40 Pro-lifers took part in the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 12th.

The weather was perfect with spring-like temperatures. Those who marched wore green scarves. This has been an annual tradition going back to the leadership of the late John Stanton.

Even many of the attendees cheered on pro-lifers along Market Street.

It was a day to honor a great saint who emphasized the trinity with the shamrock and ensured the pro-life message was spread to the thousands who were in attendance


A webinar will take place to equip all parishes for Respect Life month that happens in October.

The webinar will happen on Wednesday, August 17th at 2 PM. All attendees will receive a recording within two business days.

Register here.


The faithful of Philadelphia are welcome to attend a Mass in Thanksgiving for the reversal of Roe v Wade on Sunday, July 31st.

This will take place during the 11 AM Mass at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral.

All pro-life groups are encouraged to attend. There is free parking on the grounds of the Basilica.

A Litany of Pro-Life Saints

The following is an article written by Genevieve Perkins from Catholic Link.

Now is a great time to remember that life is precious from conception until natural death and reflect on what we can do to protect each other. Let’s ask for the intercession of these pro-life saints who undoubtedly lived with love for others, respecting their human dignity despite circumstances. The prayers of these saints and faithful Catholics across the world overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion in the United States, but it is imperative that we continue to pray for an end to all abortion throughout the world.

A Litany Of Pro-Life Saints

St. Gianna Molla, who as a mother and doctor sacrificed her own life for that of her child and who is the patroness of unborn children, mothers, and physicians, pray for us and the vulnerable, especially those who are pregnant with health complications. St. Gianna Molla, pray for an end to abortion!

St. Gerard Majella, who is sought after for miracles such as the ones from his lifetime and the young girl whose life and the life of her baby were saved through his handkerchief after his death and who is the patron of expectant mothers and saints, pray for us and the vulnerable, especially those in extreme pain and in need of miracles to live.  St. Gerard Majella, pray for an end to abortion!

When was the last time you heard a homily that centered on why abortion, gay marriage, birth control, death penalty, unjust wars, etc are wrong?

Surprisingly, many Catholics haven’t heard it every time they attend Mass on every given Sunday. Even if the priest or bishop does, they fear facing potential backlash from someone who could walk out from a message they disagree with. Today, churches are under attack, interrupted by those who are obsessed with a series called “A Handmaid Tale”. I thought adopting an Orwellian Utopia was bad enough from 1984.

20% of Catholics attend Mass while the other 80% find lame excuses to not live out their Catholic faith. The core reason is that they refuse to acknowledge the science and humanity of the unborn child, yet they would take part in the public outcry over a police shooting without a hint of researching the facts.

Thanks to poor catechism and even understanding of church teachings two out of three Catholics got the United States into the mess we endured for nearly half a century. On top of it, the priests are frightened to share the message of truth. It needs to be done now more than ever.

The fact that four Catholics on the Supreme Court overruled Roe v Wade and Casey v Planned Parenthood that now is the time to change our culture, heal our land, and most importantly begin the real work that we’ve been training for since 1973.

A faithful Catholic can’t say that they are Catholic but… That means you are not a true Catholic. Being a faithful Catholic or Christian means you are all in to defend those who need a voice and help them in their hour of great need.

The Catholic Clergy needs to step up their game and start proclaiming the truth with charity and mercy.

Fathers, Bishops, and Cardinals, rise up! Rise up and stop fearing rejection. Jesus persevered with great faith despite being rejected by many. You can too.


The following is from

A radical abortion group calling itself “Ruth Sent Us” announced this week that it is mobilizing activists to enter Catholic churches during Mass this coming Sunday in response to reports that the Supreme Court is set to overturn Roe vs. Wade.

“Whether you’re a ‘Catholic for Choice’, ex-Catholic, of other or no faith, recognize that six extremist Catholics set out to overturn Roe,” the group stated on Twitter. “Stand at or in a local Catholic Church Sun May 8.”

Ruth Sent Us included a video with the post, which showed activists dressed in Handmaid’s Tale costumes in a sacred building, disrupting worshippers with shouts of “Abortion on demand and without apology!” 

The same radical group earlier this week published the locations of pro-life Supreme Court justices’ private homes, calling on activists to show up at their houses. “We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics,” the group stated.

A Ruth Sent Us TikTok account uploaded a video of activists marching toward the doors of a Catholic Church. “Sometime a*****es need a beating,” the post stated.

Ruth Sent Us tweeted out another video of protesters interrupting Mass in another sacred building. The activists marched in and stood between the holy altar and the parishioners. “For 2,000 years the Catholic Church has been an institution for the enslavement of women,” shouted one.

“This is what Mother’s Day should look like,” tweeted Ruth Sent Us. “Catholic and Evangelical Churches nationwide.”

CatholicVote Communications Director Joshua Mercer says Catholics throughout the country should be wary and prepared when they attend Mass, especially this coming Sunday.

