Fr. Pavone comments on abortion rates, reveals plans for educational projects

Philadelphia, PA -- Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today in response to new data from the Pennsylvania Department of Health about decreasing abortion rates in the state.

"The numbers of abortions continue to go down," stated Fr. Pavone. "We should avoid the temptation to oversimplify the explanations for this decrease, but we should all be happy about it and should recommit ourselves to creating alternatives to abortion and educating the public regarding what abortion is."

Explaining plans for the future, Fr. Pavone stated the following: "Starting in October, Priests for Life will launch an aggressive educational campaign about the most common abortion procedures, simply exposing the details through court testimony of practicing abortionists and medical textbooks and diagrams. That is enough for most people to reject the procedure altogether."

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
