The Enormous Loss of Life During This Time is Cause for Grief Not Celebration



WASHINGTON DC— This weekend, Planned Parenthood will commemorate its 100th  anniversary dating back to the 1916 opening of Margaret Sanger’s first clinic in New York City. Originally known as the American Birth Control League, renamed Planned Parenthood in 1942, the organization has evolved into a billion dollar business, and is the single largest provider of abortions in the United States.

“The 100th anniversary of our nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, is a somber reminder of the work we have ahead of us in building a culture of life. Since 1973, over 57 million Americans have been lost to abortion, with many mothers suffering regret after making such a choice. Planned Parenthood has been the primary means for this tremendous loss in our country.

While some will celebrate on Sunday, we instead grieve the fact that approximately one sixth of our nation is not with us today because of the very work of Planned Parenthood. We will also use this anniversary to redouble our educational efforts to show the attractive and empowering truth that being pro-life is pro-woman, and, unlike Margaret Sanger, we know that each person- regardless of race, special needs, or “being planned”- has inherent dignity from the moment of conception.” said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund.

The March for Life in Washington, D.C. began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world.  The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand.

Jeanne Monahan-Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund, is available for interviews. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Catherine Bradley at or (703) 739-5920.

    This is a heart breaking truth that so very many lives have been tragically lost to the abortion crisis. Just how much the church needs to wake up and our great nation needs to repent from this tremendous bloodshed. It is a great stain on our nation, the lives of these innocent children, whose blood has been shed. O America, how great is thy stain, the blood cries out to me, the Almighty God of Heaven, O nation, how great is thy stain, O great bloodthirsty land, O great church, when will you wake from your slumber, O great sleeping giant, and repent for your sins of passivity and ignorance and quieting your ears from hearing their 57 million little screams as they go to their deaths, quietly, behind closed doors, silent their screams are, but not to My Ears, says the Lord of Hosts. No, their cry is loud and piercing to My Ears, says the Lord God Almighty, my cry goes out to you, O great nation, and hear My heart cry for the lives of these innocent babes, o mighty sleeping giant, the church awake from her slumber and repent, for the window is closing and my time is drawing closer and closer to the time when I will return and judge this great and mighty nation for her sins of bloodshed, and the church for her idleness. Speak up be a voice for those being led to the slaughter, rescue them, wisdom speaks in the public square, she cries out for justice and truth. 9Cry out, church, for the lives of these innocent ones before the time comes for Me to return and I will judge you for your lack of concern as they were led to the slaughter and you knew, and did not stand up for them. Stand up for mothers and fathers who are being fed lies from the culture and from the abortion industry. Educate them. Speak the truth in love. My love and compassion can conquer all fear and discouragement the parents may face in the decision to keep their baby. Speak the truth in love to them stop this incredible slaughter by being a voice for them. For Lo, I am coming quickly but has my Bride made herself ready for Lo, I come as a thief in the night to those foolish virgins who are unprepared, but the wise virgins have gathered their oil, and have made themselves ready to meet me at my coming, therefore be like the wise and gather your oil from My Holy Spirit to prepare for my coming. Ask and pray for my oil to come fill your hearts. I will not leave you lacking. My love for you abounds. Never cease to thank Me and praise Me. I love you, my Holy Bride. From the heart of God to you, my precious Bride.
