Help get the government out of the baby-killing business

Help get the government out of the baby-killing business

 

January 31, 2017

Friends,

You need to take immediate action if you want to keep your tax dollars from funding the nation’s largest abortion business: Planned Parenthood.

A vote could come literally any day.  So please right now:

  • CALL your two U.S. Senators TODAY and tell them you do not want any of your tax money going to Planned Parenthood, but rather to healthcare centers that do not do abortions. Here’s the number for the Capitol Hill switchboard: (202) 224-3121
  • Then click here and make and make as large a donation to Priests for Life as you can so that Priests for Life can go out and recruit more pro-life Americans to join the fight to de-fund Planned Parenthood. 

It’s critically important that you take these actions today.

I’m asking for your immediate help because I believe this is our single best opportunity to get the federal government out of the baby-killing business once and for all.

As for your phone call I’m focusing first on the Senate because that is the harder place for this measure to pass.

We have to communicate with the House of Representatives too, but this task will certainly meet with success more easily there.  

That’s far from the situation in the Senate where self-proclaimed “moderates” – both establishment Republicans and “red state” Democrats – may be unwilling to take on the abortion industry over fear of being attacked as somehow “anti-woman.”

It’s going to take a lot to convince these “moderate” Senators to do what’s right by the youngest members of our human family and cut federal ties with Planned Parenthood.

And even though the evidence against Planned Parenthood is overwhelming, sadly there are many Senators – and we're speaking essentially about the Democratic Party – who are so deep in the pockets of Planned Parenthood that not even irrefutable evidence will sway them.

The only thing that will is a deluge of constituent mail.

If they know that voters will turn them out of office if they continue to give our hard-earned tax dollars to Planned Parenthood then and only then will act. 

That’s why your phone calls to your two U.S. Senators are so important … as is your donation to Priests for Life.   We desperately need your immediate financial help so that we can:

  • Go back to the tens of millions of good, faithful, pro-life Catholics we did so much to bring into the political process during the 2016 elections and get them engaged in this fight to end federal funding of Planned Parenthood.
  • Recruit MORE people to join this cause.  We have access to the names and addresses of literally millions of faithful Catholics who attend Mass every Sunday.  We need to get postcards and Planned Parenthood “Fact Sheets” to them and convince them to join us in getting the federal government out of the baby-killing business.

I am absolutely convinced that once we give these good people the facts … facts such as:

  • Planned Parenthood is the nation’s #1 provider of abortions
  • Planned Parenthood abortionists kill over 300,000 babies every year
  • One out of every four abortions in the U.S. take place in a Planned Parenthood abortuary
  • Planned Parenthood illegally harvests the body parts of babies and sells them for profit
  • Planned Parenthood receives $349 million federal tax dollars every year … a almost $1,000,000 a day

… they will be as outraged as you and I are and join us in bringing an end to this government handout.

Not only that but we’re going to de-bunk all the lies and half truths which Planned Parenthood and its apologists in the Senate spout.  For example you’ve probably heard or read that killing babies makes up a mere 3% of the “services” Planned Parenthood provides for women.

To begin with, even if it is “only 3%” that’s still no justification for Congress to give Planned Parenthood a million dollars a day so it can go on killing hundreds of thousands of children.

That’s the first thing to keep in mind. 

But it’s just as important to know how Planned Parenthood came up with this lie.  In a nutshell, Planned Parenthood took every single service its clinics offer women (such as pregnancy tests), lumped them all together and then came up with the bogus figure that the 300,000 babies it kills each year is a mere 3% of its “services.”

For Planned Parenthood officials killing a baby is the no different than doing a pap smear.

Another phony defense Planned Parenthood uses is its work to prevent breast cancer.  This is a sham on two fronts.

First there is documented scientific research that links breast cancer to abortion.

And second Planned Parenthood does NOT do mammograms.  Other agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), provide this coverage free of charge and with no ties to abortion.  But Planned Parenthood’s defenders insist that your tax dollars have to go to Planned Parenthood and women will be left without anyone to help them with their “health care” needs.

Since when is killing a baby “health care”?

In addition to all this is the shocking – but not surprising – fact that Planned Parenthood has waged genocide against the African-American community since its inception.  Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger publicly acknowledged her desire to wipe out Black people because she loathed them and called them “weeds.”

This fact confirms that Planned Parenthood is waging genocide against Black America.  Non-Hispanic black women make up about 6.6 percent of the population yet account for 35.7 percent of all abortions performed in the U.S.  Knowing this …

79% of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American and/or Hispanic/Latino communities.

That’s no coincidence. 

And yet to this day no one at Planned Parenthood has ever disavowed Margaret Sanger’s agenda. 

These are the kinds of facts Priests for Life is determined to give to those millions of faithful, pro-life Catholics you helped us educate and drive to the voting booths this past November.  And I am totally convinced that we can get them to help us get Congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood IF we can get the facts into their hands.

Whether or not we can is up to you and the rest of the Priests for Life family.  That’s because, as I’ve told you numerous times, everything we do begins and ends with you and your fellow Priests for Life ministry partners.

Even as you read this the Priests for Life staff is gathering the names and addresses of those millions of newly-activated Catholics and pro-life Americans that turned out on Election Day to help put in office pro-life candidates at all levels of government.

Our plan is send these millions of individuals “Planned Parenthood Fact Sheets” that document the abortion giant’s crimes against humanity and postcards they can sign and mail to their two U.S. Senators. 

We’ll also recruit people to make phone calls … just like I’m asking you to do right now.

In addition to mailing education packets directly to them in their homes we will also get in touch with them by way of:

-Email alerts

-Text messages

-Facebook posts

-YouTube videos

-Our “Defending Life” TV series that airs on EWTN

-Our 60-second radio spots

-… and a host of other vehicles.

As you can imagine the cost to carry out such a monstrous nationwide campaign is massive; upwards of $1,000,000 in round numbers.

But it’s vital we do this work.  Otherwise we run the very real risk of failing to capitalize on our Election Day triumphs and wasting all the hard work and sacrifices we made last year to help pro-life candidates win their elections.

The people we elected last November 8 cannot do our work for us.  There simply aren’t enough of them and they don’t have enough votes to defeat the abortion industry by themselves.  They absolutely must have our cooperation, our backing and our vocal support.

That’s what Priests for Life is out to give them.  Again, though, we can’t do this without you.

Every $5 you give today will allow Priests for Life to print and mail TEN education packets complete with postcards and Planned Parenthood “Fact Sheets.”  That’s why I’ve asked you to click here right now and make as large a donation to Priests for Life as you can.

There’s no telling how long this opportunity to win legal protections for the youngest members of our human family will last.  We simply have to take full advantage of the moment God has given us.  We must.

So please help. 

CALL your two U.S. Senators TODAY and tell them you do not want any of your tax money going to Planned Parenthood, but rather to healthcare centers that do not do abortions. Again, here’s the number for the Capitol Hill switchboard: (202) 224-3121

And click here to make that donation I’ve asked you for so Priests for Life can rally those millions of Catholics and pro-life Americans we activated for the 2016 Election and get them engaged in the fight to de-fund Planned Parenthood.   

Thank you for your attention to this and know that in appreciation for your cooperation and partnership in this project and all the life-saving work we do here at Priests for Life I will continue to remember you at each Mass I offer, as will all the priests of Priests for Life. 

Thank you again and may God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Frank Pavone
