I’m sure you know why the 40 Days for Life people ask you to pray for the providers at Planned Parenthood. Yes, it’s because they work for America’s largest abortion provider. And it’s because they are the ones who advance PP’s campaign to undermine our children’s morality.
But this video will reveal a side of Planned Parenthood you may not be aware of, and how a familiarity with abortion can turn a human being into a monster, blind to the coldness and horror of dismembering the tiny body of an unborn human child.
In this undercover video, you’ll see Planned Parenthood Senior Medical Director Dr. Deborah Nucatola coolly discussing the giant abortion corporation’s side business of providing aborted baby body parts to buyers from the medical research industry.
The conversation took place at a restaurant over wine and lunch. Actors posing as potential buyers elicited Dr. Nucatola’s comments on the economics of selling fetal tissue and the legality of the business, usually handled by the local PP affiliates since the national headquarters’ own corporate counsel doesn’t want to touch it.
And listen to what she says about moving the fetus to a breech position for the abortion so the most desirable organs — little hearts and livers — don’t get damaged during the process. It sounds a lot like partial-birth abortion, doesn’t it? A crime in this country!
Horrendous. Pray for Nucatola — and all of them at Planned Parenthood.
Full transcript.of the conversation.
The annual 4th of July morning of prayer for Life and for America was held at the Marian Shrine (The Salesian National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians) at Stony Point yesterday. The Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament was followed by Mass at noon. Concelebrants were Fr. Brendan Gormley, of St. Barnabas in the Bronx, and Fr. Nicholas Callahan, formerly of St. Catherine’s in Blauvelt and now studying canon law in Rome. While serving in Rockland, both priests were active in the prolife movement here.
Also part of the morning of prayer were Fr. John Palatucci and seminarian John Wilson from St. Paul’s in Congers. Mr. Wilson is slated to be ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of New York next year.
In his homily, Fr. Brendan noted that the greatest challenge of our spiritual life is to “become who we are” — and that is the Body of Christ. Nobody’s quite there yet, he said, but the way to acheive this goal is to give God permission to take over and lead us — by prayer, fasting, and giving up some of the harmless things that nevertheless distract us from Him.
Likewise, with America, Fr. Brendan continued. It is our great and beloved country, but it’s not perfect either, having moved God aside to allow secularism to substitute for God’s truth.
But in spite of our country’s failings — among which are the 53 million unborn children who have been have been aborted since 1973 — we must remember that God is still in charge and that He will triumph, he said.
Keeping in mind the two great miracles of God’s love for us, his resurrection to new life and the gift of Himself through the Eucharist, and with the help of his faithful mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, we can become the people we were called to be — and the nation we were meant to be, Father Brendan concluded.
A morning of prayer for life and for America will be held at the Marian Shrine in Stony Point on July 4. Fathers Brendan Gormley, John Palatucci, and Nicholas Callahan will lead the prayers and offer Mass.
10:00 a.m. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, rosary, and prayer
12:00 p.m. Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Although the New York State legislative session came to a close without a vote on assisted suicide legislation, the threat is far from over. When a bill does not come up for a vote it is not by luck: concerned citizens communicating with legislators, grassroots mobilization, and lobbying are essential.
NYS Right to Life worked actively to oppose this legislation: we ran radio ads in key districts, our Lobby for Life Day featured a speaker addressing the dangers of assisted suicide, we alerted grassroots supporters far and wide, and hired extra staff to be at the Capitol during the crucial final weeks of the legislative session.
Thank you for responding to our alerts and contacting your representatives. Your calls, emails, letters, and sounding the alarm via social media made a difference. The vulnerable whose lives are at stake cannot afford for us to be silent: thank you for standing up and making your voice heard!
“Since everything is related, concern for the protection of nature is also incompatible with the justification of abortion. How can we genuinely teach the importance of concern for other vulnerable beings, however troublesome or inconvenient they may be, if we fail to protect a human embryo, even when its presence is uncomfortable and creates difficulties? If personal and social sensitivity towards the acceptance of the new life is lost, then other forms of acceptance that are valuable for society also wither away (120).”
“To blame population growth instead of extreme and selective consumerism on the part of some, is one way of refusing to face the issues (50).”
— Pope Francis, Laudato Si, June 18, 2015
The bill to legalize physician-assisted suicide in New York is back.
We breathed a sigh of relief when its sponsor withdrew it a month ago, but now — here it is again, with a new sponsor, Republican Senator John Bonacic, who is from the Middletown area. And its supporters are planning to slip it through in the flurry of legislation that gets taken up in the last days of the session.
They actually have three days to accomplish this. The session ends June 17.
Hastened death is an unnecessary act of harm fraught with dangers. Please check out this message from New York State Right to Life about how this bill targets people at their most vulnerable time.
Right now, the Senate is adjourned and will reconvene on Monday, June 15. Please call today or Monday or send an email message over the weekend to your state senator and ask him to stand firm against this bill which asks our doctors to kill. Vote NO on bill S-5814.
