TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, tomorrow will be present at the funeral service and burial for the 2,411 babies whose remains were found on the properties of late abortionist Ulrich George Klopfer.
The service will take place at 1 p.m. ET at Southlawn Cemetery and Palmer Funeral Home in South Bend, Indiana.
“I commend Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill for recognizing that these abortion victims are part of the human family and deserve the dignity of a proper burial,” Father Pavone said.
A few days after the babies were discovered last September, Father Pavone spoke at a press conference
at the now closed abortion mill of Klopfer in South Bend. He then led an effort, with Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, to name all of the babies
, including an additional 165 who were found later.
“The discovery of the babies brought Americans face to face with the reality of what abortion is and the humanity of these children,” Father Pavone said. “They deserved to live but were denied that most basic right. The least we can do is to give them names and to bury them.”
Tomorrow, Priests for Life will announce a new project to name all the forgotten unborn babies who have been aborted.
To those who identify as “pro-choice.” Father Pavone said: “To those who say they were disturbed by the discovery of these babies but maintain a pro-abortion position, we ask, ‘If it does not disturb you that the living bodies of these babies are torn apart by the abortionists’ instruments, why does it disturb you when their dead bodies are found?’”
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.
