Why We’re Contraception-Free

Newly engaged at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris

It was nighttime and we were at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France when I knelt down on one knee, pulled out the ring box, and asked Krista if she would do me the honor of marrying me. The reply: “Yes with all my heart!….But there was one thing that neither of us considered in the least bit: children.  And why would we have? We were just wanting to get married, not start a family. Read more

Fr. Pavone on latest video: Were these babies born alive?

NEW YORK –Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today regarding the newest video made public by the Center for Medical Progress.

“The latest video, released today, increases the evidence that Planned Parenthood is violating federal law that prohibits selling body parts or altering the abortion procedure to obtain such parts. Moreover, the video talks about obtaining full fetal cadavers. It raises the disturbing question as to whether some of these babies are born alive and then killed. Kermit Gosnell is serving life sentences for doing that. It may be time for some Planned Parenthood doctors to join him in prison.

“The discussion of full cadavers is no surprise to me; in fact, I have obtained full cadavers of aborted babies, in order to bury them, from pathologists who in turn got them from abortion clinics.”

Help Pass the Bill to Protect Children in the Womb After 20 Weeks!

January 16, 2015
This Thursday, January 22, marks the 42nd year since Roe vs Wade ushered in abortion on demand in the United States.
And it is the day of the March for Life.
On that very day, the US House of Representatives
Will vote on a bill to protect children in the womb from painful dismemberment abortions.
Would you take a moment today to urge your Representative to vote for this bill?
I explain below how to do that.
We also ask you to urge your Representative to be a co-sponsor of the bill. And today is, for all practical purposes, the last opportunity to have them do that.
I believe that the bill, called the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 36) is the most significant piece of pro-life legislation to be introduced so far on the federal level.
We have every reason to expect that we will win this vote. For the House to pass this bill will send shock waves around the world, encouraging pro-life people and worrying abortion supporters.
News will circle the globe that the United States Congress has taken a step to stop abortions after the baby reaches 20 weeks.
This is a major step away from the unrestricted abortion policy of Roe vs. Wadeand the out of control practices of the abortion industry!
And, of course, it is a major step toward ending all abortion.
Obviously, that is our ultimate goal, and we will reach it. But in order to stop a runaway train, you first have to slow it down. And this bill will do that.
The reason this bill draws the line at 20 weeks of fetal development is because that is the point at which scientific research is strongest that the child is able to feel pain.
The same kind of legislation has already been enacted in about ten states, and enjoys the support of a majority of Americans.
You can help advance this legislation with a simple phone call.
And please forward this email to as many other people as you can!
Sincerely,
Fr. Frank Pavone
