In the fall session, a bill may come before the state house which calls for giving
In the absence of such a process,
You can assist greatly in this process by finding out where your own state rep, and your own state senator stand on this issue. Please forward that information back to me - once you have confirmed it.
Twenty-seven other states have already done so. Are you aware that Pa already allows same-sex couples to adopt? We know that our Defense of Marriage Act is simply not enough to protect us from a judge mandating a redefinition of marriage here in
Please take a look. We are launching a very aggressive campaign to create awareness that marriage desperately needs to be protected.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration. Please forward to friends.
2. Message from Peg Luksik
To help us to build our own lobbying skills and to easily teach others, I have developed a web site that includes short downloadable videos on both the mechanics of being a citizen activist and on the issues themselves. Each clip is available for $1.00 so people can access and learn. I invite you to both use the site, and if you like it, to share it with others so we can create a vibrant citizens network of educated pro-life, pro-family activists. Here's the link http://www.americancitizensacademy.com
Hope you like it. Have a lovely day.
Peg Luksik and I have started a new project, the American Citizen's Academy. Our focus is to use Peg's experience with communications, debate, and lobbying to train conservative activists, using the Internet and seminars across the state, on how to effectively communicate our ideas. We will be stressing the logical connection between fiscal and social conservatism using online videos and weekly articles from Peg and a variety of other authors. Please take a moment to stop by the web site, http://www.americancitizensacademy.com, and purchase a video (they're only $1.00 for a 15-minute video).
Your feedback on the site and the content is welcome, and please be sure to tell your conservative friends about this new resource.

3. 40 Days for Life - Upcoming National Project.
Click - http://www.40daysforlife.com to get all the information.
Basically the idea is to be praying at the abortion mills for 40 days (very scriptural) to end this holocaust. 40 Days For Life is planned for 9/26/07 to 11/4/07.
Everybody can do something.
Laureen has volunteered to be the coordinator. She needs help, and the moms and babies need all of us. Please respond to her e-mail. Please pass this on to your own e-mail lists of pro-life people. "Is anyone out there?" by Laureen Bodnar. I would like to get in contact with everyone in our area. If you are logged in to the

Reservations are being accepted at 412-531-9272 for $40 each or a table of 10 for $350 - you don't want to miss hearing this great speaker and meeting your pro-life friends. To support PCUC, a banquet book is being prepared - ads are being taken by sending the info to PCUC, 3050 Pioneer Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15226 - Whole page (8 1/2 x 11) for $150, half page $100, quarter page $65, business card $40 , patron $10 - Please help us with this effort by contacting business, professionals and all who would like us to know of their pro-life commitment.
5. Life Chain, 1st Sunday in October
The annual Life Chain is a once a year witness for life to tell the people of our country that we've had enough of the killing of the unborn and mental, physical and spiritual damage to women. We will stand along streets and lanes, on Sunday, October 7 for one hour. For more info, call Mary Catherine Scanlon 412-781-6550.
6. When the PA General Assembly resumes on Sept. 17 one of the pieces of legislation that will be on the calendar is HB 288 - this legislation would require all hospitals and medical personnel to distribute emergency contraception to rape victims. Both the drug manufacturer and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) state that EC can act as an abortifacient by altering the lining of the uterine wall, so a new human being cannot implant. We don't want amendments - HB 288 must be defeated.
7. To contact your elected officials click http://www.congress.org and type in your zip code to send a message to any of your elected officials - federal, state or local. Great site - we have given you materials in this e-mail to contact your elected representatives and let them know you are pro-life - you don't want your tax money spent on abortion or any abortion provider as Planned Parenthood.
8. PCUC web page - click http://www.pcuc.org for all the latest pro-life information - Newsletters are listed - the July-Aug. will be posted shortly.
9. Contacting Wawa is an important life-saving act. If enough of us make our viewpoint known, Wawa will stop funding Planned parenthood. Please send a note RIGHT NOW. For those wishing to contact Wawa (see below), click on this link. http://www.wawa.com/customerrelations/cr-home.asp
Points you may wish to include:
1) You are a regular shopper at Wawa, and buy there frequently.
2) You have just learned that Wawa supports Planned Parenthood - the largest abortion provider in the world.
3) You can no longer spend your money there, knowing that some of it will be used to kill innocent babies, because of Wawa's sponsorship of Planned Parenthood.
4) Ask them to notify you once they have stopped funding Planned Parenthood so that you can resume your shopping at their stores.
WAWA is now contributing to Planned Parenthood.
Life Dynamics just released the July 2007 Corporate Boycott list. Wawa has been added -- PLEASE contact them and share your disappointment. Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion provider.
* In 2006 Planned Parenthood was responsible for 7208 abortions in
* On June 30, 2003 Planned Parenthood's assets totaled more than $824.5 million!!
Really, Planned Parenthood is a business, a profitable one that does not need funding from WAWA. Please Boycott WAWA until they make a change in their policy. THIS IS POSSIBLE - If pro-life people contact WAWA they will make a change!!
