|Paul, I’ve been doing pro-life work for over 15 years, and the recent news out of D.C. has broken me all over again. |
After seeing an image of one of the five babies – a beautiful baby boy – nearly full-term, naked and dumped in a bucket as “medical waste,” possibly born alive and left to die… it is hard to comprehend the cruelty he endured. I keep thinking of my own two sons, especially my youngest, born just a few months ago.
The pain is devastating. The abortionist responsible for their deaths is still at large and must be brought to justice to save future children.
If you didn’t see my email last Friday or haven’t been aware otherwise… I’m referencing #JusticeForTheFive.
The mangled bodies of babies were found by pro-life activists in Washington, D.C., labeled as “medical waste.”
Update for you: The D.C. government is still refusing to take action to investigate the killing of these five innocent babies, some of whom may have been murdered in violation of state and federal law. Their inaction is inexcusable.
We must do everything in our power to obtain #JusticeForTheFive and prevent abortionist Cesare Santangelo from killing more children. Crimes against children like these cannot be allowed to stand in our country.
How you can help right now: Contact D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser to demand an autopsy and investigation into the killing of these five children: (202) 727-2643
Here are some talking points for you:
The Medical Examiner is currently in possession of the bodies of five children who may have been killed through illegal abortion.
The Medical Examiner must perform a full autopsy and make his thorough report known so the public can understand what happened to these children.
Doctors who have seen pictures of these kids conclude that there may have been violations of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act and the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. If true, these are serious federal crimes.
Please ensure that after a full investigation of how these children died and if the abortionists violated federal laws, the babies be laid to rest with dignity and given a proper burial.
Paul, your immediate action could make all the difference.
The organization Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) confirmed in a press conference today that the bodies of the five infants were recovered from Curtis Bay Medical Waste Services outside Cesare Santangelo’s abortion facility in D.C. on March 25th when a driver gave the activists a box of aborted children set to be burned as medical waste.
The bodies of murdered children are not medical waste.
But it gets even worse… Curtis Bay’s website says it incinerates biomedical waste to turn it into “useful energy.”
It’s absolutely horrifying to realize that precious babies are being killed and then burned and turned into electricity or other energy sources for homes and businesses. Every American must know these devastating actions are happening so we can wake up and end this real-life horror story. We CANNOT let our country become a place where infanticide becomes normalized and where “doctors” can kill with impunity.
We must work urgently to end abortion and make all violence against any innocent child, whether born or preborn, prohibited by law and firmly rejected by our culture.
These five children deserve our collective mourning, they deserve swift justice, and they deserve a proper burial.
Please take swift action by contacting D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser so that justice can be served and future children can be spared this brutality. Use the talking points above and call this number: (202) 727-2643
Paul, your activism right now is critical. These precious children deserve justice, and the attention being given to them right now provides the opportunity to raise awareness to EVERY preborn baby in danger of brutal death by abortion or infanticide.
We have no time to lose.
Thank you for joining us in this important, life-saving work.

I have something important to share with you …
Here’s a quote from a man we interviewed in Miami:
“I’m pro-abortion. That sounds bad, but I think that people should have the choice if they’re not ready.”
Have you ever heard someone make this statement about abortion before? How does it make you feel?
Do you think people with this perspective can change their minds?
In 5 short minutes, this man changed from pro-abortion advocate, to someone who is moved by the value of life. See his reaction here:
Here’s the truth: Anyone can change. And in just 5 minutes, that’s exactly what happened with this man in Miami.
All it took was a little bit of education and an honest conversation. When we share the truth about abortion, hearts and minds change.
If you ever feel like you can’t make a difference in ending abortion, know that you can. One conversation at a time.
I’m grateful to be in these transformational efforts with you!

I got the following email today, and believe that this topic is too important not to share with you. – Pastor Ed
I need you to take action right away…
Today, the U.S. Senate will begin hearings on confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
As you may know, if confirmed, Judge Barrett could be the deciding vote on the court when it comes to possibly overturning the disastrous Roe v. Wade decision.
