“In our present times there is an urgent need to promote a culture of life and also to undertake direct actions that help protect the life of the weakest, especially the unborn. For that reason the work done by ‘Priests for Life’ deserves the gratitude and support of the whole Church.”

- Cardinal Stanislaw Rylko, President, Pontifical Council for the Laity, Vatican City State, June 7, 2011.

Dear Friends,

Priests for Life is on the front lines of the effort to end abortion, and to energize the Church at all levels in this task. Our financial support comes entirely from people like you!  We do not receive monetary support from diocesan or national Church structures.

I need your help today, and so do the unborn. Thank you in advance.

We Need Your Help to Refute Their Lies

We Need Your Help to Refute Their Lies  


Have you seen their ad?  Or heard about it? 

It’s called: “Abortion in Good Faith” and it’s a product of the deceptive pro-abortion group called “Catholics” for Choice.  I put the word “Catholics” in quotation marks because this group is anything but Catholic.  And our bishops have made that clear publicly.

Help Priests for Life refute the deceptive and misleading ads a “Catholic” pro-abortion group is using to confuse Catholic voters just before the election!

If we’re going to keep pro-abortion extremists from gaining full control of our government this coming Election Day – and by “full control” I mean the White House, Congress and our federal courts … including the Supreme Court – then we have got to get the TRUTH out to Catholics all across the country about what the Church clearly teaches regarding abortion and how they are called to respond at the ballot box this election.

Make no mistake: This election presents stark contrasts in the two candidates and the two major political parties.

That was made crystal clear during this past Sunday’s debate. 

We also learned what the 2016 Presidential election is really all about:

Control of the Supreme Court for the next generation!

Will it go in the direction of keeping an invented right to child-killing legal in America? 

Or will it go in the direction of actually following the Constitution?

The difference in the candidates’ answers – as well as the Party Platforms – couldn’t be clearer or more important.  And whoever controls the composition of the Supreme Court in the next four years will, in an untold number of ways, control the direction of the country for the next generation.

And that’s the number one reason why Priests for Life is taking concrete action to refute “Catholics” for Choice ads and why I’ve written you this urgent letter.  I’ll spell out exactly what we have planned in just a moment. 

Before I do, however, I need you to:

Help Priests for Life conduct a last-minute campaign with Catholics and convince them that they have a grave moral duty to protect life when they cast their ballot on Election Day.

What makes your financial support even more important today is the fact that the abortion supporters at CFC are not the only ones sowing seeds of confusion right now.

Some people – even religious leaders – equate “climate change” to abortion and, instead of acknowledging the priority of problems like abortion and euthanasia, end up combining all the issues into one “common good” basket and then making it seem like it doesn't matter whom you vote for.

It’s that very kind of misguided counsel that has brought America to the brink of destruction.

We need loud, clear and passionate leadership in the fight against abortion, rather than this "all issues are equal" message that too many are giving.  We need to heed and repeat the teachings that the US bishops have already given us -- that the right to life is the foundation of all other rights. Otherwise, Catholics vote for people who have no regard whatsoever for that fundamental right.

And if left unchallenged this election, we’ll get more of the same on Election Day 2016.

That’s why Priests for Life is issuing a direct response to these false and misleading campaigns and why I am enlisting your desperately needed financial help to carry out this urgent project.

That response comes in the form of our own full-page ad that will run the week of October 24 and tell literally hundreds of thousands of Catholics what St. Mother Teresa, Pope St. John Paul II and our U.S. bishops all teach about the crime of abortion:

The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.

- St. Mother Teresa, National Prayer Breakfast 1994

Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights -- for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture -- is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination.

- Pope St. John Paul II -- Apostolic Exhortation Christifideles Laici

The failure to protect and defend life in its most vulnerable stages renders suspect any claims to the ‘rightness’ of positions in other matters affecting the poorest and least powerful of the human community.   

- U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Living the Gospel of Life, n. 23

In the light of these teachings, a Catholic voter’s number one priority in this and every election is to vote for those candidates who will protect and defend the unborn.  Period.   End of discussion.  Or as I’ve put it to you in other communications, to vote for public servants who know the difference between serving the public and killing the public.

This year in so many races the choice is quite clear.  Candidates are not hiding either their pro-life values or their strident pro-abortion position.

So we put together a side-by-side comparison of where the two major political parties stand on abortion.  You can read and download it, in English and Spanish, at

Our “Voter Guide” is very important because the people who win office on Election Day will be putting into positions of power individuals who will carry out the Party platform on abortion.  And for the most part, those individuals will be far more extreme in their passion to promote their particular agenda – whether pro-life or pro-abortion – than the official who appoints them.

So among other last-minute projects, Priests for Life is making our “Voter Guide” available to countless numbers of priests, deacons, lay Catholics and pro-life leaders.

