Thirteenth Everett 40 DFL Campaign

Today we embark on E40DFL Thirteenth campaign to end abortion in Everett and beyond. Let us invoke the power of the Holy Spirit to lead, inspire us with open and humble hearts. We pray that all who enter the doors at Planned Parenthood will receive God's grace to see the truth: unborn babies are people too; mothers & fathers protect their children, not to injure or destroy them. May God bless YOU.

My Passion


Being adopted, it is almost easy to be pro-life; it comes natural to me.  So, in the fall of 2007, I became involved in 40 Days for Life, a pro-life ministry based upon four components: prayer, fasting, peaceful vigil, and outreach to protect and pray for the unborn and their parents.  

Nationally 40 Days for Life began in Bryan/College Station, Texas. Thus far:

• 575,000 local prayer participants
• 16,000 churches
• 501 cities
• 19 countries
• 7,536 lives saved (Everett: 17 lives saved)
• 83 workers quit
• 40 clinics closed.

Our most visible feature is the prayer vigil located at the Everett Planned Parenthood; you are invited to witness with us.  This vigil is not a protest, but a peaceful and prayerful opportunity to seek the Lord’s will in this most important effort.

As Jesus dwells in us, we must also see Him in others, including those we meet and greet while on the sidewalk praying, fasting, holding peaceful vigil and outreaching in the love of Jesus.
 
YOU are invited to participate in the current national 40 Days for Life Campaign: September 25 - November 3.

Like a Dream: A Morsel




I awoke from what seemed like a dream…a morsel of the Sacred Host remained on my tongue.  It was like either an angel, maybe my guardian angel, had “fed” me Holy Communion, or it was Jesus, Himself.  I felt a spiritual presence. In biblical times, God and His angels visited mankind often in dreams.  To this day, though it was likely a dream, I leave open the possibility my Lord came to me that night – just as I receive Him each Sunday.

Humbled




 

I am humbled; I am in awe, kneeling but five feet from the monstrance – the vessel used to publicly worship and honor the Eucharistic Jesus Christ. Rays as of purified gold radiate and surround the body of Jesus within the monstrance.  It is like the Transfiguration of Christ – arrayed in dazzling brightness.

Since childhood, I have always been close to Jesus, especially in the Eucharist.  I recall my First Holy Communion picture as I waited to receive the Lord for the first time. In the early ‘80’s, I quickly rose out of bed at 3 a.m. to converse with and adore my Savior in Adoration.

The late Father J. Hardon, S.J. (1914-2000), catechist and prolific writer, spoke about “The Real Presence” in the Eucharist.  He explained, “We are to believe that the Eucharist is Jesus Christ – simply, without qualification. It is God become man in the fullness of His divine and human natures, body and soul, and in the fullness of everything that makes Jesus, Jesus.”

Dr. Tom Curran is the Director of Trinity Formation Resources, Federal Way, WA.  He proclaims in a four-part series, To Celebrate Worthily-Entering the Drama of the Mass, “As the priest’s hands are extended over the bread and wine, the Power of the Holy Spirit comes upon these gifts and transforms them into Christ’s body and blood.  Jesus entrusts all power to the priest during the Consecration…drawing the past of the Last Supper to the Present…actually, the Last Supper at the ‘Present’ moment…including His Death and Resurrection.”

Historically, a (1997) book written by Father Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R., and James Monti, In the Presence of Our Lord, examined the early Church Fathers, Doctors of the Church, and the lives of the Saints.  They presented significant evidence indicating Christ’s Presence within the Eucharist.  “The Great Presence,” which makes a Catholic Church different from every other place in the world, is really a most wonderful experience to see the Divine Presence looking on.    “I never knew what worship was,” said Cardinal John Henry Newman of England (1801-1890), “until I entered the Catholic Church.”  If a person is obligated to grant that God created all things out of nothing, “why doubt His power to change the substance of bread into the Body of His Son?”

“The Christ who faith tells me is here…is Jesus of Nazareth – Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.  The Jesus of the Eucharist is the Savior of the world.” –Father Benedict Groeschel.

Dr. Curran summarized, the Mass is the “most dramatic event we will ever witness in our lives.  The Lord, Jesus comes literally into our being – into the very depths of our hearts.  Upon partaking of our precious Lord and Savior are the spoken words, ‘The Body of Christ…Amen.’  (This is) fascinating!”

Patience, Perseverence, Prayer

PATIENCE, PERSEVERENCE, PRAYER
 
 
     For over 20 years, I had this indescribable feeling deep within my being, aching to see my birthmother.  I longed to meet her before she passed away.   This “feeling” never escaped me.  I wanted to know, touch and hug her.  I always knew God heard my prayers.  Might he also answer them?
     I began searching for my birthmother in 1981.  Washington Adoptee’s Reunion Movement (WARM) was the official agency within Washington State to unseal court records.  I learned of my “non-identifying information” through WARM.
     My birthmother was 21 at the time of delivery.  She had brown hair and blue eyes.  Nine siblings were in her Catholic family and she was of German ancestry.  I discovered my grandmother had tuberculosis and died of Alzheimer’s while my grandfather had heart problems and died of cancer. 
 
 
     Lastly, I learned my conception was due to rape.  The Confidential Intermediary for WARM stated I likely would not meet my birthmother.
     That “feeling” to locate my birthmother returned years later after raising our four children.  Other members of my adoptive family had located their birth relatives.  It was my turn.
     I tried searching several times between 1999 and 2002.  I went back to WARM for an update on my case.  Unfortunately, there was little new information.  However, I learned my birthmother’s name was “Ann.”  Additionally, I discovered both her parents and two brothers had passed away.
     Still unsatisfied, I initiated another search paying nearly $500.00 to an out of state agency.  I yearned to finish this journey which started years ago; it was consuming me.
     Unfortunately, it appeared the investigator never stepped foot into Washington State.  This agency provided no new information.  I felt disappointed, angry, and downright mad!
     On another occasion, I went directly to the Judge to plead my case.  Still, the answer was the same: “no contact with the birth family.”
     Twice, I sought prayer as the emotional roller coaster was taking its toll.  I felt God’s holy presence on both occasions.  He reassured and strengthened me on my search journey.
     In June 2002, I wrote a newspaper Letter to Editor pertaining to adoption and foster-care.  Surprisingly, the letter printed on July 3, 2002.  Two weeks later, I received a note from another private investigator.
 
    “I am certified by the Court to open sealed adoption files...and I would be happy to assist you,” she wrote.  Emphatically, I said, “yes.”  I went to her home to formalize a fifth search on July 23, 2002, which was three days prior to my birthday.
     This time felt different.  Within three weeks, I received an email from the investigator, indicating she located my birthmother and her siblings.  Excited, I quickly and prayerfully wrote introductory letters to the seven family members, addressed and mailed them. 
     Within days, I received an email on August 12, 2002 from Ann’s youngest sister.  My aunt wrote in her excitement, “I ‘m shaking so bad my fingers are hitting more than one key at a time.”  She, too, had wanted to search for me, but never knew where to start.
     We exchanged several emails while getting acquainted; we agreed to meet three days later at my aunt’s home for dinner.  I could hardly wait!
     Dinner was Thursday evening, August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Following dinner, my aunt presented me with a family tree portfolio made especially for me.  It contained a picture of my birthmother.  Silent, I stared at the person who gave birth to me: Ann.
     We discussed the possibility of meeting Ann over the next several months.  However, her overall mental health and welfare was a very important family concern, making it difficult and questionable for me to meet her.  Yet, I understood and shared those same   concerns.
     Additionally, I learned of several stories of Ann’s most difficult journey through life.  Ann was born on June 21, 1934 at home in Aberdeen, South Dakota.  She
 
hit her head on the bedpost after passing through the birth canal.  This injury caused symptoms similar to epilepsy.
     Another story: Ann fell and injured her head during school recess.  Symptoms began which suggested she was “different.”  Ann was also in a state mental hospital due to her condition.
     At age 20, Ann was supposed to baby-sit for a family of three young children.  The father picked her up for the babysitting.  Returning her home that evening, he committed an ugly, grievous, solitary act of rape, abusing her and taking away her most precious innocence.
     Consequently, Ann became pregnant following the rape incident; she completed her pregnancy at a local Salvation Army maternity home.  “Baby Mark” was born on July 26, 1955.
     Finally, the day and time had arrived for me to meet my birthmother, Ann.  Anxious and overflowing with excitement, I met her during a small family gathering for pizza and ice cream at her brother’s home.
     I desired to see Ann and greet her with a warm, loving hug.  Instead, I walked through the front door, quickly shook her hand and sat down.
     It was special being in Ann’s company.  She appeared simple in her own unique way.  She was quiet, tall and slender.  She knew me only as a “friend of the family.”  I watched her as she ate the delicious ice cream one spoonful after the other.
    
 
 
Ann lives with two other women in a comfortable group home.  While she once recalled “being pregnant,” she does not have immediate knowledge that she is a mother, grand-mother, and great-grandmother.
     I am grateful my birth family welcomed me.  I am thankful for my “Mother,” Ann!  I am also thankful for my wife, Donna, and our four children, extended family and friends; all have stood with me in prayer and loving support.
     My search journey included patience, perseverance, and prayer, sprinkled with faith hope, and love.  Thank you God for the gift of adoption!

How Do We Get There? What Is Our Plan?

Edited: I've added a "missing" piece to in bold, making article complete. 

                                                                     # #


The goal is not only to restrict abortion, or even to make it illegal, but actually make it an unthinkable – and not occurring.   “How do we get there?” and “What is our plan?”  It seems Insurmountable!
Forty years of abortion – 40 years of killing our own flesh and blood – the unborn.  Since the U.S. Supreme Court abortion decision of January 22, 1973, states have been trying to restrict abortion ever since.   Now is the time to end abortion.
Scripture teaches us there are many gifts but all of the same Spirit.  The head cannot exist without the body.  The body is a whole with many but equal parts.  Again, I ask the questions, “How do we get there?  What is our plan?” Scripture points the way.
 
 It is therefore important to always pray – as it is our communication with God – seeking His grace and blessing, courage, and boldness going forward in our quest. We should always support and encourage one another, realizing the gifts God has given us – how do we use our gifts to defend innocent human life against the mentality of abortion? 
 
Newborns experience rapid growth and development in their first year: they cradle, stretch their arms, legs, fingers and toes, drink/eat only mother’s milk or warm bottled milk, smile, sit up, crawl, and learn to walk one foot in front of the other, falling numerous times along the way.
So it is with the pro-life movement. The incremental one-step-at-a-time or baby steps is how I think we will end this scourge.  This is not to say that I do not want this nightmare to end right now.  I do!  Ending this horrific mass slaughter is with me nearly every moment of my life.
But, change most often occurs over a period of time, not immediately. Sure, there are exceptions. As a rule though, we are a people of peaks and valleys along many winding roads.  Current public opinion continues to suggest we are indeed advancing toward the prize, but slowly, and only with a slight and changing majority.
 
Life at Conception Act declares personhood to the unborn as set forth by the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.  Parental Notification and/or Parental Consent laws may also prove effective, although may or may not be seen as strong compared to Life at Conception Act. Further still, legislation is being advanced to restrict abortion of those preborn children capable of experiencing fetal pain and Fetal Pain.  Then there are efforts at both state and national levels to Defund Planned Parenthood – cutting off the blood money available to Planned Parenthood to execute the preborn.  All of these legislative attempts have degrees of merit.
 (Yet), prayer, peaceful vigil, legislating and restricting abortion, working at a PRC is falling short of our goal. Why?  I say that because although many are indeed active in and supporting pro-life activities, too many of us are passively “sitting on the sidelines.” I understand we are a busy people, especially those with families.
But, are we serious about ending abortion?  If we are, then our streets surrounding every abortion facility should be overflowing with prayer warriors 365 days a year, prayerfully demanding: “no more abortion!”

The killing of our unborn brothers and sisters never stops, except possibly on Sunday.  Pastors, we yearn for your visible and pastoral example.  Teachers, doctors, lawyers, parents, children, grandparents, fire and police personnel, we need you.  The unborn need YOU!
 I am grateful for and acknowledge all that is currently being accomplished - all those who are presently in the trenches to restore a deeper respect for all human life and ending abortion now.
Collectively, these are many of the incremental steps we need to take.  All of them, mingled together, sprinkled with God’s grace and power of the Holy Spirit. We need each other, including our churches and pastors, using the gifts God has provided, together with each of our ministries. Each piece of pro-life legislation, each prayer, each hour of vigil at the abortion mill, or working at a Pregnancy Resource Center are all steps in the right direction, furthering our conscience awareness of the unborn, and the fatal effect abortion inflicts upon it.  United in Christ’s love, we can, we will stop the madness of abortion.
Pray to end Abortion:

Now is the Time



I’m sickened, disgusted, and angry!  As I view the graphic pictures and read the associated stories of abortionists Kermit Gosnell and, Douglas Karpen, and again here,  I nearly weep. I cannot believe what is before me.  It’s like a nightmare.  But it isn’t.  It is real! The images of the tiny infants were once breathing, kicking, struggling to live after botched abortions; the back of their necks then slit and “snipped” to cause immediate death - it’s too much!  “Oh, dear Jesus, what can I do to help end this evil?”

