NEW YORK -- Fr. Frank Pavone issued the following statement on today’s House Select Investigative Panel’s hearing on the pricing of fetal tissue.
“Former prosecutors testified before a Congressional committee today that there is ample evidence to warrant further investigation into the abortion industry’s longtime practice of harvesting and selling aborted babies’ body parts. I would add that there’s a moral imperative that our nation put a halt to this horrendous practice that exploits women and treats non-consenting humans like lab rats.
“Having been involved in the effort to expose these practices since the late nineties, I am gratified by the response that the House is giving to this problem now.
“I fully expect the Obama Justice Department to do nothing that would expose the injustices of the abortion industry. My prayer, though, is that the next administration will lift up the rock under which abortion profiteers operate.”
“I urge my fellow citizens to express to the Republican members of this Panel their gratitude for the courageous work they are doing.”
