40 Days for life 2015

40 Days for life 2015 is here! 17th February – 29th March

During this time of lent the Church asks us for penance and reparation especially given in the form of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. When we go to the 40 Days for Life site we fulfil this trifold obligation completely. We go in prayer and we fast while we are there and before you come – if you can. We are also supporting and offering aid to those most in need – innocent unborn children and their desperate mothers. This is a ‘corporal work of mercy’ or in other words giving alms. This means while praying at this modern day Calvary, you are fulfilling this beautiful Lenten obligation.

For more information and to register go to 40 Days 2015.

Liberal activists are at it again with another attempt to pressure TLC to cancel “19 Kids and Counting,” the successful cable television show featuring the Duggar family and their pro-life values.

The Duggar family’s central theme is their pro-life, Christian values and Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children have been outspoken over the years in defending human life from abortion and promoting abstinence education.

March for the Babies – Don’t be afraid!

Click to insert.Join the March for the Babies on Saturday 11 October at 1pm at the Treasury Gardens, Melbourne. Don’t be afraid to come because of what the protestors did last year – the police have committed to doing better this time. Now, more than ever, pro-lifers need to be seen and heard. Do not be intimidated by the people of darkness, but come and show them the light of life. Meet at the Wellington Parade side of the Treasury Gardens, corner of Spring Street. Wear pink or blue. This is the 6th annual March for the Babies. It is a peaceful rally to defend the rights of unborn babies and their mothers against the 2008 Abortion Law Reform Act. See for more. An update on September 19th on the website says: “We met with Victoria Police Command tonight and were more than satisfied with their assurances that police resources will be boosted significantly this year to avoid a repeat of last year’s violence. October 11 will be the safest March yet!” See you there!


The Man and the Serpent

I find myself completely and utterly confused that such laws exist which prevent the killing of a poisonous snake which may cause great harm to people and yet there are no such laws protecting unborn human beings even up to the moment of birth. In fact, there are laws which allow the killing of such a person if it is undesired or an inconvenience. Yet being bitten and killed by a snake is also inconvenient and definitely undesirable in my opinion so someone has gone wrong somewhere. read more

Victory for Life in Melbourne – March for the babies 2013

March for the Babies

Please read and share this wonderful story with as many people as you know:

“I came to this rally (March for the babies – Saturday 12th October 2013) and watched both sides with curiosity. I have to admit I was planning to join the ‘other side’ and I was pretty excited, it was to be my first ever rally. I got the shock of my life when I saw how ugly they were and I had to sit down to stop myself trembling. I am having triplets, cancelling my abortion on Monday morning. Thank you. My heart has been changed. – Melinda”

October Baby – Movie Review by The Dove Foundation

MV5BMTczMjc5NDExMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNjkwNTY0Nw@@._V1_SX214_Synopsis: As the curtain rises, Hannah hesitantly steps onto the stage for her theatrical debut in college. Yet before she can utter her first lines, Hannah—unscripted—collapses in front of the stunned audience.

After countless medical tests, all signs point to one underlying factor: Hannah’s difficult birth. This revelation is nothing compared to what she then learns from her parents: she was actually adopted … after a failed abortion attempt.

Bewildered, angered, and confused, Hannah turns for support to Jason, her oldest friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past … and find hope for her unknown future.

In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah finds that life can be so much more than what you have planned.

Dove Worldview: This is a terrific and touching story and this film should be seen by those who recognize the horrors of abortion. Hannah is the survivor of an attempted abortion although she doesnt know this for many years. You might just need a hanky for this sensitive and touching film.

Hannah has many health issues including epilepsy and she is asthmatic. She battles discouragement too. She writes in her diary that she feels worthless. This movie is about her journey to discover who she really is. Her adopted parents help her to learn the truth about her background. They long to hold on to her as she is, in their eyes, a gift.

Rachel Hendrix is fabulous as Hannah and John Schneider is terrific as her adopted father Jacob. After Hannah learns about the protection of her adopted parents, she is angry and heads out to learn the truth about her birth mother. In the end she discovers why her parents protected her and her love for them is strengthened.

We urge you to see this movie soon! We are recommending it for twelve plus due to its sophisticated theme. It just might change your life! We are awarding the film five Doves and our “Family-Approved” Seal to this awesome movie!

Not only has Eduardo Verástegui appeared on television, film & the stage, he has also worked behind the camera, producing award-winning films. Eduardo possesses a diverse range of creative talents, which he has showcased across the board in entertainment.

Born and raised in northern Mexico, Eduardo left home for Mexico City at the age of 18 to pursue a career in entertainment. Following many modelling engagements with prominent fashion organisations such as Versace and Calvin Klein, he toured the world with Latin pop sensation Kairo and is an acclaimed solo artist.

In 1997, he began acting in Mexican soap operas, and also appeared in several Spanish-speaking feature-length movies and music videos such as Jennifer Lopez’s Ain’t It Funny. He followed this success landing the lead role of Thomas Fuentes in Twentieth Century Fox’s film Chasing Papi. Additional credits include CSI:Miami and Charmed. He most recently starred in For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada.

Voted as one of the “most beautiful people in the world” and cited as “the fastest rising Latino star”, Eduardo changed his mind about his celebrity lifestyle after he discovered it was making him unhappy.

After Chasing Papi, Eduardo made the conscious decision to move away from his heart-throb image and concentrate on film roles which respect both men and women. “I had twelve years of a successful career under my belt, but I only experienced emptiness, lies and illusions until now,” he said. Turning down roles in movies which conflicted with his beliefs he co-founded the production company Metanoia Films, the Greek word for “conversion”. His first feature film, Bella, which he produced and starred in, won the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award.

40 Days for Life – Melbourne, Victoria

Touch hearts. Save lives. Pray to end abortion.

You can help save lives

From September 26th to November 4th, 2012, our community will be one of many cities around the world joining together for a faith-filled, groundbreaking, coordinated pro-life movement.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:

  • 40 days of prayer and fasting
  • 40 days of peaceful vigil
  • 40 days of community outreach

We are praying that with Gods help, this groundbreaking effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our city and throughout Australia.

Since the first 40 Days for Life campaign was held in 2004, internationally:

  • Over 5000 children have been spared from abortion and these are just the ones we know about!
  • Over 60 abortion workers have quit their jobs;
  • 19 abortion facilities have completely shut down; and
  • Numerous women and men too are finding healing & forgiveness after having experienced an abortion.

There is much you can do, and this is where we need your help and involvement in the 40 Days for Life, Melbourne campaign. Can you spare an hour, or two, or more, to pray for the life of a baby? The life you save through prayer will be made known to you in heaven. While all aspects of 40 Days for Life are crucial in our effort to end abortion, the most visible component is the peaceful prayer vigil outside the abortion facility.

You can help make a life-saving impact by joining our local vigil at:
