New York- A 13 part television series on the abortion industry and the pro-life fight against it has begun airing on the Eternal Word Television Network.

The series, called Defending Life," features Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life.

The first show aired March 1 and a new segment was to premiere each Monday at 4:30 a.m. and to be repeated Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 11 a.m., all Eastern time.

In the series, Father Pavone looks at the scriptural, medical, psychological, sociological and legal aspects of defending life. He has made three earlier, "Defending Life" series, also aired on EWTN.

Among those interviewed were former abortion industry worker Lorraine LaNeve, who discusses the years of grief and mental anguish she suffered because of that work; Deborah Cardamone, whose daughter died during an abortion; and Kay Stile, whose daughter ended up in a persistent vegetative state when she underwent an abortion.

Father Pavone also talked to Mark Crutcher, founder and president of Life Dynamics, about new tactics to shut down abortion clinics, and Kathy McConn, founder of The Gabriel Project, about how parishes can respond to the needs of pregnant women who are considering abortion (CNS)
