Why Join Philly Alive?
The World Meeting of Families proclaims, "Love is our Mission, the Family Fully Alive." However, Planned Parenthood (PP) leads the attack on this mission in the Philadelphia area and throughout America. PP's abortionists kill approximately 350 children each week in the Philadelphia Archdiocese.
Beginning on July 14, 2015, a series of undercover videos has exposed PP's leading role in harvesting the organs of children killed by abortion and selling these organs for huge profit. These videos have shown that PP's abortionists cut open the face of newborn children, while they are living, in order to retrieve "fresh brain tissue."
Philly Alive provides a wonderful opportunity for Catholics and other Christians, at the local and national levels, to express our resistance to PP and publicly proclaim, CHILDREN ARE A GIFT OF GOD, NOT A SOURCE OF BODY PARTS!
Mercy comes from the Hebrew word rekhem, which means womb. Through this definition, our religious ancestors recognized children in the womb as the most vulnerable and dependent members of the human family. We believe that today's Christians should recognize children in the womb as most in need of Mercy.
