Planned Parenthood offered FREE abortions
Fr. Frank Pavone,
Students, moms and babies
From the desk of
Dear Friend of Young People,
I’m not easily shocked. But I was sickened by what Planned Parenthood of New York City did after terrorists murdered thousands in the World Trade Center.
While churches and non-profit groups rushed spiritual help, medical aid, food and funds to the victims, Planned Parenthood was bringing more death into their lives. It's outrageous, but true:
Right after the terrorist attacks, Planned Parenthood announced that for a limited time, they’d give any woman or girl a FREE ABORTION at Planned Parenthood’s centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx!
That’s right, Planned Parenthood’s idea of helping traumatized New Yorkers is to rip their precious babies apart and throw the body parts in the landfill — a horrible sin guaranteed to give suffering moms even more sorrow and anguish!
"Planned Barrenhood" targets Sept. 11 victims
Planned Parenthood is diabolical. They’re highly skilled at tempting people to sin when they’re most vulnerable. That's why they decided to target pregnant women and girls who feel shattered and desperate after the September 11 attack in New York. Planned Parenthood sees these women and their babies as easy prey.
I’m especially worried about the thousands and thousands of young high school and college girls on the New York area’s many campuses. Right now hundreds of them, no doubt, are pregnant and are undergoing powerful temptations and pressures to abort their babies.
Many pregnant girls may be out of a job because of the terrorist attack. Many may have lost their place to live. They may be deeply depressed because they lost loved ones, or even their baby’s father, in the rubble. They may be so traumatized that they can’t function normally. They may be thinking this world is just too evil to bring a child into.
These desperate girls, and their little preborn babies, are ideal targets for Planned Parenthood's abortionists. You can bet that Planned Parenthood and 355 other abortion centers in the states of New York and New Jersey are working shamelessly to lure these high school and college students into aborting their innocent little ones.
Experts predict surge in pregnancies after New York disaster
What’s more, the number of young, single pregnant girls may have increased sharply because of the terrorist attack. Why? Experts say that since the disaster, many traumatized New Yorkers have sought emotional comfort in promiscuous sex. "The impulse to sleep with someone, even a stranger," is widespread after a tragedy, reports the Los Angeles Times (Oct. 1, ’01). It’s "perhaps the most primal post-disaster reaction," and it springs from deep psychological needs to bond with others, to find reassurance, and even to help the human race survive.
"I just wanted random sex," a young New York City woman told the Times. "I wanted a man’s arms around me…I was so frightened. I wanted to feel protected." Another young Manhattan woman said she and her terrified girlfriends "all sort of wanted to be with a man" (she moved in with a male friend). A young New York man said his desire to "procreate" grew so strong after September 11 that he called up several women he knew and slept with them.
"I have heard all kinds of people say, ‘I don’t know why, but I feel like going out and having sex with strangers,’" reports Pepper Schwartz, a sociologist at the University of Washington. She predicts a surge in births about 10 months after September 11.
Fr. Pavone declares abortion "State of Emergency"
The situation is so serious that I’m declaring an abortion "STATE OF EMERGENCY" on high school and college campuses near "ground zero." Thousands of young women are about to become victims of Planned Parenthood's "abortion machine"!
That's why we urgently need to reach 100,000 high school and college students with LoveMatters.com on New York area's many campuses, including those in nearby New Jersey.
Our immediate goal is to reach 44,904 Catholic high school students in New York City and 16,629 Catholic high school students just across the Hudson River in Newark, New Jersey.
We also need to save students and babies from abortion at college campuses such as New York University (37,132 students), Columbia College (3,913 students), City College of New York (10,993 students), St. John’s University (18,478 students), Brooklyn College (15,507 students), New Jersey City University (8,301 students), Rutgers University (34,420 students) and others.
We’re focusing on helping New York-area students these next few months, but we know they’re not the only ones being lured into abortions right now.
