NEW YORK, NY — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today to mark the “International Day of Prayer and Remembrance for Terri Schindler Schiavo, and All of Our Vulnerable Brothers and Sisters,” or “Terri’s Day,” on the ninth anniversary of the death of Terri Schindler Schiavo:

“Nine years ago today, I sat and prayed with a woman who had been denied food and water for two weeks. I saw the light fading from her eyes, and just minutes after our time together, she died. Terri’s death was the perverse wish of her murderous husband and carried out by order of a court.

“With efforts under way to expand the ‘right to die’ in many locales, it’s more important than ever that we remember Terri and the increasingly callous way our society judges a person’s right to life. She was not hooked up to any machines. She was able to smile and kiss her parents and siblings. Her family saw her as a blessing, not a burden. Terri didn’t insist on any ‘right to die,’ and I am certain that if she could have spoken up for herself, she would still be with us today.”

Supreme Court Declines Further Review of HHS Challenges: Priests for Life Lawsuit in D.C. Circuit Continues

Monday, March 31st, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC – As reported today by Reuters, the Supreme Court has decided not to give an early review to the cases brought by Priests for Life and other Catholic groups (including the Archdiocese of Washington, Catholic University of America, and Thomas Aquinas College) against the HHS mandate.

The groups, whose cases are currently in the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, made use of a special provision that allows an appeal to the Supreme Court, even while the case is in a lower court, provided the “case is of such imperative public importance as to justify deviation from normal appellate practice and to require immediate determination in this Court” (Sup. Ct. R. 11).

The Supreme Court’s decision not to grant early review simply means that the cases will proceed, without prejudice, in the lower federal court. Either the plaintiffs or the defendants may later seek a Supreme Court review, after the outcome.

The oral arguments will take place on May 8, and that this will likely be the first oral argument before a federal appellate court on the merits of the case that the religious non-profits are bringing against the HHS mandate. Robert Muise, Co-Founder and Chief Counsel at the American Freedom Law Center, and General Counsel for Priests for Life, stated, “This case with Priests for Life is the lead case for the non-profit religious organizations challenging the mandate similar to how Hobby Lobby is the lead case for the for-profit companies challenging the HHS mandate.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated, “We are working with our attorneys to present the strongest possible case to the Court of Appeals, and at the same time are urging the public to stand with us, just as they are standing with Hobby Lobby. We will certainly appeal to the Supreme Court if the lower court does not rule in our favor. Moreover, no matter what any court says at any time, we will disobey this mandate. It is unjust, immoral, and intolerable.”

Priests for Life Case Could Follow Hobby Lobby in Supreme Court: #StandWithPFL Hashtag Launched

NEW YORK, NY – On March 25, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the Hobby Lobby/Conestoga Wood Specialties case regarding whether for-profit businesses have religious rights to be protected from the HHS mandate. The court is expected to render its decision in June.

Three days later, the Supreme Court considered whether or not to likewise hear a case – Priests for Life vs. Sebelius — concerning how much protection the non-profit religious entities should have from the same mandate.

Many Americans have been led to believe that religious groups like Priests for Life are automatically exempt. That is not the case,” explained Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “Churches are exempt, but other non-profit organizations like Priests for Life are still being told to violate our consciences. The government says we just have to sign a form that expresses our objection to the mandate, and then they will arrange for our employees to be covered for the objectionable practices. But that still makes us the gateway to the coverage, and we want no part of that.”

Priests for Life’s lawsuit, filed in February 2012, was one of the first lawsuits to challenge the mandate, and is currently in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. At the same time, an appeal to the Supreme Court has been made, utilizing “Rule 11,” which allows a matter of particular importance to be brought to the Supreme Court even while a lower court is hearing it.

The attorneys at the American Freedom Law Center pointed out that not only does Priests for Life object to the mandate, but the very purpose of the organization is to oppose the kinds of practices the mandate requires groups to cover. Therefore, the ministry is uniquely qualified for a separate review by the Supreme Court; as the petition states, “This challenge goes to the very core of Priests for Life’s reason for existing as an organization.”

Father Pavone said he expects to find out this week if the Supreme Court will review Priests for Life’s case. Regardless of that decision, the case in the appeals court continues. Lawyers for the Obama administration filed another brief on Friday, March 28 and Priests for Life attorneys will respond on April 11. Oral arguments are scheduled for May 8.

Robert Muise, Chief Counsel for the American Freedom Law Center, also stated, “This case with Priests for Life is the lead case for the non-profit religious organizations challenging the mandate similar to how Hobby Lobby is the lead case for the for-profit companies challenging the HHS mandate.”

To keep up with the Priests for Life lawsuit and the petition to the Supreme Court, go to www.StandwithPFL.com Priests for Life also has launched a social media campaign using the hashtag #StandWithPFL.

An ongoing conversation with someone on the fence…

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

140327 blog image

“Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.” Romans 12:19 ESV

In response to yesterday’s blog regarding the HHS mandate and how it is wrong to force Christians to comply with socialist policies, someone wrote me the reply below. My answer follows. I have a feeling that this will become an ongoing conversation…

It may be that the young lady who wrote to me is a confused feminist, like many women are today. Misplaced anger and misplaced compassion are being fueled by a need for vengeance against the wrongs and atrocities committed against women. This seesaw has been going on in America since slavery days, and also the suffragette movement. It is a spiritual battle.

Of course being granted the right to vote; to own property; to work and receive equal pay as males; to be able to make healthy choices regarding female fertility; Constitutional Rights; all of these are genuine human and civil rights. But why did we go wrong, including deadly carcinogenic birth control methods and the killing of little human babies in mothers’ wombs as part of the feminist package?

We slipped into seeking vengeance and not justice. God help us!

Tomorrow the SCOTUS will hear the PFL HHS Mandate case. Our case is in the appeals process in the DC Circuit court. While the appeal works its way through the appeals process, which can be a lengthy undertaking, we have petitioned the SCOTUS to take up the case because of its “imperative public importance.”

Now, here’s that conversation with CC.

Dear Dr. Alveda, this (the perspective on why the HHS mandate is wrong) really seems wrong on every level. I think the gov’t and the organizations are trying and failing to do something that not even God attempts – to remove our free will. Conservatives and Christians should spend more time and resources educating people on how to make informed decisions and less effort in trying to legislate morality because the end result is the same despite the motivation. Forcing people’s hands equates to slavery and is wrong, it is wrong to force people who are ill equipped to become parents and it is wrong to force people who oppose abortions to fund them. I say make abortions legal but educate people from a very young age why it is the worst solution. an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. hobby lobby should have family appreciation days and celebrate life, let their customers sell their crafts at hobby lobby flea markets and moneys collected could go to educational training programs or teen jobs or something. taking away rights in a broken system without replacing it with something better is unfortunately worse…. CC

Dear CC, Well, would you also suggest to make all forms of robbery, rape, murder and all of that legal and simply educate people at an early age about how bad all of that is? Because some may think that it isn’t fair to make someone go to jail for murdering people just because it is wrong. Sometimes, people feel that they have very good reasons for stealing, killing, lying and all of that. This is often the case of abortions, many of which are the result of coercion from third parties. Many women don’t want to abort their babies, yet they are dragged to the abortion mills by parents, lovers, and others. Also, what about those women who are forced to abort because of one child policies, or because a third party doesn’t want an ethnically blended relative? Abortion is harmful on so many levels. After all, abortion not only kills babies, but sometimes mothers as well. Just asking. Love, Dr. Alveda

Religious Freedom is a Civil and Human Right!

“There is a difference between killing the poor and serving the poor.” Father Frank Pavone, Priests for Life

UPDATE

Monday I did an interview on Airing the Addisons with Wil and Meeke discussing the HHS Mandate and Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods. Click HERE to listen to that show.

This week at the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) involves the lives of every American: yet many are unaware.

Yesterday the SCOTUS heard arguments for two cases, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods, regarding their lawsuits against the HHS Mandate. Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, led prayers with other pro-life leaders and religious freedom advocates at a rally in front of the Supreme Court Building in support of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods. Planned Parenthood and others they will be bussing in to rally in favor of the HHS Mandate.

The irony now is that during the oral arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday on whether the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act violates the free exercise of religion, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan suggested that employers who have moral objections to birth control should not provide health care coverage for their employees. They even recommended that employers opt to pay taxes to avoid the mandate and even give employees a $2K raise to buy their own insurance. Does this sound like a socialist agenda?

This is an important question for human and civil rights advocates because much is at stake regarding the Constitutional rights of religious freedom for every American.

Yet another case deals with infringement against religious freedom of non-profit companies. In our Priests for Life case, I join Fr. Frank Pavone, and Janet Morana as parties to our HHS lawsuit; actually the third in a series filed against the HHS Mandate. The irony is the HHS Mandate seeks to force Priests for Life, an organization that teaches that contraception and abortions are dangerous, life threatening and immoral, to pay for, directly or indirectly, the very injustice that we are fighting against.

Our case is in the appeals process in the DC Circuit court. While the appeal works its way through the appeals process, which can be a lengthy undertaking, we have petitioned the SCOTUS to take up the case because of its “imperative public importance.” That petition will be heard later this week, on Friday, March 28.

Please pray that the SCOTUS will make the right decisions and rule in favor of the Hobby Lobby/Conestga Woods case; that the HHS Mandate is unconstitutional and pray that the SCOTUS agrees that our PFL case is of such “imperative public importance” that it decides to take up the case and give a favorable ruling.

These legal matters raise civil and human rights issue. It is an injustice to rule on the side of death dealing agents such as carcinogenic fertility blockers. My Uncle M.L. fought for civil rights over 50 years ago and the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act is coming up later this year. Yet, in 2014 our government is working against our liberties.

May God have mercy and help us, because: CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, LIKE CIVIL RIGHTS, ARE WORTH FIGHTING FOR!

Fr. Pavone to Pray and Speak at Supreme Court on Tuesday

Priests for Life awaits response from Court re HHS Mandate

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: March 24, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

WASHINGTON, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will join other Americans concerned about the right to life and religious freedom at a rally in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday morning, March 25, when the Court will hear oral arguments in regard to the HHS Mandate. Further Supreme Court action on this matter is expected on the 28th in regard to Priests for Life.

The rally for religious freedom will take place from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. ET.

Planned Parenthood is also expected to bring people to rally in favor of the mandate.

The oral arguments in the consolidated cases of Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods will begin inside the court at 10 a.m. and conclude at 11:30 a.m.

Priests for Life has been urging people to join a novena of prayer during these days for the reversal of the mandate. The prayers for each day can be found at www.PrayerCampaign.org.

“This is a moment of Biblical proportions,” Fr. Pavone explained. “Scripture, and all Christian history, are filled with moments of conflict between civil authority and people of faith. At every point, those people are called to obey God rather than man.

“We at Priests for Life also have a lawsuit against this mandate, and in fact were among the first to file one. We too have a petition to the Supreme Court to hear our case, and the Justices will consider whether they will do so this Friday, March 28,” Fr. Pavone commented. “The case being heard on Tuesday concerns the rights of for-profit businesses; in our case, the Court would be considering the rights of non-profit religious entities. Obviously, the Court eventually needs to address both.”

In its petition to the Supreme Court on behalf of Priests for Life, the American Freedom Law Center points out, “this challenge goes to the very core of Priests for Life’s reason for existing as an organization. Consequently, Petitioners are well situated—and perhaps best suited—to challenge the mandate and its application to non-exempt, nonprofit religious organizations.” The Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has also consolidated the case brought by the Archdiocese of Washington and its related institutions together with that of Priests for Life.

Fr. Pavone concluded, “In the end, the matter is simple: We love our faith; we love our country, and we want to be able to do both at the same time.”

Pelosi, Clinton and Richards: A Scary Trio

Friday, March 21st, 2014

140321 blog image framed

The war on the wombs of women, women’s fertility, and the human and civil rights of mothers and their babies is real.

The world has gone mad, ensconced in webs of chicanery and corrosion. So let’s not even try to pretend that a society with anti-fertility goddesses Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Cecile Richards all simultaneously “calling the shots” against the wombs of women is all just a figment of our imagination.

Wake up! This scary trio’s antics is no dream…it’s a nightmare!

For instance, Clinton recently told the United Nations, “You cannot make progress on gender equality or broader human development without safeguarding women’s reproductive health or rights.” Her speech was part of the UN’s celebration of the International Women’s Day.

Also, let’s not forget that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards mounted a Valentine’s Day massacre inviting women to celebrate the holiday by having abortions. And although she is a mother of three living children, she holds on to her “macabre diatribe” that babies aren’t human until they take their first breaths.

Moreover, while it’s true that Congresswoman Pelosi deserves Planned Parenthood’s “Margaret Sanger Award” – almost no one has done more to promote the killing of innocent babies in the womb than she has. If Mrs. Pelosi wants to finally take her role as a public servant seriously, she will reject the award named for Sanger – a racist woman who on record had no problem speaking at a Ku Klux Klan meeting.

Since 1966, “The Sanger Award” has been given annually by Planned Parenthood. Uncle M.L. was also named one of award’s first four recipients, but refused to accept it personally. [See MLK and PPH Part 1 & Part 2]

It’s ironic that Planned Parenthood, an organization that has done more to trample upon human rights, would extend to Uncle M.L. an award for his human rights work.

Actually when Aunt Coretta accepted the Planned Parenthood Award instead of her husband, PPH did not advocate abortions, and its racist roots had not yet been exposed. Also, like Mrs. Barbara Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush, Aunt Coretta did not share her husband’s views on the sanctity of life.

Knowing what we know now – 56 million dead children later – is that carcinogenic, fertility-blocking birth control and abortions kill babies and often injure their mothers.

I’m confident that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who gave his life defending others’ rights to life and liberty, and who often defended the sanctity of human life and the human personality, would again reject any association with Planned Parenthood today.

M.L. King had a dream, not this nightmare.

He prayed that the human race would forsake eugenics and genocide and embrace “Agape Love” on behalf of the human race – unconditional, selfless love – the highest form according to the Bible.

Father Frank Pavone is right; my uncle M.L. knew the difference between killing the poor and serving the poor. This is the basis of the difference between the dream and the nightmare.

Added to this nightmare are the increasingly deep pockets of those like Billionaire Warren Buffett’s foundation, who has hired Tracy Weitz, the woman who oversaw the research project used by California legislators to justify allowing non-physicians to perform first trimester abortions, to head its domestic operations. This former Planned Parenthood employee will be one of two people in charge of the Buffett Foundation’s $2 billion domestic operations budget.

Clinton, Pelosi and Richards need to “woman up” and admit that their anger against the ills committed against women in the past – and present – does not add up to their formula for justice.

Killing babies and maiming mothers will not pave the way for the feminist rights that women are crying for. Two wrongs can never make a right. Civil rights and human rights will always decry the killing of baby girls in the womb, of killing babies because of their ethnicity, of killing babies for any reason. And certainly for convincing their mothers, fathers, families and society that it’s all in the name of justice.

Shame on the scary trio!

Decision Expected Soon on Priests for Life’s Petition to Bring HHS Challenge to Supreme Court

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: March 20, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK, NY — Priests for Life will likely know by the end of the month if the U.S. Supreme Court will review its challenge to the contraceptives mandate in the Affordable Care Act.

“Our petition for review with the Supreme Court is scheduled to go to conference on Friday, March 28,” said Robert Muise, co-founder and senior counsel of the American Freedom Law Center. “We will likely know the outcome within a couple of days.”

The Supreme Court has already agreed to hear the case against the HHS mandate on behalf of for-profit business corporations. If the petition of Priests for Life is successful, it would bring before the Court the question of how the mandate impacts religious, not-for-profit groups.

“We’re hopeful that our case will be accepted because our objections to this unjust mandate stem not only from our personal convictions, but from the very purpose of our organization,” Fr. Pavone explained.

Father Pavone noted that if the Supreme Court denies the petition, it would not impact the Priests for Life lawsuit currently in the D.C. Circuit, and the organization would still be able to seek review in the Supreme Court after the circuit court rules.

“As we have said since this unjust mandate was announced more than two years ago, we will not obey it and we are confident we will prevail in court,” Father Pavone said.

Fr. Frank Pavone Announces National Christian Voter Registration Sundays

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: March 13, 2014

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today called on all believers to participate in National Voter Registration Sundays to be held on June 29, July 6, and September 7 this year.

“Citizens do not have the luxury of ‘sitting out’ elections,” said Fr. Pavone. “When human life is at stake, when our very ability to freely practice our faith is under attack, we need to defend life and faith. God has given us an opportunity to do exactly that by voting. That’s why this year’s Voter Registration Sundays are crucial.”

Voter Registration Sundays are promoted by Priests for Life and other national pro-life and pro-family organizations to encourage pastors and church attendees to do what they are legally entitled to do – conduct non-partisan voter registration drives. While the official days of these registration efforts this year are the Sundays before and after Independence Day and the Sunday before 9/11, churches, prayer groups, and Bible studies can register voters on any day of their choosing.

“Priests for Life has a wealth of material at PoliticalResponsibility.com that explains how to have a voter registration day in your church, spelling out the activities that all churches and charitable non-profit groups are legally permitted to do,” added Fr. Pavone. “There is no legal reason for pastors or churchgoers to refrain from having registration drives at church. On the contrary, we should feel impelled to do so.”

Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, observed that there is a historical connection to this year’s registration drives.

“This is the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act,” she said. “We have seen in these last five decades how the right to vote has helped guarantee the civil rights of all Americans of any color. Our right to vote today can help restore and protect the civil rights of all Americans of any stage of life.”

The Family Research Council, a chief sponsor of the National Voter Registration Sundays, states on its website, “Christians can have a positive impact on elections and ultimately our nation’s future….Yet every election millions of Christians fail to exercise their rights and responsibilities as citizens. We can help our people obey Christ’s command to participate in government (Matt. 22:21) by encouraging voter registration and voting Christian values.”

Priests for Life has formed a national “Vote Pro-life Coalition” (VoteProLifeCoalition.com) to foster joint non-partisan efforts among national groups. Members of the Coalition are promoting the Voter Registration Sundays. For instance, Chris Slattery, founder and President of Expectant Mother Care/EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers, said, “Getting ourselves, our family, friends, church and pro-life contacts to register to vote is more important than ever. Let’s take the time to get involved with voter registration drives, especially on the dates promoted here.”

Jo Tolck, Executive Director of the Human Life Alliance, simply declared, “Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves. Remember to register! Remember to vote!”

More information on the National Christian Voter Registration Sundays is available from Priests for Life at http://www.priestsforlife.org/vote/.
