AFA of PA encourages Christians, through education, to become involved in pro-family issues in their community, state and the nation. This is some of what has been going on in the Commonwealth and the nation.
On Friday the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) reported they had found no evidence that Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in PA were involved in buying or selling fetal tissue – a euphemism for aborted babies’ hearts, brains, kidneys, livers, intact bodies, etc . The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide pro-life group, notes that this same department, along with the Department of State, repeatedly chose to do nothing despite being faced with evidence of wrongdoing at the Gosnell abortion clinic in Philadelphia.
The Center for Medical Progress has now released seven undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of baby body parts. The mainstream media has tried very hard to ignore this story, but it hasn’t gone away. How much coverage did your local newspaper give to this story? Perhaps a letter to the editor would help expose the story!

In 2014 Planned Parenthood PAC endorsed Tom Wolf for PA Governor, donated $1 million, went door to door and make phone calls for his campaign.

The 36th Regular Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) is to be held in Barbados from July 2 to 4, 2015. This area of the world, as well as others, have been targeted by the Obama Administration trying to force them to replace their pro-family laws with laws legalizing same-sex “marriage,” abortion and euthanasia. The Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society is asking supporters of the natural family from around the world to sign a petition that they will deliver during the meeting in Barbados.
Today the Pennsylvania Senate confirmed by a vote of 31 to 18 Pedro Cortes to be the commonwealth’s next Secretary of State. Cortes had previously served in that same position for seven years under Governor Ed Rendell.

A 2013 UNICEF report claims children as young as 10 have the “right” to confidential sex services.
