WASHINGTON, D.C. — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has released a new video highlighting President Trump’s pro-life accomplishments since assuming office in January 2017.

The video, produced at Priests for Life headquarters in Titusville, Florida, opens with the statement, “Many pro-life people worked hard to elect President Donald Trump. That hard work has paid off for the pro-life movement and the unborn.”

The video then goes on, in a “top 10” format, to summarize what he has done for the cause of protecting children in the womb.

The accomplishments include supporting pro-life legislation to protect babies and to defund the abortion industry; appointing pro-life people to key positions at the White House; ending the HHS mandate that tried to compel faith-based employers to provide free abortifacient drugs to their employees; ending U.S. funding for abortion overseas; protecting state and federal money from going to the abortion industry, and appointing outstanding judges to the federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court.

The video also touts the president’s most important accomplishment:

“The first and greatest thing that President Trump did for the pro-life movement was to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House.”

The video calls on Americans to vote in the Nov. 6 midterm elections to ensure that pro-life lawmakers remain in the majority in both the House and the Senate.

“The election of 2018 will be about the Trump voters from 2016. They need to turn out in equal and greater numbers, and this video seeks to motivate them to do just that. Just as the 2016 election defied political history, this midterm election can do the same, for the same reason: The people who want to make America great again, to make the children in the womb protected again,” Father Pavone said. “A Democrat takeover of Congress will mean that, instead of the Congress de-funding Planned Parenthood or protecting babies from painful late-term abortions, they will be embroiled in impeachment proceedings that will not in fact result in removing either the president or Justice Kavanaugh from their positions, and will only be a waste of the time and energy of the American people and those whom they elect.”

Father Pavone invited news outlets to post the video on their websites and to broadcast it on the air. An audio file is available for radio stations. Both audio and video can be found at prolifepresident.com

“In November, Americans must vote, and must vote pro-life,” he said. “The lives of millions of unborn babies depend on it.”

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

Farewell Ambassador, Welcome Justice

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose…
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away…”
Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6 KJV

In the last several days, we’ve had so many things changing that we’re having to pray hard to keep up. Certainly President Donald John Trump is moving forward with the agenda; as he is keeping his promises to make America great again. What with the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and approaching departure of UN Ambassador Nikky Haley, we can expect more transformation.

Justice Kavanaugh and his beloved family have survived a trial by fire, and he is entering into a heightened season of public service. Ambassador Haley is seeking a well-deserved break from service to humanity to attend to her family for a season. Who can blame her? Well done Madame.

We’re living in a time that when we wake up we can either ask and say: “What is happening today? Let me turn on the news.” or we can ask and say, “What’s going to happen today? Let me tune in to God.” Your outcome will be guided by your perspective. My pastor Theo McNair at Believers Bible Christian Church often teaches that we should ask God to bless our perspective.

I’m saying all this to point out that as the world is moving on around us, we should be asking ourselves, “What are we going to do in the process?”

Please check out these two audio clips (Audio One and Audio Two) of some reflections; and be encouraged as you move forward. Begin to look at your day with a new perspective. There’s a song, “Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord, I Want to See You.” Pray with open hearts, eyes and arms.

The world is out there and we step into it all the time. What are we going to do with and about the events around us? Are we going to make the world a better place or are we just going to see problems and have problems? God uses people to make history. God uses people to accomplish divine purposes. Let’s join together, pray and actually become part of the solution.

100% Surely Wrong: Facts Clouded By Emotions. So I Made Them Fix The Furniture

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

Friends, my Executive Assistant, Eugene Vigil, has an enlightening take on the Kavanaugh situation. Life teaches us that emotional responses to real or imagined injustice and desires can have unexpected results. Sometimes, as with Joseph and Potiphar’s wife, there is malice. Other times, as with Eugene’s situation, there are mistakes. You decide! Enjoy this guest blog. Alveda

The situation with the Kavanaugh appointment has called an old memory about a furniture sale to surface for me. Meanwhile, I am praying for Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh and the whole situation they find themselves in.

I don’t know what happened because I wasn’t there. But what I do know is that there are some people who will do anything to keep Judge Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court. They are even willing to rule out the possibility of Dr. Ford’s emotions overriding reality. They will do anything to protect their power no matter who they hurt. May God have mercy on their souls! I can say this because my own emotions once caused me to make a big mistake.

Memory is a funny thing. I know mine has gotten worse over the years. But I want to share a story of one particular time in my life. The year was in the late 1998 or early 1999. I was living in Albuquerque, NM at the time with my wife, two adopted children and a foster child.

My wife and I purchased a nice dining room table and eight upholstered chairs. It was the nicest one we had ever owned. It wasn’t too expensive because we purchased it on sale.

After we had had the set for a year or so we started having problems with the chairs. A couple of them began to come loose where the back of the chair met the back part of the seat. I called American Home Furniture store and explained the issue to them and they were very helpful. They asked me when I had purchased the dining room set and I told them that I wasn’t certain because I couldn’t find my receipt. I was able to nail it down to a two-three month time period.

They agreed to send out a repair person to fix the chairs which they did. He worked on either two or three chairs. I don’t quite remember.

A month or so later the problem returned and I called the store again. This time they wanted to look up the receipt in their system because I had purchased them on my credit account. They said they would review their records and get back to me.

A day or so later they called me back and said they couldn’t find the purchase I had made. I insisted that I had made the purchase and I always bought my furniture from them. My purchasing record testified to the accuracy of my statement. We spend a lot of money at their store over the years. I insisted that they send someone out to fix the chairs they sold me. Again, they agreed to do that.

Much to my dismay in a short time the chairs started wobbling again. That was it. I was going to ask them to replace the whole set.

I called and spoke to the manager of the store and we went over the situation of no receipt and his search that didn’t turn up a purchase in their system or on my account. Again I was insistent and I wanted him to resolve the problem. It took some convincing over about a half hour conversation to get him to agree to take the table and chairs back so I could purchase a different set.

I don’t know what happened but just as he had agreed to my demands an epiphany occurred. Just like that I realized that we hadn’t purchased the dining room set from them but from Montgomery Ward when they were going out of business. Boy, did I feel like a fool.

I explained to the manager what had just occurred and apologized and offered to pay them for sending out a repairman twice. The manager was very graceful and said that he appreciated my honesty and said that I didn’t need to pay them.

I could have just kept my mouth shut and I could have had a new dining room set. But that would have been dishonest. It wasn’t easy admitting to the manager that I had made a mistake not once but over several months. I was 100% sure that I had purchased the dining room set from their store. But I had made a huge mistake.

Like I said at the beginning, memory is a funny thing.

I thought about this incident as I was watching the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing when he and Dr. Ford were testifying. So much was made of Dr. Ford being 100% sure that it was Judge Kavanaugh that assaulted her. But I know from personal experience that someone can be 100% sure of something and still be mistaken.

I didn’t set out to defraud American Home Furniture. I was 100% sure I purchased the table and chairs from them. But at the end I did the right thing and told the manager that I had made a mistake.

Thanks Eugene

Let’s pray that the same grace that helped Eugene will help shed light on the issue of SCOTUS now. The lives of the innocent babies are hanging in the balance.
