Pray for the bereaved family… “First and foremost, violence is reprehensible. A sure way to stop the murdering spirit that is ravaging America is to stop murdering babies in the womb. We grieve with the family over the loss of yet another prolife valiant warrior.” Dr. Alveda C. King, Priest for Life Pastoral Associate
Father Frank Pavone: Pro-Life Activist killed while protesting abortion
September 11, 2009
There was a killing this morning of a prolife activist who was protesting abortion in front of a high school in Owossi, Michigan.
We do not know the motive yet. But this is a time to console one another, and to renew our determination to organize peaceful protests.
It is no time for fear. And I am waiting to hear the abortion advocates condemn this killing.
Fr. Frank Pavone

OWOSSO, Michigan — State police at the Corunna post have confirmed a well-known anti-abortion activist was shot multiple times and killed this morning in front of Owosso High School.
The victim’s identity has not yet been released but the shooting occurred around 7:30 a.m., after most students were off the buses and safely inside the building, said Owosso schools transportation supervisor Jayne Campbell.
Owosso High School secretary Wendy Smith said the students remain in lockdown this morning and confirmed that no students were involved and all are safe with classes going on as normal. The shooting did not occur on school property, Smith said.
Meanwhile, police have completely ringed with police tape a section of North Street in front of the school.
A black car can be seen parked at the corner of North and Whitehaven streets, where a portable oxygen tank is lying in a front yard next to a large sign bearing the image of a baby and the word “Life.”
