Today’s the Day!

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012





Friends,

I don’t need to tell you that the decisions Americans make today at the polls will determine the shape of America for decades to come. The choice of a President and a Congress, along with numerous other public officials, will determine the direction of countless policy decisions, the makeup of the Supreme Court, the lives of millions of unborn children, the religious liberty of our citizens, and the government’s view of marriage — just to mention a few things.

One day of voting — decades of consequences.

Please do the following things today:

a) If you have not already voted, please vote as early as possible.

b) Please reach out to other like-minded people — via phone, email, personal contact, Facebook, Twitter, etc. — and remind them to vote, offering them help to get to the polls if necessary.

c) Please send people one more time an invitation to see the videos at www.ElectionVideos.org; they will give them some good last-minute guidance on voting.

d) Please send people one more time the information about our voter guides at www.PoliticalResponsibility.com. They may contain the piece of information an undecided voter still needs to make up his or her mind.

e) Please join me, and ask others to join, in saying the Election Prayer at www.ElectionPrayer.com!

f) Finally, sign up to join me tomorrow night to discuss the results of the election. Go to www.ElectionWebcast.org and you will see how you can sign up and follow the webcast either online or by phone. It will be from 9 to 10pm and will feature our friends Dr. Deal Hudson, Deacon Keith Fournier, and Marjorie Dannenfelser of SBA List.

Friends, I am confident we will have many pro-life victories today! Let’s keep working right up until all the polls are closed!

God bless you!

Fr. Frank

Father Scott Daniels makes TV debut tonight on “Defending Life”

Thursday, October 18th, 2012





Father Scott Daniels, O.P., a pastoral associate for Priests for Life, will have his television debut tonight as the new season of “Defending Life” kicks off on EWTN.

Father Daniels has been passionate about pro-life issues since his seminary days in the 1980s. Since 2009, when he was granted permission to work full-time as a priest associate with Priests for Life, he has been traveling across the country, leading pro-life parish weekends, teaching school children and speaking at pro-life events.

Tonight’s show will focus on ways to evaluate candidates for political office.

“I am thrilled to have an opportunity to co-host ‘Defending Life’ on EWTN,” Father Daniels said. “Television gives us a unique opportunity to go into people’s homes to tell the truth about the issues that really matter. With Election Day less than three weeks away, what matters now is choosing the right candidate.”

Mrs. Morana agreed. “Voters must make sure they know how every candidate for every office feels about abortion,” she said. “The life issue is the most important at every level of government, because without the right to life, the rest of our rights are meaningless.”

The show can be seen on EWTN every Thursday at 11 p.m. and every Saturday at 2:30 a.m. It can be heard on EWTN Radio every Friday at 1 a.m., Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday at 5 a.m. (All times Eastern). The series also will feature Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life, as co-host, along with Fr. Denis Wilde, OSA, associate director.

EMERGENCY VOTE IN CONGRESS! This Bill will STOP “PAIN-CAPABLE” ABORTIONS!

Monday, July 30th, 2012





“Surprise” Vote Being Taken in Congress
in less than 24 hours! — Tuesday, July 31st.

QUICKDROP WHAT YOU’RE DOING!

We MUST Tell Congress to 
STOP LATE-TERM ABORTIONS NOW!

I’m sending this e-mail to you on Monday. (7/30)
The Emergency Vote in Congress is TOMORROW!!

 

PLEASE ACT NOW if I’ve reached you in time…

Dear Friends,

You’ve heard me use this quote many times before…

“A society will be judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members – the last, the least, the littlest.”

Abortion, of course, is the worst form of human mistreatment imaginable. It is the intentional destruction of an innocent human life at its most vulnerable stage: In the sanctity of a mother’s womb.

Here at Priests for Life, we work every day to make all abortion ILLEGAL once again – because intentionally killing a helpless innocent little baby can never be justified.

But when one actually considers the methods of abortion, it’s just too horrible to even contemplate. Yet is it 100% LEGAL — and growing in frequency every day.

I’m talking about the intentional killing by DISMEMBERMENT of LATE-TERM BABIES (third trimester) who are CAPABLE OF FEELING EVERY BIT OF THE PAIN of being torn limb from limb – just like you and I would!

You probably already know that late-term abortion IS legal in America—although states can add some restrictions.

And it is legal in WASHINGTON, D.C.

Now in some states, new laws have been passed stopping abortion after 20 weeks because of the child’s ability to feel pain. And that’s great news.

Well, there’s an EMERGENCY VOTE being taken TOMORROW MORNING on a new bill that will PROHIBIT abortions after 20 weeks in our nation’s capital.

It’s H.R. 3803, the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, often referred to as the “D.C. late abortion ban” for short.

And I need you to contact your Representative and STRONGLY URGE him or her to Vote FOR H.R. 3803.

Most people still don’t know that abortion is currently legal for ANY reason through ALL NINE MONTHS of pregnancy.

An abortion facility not far from the White House now advertises dismemberment (“D&E”) abortions on request, to 26 weeks of pregnancy — the beginning of the 7th month! There is nothing to stop abortionists from performing abortions even closer to birth — for a price.

What a disgrace to our nation!!! (And this is why Priests for Life is putting a lot of energy into raising awareness about dismemberment abortion! Educating people on this is one of our key projects.)

That’s why I’m happy to report that Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) has authored a bill that is now coming up for a vote on a “fast track” procedure that’s happening TOMORROW – JULY 31ST!

