I am happy to announce my brand new, improved blog. It is going to be the main place from which you’ll hear commentary from me on all the pro-life developments and action items, and features will continue to be added to it in coming days and weeks.
On here today is a video that I’d like you to watch, with an update about some upcoming activities in Congress this week, and pro-life events in coming weeks and months.
This past week in Philadelphia, our Pro-life Symposium was a major success! The National Catholic Register did an excellent article about it, and I am very grateful to the World Meeting of Families, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and the Pontifical Council for the Family at the Vatican for asking us to organize this official event.As many of you know, another series of protests against Planned Parenthood is set for Saturday, October 10. I hope you will be participating.That day also launches a period of prayer and fasting, October 10-18, for an end to the evils of abortion and Planned Parenthood.
Also, we are announcing that on Saturday, October 24, there will be a national funeral for the babies whose bodies were discovered in the abortion clinic of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. We named these babies and demanded that the Medical Examiner release them for burial with religious services. They refused that request from us and from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and recently cremated and buried the bodies themselves. We will therefore hold a funeral on the 24th. Stay tuned for more details.
Looking ahead to January, I hope you can spend two mornings with me in Washington, DC, on the day before the March for Life, and then on the March for Life day itself.
On the morning of Thursday, January 21 I will help lead a national protest of a new Planned Parenthood location in Washington, DC. Then, the following morning, I will help lead the National Prayer Service at Constitution Hall from 8:30 to 10:30am, with a Mass there at 7:30.
Please mark your calendars!
Talk to you soon!
