Abortion by video? Abortion Drugs via Internet or a Phone App?

Planned Parenthood has revealed to the PA Department of Health in a recent inspection that they are adding “telemedication abortion” – sometimes called “webcam abortions” – an unsafe practice that puts profits before patients. Language was added by the PA State House to a Senate Bill that would effectively ban its practice – but we need your State Senator to vote in favor of this bill with the language already passed by the House. It’s a critical vote that could come later this month on whether to concur (agree) on the amended bill.

Senate Bill 857 would expand telemedicine in Pennsylvania and it has been amended by the State House to ban telemed abortions by including limitations language that requires a doctor to administer in-person any of the drugs listed by the FDA Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS), which includes the abortion drug Mifeprex.

To my State Senator: No Abortions by Video in PA!
Protect Life! Pass Senate Bill 857 as amended and ban telemed abortions.

Please urge your state Senator to vote YES on Senate Bill 21, the Down Syndrome Abortion Bill!

Please urge your state Senator to vote YES on Senate Bill 21, the Down Syndrome Abortion Bill. It is expected to come up for discussion and possible vote when the Senate returns this coming week.

It would prohibit an abortion that is based solely on the diagnosis of Down syndrome with the unborn baby.  

This is an important pro-life bill that we are supporting in the PA legislature and is one of a number of important bills that are coming up next week that we will be asking you to take action upon.

Please Urge Your State Representative to Vote “YES” on the Bill Designed to Help Students in Harrisburg

Please contact your State Representative immediately and ask them to support Rep. Mike Turzai’s House Bill 1800, which will bring school choice to students in the struggling Harrisburg School District.

Test scores for the students in the district have been among the lowest in Pennsylvania for years. And for the second time in a decade, the school has been put in state receivership.

HB 1800 will provide a life-line to those students today by allowing them to receive a tuition grant scholarship for about $8,200 to attend the school of their choice—public or private!

It would also be a great help for any Catholic school receiving transfers. The extra money would help keep tuition and other costs down for current students.

Pro-Life Union Establishes “Newby Saturday” on Saturday, November 9, 2019

Imagine a woman walking in front of you to enter an abortion clinic. The look on her face says it all—one of melancholy as if she’s defeated and hopeless, or has come to the conclusion that abortion is her only way to pursue personal and/or professional dreams.

What would you say if you only had 5-10 seconds to ask this woman to give her unborn child a chance at a happy and healthy life? How would you let her know that helpful services truly exist? That she can be a mom AND succeed in her personal and professional goals?

Your presence and voice can be life-changing. That’s why the Pro-Life Union established “Newby Saturday” to help first-time, or fairly newer witnesses, become effective in their approach to help women choose life for their unborn baby!

DATE: Saturday, November 9

TIME: from 10:00am-12:00pm

LOCATION: Outside Planned Parenthood at 12th & Locust Streets in Philadelphia*

*Fact: There were 4,231 unborn lives lost at this particular Planned Parenthood location in 2018.

HOW NEWBY SATURDAY WORKS: “Newby Saturdays” are designed to answer the following questions for a first-time or newer witness:

  • Is there a brochure I can hand to women?
  • Do I have to/can I talk to anyone?
  • Where can I stand?
  • What are the yellow vested ‘escorts’ doing?
  • Is there anything I should or shouldn’t do?
  • Some people are praying the rosary, but I don’t do that; what else can I do?
  • Is everybody going inside the building getting an abortion?
  • Is there a way to tell if a woman has arrived for an abortion?
  • What are those brown bags women are carrying out?

OTHER DETAILS: We’ll have a seasoned person there: Tom Stevens (Pro-Life Union President and CEO), Patrick Stanton (Pro-Life Union Board Member; Leader of Philadelphia 40 Days for Life), Dr. Monique Ruberu (Pro-Life Union Board Member; Leader of Philadelphia 40 Days for Life), or another designee to help answer common questions about Sidewalk Servants.

QUESTIONS? Call our office at 215-885-8150 the Friday before “Newby Saturday” to find out who will be there, or if you have other questions.

SPREAD THE WORD: Click here to view our Facebook event and share it with friends and family on social media.

Continue to pray for the unborn and the vulnerable. Your prayers and compassionate outreach can save lives and restore faith in the lives of others.

Please support the Fetal Remains Bill

Please contact your state Representative as soon as possible and ask him or her to support the Fetal Remains Bill proposed by PA Rep. Frank Ryan. 

It is substantially similar to legislation in Indiana that was recently declared constitutional by the United States Supreme Court. The legislation provides for the respectful internment of the remains of a child who dies prior to birth. The bill has prompted opposition from Democrats in Harrisburg. All Democrats in the PA House Health Committee voted against it. All Republicans–who are in the majority–supported it and the bill passed through the committee.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches, “bodies of the dead must be treated with respect and charity, in faith and hope of the Resurrection. The burial of the dead is a corporal work of mercy, it honors the children of God who are temples of the Holy Spirit.”
