\Here we give you a snapshot of some of what the Priests for Life family of ministries is doing in these days. We thank you for your support and invite you to get to know us better!

Fr. Frank is now fully recovered from surgery and back doing daily live broadcasting at EndAbortion.TV. He has also resumed travelling and he and Janet Morana, our executive director, will be travelling to the Catholic Marketing Network conference the week of July 26.

Fr. Frank continues to be briefed by pro-life legal experts, and is reviewing the documentation, of the Dobbs case out of Mississippi that the Supreme Court has accepted, to resolve the question of the constitutionality of laws that protect unborn babies from abortion prior to viability. Fr. Frank will be preparing a series of educational presentations about this case. See www.SupremeCourtVictory.com. On that page you will a lot of important information including the full brief for the petitioners and the summary of arguments. You will also find there the prayer campaign we are coordinating for victory in this case.

Father Frank Pavone will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Aug. 26 banquet of Right to Life of Southwest Indiana.  Father Denis Wilde, OSA, associate director of Priests for Life, will receive the 2021 Pro-Life Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation during the Celebrate Life Banquet Sept. 22 in Harrisburg, PA.

International Outreach

Our International Outreach team advocated for the unborn by taking part in two United Nations sponsored virtual conferences, namely the  Generation Equality Forum (GEF) held in Paris from June 30 to July 2 and the High-Level Political Forum on sustainable development (HLPF) which took place in New York July 13 – 15. Regrettably both conferences made recommendations to fully endorse abortion as a human right.  The GEF resulted in pledges by governments and public sector institutions of “USD 21 Billion in gender equality investments, the private sector USD 13 Billion, and Philanthropy USD 4.5 Billion. UN entities, international and regional organizations committed an aggregate of USD 1.3 Billion.”  Much of the money was earmarked for sexual and reproductive health programs, including abortion. In the HLPF draft ministerial statement #16, they committed themselves to “ensuring by 2030 universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services, including for family planning, information and education, and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programmes”

Orders Department
The orders department is busy filling orders for our numerous pro-life products including the following new products which you can order at www.ProLifeProducts.org

In the Light of His Word: Biblically Based Prayers to End Abortion is the third in a special series of prayer booklets Father Frank has written specifically for the pro-life movement. This newest booklet takes key themes in God’s Word as the launching point for interceding for our brothers and sisters in the womb.

My Heart Beats Just Like Yours. Brochure, t-shirt, pins and stickers featuring new images of the unborn child! Brochure contains four beautiful images of the baby at 7-10 weeks after fertilization. 

Will We Protect Babies Born During Abortions? This is a brochure about the issue of babies born alive during abortions and the legislation that has been proposed to protect them.

Help Your Priests and Deacons End Abortion brochure (Catholic Version) and Help Your Pastor End Abortion Brochure (non-denominational Version). Pro-life people want to see their clergy involved in the fight to end abortion. These two brochures provide practical steps we can all take to encourage them. Abortion is not only a religious issue; it is a human rights issue. Science has a lot to say about it, and so does the Word of God. Faith plays a key role in helping people understand the issue, and motivating them to engage it. People need to hear from their spiritual leaders about abortion.

The Good Shepherd Project brochure is geared towards clergy and will offer resources on counseling and healing after abortion, and on how and why to preach about abortion, as well as online conferences that invite priests and deacons to discuss with us the best ways to reach the lost sheep in their parish. 

We have also revised our brochure, The Bible’s Teaching Against Abortion with fresh look. This classic brochure points out where in scripture we find our opposition to abortion and is a great tool for pro-life apologetics.

Gift Entry Department 

Gift entry is busy processing regular donations and a large prospecting mailing that we sent out to many people who do not yet know of the work of Priests for Life. The response is encouraging!
