The loss of any innocent life is a huge tragedy, please pray for all who are in danger and for those who have already passed away.. 🙏😔 On a side note, we’re sharing this video since Planned Parenthood blocked us right after sharing this and tagging them… If saving innocent lives is your highest priority then we should be able to agree on this, enough is enough!

This was the cover of LIFE magazine in 1965, 8 years before Roe: “The Drama of Life Before Birth.”
The “classic” arguments from the other side are collapsing under the weight of science. “No one knows when life begins” and “It’s a blob of tissue” are frankly on the wane, especially in the context of surgical abortion, which is how the vast majority of abortions are done today.
The zygote is composed of human DNA and other human molecules, so its nature is undeniably human and not some other species.
The new human zygote has a genetic composition that is absolutely unique from itself, different from any other human that has ever existed, including that of its mother (thus disproving the claim that what is involved in abortion is merely “a woman and her body”).
This DNA includes a complete “design,” guiding not only early development but even hereditary attributes that will appear in childhood and adulthood, from hair and eye color to personality traits.
It is also quite clear that the earliest human embryo is biologically alive. It fulfills the four criteria needed to establish biological life: metabolism, growth, reaction to stimuli, and reproduction.
The cardiovascular system is the first major system to function. At about 22 days after conception the child’s heart begins to circulate his own blood, unique to that of his mother’s, and his heartbeat can be detected on ultrasound.
Electrical brain activity can be detected at six or seven weeks, and by the end of the eighth week, the child, now known scientifically as a “fetus,” has developed all of his organs and bodily structures.
By ten weeks after conception the child can make bodily movements.
Today, parents can see the development of their children with their own eyes. The obstetric ultra-sound done typically at 20 weeks gestation provides not only pictures but a real-time video of the active life of the child in the womb: clasping his hands, sucking his thumb, yawning, stretching, getting the hiccups, covering his ears to a loud sound nearby– even smiling.

“I’m Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the Roe vs. Wade decision that brought ‘legal’ child killing to America. I was persuaded by feminist attorneys to lie; to say that I was raped, and needed an abortion. It was all a lie. Since then, over 50 million babies have been murdered. I will take this burden to my grave. Please, don’t follow in my mistakes.
Back in 1973, I was a very confused twenty-one year old with one child and facing an unplanned pregnancy. At the time I fought to obtain a legal abortion, but truth be told, I have three daughters and never had an abortion.
I think it’s safe to say that the entire abortion industry is based on a lie…. I am dedicated to spending the rest of my life undoing the law that bears my name. You read about me in history books, but now I am dedicated to spreading the truth about preserving the dignity of all human life from natural conception to natural death. Today as a born again Christian and faithful Catholic, I am working to reverse Roe and I am urgently asking for your help right now.” —Norma McCorvey (September 22, 1947 – February 18, 2017) #CatholicConnect #Prolife#God#Lord#marchforlifedc#womensmarchdc#1lifela#feminist#loveyourbaby#adoption#mybodymychoice#dtla#grandpark#wakeup#abortion#killsbabies#missrepresentation#contraception#janeroe#roevwade#abortionlaws#unplannedpregnancy#helpme#prolifefeminist#gethelp#babiesareagiftfromgod#Maryprayforus#catholic#
Over half a million people in Washington, D.C., stood for the dignity and value of every human life. The @marchforlife is the world’s largest pro-life event, and this year marks 45 years since the Roe v. Wade decision.
“A Christian can never conform to a law which is in itself immoral, and such is the case of a law which would admit in principle the liceity of abortion. Nor can a Christian take part in a propaganda campaign in favor of such a law or vote for it … On the contrary, it is the task of law to pursue reform of society and conditions of life in all its milieux, starting with the most deprived, so that always and everywhere it may be possible to give every child coming into this world a welcome worthy of a person.”

“Although it is customary to divide human development into prenatal and postnatal periods, it is important to realize that birth is merely a dramatic event during development resulting in a change in environment.”

Two organizations that worked with Planned Parenthood to distribute the parts of aborted fetuses to researchers admitted to breaking fetal tissue laws in a lawsuit settled with the Orange County District Attorney’s office Friday.
DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, two sister companies, agreed to a settlement that comes with an admission of liability after the district attorney’s office brought a civil lawsuit against the companies in 2016, prosecutors announced.
The settlement terms dictate that the two companies must close and stop operating their businesses in California within a two to four-month period. The companies also must pay out $7.8 million in the form of donations and biological materials to a medical school’s scientific teaching institution as well as paying $195,000 in civil penalties.
The DA said the settlement seized all profits from DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, which they got by illegally selling fetal tissue.
The two companies worked as the go-between between abortion clinics and scientists who wanted to use the fetal tissue to help with their research, according to the lawsuit. They sold fetal tissues for up to a $1,100 per vial between 2009-2015, prosecutors added.
“The companies also regularly offered ‘sales’ pricing promotions, including, for example, a ‘25% off’ summer sale and ‘25% off’ fall promotion in 2013. Sales staff was given wide flexibility in using discounts in order to close a sale, because they all knew they still ended up ‘on top.‘”

“Every Child has a Right to Life!”
“I do not want to punish aching mankind, I desire to heal it, pressing it to My Merciful Heart. I use punishment when they themselves force Me to do so; My hand is reluctant to take hold of the sword of justice.” (Diary, 1588)
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has called abortion an “intrinsic evil” in our society, the ending of which ought to be among the highest priorities for Catholics today. Approximately 25 percent of Americans are churchgoing Catholics, yet the most recent polls show that only 5 percent of Americans today look upon the protection of the lives of unborn children as the most important issue in the upcoming presidential and congressional elections. Something is deeply wrong here. We Catholics need to wake up — and what happened in St. Faustina’s time can be a “cautionary tale” in this regard. God is not going to let this kind of indifference to the “slaughter of the innocents” going on in our midst carry on indefinitely. If we want America to continue to be blessed and to be a beacon of freedom and human rights for the world, then we each need to do our part to help protect the human rights of “the least of these my brethren” (Mt 25:46) in our midst.
The very future of our country may depend on it.
“All would wish to be saved and to enjoy the glory of paradise; but to gain heaven, it is necessary to walk in the straight road that leads to eternal bliss. This road is the observance of the divine commandments. Hence, in his preaching, the Baptist exclaimed: Make straight the way of the Lord.” -St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

She [Sr. Faustina] wrote in her diary that Jesus Himself said that He was about to destroy one of the most beautiful cities of our country like Sodom was destroyed on account of the crimes perpetrated there [Diary, entry 39]. Having read about these things in the Diary I asked her what does the prophecy mean? She answered confirming what she wrote and replying to a further question of mine, on account of what kind of sins God was going to inflict these punishments. She answered: especially for the killing of infants not yet born, the most grievous crime of all.
This special concern for the killing of unborn children fits with what St. Faustina wrote about mysterious bodily pains she experienced, which no medicines could relieve, and which she offered up to heaven, “in order to offer reparation to God for the souls murdered in the wombs of wicked mothers” ( Diary, entry 1276).
Her confessor [Fr. Sopocko] later discovered that, between the First and Second World Wars, the city of Warsaw, which as the capital of Poland, was also one of the great capitals of abortion in the world! While Sister Faustina lived and prayed, that city was spared. But hardly a year after her death, Poland was invaded, and by the time the war was over, Warsaw was almost completely destroyed [much like Sodom and Gomorrah!].
