Join Us for Our First “Face the Truth” Day of 2014 on the South Side of Chicago

by John Jansen (March 26, 2014 at 3:57 pm)

The winter of 2013-2014 was brutal. But spring is here and the streets are finally clear of snow, just in time for the Pro-Life Action League’s first “Face the Truth” Day of 2014.

For our first site, we’ll be holding signs showing the victims of abortion at one of our favorite sites on Chicago’s South Side: the high-traffic intersection of Cermak Road and Ashland Avenue in the Pilsen neighborhood, which we visited most recently in 2011.

Our second site is one we’re doing for the first time ever: 31st Street and Wentworth Avenue in the Armour Square neighborhood.  This intersection is right off the Dan Ryan Expressway, where our signs will be seen by thousands making their way to the White Sox day game at US Cellular Field, just a few blocks away.

The details are listed below and on the Facebook event page.  Join us!

South Side of Chicago “Face the Truth Day”: Wednesday, April 2

9:30am – 11:00am: Pilsen

Cautious Optimism in the Wake of Today’s Hobby Lobby Hearing

by Matt Yonke (March 25, 2014 at 4:03 pm)

Quick TakeToday the Supreme Court heard the Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius cases, which challenge President Obama’s HHS Contraceptive Mandate. You can read the transcript of today’s hearing here [PDF].

These cases stand to overturn the Mandate with decisions in favor of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga.

Supporters of religious freedom rallied outside the Supreme Court, and our own executive director Eric Scheidler spoke at the rally along with such notables as Senator Ted Cruz and Live Action’s Lila Rose.

Reports coming out in the wake of this morning’s hearing point to cautious optimism for a Hobby Lobby victory. LifeNews.com reports several sources predicting a Hobby Lobby victory, and an article by Ian Millhiser on the liberal news site ThinkProgress.org reported similar sentiments. [Continue reading ...]

Novena to Reverse HHS Mandate: Day 6

Father, You unite the human family
through the blood of Your Son Jesus Christ
and the gift of the Holy Spirit.

At this time of need,
when Your Church and all Your people
are called to stand firm against injustices
inflicted on us from our government,
we ask You to strengthen us in the bond of unity.

Strengthen the unity of Your Church,
that none of Your faithful may be on the sidelines,
but that everyone may be active in this battle.

Give Church leaders the grace to discern
the many varieties of the working of Your Spirit
that they may fan into flame the gifts that the Spirit
bestows freely on Your people.

And give us the wisdom to know
that no group has a monopoly on the defense of life and freedom.
May we work in an ecumenical and inter-religious spirit
and welcome the efforts of all people of good will
who believe in freedom of religion and conscience.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

“Do Not Say, ‘I Am Too Young’”: Pro-Life Teens Making National News

by John Jansen (March 21, 2014 at 3:37 pm)

When 16-year old Thrin Short joined Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust for a peaceful campus outreach at the University of California-Santa Barbara earlier this month, she didn’t expect to be assaulted—by a professor—after the professor incited two students to steal one of the group’s signs showing a photo of an abortion victim.

But that’s exactly what happened (language warning):

It didn’t take long before this story became national news.

Last week, Thrin and her older sister Joan appeared on Fox News to talk about the incident, and Thrin knocked it out of the park with this quote:

I’m sorry if these signs offended her in any way but, after all, she does…show porn to her students so she’s not really the one to talk about offending images …. The pictures, yes, show violence after it happened, but what is so much worse than the pictures is the violence itself. And if we have to show what is happening out there to stop it then we have to go there and show it.

Day 5: Interfaith Novena to Stop the HHS Mandate

by Matt Yonke (March 21, 2014 at 10:00 am)

PrayerFive days to go before the Supreme Court hears the Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius cases. Your prayers are needed now more than ever!

Let’s all join together today in praying Day 5 of the Novena to Reverse the HHS Mandate.

Novena to Reverse HHS Mandate: Day 5

Lord God,
You are Light, and in You there is no darkness.
You sent Your Son Jesus Christ
as the Light of the World,
and You sent Your Holy Spirit
to enlighten the hearts and minds of all.

Lord, we pray today
that we may always experience
the light of Your truth,
informing our conscience
of what is right and what is wrong.

We pray that this light
will reach all of our fellow citizens,
that they may recognize the dangers of evil
which are often hidden along their path.

Open the eyes and minds of all
to the threats that currently exist
to our religious freedom,
to the health and well-being of women,
and to the good of our nation.

Give us the grace not only to recognize evil,
but also to reject it with the unwavering strength
that comes from you.

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
