Fr. Pavone: ‘Voices from the Womb’ will change hearts and minds


Priests for Life

October 14, 2011


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of
Priests for Life, issued the following statement about “Voices from the Womb,”
a project that gave federal lawmakers an opportunity to see babies in the womb
via ultrasound.


Fr. Frank said, “The ground-breaking project called ‘Voices
From the Womb,’ which brought live ultrasound to the U.S. Capitol Thursday, was
a stroke of brilliance that will now be repeated across the nation. It should
be required viewing for lawmakers in every state that has yet to pass a bill
ensuring that a mother has an ultrasound before aborting her child. 


“Abortion supporters claim these laws don’t respect the
woman’s ability to make informed choices,” Father Frank continued. “But on the
contrary, they precisely enhance that ability, by helping her see what she
often finds out too late, that the baby is far more developed than her
abortionist admits.” 


Father Pavone applauded the National Pro-Life Center (of
which he serves as Pastoral Director and which he helped develop) for
organizing "Voices from the Womb," together with the Stanton Project,
the Christian Defense Coalition and the Knights of Columbus, which supported
the project financially.


“When pro-life groups work together, we can change hearts
and minds, and laws,” he said.
