TITUSVILLE, FL -- Reporters, talk show hosts and ordinary citizens have to stop allowing the Democrat candidates for president to lie about late-term abortion and infanticide, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today.

Commenting on an exchange between Pete Buttigieg and “The View” co-host Meghan McCain on Thursday, Father Pavone said the question the candidate was asked was about infanticide but his answer was about late-term abortion.

“He didn’t answer the question, which was, is he comfortable with laws that allow babies born alive after abortion to be killed,” Father Pavone said. “Moreover, what he said about late term abortion wasn’t much better. He fell back on the familiar – and inaccurate – trope that women only have late-term abortions for the most dire reasons.

“Not true.

“As you can listen for yourself at, healthy women carrying healthy babies can make appointments to have those babies killed by abortion even at 32 weeks or more of pregnancy.

“Ask these Democrat extremist candidates if they have any problem with that. Fact is, they don’t, but American voters do,” concluded Father Pavone.


Priests for Life (www.EndAbortion.US)  is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion. Pro-life efforts are working. The abortion rate in America is the lowest it has been since Roe v. Wade and in recent years states have passed more than 400 laws to protect the unborn. The number of freestanding abortion clinics in the U.S. has dropped from 2179 in 1991 down to 710 today, and President Trump has placed 187 (and counting) pro-life judges on the federal bench.
