 The following is an item from Joel Rosenberg’s column in the June 23, 2001 issue of World Magazine.

A Catholic group with nearly 100,000 members is organizing a major national grassroots educational campaign aimed at mobilizing pro-life Catholics to "be politically active" in the 2002 elections ... "Priests For Life"-formed in 1991 with the help of the Vatican and the late New York Cardinal O’Connor-has just launched a $12 million advertising campaign with billboards, full-page ads in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, and radio and TV advertising that will start later this summer and run through next year’s campaign cycle ... the group’s national director, the Rev. Frank Pavone, speaks in parishes all over the country and is scheduled to appear on James Dobson’s radio show later this summer ... the newspaper ads focus on "examples of young women who lost their lives while getting a legal abortion" ... the ads challenge the National Organization of Women (NOW), the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), and Planned Parenthood to help launch "an investigation of the standards by which abortion clinics do or do not protect the health of their patients."