College students all across America have returned for the fall semester. And unfortunately, many of them are busy dating and partying, often under the influence of alcohol or drugs. As you read this, countless girls are being pressured by their dates to "go all the way."
Sadly, thousands of girls will give in to this pressure. Many of them will conceive little preborn babies. Deceived by Planned Parenthood’s lies and radical feminist propaganda, many will go straight to the nearest "women’s health care center"— the abortion "clinic." This means a horrifying number of young girls’ babies will be killed around the time you and I celebrate Christmas! (God, have mercy!)
Thank God, there is a solution!
Through the grace of God, Pro-Life America has developed a comprehensive pro-life, pro-chastity newspaper called, LoveMatters.com. Designed especially for youth, this life-saving 28-page newspaper has already turned many, many kids away from sexual sins and abortion and toward the truth!
LoveMatters.com is the antidote to Planned Parenthood's lies!
Babies are being saved from abortion and students are choosing chastity thanks to the more than 600,000 copies of LoveMatters.com already distributed across the country and around the world. Here are some of the reports:
Archbishop, priests, nuns, parents, pro-lifers
MORE good news! Churches, youth groups, high schools, Catholic dioceses, chastity organizations and pro-life groups have discovered LoveMatters.com, and they're giving copies to thousands of young people.
--Archbishop Justin Rigali, St. Louis
--Joan Fasanello, Director, Life Choices, Inc., Phillipsburg, New Jersey
-- Fr. Paul A. Burke, Our Lady of Mercy Catholic High School, Fairburn, GA.
--Sister Immaculata, O.C.D., Alhambra, California
--Maicha Sloven, Friends for Life, Syracuse, New York
--Nora O’Callaghan, Director, Respect Life Office, Archdiocese of Chicago
We’ve even received requests for LoveMatters.com from priests as far away as Japan and Africa! And thanks to our generous benefactors, we've been able to ship boxes of LoveMatters.com to them.
When stars talk, kids listen!
It’s no wonder that LoveMatters.com grabs young people’s attention—and holds it till their minds are changed! You see, it uses "star power," starting right on the front cover.
When college and high school students pick up LoveMatters.com, it’s almost impossible for them not to be drawn to the famous faces and pro-morality words of celebrities such as Mel Gibson, supermodels and actresses Kim Alexis and Kathy Ireland, pro basketball star A. C. Green, actor Kirk Cameron, Grammy-winning vocalist Rebecca St. James, and more.
Today’s young people are influenced by famous entertainers and professional athletes. Through LoveMatters.com’s "stars," kids learn that "it’s OK to wait"—in fact, it’s "cool"!
Campuses say, "Send us LoveMatters.com newspapers"!
Thank God, high schools and colleges in New York and across America have approved LoveMatters.com for distribution to their students. Just visualize this eye-catching, persuasive newspaper being placed right into the hands of thousands upon thousands more high school and college students in New York City, in nearby New Jersey and in other key places.
It’s absolutely critical that we rush at least 100,000 copies of LoveMatters.com to the New York City area to help its suffering, desperate young people. We need to put our pro-chastity, pro-life newspaper into the hands of New York-area students immediately. We’ve received the "green light" from many colleges, Catholic high schools, parish youth groups and Newman Centers on college campuses.
Covenant House New York also wants a bulk shipment of LoveMatters.com to give to homeless, runaway and at-risk teens. Sr. Annelle Fitzpatrick, CSJ, Ph.D., a Covenant House counselor, recently wrote us saying, "Many of these kids have had no spiritual nurturing at all. If we could have bulk copies of a publication like LoveMatters.com, we would distribute them via Chaplains, Counselors, Resident Advisors, etc."
Kathleen M. Gallagher, Associate Director of Pro-Life Activities for the New York State Catholic Conference, e-mailed us saying she would like Catholic School Superintendents, Diocesan Directors of Religious Education, and Diocesan Directors of Youth Ministry to widely distribute LoveMatters.com in all eight Catholic dioceses in the state of New York.
