Words To Live By

Pope John Paul II spoke these beautiful words at the World Youth Conference in Denver in August, 1993

“America, you are beautiful indeed, and blessed in so many ways… But your greatest beauty and your richest blessing is found in the human person: in each man, woman and child, in every immigrant, in every native-born son and daughter…For this reason, America, your deepest identity and truest character as a nation is revealed in the position you take towards the human person. The ultimate test of your greatness in the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless ones.The best traditions of your land presume respect for those who cannot defend themselves. If you want equal justice for all, and true freedom and lasting peace, then, America, defend life! All the great causes that are yours today will have meaning only to the extent that you guarantee the right to life and protect the human person.”

Tired of the baby killing? Protest ABQ…Year of Rebuke!

Tired of the baby killing? Protest ABQ…Year of Rebuke!

Protest ABQ Organization Meeting   

This Friday, I (PDL) will host an organizing meeting at Project Defending Life for a new campaign called Protest ABQ. Protest ABQ will be a ministry of Project Defending Life and will be a protest campaign utilizing graphic imaging and other means to send a message to the voters and leaders of ABQ (and NM) that their vote to kill babies and support baby killers will not be tolerated. This campaign is designed to end the baby killing in ABQ and in NM.

Everyone is welcome to join us if you support the use of graphic imaging to show the truth about abortion…i.e. baby killing! This meeting is to organize a campaign to protest ABQ and not to debate the merit of graphic imaging or the recent failed vote. It is time to move on past the vote and it is time to get serious about protesting the killing of our little brothers and sisters in the womb.

What: Protest ABQ

Where: Project Defending Life 615 San Mateo Blvd ABQ 87108 (just south of main PDL office)

When: Friday November 29th 10:00 am till noon  

These protests will be peaceful and constitutionally legal. We will not condone violence of any kind by anyone in this campaign. Indeed, we are protesting the use of violence…against babies in the womb. We will peacefully protest this violence.

Here are the words of soon to be “Saint” Pope John Paul II in Evangelium Vitae (in case anyone has questions)…

58. Among all the crimes which can be committed against life, procured abortion has characteristics making it particularly serious and deplorable. The Second Vatican Council defines abortion, together with infanticide, as an “unspeakable crime” But today, in many people’s consciences, the perception of its gravity has become progressively obscured. The acceptance of abortion in the popular mind, in behavior and even in law itself, is a telling sign of an extremely dangerous crisis of the moral sense, which is becoming more and more incapable of distinguishing between good and evil, even when the fundamental right to life is at stake. Given such a grave situation, we need now more than ever to have the courage to look the truth in the eye and to call things by their proper name, without yielding to convenient compromises or to the temptation of self-deception. In this regard the reproach of the Prophet is extremely straightforward: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness” (Is 5:20). Especially in the case of abortion there is a widespread use of ambiguous terminology, such as “interruption of pregnancy”, which tends to hide abortion’s true nature and to attenuate its seriousness in public opinion. Perhaps this linguistic phenomenon is itself a symptom of an uneasiness of conscience. But no word has the power to change the reality of things: procured abortion is the deliberate and direct killing, by whatever means it is carried out, of a human being in the initial phase of his or her existence, extending from conception to birth. The moral gravity of procured abortion is apparent in all its truth if we recognize that we are dealing with murder…

Moving Forward in ABQ, UNMCRH…The Weak Link

Moving Forward in ABQ, UNMCRH…The Weak Link

 

There are three abortion clinics in ABQ providing abortions, Planned Parenthood located directly across the street (50 feet!) from Project Defending Life. Several people throughout the week frequently minister and sidewalk counsel there including local “Pro-Life Saint,” Phil Leahy. After three years of pretty intense public awareness, many people are going to Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) pretty consistently to minister and sidewalk counsel. The third one has kind of slid under the radar, UNM Center for Reproductive Health, “UNMCRH (UNM’s free standing publicly funded abortion clinic doing abortions up to 22wks).

I spoke with someone today out at UNMCRH, who mentioned that they wished people would come out more often and try and reach the women going into the abortion clinic.

After prayer and reflection, moving our pro-life momentum forward in ABQ, UNMCRH is the weak link of the abortion cartel here in ABQ (due to the fact that since UNM is a public institution and publicly funded, they are highly sensitive to public exposure concerning their radical abortion agenda).

So, I have decided to step back from my presence out at (SWO) and crank up the the public exposure out at UNMCRH (1701 Moon St NE, Albuquerque, NM 87112). Beginning tomorrow, Friday Nov. 22nd. I will have a daily presence out at UNMCRH Monday-Friday 9am-12pm. I welcome you to join me.

I urge the people who are consistently faithful out at SWO to remain steadfast.