But that’s far from all we’re doing:

  • We have three brand new “Defending Life” TV election-related programs that EWTN is broadcasting into 93 MILLION US homes.  Each one explains the Church’s call to be actively pro-life, especially as it relates to politics:

-Voting With a Clear Conscience: Explains the ten easy steps Catholics can use to apply Church teaching to their Election Day voting decisions.

-Ten Responses to Pro-Abortion Politicians Instructs viewers on how to respond to ten common statements that pro-abortion politicians make.

-Vote for Life Campaign: Teaches viewers that they are called to take concrete action to change the political landscape of the nation.

  • We’ve posted all official Church documents that have to do with protecting human life on the Priests for Life website:
  • We’re teaching local pro-life leaders how to identify and effectively respond to all misleading statements, whether from groups like CFC or official Church entities.
  • We’re distributing our “Election Tool Kit” to parish pro-life coordinators:

-Abolishing Abortion: My book which challenges both churches and individual Christians to full engagement in the fight to end legalized abortion in America.

-10 Responses to Pro-Abortion Politicians: Our brochure that answers the worn-out arguments often used by pro-abortion politicians. 

-Voting with a Clear Conscience: Another brochure that explains the Catholic citizen’s moral obligation to vote and take an active role in the nation’s political process. 

-A Study Guide to the US Bishops’ document Living the Gospel of Life: A Challenge to American Catholics.

-Church and Politics: Are We As Restricted As We Think? This document gives pastors a broader understanding of the law on what they can and cannot do during an election, and will help them fulfill their pro-life mission with greater confidence.

  • We have that comparison “Voter Guide” on the Republican and Democratic platforms on abortion for Catholics … in both English and Spanish … printed and an online version.
  • We’re training people on how to conduct “Get Out the Vote” drives in their parishes.
  • Plus …

We’re conducting our own ad campaign!

In addition to carrying those quotes I shared with you from St. Mother Teresa, Pope St. John Paul II and our own bishops …

… our ad is a direct challenge to religious leaders to rip off the muzzle of self-censorship and boldly proclaim Church teaching on abortion and political involvement from the pulpit!

For far too long now there’s been a deafening SILENCE from our pulpits about the grave moral evil of abortion.  As our Priests for Life letterhead says, the spirit God has given us is no cowardly spirit! We must courageously lead God’s people in the fight to end abortion. 

The silence cannot go on any longer if America is to survive as a nation.  That’s why our ad invites Catholics to go to their pastors and challenge them to speak out. 

If their pastor refuses, we urge people to respectfully ask them: Why won’t you?  Defenseless babies are dying by the millions.  Their blood is on our hands.  Why won’t you speak out against this crime?

We’ll run our ad in as many Catholic publications – including diocesan newspapers – as will have the courage to print it.  The ad will appear the week of October 24 so as to give priests enough time to get off the sidelines and make a difference on Election Day.

Today I urge you to get behind this powerful ad campaign because it could well be the difference between winning and losing on Election Day.

 This is without question one of the best and most effective ways for you and Priests for Life to respond to the lies which “Catholics” for Choice ads are telling voters; not to mention the “watered down” instructions many bishops are giving their parishioners. 

And with “Early Voting” having already begun in several states, it’s critically important that we be out there with our fellow Catholics and giving them the TRUTH about abortion, its dire consequences for our nation and their moral duty to vote their pro-life principles.

If we don’t set the record straight about the Church’s clear and unequivocal teaching against abortion, then millions of Catholics will be misled into thinking that it’s okay to support pro-abortion candidates and still be a faithful Catholic.

We can’t let CFC – or some misguided bishops or anyone else who professes to be a Catholic – get away with that.  And with your immediate and generous financial help today, we won’t.

So please, right now, before you move off this webpage and while you still have time to make a difference, CLICK HERE and make as large a donation to Priests for Life as you can.

When you do you will be doing your part to tell Catholic voters the TRUTH about their vote and pro-abortion candidates.

Without your help, we run the risk of Catholics being misled and voting into office a pro-abortion machine that will pack our courts – including the Supreme Court – and government agencies with pro-abortion fanatics.  That would mean the end of religious liberty in America and put the fate of the youngest members of our human family in the hands of Planned Parenthood and other abortionists.

Please don’t let that happen on your watch. 

In anticipation of your help today, I will remember you each time I offer Mass; as will all the priests of Priests for Life.  Thank you for urgently needed support and may God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Father Frank
National Director, Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries

P.S. Another reason we can use your financial help is because, unlike “Catholics” for Choice – which receives hundreds of thousands of dollars from pro-abortion billionaires Warren Buffett and George Soros … as well as from pro-abortion organizations like the Playboy Foundation and the Ford Foundation – our work is funded solely through the generosity of pro-life heroes like yourself.  We may not be able to boast the support of a pro-abortion financier like Bill Gates, but we have the contributions of pro-life champions like yourself to more than make up for it.  Plus we have something the pro-aborts will never have: THE TRUTH!
