2017 U.S. Catholic Opinion Research Survey (184H) | Priests For Life
A National Survey of 1,000,000 American Catholics

Why Your Participation In This Survey Is So Important

Dear Priests for Life Supporter,

The radical abortionists are determined to destroy President Trump and his pro-life, anti-abortion agenda by any means necessary – including impeachment.

In response, Priests for Life has launched a major national campaign aimed at supporting the President and at generating enormous pressure on Congress from tens of millions of pro-life Catholic 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 . . .

  • President Donald J. Trump and his top advisors;
  • Members of Congress;
  • America's Supreme Court Justices and federal judges;
  • Governors and state lawmakers; and
  • Local, state, and news 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 THE ABORTIONISTS VS. PRESIDENT TRUMP AND 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 I've described to you in my letter. So please be sure also to complete the IMPORTANT DONATION REPLY section after you complete 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.

STRATEGY SUMMARY: Pro-abortion and other anti-Trump groups are determined to remove the President from office by any means necessary. Priests for Life rallied millions of Catholics to vote for candidate Trump in 2016. Now, we need to once again rally Catholics across the country to support the President and prevent the abortion advocates from undoing the 2016 Elections.

QUESTION #3: 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 Mr. President,

I know that the radical abortionists are determined to destroy you and your pro-life, anti-abortion agenda by any means necessary – including impeachment. Please know you can count on me and my support against these pro-abortion fanatics as you move forward with policies to defend the unborn.

I also want to thank you for all you have done thus far to promote life and to protect the unborn. I am particularly pleased with your early actions to:

  1. Restore the "Mexico City Policy" ended by Barack Obama which withholds taxpayer funds from foreign non-governmental organizations that promote or perform abortions overseas;
  2. Allow states to cut off funding to Planned Parenthood; and
  3. Nominate and help win confirmation of the pro-life Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court.

The pro-abortion radicals are furious over these actions and terrified by what you may do next to further limit and ultimately end abortion in America – and they will use any means necessary to remove you from office.

Please rest assured that you can count on me and millions of other Catholics to stand with you and your pro-life, anti-abortion policies and actions. In the important weeks and months ahead, we will "have your back."
