The following is from Dr. Monique Ruberu. Hours are still needed to be filled. Visit 40daysforlife.com.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
[We have] such an awesome story to share…at 777 the pro-abortion escorts often play music to drown us out as we try to speak to the moms going in. That music is often demonic, or crude…rarely tolerable and nice… So by the grace of God working through a donor, we purchased a nice speaker and mic so we could share Christian music and speak to the moms over their noise.
I knew the moms on the sidewalk could hear us, but Marlene, Pat, and I prayed that the moms could hear us inside as well… well today the officer told us that Lynn (elderly pro-abortion escort) was complaining about the loudness of our music => the officer pointed out that the only reason we have music playing is that they started playing music and he had observed the interaction for the past few months… then she said – “Yes but their music is disturbing them INSIDE”
SO PRAISE GOD!!! The moms can HEAR US INSIDE!!! – I told the officer I’d be happy to stop our music if they do t play music… I’ll just use it to talk on my mic – directly to the women inside 🙂
Guys when we show up to do this work for God it is very important that we first feed our souls in preparation for this work… please do spend time daily in mass, in prayer, in scripture, in meditation on Jesus, in adoration… in the Word of God especially …the closer you allow yourself to get to Him… the more you allow Him to fill you…the better your work will be.
After beating bogus charges from the FBI and Biden Administration Department of “Justice”, Mark Houck returned to the sidewalk of Planned Parenthood.
In addition to his son, his whole family joined him. Moreover, two dozen pro-lifers throughout the surrounding area and region joined him for witness and prayer.
It was a sense of calm yet one of awareness of what a peaceful presence can mean in the fight to build a culture of life.
Those gathered even prayed over Mark and his family as he returns to pro-life activism. He also intends to sue the FBI for violating his rights.
Lent 2023 40 Days for Life
Pro-lifers are asked to come out as we are approaching another Lenten campaign. All that it entails is peaceful, loving people willing to sacrifice two hours or more a week to help save lives, change hearts and minds, and just be present
THE FOLLOWING IS A RELEASE SENT BY EMAIL FROM TOM STEVENS, PRESIDENT OF THE PRO-LIFE UNION OF GREATER PHILADELPHIA
In 2021 there were 3% more abortions in Pennsylvania than in the previous year. The total, 33,206, is the highest number of abortions reported in the past ten years. Half, 16,542, of those abortions occur right in our backyard, the five-county Philadelphia area.
To help understand the sheer magnitude, imagine 16,542 moms or dads pushing a baby in a stroller in a single file. It would be a line that stretches nearly sixteen miles! Imagine one of them being your grandchild or child, nephew or niece.
This is why the Pro-Life Union believes that we can’t protect the right to life as a single organization. Instead, we need to support our associate member organizations, work with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and independent churches, and anyone who will join us in the effort. Pregnancy resource centers like Hope Pregnancy and AlphaCare are part of the solution.
The Pro-Life Union and Catholic Social Services partnership at the Cenacle in Frankford serving more than one thousand vulnerable families is part of the answer. Adoption is a Loving Option, Culture Project, Students for Life, and other groups reaching out to students are a significant part of the effort. Forty Days for Life, Sidewalk Servants, and others organizing volunteers to serve in front of abortion centers are rescuing babies (and women) in another way.
Chester County Pro-Life Coalition and their March for Life and sponsorship of the name? ‘TOB for young women’ is another part of the prevention. You can meet many of these resource providers on April 1st at the Life Advocate Resource Conference. Many churches working together to provide solutions will also be present.

Haven’t heard of the Frankford Family Life Center? In partnership with Catholic Social Services we are opening a family life center in Frankford, Philadelphia. The Center is up and running and already serving over 60 women and their families. There will be an official opening in October!
The following information was taken from the newsletter of the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia. They are looking for prayer support as well as volunteers. To volunteer, contact the Pro-Life Union at email@example.com. To make a donation to help them with this worthwhile endeavor, please use this link.
In October of 2021 the Frankford Family Life Center (final name still to be announced) will fully launch and we’ll have the opening ceremonies events. The Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia in an expanded partnership with Catholic Social Services are opening the first-ever Community-based Culture of Life Initiative of it’s kind. The goal is to transform the Frankford section of Philadelphia into a Culture of Life by building a sustainable, self-sufficient, and permanent pro-life presence there. Through compassionate service, education, community engagement, programming and material assistance, we will build an effective effort that helps many moms and families (already servicing more than 60 families) and minimizes abortion-risk in the area. Planned services include:
Parenting, Child-birthing, Fatherhood, Prenatal Classes and many other types of education.
Pregnancy Fitness Classes: Fitess classed for pregnant women will be taught by a certified fitness instructor specialized in pregnancy fitness.
Car Seat and Crib Program, Newborn and Maternity Clothing resources
Real Alternatives information, STI?STD information, Health & Resource referrals.
Moms’ Coffee Clubs, Toddler Play area and other family support services, seating, soft instrumental music, changing facilities.
Know God, Know Yourself, Know Others
No cost laundromat – now in operation. Thank you to the donors who gave new washers and dryers!
The Frankford Family Life Center is already service over 58 women and counting! Right now the center is open on Thursday’s and Friday’s as renovations and improvements of the space are taking place. It will be staffed full-time this summer and we will be providing lunches this summer to school-aged children. We look forward to watching this center take flight in October!
Would you Pray for Us?
We need your prayerful support! The Frankford Family Life Center is an exciting new mission, but it will be hard work, so we need all the help we can get. Please consider starting a prayer tream to help life up this project as we move forward! And pray that it impacts the community and decreases abortion in the area.
Calls and emails are needed to be sent to Majority Leader of the Pennsylvania House. Three pro-life bills were put forward from the Health Committee. So far none have come to the full House for a vote.
HB 118 – Dignity for Fetal Remains
HB 1500 – Down Syndrome
HB 904 – Heartbeat Bill
Please call Leader Benninghoff and ask that he “expeditiously schedules votes for each of the 3 pro-life bills”. If possible also send an email too – with “Run All Three Pro-Life Bills NOW”.
The bills are good legislation, and our legislators need to have an opportunity to pass them. Waiting could delay the Senate from taking them up before the Summer Recess.
Below is a video from Tom Stevens, President and CEO of the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia urging our help reaching out to women who are entering Planned Parenthood. While this message specifically is for help from pro-life warriors in SE Pennsylvania, it is also an urgent plea for help outside any and all killing centers across the country. Please take a moment to listen to Tom, and please make an effort to go out and pray at an abortion facility near you.
