“The VOICE of JOHN has been heard”

A Historic Victory for LIFE

The US Supreme Court issued a ruling overturning the tragic 1973 ruling known as Roe vs Wade. A half
century, 50 years, a death toll of over 63 million children. And on June 24th, the Catholic Feast of the
Sacred Heart of Jesus, this abominable decision has been reversed. This landmark ruling will return the
decision to the states where the people, through their elected officials can promote policies to protect
the child in the womb, and the mother.

Right now, emotions are high, and we must move forward as a country to create a post Roe society. I
hope we can begin by civil conversations, not speaking over one another, instead speaking to one
another. Above all, me must listen to the concerns. It is my belief that while the media portrays the
“pro-choice” side as the “celebrate abortion” or “shout out your abortion” radical woman, it is my
feeling that in fact, it is actually women who have fears and genuine concerns about their ability to
make sound decisions and face an unplanned or crisis pregnancy.

A constitutional right has not been revoked, for nowhere in the constitution of the United States is there
a right to abortion; there is however a right to life. Pennsylvania’s Department of Health revealed in its
latest 1-year statistic report that 32,000 babies were aborted in Pa. We commend this Court for their
diligence in securing the constitutional right to life to the most vulnerable among us, the child in the

Additionally, know that the Pro-Life movement reaches out to women: no pregnant woman should feel
alone or abandoned. Pregnancy resource centers throughout our Commonwealth are standing by to
help women with the aid and emotional support every pregnant woman deserves.
At this time, I reflect on the words I spoke to a little boy named John who had been aborted and then
left to die on a dirty utility room counter. “John, if your Mommy could see you as I do, she would not
have done this to you”. Today, I am recommitted to moving our organization forward with educational
programs to assure that women and men understand the sacredness and beauty of the child in the
womb. No woman should have to live with the regret of empty arms; no man should have to live with
their lost fatherhood. Our work is to transform our society to a culture of life.

I pay tribute to Katherine Lutz, Mary Farley Pane and Loretta McNellis, to Nellie Gray and the founders
of our grassroots organizations locally and nationally.

The  PA Senate passed the Amendment which will protect our state from a Judicial imposition of abortion. It had been made necessary by the likelihood that the PA Supreme Court was poised to declare that abortion had “evolved” into a constitutional right. It would have also lifted prohibitions against taxpayer funded elective abortions. 

After quite a bitter 5 hour debate in the House, the Amendment also passed there. 

The process requires that the same Amendment be passed by both houses again in the next session (starts January 2023), then a referendum of PA voters will vote yes or no. 


Still lots of work and prayer needed as we move forward!
