2017 American Catholic Voter Opinion Survey (158LP) | Priests For Life
2017 American Catholic Voter Opinion Survey
A National Survey of 1,000,000 American Catholics Concerning

Why Your Participation In This Survey Is So Important

Dear Priests for Life Supporter,

The election of President Donald J. Trump provides the pro-life movement an historic, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enact a strong pro-life legislation that will save the lives of millions of babies.

Priests for Life has launched a major national campaign aimed at generating enormous pressure on Congress from tens of millions of pro-life voters to quickly pass a series of pro-life laws that will save the lives of millions of babies.

We selected you for participation in this enormous survey of 1,000,000 Catholics because our research indicates that you are well-respected in your local community, that you are a well-informed Catholic, and that you vote regularly in elections. Priests for Life will share the results of this enormous survey with . . .

  • Pope Francis
  • America’s Cardinals, Bishops and priests
  • President Donald J. Trump and his top advisors
  • Members of Congress
  • America’s Supreme Court Justices and federal judges
  • Governors and state lawmakers
  • News and media organizations

You can expect this survey of 1,000,000 Catholics to get wide media coverage and for the results to be studied carefully by America’s elected officials.

A key purpose of this survey is to show America’s politicians the true views of American Catholics on ABORTION vs. LIFE. The reason this is so important is the news media keeps reporting that a majority of Catholics support abortion. But all our survey results show the truth is exactly the opposite.

Priests for Life is also very much in need of donations to help fund this $18.3 MILLION 2017 Legislative Action Campaign for Life. So please be sure also to complete the IMPORTANT DONATION REPLY section at the end of this survey.

Part A: Your Views on ABORTION vs. LIFE

STRATEGY SUMMARY: The election of President Trump provides the pro-life movement an historic, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pass pro-life legislation that holds the real possibility of saving the lives of millions of babies. It is likely that President Trump will have several Supreme Court appointments. President Trump has promised that all his Supreme Court appointments will be pro-life. So now we have a chance to enact solid pro-life legislation that will be upheld by the Supreme Court. Priests for Life supports a wide array of legislation and strategies that will significantly reduce the number of abortions.

QUESTION #2: Please indicate your level of support for or opposition to laws backed by Priests for Life listed below:

ISSUE SUMMARY: One of Priests for Life’s top legislative priorities for 2017 is to END all taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood – America’s largest abortion provider. Planned Parenthood performs more than 327,000 abortions per year and receives more than $520,000,000 in federal taxpayer money, plus tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money from the states.

ISSUE SUMMARY: Undercover investigative videos by the Center for Medical Progress have exposed Planned Parenthood’s multi-million-dollar baby torture, killing, and internal organ harvesting business. Planned Parenthood waits until the baby is in the “breech position” with feet visible so the “doctor” can grab the feet and more easily get the organs and body parts intact. Often the baby “drops out” and is born alive. But this doesn’t stop the “doctor” or “organ procurement technician” from using tools to tear the baby apart while the baby’s feet are still kicking and the heart still beating. The baby’s internal organs and body parts are then sold to the highest bidder.

OUTRAGE SUMMARY: Planned Parenthood doctors and top officials are captured on video laughing and joking about how much money they are making from their baby torture, killing, and internal organ harvesting business. One boasted that she planned to “buy a Lamborghini” sports car with all the money she’s making. A Lamborghini costs $200,000 to $400,000.

CRIME SUMMARY: It’s a serious federal crime to adjust the timing of an abortion (such as to wait until the baby is more developed and organs more valuable) in order to harvest the baby’s organs and body parts for sale. The penalty for this crime is imprisonment for up to 10 years for each offense.

Part B: Priests for Life’s 2017 Campaign to End Abortion in America

PROGRAM SUMMARY: Please indicate your level of support for or opposition to the programs described below now being conducted by Priests for Life. The combined goal of all these programs is to generate overwhelming pro-life voter pressure on Congress from millions of pro-life voters so that Congress quickly passes a pro-life agenda into law that will save the lives of millions of babies:

Dear Father Pavone,

I share your view that the election of President Trump (combined with a House and Senate under pro-life majority control) provides us with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to quickly pass a pro-life agenda into law and save the lives of millions of babies.

I agree, we must not squander this opportunity. Therefore . . .

 I am rushing my best gift to help Priests for Life . . .

 Exponentially expand all of your educational programs to show tens of millions of Americans (with your videos, TV broadcasts, advertisements, mailings, books, and pamphlets) what an abortion really is and the precious lives abortion destroys;

 Make sure every pro-life voter knows exactly where their elected Representatives in Congress stand on the life issue – because pro-abortion Catholic politicians usually try to pretend they are pro-life when talking to voters even though they vote consistently pro-abortion in Congress;

 Make sure members of Congress hear often and regularly from their pro-life constituents on how important it is for them to vote pro-life in Congress;

 Work to generate a record-breaking turnout of pro-life Catholic voters for the all-important 2018 mid-term Congressional Elections; and

 Hold pro-abortion members of the House and Senate accountable at the ballot box in 2018 (especially those pro-abortion politicians who represent pro-life states and districts).

 My best gift is in the amount of . . .
