My book – “Abolishing Abortion” – was released TODAY!
And if all goes according to plan, today is the day we land
a knockout punch on the chin of the abortion industry. Which
is why I’ve sent you this terribly urgent and important
Here’s what I’m hoping you will do in reply:
Make a much-needed contribution to Priests for Life
so we can send a copy of “Abolishing Abortion” to every
bishop, priest, seminarian, deacon and diocesan Pro-life
Director in the country.
That’s roughly 60,011 books!
It will cost just over half a million dollars – $540,099 to
be precise – to complete this project.
And there’s absolutely no way we can do this without you and
the rest of the Priests for Life family taking ownership of
the project and doing the heavy lifting required to make it
But before you decide how best to help, let me tell you
about the book and why I’m convinced “Abolishing Abortion”
can have a major impact in our fight to make abortion, not
merely illegal, but even more importantly, unthinkable.
For one thing, this is not just another book about abortion.
It’s a PRO-LIFE MANIFESTO!
Through its 220 pages I reveal the heart and core of my
passion to end child killing in the hope that I can pass
that passion along to others.
That’s because “Abolishing Abortion” goes to the core of
what we have to do to end abortion.
- It calls upon both the
church and the state to rise up to their
responsibilities towards protecting children in the
- It openly and honestly
discusses the failures of both the state and the church
in this regard.
- And it offers practical
solutions, strategies, and steps forward that you and
every pro-life activist in the country can take to end
the greatest evil of our day.
But that’s not all.
“Abolishing Abortion” will strike a chord with everyone
who’s frustrated with how little our churches do about
elections and politics.
You’re probably among this group of pro-life warriors.
And you, like me, are probably tired of hearing the whining
about losing our tax-exempt status.
Well let me tell you, there are some hard-hitting chapters
in “Abolishing Abortion” where I challenge Church officials
to come clean with the laity and explain their unfounded
fear of the IRS.
Once members of the clergy read “Abolishing Abortion”
they’ll have no more excuses. Even more importantly,
they’ll have all the ammunition they need to get actively
involved in the nation’s political system – including the
distribution of voter guides and other election-related
projects – so that parishioners can use the political
process to advance the cause of LIFE in America.
That’s because my book is loaded with facts. For
example, Chapter 7 – “Proof of Passivity” – is loaded with
documentation – memos, letters and what have you – that
Church bureaucrats sent to parishes about what was legal
when it comes to election activity. For the most part,
those bureaucrats GOT IT WRONG!!! Some did so through
negligence. Others because they support other agendas.
Most out of sheer ignorance.
But no matter the reason, “Abolishing Abortion” rips the
cover off these directives and makes it impossible for any
bishop, priest, diocesan expert or deacon to remove himself
from the abortion battlefield.
This is especially important now that the Supreme Court has
shown its hand and could conceivably make it easier for the
government to not only silence pro-life leaders like myself,
but to force us to comply with its efforts to expand
Of course, it goes without saying that Priests for Life will
never submit to such an order.
Still, how many pro-life leaders and organizations will be
able and willing to do that?
All of which is why it’s more important than ever that we
convince our Church leaders here in the U.S. to leave their
comfort zones and join us on the field of battle.
And “Abolishing Abortion” has the tactics and strategies
that will empower them do that.
How do I know?
Because of what people are saying about my book. For
example, not long ago I was with my friend Norma McCorvey.
You’ll probably remember that Norma is the “Jane Roe”
plaintiff of the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court case that
legalized abortion in 1973. After I gave her “Abolishing
Abortion” Norma said:
“Fr. Frank Pavone has been my friend since 1995 and was the
catalyst that brought me into the Catholic Church. He is a
guide for our movement. I pray that Church leaders and their
congregations will follow his message in his new book,

about my book.
But there’s one I want to emphasize. It’s from Teresa
Tomeo who – along with Janet Morana, the Executive Director
of Priests for Life – co-hosts The Catholic View for Women.
“This book is a light in the darkness of the culture of
death. It pierces the fog which the abortion industry,
and those who aid and abet them, try to cast over our nation
and over the Church. When you read Abolishing Abortion, you
will come away not only saying, ‘No more excuses’ but ‘what
can I do to make a difference?’”
That last point Teresa makes is important because
“Abolishing Abortion” itemizes no fewer than TWENTY
DIFFERENT things you and your fellow pro-life champions can
do right now to help win the fight against abortion.
These recommendations come from my thirty plus years of
fighting the abortion industry and all those who help
perpetuate its lies – whether knowingly or unknowingly.
Again, though, the key to maximizing the impact and
effectiveness of “Abolishing Abortion” lies with our Church
leaders. Which is why I go great lengths to point out
the mistakes Church leaders have made in the past, while at
the same time exhorting these leaders that there’s still
time – but just barely – for them to get out there and lead
the People of LIFE to victory.
They’ve got to ACT NOW if they’re going to do as God calls
them to do and be leaders in this fight.
Which is why it’s so important for us to send copies of
“Abolishing Abortion” to every bishop, priest, deacon,
seminarian and diocesan pro-life director in the country.
All 60,011 of them!
I told you the total cost to do this is over half a million
dollars. Realizing that’s too much to do at one time,
I’ve broken the project into segments. The first of
which is to send copies of “Abolishing Abortion” to the
3,228 priests who’ve been the most actively involved with me
and Priests for Life for the past several years. These
men are totally committed to the fight and will use
“Abolishing Abortion” as a guide on how to bring their
parishioners into the fray.
At $9 to purchase and ship each book, that comes to a more
The gift I’m counting on you to make today will
allow Priests for Life to send “Abolishing Abortion” to some
of these 3,228 engaged pro-life priests.
