National Right to Life estimates almost 900,000 unborn babes were aborted in 2020, based on research by the Guttmacher Institute. While abortion rates have dropped steadily since the 1990s, abortion is still the leading cause of death in America. With an estimated 886,677 babies dying in abortions and 45,222 dying in gun deaths, abortions are 19.6 times more deadly.
Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, National Right to Life estimates 63,459,781 abortions have been done in America.
These abortions did not destroy “pregnancies” or blobs of tissue or clumps of cells. They destroyed unique, living human beings – unborn babies with their own separate DNA and almost certainly a beating heart. This is basic biology, and even some abortionists admit that abortions kill human beings.
Whether from guns or abortion or another cause, every death marks the end of a unique, valuable human life that can never be replaced. And how much more tragic deaths are when they are preventable. https://www.lifenews.com/2022/02/25/abortions-kill-20-times-more-people-than-guns/
EMAIL REGARDING KEEP MISSOURI PRO LIFE EVENT
Subject: Keep Missouri Pro-Life!
Date: Jul 27, 2023 at 3:39 PM
Cardinal Burke & Jim Caviezel, Thursday 7 September in St. Charles. Details below.
Subject: Keep Missouri Pro-Life!
This year’s “Keep Missouri Pro-Life” is the most important event in Missouri Right to Life history as we seek to raise the money to defend our constitution.
A pro-abortion group is seeking to place an initiative petition on the November 2024 Missouri ballot that would enshrine within it an unlimited right to abortion. If they are successful, as they have been in other states, abortions in Missouri will be allowed for the full nine months of pregnancy on girls of any age without parental consent, with taxpayer money, and absolutely no restrictions. This initiative wouldn’t even require that abortions be performed by medical personnel. It will allow abortion access for child abusers, sex traffickers and rapists. It is the most extreme anti-life measure ever proposed in our nation and would nullify most if not all of the 52 pro-life protections for babies and their mothers that we’ve worked so hard to pass.
Missouri Right to Life has been preparing for this possibility for over a year as we’ve watched and learned from this battle in other states. We are working with pro-life groups around the state and with expert national consultants to make sure that unborn children in Missouri continue to be protected.
Our dinner this year is going to be a blockbuster with keynote speaker Jim Caviezel and Champion of Life Award recipient Cardinal Raymond Burke. Registrations are pouring in, and we’ve already surpassed the number that attended last year’s dinner.
Please consider joining us for this event by registering on line at https://www.easternregionmrl.org/dinner or by using the invitation attached below.
If you’ve already reserved your tickets, please forward this message to your contacts.
Missouri was the first abortion free state in the country after the overturning of Roe v. Wade in 2022. We cannot allow our constitution to be sold to the dark money from George Soros. The Missouri Constitution is not for sale. Missouri children are not for sale.
And, as Jim Caviezel says in promoting his excellent movie The Sound of Freedom, “God’s children are not for sale.”
Please pray for the success of this event and for all of our efforts to keep Missouri pro-life!
Did the Archdiocese of St. Louis have a written policy about the Covid vaccination? They absolutely did NOT ever put their policy in writing. In the time of the crisis, you would think you would want CLARITY by simply stating your position. St. Cosmas and Damian, patrons of surgeons, doctors and pharmacists, pray for us!
Asking a question is always permissible. Dialogue is the answer. Ask our Archdiocesan leaders the tough questions. Their emails are listed below. The new vicars are hiring staff, yet they won’t allow any average lay person to ask questions about what this staff will actually be doing to help evangelize the faith? How can they…
VIDEO: Where is the accompaniment, the dialogue and the synodal process for the laity here in the Archdiocese of St. Louis right now or during the entire All Things New process???
People are seeking the truth. We are built for Truth. We all have an internal radar when there is a lack of honesty. When the Archdiocesan leaders refuse to have a dialogue at all about the closures and changes happening now, then you know they don’t want to be up front and honest about their…
