“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.

I need your help today, and so do the unborn. Thank you in advance.

Frequently Asked Questions about Priests for Life Fundraising

God bless you for your kindness!  

September 1, 2015

“America will not end abortion 
until America SEES abortion!” 

I’ve written you this urgent letter for two important reasons.

First, thanks to the gruesome and shocking undercover videos that we are helping our colleagues at the Center for Medical Progress to publicize …

We have a golden opportunity to SHOW America the atrocities taking place inside America’s abortuaries and bring an end to legalized abortion-on-demand once and for all!

You have a vital role to play if Priests for Life is to make that happen. 

And that leads me to the second reason I've written you this desperate appeal for help:

Priests for Life cannot take full advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to DE-FUND Planned Parenthood without your immediate financial help.

I’m hoping you will make whatever sacrifice you must to make a much-needed donation to Priests for Life.

I beg you to do this right now … before you even finish reading my message. 


I know this will require a sacrifice on your part. 

Still I’m hoping you will do this because we simply have to take advantage of the anti-abortion sentiment that’s sweeping the nation.

And right now we don’t have near the amount of funds needed to do that.  The reason why is simple. 

Donations to Priests for Life in July were down $185,841 compared with July 2014.

That was a totally unexpected shortfall and is really hampering our efforts to fully capitalize on this moment and achieve some key objectives.  We’ve simply got to make up that loss so that we can be as effective as we need to be if we’re going to keep the heat on the abortion industry and awaken our fellow Americans to truth that in every abortion a child is killed and his mother scarred for life … if not killed herself.

That said please give me just a moment to tell you precisely what Priests for Life will do with your dollars.  There are four projects that require immediate funding:

The fight to De-Fund Planned Parenthood

This is going to be a titanic struggle; and one we won’t easily win … even though by all rights – and by all the evidence – we should win it hands down. 

To see what I mean just consider the first try pro-life lawmakers in the Senate made to cut funding for Planned Parenthood.  On the plus side, a majority of the Senate voted IN FAVOR of the resolution.  It was only a procedural matter that kept it from passing since sixty votes were required to end debate on the measure.

But as I told you in my last letter, there is hope!

The fact that a majority of Senators voted to cut all federal funding of Planned Parenthood is itself amazing … and more progress than we’ve ever made toward that goal. 

In addition to that, two senators who have traditionally supported taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood changed their votes!  They are Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Joe Donnelly (D-IN). 

So while we may have lost that first go-round, the fight is far from over and we’ve made some significant progress.  And a portion of the dollars I’m asking you to send Priests for Life today will be used to bring pressure on Congress to get the government out of the abortion business.

Again, though, that’s only ONE important project.  The other three are:

  • Our lawsuit against the ObamaCare HHS mandate.  We have made our appeal to the Supreme Court.  Please keep our lawsuit and our attorneys in your prayers.  Some of the dollars you send today may go to replenish our depleted “Legal Fund”
  • Press Congress and the States to pass two key pieces of legislation that will protect the unborn, as well as their mothers.  These are:

-The “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”  The House passed this earlier in the year.  We’re now rallying pro-life Americans to convince their Senators to pass this bill and protect children.

-The “Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act.”  As the bill’s title states, this would protect defenseless babies from being literally torn limb from limb in an abortion.  This bill builds on the “Pain Capable” bill the House has already passed and provides further protections for our unborn brothers and sisters.

  • The 2016 Presidential election.  Like it or not, the 2016 election is in full swing and we only have fifteen short months to REGISTER millions of pro-life voters, convince them to VOTE their pro-life values on Election Day, and EDUCATE our fellow Americans about all that’s at stake in next year’s election.  We can’t sit back and wait till the last few weeks to act.  There’s a lot to do and very little time in which to do it.  On Election Day 2016 America absolutely must elect public servants who know the difference between serving the public and killing the public.  But more on that in future communications.

Those are our top four priorities and as I said each one requires immediate funding. 

But we cannot possibly achieve them without your help today, yours and the entire Priests for Life family. 

It’s going to cost well over half a million dollars to fund all of our work from now until Thanksgiving.  And when you consider the fact that we suffered that unexpected $185,841 shortfall in July, we’re already behind the 8-ball.

That’s why your gift is so urgently needed and why I’m hoping you will help right now.

I would not dare ask this of you if this were not an opportunity unlike any we’ve had since the Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand over forty years ago. 

We absolutely must capitalize on it if we are to have any chance of ending abortion. 

The spotlight is on the abortion industry like never before.  We have them on the ropes.  Help us deliver the knockout blow that will go a long toward helping us achieve our goal of ending abortion and stopping the killing.  Please.

Thank you for doing this. 

And know that in heartfelt gratitude for the sacrifice I know you are making on behalf of God’s unborn children to, 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 in the next few minutes … and I pray that God bless you.


Sincerely yours in Christ,

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

P.S. I cannot overstress the importance of your help right now.  As I told you in my letter, the opportunity we have at this precise moment is unprecedented in our pro-life movement’s history.  It is one that is unlikely to come again for many years; if ever.  And because it is, it is critically important that the Priests for Life family join hands and work together to capitalize on it and strike a telling blow against the abortion industry.  Your role in this great cause is to make the sacrifices that I know you must to help fund our work.  We’ll do the work, of that you need have no doubt.  But we can only do what you and your fellow Priests for Life ministry partners empower us to do; and that most definitely includes the gift I’m counting on you to send today.  We need your help more than ever right now.  So please be as generous as you can.  Thank you again and may God bless you.