Since the end of our 2013 spring 40 Days for Life Campaign, my heart has been stirred.  Intensifying this movement of heart, co-writers, Michelle McIntyre and R. Clayton Strang at Life of the Party blog have published several thought-provoking and moving articles.  Abortion has been “legal” in America since the January 22, 1973 U.S Supreme Court abortion decision.  Abortionists killed an estimated 55 million unborn children over the past 40 years.  Twice Washington State voted to give thumbs up to this barbaric act, abortion.  Really!  “Are we serious about eradicating abortion? I wonder, ARE we?”

How long are we going to allow neighborhood “health clinics” like Planned Parenthood to slaughter our unborn sisters and brothers?  A recent National Right to Life survey found 55% of Americans did not know Planned Parenthood performs abortions.   As a people, “we don’t get it, yet.”  Although the high profile cases of Gosnell and Karpen are receiving Internet visibility, abortion occurs daily in cities across America.  “Seriously, we just do not get it!” But wait…

To be fair, I need to acknowledge and thank the great work hundreds of pro-life ministries involving thousands of saints who have already been defending the unborn, while supporting their moms, too.  In no specific order, pregnancy resource centers (PRC), Pregnancy Aid, Angelorum/Next Step Pregnancy Services, Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, Prolife Washington, Human Life of Washington, Seattle Helpers, Project Rachel, Silent No More Awareness, Gabriel Project, 4US, 40 Days for Life, Priests for Life, and a multitude of fraternal organizations, such as the Knights of Columbus, Catholic Daughters of America, and Concerned Women of America.

What can I do, what can we do to help end this evil? Pray to the Holy Spirit for guidance and an open heart.  Contact a local pregnancy resource center or pro-life ministry.  Pray in front of the nearest abortion facility that the doctors and staff have a change of heart and leave the abortion industry.  Pray for those who enter these health clinics seeking contraceptives or abortion; pray they also have a change of heart.

"Now is the time."  Now is the time to end abortion!  Holy Spirit, touch and move our hearts.  Awaken us! Help us end abortion today.  Thank you, Jesus.

Wearing a Rosary


Wearing a Rosary

On many occasions, I have seen people wearing a rosary.  The first thing that comes to mind is dis-respect. It appears as though the rosary is worn like jewelry. I realize this may be somewhat judgemental on my part....yet, how many ARE wearing the rosary as fashion?  Lately, I have observed numerous actors/characters on television sporting a rosary.  Also, wearing the rosary is cultural -  a sign of an individuals love of Jesus's mother, Mary, our Blessed Mother. Further, I have worn the rosary myself during brief periods of distress.  It is worn with great respect and becomes a "living prayer" of sorts.

WHY? (extended thought)



Why did you do it?  Because it is ok…

“When asked why Williams had killed the baby, Cross answered:

Because the baby, I guess, because the baby was moving and breathing. And she (saw) Dr. Gosnell do it so many times, I guess she felt, you know, she can do it. It’s okay.”


Gosnell Murder Trial Jury Wants More Info on Babies He Killed

And then,

Why Kermit Gosnell should be acquitted by Kristen Walker Hatten

After 40 years, we as a society have become accustomed to abortion.  The killing of our unborn brothers and sisters has been “approved” by America. Yes, countless individuals, groups, organizations, states, and many politicians have been working and praying for the end of this scourge (with many successes), but still, we “live” with abortion.  Maybe it’s true…maybe Gosnell should be set free.  As a nation, we have NOT stood up boldly, we have not consistently prayed, we have not offered to help our local Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC), or prayed at the local abortion center.  It has not been an individual or a national priority to end the killing!  Unless…

The time is now!  Ask the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to lead and guide you in utilizing your gifts to do your part.  Pray daily for an end to abortion and pray at the local abortion mill (40 Days for Life) and (Helpers of God’s Precious Infants).  Contact a PRC and offer your help; donate diapers, baby clothing, toys, or money here and here.  Write letters to editor.  Be informed on local and national legislation and politicians who are truly pro-life with a burning desire to end abortion (Life of the Party and Abortion in Washington). Always vote pro-life!

What’s it going to be?  Will you commit today to help end abortion?   

 

WHY? Because it is ok.


