Fr. Pavone issues challenge to abortion clinics: Tell women the truth


Priests for Life




New York City- Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today in response to the proposed 20-foot buffer zone around the Presidential Women’s Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.  The abortion providers have complained that the pro-life demonstrators make so much noise that it can be heard inside the clinic, causing additional distress to women in the midst of an abortion. 

“There wouldn’t be as much reason for the noise outside the clinic if those inside were straightforward with women about what an abortion is and what it does,” said Fr. Pavone.  “I challenge those who administer this abortion facility to describe the procedure clearly to the public, including the fact that the baby’s heart is beating when the abortion is performed, and that abortion procedures tear off the arms and legs of these babies.”

Fr. Pavone also encouraged the pro-life demonstrators to continue their efforts.  “As long as this clinic continues slaughtering babies, I urge pro-life people to increase the intensity of their protest and the volume of their voices, so that these women can hear the truth before making the biggest mistake of their lives.”

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