Demonstration of Solidarity with Unborn Children
and
Their Mothers and Fathers



Press Release (click)

Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Demonstration of Solidarity
with Unborn Children and their Mothers

Sister Simone Campbell
Sister Simone Campbell
Erie-area residents will conduct a demonstration on Wednesday, March 26 in response to a visit by Sister Simone Campbell, a political-activist nun who doesn't know if the lives of unborn children ought to be protected.

Sister Campbell will be in Erie to speak about "Peace and Justice" and be honored with an award by Mercyhurst University.

People for Life will be represented at the demonstration. We will be there to say: Protect ALL the children! Peace and Justice that is withheld from the most defenseless and marginalized members of the human family is NOT Peace and Justice at all. All human beings are entitled to equal protection under the law.

The greatest destroyer of peace in the world, as another nun, Mother Teresa, said, is abortion, the willful destruction of totally defenseless human beings. Government-sanctioned abortion, at the rate of over ONE MILLIION a year, is by any standard the biggest affront to justice in the United States today.

Sister Campbell was invited to speak at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, which nominated pro-abortion President Barack Obama for a second term. During the convention, Sister Campbell was asked a question about protecting unborn children:

THE WEEKLY STANDARD: "On the legal question, do you think there should be penalties against abortion doctors? I mean, should it be illegal to perform abortions?"

SISTER SIMONE CAMPBELL: Thatís beyond my pay grade. I donít know.

This, from an outspoken political activist and lobbyist with extensive views on matters as complex as the federal budget and the national economy who appears entirely unbothered by "pay grade" distinctions when she (frequently) opposes the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops or criticizes the Pope.

Contact People for Life if you would like more information about the demonstration.

41st Bus Trip to the March for Life

March for Life 2014 Photo Album (larger pics)

Here are a few pics from our annual March for Life Bus Trip. The March for Life took place on Wednesday, January 22, 2014. About 150 people made the trip this year. About 165 were expected, but there were some last-minute candellations due to illness and some uneasiness about the weather. A winter storm passed through Washington on Tuesday. By Wednesday, however, the skies were clear and bright sunshine helped to ease the winter chill.

A special message from the President of the United States to the nation's biggest abortion provider
Obama must have missed the memo: NO Planned Parenthood location provides mammograms.
Planned Parenthood DOES, however, carry out over 360,000 abortion-killings a year.

Note: Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid, not "republicans," actually threatened to shut down the government -- if funding for Planned Parenthood was cut.


Planned Parenthood lies about their "women's health services" to get your tax dollars.
(NO Planned Parenthood outlet in the United States of America provides mammograms.)

Call and e-mail your Members of Congress and tell them:
NO government funding for Planned Parenthood!

Also see: Expose Planned Parenthood and Live Action Films.




You may or may not be surprised by this quick look into the
Planned Parenthood / Pro-Choice culture.
Planned Parenthood wants you to believe that abortion is a negligible part of its mission, but Planned Parenthood's biggest supporters seem to have a different impression.

Call and e-mail your Members of Congress and tell them:
NO government funding for Planned Parenthood!

The Fig Leaf That Fell Off
President Obama's "pro-life" executive order couldn't save the "Stupak Democrats"
... of special interest to residents of Pennsylvania's 3rd Congressional District
By Dr. Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science, Grove City College
Posted with permission from The Catholic World Report.

The Obama Health Care Law, known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), subsidizes abortion-on-demand.

BACKGROUND DOCUMENTATION
Most of the following documents are in PDF format and may take several moments to load.

Affidavit of Americans United for Life President and CEO Charmaine Yoest
Americans United for Life (AUL) has prepared a sworn affidavit, dated on October 18, 2010, demonstrating that the Obama health care law provides federal subsidies for elective abortion.

Affidavit of National Right to Life Committee Legislative Director Douglas Johnson
The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) has produced a sworn affidavit, submitted on October 12, 2010 to the Ohio Elections Commission along with 16 supporting documents, demonstrating that the Obama health care law provides federal subsidies for elective abortion.

Analysis by the USCCB

Legal analysis by the USCCB Office of the General Council

Protect Life Act
Cosponsored by 124 Members of Congress as of September 30, 2010 (not including Kathy Dahlkemper), the bill identifies serious abortion-related flaws in the PPACA and provides the necessary corrections.

Analysis by the Congressional Research Service
This document illustrates that neither the PPACA itself nor the executive order promulgated by President Obama prevent all direct federal payments for abortion.

Executive Order 13535 - Ensuring Enforcement and Implementation of Abortion Restrictions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
Unfortunately, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act contains no substantial abortion restrictions to ensure "enforcement or implementation of." Despite the lofty rhetoric, Obama's executive order only limits a tiny portion for the abortion-funding problem: federal payments to "community health centers."

Center for Reproductive Rights
"The executive order issued by the President on abortion only addressed rules for segregating funds for abortion coverage in the healthcare exchanges and limits on community health centers." (emphasis added)

March 20, 2010 Letter from Robert A. Desrto, Professor at Law, Catholic University of America
This letter helps explain why President Obama's executive order is expected to be litigated and ruled illegal.

Who's Lying?
Kathy Dahlkemper says that pro-life organizations are lying for political purposes. Did she not establish that all of the nation's major pro-life organizations are LIARS when she argued correctly that money appropriated by the PPACA for the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plans will NOT pay for abortions?

FREE BUMPER STICKER
Get one of these bumper stickers from our downtown Erie office, 1611 Peach St., Suite 321 between 9 and 5, Monday through Friday. Or send your request with $1.00 to cover shipping and handling to People for Life, P.O. Box 1126, Erie, PA 16512. Help sound the alert to stop President Obama from using "health care reform" to further impose his pro-abortion agenda on America.



People for Life opposes all acts of violence. Violence directed against abortion facilities amounts to terrorism and deserves unequivocal condemnation. Such terrorism is an affront to the sanctity of human life and an affront to the rule of law, without which we can never hope to achieve a just--or maintain a free--society.

PRO-CHOICE VANDALISM

On Thursday, May 1, 2008, a peaceful Cemetery of the Innocents display at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point (UWSP) was vandalized in broad daylight and in defiance of campus security officers by a Student Senator, Roderick King. SEE THE VIDEO.

Those who deny others the right to life itself are not infrequently zealous to deny others the right to the freedom of speech.


PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION
"The Court finds that the testimony at trial and before Congress establishes that D&X [partial-birth abortion] is a gruesome, brutal, barbaric, and uncivilized medical procedure . . . [and finds] credible evidence that D&X abortions subject fetuses to severe pain." -- U.S. District Judge Richard Casey, New York