Why did you do it?  Because it is ok…

55% Americans Ignorant Planned Parenthood Abortions




Shockingly, Planned Parenthood performed 333, 964 abortions in 2011, which is greater than 27% of all U.S abortions.  Yet, LifeNews.com reports only 45% of Americans know of this violence Planned Parenthood inflicts against unborn children.  Really! Abortion has killed over 55 million U.S. preborn infants since 1973; Planned Parenthood commits the majority – and continues as the (abortion) industry leader (slaughtering our infants in the womb).  Wake up &  stand up America!  The time is now! Stand up for life!

Maverick Blogs: Ending Abortion (now!)


Maverick Bloggers: End Abortion (now)!

It is a privilege and honor to know the authors of two outstanding local blogs in Washington. While you may already follow their blogs, I encourage readers to not only continue supporting them in prayer, but equally important, take action. Ultimately, in order to end abortion now, they seek your active participation.  They write to inspire others to act – in accordance with God’s will; better yet, his command – to love our neighbors, as ourselves, including our preborn children.

I first met Michelle McIntire in fall of 2007.  A visionary, she spoke to our church and invited us to take an active part in the now international 40 Days for Life campaign.  Michelle, and a few other committed volunteers, stepped out in total faith and trust in God, organized and began Everett’s first 40 Days for Life campaign – a campaign of 40 days of prayer, fasting, peaceful vigil, and outreach to end abortion.

The blog, Life of the Party educates, facilitates, and inspires others within the political system to end abortion as quickly as possible. “Life” is paramount; “Life before politics”. This also includes being pro-active on current legislation.

Michelle’s current initiative: locate one key person in each of Washington’s legislative districts to regularly contact local legislators on issues of life and to contribute to the blog.  Life of the Party now has a second author, R. Clayton Strang.  An excellent addition to Life of the Party, Mr. Strang brings an uncompromising sense of urgency in ending abortion today.

Jonathan Bloedow and Mary Emanuel are co-writers for Abortion In Washington. Unapologetic and fearless, since 2004, they ruthlessly investigate and report on Washington’s abortion industry, especially Planned Parenthood, which local media should report, but shamefully do not. 

The abortion industry prides itself claiming abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. While it may be legal, it certainly is not rare and definitely not safe. Within approximately an 18 month timeframe (2011/2012), AIW investigated and reported that three medical emergencies occurred at Planned Parenthood clinics: Kenmore, Seattle, and a 16-year old minor in Everett. Safe, don’t think so…

Abortion In Washington follows Planned Parenthood funding sources like the Medicaid family planning Take Charge program.  Why would a state have a dedicated family planning program (for birth control)? 

Legislation is another aspect of AIW’s blog reporting. Most recently, life (begins) at conception, parental notification, and abortion insurance mandate legislation received high visibility. Speaking of legislation, Jonathan is soliciting pro-life individuals to represent their legislative districts from across the state – to be informed and to build a pro-life network of dedicated persons to regularly contact their local legislators on pro-life bills.  Jonathan and Mary were both active in our Everett 40 Days for Life vigil, kickoff, and closing events.

As an adoptee conceived in rape, active in the pro-life movement since before 1973, I have felt a sense of urgency to continue praying and working for an end to abortion in our midst.  I hope you will continue to follow Life of the Party, Abortion In Washington. I pray the Lord will bless you and your family.

What Will it Take?


If abortion is the killing of our unborn children, which it is, then how should we go about ending abortion today?  Are we doing what is takes?  What will it take? 

Are we doing enough -  are we honestly committed to ending abortion ASAP?

Is Fr. Frank Pavone, Director of Priests for Life, correct when he says, " abortion will only end when America 'sees' abortion for what it is."

Maybe it is time to "step-up" the game. If so, how?   What do YOU think?

“YOU ARE LOVED BY GOD”

SEATTLE MEN’S CONFERENCE –Saturday, March, 2, 2013

 It was the first of its kind here in Western Washington was held at St. Mary of the Valley in Monroe.  Days earlier, registrations numbered about 200, but Saturday, Fr. Bloom said 500 men were in attendance.  Clearly, there is a need for Catholic men to gather together in prayer and worship, and to learn their spiritual calling as men who serve, protect, and defend…to serve, protect, and defend women, life, and religious liberty.

Speakers for the day: Archbishop Peter Sartain: You are Loved by God; Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, Men as protectors, defenders; Fr. Ed White, Men as leaders in solidarity; and Fr. Phil Bloom, pastor, St. Mary of the Valley, gracious host.  The day’s activities: continental breakfast, four primary talks, lunch, confession, adoration, music, Mass, followed by spaghetti dinner, and a Shroud of Turin presentation. Additional presentations were given by 4US, pro-life organization raising funds for ultrasounds in Pregnancy Resource Centers;  Knights of Columbus State Council, a Catholic Men’s organization. Everett 40 Days for Life and Helpers of God's Precious Infants were also represented as was the Family Life Institute.

