  • March for Life changes venues, but strengthens its message of ending abortion

    01/21/2016 1:00:27 PM PST · by Morgana · 2 replies ^ | December 30, 2015 | Kurt Jensen Catholic News Service
    Washington The annual March for Life, set for Jan. 22, will convene in a new location in the nation's capital for the traditional midday rally. Because of the ongoing refurbishment of the National Mall and strict new regulations that require temporary flooring to protect the grass, the rally has been moved from the West Front of the Capitol to the Washington Monument grounds. "We were lucky to get that. It's going to cost us $70,000, and it's not something we budgeted for," said Jeanne Monahan-Mancini, president of March for Life. "It's the most economical wide-open space we could afford." Other...

    Thursday, January 16, 2014 Bishop Zurek: Concerns About Priests For Life Have Been "Favorably Addressed" By Kathy Schiffer Fr. Frank Pavone at the U.S. Supreme Court In 2011 Bishop Patrick Zurek, bishop of the Diocese of Amarillo, sent a letter to all the bishops of the United States, advising them that he had so many concerns about Priests For Life's $10 million budget that the organization's national director, Fr. Frank Pavone, shouldn't be trusted with donors' money. For a full year, while an investigation was pending, Father Pavone was restricted to working from a small cell in a Texas...
  • Request Denied for Proper Burial for Babies Gosnell Killed in Infanticides

    The Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s office has denied a request from a leading pro-life Catholic priest who wanted to ensure the babies abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell killed in infanticides are given a proper burial. In April, Father Frank Pavone, the director of Priests for Life, asked officials in the Kermit Gosnell murder trial case if he can have the bodies of the babies after the all of the court proceedings are finished. He wants a proper burial of the remains of 45 babies killed by the abortion practitioner and his abortion clinic staff. “These are not just medical waste. These are...
  • Fr. Frank Pavone: No compromise - the mandate has to go, period

    February 14, 2012 ( - Many have asked me whether I think that the President’s announced “accommodation” regarding the HHS mandate for health insurance coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives, and sterilization is acceptable. Absolutely not. As many Catholics and non-Catholics point out, the principal problem is that the mandate is still in place. The President’s February 10 announcement changed none of that. What remains is that all employers — not just religious ones — have to provide health insurance for their employees, and all health insurance plans have to cover abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives, and sterilization. It’s a fiction to say...

    As someone who has worked for Priests for Life, I have a perspective of the current situation that few people enjoy. Currently, there are reports of IRS problems with Priests for Life as well as debt problems with this non-profit organization. The current crisis has been brought to a climax by a recent letter issued by Bishop Zurek of Amarillo to all bishops of the USCCB asking them [and their flocks] not to contribute to Priests for Life. Additionally, Bishop Zurek has recalled Father Frank Pavone to only work inside the Diocese of Amarillo -- with no travel outside the...

    Because of President Obama's appearance and speech at Notre Dame this Sunday, some seniors will not attend their own graduation ceremony and instead join a University prayer service on the grounds at Notre Dame. No indication yet as to how many seniors will forgo the graduation ceremony. The student group behind this effort, ND Response, has made this wild hollywood style video showcasing their displeasure with Notre Dame and the President. I must say the production value is extremely high and I feel like I'm watching a trailor for some sort of hollywood blockbuster movie. Watch it here. Read...

    Washington, DC ( -- With Fred Thompson becoming the latest Republican presidential candidate to say that the federal and state government shouldn't have been involved in trying to save Terri Schiavo's life, her brother says he wants to talk with the GOP hopefuls. He says they would be more likely to support the actions Congress and the Florida legislature took to try to help his family prevent her former husband from subjecting her to a painful euthanasia death if they knew more about her case."I want to personally talk with them about Terri's case," Bobby Schindler told the Boston Globe....

    Father Pavone Asked to Leave Priests for Life New York -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life for the past eight years, has been asked by Cardinal Edward Egan to resume full-time work within the Archdiocese of New York and leave his present position with Priests for Life. The reason for the decision is the need for parish priests in New York, and is consistent with similar decisions of the Cardinal to call back many other New York priests who are on special assignment. Anthony DeStefano, Executive Director of Priests for Life, made the following statement: "We ...

She is not alone, but rather has loving parents and siblings ready to care for her for the rest of her life. She has not requested death. Yet a battle rages regarding whether Terri Schindler-Schiavo should be starved. She has sustained brain injuries and cannot speak or eat normally. Nevertheless, the only tube attached to her is a small, simple, painless feeding tube that provides her nourishment directly to...

    CoverupFr. Frank Pavone, Priests for LifeThe abortion industry is in trouble, and it's time to capitalize on that trouble. In every state, sexual activity with underage children is illegal. Moreover, if a health care worker suspects that a minor is being sexually abused, or is the victim of statutory rape, that worker is required by law to report the information to the authorities designated by the law. (Remember, statutory rape does not mean an "attack." It refers to the age of the parties.)For many months, my friends and colleagues at Life Dynamics in Denton, Texas have been gathering more information...
