Praise for Kentucky governor for his leadership on life


“Kentucky is blessed to have a governor who leads by serving,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Governor Bevin’s immediate action to sign the new informed consent for abortion law is a great act of service not only to pregnant mothers, but also the state as a whole.  The more women know about abortion and its alternatives, the more women will choose life.”

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: He Will Judge the World with Justice


“He will judge the world with justice and the nations with equity.” (Psalm 96:13) 

Reflection: Some abortion advocates oppose “litmus tests” for judges. But if a judge had written an opinion in a law review about why women should not have the right to vote, wouldn’t that be enough to disqualify him from being confirmed? The fact is that we use litmus tests all the time, because certain lines should never be crossed. The killing of children by abortion is one of them.

Prayer: Lord, Judge of all, give wisdom to those entrusted with the task of human judgment, and let those who select them be guided by your righteousness. Amen.

“Make no mistake, those Members of Congress who voted to uphold the President’s veto also voted to endorse the killing of over 300,000 unborn babies a year by Planned Parenthood,” said Fr. Pavone.  “When a business like Planned Parenthood aborts children in the womb, it doesn’t matter what else it does – any money added to its revenue stream is money that facilitates the taking of innocent life.”

Informed Consent bill called “good first step for Kentucky”

“It’s encouraging that after years and years of blocking any and all pro-life legislation passed by the State Senate, the Kentucky House has approved a modest bill to have abortion clinic staff actually answer women’s questions about abortion in person,” said Fr. Pavone.  “That the vote to approve this measure was so overwhelming shows that there is much more that Kentuckians want their legislators to do to protect life.”

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: Be Like Him


“Be fruitful and increase in number” (Genesis 1:28).

Reflection: God Himself is fruitful. Love always overflows into life. By commanding us, as a human family, to be fruitful, God is commanding us to be like him. He wants us to share the joy he has of giving new life. God’s Word counts fertility as a great blessing and sign of his favor.

Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the gift of fertility that you have given to the human family. I pray today for those who are trying to conceive but are having difficulty. Give them the blessing and joy of new life. Amen.

Fr. Pavone: 2016 Voters Also Selecting SCOTUS Justices


“Voters will decide this week and this year who will lead our country for the next four or, if that person is re-elected, eight years,” added Fr. Pavone.  “That president will have in his or her hands the power to pick the justices who will likely decide whether abortion on demand continues for the next 30 or 40 years.  We will be voting not just for our own futures, but for those of millions of unborn children as well.”

Today’s Pro-life Reflection: There is Freedom


“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. ” (2 Cor. 3:17) 
Reflection: A teenager in Oregon went to a legal clinic for an abortion. When she tried to leave a waiting room in order to get more information about the procedure, she found that the door to the room was locked from the outside! She never got her questions answered, nor was she told about the risks of abortion. She sued the clinic and won.

Prayer: Lord, the spirit of abortion is a spirit of slavery. Let your freedom shine forth, bringing truth, strength to do what is right, and the triumph of life. Amen!

Today’s Pro-Life Reflection: Many who used to perform abortions have now also repented…

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

“On seeing what had taken place, the centurion praised God and said, ‘Surely, this man was innocent.’” (Luke 23:47)

Reflection: When Jesus died on the cross, the Centurion standing next to him repented of participating in his crucifixion.  Many who used to perform abortions have now also repented, and they say, “Surely, these were innocent lives, and we are sorry.” They have formed a group called the Society of Centurions. They seek God’s healing and invite other abortionists to stop the killing.

Prayer: Lord, I pray today for the Centurions. Now that they have stopped killing children, let them find your healing and peace. Amen.
