“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.

New Catholic Polling Data Shows How
Much Work We Still Have To Do!

And we only have SIXTY DAYS left to do it!

 
 

July 26, 2016

Did you see the news story?  The latest polling data on Catholic voters?  I’ll share the news with you in a moment. 

What I will tell you now, however, is that the new polling data clearly demonstrates that our work to awaken the American conscience to the horror of abortion and use the political process to help us stop the brutal killing of our unborn brothers and sisters is more important now than ever before.

But here’s my problem and why I’m coming to you with so much urgency today.

We only have TWO SHORT MONTHS to make an impact with our fellow Americans.  Just sixty days. Your immediate help is needed today!

For one thing, we only have SIXTY DAYS left to make a difference this election.  Just 60 short days.  Labor Day is right around the corner.  Till then, most Americans are still in “summer vacation” mode and not paying too much attention to the election.

But this “vacation mode” also impacts their giving patterns.

And right now the “giving” to Priests for Life has slowed to a trickle.  So I’ve sent you this urgent appeal for help in the fervent hope that …

… you will make a desperately needed contribution to Priests for Life and that you will do this now … before you go on to your next email.

That last request – that you do this now – is critical.

In fact, the size of your gift is not as important as is our need for you to make your donation right away.  In asking this of you, I know that I sent you an email a couple weeks ago and told you about the stack of bills that have piled up as a result of Priests for Life’s election-related work, as well as everything else we’re doing to lead the pro-life movement to victory over abortion.

Thankfully enough of your fellow Priests for Life family members pitched in and helped us put off having to cut back on any of our work. 

But that was a short-lived reprieve.  Donations are still sluggish due to this being the middle of summer. 

So much so, in fact, that I have to come to you again and ask for help so that Priests for Life can carry out all that we have planned for the stretch run of the election season, specifically from Labor Day to Election Day.

Here’s why it’s so important that we do this.

The candidates and political party platforms in the 2016 election demonstrate a stark contrast between those of us who cherish the wonder and dignity of human life … and those who fail to recognize God as the Author of all human life.  Between those of us who will fight to protect the lives of the youngest members of our human family … and those who use abortion as a weapon to advance a deadly culture of death.

You and I are solidly in the PRO-LIFE camp.  For us, there is no more important issue facing America today than the evil of abortion.

Knowing this, and knowing how committed you are to the fight to end abortion, I have devoted all of Priests for Life’s time, energy and limited financial resources to making sure our fellow Americans fully understand two things:

1.Abortion corrupts our entire society.  It leads to multiple other forms of violence in our nation, the breakup of the family, and the downward spiral of public morality.  And that the only way to bring peace to our nation, our cities, our communities and our families is to end the violence of abortion.  Period.

2.That in order to save this nation for future generations, it is vital that all pro-life Americans go to the polls on Election Day and VOTE FOR LIFE!

As you know from my prior emails, you and the Priests for Life family have a unique and vital role to play in the 2016 election.  In fact, as I’ve told you, we’ve been asked to spearhead a critical Catholic Outreach project with the goal to get millions of pro-life Catholics registered to vote in November and then help to drive voters to the polls on Election Day 2016.  Well, included in this group are …

… our brothers and sisters in the Hispanic community.

I say that because of the latest polling data of Catholics for the 2016 Presidential election.  According to the Pew Center Research firm:

-There’s a stark racial divide running through American Catholic attitudes, with white Catholics almost evenly divided between the two major candidates while Hispanics support the Democrat nominee by a wide 77% to 16% margin.

-To the extent a religiously defined segment of the American population is up for grabs, at least in terms of which candidate will capture a majority of its votes, it’s likely white Catholics.

-The remainder of Catholic respondents said they either didn’t know which candidate they support, or planned to support someone else.

I’m telling you this news for the simple reason that it shows just how much work we still have to do among our fellow Catholics if we’re going to achieve our goal of getting enough faithful Catholics to vote their pro-life principles on Election Day.

Remember, when you and the Priests for Life family were asked to spearhead this work, the politically savvy leader who approached me said:

“You’re the only ones who can do this with the Catholics.”

He’s right.  We are.  We know this because of how successful our Priests for Life efforts were in with the Catholic Outreach movement in 2000 and 2004. 

Now we need to do it again.

That’s especially true when you realize that some FOURTEEN MILLION pro-life Catholics sat out the 2012 election and did not vote.  And because they didn’t, Barack Obama was re-elected, and along with him, the “War on the Unborn” that he unleashed in 2008.

We cannot allow that to happen this year.  So over these final two months of the election season we’re not going to waste precious time and resources trying to convert pro-abortion “Catholics.”  We’ll concentrate on them after the election.

Our focus over these final sixty days before Election Tuesday is on those 14,000,000 Catholics who sat out the last election.  We simply have to get re-engaged in the political process and drive them to the polls on Election Day.  To do this Priests for Life has put together a nationwide network of dedicated pro-life activists who are using the tools and resources we’ve sent them to:

  • Educate people about Catholic principles when it comes to voting
  • Create a grassroots mobilization of voters
  • Motivate people to register to vote
  • Get people to the polls during “early voting” days and on Election Day
  • Generate maximum Catholic impact on the election

In recent weeks I’ve sent you our plans for doing this.  Parish mission trips … Internet videos on abortion … Speaking engagements at pro-life events … Guest editorials in newspapers … Our “Defending Life” programs on EWTN … Appearances on news programs and talk radio … Our bulletin inserts … and “Voting With a Clear Conscience” booklet … my two books: “Proclaiming the Message of Life” for clergy and “Abolishing Abortion” for lay activists … special “Voter Guides” that address vital issues of importance for Catholic voters.  And more.

One project I haven’t mentioned enough is our work in the Hispanic community.  In cities all across America we are working with pro-life heroes to remind these good people of their rich Catholic and PRO-LIFE heritage.  All of our Priests for Life resources and broadcasts are translated into Spanish.

And as the polling data I shared with you a moment ago clearly demonstrates, this work is more important than ever if we are going to use the political process to help advance the fight to end abortion.  That’s why I’ve asked you to make a special contribution today.  Call it an “End of Summer Emergency Campaign” or whatever else you’d like.  But the bottom line is the same:

Come Labor Day and the final sixty days of the election season, Priests for Life has to have a vocal and active presence with our fellow Catholics – and especially our Hispanic brothers and sisters – or we face the real danger of living under a tyrannical having a government that will actively seek to silence our voice and punish us for opposing the crime of abortion.

For the sake of all future generations we must not allow that to happen on our watch.

Which again is why I’ve committed the full force and energy of Priests for Life to making sure our fellow Catholics – and especially those 14,000,000 Catholics who sat out the 2012 election – know what’s expected of them on Election Day, that they are registered to vote, and most important of all, that they are committed to voting their pro-life principles on November 8.

Again, there are fourteen million faithful, pro-life Catholics in this country who voted in the 2000 and 2004 elections but who sat out the 2012 election.  We simply must re-engage these good people or I fear for our country … and especially our unborn brothers and sisters.

That said, please click here right now and make the very best donation to Priests for Life that you can.  If Priests for Life doesn’t do this work it won’t get done.  But we cannot fulfill this important mission without your help.

Hopefully you are in a position to send twice as much as you usually do.  Unfortunately I don’t have your giving history in front of me right now.  But I know you’ve always been generous.

Remember: We only have sixty days to wake those 14,000,000 dormant Catholics from their slumber and convince them to join us on Election Day as we vote to save America.

Thank you for doing this.  Like I said, your donations are what make all of our work possible.

And because they do and because I know the sacrifices you make to support Priests for Life’s work, I will continue to do as I have done ever since you joined the Priests for Life family, and that is remember you at every Mass that I offer; as will all the priests of Priests for Life.

I look forward to hearing from you today and I pray that God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director
Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries
