|It’s a busy time of year, and you may have missed my message about our urgent need and
special matching gift opportunity. If you’ve already given, THANK YOU!
|Dear Friend of Life,|
Like every other baby before or since, Jesus started life as an unborn child, hidden in the womb of His mother.
Of course it wasn’t until Jesus’ holy birth at Christmas when His glory would be seen by his parents, the angels, the shepherds who hurried from the field, and the kings who journeyed from afar. And even then, the world still had to wait to see what and who He would become.
|Just about every day in Dallas a baby is born that would not be here if not for friends like you. That’s because every day the missionary sidewalk counselors of the Catholic Pro-Life Committee, supported by the pro-life community, are ministering to save the innocent unborn outside the five abortion centers in Dallas.
And every day our counselors help two or more mothers choose life instead of death for their precious unborn babies.
Praise be to God that the CPLC sidewalk ministry has stood in the gap for over 6,000 little babies – children whose mothers canceled their abortion appointments and chose life!
And this year, astonishingly, we are on track for a second year in a row of helping to rescue more than 800 precious lives! Just through the month of November, 765 babies have been saved!
Your Christmas gift doubled to save more lives!
|This Christmas I have a special offer for you. Your donation of any amount (from now through New Year’s Eve) to help the Catholic Pro-Life Committee continue to save lives and build a culture of life in Dallas in the new year will go farther than ever to save a baby’s life and shield a mother’s heart.
Your gift will be doubled, up to $10,000, thanks to a special Christmas matching gift challenge fund!
And how urgently we need your support this year! The pro-life movement is in the most critical situation we’ve ever faced.
Americans have elected for a second term the most pro-abortion and Planned Parenthood-friendly president and administration we’ve ever had, and on top of that, the looming HHS mandate will soon try to force all organizations and companies, including Catholic ones, to pay for contraception, sterilization and abortion-causing drugs.
We don’t know what the future will bring. But we know we have a window to do all we can in the time we’ve been given to defend and protect life.
You’ll be surprised to know
This year we calculated that your gift of just $122.50 would be enough to help our sidewalk ministry save one baby – and combined with the matching gift amount, enough to save two!
God is saving more lives than ever through the CPLC – more than double most of our past 15 years on the sidewalk.
What we’re doing here is working!
But we can't do this work successfully without you. We need you!
We have an urgent need right now
The special $10,000 matching gift challenge is so critical for us this Christmas. It's critical that we raise every dollar that our ministry needs to remain faithful to our mission to save lives on the front lines, especially as we begin the new year.
Will you please make an extra special Christmas gift for LIFE this year, by December 31, to be multiplied by the donor match? Your generous gift of $122.50 – or whatever amount you can sacrifice – can and will make a difference – the difference of LIFE! Thank you so very much, and may God bless you abundantly this Advent and Christmas season!
In Christ, For Life,
