Fr. Pavone: "President Obama has declared war!"

Dear Deacon John,

The decision to have Kathleen Sebelius - a militant pro-abortion extremist - be Secretary of Health and Human Services can mean only one thing:

Barack Obama has declared WAR
on the youngest members of our human family!

Look at what Barack Obama has done in just his first few weeks in office:

  • Rescinded the "Mexico City policy" and authorized your tax dollars to fund international groups that are promoting abortion around the world.
  • Begun the process of eliminating the "conscience clause" that protects doctors and nurses from being forced to take part in the crime of abortion.
  • Expanded human experimentation by increasing federal funding of destructive embryonic stem cell research.
  • Renewed funding for UNFPA – the United Nations group that helped China carry out its "one child" policy of forced sterilization and forced abortions.
  • Promised to sign the "Freedom of Choice" Act - which, if it ever were to reach his desk, would undo every pro-life law in all fifty states.

But that's far from all he's done. He's appointing rabid pro-abortion extremists to key positions in the government. The list is long and includes some of the most hard-line pro-abortion fanatics in the country:

àHillary Clinton is Secretary of State.

àKathleen Sebelius, the radical pro-abortion extremist governor of Kansas, has been tapped to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. Archbishop Raymond L. Burke, Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, had this to say about the appointment: "No matter how good Governor Sebelius' record regarding other human life concerns may be, if she is not committed to the safeguarding of human life from its very inception, she should not be entrusted with the questions of health and human services for our nation." Amen to that!

àRahm Emanuel, is Obama's Chief of Staff. He had a 100% pro-abortion rating from NARAL while a member of Congress.

àEllen Moran, the former Executive Director of the pro-abortion group Emily's List is now White House Communications Director.

àMelody Barnes, a board member of Emily's List, is Domestic Policy advisor.

àDawn Johnson, a former abortion rights attorney for NARAL, is the Assistant Attorney General for the office of Legal Counsel.

àJames B. Steinberg, Obama's Deputy Secretary of State, is on record saying that it is unconstitutional to keep your tax dollars from funding abortions.

àNancy-Ann DeParle - an abortion advocate who worked on the Clinton health care plan - will head up the White House Office of Health Care Reform.

àDavid Ogden, our new Deputy Attorney General, represented the interests of pornographers over the protection of children.

Our Lord told us that "by their fruits you will know them."

We're seeing the anti-life fruit of Barack Obama ... and it is rotten to the core!

But what else would you expect from the man who - not once but three times - voted to block legislation that would save the life of a child born alive in a botched abortion!

Without question...

... our unborn brothers and sisters NEED YOU! And they need you NOW!

They need your voice ... your arms ... your legs ... your time ... and your treasure.

So please click here and follow the instructions to rush Priests for Life the largest gift you can send today.

I know this is going to require you to make sacrifices and take risks. But that is precisely what these times call for. Remember the Golden Rule which Our Lord commands us to live by:

"DO unto others what you would have them do unto you."

Well, let me ask you something.

Imagine you are a child in the womb. Your mother has an appointment for tomorrow morning. At that appointment an abortionist is going to come at you with a pair of vice-grip forceps to tear you limb from limb and crush your skull.

What would you have me do for you?

The answer is obvious. You'd want me to intervene. To stand up and shout out:

"STOP!!! Don't kill this innocent child!!!"

Well now that Barack Obama has declared all-out war on the youngest members of our human family, that's exactly what we have to do.

And we have to do so today ... and tomorrow ... and the next day ... and the day after that ... and every day after that for as long as it takes to stop the killing!!!

That's going to require a great deal of strength from you. Believe me I know. I have devoted my every waking moment for the past twenty plus years to this fight.

So let me tell you how I stay strong and committed to this fight.

When I think of the terrible injustice and the brutal manner in which our nation treats the most helpless and most defenseless among us ...

... I GET MAD!!! I get ANGRY!!!

I'm not talking about the sin of anger. I'm talking about righteous anger ... the kind Our Lord had when He cleared the temple of the moneychangers and the profiteers.

And I channel my anger into constructive action!

That's what I'm urging you to do. Today. Right now. That's what your unborn brothers and sisters need you to do.

Then use your anger as motivation to renew your commitment to our work of defending the lives of all innocent human beings.

We must not abandon our unborn brothers and sisters in this their hour of greatest need!

But let me warn you. That commitment will require you to make sacrifices and give of yourself for the sake of the youngest members of our human family. You may have to ...

... give up a Saturday morning to pray outside a local abortion clinic;

... or spend time helping your church's pro-life group organize an activity;

... or meet with your priest or pastor and challenge him to preach against the evil of abortion;

... or confront a family member who is pro-abortion.

As you can see, I wasn't kidding when I told you that your commitment today will force you to take risks. But DO NOT BE AFRAID!!! God will be with you!!!

So please, before you "delete" this, take a moment to ...

Your financial help is especially critical right now because the crumbling economy is hitting Priests for Life just as hard as it is everyone else in the country. Many of the individuals who have been extremely generous to us in the past are no longer able to help. Others have had to cut back their support drastically.

This has weakened our ability to rally the people of life and lead them into battle. And this at the very moment when our unborn brothers and sisters need us the most.

As you know, Priests for Life has the largest pro-life communications network in the country. It includes television ... radio ... Internet ... one-on-one visits to parishes and churches ... speaking engagements ... appearances on TV (especially Mother Angelica's EWTN network) ... radio talk shows ... email ... newsletters ... publications. You name it.

Now that Barack Obama has declared war on the most defenseless members of our human family, we need to use all of our resources to sound the alarm, mobilize the people of life, energize our clergy members, and lead the pro-life forces to victory over abortion!


Your unborn brothers and sisters NEED YOU!!! NOW!!!

I know you won't let them down! Neither will I. And neither will Priests for Life.

And if I may ask you one more favor. Each year I survey our supporters to learn how we can server their needs more effectively. After giving your donation, would you take a moment and fill out the short survey I've placed at www.priestsforlife.org/survey. It is very important to me to know what you're thinking about our ministry!

Thank you for your renewed commitment today. And thank you for the sacrifices you make to fund Priests for Life's life-saving work. Know that in appreciation for all you do to defend the youngest members of our human family, the priests of Priests for Life remember every day at Mass. May God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

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

PS One more thing you can do for your unborn brothers and sisters is this: PRAY for President
. God seeks the hearts of everyone, that they may turn to him and live! Pray for the conversion of our President. Ask the Holy Spirit to enkindle the fire of His love in the heart of Barack Obama. God bless.