In the bill, Congress adopts findings that by 20 weeks after fertilization (if not earlier), the unborn child has the capacity to experience GREAT PAIN. The bill then prohibits abortion in the federal District after that point (the beginning of the sixth month).

This is the bill for which our Priests for Life team recently walked the halls of Congress, with some of our priests and Dr Alveda King. We were able to increase the number of co-sponsors of this legislation. And I want to thank our colleagues at National Right to Life for crafting this bill and lobbying for it so effectively!

And now, because of tomorrow’s vote, every member of the U.S. House of Representatives will have to go on record on whether abortion should be legal for any reason to the moment of birth.

Therefore…

If we can achieve a big majority on this groundbreaking initial vote, it will set the foundation to win legal protection for pain-capable unborn children in the not-distant future.

The pro-abortion fanatics are UP IN ARMS about this bill – because they know it could erode the entire “framework” of Roe v. Wade.

Listen: Babies are being BRUTALLY DISMEMBERED far past the point that they are capable of experiencing excruciating pain!!!
Congress and President Obama need to STOP this brutality by enacting the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, H.R. 3803, which would ban abortion after 20 weeks fetal age.

YOU MUST ACT NOW!

I apologize for the late notice on this… but this bill is coming up for a vote IMMEDIATELY!

As in TOMORROW MORNING!!!

That’s why I urgently need you to drop EVERYTHING you’re doing right now and CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSMAN as quickly as you can—telling him or her to VOTE “YES” ON H.R. 3803 – the “D.C. Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (or “DC Late Abortion Ban” for short).

Think about it: if H.R. 3803 passes…

WE COULD PUT THE LEGAL “NAIL IN THE COFFIN”OUT OF ROE v WADE!

So please… contact your local Congressman IMMEDIATELY.

And since the vote is TOMORROW, there’s ONLY TIME FOR E-MAILS or TELEPHONE CALLS.

If you don’t know who your current Congressman is or how to call him/her, there are several convenient ways to easily find out.

#1.) You can go right now to http://www.house.gov/ and enter your ZIP code and street address, and the web site will tell you who your Member of Congress is and what his/her office phone numbers are.

#2.) Look up your Congressman in your local phone book in the “Government” pages. Even calling the local office is better than nothing! The local office will call the Washington office and let them know they’re getting flooded with calls urging a YES vote on H.R. 3803…!

#3.) Or, call your local City Hall, the library, or your main newspaper and they can give you the Congressman’s contact information.

But no matter what it takes, DROP WHAT YOU’RE DOING and get your voice heard RIGHT NOW!

That’s because the vote on H.R. 3803 comes up on the floor of Congress TOMORROW MORNING

And We Can’t Afford To Be Even A MINUTE LATE On This!

Yes, it’s THAT urgent. (I wouldn’t pester you like this if it weren’t.)

Incidentally, they took us completely by surprise by sending this bill to the floor for a vote with virtually NO notice… because certain powers DON’T want this bill passed!

If you merely contemplate WHAT KIND OF PAIN AN UNBORN BABY MUST FEEL…

…WHEN HER ARMS AND LEGS ARE TORN OFF, AND HER HEAD IS CRUSHED…

… you’ll want to contact EVERY Member of Congress and MAKE SURE they ALL vote “YES” on H.R. 3803…!

Let them know that we’ll be closely watching their vote—ESPECIALLY since they’re all coming up for RE-ELECTION this November.

And what kind of a Congressman wants to be known as voting to keep LATE-TERM ABORTION (for PAIN-CAPABLE babies) LEGAL???

This could be “the last straw” for millions of Americans who rightly detest late-term abortions because these acts of murder are so UNSPEAKABLE.

And with your help, dear reader, we can get H.R. 3803 approved when it gets voted on TOMORROW! (Wednesday, July 31st).

Hopefully you’ll read this e-mail in time!

But to achieve this timely victory…

YOU MUST ACT NOW!

Thank you, in advance, for your willingness to let your voice be heard.

God bless you!

Sincerely,

Fr. Frank Pavone

P.S. To help Priests for Life continue all our work to defend the sanctity of life at all stages—especially the defenseless unborn babies who are brutally and ruthlessly slaughtered EVERY DAY in our nation—we ask that you please remember us in all your prayers and all your intentions.

In addition, I ask that you also take a moment to show us your support by making a small donation—quickly and easily—by clicking here.

It is only with your prayers and financial assistance that we can carry on our fight against the government-funded, media-backed, entrenched killing machine known as The Abortion Cartel—which is right now throwing everything they’ve got into the halls of Congress to stop H.R. 3803 from outlawing their lucrative LATE-TERM abortion business in Washington, D.C.

The Abortion Cartel knows full well that they stand to LOSE EVERYTHING if H.R. 3803 passes in the House of Representatives—less than 24 hours from now, as I write this.

Therefore, please CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVE in Congress. PRAY that we achieve a miraculous victory for God and the babies. And SHARE this e-mail with everyone on your e-mail list right now, while you’re sitting at your computer.

Every time a Congressman hears from the voters, he’s hearing from THE BABIES.

Please… BE THEIR VOICE.

Take this life-saving action NOW.

Christian Duty

Monday, June 25th, 2012





 

 

 

 

 

 

Are Christians supposed to withdraw from the world or change the world? Christ  told us to make disciples of all nations. One way we do this is to vote, and to  elect candidates whose views reflect God’s laws. We believers are not  second-class citizens; we have a voice! Don’t stay home on election day.  Exercise your Christian duty to vote!
