Marching for Life, Congressman King’s Our Brother, The Wall Makes Sense, MLK DAY All About Love

Friday, January 18th, 2019

As “boots on the ground” in Washington, DC for the 24th Annual National Memorial Prayer Service and the March for Life today, I’m also getting calls to defend Congressman Steve King for racist remarks. Meanwhile, my family and I are in the heat and heart of the celebration of the 90th birthday of my uncle Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And people are still fighting about the wall.

I’m being asked if Congressman King a racist? Actually, from my point of view, until we all accept the scientific, philosophical and spiritual truth that we are all one human race, one Blood, we’re all a little racist.

Think about it. As long as we continue to refer to ourselves in our separate ethnic groups as different races we will never break away from racism. Act 17:26 of the Bible (NIV) says, “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” This is why Uncle MLK suggested that we should be brothers and sisters, and not be foolish.

Along with sharing our human commonality, Congressman King and I mutually share regard for the sanctity of life. So I’m praying for my brother.

Also, this weekend, as our nation forges on towards trying to reopen our government by agreeing on a solution to secure the southern border let’s remember that love of one’s nation is not grounds for hate of another nation or another group of humans. Actually, the wall makes sense for now. We can dream for that day when the walls and barriers won’t be needed, and that pre-born babies are allowed to cross the barriers of the womb. We pray for an end to all crimes against humanity; born and unborn.

Let’s pray for all our brothers and sisters, today and moving ahead. May we always be mindful that our good deeds and good intentions can always be attacked when we are not shielded by the reality of not being separated by the human concept of different races. We are all created by God as One Human Race. We’re not color blind. Let’s agree with MLK. It’s all about Agape Love. Let the healing begin.

African American Leaders Unite Around the Wall to Help Avoid Looming Crisis

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

Some claim that building a wall is “medieval solution” to a modern problem. The wheel is an ancient solution too. Nobody’s complaining about that. POTUS is on target. Walls do work; as in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah, walls are still viable solutions. Why now? Just days away are the March for Life and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday yet America is in crisis at the southern border.

As an African American voice for justice, a defender of the sanctity of life, and perhaps most importantly a Christian evangelist, I stand with President Trump as he labors to build a wall. From my perspective, compassion trumps terror. Our prayers are needed more than ever. We must rally around the wall to avert crisis.

Having survived and in many cases overcome tyranny, oppression and racism in America, we as African Americans are close to the heartbeat of justice and compassion. We are not color blind. Our hearts are touched by the plight of all children and their families; not just at the border, but here at home as well.

Children in the womb, in cribs, in school, in jail, with parents behind bars, on the streets, at our borders; many are in danger. We must have responsible compassion for them all.

My goddaughter, Angela Stanton King, co-founder of the American King Foundation writes: “The process of draining the swamp, is a process of seeking genuine true justice, jubilee, pardon, and forgiveness. We’re going to continue to discover that there are some very thin lines between right, wrong, justice, and injustice. Meanwhile, we live in a world where security is necessary. The Wall plan is viable.”

Rev. Bill and Dr. Deborah Owens, Founders of CAAP write: “Christians have a responsibility to help those in need, including the undocumented immigrants at our southern border. At the same time, we must also respect the need to secure our borders and ensure the safety of all U.S. citizens. The African-American community has been gravely injured by unfettered illegal immigration, which has resulted in loss of jobs, loss of housing, and other economic hardship.”

Collectively, we stand with President Trump in the battle for the soul of America. I’m praying that POTUS builds the wall in the manner that Ezra and Nehemiah did in days of old.”

As Commander and Chief of America, POTUS is fighting for the soul of our nation. In his address to the nation on January 8, 2019, President Donald J. Trump speaks to the people of America:

  • There is a growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border.
  • Customs and Border Patrol agents continue to encounter thousands of illegal immigrants at our southern border. 
  • Meanwhile, Americans are continually at risk from uncontrolled, illegal migration. 
  • This climate strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages for the American people as well as the legal immigrants who are here. 
  • Among those ethnic communities hardest hit are African Americans and Hispanic Americans.
  • Sadly, our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl.
  • As a result, every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone, 90 percent of which floods across from our southern border. 
  • If something isn’t done, and soon, more Americans could die from drugs this year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War.
  • Last month, 20,000 migrant children were illegally brought into the United States — a dramatic increase.  These children are used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs. 
  • One in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico.  Women and children are the biggest victims, by far, of our broken system.

“This is a humanitarian crisis — a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” he asserted.

