I truly fear for your right to fulfill your pro-life vocation.
That’s why I’ve sent you this urgent email.
I need to impress upon you the frightening reality that your right to fulfill your pro-life vocation and carry on your fight to end legalized abortion-on-demand in America is in grave jeopardy.
In fact, the next three months will play a critical role in determining whether or not you and Priests for Life will be able to continue our fight as publicly and as effectively as we have for the past twenty-five years.
For the sake of your pro-life mission and the fight to end America’s abortion holocaust you need to:
Make a special “Summer Pledge” that will allow Priests for Life to help you fulfill your pro-life vocation and keep all of our projects on track and moving forward from now until August 31!
I cannot overstate or over-emphasize the importance of your continued financial support throughout the summer.
To know why consider this.
Our current President and pro-abortion fanatics within his administration have made it clear that they want to silence your voice and make your pro-life work a crime.
The proof of this is irrefutable. Beginning with the 2009 Homeland Security document that called pro-life activists “hate oriented” and potential threats to commit acts of terrorism … to the HHS mandate that seeks to force us to participate in the killing of defenseless babies … to its obstruction of Congress’ efforts to de-fund Planned Parenthood.
So I ask you:
What’s to prevent the next President from issuing executive orders restricting certain public pro-life activities?
Or the next Congress from calling our pro-life messaging “hate speech” and forbidding certain forms of protest against abortion?
Or a stacked Supreme Court from declaring both actions legal?
The answer: NOTHING!!!
And while this show of force will never silence me or you or Priests for Life, I believe that it will drive many pro-lifers into exile and have a chilling impact on our ability to convince our fellow Americans to reject the lie of abortion and rid our nation of its scourge.
That’s why I told you that the next three months are absolutely critical to our fight to end legalized abortion-on-demand in America. We simply must do all we can to help elect men and women to positions of leadership in government who know the difference between killing the public and serving the public.
And because we must it’s crucial that you make a special “Summer Pledge” for as large a financial commitment as you can … for two reasons.
First, because the months of June, July and August are the time of year when donations take a predictable dip as many take a well-deserved and much-needed break from the rigors of daily life, and may not be as involved as usual in helping the pro-life movement.
For those of us here at Priests for Life, however, we are committed to remaining at our posts and carrying on the fight without any let up.
We do so because …
- … those who facilitate the killing of over 3,000 babies every day in our nation’s abortion mills do not take a break;
- … the most important election ever is reaching its fever pitch;
- … the Supreme Court is about to decide our Priests for Life vs. HHS case.
Because of all that, the priests and Pastoral Associates here at Priests for Life will be on full active duty throughout the summer.
But we desperately need your financial support so we can carry on our work, whether here at Priests for Life headquarters meeting the needs of the pro-life movement, or on the road preaching the Gospel of Life and energizing pro-life activists to get directly involved in the work of ending America’s abortion holocaust.
The second reason why your “Summer Pledge” is so important is because of all that’s riding on this year’s elections and the work Priests for Life has been asked to take on to help strong pro-life candidates win their elections.
Now like you I know that victory over abortion will not come through politics alone. Still those we elect to public office have a direct impact on our work. They can help advance it or seriously hinder it (as we’ve seen with the current Presidential Administration). And this year’s Presidential and Congressional elections have an added level of importance because the next President will nominate several Justices to the Supreme Court and the Senate will confirm or reject them.
Whoever controls the White House and Senate after the 2016 elections will therefore shape the Court.
That’s why Priests for Life is pulling out all the stops to help elect pro-life candidates to office this November.
To do so, however, Priests for Life will need to be at full financial strength throughout the summer and all the way up to Election Day in November.
For one thing we have to carry out all that I outlined for you in Priests for Life’s Confidential: Election 2016 Plan of Action. Hopefully you read that Report when I sent you the link to it a couple weeks ago. If you didn’t read it over then, you can click here to do so today.
In any case, you and the Priests for Life family have been given a special mission; namely, to spearhead a Catholic Voter Outreach campaign that, if successful, could tip the scales in favor of pro-life candidates all across the country.
That special mission alone will cost upwards of $450,000 to pull off. And keep in mind, that is only ONE of several key projects Priests for Life must conduct over the next three months.
- Helping bishops and priests proclaim the Gospel of Life to their flocks
- Generating a nationwide tidal wave of support for the House Select Panel that is investigating Planned Parenthood and the illegal sale of baby body parts
- Conducting all-important parish mission trips throughout the summer where we actively engage pro-life Catholics and get them involved in the fight to end abortion
- Distributing the findings of the Priests for Life Legal Symposium that explains to bishops and priests of all they can do during an election campaign
- Replenishing our Legal Fund. This is important because our Supreme Court case against the HHS mandate of ObamaCare is coming to a climax and there is still a lot of work to do both before and after the decision.
That’s just a snapshot of some of our most important work. There’s so much more our priests and Pastoral Associates need to be doing this summer.
But as you know from your time as a Priests for Life ministry partner, it’s during the summer months of June, July and August when donations typically drop … oftentimes significantly.
Well, if ever there was a summer when Priests for Life needed to be driving full steam ahead, this is that summer.
And to make sure we do, I’m counting on you and your fellow Priests for Life family members to make the sacrifices needed to sustain your financial support. I’m asking you to prayerfully consider making a 3-Month Pledge because Priests for Life is the only organization that has the expertise and manpower to take on the special missions that have been assigned to us.
But exactly how much we’ll be able to do depends entirely on YOU and your fellow ministry partners.
The simple fact of the matter is that we can only do what you allow us to do. Make no mistake:
YOUR PRO-LIFE MISSION
– indeed, the entire pro-life movement –
is in GRAVE JEOPARDY!
And it will take roughly $1,200,000 to fund all of Priests for Life’s work over the next three months so we can protect your right to fight against abortion, increase your effectiveness as a pro-life evangelist, help pro-life men and women win their elections this November and bring our nation closer to the day when we win victory over abortion.
Fortunately we don’t need to raise our entire $1,200,000 summer budget at one time, although that would be a tremendous blessing. All I want to do is raise $400,000 each month for the next three months.
In order to help Priests for Life meet those monthly budget goals and protect your pro-life mission, please make a Summer Pledge today!
Here is a list of the Pledge amounts that will enable Priests for Life to raise our entire summer budget:
3 people to Pledge $25,000 each = $ 75,000
6 partners to Pledge $10,000 each = $ 60,000
28 co-workers to Pledge $5,000 each = $140,000
200 individuals to Pledge $1,000 each = $200,000
500 supporters to Pledge $500 each = $250,000
500 associates to Pledge $250 each = $125,000
1,500 members to Pledge $100 each = $150,000
4,000 pro-life warriors to Pledge $50 each = $200,000
A total of 6,737 friends and supporters Pledging $1,200,000 to Priests for Life
Prayerfully consider making one of those Pledge amounts and make it a tangible sign of your deep commitment to the mission of ending America’s abortion holocaust.
All I ask of you is that you be:
