Priests for Life launches vital project to expose the radical pro-abortion extremism of 2020 Democrat candidates!

January 2020


In their mad pursuit to pass “abortion till birth” laws, the heralds of the culture of death have touted the results of a poll conducted by Pew Research.  According to the folks at Pew 70 percent of Americans want Roe v. Wade to remain in place, while only 28 percent want it overturned.

You read that correctly.  70 percent!  
Using that false data the Democrats want people to believe that seven out of ten Americans are okay with Roe and want it to remain the law of the land.
But there’s a reason why Pew came up with that finding.  
You see, unlike you and me ... 
... most of our fellow Americans do not know that Roe v Wade allows abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy ... and for whatever reason.  
That, my friend, is abortion-on-demand.

But Pew’s researchers never told survey participants that Roe v Wade legalized abortion-on-demand.  Most Americans mistakenly think that Roe only legalized abortions in the first twelve weeks of a woman’s pregnancy. 

Even then abortion is a horrific crime and a violation of every person’s fundamental right to life.  But the abortion industry, along with its anti-life conspirators in the mainstream news media, has done an excellent job of fooling people about Roe v Wade.

However, when Roe v Wade is fully explained and people are told it legalized “abortion till birth” the vast majority of our fellow Americans reject its anti-life extremism. 

Which is why Priests for Life is launching our “Is This What You Mean?” project.

It’s also why I’m counting on you to make as large a donation as you can and partner with Priests for Life to expose the anti-life extremism of Democrat candidates in this year’s critical.

This project is extremely important for the simple reason that if pro-abortion extremists in the Democrat Party take control of the government this November they will enact laws that will criminalize much of our pro-life work and severely restrict our fight to end abortion. 

On the other hand if Priests for Life is able to expose the radical pro-abortion extremism of the Democrats – an extremism which the American people reject in overwhelming numbers – then I’m confident we can prevail this November and keep our fight against abortion moving forward.

I base my confidence on a study which found that while 65% of participants said they were familiar with Roe v Wade, only 29% were able to select the most accurate description of the ruling from a list of four options.  The polling company’s conclusion is clear:

“Many Americans do not understand the full implication of the Roe vs. Wade decision – a fact many pro-choice groups choose to interpret as support for their cause. ... Simple information may be the first step in gaining the public’s support to change America’s abortion policy.”

I highlighted that last sentence because it dovetails perfectly into our “Is This What You Mean” project.  The project has a two-fold purpose:

  1. To reveal the abortion procedure and the dictates of Roe v Wade to the public.
  2. To challenge candidates and others who support abortion to admit what it is.

In a nutshell the project makes use of the words of abortionists themselves.  After quoting these words we simply ask pro-abortion candidates:

“When you say the word ‘abortion’ is this what you mean?”

The beauty of the project is that it doesn’t really matter how the pro-abortion candidate answers.  Just by asking the question we’ve accomplish our goal, namely:

We’ve exposed what that candidate stands for, both to the candidate himself or herself; but even more importantly to the voters! 

But there’s more. 

The project is effective because of its simplicity.  No pro-life activist who uses our “Is This What You Mean?” materials has to be a master debater or doctor or moral theologian.  All they have to be is a dedicated pro-life member of the human family. 

That’s because our “Is This What You Mean?” materials are a compilation of quotes and statements from abortionists.  Their words are taken from both medical textbooks and court testimony which baby killers like convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell have made public.  So the evidence cannot be contradicted.  And no one can accuse us of taking words out of context.  It’s all there.  In black and white.  Quotes from the abortionists themselves and/or those who teach others how to perform abortions.

And because it is, no one will have to debate a candidate or get involved in a nuanced back-and-forth argument about the legality or morality of abortion. 

Rather it keeps the focus on the abortion procedure itself and simply asks:

“When you say ‘abortion’ is this what you mean?”

This is exactly what pro-life leaders and activists have asked Priests for Life to put together:  A simple way to bypass the rhetoric and arguments and “sound bites” of the abortion apologists and get to the heart of the matter, which is protecting human life by exposing the brutality and inhumanity of abortion.   

And that’s really important, especially because there are so many abortion sympathizers – including some in the clergy – who want to put abortion and the willful killing of babies on a par with other issues, like “climate change” or health care.  That’s a morally bankrupt and confused position, which misleads people about the fundamental human right to life, the one right upon which all other human rights are based.

