40 Days For Life: DAY 36: Lawyer jokes aside ...

Dear Deacon John,
I've traveled to more than 450 abortion facilities – and received many legal threats from the abortion industry over the last 15 years – and have learned that the pro-life movement needs good lawyers ... lawyers who have experience in law enforcement and in corporate law.
40 Days for Life is blessed that our board chair and general counsel has both.
Matt Britton has helped get 40 Days for Life campaigns to places in the United States and globally using his vast legal experience as an elected prosecutor and corporate attorney.
Many of you have heard Matt on the 40 Days for Life podcast ... and recently he appeared on EWTN's Pro-Life Weekly.
To watch the video, click the image above ... or go to:
In addition, Matt has visited numerous 40 Days for Life vigil sites to help encourage local volunteers. Here are just a couple of examples.

Richmond, Virginia

Matt brought a group of religious education students to the 40 Days for Life vigil in Richmond, where they prayed outside one of the two abortion centers in Virginia's capital city.
"Thank you for your faithfulness in coming out to pray," said Ann, the 40 Days for Life coordinator. To this group, and to the many other faithful volunteers who take time to visit, she said, "You make a great difference!"
Praying for an end to abortion, she said, will "stop the violence that ends the lives of our youngest and most vulnerable children in our city."

Houston, Texas

As an attorney and former state prosecutor, board chair Matt Britton also serves as 40 Days for Life's general counsel.
He spoke at a recent rally at the 40 Days for Life vigil site in Houston – the Planned Parenthood building that is the largest abortion center in the Western Hemisphere.
Matt spoke of the importance of exercising First Amendment Rights ... and being a voice of freedom on the sidewalk so that these critical rights not taken away. 
You can hear more about this important topic on a special edition of the 40 Days for Life podcast.
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them. And God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
 Genesis 1:27-28
Father of mercy and grace, we thank you for the gift of our children. Grant that every fiber of our being may rejoice when a new baby, our own or any else’s, is born into the world. Help us to welcome them as we would welcome you, for whenever a new baby is conceived, another life to bear your image and another voice to praise and worship you, is beginning.

Pro-life rally at the Supreme Court

Dear John,
The rain didn’t stop pro-lifers from rallying in front of the Supreme Court this morning to show their support for pregnancy help centers and fight back against the abortion lobby’s attacks on free speech.
The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) represents more than 1,400 pro-life pregnancy centers nationwide. They are challenging a California law forcing these centers to post ads telling women where to get taxpayer-funded abortions, or face potentially thousands of dollars in fines.
John, this is deeply wrong. It undermines the centers’ pro-life mission and threatens their very existence. It goes against everything we stand for as a nation. We wouldn’t force Alcoholics Anonymous to tell their members where to get liquor, or the American Lung Association to promote cigarettes – but California is forcing pregnancy centers to turn their walls into billboards for the abortion industry.
Today was a huge day for the Pro-Life Movement as oral arguments in this incredibly important case, NIFLA v. Becerra, began. SBA List and our research arm, the Charlotte Lozier Institute, sent staff to speak at the rally:
Jeanne with our National Campaign Chair, Jill Stanek
Jeanne with our National Campaign Chair, Jill Stanek
Mallory Quigley, SBA List Vice President of Communications
Genevieve Plaster, CLI Deputy Director
Earlier this year, Charlotte Lozier Institute and SBA List’s National Pro-Life Women’s Caucus joined the March for Life Education Fund to file a “friend of the court” brief to the Supreme Court in support of NIFLA’s case.
Pregnancy centers exist to serve mothers in need and their unborn children. Unlike the abortion industry, they don’t profit from vulnerable women. CLI has done research showing the stunning impact pregnancy centers have in their communities and to families:
  • 2,752 center locations nationwide that provide vital services including obstetrical care, lactation services and parenting classes;
  • Six in 10 locations (or 1,661) offer free ultrasounds (up 10 percent since 2010);
  • 577 locations offer STD testing, 400 locations offer STD treatment onsite(up from 260 centers offering such services in 2010);
  • 100 mobile units with ultrasound rolling on the road to bring services to women out in the community;
  • 30,000 contacts per month to Heartbeat International Option Line hotline;
  • 81,630 volunteers (up 15 percent from 2010 figure of 70,000 volunteers; nine out of 10 center workers are volunteers);
  • 6.5 million volunteer hours (up from 5.7 million in 2010);
It could be several weeks before the Supreme Court issues a ruling. In the meantime, here are a few helpful actions you can take:
  • Visit and use the hashtag #GiveFreeSpeechLife on social media to show your support
  • Read and share NIFLA President Tom Glessner and CLI President Chuck Donovan’s powerful FOX News op-ed below, which explains what’s at stake in this case
  • Watch EWTN Pro-life Weekly this Thursday at 10pm ET for analysis from Carrie Severino of Judicial Crisis Network and SCOTUSblog reporter Amy Howe
  • Pray, pray, pray! Pray for the Court to rule wisely, pray for the wonderful pregnancy center staff and volunteers, and last but not least, pray for our opponents. There were many angry voices raised outside the Court today, but they could not drown out our message of truth and love – and that’s what free speech is all about.
Thank you for standing with us!
