Date: September 12, 2011

Contact: Andre Kim

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has indicated that the Vote Pro-life Coalition, called together by Priests for Life and consisting of over three dozen national groups, has designated “Voter Registration Sundays” for 2012. The Coalition asks organizations, parishes and dioceses to begin learning how to conduct a non-partisan voter registration drive, and to begin planning now to give their people the urgent invitation and opportunity to register to vote.

The dates of next year’s Voter Registration Sundays are May 27 (Pentecost, when we rejoice in the power of the Holy Spirit to send us forth to renew the earth), July 1 (Sunday closest to Independence Day), and September 9 (Sunday closest to Patriot Day).

“The elections of 2012 will be crucial to restoring protection to the unborn, and every day between now and Nov. 6, 2012, my colleagues and I will do all in our power to see to it that the elections advance the cause of life,” Fr. Pavone said. “One of the most important things our coalition groups are doing now is to urge their members to pay attention to the candidate debates and get to know those who are presenting themselves for the highest office in our land.”

Among the groups in the Coalition are American Values, Americans United for Life Action, Anglicans for Life, Ave Maria School of Law, California Civil Rights Foundation,, CEC For Life, Citizens for a Pro-life Society, Christian Coalition of America, Coming Home, Crossroads Pro-Life, Democrats for Life, Expectant Mother Care, Faith and Action, Faithful Catholic Citizens, Good Counsel Homes, Gospel of Life Ministries, The Heidi Group, Heartbeat International, Human Life Alliance, The Justice Foundation, Life Advocacy Resource Project, Life Coalition International, Life Issues Institute, LifeNews, Life Site News, National Clergy Council, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), National Life Center, National Pro-life Religious Council, One More Soul, Operation Outcry, Operation Rescue, Priests for Life, Pro-Life Action League, Rachel’s Vineyard, Susan B. Anthony List, and Wallbuilders.

    I live in Illinois and both candidates are both pro abortion. what if the candidates are pro abortion how can I vote for someone that is pro abortion? it sickens me everyday! I was praying outside a clinic the other day and they came out and through out a big bag of garbage knowing what was inside of there enraged me so I focused on god and prayed so hard for those babies that will never get to be hold for the first time and I prayed for god to baptize them and for them to go straight to heaven. How can I vote for either candidate who will vote to allow these vicious murders to be legal.

    If both are pro-abortion then you have to look at the other issues. One of them will be elected. Your vote may help to elect the one that will do the least amount of damage. Besides, if you also look at all the other candidates on the ballet for other offices, you might be able to make a difference there too.
