Defund Planned Parenthood Battle Continues
SATURDAY, MARCH 4: While abortion fanatics gathered on Boston Common Saturday morning,
pro-lifers were at Planned Parenthood’s abortion facility (ABOVE), continuing their
observance of 40 Days for Life.
A Channel 5 crew came to Planned Parenthood Saturday, and Ruth, one of our sidewalk counselors,
was interviewed, which was aired.
Judy, a sidewalk counselor, offers pro-life information to a passer-by.
Mayor Marty Walsh, Joe Kennedy III, and several other of the usual suspects gathered on
the Boston Common Saturday, with a crowd of a few hundred, to demand your money
to pay for abortions.

Jim Lyons weighs in on Baker’s proposed state funding of Planned Parenthood
State Rep. Jim Lyons (R-Andover), shown here with his wife, Bernadette, a sidewalk counselor,
a column that appeared in the Sunday, March 5 Boston Herald. Here is the text:
As the nation’s leading abortion proponent and provider, Planned Parenthood benefits greatly
from the media-friendly phrase “pro-choice.” Of course, the phrase “pro-choice.” has
become little more than a market-tested euphemism for the widespread availability of abortion.
Obviously, Planned Parenthood has a range of offerings that extend beyond abortion. Yet,
its extreme advocacy of abortion makes the private organization unacceptable to countless
taxpaying Americans. In fact, Planned Parenthood has gone so far as to come under media scrutiny
and government investigation for the repulsive activity of negotiating to sell the body parts of unborn babies.
No wonder so many taxpayers rebel at the idea of paying for Planned Parenthood.
When it comes to taxpayer choice, however, Planned Parenthood flips completely. Taxpayers deserve no
choices, no reprieve from the forced funding of an organization whose most egregious procedure many
regard as ill-advised, repugnant, and the taking of a human life.
In a rare example of Washington wisdom, the politicians on Capitol Hill are planning to
end public funding of Planned Parenthood, granting taxpayers the choice of deciding whether
they wish to add their voluntary contributions. Those who choose to do so will remain at complete
liberty to contribute as much as they desire; persons who object will no longer be mandated to
subsidize any of its operations. One might think of it as the Taxpayer Liberation Act. What could be
Apparently, Beacon Hill politicians, joined by their Planned Parenthood sponsors, oppose
granting this choice to taxpayers. Seemingly, the only choice that matters belongs
to a well-funded Planned Parenthood, so long as taxpayers pick up the tab.
And Planned Parenthood in Massachusetts is certainly not lacking in means. It rewards its president with a salary exceeding $287,000. Its top five executives tally well in excess of six figures and more than double the Massachusetts median household income of around $70,000. The vast majority of taxpayers will never see an annual salary approaching those figures.
Unfortunately, Gov. Charlie Baker has joined with many Democrats in promising to force state taxpayers to pony up for any slackening in federal largess for Planned Parenthood. They are punting an opportunity to demonstrate the meaning of choice. In this case, all persons should retain the right to choose whether or not to pay for Planned Parenthood.
JANUARY 7 — One of the Beautiful People stopped today to yell and curse at
the assembled pro-lifers. Nothing original, of course. The usual litany of vitriol and
illogic that issues from the Left in our various public forums these days.
Although they knew God
they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in
their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.
Claiming to be wise, they became fools.
. . . And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct.
They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. — Romans 1
DECEMBER 14: NUMBER 33 — Bill was at Women’s Health Services in Brookline Tuesday, December 13, with
Mary Anne and Sean. A couple exited the facility in less than an hour — not
enough time for an abortion — and the woman confirmed that she had changed her mind.
LGBT cancer in the federal bureaucracy
by Austin Ruse
As Donald Trump begins to staff his administration, his appointees
should understand how deeply the ideologically-driven LGBTs have burrowed
into permanent jobs in the permanent bureaucracy and how dangerous they are.
The new political appointees should also understand how this group and
their allies have driven those who may disagree with their agenda either
underground or from the federal bureaucracy altogether, and some even to jail.
And they should understand that this group is entrenched and determined
not to give an inch in the territory they have gained under the incredibly
radical Obama administration.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30: Mary and Eleanor, one day after baby #32 was saved, after numerous conversations and prolonged waiting. The
couple finally did accompany Eleanor to Pregnancy Help. The ultrasound revealed a 20-week-old baby girl. Among
Wednesday’s features were roses, courtesy of Frank, one of our intercessors.
NOVEMBER 22 — A baby was saved from abortion Saturday,
November 19 (#31) at Women’s Health. The
mother confirmed it in her conversation with Jean, a sidewalk counselor.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD, NOVEMBER 12: two college coeds stopped to interview us, part of a course assignment.
Planned Parenthood talking points formed the premise of most of the questions. E.g.,
the “abortions are only 3% of their procedures” canard. LiveAction
excellent rebuttal — including a 4-minute video — of the 3 per cent myth.
Speaking of Planned Parenthood . . .
WEDNESDAY, NOV 16 — Shawn Carney of 40 Days for Life reported:
Planned Parenthood is in a bad mood.
On election day, Planned Parenthood was a picture of supreme confidence, having spent tens of millions of dollars backing pro-abortion candidates.
Then Americans voted.
The abortion chain’s CEO, Cecile Richards, sent out an email the morning after their dismal failure, starting with the words:
“Devastated. Angry. Heartbroken.
Outraged. Shocked. Sad. Disgusted. Ashamed. Discouraged. Exhausted. Shattered.”
She followed with more of the usual abortion rhetoric, but her next comment really got my attention:
have seen what our opposition is capable of and the consequences are inconceivable.”
Snowflakes in meltdown at Boston College

