NEW YORK  –  Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today encouraged voters in the states of Iowa and New Hampshire to lead the way in shaping this election year by their active participation in their states’ presidential primary caucuses and election.

Pavone.  “That president will have in his or her hands the power to pick the justices who will likely decide whether abortion on demand continues for the next 30 or 40 years.  We will be voting not just for our own futures, but for those of millions of unborn children as well.”

Given that fact, Priests for Life is leading a coalition of organizations in a major prayer campaign, and urging individuals, families, organizations and parishes to participate by using the prayer at
