April 23, 2009

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged graduating students to remember those who, because of abortion, are not participating in ceremonies with them.

“This graduation season, Notre Dame University has chosen to honor a man who couldn’t care less about protecting the unborn,” said Fr. Pavone. “I urge young men and women receiving their degrees this year to take a different path and honor those who, but for abortion, would have been with them at graduation.”

Past graduating classes have remembered the aborted in yearbooks and at commencement exercises through speeches, prayers, or just by leaving an empty chair draped with a cap and gown.

“Over 1 million students again will be missing from ceremonies,” added Fr. Pavone. “Let’s acknowledge those who could not celebrate with us, and let’s work to let others live.”

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