Pro-Life This Week – November 22, 2019
Week in Review – Amid the outrageous death toll, there is much to be thankful for.
Despite the fact that the jury in the civil trial in San Francisco of the founders of the Center for Medical Progress and its undercover journalists who documented Planned Parenthood’s baby body parts business entered GUILTY verdicts for all the pro-lifers, we are thankful for the great legal teams that defended the heroic pro-lifers. This case, with a judge who once helped open a Planned Parenthood facility and blocked the jurors from even seeing the videos the defendants were on trial for recording, never had a chance. Yet, the defense attorneys spent thousands of hours over many years to get the truth out to the public. With Planned Parenthood officials admitting in court to many illegal actions, they have set the stage for future prosecution of Planned Parenthood. May God bless all the defense teams.
There is growing opposition to Planned Parenthood all across the country. In the last year, American Life League’s STOPP organization has become intimately involved with a large number of efforts, including Port Saint Lucie (FL); El Paso, Tyler, and four other cities in Texas; Glendale, Baldwin Park, Pasadena, and three other cities in California; along with additional efforts in Ohio, Maryland, and New York. We thank God for raising up these wonderful people all across America with the specific goal to end Planned Parenthood’s attacks on our children (born and preborn).
This Thanksgiving, we must give thanks for the Trump administration and all they are doing to support life and take support away from the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood. Despite being opposed at every turn in Congress, having to fight every pro-life regulation in numerous court cases, and facing sabotage from within the existing government bureaucracy, they are putting in place many conscience and other protections. The administration must be commended for the 160 judges they have managed to get confirmed—judges who will change the courts for decades to come.
We thank God for the millions of pro-life advocates all across the country, including the prayer warriors who do the absolutely necessary work of providing prayer support for the movement. Most will never be seen, or identified, in public. They say their prayers in their homes, outside abortion facilities, in churches, meeting halls, and other worship facilities, without fanfare, asking God to protect the preborn babies from murder and teens from the ravages of sexual sin.
We add to those numbers those who stand outside abortion facilities speaking with women and men about not killing their children, those who participate in Red Rose Rescue and peacefully, prayerfully, enter abortion facilities to give a rose to the mothers and provide a witness to the humanity of the preborn child.
Then, of course, there are the pro-life leaders of the thousands of pro-life organizations across the nation—and all who work in these organizations to keep the movement going and who are clearly responsible for the hundreds of thousands of babies who are saved from abortion each year. We include all those working in or for pro-life radio, TV and print media, bringing the truth about life and the ravages of abortion, pornography, and apathy to the general public.
As we enter into Thanksgiving week, let us pause and remember all that we have to be thankful for and, then, thank God for caring about us.

Action Item of the Week – HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
This coming week, we celebrate Thanksgiving across the United States. It is a day we should use to thank our Creator for all that He has given us.
Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, composed the prayer below for the pro-life community. We encourage you to include it, or another pro-life Thanksgiving prayer, in your activities for the day . . .
A Pro-life Prayer for Thanksgiving Day
Father of mercies,
God of all creation,
Source of life and of every blessing,
We thank you today, and every day of our lives,
For all that you give us!
Our thanksgiving is not only a duty,
But a joy and a source of strength,
Because it reminds us of your faithful love,
And inspires us with the hope of a future filled with blessings!
Lord, we thank you for guiding our fathers,
Who, inspired by the prophets
And by the saving work of your Son,
Founded a nation where all might live as one,
Acknowledging their dependence on you
As the source of their right to life.
We thank you for your blessings in the past,
And for all that, with your help, we must yet achieve.
We ask you to bless us as we thank you,
That our giving thanks may be accompanied by our firm resolve
To proclaim, celebrate, and serve
The gift of human life, born and unborn.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Pro-life Social Media – Planned Parenthood Tweets “Congrats” to Pro-Abortion Grammy Nominees
It makes perfect sense that an industry that celebrates debauchery through music would also favor the dismemberment of pre-born children. Look at how Planned Parenthood gives a nod to the so-called “artists” in line to get a Grammy Music Award.
Artists that support abortion access get nominated for #Grammys. Coincidence??? We think nah. Congrats on the nominations!— Planned Parenthood (@PPFA) November 20, 2019
A sample of lyrics from the artists that the music industry is willing to award:
Lizzo / “Faded”
That sucky wife is pregnant with another suck-a** kid
I’m askin “When will it end?”, waiting on that meteor shower
To rain down and bring all these suck n****s to they final hour
John Legend / “Baby, It’s Cold Outside (updated)”
Her: What will my friends think…?
Him: I think they should rejoice . . .
Her: If I have one more drink . . . ?
Him: It’s your body, and your choice.
Tove Lo / “Disco T**s”
You think I’m drunk now, but I am not
You’re so pretty, come roll with me
I’m ’bout to get down, I’m high as f***
I’m no chemist, but it’s good s***
Is it any wonder why ratings for the Grammys is less than stellar?
Radiance Foundation nails it.
Artists, like @JohnLegend @Lizzo @ArianaGrande and @Billieeilish, that get nominated for #Grammys weren’t…aborted. Coincidence??? We think nah. Congrats to any #GRAMMYNoms who were never discarded at #PlannedParenthood. https://t.co/JKSQSdJG1p #BansOffMyBody? #BanViolence. pic.twitter.com/JhlsnWaxAB— Radiance Foundation (@lifehaspurpose) November 20, 2019
Everybody getting a Grammy has another thing in common—they were allowed to be born.
Yeah, some real gems in there!— Eric (@EricZDouglas) November 21, 2019
You’re ok with #Grammys making abortion support a pre condition to receiving a nomination? That’s weird.— Blue finger PhD & other titles 👏🏼 (@BlueFingerBlack) November 20, 2019
Wow, that’s a list of losers there.— Conan Malinois (@Strat70404613) November 21, 2019
Leave it to the Simpons to remind us how important a Grammy Award is:
