TITUSVILLE, FL – Forty national pro-life leaders from around the country will join local, state and federal elected officials, pastors, supporters, staff and volunteers at the official grand opening of Priests for Life’s new headquarters here on Saturday, April 28.

At 11 a.m., Carol Fondo, director of member services for the Titusville Chamber of Commerce, will cut the ribbon outside the 20,000-square-foot building at 5211 South Washington Ave. that was formerly known to local residents as the “Patch building” for the family that built the structure and ran a printing operation for many years.

“We’re excited to celebrate Priests for Life at the grand opening of their headquarters in Titusville,” Ms. Fondo said. “We wish them much success in the future.”

Father Frank Pavone, National Director, explained that the international pro-life ministry had been headquartered in Staten Island, New York, for more than 25 years but made the move to Titusville to a larger facility, and in a state that is much friendlier to its pro-life mission. It’s also the first time Priests for Life has owned its own building.

A special guest who will be in attendance Saturday is U.S. Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL), whose 8th congressional district includes Titusville.

“I am honored to help in welcoming Priests for Life to their new home in Titusville, Florida,” the congressman said. “Of all the rights and privileges that we Americans enjoy today, there is none more important than the right to life and we should work to ensure that even the most vulnerable among us are protected.”

Titusville Vice Mayor Matt Barringer and Florida State Rep. Erin Grall (District 54) also will attend. A spokeswoman for Ms. Grall said that although her district does not include Titusville, she is attending to show support for Priests for Life’s pro-life mission.

“We have been welcomed with open arms, and we are very much enjoying getting to know our new neighbors, locally and throughout the state,” Father Pavone said.

The building had been vacant for at least five years and extensive renovations were done to the interior over the course of a year. The move from Staten Island required five tractor-trailers that made the trip in the summer of 2017.

In addition to office and meeting space, the building features a chapel, radio studio, state-of-the art television studio and a warehouse to contain Priests for Life’s vast collection of pro-life books and resources. Tours will be given following the ribbon cutting.

Some Staten Island staffers made the move to Titusville and many local residents have been hired to fill positions.

“We’re still looking for some key people to round out our staff,” said Janet Morana, Executive Director.
Members of the Priests for Life Pastoral Team, including Father Pavone and Mrs. Morana, travel all over the country and the world, speaking at churches, schools and pro-life gatherings.

Priests for Life was formed in 1991 as an outreach to Catholic priests, but has since expanded to include a dozen widely diverse, interdenominational ministries, including Rachel’s Vineyard, the world’s largest ministry for healing after abortion; the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, a mobilization of mothers and fathers who regret their abortion experiences, and Civil Rights for the Unborn, headed by Alveda King, the niece of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King.

“We feel very privileged to be part of the Titusville revival,” Father Pavone said. “The Space Coast is a very exciting place to live right now. And to make it easy for people to reach us, we have one of the simplest numbers in our 321 area code: 321-500-1000.”

“The rocket launches are the icing on the cake,” Mrs. Morana added.

Media are welcome to the grand opening and can schedule interviews with Priests for Life personnel before the event. To arrange an interview, contact Leslie Palma, communications director, at 732-757-9087 or media@priestsforlife.org

Presidential Appointment, Black History Tour, Ram in Thicket, CBC Fallout signal One Blood Racial Reconciliation

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

180208 blog image

Starting with a new Presidential Appointment, Black History Month is full of surprises this year.

President Donald J. Trump has honored one of my heroes, Frederick Douglass with the empowering of “The Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission.” It’s a blessing to serve America as a new member of the Commission.

Moving ahead, let’s reflect on the President’s campaign promises to address racism by ensuring us that “when we give everyone a great America; safety, security, a reason to belong, that will serve the issue.” The President also stated early on in his post as Commander in Chief, that: “No matter what color our skin is, we all bleed red.” His insight into the One Blood truth, coupled with his frequent reminders that: “We don’t serve government, we serve God; in God we trust” are encouraging to say the least.

The month started off with the launch of my annual Black History Tour; this time from Titusville, FL – new home of Priests for Life where I’m Director of Civil Rights for The Unborn. It was a blessing to visit local schools and the Titusville campus of Eastern Florida State College.

Meanwhile, the Congressional Black Caucus sat down on the job during President Trump’s inspiring State of the Union Address. The petulant actions of the majority of The CBC are crippling the dreams of America, and must be addressed; expect to hear more from activists for genuine social justice this month.

It was also a blessing to give a “Black History Shout Out” at the 2018 Rose Day Rally in Oklahoma.

