LICL 2011 ORATORY CONTEST Sunday, April 10, 2011 - Grades 11and 12 Students (including Home Schooled), and Teachers Call: Maryjane McQuade at 516-599-5296 "BLOODMONEY: the Business of Abortion"-now available on DVD is a documentary narrated by Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It features interviews with Carol Everett, former abortion clinic owner and pro-life leaders, Fr. Frank Pavone, Joe Schiedler and others. It exposes the abortion industry for what it is. Hiding behind the mask of helping women, in reality it is a greed-driven industry that harms people and takes the lives of 50 million innocent children. The DVD is available online at Bloodmoneyfilm.com and the producers of the film are also licensing public screenings so that the truth behind the abortion industry can be exposed for what it is. Susan G. Komen For the Cure Link to Planned Parenthood...true that Komen gives grants to PP for breast cancer screening ($7.5M in 2009 according to lifenews.com) but as Komen, despite the evidence of multiple studies, refuses to list abortion as a risk factor for the development of breast cancer and then gives money to PP, the largest provider of abortion in the U.S. and seller of hormonal contraceptives, both cancer causing, they are not considered to be a good recipient of your pro-life dollars! This is not to say that every woman who has breast cancer has had an abortion in her past anymore than to say every lung cancer victim was a smoker. Abortion increases the risk that you could get breast cancer, therefore should be considered a risk factor for the disease that could be caused by numerous other things. "...because in- duced abortion is largely a choice that women make, it is a PREVENTABLE risk factor for this disease. Abortion bound women have the right to make informed choices, just as much as tobacco smokers have the right to be warned that tobacco use is a risk factor for lung cancer. Furthermore, women who have procured abortions have the right to know that they need to take steps for early detection of possible tumors. Sadly, the abortion industry and its supporters have a long history of censoring the research while, at the same time, asserting that women are autonomous decision makers." Source: Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. It is disingenuous of Komen to portray themselves as doing all that they can to fight breast cancer if they continue to partner with PP and ignore the research.

THE MARCH FOR LIFE AND FEDERAL LEGISLATION. March for Life President, Nellie Gray, since day one, urged marchers to visit their legislators. If 1/22 falls on a weekend, the March is moved to a Monday, as in 1/24/2011, when offices are open. Due to the length of the March, plus security at buildings, visiting legislators after the March has become next to impossible and many skip this vital part of the March for Life. Suggested Alternatives include: (a) arrive in Washington, D.C. at 10 or 10:30 AM to allow your group to visit representatives before marching; (b) arrive in Wash. at 11:30 AM with each group having designated four or five lobbyists to go directly to the offices. These may miss the March, or part of, but your legislators will know his/her constituents, your school, church, etc. attended the March. (c) have the entire group lobby after the March if that has been successful. Please let us know of other possible options. There is a serious need to lobby for pro-life legislation and to support legislators who have supported or promised to support pro-life legislation Call LICL 631-243-1435 before January 5th as appointments with representatives must be made by your group or by the LICL. Life News-8-November 2010 THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER STAND UP FOR LIFE SUCCESS! There was a chill in the Fall air but we had another beautiful Stand Up For Life witness in Huntington as well as in Manorville. A very heartfelt thank you to all the volun- teers, supporters, participants and those who stayed home and prayed. We estimate the crowd in Huntington to be approximately 885 and in Manorville 110 participants. Isn’t it a great feeling to be part of Long Island’s largest pro -life witness? Our faithfulness will turn the hearts of peo- ple so that not only will Roe v. Wade be overturned, but the thought of abortion will be unthinkable!

We know there are pre-born infants in danger of abortion. Therefore, this program invites the commu- nity to commit themselves to praying every day for the nine months, praying that the mother and father of an infant receive the strength by God’s Spirit to continue to choose life. Where to start? Begin the program with a sign-up weekend. Participants sign a pledge card promising to pray every day for a baby they spiritually adopt and for his/her parents. The pledge card suggests the “Spiritually Adopted” baby be given a name. Monthly Development Report: During each of the nine months the parish bulletin updates the child’s development. For example: 3rd Month Developing Baby: Your baby is quite active now. If his/her mother’s womb had a window, you could watch your “Spiritually Adopted” baby squint, swallow, and move his tongue. Your baby can make a tight fist if you touch his/ her palm. Baby obtains the oxygen his body needs through the umbilical cord. The baby you are praying for weighs one ounce. Suggestions for concluding the program: A closing Mass or Service, a Communion Breakfast, a “Baby Shower” from which the gifts, diapers, formula can be donated to a nearby pregnancy help center. Need help in getting started? Many churches and Knights of Columbus Councils have run successful programs. If you need assistance, you may call Joseph Welsh 631-698-4410. Note: A series of posters showing development of the pre-born child can obtained from the DRVC Respect Life Office. Call Diana Tellis at 516-379-8292 x215. Posters coincide with the nine-month project. SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS Life News-9 Nov. 2010 They support the pro-life movement on Long Island by advertising in Life News. PETER J.
