9 Days For Life Novena: Day 2: Unborn Children

 

Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

Day Two:
January 22, 2020
Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children
Did You Know?
In the Catholic Church in the United States, January 22nd is designated as a particular day of prayer and penance, called the “Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children.” As Catholics, we are called to observe this day through the penitential practices of prayer, fasting, and/or giving alms.
Intercession
May all unborn children be protected in law and welcomed in love.
Prayers
Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
Reflection
Today, on this 47th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we mourn the many children’s lives ended by abortion and remember in prayer those who suffer the aftermath. The Church comes together today to pray for the protection of all unborn children and to make reparation for abortion, trusting that the Lord hears our prayers.
Pope Saint John Paul II wrote, “A great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world. Through special initiatives and in daily prayer, may an impassioned plea rise to God, the Creator and lover of life, from every Christian community, from every group and association, from every family and from the heart of every believer” (Evangelium vitae, 100). May that prayer arise in our hearts today and each day forward until every human being is protected in law and welcomed in love.
Acts of Reparation (Choose one.)
  • Fast from one meal today.
  • Offer this brief “Prayer for Life” for all unborn children whose lives are at risk.
Father and maker of all,
you adorn all creation
with splendor and beauty,
and fashion human lives
in your image and likeness.
Awaken in every heart
reverence for the work of your hands,
and renew among your people
a readiness to nurture and sustain
your precious gift of life.
Grant this through our Lord
Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in
the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God forever and ever.
Amen.
  • Offer some other sacrifice, prayer, or act of penance that you feel called to do for today’s intention.
One Step Further
More women and girls consider abortion than we may realize. They are our relatives and friends, people who work with us or for us. Even if someone identifies as being pro-life, the shock of an unexpected pregnancy, the devastation of a difficult prenatal diagnosis, shame, pressures, or fears may influence her to consider abortion.
If someone shared with you that she was pregnant and hadn’t ruled out having an abortion, would you know how to respond in a loving way that is life-affirming for both her and her baby?

Proclamation on National Sanctity of Human Life Day, 2020

Issued on: January 21, 2020



Every person — the born and unborn, the poor, the downcast, the disabled, the infirm, and the elderly — has inherent value.  Although each journey is different, no life is without worth or is inconsequential; the rights of all people must be defended.  On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, our Nation proudly and strongly reaffirms our commitment to protect the precious gift of life at every stage, from conception to natural death.

Recently, we have seen decreases in the total number and rate of abortions in our country.  From 2007-2016, the most recent period of analysis, the number and rate of abortions decreased by 24 percent and 26 percent, respectively.  The rate of teen pregnancies — the vast majority of which are unplanned — has almost continuously decreased over the last quarter century, contributing to the lowest rate of abortions among adolescents since the legalization of abortion in 1973.  All Americans should celebrate this decline in the number and rate of abortions, which represents lives saved.  Still, there is more to be done, and, as President, I will continue to fight to protect the lives of the unborn.  I signed into law legislation under the Congressional Review Act that allows States and other grantees to exclude organizations that perform abortions from their Title X projects.  My Administration has also issued regulations to ensure Title X family planning projects are clearly separated from those that perform, promote, or refer for abortion as a method of family planning; to protect the conscience rights of healthcare workers and organizations, including with respect to abortion; and to ensure the Federal Government does not force employers that object, based on religious belief or moral conviction, to provide insurance for contraceptives, including those they believe cause early abortions.  Additionally, I have called on the Congress to act to prohibit abortions of later-term babies who can feel pain.

My Administration is also building an international coalition to dispel the concept of abortion as a fundamental human right.  So far, 24 nations representing more than a billion people have joined this important cause.  We oppose any projects that attempt to assert a global right to taxpayer‑funded abortion on demand, up to the moment of delivery.  And we will never tire of defending innocent life — at home or abroad.

As a Nation, we must remain steadfastly dedicated to the profound truth that all life is a gift from God, who endows every person with immeasurable worth and potential.  Countless Americans are tireless defenders of life and champions for the vulnerable among us.  We are grateful for those who support women experiencing unexpected pregnancies, those who provide healing to women who have had abortions, and those who welcome children into their homes through foster care and adoption.  On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, we celebrate the wonderful gift of life and renew our resolve to build a culture where life is always revered.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 22, 2020, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.  Today, I call on the Congress to join me in protecting and defending the dignity of every human life, including those not yet born.  I call on the American people to continue to care for women in unexpected pregnancies and to support adoption and foster care in a more meaningful way, so every child can have a loving home.  And finally, I ask every citizen of this great Nation to listen to the sound of silence caused by a generation lost to us, and then to raise their voices for all affected by abortion, both seen and unseen.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-first day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.

DONALD J. TRUMP

Mary TV: January 22, 2020 Reflection – And when you fast…

(c) Mary TV 2016

 

January 22, 2020
Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of the Unborn

Dear Family of Mary!

