WE MUST DEFEND LIFE IN ROCKFORD

ProLifeCorner – 1-15- 2017 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – This January is the five year anniversary of the closing of the Rockford abortion mill – and abortion supporters will be marching in Rockford.

On Saturday, January 21st, a so-called ‘Women’s March Rockford’ will take place in our city with one of its major goals being the promotion of abortion.  This march in Rockford is a coordinated event with similar marches taking place in many cities across the country.  They will be pushing a leftist political agenda, promoting abortion, and trying to protect Planned Parenthood from budget cuts. Some of the sponsoring pro-abortion organizations for these marches include: Continue reading

We Lost A Great Friend

R-Bradys-200x (1)We Lost A Great Friend

ProLifeCorner.com – 9-4-2016 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – Words cannot express the love and friendship the Rockford pro-life community has for Don and Mary Brady.  For decades they took care of pro-lifers every day the Rockford abortion mill was open.  They opened their hearts and the Rockford Labor News building they owned to help save babies from abortion. Don and Mary provided a warm smile, words of encouragement, coffee, donuts, and shelter from the heat, rain, and cold to people in need.

Don has passed away after years of loving his family, protecting the unborn, and serving Jesus Christ. : Funeral MASS will be on Tuesday, September 6, at 11:00 am at St. Bridget’s Church, 600 Clifford Avenue, Loves Park, IL with visitation [at St. Bridget’s] 1 Hour before Mass.

Preaching and Saving Souls

Preaching  and Saving Souls

Dan Holman has spent decades preaching God’s truth to a world that would rather listen to the culture of death.

Below is a modern folk song about this man who knows exposing evil can be one of our greatest acts of love.

Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will stand for me against those who practice iniquity?  Psalm 94:16  Continue reading

Illinois Bishops “Neutral” On Abortion

Illinois Bishops “Neutral” On Abortion

ProLifeCorner– 8-1-2016 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – In a shocking Raunner 300xdevelopment the Illinois Conference of Catholic Bishops have declared themselves “neutral” on a controversial bill that would force pro-life medical professionals and pregnancy care centers to tell mothers about the “benefits” of abortion and give mothers information on where and how to end the life of her child in an abortion clinic.

Pro-lifers have worked very hard to defeat SB 1564 since it was passed in May but the Illinois Bishops, by taking a “neutral” position, have essentially sided with Planned Parenthood and the Illinois abortion lobby in criminalizing any medical professional or care center worker who refuses to send a mother to an abortion clinic. PDF This Link

SB 1564 also mandates that health care professionals and care centers tell mothers of the “benefits” of abortion. The Bishops statement says about this mandate,  we “Would rather not alter the law in any way.”  The Rockford Pro-Life Initiative is trying to figure out what the “benefits” are of the crushing of the skull, stopping the beating heart, and the brutal dismemberment of a little girl or boy in their mothers womb, but the Bishops of Illinois seem to have found something they find beneficial about this.

You Need To Make Calls Today

ProLifeCorner – 6 27 26 – by staff – The following is a critical alert for immediate action!!  Please read the short note and call asking for this bill to be VETOED.  Thank you.

WE NEED TO MAKE CALLS TODAY.

Last week one of the worst pro-abortion bills in Illinois history was sent to Governor Rauner for his signature or veto. He is expected to take action by WEDNESDAY on this bill. It’s SB-1564, the bill that would force pro-life physicians, nurses and even pregnancy centers to make abortion referrals. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are pulling out all the stops to get Gov. Rauner to sign the bill, and my sources tell me that their calls and emails are starting to run even with OURS. That means we have to call AND email Gov. Rauner again RIGHT NOW and tell him to VETO SB-1564! First, here are the numbers to call — please call BOTH:      CHICAGO OFFICE: 312-814-2121     SPRINGFIELD OFFICE: 217-782-0244 Continue reading

Religious Freedom / Pro-Life Rally Rockford Illinois

Religious Freedom / Pro-Life Rally Rockford Illinois

ProLifeCorner-  Rockford Il.-

On Monday June 13th, Christians from Winnebago County came together to pray outside of the Winnebago County Health Department that fired Pediatric Nurse Sandra Mendoza because of her refusal to refer mothers to abortion clinics.  This is another attack on religious freedom and human life by government officials who believe they are above the moral law.

This rally had four goals:

  1. It was a sign of faith, love, and trust by Christians in Jesus Christ.
  1. A show of support for Sandra Mendoza.
  1. It was an appeal through prayer and public witness to the Winnebago County Health Department to stop the immoral and deadly practice of sending mothers and children to abortion mills. 
  1. A prayerful and public stand for religious freedom and against anti-Christian bigotry.

This Should Have Happened at 10th and Broadway Rockford

This Should Have Happened at 10th and Broadway Rockford

ProLifeCorner – Rockford Illinois- 1-12-2016 – by Editor – This picture is worth a thousand words and is what should happen to every abortion mill that is still standing. The powers to be in Rockford Illinois relieved Wayne Birmingham250xWebster of a large liability by buying the Northern Illinois Women’s Center. The slaughterhouse at 10th and Broadway has now become a liability to the taxpaying citizens of Rockford. It is the law abiding, tax paying citizens of Rockford who will be forced to bring this now closed clinic up to code; code that N.I.W.C. should have been held responsible for over 30 years ago.

Tearing down the killing center is a most appropriate way to acknowledge the infamous Roe v Wade decision that allowed these killing centers to open in the first place.  Each building annihilated will save the lives of countless unborn babies.  Let us pray in 2016 that more of these murderous places will close during the year.  Continue reading
