I were her, I wouldn’t be looking forward to that at all, because the additional videos coming out will only confirm what we have already said: Planned Parenthood kills babies, including late in pregnancy, and harvests their organs for sale.

“Instead of trying to attack what pro-life people are doing, Planned Parenthood needs to explain what it is doing, and then it needs to stop doing it, whether that be by choice or by force of law.”

Body Parts for Sale: I Shudder to think what happened to my babies, says Alveda King

July 22nd, 2015

lambointhewombclick here to enlarge picture

As the scandalous saga of Planned Parenthood‘s harvesting of baby body parts continues, www.bodyparts.com I shudder to think what happened to three of my babies. The issue isn’t only whether these transactions are legal or not. The question of human decency is also key.

As a post abortive mother, I shudder to think of what happened to bodies of three of my babies. My two abortions and a subsequent miscarriage in the 1970s,  all due to wrong thinking and misinformation from Planned Parenthood and the anti-life industry at large are all part of a dark season of my life. I write about these experiences in my books KING RULES, HOW CAN THE DREAM SURVIVE and SONS OF THUNDER.

I can remember the hours in the abortion facilities; the pain, the stress and duress of procedures that left my womb empty and my heart broken; having papers pushed before me for signature with minimal if any explanation. Like many women, I was there with conflicting thoughts and feelings. All that time not knowing that my babies would share in my pain.

As one woman explains: “I went for a procedure. Upon arrival, I was given five pills; two antibiotics and three sedatives. As I waited for the pills to take effect, I was given a clipboard of papers to sign. I was distracted and the duress was debilitating. The staff urged me to quickly finish my paperwork so that the procedure could take place.”

This is a common scenario. There is little time to consider what is happening; what will happen to the body of the mother and her baby. This is why a 48 hour waiting period between the consultation and procedure can be so key.

I didn’t have that precious time. And I and my children suffered the consequences. The Silent No More Awareness Campaign shares important details regarding the lack of disclosure a woman experiences during the “procedure” that can result in having her baby’s body parts harvested.

The issue of abortion is being danced around by media as this body part debacle unfolds. As all unravels, we will discover that there are heinous tentacles from a Three Headed Monster that are at the core of the assault on humanity.

It won’t be the media who helps heal the hearts and wombs of women. It will be prayer; as we see in this impassioned plea from a young woman.

Let us pray for strength as truth crushed to earth rises again.

PRAY FOR AMERICA

Alveda King: Open Letter to the Congressional Black Caucus, Concerned Black Clergy and other paralyzed leaders

July 20th, 2015

 IMG_3841

click here to enlarge picture

Dear CBC, I am writing to you today because my heart is heavy over the deafening silence coming from you regarding a recent video that has gone viral exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting and selling aborted babies’ body parts.

If they or anyone else had been exposed for harvesting and selling animal body parts, there would be such an outrage from the left and right. “Save the whales! Save the dolphins! Save the doggies and cats!” people would declare. But for some reason it seems to be okay to chop up the unborn babies and harvest their body parts.

It’s been a week since the video that shocked a nation was released and not a word from the CBC.

CBC, I ask you, “Are you so beholding to the abortion lobby that you are totally paralyzed and unable to garner the necessary will to denounce their behavior?”

The National Black Prolife Coalition of which I am a founding member has addressed you before challenging your support of the abortion industry that targets Blacks; those you profess to be protecting and fighting for. You never responded.

But I thought surely this current gruesome behavior on the part of PPH would be the catalyst for change. I thought to myself, “Surely, now the CBC will yank their support of an industry that is involved in the illegal harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies. But yet we hear nothing. Your silence is defeating.

My mother Naomi King and I visited the new Center for Civil and Human Rights Museum in Atlanta. There among the treasured artifacts we read “Secrets of Married Happiness,” Uncle MLK’s handwritten sermon about holy matrimony.

There were many displays throughout the museum, not just about MLK. Yet, like your position of silence, there is nothing there about the helpless mothers and babies who are victims of the abortion mills of our times. Their plight screams of human injustice and human trafficking at their work. Yet you remain silent.

For the record, my Uncle MLK was Prolife. Even though his wife attended the awards ceremony where a plaque was attributed to MLK, he didn’t attend. MLK, my Daddy AD King and their father ML “Daddy” King were Prolife. Granddaddy even saved me and one of my children from abortion. Thank God he did.

I became suspicious of the motivation behind PPH awards and grants while investigating the so called MLK acceptance speech for the PPH Maggie Award. My Uncle MLK didn’t write the speech, didn’t attend the ceremony, didn’t believe that abortion was a civil right. Like Mrs. Laura Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush, Mrs. Coretta Scott King was prochoice in favor of a woman’s right to choose abortion. She accepted the Maggie Award instead of her husband.

During her lifetime, in her own words, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger said:

While the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors, they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table… They do not do this with white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the clinic, he can go among them with enthusiasm and…knowledge, which…will have far-reaching results among the colored people…The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Yes, Sanger and her Federation targeted and sometimes paid Black leaders – doctors, preachers, lawyers, teachers – with grants and scholarships – to convince them to join her. Does this sound like love and compassion?

Attention CBC (Congressional Black Caucus and Concerned Black clergy). As a post abortive mother, I know first hand the pain abortion can bring. There is no agape love in abortion and trafficking baby body parts. They are hateful and violent deeds.

Matthew 6:24 says, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Well, CBC, you cannot serve both Planned Parenthood and your constituents. By serving Planned Parenthood you are not only hating the other or despising the other but your position is helping to kill our people.

It’s not too late to put your constituents first, where they belong. Get behind; no take the lead in the investigations of Planned Parenthood. Take the lead in calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. It time to stand up for truth.
