To the Editor:
Cardinal O'Connor has to be extremely proud of Father Frank Pavone, the director of Priests for Life. Many priests in our nation have not responded to the evil of abortion in a way consistent with their sacred vocation. I pray Father Pavone will awaken these men of God to their responsibility to speak out in a more caring, more vocal, more aggressive way when it comes to the detestable evil of abortion.