Thankfully, the President is not alone in his efforts to serve the people of America as well as the immigrant families who are flooding our border. The president further appeals to the soul of the American people with a call to heart:

  • America works hard to welcome millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation.
  • In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.
  • This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border.  This is the cycle of human suffering that POTUS is determined to end.
  • We must fall to our knees and then rise and rally to the call.
  • The president’s proposal includes requests from Homeland Security for cutting-edge technology for detecting drugs, weapons, illegal contraband, and many other things. Also included in his proposal are requests for more agents, immigration judges, and bed space to process the sharp rise in unlawful migration fueled by our very strong economy.
  • The plan also contains an urgent request for humanitarian assistance and medical support.
  • There is also an urgent request that Congress will close border security loopholes so that illegal immigrant children can be safely and humanely returned back home.
  • In addition, as an overall approach to border security, law enforcement professionals have requested $5.7 billion for a physical barrier.  At the request of Democrats, it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall.
  • This barrier is absolutely critical to border security.  It’s also what our professionals at the border want and need.

Today, I join my colleagues in the faith in a cry for prayer and compassion as we face this present danger.

Speaking from a platform in support of diversity and compassion, Bruce LeVell, Executive Director of NDC Trump writes: “As a follower of Christ, my convictions are to set up processes to aid those subjected to evil. Meanwhile we must protect our citizens. Mr. President, build that wall!”

Bishop Leon Benjamin, Coalition of Leaders United makes an urgent appeal: “This is a Humanitarian Effort. A Crisis of the Soul and Heart! Time to Stop It and Keep America Safe! Secure Our Borders and Build the Wall!”

Day Gardner, Founder of National Black Prolife Union speaks in support: “President Trump is presenting brilliant and compassionate solutions to the crisis. I pray that the masses unite in prayer and action to avoid disaster.”

Rev. Dean Nelson, Chairman of the board for the Frederick Douglass Foundation agrees: “The proper role of our government is to protect its citizens before it doles out benefits to others. Securing our boarder is a necessity to protect American workers and crack down on Human trafficking.”

In conclusion, we urge all Americans to pray for a speedy reconciliation among our leaders for the sake of the children, and the soul of America.

Priests for Life and Silent No More to be represented at March for Life in Canada and Rome

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: May 8, 2018

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

Janet Morana, executive director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign (a joint project of Priests for Life and Anglicans for Life), will have a key role at the March for Life Canada on May 10 and the March for Life Rome on May 19.

“It’s such an honor to be asked to speak during the rallies at both marches,” Mrs. Morana said. “In Rome, I’ll be giving my speech in Italian!”

The march in Ottawa, Canada, is the 21st annual event organized by the Campaign Life Coalition. Abortion has been legal since 1969 in Canada and is funded by the country’s socialized health-care system.

Mrs. Morana will be joined by Angela Steenstra, National Coordinator for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in Canada, and 11 women and men who will share their testimonies of abortion regret.

At the March for Life in Rome, the crowds have continued to grow over the eight years it has taken place. In 1978, Italy legalized abortion through the first 90 days of pregnancy, or later in cases of life-endangering circumstances for the mother or child.

In her speech, Mrs. Morana will highlight the work of Rachel’s Vineyard, which is the world’s largest ministry for healing after abortion and operates under the Priests for Life umbrella. She will call on all pro-life people to take the testimonies of those who have been healed and have become “silent no more,” and spread them to others as a way of keeping people from abortion in the first place, and helping the wounded to find healing.

“Priests for Life has enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with the various pro-life efforts in Italy,” said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “We have had the joy of welcoming Virginia Coda Nunziante, who heads up the March for Life in Rome, to the March for Life in D.C., and we are grateful for this opportunity for Priests for Life and our many ministries to be a part of this important international pro-life event.”

NEW YORK — Evangelist Alveda King, full-time director of Civil Rights for the Unborn (the African-American Outreach of Priests for Life), will speak at a pro-life convention tomorrow on Long Island and will be a grand marshal for the International Gift of Life Walk Saturday in Manhattan.

The convention, called Bringing America Back to Life – New York, will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow at the Long Island Marriott in Uniondale. Ms. King is slated to speak at 4 p.m.

At the International Gift of Life Walk on Saturday, Ms. King will share grand marshal duties with Chris Slattery of Expectant Mother Care in Manhattan, and Timothy Jaccard of the AMT Children of Hope Foundation.