Finally, and of particular importance during this election or any election, is the fact that the project is absolutely non-partisan.  It doesn’t point to the party of the candidate, but simply to what they think abortion is.

And whatever any candidate or party says about abortion, our goal is always the same: to end it. Period.  And one of the best ways to advance our cause is to make sure people elect public officials who know the difference between serving the public and killing the public.

So there you have it.  Priests for Life’s vital “Is This What You Mean” project.

What I’m asking you to do is support this important project with a tax-deductible gift today and throughout the 2020 election season.  Priests for Life needs your dollars so we can:

  • Train pro-life activists around the country on how to get candidates to reveal to the voters exactly what is that they support when they call for “reproductive rights” or a “woman’s right to choose.”
  • Encourage pro-life activists to attend town halls and candidate forums.
  • Equip them with materials to use when preparing to confront candidates.  You can click here to read the “Open Letter to Pro-abortion Candidates” that Priests for Life has for pro-life activists to use.  This is just one example of the kinds of materials Priests for Life will be producing for this project.
  • Produce videos that explain abortion procedures and help pro-lifers form their questions for candidates.
  • Create powerful and dynamic web pages to which pro-lifers can go to for information, facts and ways to disarm pro-abortion candidates.

It’s critically important you get behind this project and help make it the success it absolutely must be because abortion apologists and Hollywood starlets and anti-life politicians and a host of others have programmed people into thinking “right to choose” whenever they hear the word “abortion.” 

As that Pew study shows, Americans have been brainwashed and have no idea that what “abortion” actually means is the ending of a human life, and very often by brutally ripping the arms and legs off a defenseless child in the womb.

Our task is to make sure that as many Americans as possible come to KNOW the radical pro-abortion extremism of many candidates and REJECT those who promote an “abortion till birth” agenda.

That last point is what makes this project and all of our “Political Responsibility” work here at Priests for Life so terribly urgent and important. 

The looming November elections will have a major impact on our fight to end America’s abortion holocaust, especially because the side that wins this November will be the side that gets to appoint our nation’s judges. 

To date President Trump and the pro-life Senate have done a spectacular job of transforming our federal courts – including the Supreme Court – into places where a child’s right to life is respected and protected. 

So if President Trump is defeated we’ll lose a key ally in our fight against abortion.

Same with the pro-life majority in the U.S. Senate.  It’s critically important for the entire pro-life movement that we do everything we can to keep that pro-life majority intact this November.

And that’s why I’m counting on you to give your financial support to Priests for Life’s “Is This What You Mean?” project.

Now that we’ve entered 2020 people are beginning to pay more attention to what candidates and which party platform they might support on Election Day.  So there’s no time to lose.

But it will be extremely expensive to carry out this project. 

The cost to produce a single high quality video, for example, can be as much as $10,000.  And we plan to produce as many as thirteen videos for 2020. 

In addition to that we have to spend money to print up and ship out all of our “Is This What You Mean?” materials to pro-life activists, especially those who live in states where control of the White House and Senate will be decided:  Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin and a few others.

Election Day is only a few short months away. 

So please take a moment right now to make a tax-deductible donation to Priests for Life and partner with us as we expose the radical anti-life policies of pro-abortion candidates and convince Americans to VOTE PRO-LIFE in 2020.

Please be as generous as you possibly can today.  Hold nothing back. 

2020 marks the moment of truth for America. 

And you have a leading role to play in helping Priests for Life expose the pro-abortion extremism of candidates so that your fellow Americans will reject them on Election Day.

Thank you again for your faithful support – both your prayers and your financial gifts.  In grateful thanks to God for you, I remember you at each Holy Sacrifice of the Mass I offer; as do all the priests of Priests for Life.  God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Frank Pavone

National Director, Priests for Life 

P.S. Don’t be fooled by the results of that Pew Research poll.  A recent survey conducted by YouGov revealed that 80% of Americans – including 68% of those who identify as “pro-choice” – reject abortion the day before a child is born; and 79% oppose abortions in the third trimester. 

So America is with us on this. 

With pro-abortion extremists pushing their “abortion till birth” agenda it’s vital for the survival of the country that you and Priests for Life mobilize the American people to REJECT every pro-abortion candidate running for office this year.  And one of the best ways for you to do that is by supporting Priests for Life’s “Is This What You Mean?” project!
