Baking for Babies 2023
Two of the sweetest things in the world are babies and deliciously glazed cinnamon rolls. A Community Caring for Life (ACCL) is hosting Baking for Babies Pro-Life Cinnamon Roll Bake and Sale event Jan. 21-22. This will be the thirty-first year the ACCL has put on this event. The tradition started in January because it’s the same month and anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision, when the Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand in all 50 states in 1973.
We celebrate the June 24, 2022 Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Center which overturned Roe vs. Wade, placing the writing and enforcement of abortion legislation on individual states. ACCL members expect there will be a greater need to support pro-life organizations in Minnesota now because of our pro-choice leadership and their lack of interest in supporting life-centered organizations.
The MN Catholic Bishops released the following statement Oct. 2, 2022 regarding the current laws in Minnesota. “Right now in Minnesota, the situation is troubling: in spite of the fact that scientific inquiry has definitively determined that human life begins at conception, a woman can procure an abortion for almost any reason at any stage of pregnancy up till birth. Our laws allow an 11-year-old girl to get an abortion without even one parent knowing. There is no requirement in force that a licensed physician perform an abortion. And abortion proponents, including elected officials, are working proactively to shut down pregnancy resource centers.”
At Holy Name of Jesus, A Community Caring for Life will give the money raised from our Baking for Babies event to organizations like Pro-Life Action Ministries (PLAM). PALM trains sidewalk counselors to educate mothers on abortion and their preborn child. Southwest Options for Women (SWOW) in Eden Prairie, Robbinsdale Women’s Center (RWC), and Abria in Minneapolis and St. Paul all offer free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, education, counseling and supplies for mother and child.
As long as abortion is legal in Minnesota, our work continues at Holy Name of Jesus. Baking for Babies Pro-Life Cinnamon Roll Event needs volunteers for frosting and assembling Friday and Saturday. Selling rolls Saturday and Sunday. Please sign-up by following the link here, https://bit.ly/BakingForBabies2023.
