The 44th annual Nebraska Walk For Life is scheduled on January 27, 2018, beginning at 10:00 a.m. and concluding at 1:00 p.m.  The event is in Lincoln, NE, beginning on the north side of the State Capitol building at 14th and K Streets.  After a brief program, attendees will walk seven blocks to the UN-L Student Union for an indoor Keynote Speech (at approximately noon).  Pro-life info tables, food and drink will also be available.  The keynote speaker will be Ann McElhinney of "Gosnell," the book and movie.  "Gosnell" is the untold story of America's most prolific serial killer who ran an abortion facility in Philadelphia, PA.  Kermit Gosnell is now serving a life sentence in prison for manslaughter of a woman who sought an abortion and for infanticide of unborn babies whose spinal cords he snipped with scissors after he pulled them from the womb. Ann and her husband Phelim tell the story in their book and movie.  Parking is located to the east, south and west of the Capitol, as well as in downtown pay-for-parking garages and at meters.  Dress warmly and bring your family to this peaceful, legal pro-life witness event.  You may contact the sponsor, Nebraska Right to Life, with any questions at nebraskartl@gmail.com or call 402-318-8291.

Can You Help?

During this time of year, some organizations are conducting membership drives.  Of course it goes without saying that in order for organizations to thrive and continue to be strong, new members are needed.  BPPFL also would like to increase its membership.  Can you help?

Current BPPFL members can help by asking at least one other pro-life person to join our group.  There's a membership application form that can be found on our BPPFL website at www.businessandprofessionalpeopleforlife.com and membership forms will also be available at the next luncheon.  Please consider helping BPPFL grow and continue to be strong in the defense of human life.  THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO.


U.S. House Takes Action

Recently the U.S. House of Representatives took action to protect the unborn and passed a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of gestation.  The bill is called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  All three Nebraska Representatives voted for the ban.  Next stop for the bill is the U.S. Senate.


President's Message to the Membership 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in BPPFL,
Greetings as we are getting deep into the fall and ready to experience the Lord's beautiful artistry with the falling leaves and beautiful colors.  Even as we realize this we know that the sight of a newborn baby is even so much more beautiful and valuable.  Let us continue to put forth our best effort, as instruments of the Lord, to help stop as many abortions as possible.  May we do all in our God-enabled power to help establish a culture that recognizes the infinite dignity of all human life.

As part of this important mission, we strive to give confused and fearful young women the alternatives for keeping their living child in the womb so as to be born and cared for in the manner they choose, whether keeping the baby or placing for adoption.  Every child is wanted, not only by God who created it, but by loving people who want to raise the child in a loving manner.

Our speaker, Toni Clarke, Executive Director of Assure Women's Center, will give us insights on how we can, and do, provide for these babies and troubled women.  Assure helps women to carry the baby to birth, providing physical, emotional and spiritual assistance.  They provide what is needed to support the mother's decision to carry the baby to birth and properly raise the child.  We do not merely say "don't act on abortion" but direct women to places that provide the means to help make this possible.  Hope to see all of you at our luncheon on November 2nd at the Garden Cafe at 11:30.  We assure you a good time.

God Bless,
John H. Kellogg, Jr.
President of BPPFL
