Fr. Frank Pavone, Director of Priests for Life, recently announced a new ad campaign designed to reach out to women and men who are suffering because of a personal abortion experience. The ads will utilize TV, radio, billboards and print media. Four newly produced TV ads were recently premiered at National Right to Life's Proudly Pro-Life Dinner at which Fr. Pavone was honored for his pro-life work through Priests for Life. The ads were designed to appeal to those who were suffering from abortion and ended with the statement, "The doors of the Church are open."
Priests for Life ads will be run in selected areas in coordination with existing Diocesan post-abortion programs such as Project-Rachel. The coordination of the ad campaign with diocesan programs will ensure maximum effectiveness of the ads on a local level.
Fr. Pavone praised the coordination effort, stating that "Priests for Life will continue to work in harmony with the goals of the bishops, both nationally and at the diocesan level."
In joint similar press releases, Priests for Life and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities praised the work being done by all those who serve the church through post-abortion ministry.
William Cardinal Keeler, Chairman of the Bishops Committee for Pro-Life Activities, after meeting with Fr. Pavone, expressed his gratitude and that of the Pro-Life Committee to Fr. Pavone and those who work with him. He also called attention to the "enormous success of the Church's outreach to those harmed by abortion." Cardinal Keeler also said that he and the Pro-Life Committee and staff "look forward to working more closely with Priests for Life in the future."
