Nellie’s Last Email to Me


I would like to share with you this morning excerpts from an email I received a matter of days ago from Nellie Gray. It was my last correspondence from her, following up on a meeting the two of us had a couple of weeks ago in which we discussed her vision for the upcoming March for Life on the 40th commemoration of Roe vs. Wade.

This email again expresses so well her heart and soul. May we all share it.

-Fr. Frank


Dear Father Pavone,

This is a follow-up note from the Meeting…

Of course, the purpose of the March for Life is still to overturn Roe v.Wade and gain protection for the right to life of each born and pre-born human – no exception and no compromise!  This purpose is expressed in the Life Principles which the March for Life Board of Directors adopted for the love of God at its beginning in 1973, and which we will continue to restate in prayer at our 40th annual March for Life, January 24-25, 2013.

ProLife Americans want “no exception” because that is the right and only position to take for our beloved country.  We cannot allow our country intentionally to kill even one preborn.  We can stop this killing when all of us who say we are “prolife” become unified on the Life Principles – no exception-no compromise – and vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. We can do that!

We view March for Life as all-American, all-inclusive, and we really hope that all prolife people and organizations will unify under one banner.

After 40 years and 55,000,000 killed preborn babies, we must get unity among prolife people to gain the “prolife strength and sound message”.  We shall unify and stop the evil of abortion because it is evil.

Thank you again, I needed that good talk.  Yes, we shall work together.

Sincerely in Life, Nellie

    Some of us in the movement are born leaders with vision, with purpose, in tune to the plans of the Father. Nellie Gray was such a one as this. Fashioned and purposed for our times, she blazed a trail that most of us could only follow in the cause of the sanctity of human life.

    I thank Nellie Gray for her heroism, her vision, her love for the unborn child, her hard and selfless work as she tirelessly labored in the fields.

    Now that she has left us, let us remember her heart, her cause, her purpose and carry on that one day America will be a place, a country where all are welcomed and none are spurned or killed due to inconvenience or selfishness. God bless Nellie Gray. God bless America.

    I pause as I read this because the unity stance exemplifies only Nellie Gray’s view, no exceptions. If only those in the pro-life movement could truly put aside their competition, we could do so much better. Nellie was a shining example to us all…spirited, humble, embodying true love and devotion…never followed by a camera crew or signing autographs…a true soldier for Christ. May God bless Nellie Gray!