With Judge Barrett’s impressive legal credentials and judicial track record, and her acknowledgment of the medical and scientific fact that life begins at conception, we have good reasons to trust that she will lend her qualifications to the work of justice – on Roe v. Wade and beyond.
Ed, that’s why I am reaching out to you – will you join me in contacting your U.S. Senators today to urge them to vote to confirm Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court?
With the confirmation vote in the U.S. Senate promising to be an intense fight, it is critical that we let our senators know that they must swiftly confirm Amy to the Supreme Court.
With Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry doing everything to stop Judge Barrett from being confirmed, we must take action NOW!
Ed, your action today can make a critical difference. Every person who you can also get to take action will make a difference.
When you click below, here are two things you can do:
- Email your U.S. Senators
- Call your U.S. Senators
A quick note: when you select this option, you will receive a phone call from 571-475-9275 that will directly patch you through to your state’s senators. Simply follow the prompts!
We’ve provided a pre-filled e-mail and a phone script to make it easy for you to directly contact both of your senators.
Ed, you can contact your U.S. Senators to urge them to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court here:
Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court prompts pro-life hopes
The retirement announcement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has led pro-life advocates to voice hope that his successor could help overturn Roe v. Wade in coming years.
Kennedy submitted his formal resignation on Wednesday, in a letter to President Donald Trump.
Supreme Court sides with pro-life pregnancy centers in California abortion case
The Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked a California law requiring pro-life pregnancy centers to post information on programs to obtain and free or low-cost abortion.
The 5-4 ruling in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra sent the case back to a lower court to be reconsidered, in light of the Supreme Court’s finding that “We hold that petitioners are likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that the FACT Act violates the First Amendment.”
Lower courts had rejected a petition to temporarily block the California law while it was being legally challenged. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the case against the law was unlikely to succeed on its merits.
16-year-old boy with cancer uses his Make a Wish to ask for an end to abortion
When you’re 16 years old and living with and dying from cancer, no one would expect you to use the wish granted to you by the Make a Wish Foundation in a completely selfless way. But that’s just what Jeremiah Thomas did. In March, the all-star, state champion athlete was diagnosed with osteoblastic osteosarcoma, a bone cancer that is resistant to radiation therapy and has a survival rate of just 10 percent. With a tumor dangerously close to his heart and two on his spine, his doctors told his parents that it was too late. He was paralyzed from the waist down from the tumor on his spine but it didn’t hold him back.
“I can still preach from a wheelchair,” he said.
California teacher under investigation for showing Live Action abortion videos
A middle school teacher in Sacramento, California, is under investigation by the Sacramento City Unified School District after showing videos about the reality of abortion. The Sacramento Bee reports that parents complained after their children watched the video series at AbortionProcedures.com, in which former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino describes the most commonly used abortion procedures during each trimester of pregnancy.
Email from CareNet.org
Good morning, Ed!
One year ago, I was busy putting the final touches on Care Net’s brand new resource, Pro-Life 101. This first-ever, free online course helps pro-life people learn the history of abortion and how they can reach those facing difficult pregnancy decisions with the compassion, hope, and help of Jesus.
The response has been fantastic!
Ed, since the course launched on July 1, 2017 more than 18,000 people have enrolled and are learning to transform their pro-life passion into life-saving action! Isn’t that incredible?
Each weekly session takes about fifteen minutes, and the entire self-led course is only 6-weeks long. Each student learns the facts about abortion and the abortion industry and how to confidently and lovingly stand for the unborn whose lives hang in the balance.
Imagine how many babies this training could help you save.
Every day, the abortion industry continues to fill the minds of Americans with lies about its grisly, destructive work. There is a critical need for reliable information about the abortion epidemic and its far-reaching consequences so that we, as pro-life supporters, can stand up for the most vulnerable among us. This year, close to a million babies are expected to lose their lives in abortion if we don’t act.
But how can we take action if we aren’t equipped?
That’s why I wanted to make sure that you have an opportunity to experience Pro-Life 101. Your passion to see unborn lives saved from abortion is clear, Ed, and I know that you would benefit from this course.
You can sign up today for free here: https://resources.care-net.org/pro-life-101/
I hope to see you complete the course! Together, we can save these babies and introduce their parents to the marvelous love of Jesus Christ.
The Trump administration is announcing its intentions to cut a significant amount of taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses. The proposed regulation will also better protect victims of sexual assault, incest and rape because it will require that any Title X-funded projects document their compliance with state reporting laws when they encounter potential victims.
In 1970, Title X was enacted by Congress to provide federal tax dollars for what is termed family planning — but also explicitly banned funding for abortion, stating, “None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” In 1988, the Reagan administration put regulations in place which mandated that “Title X programs may not promote, counsel, or refer clients for abortion or co-locate or combine family planning services with abortion activities.” It also required “not only complete financial separation, but also physical separation of abortion activities from Title X service sites and separate personnel.”
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes and Ryan LaFave is no exception. The 22-year-old is a graduate of Cowlitz 2’s fire science program and is a volunteer with Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue in Kelso, Washington, where his father David is chief. LaFave also happens to have Down syndrome. Last summer, he was at home when two neighbor children came running to his door.
It had happened to a few girls in my high school before me, some of whom quickly had an abortion and moved on with their lives. Except this time it was me. The flood of emotions I experienced upon learning of my pregnancy as I started my senior year of high school was dominated by fear and shame.
Needless to say, this wasn’t the most planned aspect of my life and certainly was not on my regimented timeline for becoming a doctor – or for life in general, for that matter. Many around me said I wouldn’t accomplish my goals and that if I went through with the pregnancy I would not only ruin my life but my child’s as well. I also found myself questioning whether I really could amount to anything, other than being a statistic and ultimately a single parent.
In a new feature at EdBoston.com we will be taking a weekly look at the latest in Pro-Life news, and soon to follow – a weekly podcast featuring commentary from our own Amy Boston. More details on the weekly podcast to come soon, but for now – take a look at these stories snippets and the full stories are at links provided.
Ireland’s upcoming vote on whether to legalize abortion is “a vital issue of life or death” that threatens to change the country forever, Bishop Fintan Monahan of Killaloe told his diocese.
“I, along with many others find it almost beyond belief and profoundly sad that we are being asked to abolish the basic right to life of the unborn child from our constitution, a most fundamental and basic right,” he said.
President Donald Trump will be the keynote speaker at the Susan B. Anthony List’s Campaign for Life Gala on May 22. Trump will talk about his administration’s pro-life efforts at the event, which will be held at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
“President Trump has diligently and successfully gone about fulfilling his promises to the pro-life voters who worked so hard to elect him, and it has been a privilege to stand with him to defend the innocent unborn,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
YouTube suspended the Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) account for “repeated or severe violations of [the] Community Guidelines.” Four videos were posted to the account. The “offending” videos included one webinar explaining APR in scientific and medical terms. The remaining three told the stories of women who chose life for their babies using the APR protocol.
Ryan Bomberger posted an update to this situation on his Facebook page:
After receiving a Cease and Desist letter from our attorney, the Vicksburg Community Schools District responded with a draft apology within 24 hours to the charges of defamation made in regard to The Radiance Foundation‘s life-affirming assembly at Vicksburg High School on May 1, 2018. We’ve received tremendous positive feedback from students, parents and teachers about the ‘Life Has Purpose’ multimedia presentation.
In 2015, California officially legalized assisted suicide. Despite intense opposition from both religious and disability rights groups, as well as doctors, California Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill into law, claiming he considered what he would want, saying, “In the end, I was left to reflect on what I would want in the face of my own death.” But now, almost two years after it took effect, a Riverside judge has overturned the law.