“…My children, my Son pronounced the words of the ‘Our Father’-Our Father, [You] who are everywhere and in our hearts-because He desires to teach you to pray with words and feelings. He desires for you to always be better, to live merciful love which is prayer and limitless sacrifice for others…” (January 2, 2020) 

 
Jesus taught us how to pray. He also taught us how to fast. These two things are linked. On this fast day, let’s listen to Jesus:

Matthew 6: 5-18

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.

But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

“And in praying do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their many words.

Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Pray then like this:

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our debts,
As we also have forgiven our debtors;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;
but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

“And when you fast, do not look dismal, like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.

But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,
that your fasting may not be seen by men but by your Father who is in secret;
and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. (Matthew 6: 5-18)

And when we pray today, let’s pray for the unborn, and their families, that they will be safe and live long lives.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Over 500,000 Pro-Life People Will March for Life, 50 Times More Than the Pro-Abortion Women’s March

About half a million people are expected to travel to Washington, D.C. on Friday for the annual March for Life.



Canada Euthanized 5,000 Patients Last Year, Has Killed 13,000 People Since Legalization

I estimate that there have been at least 13,000 euthanasia deaths and here is how I defend this estimate.

President Trump “Has Done More for the Pro-Life Movement Than Any President”

The president of the upcoming March for Life was effusive in her praise for President Donald Trump in a recent interview, saying he has “done more for the pro-life movement than any president.”

When he is not playing football, New England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson spends a lot of his time advocating for unborn babies.

LISTEN: Woman Hemorrhaged Half Gallon of Blood During Botched Abortion, Clinic Delays Calling 911

When an abortion patient hemorrhaged during an abortion at Four Women Health Services, an abortion facility in Attleboro, Massachusetts, on October 5, 2019, it wasn’t until she had lost two liters of blood that an ambulance was called.

Planned Parenthood’s sponsorship did little to help the rapidly dwindling Women’s March in 2020.

Unborn children may feel pain before the 24-week abortion time limit, meaning they would physically suffer when being aborted.

National Pro-Life Groups Applaud HHS Secretary Alex Azar, Trump Administration Following Recent Comments

National Pro-Life Groups Applaud HHS Secretary Alex Azar, Trump Administration Following Recent Comments

The Justice Foundation President Allan Parker and Cynthia Collins, global consultant for Operation Outcry — a movement of women injured by abortion — released the following joint statement following the Trump Administration’s recent comments at the Blair House:

 

“We thank and applaud Secretary Alex Azar and President Trump for the administration’s comments at the Blair House on January 16. In a speech before a coalition of health leaders from 35 countries, Secretary Azar commented that ‘there is no international human right to abortion’ but that ‘there is an international right to life.’ He then went on to further reject the ‘constant drumbeat’ from organizations like the World Health Organization about ‘reproductive rights’ which he defined as ‘unfettered access to abortion.’ The Secretary is absolutely correct.

 

The fact is that abortion is a crime against humanity, which should be and ultimately will be illegal in every nation. Abortion deeply injures women and has been made obsolete in the United States by Safe Haven laws which ensure that no mother has to take care of an unwanted child. This is why later this week we will join hundreds of thousands of other Americans and March for Life. For the same reason, The Justice Foundation has filed three different briefs with the United States Supreme Court in June Medical Services LLC v. Gee, the Louisana Unsafe Abortion Protection Act case to be heard on March 4 of this year.”

After 47 Years of Decriminalized Abortion, Pro-Life Movement Is Positioned for Victory

 
Building an Abortion-Free America
After 47 Years of Decriminalized Abortion, Pro-Life Movement Is Positioned
for Victory
Washington, D.C. – As the nation marks the 47th memorial of the 1973 Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision that decriminalized abortion in America, the Pro-Life Movement is finally positioned for victory.
“For over 47 years, people of faith have worked and prayed for an end of abortion, and today, those prayers are being answered. We are closer than ever to achieving that goal. But we stand at a crossroads as we face an election in November that will determine the fate of millions of babies that are yet to be conceived,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.
Horrific Abortion Injury! 911 Caller Evasive While Woman Hemorrhaged a Half Gallon of Blood During Botched Abortion
Attleboro, MA – When an abortion patient hemorrhaged during an abortion at Four Women Health Services, an abortion facility in Attleboro, Massachusetts, on October 5, 2019, it wasn’t until she had lost two liters of blood that an ambulance was called.
The human body holds a total of 5-6 liters of blood. A loss of two liters — over a half gallon — would cause the patient’s heart to race, her blood pressure to drop, and would result in her slipping of consciousness.
Without elaborating, the caller sternly told the dispatcher, “This is an emergency. I need you to come and bring the patient to the hospital.”
