Father Frank Pavone: Mobilize those who oppose late-term abortion


Priests for Life



GERMANTOWN, MD. ---  In a keynote address Saturday, July 30, that opened the Summer of Mercy 2.0, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said the nine-day protest outside the office of late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart will "put a spotlight on the type of abortion most people oppose."


Speaking to several hundred people at Covenant Life Church, Father Pavone said poll after poll show  the majority of Americans oppose abortion beyond the first trimester.


"Most people – even those who call themselves ‘pro-choice’ -- are closer to our position than to that of Carhart," he said. "But who is mobilizing those who would oppose what Carhart is doing? No one. We need to focus the attention of Americans to the reality of what Carhart does."


Father Pavone distributed literature with quotes from late-term abortionists that leave no doubt about the nature of the brutal procedure, and urged those fighting abortion to do so using the words of the abortionists themselves as found in medical textbooks and court testimony.


Father Pavone also called for prayers for Carhart, so he will realize himself that what he is doing is wrong, the way the late Bernard Nathanson was converted to the pro-life cause.


"Let us pray and work that the day will come when Leroy Carhart will be the next Bernard Nathanson," he said. "This week is going to make history in the pro-life movement."
