Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, applauded the remarks made Monday by Vatican Archbishop Angelo Amato, secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.  The Archbishop called abortion “terrorism with a human face” and said, “Besides the abominable terrorism of suicide bombers, which is ever-present in the media, there is the so-called terrorism with a human face, which is also a daily occurrence and just as repugnant, which continues to be propagated by the media, manipulating traditional language with expressions that hide the tragic reality of the facts.”

Fr. Pavone commented, “Our organization challenges every priest and pastor in America to repeat these words from the pulpit.  Even preachers of the Gospel can be in denial about abortion and may think that sugar-coated words will solve the problem.  They won’t.  It’s time to strengthen our language and bring it into line with the reality of what abortion is.”
