Amarillo, TX — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, revealed plans today to target the abortion industry in 2012 that he is confident will close many abortion mills and place many abortionists in jail.
“The approach,” Fr. Pavone explained, “is simple: a) uncover the ways abortionists break the law and get them punished for it; b) reveal the nature of the abortion procedure itself; c) show the harm abortion does to the very people the abortion industry claims to serve, and d) pray more intensely than ever for abortion to end.”
“Building on the work done by many other groups with whom we collaborate, we will begin this month to accelerate the investigation of abortion clinics, which break laws left and right. We will bring special attention to the ten abortionists in Texas who have to answer to the Texas Medical Board for numerous violations, and will see to it that they are held accountable,” Fr. Pavone explained.
“As I have said since I began my work with Priests for Life in 1993, our job is to exploit the weaknesses of the abortion industry, which is collapsing under its own weight. The evil it does cannot withstand the light of human conscience.”
In the coming weeks, Priests for Life will provide information to Churches across America, to pro-life groups, media outlets, and to the general public regarding the details of this four-pronged strategy. “We will also communicate to prison chaplains a simple message: get ready to see a lot more abortionists in the jail cells.”
Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit Priests for Life.
