August 26, 2014 – National Day of Rememberance for Aborted Babies – Monica Miller, Eric Scheidler & Gary Anderson

Millions of our American children have been legally murdered in their mother’s wombs to satisfy a disordered craving for immoral sexual activity. Most of their bodies were flushed into urban sewage systems; their remains known but to God. But a precious few–their bodies rescued from dumpsters and garbage bags–have been dignified by burial in hallowed ground at sites scattered around our country.

Today, we call attention to these unwanted children who never nestled in their father’s arms or suckled at their mother’s breasts. Instead, they have been sacrificed on the alter of convenience, accommodated by the professions of medicine, law, and religion.

Our Guests today are Monica Miller (Citizens for a Pro-Life Society), Eric Scheidler ( Executive Director of Prolife Action League) and Gary Anderson (Culture of Life Director for Ohio Knights of Columbus).
Monica has rummaged through hundreds of dumpsters and buried the human remains of thousands of aborted children. She is the author of Abandoned, The Untold Story of the Abortion Wars.
Eric is a second generation activist leader of abortion mill presence, sidewalk-counseling, and a multitude of activities aimed at protecting women and children from the abortion scourge.
Gary represents the Knights of Columbus, an organization that has steadfastly supported pro-life for decades by providing free ultrasound machines to pregnancy support centers, and establishing a network of shrines that honor our aborted children.

August 20, 2013 – Dr. Mary Davenport

The triennial meeting of the MWIA, Medical Women’s International Association, an organization started in 1919, was held three weeks ago in Seoul, Korea. Three AAPLOG (America Assn of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists) women were scheduled presenters. Drs Donna Harrison, Mary Davenport, both ObGyns, and Dr. Martha Shuping, a psychiatrist flew to Seoul for the meeting, but at the last moment, they were informed their sessions would be cancelled. Why? Their presentations were cancelled because they did not support the pro-abortion ideology of the meeting’s organizers.

What happened next was quite astonishing. Be sure to listen–at radio maria.us –as Dr Mary will be our Guest on “The Quest for a Culture of Life in America” Tuesday at Noon ET.

She will describe her personal conversions to NFP-Only, Natural Procreative Technology, and the the Roman Catholic faith. She is the immediate past president of AAPLOG and can tell us about that organization.

But, we mainly want to hear how the Holy Spirit orchestrated the banning of their presentations to a small group of MWIA attendees so that their message could be heard all over the world. Lesson #1: The Holy Spirit will take the ball and run with it if allowed in the game. So, do your part–listen to that small voice encouraging you to do something that will advance the Culture of Life.

Just do it; the Holy Spirit will do most of the actual work!

Mary will synopsize the three presentations; all addressed the harm caused to women by abortion:
Donna Harrison’s presentation demonstrated that nations with laws protective of mothers and unborn babies have excellent maternal mortality statistics. Ireland is a classic example
Mary Davenport had a talk about abortion as a risk factor for pre-term birth, the cause of 15 million neonatal deaths each year internationally. Mary travels extensively to gather data and present the facts of abortions harm.
Martha Shuping had a presentation that included two case reports of women who suffered severe psychological harm from abortion, even though they had obvious risk factors that were not discussed in the informed consent process.

July 16, 2013 – Kevin Burke

The abortion debate and focus is typically on the baby and mother. But what about fathers of children who mom wants to abort? They may be encouraging the abortion, discouraging, or neutral. And how do they feel after the dastardly deed?

Kevin Burke is Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life focused on ministry to fathers. This is what he says about what he does:
One of the saddest correspondences or phone calls I deal with, is a father who is devastated because his partner, girlfriend, fiancĆ© or wife had an abortion…without ever telling him about the procedure…until it is too late. It is heart breaking, and with what we know about how this impacts men, its also a really serious mental health and spiritual crisis that requires immediate help if the man is open to that. I wanted to share how I respond to these situations. Each one is unique so there is no set formula. You are just trying with the Lord’s help, to reach out and connect man to man (woman to man) with his heart and soul and keep the momentum of reaching out for help…to keep that momentum moving forward. Isolation with this kind of pain, is very bad.

July 5, 2013 – Joe Pojman

Joe Pojman of Texas Alliance for Life who was in the gallery in the Texas senate chambers this week when the pro-aborts staged a mob scene to prevent an anti-abortion bill from passing. Joe will talk about what it was like being there and what is happening now in Texas to get the legislation passed.

July 02, 2013

Are abortion, contraception, and “same-sex marriage” the irreversible result of inevitable “progress”? Or is it possible to “turn back the clock” by turning back to God?

June 18, 2013 – Chris Slattery

We are honored today to have another great veteran front-line pro-lifer as our Guest on the Quest–“The Quest for a Culture of Life in America”. Chris Slattery is the Founder and President of Expectant Mother Care Frontline Pregnancy Centers (EMC) in America’s most hostile environment for pre-born babies.

NYC has the highest abortion rate in America–60%, if I recall correctly. EMC operates 12 pregnancy resource centers in four NYC boroughs, including 6 in the Bronx, of which one is a mobile unit with ultrasound. Since beginning in 1985, EMC has saved at least 44,000 babies from abortion and counseled over 125,000 women.

Chris has an established Pro-Life Internship that trains and engages people in the EMC ministry in NYC and expands EMC into other cities and states.

What will we learn from our program today that can motivate us to join the battle for a Culture of Life?
