Frequently Asked Questions about Priests for Life
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.
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
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
votes to get President Trump’s nominee
That’s what we face in this
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
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:
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
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
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
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
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
Keeping in constant contact
with these new-born activists using …
- Text messaging
- Linked In
- … 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
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
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, National Director
Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries
