“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.

Supreme Court Hobby Lobby Decision

Dear Friends,

238 years ago today – in early July of 1776 – the Continental Congress voted to break from Great Britain and free the American colonies from the tyrannical rule of King George III.

Today I am counting on you to continue to work with Priests for Life as we pursue a lawsuit that will protect all Americans from the tyrannical rule of President Barack Obama.

Working in our favor is the Supreme Court’s June 30 decision in FAVOR of Hobby Lobby and religious freedom. That 5 – 4 decision – which should have been unanimous – paves the way for Priests for Life to win another victory for you and religious freedom.

But the Court’s Hobby Lobby decision does not guarantee Priests for Life a win by any stretch of the imagination.

For one thing, we’re up against a stacked deck in the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.

For another, we must have the money needed to prosecute our case.

Neither is a certainty at this critical point.

Which is why I’ve written you this urgent appeal for help.

Please click here  and make as large a contribution as you possibly can to Priests for Life so that we can use the Supreme Court’s ruling in Hobby Lobby to safeguard FREEDOM OF RELIGION, not just for Priests for Life, but for you and all Americans.

Do not make the mistake of thinking you can move on to another web page because the Court’s Hobby Lobby decision is the end of the matter. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The anti-life extremists in the Obama Administration – as well as those in Congress – are not about to roll over and give up. These people are fanatics when it comes to their “War on the Unborn.”

Now that they’ve lost a battle with a for-profit entity, they are going to go all out to make sure Priests for Life and all non-profits – whether a religious organization or not – must comply with their dictatorial abortion mandates.

The only way to stop these fanatics is with a court order!

Which is why it I am coming to you today and asking you to click here and help re-fill Priests for Life’s all but empty Legal Fund.

Please do this RIGHT NOW ... before you move on to another web page.

In doing so you will be helping protect your right to religious freedom.

Which is why David Green, the CEO of Hobby Lobby, has publicly stated,

"Our family joins in prayerful support of the Priests for Life case
against the HHS mandate. As our Hobby Lobby case represents
the concerns of businesses, so the Priests for Life case
represents the concerns of the religious non-profit groups.
Together, we stand against this injustice, and for the law of God."


And that’s what I’m calling on you to do today.

STAND WITH US!

It’s important that you do because, as I told you, our lawsuit is far from over.

In all probability, either of these two scenarios will happen:

1. In spite of the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision, the 3-Judge panel of the DC Circuit Court that’s hearing our appeal could rule against Priests for Life. If they do, we will immediately appeal to the Supreme Court.

2. Based on the Hobby Lobby decision, the Court rules in our favor and the Obama Administration appeals to the Supreme Court.

Since Priests for Life must be financially prepared to deal with either of those likely scenarios, it’s critically important that you help with as large a contribution as you possibly can.

So please click here and help protect your right to freedom of religion by making as large a contribution as you can.

While I cannot say so with any certainty, I am convinced that, stung by their defeat in the Hobby Lobby case and deprived of their plan to force those working in the private sector to fund their “War on the Unborn,” pro-abortion extremists in the Obama Administration will go all out to impose their will on Priests for Life and every other non-profit organization in the country.

So a date with the Supreme Court is all but certain.

And with private sector opposition to the HHS abortion mandate settled, all eyes will now turn to lawsuits filed on behalf of non-profit groups. And it appears that our lawsuit will be the deciding case.

Which is why I desperately need you to go to click here and support Priests for Life with a donation for whatever amount you can.

I’m asking you to do this because nothing less than freedom of religion is at stake.

And while I’m fully confident of victory, I’m equally resolved that Priests for Life will NOT obey, cooperate with, or tolerate in any way ObamaCare’s unjust abortion mandate. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever!

In closing I ask that you keep our lawsuit, our attorneys, the Justices on the Supreme Court and the judges on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in your prayers. Thank you again and may God bless you.

Sincerely,

Father Frank Pavone
National Director, Priests for Life


P.S. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Hobby Lobby, our attorneys sent a “Supplemental Authority Letter” to the DC Circuit Court of Appeals with compelling arguments as to why the Court should rule in Priests for Life’s favor. You can go to http://www.priestsforlife.org/hhsmandate/dc-circuit-appeal.pdf to read it.

Our attorney – Robert Muise, Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of the American Freedom Law Center – submitted a second letter to the DC Court of Appeals that makes reference to the ruling handed down by the 11th Circuit of Appeals in FAVOR of EWTN’s lawsuit against the HHS mandate. To read that letter, go to http://www.priestsforlife.org/hhsmandate/11-circuit-appeal.pdf.

P.P.S. In heartfelt appreciation for your much-needed support today, I will remember you at every Mass I offer; as do all the other priests. May God bless you.