Catholic campus mourns defeat of the Abortion Queen
Thick gray clouds loomed over Boston College Wednesday morning as students walked
to class. Some students stopped to hug friends and exchange brief words of empathy and
support, but most walked in silence. The somber mood on campus followed the
announcement early Wednesday morning that Republican nominee Donald J. Trump
won the 2016 presidential election.
Following the announcement, several professors cancelled classes. Many more students didn’t
attend classes on Wednesday. Professors who did hold class invited students to engage in
conversation about the election rather than discuss the day’s material.
Most of these conversations elicited tears of disappointment, fear, and concern.

When Walls are More Merciful Than Bridges
by William Kilpatrick
From one perspective, Church leaders who endorse and support the settlement of Muslims in
the West are simply obeying the injunctions to welcome the stranger and shelter the homeless.
From another perspective, they, like the citizens of Troy, are opening the gates to a mortal enemy.
According to an African proverb, one shouldn’t tear down a fence until he knows
why it was put up. Until we have a better handle on the nature and purpose of today’s
vast Muslim resettlement, it might not be wise to tear down all the walls.

3 Million illegal alien votes?
Did 3 million illegal immigrants vote in the 2016 election as Gregg Phillips of VoteStand
claims? The stunning allegation was made earlier this week and has begun to go viral all
over Facebook and Twitter.
Republicans and conservatives have jumped on the claim and started to allege it
is possible that Donald Trump’s popular vote count may be higher than
Hillary Clinton’s votes assuming the alleged votes by undocumented illegal
aliens were filtered out.
The drama over 3 million illegal aliens voting started on November 10
when Philips tweeted out that VoteStand’s “best estimates suggest more than
2 million illegals voted on Tuesday. Mechanisms must be deployed to stop illegals
from voting.” Within several days, Phillips claimed that their system had “verified
more than three million votes cast by non-citizens.”

The Dynamic Duo of Evelyn and Judy (ABOVE, at Planned Parenthood on Saturday, November 5) were
instrumental in saving a baby (maybe two!) from abortion.
One young woman, accompanied by a young man, was crying as she
entered the abortion facility. She was not receptive to Judy and Evelyn’s offers
of help. A while later she exited, still in tears and still rejecting the pro-lifers. She
was not inside long enough for an abortion, fortunately, but the tears suggest that
she was probably still pondering that decision.
Another woman came out and told Evelyn, “I didn’t do
it!” (Number 30.)

adjacent to Planned Parenthood.
TUESDAY, SEPT 27 — The new building (ABOVE) at 1047 Commonwealth Ave. — adjacent
to Planned Parenthood, separated
by an alley — just opened a few weeks ago and houses BU students.
While this is an unfortunate juxtaposition, it is also an opportunity for pro-lifers.
Mary (BELOW) is one pro-lifer who is taking advantage of it, assisted by
Frank’s signs (ABOVE) and her formidable inventory of pro-life literature and rosaries.

Axis of Evil IV by Ray Neary (Renew America) — Planned Parenthood is the perfect example of a living lie. The organization derives millions of dollars annually, not from planning parenthood, but by assisting a mother to de-parent and doing the same to the father of a new member of our human family.
