Fr. Pavone calls for swift action against Md. abortionist


Priests for Life



GERMANTOWN, MD -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is helping to lead a prayer vigil and press conference this morning at the site of abortionist LeRoy Carhart’s late-term killing center here.

Carhart performed a 33-week abortion this past week on Jennifer Leigh Morbelli, 29, who died after the procedure, along with her daughter, Madison Leigh. Her death is being investigated. A witness says she developed complications, and Carhart could not be contacted to take care of her.

Fr. Frank will call this morning for swift action on the part of the state of Maryland to not only investigate this death but also to stop Carhart from killing children and their mothers. Fr. Frank will also ask every priest across the nation to offer two Masses: one for the repose of the soul of Jennifer and her baby Madison, and another for the conversion of abortionist LeRoy Carhart.

I will not remain silent in my lifetime, until abortion is outlawed.
The Gosnell trial finally lends credibility to what workers for LIFE have been saying along. His clinic was not the EXCEPTION, BUT THE RULE.
In every state, in every county, in every city in this country, the very same things are happening to precious, babies, either born alive on the table, or torn apart, or killed by some other means in utero.
We are talking about babies well past 24 weeks.
God had a plan for each and every one of them.
In confounds me as to why a woman, knowing she is pregnant would wait till such a late stage to have her child brutally murdered.
Even so, those who are 3 weeks pregnant are killing a living human being.
A return to moral standards, and some self-control are what's needed so desperately in this country, and I pray with all my heart that the public will begin to see that and stop using abortion as birth control.