We need to reach these students right away! Young people can make life-ruining mistakes when they’re "down and hurting" and under pressure. We need to be there for them right now, when the temptations are strongest!
Please don’t let Planned Parenthood reach our youth before we arm them with the truth. You and I can make a huge difference. This is such a critical time, and we desperately need your help in New York, New Jersey and elsewhere.
I’m convinced God will work miracles through this new tool
God will use LoveMatters.com to save countless students from indulging in casual sex while on dates…from going on the Pill…and from heading for the abortion mills. It’ll give students persuasive reasons to be modest and chaste—reasons they may never hear anywhere else.
I guarantee you that LoveMatters.com will save countless babies from abortion, if only we can raise the funds to put these powerful papers into the students’ hands.
That’s why I’m praying you’ll make a sacrifice today for our youth…that you'll dig deep and send the largest possible tax-deductible gift to help this urgent life-saving project.
The Bible says Jesus will reward you just for giving one of His little ones a cup of water. Think how much He’ll repay you when you help save babies’ lives and students’ souls!
Our goal is to give a copy of this baby-saving, life-changing tool to a million more college and high school students this year… including at least 100,000 students near ground zero in the New York City area before Christmas. It’ll cost about 40 cents to reach each student, or $400,000 to reach a million students.
I know that’s a large sum, but I’m confident that generous souls such as you will help us raise the whole amount. I’m praying the funds will come in quickly. The sooner they come in, the sooner we can get LoveMatters.com into the kids’ hands in New York and elsewhere, and protect them from Planned Parenthood.
Why we must act immediately
We mustn’t delay, because many students will soon face the dreaded abortion decision. They need our help now, not a year from now. So we must act immediately.
We’re depending on you to help us saturate the campuses with this proven, effective new publication. We have no one else to turn to. We need your financial support to meet the abortion "STATE OF EMERGENCY" head-on near ground zero. With your help we can save countless students and babies from abortion by Christmas.
Please consider this question: has God blessed you so much that you could make a heroic sacrifice of $4,000 to enable us to blanket a New York campus such as Brooklyn College with 10,000 copies of LoveMatters.com? Your tax-deductible gift would allow us to insert 10,000 LoveMatters.com newspapers into the student newspaper there or at another large school.
Or, your gift of $2,000 would enable us to reach 5,000 students with our eye-opening publication on a smaller campus such as St. John's University or College of Staten Island-CUNY. An offering of $1,000 would reach 2,500 students at a small college or a large high school in New York. Would it be possible for you to sacrifice one of those amounts?
We have no source of help but you
Whatever you do, please send something. We’ll be grateful beyond words for a gift in any amount—whether it’s a major gift or a widow’s mite. Besides the larger amounts, we need many, many smaller gifts. They’ll be like little streams that join together to make a mighty river.
Here’s what you can accomplish with a smaller gift: $500 will reach 1,250 students; $300 will reach 750 students; $100 will reach 250 students; $75 will reach 87 students; $50 will reach 125 students; and $35 will reach 87 students.
Remember, Planned Parenthood's three New York City abortion centers and more than 355 other New York/New Jersey abortion facilities are targeting traumatized students and their preborn babies—and that’s not counting the other 48 states! It’s our duty to defend America’s young people and their little ones.
Dear friend, please send whatever you can sacrifice, and please join me in praying for the success of this urgent project. Rest assured that I am lifting up your needs to God every day in my prayers, with all my heart.
Please make your tax-deductible gift payable to Pro-Life America. And thank you for being the best friend that many young people and their babies will ever have.
Gratefully yours for Life,
Fr. Frank Pavone
P.S. Right this moment, thousands of college and high school students in New York City and across America are being hit with powerful temptations to fornicate and then to abort their precious babies.

Sending a generous gift will give you the deep satisfaction of knowing you did your part. Thank you, dear friend, and may God reward you beyond all imagining, in this world and in the next!
