40 Days For Life image



Major Milestone
During this previous 16th Campaign of the International 40 Days for life, the 10,000th  baby was spared from abortion.  40 Days closed with a total of 10,192  babies saved since 2007. Because of you and your commitment, Chester County has been a part of all 16 campaigns.

The students from Regina Luminis Academy and Bishop Shanahan High School  came to Planned Parenthood on March 25th to commemorate the Feast of the Annunciation.  They brought much attention to the conception of Jesus and a reminder that at that very moment Jesus began His redemptive journey for our salvation.

Please continue your vigils in front of Planned Parenthood, praying that all mothers will receive the grace to welcome their babies no matter the circumstances of their children’s  conceptions.

Thank you for your continually support of the unborn and their families.

Presented by Trent Horn, an apologist with Catholic Answers.  There will be two presentations:

Youth   1:30 pm                     Adults  4:00 pm

In these talks Trent shows audiences how to defend Catholic teaching on three tough issues, abortion, same-sex “marriage,” and contraception.  Trent will give you the tools you need to make a powerful, non-religious case against redefining marriage that would include same-sex couples.  Most importantly, you’ll learn how to charitably answer the objections of those who disagree with you and be able to explain why the Church’s positions on marriage, abortion and contraception are reasonable and compassionate.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Projection Act is the major legislative goal for the pro-life movement in Congress. Under Roe, a complete abortion ban is not possible until the Supreme Court’s makeup is changed by electing a new pro-life president.

Therefore, the pro-life bill, which bans abortions after 20 weeks based on scientific evidence that unborn babies feel in tense pain at least at 20 weeks, if not earlier, would prohibit abortions nationwide after that time.

The good news for the pro-life movement is that every single potential Republican presidential candidate has endorsed the legislation — with pro-life Gov. Chris Cristie and pro-life doctor Ben Carson having joined other possible candidates in endorsing the measure.

“I’m encouraged to report that the Republican field is now unified: both Dr. Ben Carson and Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) have joined the list of possible candidates to publicly support this pro-life bill,” says Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List. “Both men called on Congress to move swiftly to advance the federal legislation which has been delayed since January. This nationwide law would save an estimated 15,000-18,000 children a year.”

Dannenfelser said the legislation, the brainchild of the National Right to Life Committee, would have a tremendous pro-life effect. Although, if approved in Congress, the bill would be vetoed by pro-abortion President Barack Obama, that would set the stage for the 2016 campaign — where any of the pro-life presidential candidates would likely take on pro-abortion Hillary Clinton.

“The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is compassionate legislation that would protect babies from brutal abortions after 20 weeks, or five months of pregnancy. If enacted into law, it would save approximately 15,000 babies every year from brutal, painful deaths,” she said. “This common-sense proposal is supported by a majority of Americans, most especially among women. It is changing hearts and minds as we work to protect ALL unborn children and their mothers from the horrors of abortion.”
