Senator Fischer to Speak at Next BPPFL Luncheon

 
Nebraska United States Senator Deb Fischer will be our speaker at our next luncheon on Friday, September 14.  We're pleased and excited to have Senator Fischer speak to us about her pro-life work in the U.S. Senate. She stands for pro-life measures that will help both the unborn and women.  We know you'll be excited as well to hear her views on current pro-life developments. 

This luncheon promises to be very worthwhile for our members, guests and others.  The luncheon will be held in the Big Party Room at the Garden Cafe here in Omaha.  All the luncheon details, including how to make reservations, can be found below.  Please feel free to bring a friend to the luncheon.  SEE YOU THERE!


Annual BPPFL Prayer Service Scheduled for August 19 

We invite you to join us at the annual BPPFL prayer service at the Haven for Healing Memorial on the south side of St. Mary Magdaline Cemetery, located at 46th and Q Streets in Omaha.  Every year we gather there to pray for the unborn.  The prayer service will be held on Sunday, August 19 at 2:00 PM.  The prayer service will be short but hopefully powerful.  We urge you to attend and bring a friend with you.  THANK YOU.

President's Message to the Membership 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in BPPFL,
I hope all of you are having a great summer and having the opportunity to re-energize for the on-going effort against the "culture of death."  We see much outcry for the right of privacy for women to control their "right of reproduction" by any means, even if that means the right to kill the unborn baby within them.  Such a decision does not require or permit the father to have knowledge or a voice in the decision (even if it may be the woman's husband), and even if the statistics show that choosing abortion is very harmful to the mother herself (emotionally, physically or mentally).

Many are still advocating that the "right of choice" is fundamental even if that choice involves killing a human being, violating the rights of the other parent, and harming herself.  Many say "I would never have an abortion myself, but I would not interfere with another person's right to abort her child."  With that rationale, even if well intentioned or not thought out, it still causes the evil to take place.  Such rationale would eliminate most of the criminal law of the state.  Even if a person believes that killing another is moral (or trespassing or stealing or tax evasion, etc.), the state must make it illegal and protect all citizens, just because of each person's dignity, whether the person doing the harmful act to another believes it is right.  That "freedom of choice" rationale does permit choosing wrong and it puts "freedom" above the law.  Serious matters like killing another person must be prohibited by the state.  I look forward to seeing you at the prayer memorial at St. Mary Magdalene Cemetery on August 19th, and at the luncheon with Senator Deb Fischer on September 14th at the Garden Cafe.                 


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