Washington, DC – Now that the Supreme Court has set the date (Wednesday, November 8) for oral arguments in Gonzales v. Carhart and Gonzales v. Planned Parenthood, the two cases related to the federal ban on partial-birth abortion, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has called for increased public education about this procedure.


“Despite the fact that this procedure, by which a child is partially delivered and then killed with scissors in the back of the neck, has gotten national attention for over a decade, there still aren’t enough Americans who know about it.  As people do learn what it is, they re-evaluate the whole idea of ‘pro-choice’ and ‘Roe v. Wade,’ because they never imagined either of those terms connected with such a brutal and repulsive procedure,” Fr. Pavone explained.  “In the months to come we will intensify our efforts to reveal the ugly face of ‘pro-choice’ by exposing this procedure, and we call on pastors and other organizations to do the same.”


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