Participants will gather at 8 a.m. in Foley Square at Lafayette and Worth streets in lower Manhattan. At 9 a.m. the march will proceed from Foley Square to Stone Street and Broadway.

“We really do need to bring America back to life and I am especially happy to be able to proclaim that message in New York,” Ms. King said. “In New York City, African-American babies are more likely to be aborted than born and the state government has considered making assisted suicide legal. It’s my hope that everyone in New York who understands that life is sacred from conception to natural death will march with me.”

For information for both events, go to www.bringingamericabacktolifenewyork.org or call 631-487-7578.

#CovertheMarch

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

AbortionHurtsWomen

As we get used to expecting the unexpected, President Trump shines the spotlight on tomorrow’s March for Life in DC. At the top of his first 100 days, the “man of the hour” points out that the crowd may be bigger than reported because the media doesn’t give much air time to the annual event.

Every year for the last 43 years pro-life activists have convened on Washington to march for life in protest for all the babies being aborted in America and around the world. This yearly March for Life gathering occurs each January on or about the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, January 22, 1973. Ironically, I was born on January 22, 1951. So this “for such a time as this” Kairos Moment is personal for me in many ways, including my post abortive testimony.

During previous years, the March coverage has been sparse to say the least. Historically the coverage has been unfavorable, casting the participants in a less than significant light. Added to the slights is the tendency to underestimate the crowd size, the tens of thousands often gathering in inclement weather.

However, there is a dramatic shift of events this year. In a recent interview with ABC’s David Muir President Donald Trump was asked about last week’s Women’s March (which received a lot of media coverage). It’s important to note that participation of prolife women were shunned at that event.

It’s actually refreshing to have a president in office who supports the sanctity of life and is willing to speak the truth and call the media out for not doing the same.

From our vantage point, the pro-life movement is not asking the media to choose our side over another. We just want fair and balanced coverage, coverage of the truth.

I’m in DC for prayer services tonight and in the morning. Please join us, and you can also March actually, and virtually on live stream on EWTN! Finally, if you can’t be there, please pray for all who will be marching for LIFE!

I hope you will join me for this time of prayer as we prepare to march with hundreds of thousands of others to show our love for our unborn brothers and sisters. The defense of the unborn is in fact the civil rights movement of today and all we do in the pro-life movement must be sustained by prayer.

God bless you…

Mom and Daughter to Share Pain of Abortion Loss at March for Life Canada

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

SNMAC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 5, 2016

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

OTTAWA, Ontario — The day Allison Pollard learned about the abortion her mother had before giving birth to her, things started to make sense.

“I was 23 years old and the single mom of a 3-year-old daughter,” she recalled about the day 15 years ago when her mother, Anita Sonntag, told her and her younger sister about the abortion.

“We all cried. My sister and I hurt for our mother and we mourned our brother,” she said. “It’s hard to describe the feeling but it’s like we gained and lost a brother in the same sentence.”

Both mother and daughter will give their testimony at this year’s National March for Life Canada on May 12 at Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Angelina Steenstra, National Coordinator for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in Canada, said 13 women and men will speak about their abortion regret during a gathering at 2:45 p.m.

Last year, Allison stood with her mom, holding a sign that says “I Mourn My Aborted Sibling.” This year she will speak up for her brother.

Anita also remembers the day she told her daughters about their aborted brother, although she doesn’t know why she chose that exact moment to reveal the secret she kept buried for so long. She hadn’t been through healing yet, nor had her pro-life activism begun.

“I think at first they didn’t want to believe it,” Anita said of her daughters. “Then they came and hugged me. I think we were all crying.”

That day began a healing journey for both Allison and Anita. For Allison, things began to make sense.

“I wouldn’t say that I was always aware that I had an older brother but I did feel that I didn’t belong in the role of oldest sibling,” she said. “Someone was missing.”

Anita has been active as the Regional Coordinator for Saskatchewan for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign since 2008. In 2015, the campaign launched a new initiative called Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion, an effort to reach out to all the different groups of people impacted by an abortion. When Anita read some of the work of Dr. Philip Ney on sibling survivors that was included on the Shockwaves website, she discovered “it was like Allison’s life story.”

When Allison went to a Rachel’s Vineyard healing retreat at a site where Anita was on the team, both thought it would be best if Anita did not attend Allison’s sessions.

“Knowing she was in there, it was like, what did I do to this child of mine,” Anita said. And now that Allison is sharing her story in public, Anita said, “I thought it would bother me, because I’m responsible – the cause – of a lot of her pain. But it’s OK, I’m glad she’s doing it.”