Before Someone is Killed

To all media, especially to Investigators:
Before someone is killed:
When will you begin to investigate Everett Planned Parenthood, 1509 - 32nd Street, for the killing of our unborn children each Wednesday (surgical abortion)? Is Everett Planned Parenthood safe? What is being done with the unborn human remains - where and how are they disposed? Are the women told of the abortion specifics and how the child will be killed? Following abortion, are women provided proper time for recovery or left to go on their own? What happened to the woman who left Planned Parenthood in the aid car a couple years ago? What are the women told of the development of the unborn child prior to an abortion? Are they allowed to see the ultrasound prior to an abortion? Are the women fully informed about adoption? How much does it cost for a surgical abortion? Does Planned Parenthood perform late-term abortions? How much does a chemical abortion cost? Please tell the local public specifically what happens to the unborn infant during an abortion. Inform the public about what happens to post-abortive women and their difficulty with depression, extreme anxiety, broken relationships, unable to conceive due to damage caused during the abortion.
The above is a story that needs to be told and I pray you will investigate and tell of the damage abortion is causing to our community here in Everett and Western Washington.

America - How Many Abortions is Enough


AMERICA – HOW MANY ABORTIONS IS ENOUGH?
PLANNED PARENTHOOD – THE UGLY TRUTH 

Ed Mohs

Planned Parenthood – Marysville Health Center, 10210 State Ave.

Planned Parenthood – Everett, 1509 – 32nd Street

Abortion: the direct killing of the human unborn child before birth.

55 million abortions performed in U.S.A. since January 22, 1973.
Human Life Alliance – 2013 supplement issue documents the following:


American Life League: Planned Parenthood is responsible for killing 300,000 children annually.

-Operation Rescue: 16 abortion related medical emergencies reported between 1/2011 and 10/2012, including 3 in Western Washington:

--Abortion in Washington blog notes medical emergencies: 3/18/2011(Everett); 10/3/2011 (Kenmore); 10/25/2012 (Seattle/Madison).

--Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion chain commits 300,000 abortions per year.

--Live Action: documents Planned Parenthood responsible for covering up sexual abuse of young girls.

Life News: 2/8/2013, Abortion practitioner botched abortion kills 29 year old, 33 weeks pregnant woman, Germantown, Maryland.

SilentNoMoreAwareness: Post Abortive Women report: alcohol and drug abuse, thoughts of suicide, severe regret following abortion, severe bleeding, pain, failed marriages and relationships, emotional numbness, damaged cervix, punctured uterus, unable to conceive again., etc.

Will you help stop abortion at the Marysville Health Center (Planned Parenthood) located at 10210 State Avenue and Everett Planned Parenthood, 1509 - 32nd Street, Everett?  How many more young women will be injured or die?  How many more infants will be killed in Marysville or Everett?  Are the Marysville Health Center and Everett Planned Parenthood safe and clean?

SB5156 Parental Notification prior to an Abortion

SB5166 Parental Notification

As an adult adoptee who was conceived in rape, I urge you to vote FOR the Parental Notification Bill prior to a minor (under 18) obtaining an abortion.  Since a minor in Washington State must have their parent or guardians permission before obtaining piercings (especially simple ear piercings), it makes reasonalble common sense to requre minors to obtain parental notification before an abortion. After all, abortion is a life-changing experience - an experience that frequently has documented consequences: physical, mental, social and spiritual.
Please vote FOR 5156 - Parental Notification before minors receive abortion.

Sincerely
Ed Mohs

Washington State March For Life 2013


Several thousand pro-life Washingon State March for Life participants gathered from across the state recognizing the 40th Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court 1973 abortion decision, which legalized abortion in America through all nine months of a woman's pregnancy. The awesome crowd filled the Capitol and Judicial building steps. It was the 35th year for the Olympia event. Over 55 million abortions have taken place in the U.S. since 1973.


Thank you pro-life legislators! Thanks to everyone who went to Olympia on January 22 to support Life!

Please contact your legislators to vote NO on SB5009 Reproductive Parity Act - abortion mandate; Vote YES on SB5156 and HB1257 Parental Notification; Yes on HB1259 Life Begins at Conception. According to Human Life of WA poll, 65% Washingtonians support parental notification.

Ed Mohs
