Defund Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood receives approximately $500 million a year in taxpayer funds!
Congressman Diane Black said, “As a nurse for more than 40 years, I know that abortion is not healthcare and I am incensed that, year after year, my constituents see their money sent to Washington and distributed to organizations that promote or perform abortions all under the guise of ‘healthcare’ services. This is a sham and it is an affront to the conscience rights of every American taxpayer.”
In reparation for this abusive use of taxpayers’ money, on Inauguration Day over 100 faithful, including myself, followed Florida Bishop Frank Dewayne in a Peaceful Rosary Procession around the Regional Headquarters of Planned Parenthood in Sarasota, Florida. Approximately 20 unborn children were scheduled to be killed by abortion on that day.
We prayed to defund Planned Parenthood, for the end of abortion, for life from conception to natural death, for conversion of the supporters of our Culture of Death and for eternal life for the parents of aborted children and for their children.
On June 14, 2013, the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was present at this Sarasota Planned Parenthood for a Peaceful Prayer Presence with the faithful. They carried the Missionary Image with their rosaries and offered prayers and words of encouragement to the mothers who were considering aborting their unborn children.
Roberta Sargis said, “The Missionary Image brings many spiritual blessings. People gravitate to the Image and pour out their hearts as they would to a mother. She hears them and she answers them.”
“It will only be known in heaven the full impact on ending abortion and the spiritual fruit of the Visitation of the Missionary Image to the Diocese of Venice, Florida,” said Guardian Gloria Agudelo.
Over 20 abortion centers have closed after prayerful Visitations to them by the Missionary Image. Through Our Lady’s intercession, mothers have been healed from post abortion stress syndrome and infertile women have become mothers.
Perhaps Our Lady of Guadalupe is calling you to host a Visitation of her Missionary Image.
This is the prayer that we prayed at the Sarasota Planned Parenthood on Inauguration Day:
Father, all life is in your care.
You have entrusted us to one another,
that we may show our brothers and sisters the same love you have for us.
We pray, then, for the least among us,
the children in the womb.
Protect them from the bottom violence of abortion.
We pray for those that are scheduled to die at the Sarasota Planned Parenthood abortion center.
Save them from death.
Give new hope to their parents,
that they may turn away from the desperate act of abortion.
Grant conversion to the abortionists and to the staff.
Show us how we are to respond to the bloodshed in our midst,
And lead us to the day when this place of death
Will be transformed into a haven of life.
Guard us with your joy in your peace,
For in you, life is victorious.
We pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Let us pray the Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe so that our country will finally defund Planned Parenthood and support a Culture of Life and a Civilization of Love.