It’s also important to note that while we are One Blood/One Race (Acts 17:26), the Black/African American Community still celebrates a month of educating the masses regarding many notable contributions of Blacks in America that are unknown and undocumented in certain historical annals. These efforts are designed to unite us; never to divide us. Herein is a key to unlocking Racial Reconciliation.

There’s been a flurry of discourse regarding the Dodge Ram commercial featuring the voice of MLK with community service as a theme. On a positive note, many are saying that the ad sparked them to find the entire MLK speech and listen to it. That’s millennials for you; ever seeking truth. The line about “a heart to serve” with the ultrasound of the baby’s heartbeat was definitely a kind of Ram in the Bush “aha” moment.

Coming up this month:
White House Black History Event
Launch of King Family Legacy Library at Millennium Gate Museum

Finally, please remember to pray for America, and watch out for KING TRUTHS and the upcoming Roe v Wade movie.

Too late for abortion in Texas? Go to New Mexico!

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

The 28th undercover recording released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life demonstrates the dire need for a federal law protecting children in the womb from abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Southwestern Women’s Surgery in Dallas, Texas is another abortion mill performing abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy on healthy babies who could live outside the womb if given the chance. In this recording the undercover caller probes the abortion worker by asking what would happen if she had to postpone her abortion beyond the 22-week Texas limit and is told that she would simply cross the state line from Texas to their sister clinic located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life issued the following statement today:

“By crossing the border from one state to another, a woman is able to obtain an elective abortion into the third trimester of pregnancy. Their sister clinic is the notorious Southwestern Women’s Options, which earlier in this investigation scheduled an undercover caller posing as 30 weeks pregnant for a third trimester abortion, simply because ‘life happens’ and having another child would put undue added strain on her marriage.

“As shocking as it is for the American people to learn about the prevalence of late-term abortions, it is equally disturbing that the abortion industry is capitalizing on the lack of a federal mandate to protect pre-born babies in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

Contact your Senators and urge them to support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act so that every baby over 20 weeks old in the womb is protected throughout this nation.”

Abortion Through 24 Weeks at Infamous New Jersey Mill

TITUSVILLE, FL – It’s all about choice at Metropolitan Medical Associates in New Jersey.

As part of its series of undercover calls to abortion businesses across the nation, Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico today released a call from the Englewood, N.J., facility that does abortions through 24 weeks for healthy mothers carrying healthy babies.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Bud and Tara Shaver, founders of Abortion Free New Mexico, released the following statement about the call:

“Metropolitan Medical Associates in Englewood, N.J. is another abortion mill in America that is performing late-term abortions on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies through 24 weeks of pregnancy. When the undercover caller clarifies, to make absolutely sure that she can have the abortion even though she and the baby are healthy, the abortion worker tells her that ‘It just has to be something that you want.’

“In too many states across this nation these abortions occur daily and are killing babies who can feel pain and are viable human beings. It is imperative that congressional leaders take these facts into account and vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in order to protect these helpless babies.”

To hear all the calls, go to PriestsForLife.org/LateTermAbortion. To contact your senator about supporting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, go to StopAbortionNow.org

In 2009, Metropolitan Medical paid $1.9 million in an out-of-court settlement brought by a woman who suffered a botched abortion there and later had to undergo a hysterectomy. On the premises, state health inspectors found a rusted crochet hook used to remove IUDs, as well as dirty forceps and a quarter-inch of dirt and debris under the examining tables. At the time, the business was performing 10,000 abortions a year.

Abortion to 22.5 Weeks, But Only for Healthy Mothers

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: December 7, 2017

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

TITUSVILLE, FL — Another undercover call was released today by Priests for Life, working in conjunction with Abortion Free New Mexico, revealing late -term abortions of healthy babies carried by healthy mothers in the state of Florida.

Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement about the call:

“Pro-abortion extremists demand that late-term abortions must remain legal in America for women whose lives are placed at risk if they don’t have access to them. This undercover investigation turns the tables on this pro-abortion fear mongering.

“In fact, in this new undercover phone call placed to Presidential Women’s Center in West Palm Beach, FL, the abortion worker tells the caller that a pre-screening is done before obtaining a late-term abortion at 22 weeks. The screening, however, is not to determine what life-threatening complication mandates the procedure; instead the abortion staffer reveals, ‘We want to make sure you’re healthy, that’s why we do the screening.’

“When the caller then specifically asks, ‘There doesn’t have to be anything wrong with the baby?’ to obtain the abortion, she is given an emphatic ‘No.’

“It’s time to move beyond the lies and disinformation being peddled by pro-abortion extremists. U.S. elected officials rely on accurate information and this investigation exposes that late-term abortions are being obtained by healthy women carrying healthy babies who by 20 weeks gestation are fully capable of feeling pain.

“Please share these undercover recordings with your U.S. Senators and urge them to support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1922.”

To take action on this bill, see the action alert at www.StopAbortionNow.org.

In Our Nation’s Capital, 26-Week Abortion Scheduled No Medical Emergency or Fetal Anomaly

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: November 30, 2017

732-757-9087

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today from his Washington, DC office:

“Here in our nation’s Capital, as in cities from coast to coast, healthy babies of healthy mothers are being killed at stages where they can survive outside the womb, as our 12th undercover phone call, released today, reveals.

“With the collaboration of our colleagues at Abortion Free New Mexico, these phone calls show that someone can easily make an appointment to have an abortion late in pregnancy. This particular call resulted in an appointment for an abortion at over 26 weeks, and the clinic personnel treated it in a routine way.

“Even people who identify as pro-choice reject abortion at these late stages of pregnancy. As a Knights of Columbus/Marist poll last year revealed, almost six in ten Americans support the protection of babies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This includes 56 percent of people who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice,’ and 49 percent of those who identify as Democrats.”

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico added, “In our nation’s capital, late term abortions are being performed on viable babies through 26 weeks of pregnancy. Washington Surgi-Clinic is performing these abortions on healthy women carrying healthy babies with no questions asked. Now is the time for Congress to act swiftly to end this scourge of late term abortion.”

This and the previous eleven undercover calls, which show abortion appointments being made even at 32 weeks of pregnancy, can be heard at www.PriestsForLife.org/LateTermAbortion.

Citizens are urged to take action in two ways, first by spreading the links to these phone calls on social media, and second by contacting their U.S. Senators and urging them to vote for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, S. 1922, which would protect children in the womb who can feel pain, hence preventing the abortions of those who are at 20 weeks of development or more.

Guidance on these action steps, and the opportunity to sign up for action alerts, is at www.StopAbortionNow.org.

Abortion Clinic Schedules Appointment for Healthy Mother to Abort Healthy Baby at 32 Weeks

Priests for Life undercover calls continue to reveal what most Americans reject

TITUSVILLE, FL — As part of its late-term abortion education project, Priests for Life today released another undercover phone call showing that healthy mothers of healthy children can obtain a legal abortion in the United States even at 32 weeks of pregnancy.

“Our goal here is very simple: To reveal to the American people that healthy mothers are aborting healthy babies even in the final months of pregnancy, and that this is legal activity,” said National Director Father Frank Pavone. “We are revealing this because many of our fellow citizens simply do not know or do not believe this is happening. We show them the evidence. Knowing that it is happening is the first step towards stopping it.”

The call released today was made last week to the clinic of abortionist Warren Hern in Boulder, Colorado. Hern is the author of the medical textbook Abortion Practice, which uses the words “decapitate” and “dismember” to describe the abortion procedure.

The caller, posing as a woman at around 30 weeks of pregnancy, made no reference to any fetal anomalies or maternal health problems. She simply stated, “My husband and I just split up and I just don’t want to continue the pregnancy.”

The four-day abortion procedure was scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28, at which point the clinic pointed out she would be at 32 weeks of pregnancy.

The undercover call was carried out with the assistance of Abortion Free New Mexico. Tara Shaver, who represents that organization, said, “This undercover investigation reveals that Abortionist Warren Hern in Boulder, Colorado is willing to perform an abortion at 32 weeks of pregnancy for $25,000 with virtually no questions asked. Late-term abortions have no place in a civilized society, yet in America they are performed on healthy women carrying healthy babies all across this nation. This should be a wakeup call for Americans who refuse to believe that this is happening.”

The call was the eighth in a series of calls that Priests for Life will continue to commission across the nation. Previous calls were made to the Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, NM, where our callers successfully made abortion appointments at 25, 30, and even 33 weeks.

“Even people who identify as pro-choice reject abortion at these late stages of pregnancy,” Father Pavone said. “As a Knights of Columbus/Marist poll last year revealed, almost six in ten Americans support the protection of babies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This includes 56 percent of people who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice,’ and 49 percent of those who identify as Democrats.

“In the light of these facts,” Father Pavone said, “we are urging all U.S. Senators to vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 1622), to protect these children starting at 20 weeks of their development.”

Fr. Pavone applauds SCOTUS decision to hear pregnancy center case

732-757-9087

TITUSVILLE, FL — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and President of the National Pro-life Religious Council, issued the following statement today regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision to hear a case involving pregnancy resource centers and the First Amendment.

“With free speech – particularly pro-life free speech – being trampled all over the county, it’s great news that the Supreme Court will decide on the constitutionality of a California law that forces pregnancy centers to refer clients for abortion,” Father Pavone said. “Protecting mothers and their children from abortion is the very reason these centers exist. Because this pro-woman/pro-life approach is so successful, and because pregnancy centers vastly outnumber abortion businesses, it’s no wonder that abortion advocates would seek to dilute and even silence their message. Every success in a pregnancy center is a loss of business for the abortion industry.”

“Priests for Life works closely with NIFLA and with other pregnancy center networks. The people volunteering in these centers are among the most caring, self-giving people in the world. They pour out their lives in order to save lives. Trying to force them to cooperate in taking lives is as absurd as it is immoral,” Father Pavone concluded. “I am confident that the Supreme Court will vindicate their rights.”

Fr. Frank Pavone is National Director of Priests for Life, the largest ministry in the Church focused exclusively on ending abortion, and is the President of the interdenominational National Pro-life Religious Council.

Priests for Life’s Alveda King Addresses Florida Catholic Dioceses at Statewide Respect Life Conference

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: October 24, 2017

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

TITUSVILLE, FL – Two of the major ministries of Priests for Life, and one of its medical advisors, were represented at the annual conference organized this past weekend by all the Catholic Dioceses of Florida, the home of the new, expanded Priests for Life headquarters.

Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, was a featured speaker at the 31st annual Florida statewide Respect Life conference. The theme of the event was “For the Least of Them” and it was hosted by the Archdiocese of Miami in Weston. Representatives of the Catholic dioceses in the state were among the 450 people in attendance.

Ms. King gave two talks during the conference. In the first, she described the devastating impact abortion has had on the African-American community because of abortion providers like Planned Parenthood targeting minorities.

In her second speech, attended primarily by priests, Ms. King talked about the vital role of priests and pastors in defending the unborn. She also distributed copies of “Proclaiming the Message of Life” by Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. The book gives pro-life sermon suggestions for all three cycles of Mass readings in the Catholic liturgy.

Ms. King linked the legalization of abortion to the 1963 Supreme Court decision that removed prayer from public schools and led to a creeping secular humanism that ultimately was able to dehumanize the child in the womb.

“By dehumanizing that child,” she said, “then it’s OK for the mother to do whatever she wants to do.”

Sharing personally from her own life experiences, she said her mother had considered aborting her, until her grandfather intervened, and how she herself had two abortions before her conversion to the pro-life cause.

“I bought the lie,” she admitted.

Ms. King urged priests to speak about abortion from the pulpit and not to worry that their words will be hurtful to women and men in their congregations who might be suffering the after-effects of abortion. To the contrary, she said, clergy who speak openly about abortion “are really setting people free.”

In a letter of greeting that Ms. King read at the conference, Father Pavone announced that the ministry’s move from New York City to Titusville had been completed and that the organization is still hiring staff and welcoming volunteers.

Addressing conference attendees, Father Pavone wrote:

“All of us at Priests for Life thank you for your commitment to the most important and urgent task our nation and our Church face right now, and that is to restore full and equal protection to the children in the womb. This is the priority meaning of the term “pro-life” and the most fundamental goal of the pro-life movement. This is, in fact, the civil rights movement of today, as Alveda first told me when we began working together almost twenty years ago.

Friends, we will succeed in this task, but only if we work together and let no divisions stand in our way. Let us hasten to victory!”

Priests for Life medical advisor Dr. Anthony Levatino also addressed the conference, sharing the deeply personal story of how the tragic death of his young daughter ultimately led him to stop performing abortions and to speak out for the unborn. In 2015, Dr. Levatino marched with the women and men of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, carrying a sign that read “I Regret Performing Abortions.”

Also at the Respect Life conference, Donna Gardner, director of Rachel’s Vineyard for the Diocese of Palm Beach, spoke about the way men are wounded by abortion and her efforts to bring the post-abortion healing program inside men’s prisons. Rachel’s Vineyard operates under the umbrella of Priests for Life.

Conference attendees from around the state of Florida were encouraged to contact Priests for Life for opportunities for pro-life volunteer activities and paid positions at the new, expanded Priests for Life headquarters in Titusville.

Court ordered abortions and political strife impede racial reconciliation.

Friday, October 20th, 2017

171019 blog image1News Alert: On 10/19/17, Judge orders government to facilitate abortion for seventeen-year old illegal immigrant known as “new Jane Roe.” Justice Department seeking injunction to save life of baby. The shelter where the mother is housed has contacted a local pregnancy center and the grandmother of the baby to seek assistance for the mother and unborn child. On other fronts, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson inadvertently stirred up more pain for a widow of a war hero with her misinterpretation of an appropriate condolence call from POTUS. Issues of racism and discrimination are lurking in the shadows, raising their nefarious heads.

Fact check: Abortion is a civil wrong that violates the civil and human rights of unborn children; where is the lawyer for the baby? In this case the office of the US Attorney General argues that the mother does not have a constitutional right to appeal to US government for an elective abortion on demand while as an illegal immigrant unless there is a medical emergency. As to the issue of condolences to the war widow, she needs our prayers without all of the shameful political jockeying.

Those in favor of the young mother having the abortion are proponents of an abortion agenda initiated by Margaret Sanger, a 20th century racist eugenicist who founded Planned Parenthood is considered by some to be America’s “Mother of Abortion.” Sanger championed eugenics and racism in her day, going so far as be an advisor to the Klu-Klux-Klan, and to birth a Eugenic Movement which as resulted in the genocide of millions of blacks and other “undesirable” at its core.

Those who are criticizing the President for his choice of words in his condolence call to the war widow are part of a group that is constantly attempting to unsuccessfully malign the Office of The President of the United States. It is time for a time out across the corridors of unrest and strife that are attempting to overtake our nation. We should start now with sincere racial reconciliation.

In the search for racial reconciliation in the twenty-first Century, the keys of truth and repentance for abortion and all of our sins, as well as the application of Agape Love towards one another will be the keys to unlock the gates of deception and open the doors to righteousness, justice and liberty.

Let’s first unlock the lie of separate races. The words “racist” and “racism” are thrown around a lot today. From a Christian standpoint, racism is a sin based upon the lie that we are separate races. The Bible teaches us that as humans we are One Blood, one human race.

Racism, the concept that we are separate races divided by skin color breeds idolatry and is at the center of much of the discord and violence that human beings have experienced since the Fall of humanity.

If you look at the sons of Abraham, you have Isaac and Ishmael. Here we have two brothers and two peoples – the Hebrews and the Arabs. They’ve been fighting for years, and that’s a family feud. This conflict between two brothers can be looked at as a racial war. How can they be separate races when they are blood brothers?

When we move forward in human history, we have the nations of Africa, Asia, and we have the Caucasian nations, and yet people are thinking that they are different races. Then there are the sons of Noah and his wife; Ham, Shem and Japheth who are “fathers” of the African, Asian and Caucasian Nations; Nations, not races.

Consequently Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said we all have to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish together as fools.

My father, A.D. King, said it best when his brother, Martin Luther King, was killed, and I wanted to be mad at white people. Somebody killed my uncle. I needed to be mad with somebody. I said, “I hate white people, Daddy, I hate white people!”

“Alveda,” my Daddy said, “you can’t hate white people. White people march with us. White people go to jail with us. White people die with us. White people didn’t kill your uncle, the devil did.”

“The devil, Daddy?” I asked. Daddy was teaching me that human beings are one race.

171019 blog image2Yet today the erroneous concept of color blindness is still touted as a faulty solution. “I don’t see color” is a misguided effort to say “I don’t accept skin color as a legitimate or valid determination of a person’s race. Think about it, color blindness is a medical and spiritual condition requiring restoration of sight. The concept of being of separate races because of skin color is a lie. We are one blood/one human race! [Acts 17:26]

Acts 17:26 – Of one blood, God made all people to live together on the earth.”

The sin of accepting the lie of separate races delineated by skin color is at the heart of many of our human conflicts today; including war on the womb and global wars that threaten the existence of humanity and the issues discussed earlier in this report.

171019 blog image3Once we accept the truth that we are one human race, we must repent from our sins of racism; inhumanity to humanity, war, abortion and idolatry. Then we must forgive our brothers and sisters and learn to live together and learn to love each other.

In the 20th century we turned to Nonviolence as a key to this process. These principles of nonviolent conflict resolution and reconciliation are still helpful today: I learned these principles from my Uncle MLK, my father AD King, and grandfather Daddy King. They are available HERE.

With God nothing is impossible. We shall overcome the sins of racism.
