Friends,

Priests for Life Launches Campaign Alerting VOTERS on
which Democrats SUPPORT the Murder of Newborn Babies

The baby-killing Democrats are trying desperately to keep Americans from learning about their support for the murder of newborn babies.

They’re hoping voters never find out what they’re doing.  And they’re relying on their anti-life accomplices in the fake news media to hide their evil deeds in darkness. 

To keep that from happening, Priests for Life has launched a nationwide offensive.  This is the initiative I told you about last week.  The purpose of this campaign is threefold:

1. SHINE THE SPOTLIGHT on the baby-killing Democrats who support killing babies who survive an abortion.

2. Make sure voters know exactly who these baby-killers are.

3. Bring public pressure on self-proclaimed “moderate Democrats to rise up and pass the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. 

Whether or not we succeed in this vital project depends a lot on YOU.

In a moment I’ll give you full details of this vital Priests for Life initiative.That’s because it’s you and your fellow Priests for Life family members who will have to make the sacrifice needed to fund this campaign.  Without your immediate financial help we won’t be able to keep the spotlight on the baby-killing Democrats, the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” will die in Congress and the anti-life Democrats will get away with murder ... and I mean that literally.

But before I do that I need you to prayerfully consider helping fund this emergency project.  Given all that’s at stake for the youngest members of our human family and for the nation itself, I’m hoping you will do more than you think you can and make the largest donation you’ve ever made to Priests for Life or any other pro-life organization.

When all is said and done I anticipate Priests for Life having to spend upwards of $750,000 on this one project alone.  And this is only ONE of several battles we’re actively engaged in as we fight to end our nation’s abortion holocaust.

And while all of our work is important, this fight to win legal protection for newborn babies may well be the most important.  I say that because of something I told you in a prior email; namely:

If we as a people and as a nation refuse to protect the lives of our newborn brothers and sisters, then America doesn’t deserve to survive.

I truly believe that. 

How can a just and loving God continue to bless and protect a nation that callously kills the most vulnerable among us?  The crime of abortion is one that cries out to heaven for vengeance.  And do not for a moment think that God does not hear the cries of His babies ... both unborn and newborn.  He does. 

And while there is so much in America that is good and worth fighting to preserve, nothing can justify the evil of abortion.

That’s why it is vital to the survival of America that we end abortion.  As I’ve told you many, many times, abortion corrupts our entire society and retards progress on all the other issues that concern you:  Health care.  Immigration.  The economy.  Fighting terrorism.  Everything. 

And yet, not satisfied with simply killing unborn boys and girls up to the very moment of birth, pro-abortion Democrats have decided it’s perfectly okay to kill newborn babies who survive an abortion.  That’s infanticide.  It’s pagan child sacrifice. 

So I am calling you and the entire Priests for Life family to action.  We have got to stop this insanity.  Or America is doomed. 

Fortunately the Republican members of Congress have come up with a way to protect our newborn brothers and sisters.  As I noted a moment ago it’s called the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and its sole purpose is to make sure newborn babies who survive an abortion are given all the medical care and help they need to live.

You would think Congress would approve such a bill unanimously.  After all, the Born Alive Act does not limit abortion.  It simply protects newborn babies.

Tragically that doesn’t matter to Democrat members. 

In the Senate, the Democrats filibustered the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and used that parliamentary maneuver to keep it from coming to the floor for a vote.

In the House, pro-abortion extremist Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats turned a blind eye to the Born-Alive Act that Rep. Ann Wagner (R., Mo.) introduced back in February.  The bill was never acknowledged.  It was never debated.  It was not even sent to a committee.

But the House has a rule that allows a member to file what’s called a “discharge petition” for any bill that has not been acted on for thirty consecutive days.  And that’s exactly what Rep. Steve Scalise (R., La.) did on April 2.  All of his Republican colleagues lined up to sign the petition.  Only three of the 235 Democrats in the House have signed it so far.  Shame on the rest.

To bring the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act to the floor of the House for a full vote, 218 members have to sign Rep. Scalise’s “discharge petition.”  As of my writing to you today, 199 House members have signed the petition. 

If you’re not sure whether or not your House representative has signed the Born Alive Act “discharge petition” you can click here to find out.  You can also use this link to stay up to date on how many House members have signed the discharge petition and who they are.

What I can tell you today is that the petition is 19 signatures short of succeeding.  More importantly:

No House member has signed the petition since April 8 ... over a month ago.

And I fear no more will until voters in their districts pressure them to do so.

Which is why I’ve sent you this email today.

You no doubt remember how shocked and outraged the country was when Democrats came out publicly in support of infanticide.  The most famous was Virginia Governor Ralph Northam who in a calm and matter-of-fact voice talked about making a baby who survived an abortion “comfortable” until the abortionist and mother decided to kill the child.

Americans were rightly horrified.  And in a Rasmussen poll taken after these revelations, roughly 70% of Americans said doctors should be required to provide the medical care and help a child who survives an abortion needs.  This included 61% of people who identify as Democrats.

So the vast majority of our fellow Americans are on our side on this issue.

What the Priests for Life family has to do now is turn up the heat on those 40 or so Democrats who were elected last year but represent districts President Trump won in the 2016 election.  These freshmen lawmakers know what the voters in their districts want them to do but they’re afraid of Nancy Pelosi and the radical abortion wing of the Party of Death.

Well, Priests for Life has a two-pronged strategy to convince them to defy Pelosi and do what’s right for newborn babies and the nation itself.  And that is: To SIGN the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act discharge petition. 

Here’s Priests for Life’s plan to convince them to do that:

One:  Write to every priest and bishop in the country to equip them to urge their parishioners to contact their local House rep and urge him or her to sign the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act discharge petition. 

We’ll also urge them to devote homilies, as well as articles in the bulletin and on the parish website to this matter.  Protecting the lives of newborn babies isn’t just a “political” fight; it’s a moral fight for the soul of the nation. 

I’m confident thousands of priests will join us in this effort.

Two:  Launch a nationwide campaign to recruit people to contact their lawmakers and urge them to sign the Born Alive Act discharge petition.  This will generate the pressure needed to convince those Democrats I mentioned above to do what they know in their heart is the right thing to do.  Priests for Life will carry this out in three waves:

  1. First wave is YOU, the Priests for Life family and known pro-life activists like you.
  2. Second wave will be ONE MILLION faithful Catholics and other pro-lifers.
  3. Third wave will be another FIVE MILLION Catholics and conservatives.

As I told you earlier, the purpose of the campaign is to make sure Democrat House members know that we’re watching them and won’t let them hide from their support for the killing of newborn babies. 

Instead, we’re going to keep the spotlight on them and make sure voters in their district know they refused to protect these defenseless babies when they had the chance to do so. 

Keep in mind, we don’t have to get all forty of the Democrats I referenced above to sign the Born-Alive Act discharge petition.  We only need to convince half of them to do so

If we do that then the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act goes to the House floor for an up or down vote…which is exactly what the pro-abortion extremists in the House DO NOT want to happen.  They want to keep voters in the dark about this issue

The last thing they want heading into the 2020 elections is to vote NO on a bill 70% of Americans – including 61% of Democrats – support.

That’s why I’m so optimistic about our chances.  We have unusually strong popular support for this particular project.  When it comes to protecting newborn babies from the Democrats and abortionists ...

... America is with us!

With that hurdle out of the way the only other one we have to clear is the MONEY hurdle.

Which is why I asked you to make that tax-deductible gift to Priests for Life!

As I noted earlier in my email, the estimated cost for this project is roughly $750,000. 

That money is needed to:

  • Contact people directly in their homes by way of the mail. 
  • Produce powerful videos and talks that we’ll send to millions of people over the various social media platforms Priests for Life uses: Facebook.  Instagram.  YouTube.  Twitter.
  • Send out important information and materials to priests.
  • Prepare special programs for our Priests for Life EndAbortion.TV internet outlet. 

No pro-life organization in the country has the visibility and reach that Priests for Life has when it comes to rallying clergy and laity alike to join the fight to end abortion. 

I’m telling you this to assure you that when you entrust your hard-earned and precious pro-life dollars to Priests for Life, you’re giving those dollars the biggest bang for their bucks. 

And with that I’ll close this urgent appeal for help.  But before I do, I want to once again assure you of my prayers for you, especially at every Mass I offer.  I pray for you because I know how hard the devil comes after you due to your pro-life commitment. 

May God bless and protect you.  And may He bless our shared mission on behalf of His babies – both unborn and newly born – with success.

Sincerely,

Fr. Frank Pavone

National Director, Priests for Life

P.S. If you haven’t yet done so, contact your House member.  Make sure your representative knows exactly how strongly you feel about newborn babies and that you expect your House rep to protect them by signing the Born Alive Act discharge petition. 

While you’re doing that Priests for Life will be energizing the clergy to get involved in this fight and recruiting other Americans to contact their House members.  We must win this fight.  And with your continued partnership – especially your prayers and that gift I’m counting on you to make right now – we will!
