Job Opening at Priests for Life


Priests for Life is expanding our correspondence/public outreach department. We looking for a person who can interact with the public and answer their questions about abortion, about other issues closely related to it, and about the pro-life movement and how to be involved in it. Utilizing email, social media, and some snail mail, this individual would rely on the multiple resources we have here at Priests for Life and guide people in how to use them, as well as lead people to the many resources offered across the pro-life movement. Our new staff member would also interact with the public by phone to encourage and guide people in their pro-life activism and help them explore how they can increase that involvement. Relocation is not necessarily involved in accepting this position.

Giving Tuesday – Pro Life

praying baby

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We all know how great the temptation is to commercialize the Christmas season.

Thankfully, there’s a growing movement to mark today as GIVING TUESDAY.

Now in its fourth year, the purpose of Giving Tuesday is to celebrate and encourage giving.

And quite frankly, there is no better way for you – or anyone else, for that matter – to give back to God for all the blessings He’s showered upon us than to help people respect the dignity of the human person, especially the child in the womb.

Remember what Our Lord tells us in John’s gospel:

“I came that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.”

I am certain this is why Pope St. John Paul II said that the fight to end abortion is “the most important work on earth.”

Thanks to you and pro-life heroes like you, Priests for Life has become the face and voice of America’s pro-life movement.

Thanks to you and pro-life warriors like you, Priests for Life is leading the People of Life to victory over abortion.

Thanks to you and pro-life champions like you, Priests for Life is bringing all of us closer to the day when we make abortion-on-demand not only illegal in America, but also unthinkable.

And thanks to the gift you make today, we will continue to write the Gospel of Life on the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans and end our nation’s abortion holocaust.

Remember: Abortion corrupts our entire society.  All of the other important issues our nation faces right now pale in significance to our work to end abortion.  That’s because America cannot survive as a nation as long as we persecute the youngest members of our human family.
Let’s stop the killing.  Together, as we pray during this Advent season, let us resolve to end the grave injustice of abortion.

Thank you for your commitment to the cause of life.  And thank you for your dedication to protecting our unborn brothers and sisters.  May God bless you.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: A Heart Which Sees


“The program of Jesus is “a heart which sees”. This heart sees where love is needed and acts accordingly” (Pope Benedict XVI, God is Love). 

Reflection: What can you do to stop abortion? One of the first things is to be sure you know, by memory, a phone number that people can call for alternatives to abortion and healing after abortion. The national hotline number 1-800-712-HELP connects people to both kinds of help nearest to where they live. Promote this number in any way you can!

Prayer: Father, make me ready to point people to where they can find help, and courageous to speak up when they need it. Amen.

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Population Decline


“God greatly increased the number of his people and made them too strong for their foes” (Psalm 105:24).

Reflection: Dr. Joseph Chamie, Director of the Population Division at the United Nations, has said, “A growing number of countries view their low birth rates with the resulting population decline and ageing to be a serious crisis, jeopardizing the basic foundations of the nation and threatening its survival.” Keep this in mind the next time someone talks to you about over-population.

Prayer: Lord, continue to make your people fruitful. Bless all nations with the gift of life and the joy of welcoming it. Amen.

Today’s Pro-Life Reflection: The destiny of the human person is the heights of heaven.

“To anyone who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne” (Revelation 3:21).

Reflection: Milwaukee police found children were throwing things off a bridge one day. When the police asked the children what they were throwing, they answered, “Little people.” The police then saw the small containers of tiny babies that had been aborted in a nearby abortion clinic and left in the garbage bin. The destiny of the human person is the heights of heaven. That’s why we can’t ignore it when people are thrown in the garbage.

Prayer: Lord, may your awesome promise to humanity inspire our pro-life efforts. Amen.

Today’s Pro-Life Reflection: The injustice of abortion is hidden.

This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at:

“Like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience and the air of national opinion before it can be cured” (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 1963).

Reflection: The injustice of abortion is hidden. We must expose it through pictures and descriptions of the procedure and testimonies of those wounded by it.

Prayer: Lord, you are the light that exposes darkness. May we expose and overcome evil. Amen

Fr. Frank Pavone calls for Calm and Avoidance of Rash Judgment


Information is very sketchy about the currently active shooting situation in Colorado Springs. The Planned Parenthood was the address given in the initial call to the police, but we still do not know what connection, if any, the shooting has to do with Planned Parenthood or abortion.


As leaders in the pro-life movement, we call for calm and pray for a peaceful resolution of this situation.


What is motivating this shooting will become clearer in due time. We ask that in the meantime, nobody jump to conclusions regarding the connection between this violence and the controversy over abortion and Planned Parenthood, and we ask that people do not use this situation to inflame emotions on either side of the abortion issue.

Wisconsin Law Struck Down by 7th Circuit

Today, I criticized a Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision striking down Wisconsin’s law requiring abortionists to have local hospital admitting privileges.


“The two judges who struck down Wisconsin’s law did so because one clinic in the state couldn’t find abortionists with hospital admitting privileges…”

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Politics of Human Dignity


“Any politics of human life must work to resist the violence of war and the scandal of capital punishment. Any politics of human dignity must seriously address issues of racism, poverty, hunger, employment, education, housing, and health care” (US Bishops, Living the Gospel of Life, n. 23). 

Reflection: Care for human life is multi-faceted. That doesn’t mean anyone has to try to do everything. It means that we have concern for all people, and that we realize that progress in any area of human dignity facilitates progress in every other area.

Prayer: Lord, as progress is made for human rights, may all people, born and unborn, reap the benefit. Amen.
