Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement Friday on the conviction of Scott Roeder in the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller.
“Violence is antithetical to the pro-life movement,” said Fr. Pavone, “which is why Priests for Life is part of the vast chorus of pro-life groups condemning the killing of George Tiller. On the other hand, violence is the practice of the abortion industry, which kills real people in the womb every day. Moreover, abortion advocates have done numerous acts of violence against pro-life people, and I receive death threats several times a month. It would be nice to hear abortion advocacy groups condemn these things once in a while.”
