God bless you for your kindness!  

You have to act quickly if we’re going to protect the Supreme Court

You have to act quickly if we’re going to protect the Supreme Court.

 

Friends,

Donald Trump plans to announce his choice to take the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s place on the Supreme Court in the next few days.

In any case, you and can’t take any chances on this one.

If President Trump keeps to his word – and I am convinced that he will – then the person he nominates to sit on the Supreme Court is a person who will not only protect your right to freedom of religion, but even more importantly help protect the lives of the millions of mothers and babies who are targets of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry.

I know that’s the kind of Justice you want on the Court. And because it is I am writing to encourage you with as much conviction as I can to help Priests for Life get that person confirmed.

Mark my words: That won’t be easy. Not by any stretch of the imagination. I’ll explain why in just a moment. Before I do, though, I need to ask you to …

make a donation to Priests for Life for as much as you can so that we
can do as we did during the 2016 election campaign and rally faithful, pro-life Catholics to make their voices heard in Washington, D.C. and get behind President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

Please try to make a donation of at least $25 … a gift of $50 would be especially helpful.

I’m asking you to prayerfully consider doing this because of all that’s at stake when it comes to the make-up of the Supreme Court.

With the loss of Justice Scalia there are now only three solid pro-life Justices on the Court as opposed to four abortion-on-demand apologists. Justice Anthony Kennedy seems to swing back and forth. That said it’s essential that President Trump’s choice be a pro-life champion. And the incoming President has promised to nominate just such a person.

Our job – which begins NOW – is to make sure that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell does whatever he must to get that person confirmed. There can be no settling for second best on this one.

But like I just said, the battle over the confirmation of President Trump’s nominee is not going to be easy.

The moment the President announces his choice the anti-life forces will strike. They have had months now to dig into the past of every one of the 21 potential nominees Donald Trump said he’d choose from. If past history is any indication you know these abortion extremists will pull quotes out of context and launch a vicious campaign claiming the nominee is “anti-woman.” They’ll fill up talk shows and newspapers and TV programs with these hate-filled attacks.

While they’re doing that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats will delay confirmation as long as they can … including the use of the filibuster. They’ll launch their own smear campaign knowing it will take sixty votes to get President Trump’s nominee confirmed.

That’s what we face in this battle.

But I’m not backing down one bit. In fact, Priests for Life has a plan in place that is specifically designed to help get President Trump’s nominee confirmed.

Unfortunately we cannot put this plan into motion without you and the rest of the Priests for Life family getting behind it and helping fund it.

And again, time is of the essence.

Priests for Life has to begin NOW to rally Catholics and pro-life Americans to get behind the President’s choice and flood the Senate with demands that it vote to confirm the person President Trump chose.

One of the arguments we will make with Senators is this:

Post-election voter surveys discovered that the Supreme Court was the number one issue for almost one out of every four voters. And of those individuals almost 60% of them voted for Donald Trump. That being the case, members of the Senate need to abide by the choice of the American voters and CONFIRM President Trump’s choice to the Supreme Court.

It is also clear from post-election analysis that voting pro-life was a key motivating factor for a very large portion of the electorate. In spite of these two motivating factors with voters, the fight over President Trump’s appointment to the Supreme Court is going to be a long, drawn-out fight.

Even as you read this the abortion industry – from Planned Parenthood to NARAL to the National Abortion Federation to The Center for Reproductive Rights and all the rest – is plotting to deny President Trump’s nominee a seat on the Court.

Cecile Richards and other pro-abortion extremists are not about to roll over and give President Trump his way on this. They will fight tooth and nail to keep abortion-on-demand the law of the land. And they’ll succeed if we fail to act as forcefully and as powerfully as we are capable of.

To see just how powerful the Priests for Life team can be consider what we achieved together just a couple months ago. When no one – and I mean no one – thought it possible for pro-life candidates to dominate the 2016 elections …

… the Priests for Life family came together, sacrificed, put their pro-life
vocations before everything else and helped turn the tide for the pro-life cause on Election Day.

Not long ago I sent you a detailed recap of everything you and your fellow Priests for Life family members enabled us to do. That work helped bring about a dramatic shift in how your fellow Catholics voted. Here are the numbers of the past three Presidential elections:

2008: Obama 54% to McCain’s 45%
2012: Obama 51% to Romney’s 48%
2016: Trump 52% to Clinton’s 45%

Was this the result of Priests for Life’s work alone? Of course not. But remember what political analyst Deal Hudson told you in that gracious note he wrote you a couple weeks ago:

No priest or religious had more impact on the Catholic and pro-life voters than Father Frank Pavone. And no Catholic organization had more impact than Priests for Life. To be perfectly candid, it's not even a close call!

The emphasis was in Deal’s original letter. That’s a credit to you and the Priests for Life family. But now we’ve got to do it all again if we’re to have any chance of winning the battle for the Supreme Court.

The main thing we have to do is to keep all those millions of Catholics and pro-life Americans we helped recruit for the 2016 Election fully engaged in the political process. That means:

 Mailing letters directly to them in their homes.

 Sending them regular emails with updates and specific actions to take.

 Providing local pro-life leaders with detailed instructions on how to rally their community to get the Senate to confirm President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

 Keeping in constant contact with these new-born activists using …
- Facebook
- Twitter
- Text messaging
- Instagram
- YouTube
- Linked In
- Pinterest
- … and several more platforms

 Producing more informative, action-oriented programs for our “Defending Life” series that airs on EWTN and is beamed into tens of millions of Catholic homes.

That’s the same strategy we used to pull off those incredible Election Day victories and, as the saying goes: “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”

So with the plan and strategy in place, the only hurdle we have to overcome now is coming up with the money to pay for it all.

Which is why I’ve sent you this urgent letter and my request that you make a donation for as much as you can.

The reason why I’m hoping you can do this right away is because President Trump may well announce his nominee to take Justice Scalia’s place on the Supreme Court this Friday, the very day he takes the Oath of Office.

With that as real possibility, it’s critically important that the Priests for Life family come together once more and work NOW to get the wheels in motion and help build up the support this nominee will need in order to be confirmed.

It’s going to take upwards of $1,000,000 to fund Priests for Life’s Supreme Court project so we’ll need every dollar you can spare. That said please be as generous as you can.

I’m fully confident we can pull this off if we set our minds to it and work together. And in the end, the benefit will far outweigh whatever it costs us to achieve it; namely, freedom of religion for ourselves and future generations. But even more important, protecting the inalienable and God-given right to life that every person is entitled to.

Thank for your urgently needed help today. I promise you that whatever size donation you’re able to make today … even if it’s only $25 – will be put to good and effective use. In humble appreciation for your sacrifice I will remember you at each Mass I offer; as will the other priests of Priests for Life. Thank you again and may God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Frank Pavone
