Dear friend,

Five days into our spring fundraising campaign, we are off to a much slower start than usual. So far we have only raised just over 3% of our necessary minimum $120,000 goal.

However, I’m not anxious. I am confident that you will come through for us, as you always have when we have been honest with you about what our needs are.

There has been a lot on people’s minds the past week with the election of Pope Francis and so many other major developments. So, we can understand if those first few days of our appeal were put on the back burner.

We, too, have been consumed with trying to provide you with the best reporting on the recent tidal wave of historic news developments. I think you would agree with me that the LSN team has done an outstanding job these past few weeks and days.

So if you can, please send a donation today to help fund the LifeSiteNews truth in news reporting mission for the next quarter.

Today, we are launching the second of our three 1-minute videos explaining what makes different. 

I am very proud of these videos, which, besides being entertaining, also succinctly explain why hundreds of thousands of readers continue to return to as their preferred source for pro-life and pro-family news! 

Of course, there are lots of news agencies out there. But there is only one, completely dedicated to promoting the Culture of Life, and powered by a stellar team of professional, full-time reporters, working long days, and diggingdeep into the stories that matter most!

At LifeSiteNews we are never satisfied with simply reporting what others are reporting. In every case we ask, “Is this true?” And if we aren't sure, then we go to the people closest to the story to find out. Sometimes that can mean a lot of extra work. But we feel that it is worth it.

Truth is our standard. It is the goal we seek, and the measure by which we judge our work.

And if the past few months are any indication of what is to come for the remainder of the year, we have our work cut out for us!

Major battles have been waged this year, and many more are looming in the upcoming months.  From abortion to same-sex marriage to the battle for religious freedom, 2013 is shaping up to be unpre​cedented in terms of breaking news.

LifeSiteNews wants to be there to provide the stories that you won’t hear anywhere else! Literally!

Recently, for instance, the major news of the election of Pope Francis as head of the Roman Catholic Church has set the mainstream media and online news outlets on fire with speculation and commentary on the direction of the Pope’s Pontificate, much of it ill-informed and biased. 

But within mere minutes of Pope Francis’ election, was able to get you the real story about his positions on life and family. We already had his past statements translated into English, because we had closely followed the debate in Argentina over same-sex “marriage” and abortion, in which then-Cardinal Bergoglio had courageously participated!

This breaking news, in addition to the major developments around the world over just the last three months, has had our team working around the clock. 

We promise to bring you every breaking headline and provide more background information and original reporting from a pro-life and pro-family prospective than any other mainstream news outlet. 

What is that kind of promise worth to you


Please let us know with a generous donation today.  For instructions on how to send a mail-in a donation, click here.

Thank you for your support. And remember, every donation of any amount helps!

For life and family,

Steve Jalsevac
Managing Director
P.S. – Interestingly enough, if everyone who visited our site over just the next week alone gave $1, we would raise enough to cover our operating and reporting expenses for this campaign AND the next!