Janet Morana and Georgette Forney, who co-founded the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in the U.S. in 2002, will be joining the March for Life gathering once again this year.

“Like the U.S., Canada has no limits on abortion,” Mrs. Steenstra said. “But unlike the U.S., the Canadian government pays for abortion. Through the Campaign, we hope to reach those who have not yet made the choice for abortion, to help them change their minds. And we also want to reach men and women, like us, who did make that choice and deeply regret it. Healing is available for everyone impacted by abortion.”

The Campaign began November 11, 2002. As of January 2016, the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has held 1,582 Gatherings in 17 countries & 48 states with 5,978 women and men sharing their abortion testimonies. Testimonies have also been shared at 117 high schools and universities in the last 5 years, 14 in 2015. There are 2,405 testimonies posted on the Campaign website, with 395 that are shared via video! Currently there are 17,049 people registered with the Campaign representing 77 countries.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website: www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org

Kansas Court Decision and the March for Life – More Steps to Take Says Fr. Frank Pavone

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today that the Kansas Court of Appeals’ seven-to-seven vote on the Kansas law protecting babies from dismemberment abortion will add an extra urgency to today’s March for Life.

“The Kansas court’s tie vote on a law that states unborn babies cannot be killed by having their arms, legs, and heads torn from their bodies means that a lower court judge’s radical ruling still stands,” said Fr. Pavone. “But the decision is also a reminder to the hundreds of thousands marching for life in Washington, D.C. today that while we have come a long way, we have many more steps to take and prayers to pray to protect our brothers and sisters in the womb.”

The Kansas Court of Appeals, in a rare tie decision issued by the full court this morning, let stand a judge’s decision that held that the Kansas Constitution contains a right to abortion that’s independent from any created by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade. The case is almost certain to be appealed to the state Supreme Court.

“As the court was announcing its ruling this morning, I was honoring Kansas Governor Sam Brownback at an interdenominational Constitution Hall ceremony for signing the first-in-the-nation anti-dismemberment bill into law,” added Fr. Pavone. “These simultaneous events illustrate that the battle for the unborn child’s civil rights will go back and forth for now. We know, however, that the truth of that child’s humanity will ultimately triumph over the lies of the abortion industry

Gov. Brownback and all Kansans to be Honored with National Pro-Life Award at Jan. 22 Service

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback — and the people of Kansas and their legislators — will be honored with the National Pro-Life Recognition Award at the 22nd annual National Memorial for the Pre-born and Their Brothers and Sisters, to take place from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 22 at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, said: “Each year, this award is given to someone who has served the unborn in a profound and exemplary way. In 2015, Gov. Brownback signed a law, the first in the nation, to protect children from dismemberment abortion. We have supported and spoken about the need for this kind of measure for many years, and the governor’s commitment to protecting preborn children from the pain of dismemberment abortion led all of us in the pro-life movement to recommit ourselves to helping pass this law in many more states across the nation.”

Gov. Brownback will attend the National Memorial to accept the award.

Soon after Gov. Brownback signed the bill, a county judge in Kansas blocked enforcement and father and daughter abortionists filed a lawsuit against it. The Kansas Court of Appeals has yet to render a decision.

“We pray this law will be enacted, and that the nation follows Kansas’s lead in protecting the unborn,” Father Pavone said.

Organizations that are co-sponsoring the National Memorial with the National Pro-Life Religious Council and Priests for Life include: American Values, Jubilee Campaign Law of Life Project, Life Issues Institute, Americans United for Life, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), Alliance Defending Freedom and Catholics Called to Witness.

Serving on the Host Committee are: Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council; Gary Bauer, President, American Values; Archbishop Craig W. Bates, Patriarch of the International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church; Ernie Ohlhoff, National Right to Life Committee; Alveda King, Director of African-American Outreach, Priests for Life; Bradley Mattes, President and CEO, Life Issues Institute; Charmaine Yoest, Ph. D., President and CEO, Americans United for Life; Alan Sears, President, CEO, and General Counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom; Dick and Sherley Bott, Bott Radio Network, and Rich Bott, President and CEO, Bott Radio Network.

The National Memorial for the Pre-born is an interdenominational prayer service. It will be preceded by a Catholic Mass at 7:30 a.m. in Constitution Hall. Large groups can be easily accommodated in the venue, and no tickets or reservations are required. The event will take place regardless of the weather.

Constitution Hall is at 1776 D Street NW, at 17th Street. For more information about the National Memorial, go to www.NationalPrayerService.com
