- To publicly adhere to and immediately enforce the principle stated in Catholics in Political Life, which says, “The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles.

SEPTEMBER 12 — A tearful young woman and her mother exited Planned Parenthood holding a printout of the ultrasound picture of her baby. Mary, a sidewalk counselor, spoke to her; the woman responded, “I’m due in February. I didn’t do it (abort the baby).” (#28) Eleanor came across the street and, after a brief exchange, they went off to Pregnancy Help.
AUGUST 18 — Baby saved (#27) at Planned Parenthood today (Friday)! Thanks to Jane, Theresa, and John who were there. The young pregnant woman affirmed to Theresa that she is definitely going to keep her baby!
AUGUST 13: FOUR MORE CHILDREN SAVED FROM ABORTION! The latest (#26) was at Harvard Street (Women’s Health) on Wednesday, August 9. Howard, a sidewalk counselor, spoke to a mother and daughter as they drove out of the lot. Unprompted, the mother said, “She changed her mind!”
THE OTHER THREE were on Saturday, August 5, also at WHS — a couple exited early and confirmed a changed mind — and Friday, August 4 at Planned Parenthood, which ultrasound revealed to be twins. Thanks be to God and to all who pray and work for Life!
JULY 10 — Baby #22 was saved on Saturday, July 8 at Women’s Health Services in Brookline. Jean (on left in background, with white dress) talked to a couple, who agreed to accompany her to Dunkin’ Donuts. Eleanor joined the conversation by phone, and this week they have an appointment at a crisis pregnancy center for an ultrasound and follow-up. Steve (foreground) was also at WHS that day.
Trump’s Warsaw speech: is he right?
by Pat Buchanan
The crucial question is not whether Trump is alone, but whether he is right. Has Trump read the crisis of the West correctly? Are his warnings valid? Is not the Obama-Merkel vision of a New World Order a utopian fantasy?
At the monument to the patriots of the Warsaw Uprising, Trump cited Poland as exemplar of how a great people behaves in a true national crisis.
When the Polish Pope, John Paul II, celebrated his first Mass in Victory Square in 1979, said Trump, “a million Polish men, women and children raised their voices in a single prayer. … ‘We want God.’ … Every Communist in Warsaw must have known that their oppressive system would soon come crashing down.” And so it did.
The crisis of the West today, said Trump, is akin to what Poland faced. For it is about the survival of a civilization, rooted in Christianity, that has made the greatest of all contributions to the ascent of man.
Trump professed confidence in the West’s will to survive. But whether the West still has the character seems an open question.
Christianity is more of a dying than a thriving faith on the Old Continent. And as the churches empty out, the mosques are going up. Before our eyes, the West is being remade.

Fathers and sons, praying during 40 Days for Life, which wrapped up on Passion Sunday, April 9.
MARCH 29 — ABOVE: Mary, Eleanor, and Ed speaking to a couple who exited Planned Parenthood
Wednesday morning. The woman accepted a baby blanket from Mary and pro-life contact information. No
abortion today, but she was still unresolved: “I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
Pray for them! We’re counting this as NUMBER 9, despite the possibility of a reversion
NUMBER 8: Earlier that same morning, Eleanor spoke
with a couple walking toward Planned Parenthood.
“Where are you headed?”
“Oh, not good. They do abortions.”
The man also did not want the abortion but the woman was
insistent. So, they went in.
Eleanor spoke with Mary and they decided to pray a Divine Mercy
Chaplet. Ten minutes later: the couple came out! “We didn’t do it!” The formerly insistent
woman now had a big smile and look of relief.
A mock abortion of Christ to celebrate “Women’s Day”
Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and
ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. ...The dragon stood in front of the woman
who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. [Rev. 12:3-4]
also shows what is at the foundation of the hard-core pro-abortion people. They hate
the church, and they literally want to abort Jesus off the face of the earth in
every manifestation of his presence today.” — Father Frank Pavone
Feminists in pink masks pretended to commit an abortion on a
woman dressed as the Virgin Mary outside of a northern Argentina cathedral as part of an
International Women’s Day protest earlier this month.
A photo of the protest shows what looks like blood and
body parts gushing from between the Virgin Mary’s legs, facilitated by the pink
mask-wearing feminists. The woman dressed as the Virgin Mary holds a fist in the
air. She appears to be smiling and wearing a rosary around her neck.

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

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.

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.

Check out this revealing portrait of late-term abortionist Warren Hern and his Boulder Abortion Clinic from Esquire. It's a wonder it made it to print and that it is still online!

only anti-Christ but anti-human as well.” —
