Local Pro-Life Events This Week (January 17-20, 2018)

Local Pro-Life Events This Week (January 17-20, 2018)

By Bud and Tara Shaver

This week there are several opportunities to stand for life in New Mexico

This January during Sanctity of Life Month we have been blessed with the opportunity to visit local pro-life churches and encourage them to be a blessing for life in New Mexico in 2018. One thing that we have noticed is that Christians are excited and eager to be a part of saving babies lives and to be salt and light in our communites, so here are some ways to do so this week.
  • All families are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Add Phoenix to the list of places where late-term babies are legally killed

Add Phoenix to the list of places where late-term babies are legally killed

  • Report by Priests for Life, the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.

Abortionist DeShawn Taylor, who previously was caught on undercover video joking about what a workout it is to dismember a baby in a late-term abortion, is apparently still building her biceps.

In the latest undercover call released by Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico, a staffer at Taylor’s Phoenix abortion mill books an appointment for a woman who said she is a healthy mom pregnant with a healthy baby.

The majority of the call is spent talking about price — $2,300 for an abortion at 22 weeks and $2,500 one week later.

Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, and Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico, released the following statement regarding the call:

“Arizona is another state in the long list of places across America where late-term abortions are a common occurrence. In this undercover call to Desert Star Family Planning, the caller makes sure that she can have an abortion at 22 weeks of pregnancy even though she is healthy and there are no abnormalities with the baby. She is told the clinic does elective abortions through 23 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy.

“DeShawn Taylor, the abortionist at Desert Star Family Planning, who was confirmed to be the one to perform this particular late-term abortion, made national news earlier this year when the Center for Medical Progress released footage of conversations with her about the harvest and sale of aborted baby remains. She was caught on video joking about the brutality of the late-term procedure stating, ‘It takes a bit more [arm strength to dismember a late term baby]. I have to hit the gym for this.’

“In addition to these babies being fully developed enough to survive outside the womb between 22-24 weeks of pregnancy, their lucrative body parts, organs and tissues are then being harvested for experimental research.”

Why does the law allow healthy babies at 24 weeks and beyond to be killed?

Why does the law allow healthy babies at 24 weeks and beyond to be killed?

  • Report by Priests for Life, the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.

Priests for Life this week hosted a briefing in the Senate Russell Building in Washington, D.C., on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and specifically on undercover calls Priests for Life has released. House and Senate staffers attended.

Also this week, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, hosted a national webcast on the same topic. You can listen to the webcast here.

These informational sessions focused on a series of undercover calls that Priests for Life is commissioning with Abortion Free New Mexico The calls are being made to legal abortion clinics and are designed to educate the public that healthy babies carried by healthy mothers are being killed in the later stages of pregnancy. This information can help prepare the U.S. Senate for the vital vote coming up on the Pain-Capable bill this month.

Today, the 25th undercover call was released, demonstrating that abortion to 23 weeks and six days weeks is legal in Massachusetts and available to anyone who can come up with $3,300. Previous calls have revealed that healthy babies can be scheduled for termination at 32 weeks.

In a joint statement released today, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico, noted that:

“Late-term abortions are occurring in our country more frequently than most Americans are led to believe. This investigation has revealed that late-term abortions are an elective procedure, women do not have to be experiencing health issues and there doesn’t need to be anything abnormal about the baby they are carrying to legally obtain one.

“In Brookline, Massachusetts, the abortion worker makes it clear that Women’s Health Services does elective late-term abortions through 23 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy simply because state law allows it. Babies at this age are able to live outside the womb and they should have every legal right to do so.

“Please contact your U.S. Senator and urge them to vote for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act so that these babies can be protected from inhumane late term abortions.”

A second webcast for clergy is scheduled for Thursday, January 11 at 3 p.m. EST. Please share with your Pastor or Priest.
