One of our sidewalk counselors shared this song with us.  It was written by a pastor in response to New York’s late term abortion law that was just recently passed.  Please take a listen.  Here’s the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch

19 open hours still this week!

The new annual report for Planned Parenthood is out.  You can check it out on Facebook at:

 
 
* Their number of abortions performed is up.
* Government funding for PP is up.
* Legitimate health care services provided by PP are DOWN.
 
We all know that Planned Parenthood is all about abortion (at any stage of pregnancy).  They are also worried that the days of the tragic decision of Roe v. Wade are numbered.  That’s why they’re working so hard to get states to pass those crazy late-term abortion laws.
 
Spread the word and STAND UP for LIFE!

If you frequent any of the mentioned bakeries and restaurants in Madison, you may want to stop.  Fundraisers like this are just ANOTHER reason why Planned Parenthood should be defunded of all taxpayer dollars!!

19 open hours this week!

Are you ready to fight for the right to life of the pre-born/unborn?  If you have not made it to the front lines lately – now is the time to renew your dedication to the cause of LIFE!  With New York passing its new grisly “Reproductive Health Act” in recent weeks and Virginia and Rhode Island trying to do the same, are you not motivated to rise up and speak for those who have no voice?

 
Although our “fighting” is done primarily through prayer and peaceful witness – it is still a battle – mainly a spiritual one.  God is with us!
 
“The word of the Lord came to me, saying: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.  But do you gird your loins; stand up and tell them all that I command you.  Be not crushed on their account, as though I would leave you crushed before them; for it is I this day who have made you a fortified city, a pillar of iron, a wall of brass, against the whole land; against Judah’s kinds and princes, against its priests and people.  They will fight against you but not prevail over you, for I am with you to deliver you, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 1:4-5,17-19

40 Days for Life Spring Campaign

Good Evening, Friends of Vigil for Life!

As is the norm, we will not be hosting a spring 40 Days for Life campaign this year.  We will, however, increase our presence on the sidewalk to 9-6, M-F to be in solidarity with the spring 40 Days for Life campaign.  So – our increased hours will begin on Wednesday, March 6th.

For LIFE,

The team at Vigil for Life

16 open hours this week!

  • Children truly are the family’s greatest treasure and most precious good. Consequently, everyone must be helped to become aware of the intrinsic evil of the crime of abortion. In attacking human life in its very first stages, it is also an aggression against society itself. Politicians and legislators, therefore, as servants of the common good, are duty bound to defend the fundamental right to life, the fruit of God’s love.
  •  
  • – Pope Benedict XVI

CHAPLET OF FATIMA

Using the Prayers Taught by the Angel of Peace at Fatima, Portugal

Please pray this chaplet as often as you can — anytime, anywhere — especially at times and places where our Holy Triune God is most offended and unloved – like outside of abortion facilities. (for public and private recitation on ordinary rosary beads)

Begin with:
Making the Sign of the Cross
(Kiss the Crucifix.)

Apostle’s Creed

(on the first bead and next three small beads:)
For the increase of Faith, Hope, and
Charity and the intentions of the Holy Father
1 Our Father / 3 Hail Marys / 1 Glory Be

(on the large bead before each decade:)
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
I adore you profoundly, and I
offer You the Most Precious Body, Blood,
Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ,
present in all the tabernacles of the
world, in reparation for the outrages,
sacrileges, and indifference by which
He is offended, and by the infinite
merits of His Most Sacred Heart and
through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

(on the ten small beads of each decade:)
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You!
I ask pardon for those who do not believe,
do not adore, do not hope and do not love You.

(following the ten small beads of each decade:)
1 Glory Be
(and)
“O Most Holy Trinity, I adore You!
My God, My God, I love You in the most
Blessed Sacrament.”
(end Chaplet with Hail Holy Queen Prayer:)

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy!
Our Life, our sweetness, and our Hope!
To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To Thee do we send up our sighs, mourning,
and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile show unto us the
blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us O Holy Mother of God
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen

(Make the sign of the Cross)

In 1916, the Angel of Peace appeared in Fatima, Portugal,
to three shepherd children, Francisco, Jacinta, and Lucia
teaching them the prayers that became the foundation
for this Chaplet of Adoration and Reparation.

Dear Friends of Life,

 
As many of you may have heard, the abortion rate in Wisconsin rose from 2016-2017 (2017 statistics were just recently released by the WI Department of Health Services).  In Dane County (most of these at Planned Parenthood on Orin Rd. in Madison), this equates to about 83 more abortions in 2016 than in 2017.  Let’s fill all of our hours this year!
