NEW YORK - Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, the Catholic Church’s largest pro-life organization, today praised House Speaker John Boehner for his swift reaction to the latest undercover video showing a high ranking Planned Parenthood official discussing the procurement and sale of unborn babies’ organs.
“I thank Speaker Boehner for his statement regarding Planned Parenthood,” said Fr. Pavone. “Priests for Life will be working closely with our friends on the Hill to advance measures to defund Planned Parenthood."
After viewing Dr. Mary Gatter talking about using “less crunchy” abortion techniques so as to produce intact baby hearts, livers, and lungs, Speaker Boehner described the video of the Planned Parenthood leader’s comments “as sickening, disturbing and callous as the last video.”
Boehner also called upon President Obama to denounce “these horrific practices,” saying that the President “has a responsibility to also speak out immediately and stop these practices now.”
