Priests for Life


November 3, 2009

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced today that the video posted on his You Tube page ( that describes a suction abortion has surpassed one million views.

“This is a reason to rejoice,” said Fr. Pavone, “because one of the biggest problems we have regarding abortion is that it’s hidden. Thanks to videos like this, people who think they are pro-choice become fervently pro-life. We receive testimonies literally every day about such conversions. We invite others to spread these videos.”

The suction video, available at, illustrates the most common abortion procedure. In describing it, Fr. Frank quotes abortionists and medical texts, and uses fetal models with actual instruments used in abortions. It was originally posted in March of 2008.

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