“In the past, we might have blown off the words of these activists as empty threats. But given the recent rash of very real attacks on Catholic statues and churches, it makes sense to be cautious,” Mercer said.

He added that Ruth Sent Us and other activists are quite explicit about their anti-Catholicism. “If they wanted, they could have just focused on the issue of abortion. But instead, they chose to highlight the Catholic faith of some of the pro-life justices,” he said, noting that the radical abortion group called the justices “extremist Catholics.”

CatholicVote has called on Catholics to pray for the justices whose addresses were published. “We’re talking about human beings, with children,” Mercer said. “And this Sunday, keep your eyes open. These are ruthless people, and they’re looking for a confrontation.”


Philly Youth Philly are gearing up for another Holy Week. Last year, they were in awe of the fact that the annual tradition was back in person after going virtual.

Mission Youth Philly is a group of high school, college students, and young adults that proclaim the gospel to all of the marginalized in the community. Reaching out to those on the margins at the most vulnerable stage is no different than the homeless, the drug addict, or even someone who needs to return to the faith with a contrite heart.

The event will begin with a 9AM prayer service outside of Planned Parenthood (1144 Locust Street). After the one hour of prayer in front of the devil’s layer, the youth will go around the city, carrying crosses made of real wood, sharing the message while offering to pray for those in need. Each intention the youth collect will be nailed to the cross and offered during the Good Friday service at the cathedral.

In the afternoon, the students will act out the Stations of the Cross with a procession from St. Patrick’s in Rittenhouse Square to the south lawn of the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral.

There is still time to register if you’re a high school or college student for this amazing and faith filled event. You have options for one day, five day, or even the entire Holy Week depending on your availability.

It will change your life.


You could be one of the faithful warriors standing outside of Planned Parenthood either praying, sidewalk advocating, or just being present.

As pro-lifers gear up for another 40 Days for Life campaign, Voices4Life takes this time to preview what to expect as we prepare for the Lenten Campaign outside of Planned Parenthood in the heart of the City of Brotherly Love, filled with darkness and hatred from those who claim that “#lovewins, #noplaceforhate, and my favorite #blacklivesmatter when a majority of the abortions are perpetrated on black unborn lives. Love will win when we offer compassion, love, and mercy to women in their hour of great need. Pro-lifers in the greater Philadelphia area are encouraged to make a Lenten sacrifice by giving the pro-life movement an hour or more of their time to save lives. The Lenten campaign runs from Wednesday, March 2nd, and ends on April 9th.

The 40 Days for Life Campaign will be present outside of Planned Parenthood in Center City Philadelphia for the 16th time.

During the previous campaigns, there has been much growth, many saves, and even many encounters. The main reason is because of faithful warriors stepping into the breach, whether old, young, retired, young professional, or even a student in the pursuit of knowledge gave an hour or more to help turn the tide of the abortion battle on the streets with prayer, fasting, and alms.

You too can make a difference. You are encouraged to take an hour or so during this Lenten campaign. Bring a friend or two with you.

Visit to pick your hours now.

The hours of operation are Mondays through Saturdays from 8AM to 5PM


If John Stanton were alive today, he would love to have stepped out in the bitter, winter cold, all bundled up, ready to save babies and prick the conscience of the workers and volunteers alike. He did it through every element. Whether he was alone or with a group, he carried a smile and a humble demeanor to every person that he would encounter.

His presence was felt this morning with 75 people stronger from all walks of life. The rally began with a rosary led by Martin Stanton.

Kim Savage of Generation Life shared about how on September 11th, she was scared about going to work when the world stood still when the events were unfolding in New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. She pointed to the fact that Planned Parenthood was offering abortions to the widows of the fallen first responders. Mr. Stanton told her, “We have work to do”. Indeed, she did go to work.

Pastor Bill Devlin shared how John Stanton prayed for his son Luke who had cancer at 18 months. His fervent prayer cured him, yet he continued to pray for him for the rest of his life.

Marlene Downing took the time to promote Susan B Anthony List. Correlating how she kept fighting this one girl in her neighborhood growing up Marlene shared how we are in a constant spiritual battle. God told her that “I’ll teach you to pray first”.

After the prayer vigil, everyone gathered for Mass that was celebrated by John Stanton’s longtime friend Father Rayford Emmons. Fr. Emmons shared about his many encounters with John Stanton, especially how he met him through an encounter when talking with a woman who had two suicide attempts, which propelled John to launch the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia.

Pat shared about how his father and several faithful prayed outside of Gosnell’s House of Horrors for many years. Additionally, he would fervently pray outside of two abortion facilities in Center City. He recalled the saves they had during his time out there through a letter Pat read after Mass.

Many of us have a story about John Stanton. Soon, each one will be told. He will also remain a powerful intercessor in heaven for all of your needs.

See our gallery of photos from today’s event.


Generation Life is hitting the highway; literally.

They will have their message on display the next time you are on the road whether shopping, visiting, road trip, or just cruising until you run out of gas.

This will help touch many hearts and minds.
