Opening Arguments in Priests for Life Lawsuit to Protect Your Right to Freedom of Religion are Scheduled for 10:00am
May 6, 2014
You are about to have your day in court!
I just received the following update on Priests for Life’s historic lawsuit:
FYI—our case is second on the docket. The first case has been given 15 minutes per side (so it is a 30 minute argument). Consequently, our argument will begin around 10 am (we have been given 20 minutes per side). I will be first at the podium. There is always an outside chance the case before us will drop off the docket (but don’t expect it to). See you on Thursday!
That email was sent to me by Robert Muise, the Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of the American Freedom Law Center and the lead attorney in our lawsuit against the Obama administration’s unjust and immoral HHS mandate.
Please CLICK HERE and support Priests for Life’s lawsuit!
Remember, although three of us from Priests for Life are specifically named as plaintiffs in our lawsuit – myself, Janet Morana our Executive Director, and Dr. Alveda King, PFL Director for African-American Outreach – in a very real sense …
YOU ARE A PLAINTIFF, too!
That’s because Priests for Life filed our lawsuit in direct response to the government’s attempt to take away YOUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT to fight for an end to the injustice of abortion!
Our lawsuit is to religious ministries what the Hobby Lobby case is to private businesses.
What makes it so important is the fact that its outcome will set a legal precedent for generations to come!
If we lose, our case will become a legal sledge hammer that the federal government and the abortion industry will use in an effort to bludgeon the People of Life into submission.
So don’t sit back and allow the federal government to:
a) Dictate how and when and where you can practice your religion.
b) Tell you what constitutes practicing religion and what doesn’t.
c) Force you to take part in immoral actions that violate your conscience. And …
d) Establish federal regulations that both restrict your right to freedom of speech and compel you to say things you do not believe.
And the best way to do so right now is to:
CLICK HERE and make a contribution to Priests for Life’s Legal Fund so that we can sustain our lawsuit and, through it, protect your First Amendment rights to freedom of religion and freedom of speech.
We simply cannot fight the might and power of the federal government alone.
No single one of us can.
We’ve got to stand together in this.
So please CLICK HERE and help today.
The size of your gift is not nearly as important as is the fact that you give what you can, and that you do so right now. Before you delete my email and move on to your next one.
If you can make a contribution of $1,500 to help protect your religious liberty, then do so.
If all you can do today is send $25 or $15, then do that.
Your dollars are desperately needed because, win or lose in the D.C. Court of Appeals …
Priests for Life’s lawsuit is going to the Supreme Court!
If the Appeals Court rules in our favor, the government will likely appeal to the Supreme Court.
And if the Appeals Court rules in favor of the government, Priests for Life will appeal to the Supreme Court.
Which is why it is so important that our Legal Fund be replenished at every opportunity.
So please CLICK HERE and make a contribution that will allow Priests for Life to fight for YOUR RIGHT to freedom of religion and freedom of speech.
Opening arguments in our historic appeal will be made right around 10:00am this Thursday May 8.
It’s all hands on deck right now as continue to fight the government’s attempt to compel you and all Americans to take a direct role in the grave evil of abortion.
Thank you for whatever help you can give today.
And please circle May 8 on your calendar and PRAY for Rob Muise and his legal team. Ask the Holy Spirit to be with them as they present our case against the government. And ask Him to inspire the judges hearing our arguments to rule justly and without political bias.
Thank you again and may God bless you.
Sincerely yours in the Risen Lord,
Father Frank Pavone, National Director

For the sake of our unborn brothers and sisters, yourself, the pro-life movement, our fellow Americans and all who are to come after us …
We must protect and defend our First Amendment right to FREEDOM OF RELIGION!
