Priests for Life announces four-pronged attack on abortion industry
AMARILLO, Texas, Jan. 9, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, revealed plans today to target the abortion industry in 2012 that he is confident will close many abortion mills and place many abortionists in jail.
“The approach,” Fr. Pavone explained, “is simple: a) uncover the ways abortionists break the law and get them punished for it; b) reveal the nature of the abortion procedure itself; c) show the harm abortion does to the very people the abortion industry claims to serve, and d) pray more intensely than ever for abortion to end.”
“Building on the work done by many other groups with whom we collaborate, we will begin this month to accelerate the investigation of abortion clinics, which break laws left and right. We will bring special attention to the ten abortionists in Texas who have to answer to the Texas Medical Board for numerous violations, and will see to it that they are held accountable,” Fr. Pavone explained.
“As I have said since I began my work with Priests for Life in 1993, our job is to exploit the weaknesses of the abortion industry, which is collapsing under its own weight,” he said. “The evil it does cannot withstand the light of human conscience.”
In the coming weeks, Priests for Life will provide information to churches across America, to pro-life groups, media outlets, and to the general public regarding the details of this four-pronged strategy.
“We will also communicate to prison chaplains a simple message: get ready to see a lot more abortionists in the jail cells,” said Fr. Pavone.

We also need to educate all Catholics that voting for a pro-abortion politician when there is another choice – is a MORTAL sin. There is nothing “proportionate” in the USA today to the murder of approx 1 Million innocent babies annually.
Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 7:20 AM By Bud One of the ugly facets of our supossedly free economy is considering a CEO as totally deserving and is number one in the food chain of Charitable as well as Shareholder owned companies with their rip-off boards of directors. Actually, not too far removed from the practices of our legislators! Trickle down economy is no longer viable in the United States while domestic jobs are killed and reduced to destruction of the middle classes. Who comes out on top? The CEOs of course. The Corporations consider themselves as voters via bribery and influence. Render unto Caesar??? Not, that which is put on our backs!

Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 10:06 AM By hosemonkey The abortion industry in this country would really suffer in this country if two things would happen. 1. If the U.S. Bishops would speak with one voice and Apply sanctions to the so-called “Catholic” politicians who support and defend pro-death laws, deny them Holy Communion and condemn them from the pulpit. 2. If the Catholics in the pews would follow and proclaim the Church’s teaching on abortion, contraception and the sanctity of marriage, the abortion industry would collapse overnight and many divorce lawyers would be out of business. I am convinced, though, that this will only happen by the grace of God, because American Catholics are no better than Protestants when it comes to these issues. And most U.S. Bishops are no better than the politicians when it comes to standing up for Life. Alas Babylon.
Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 11:01 AM By APO’B Our goal in the defense of life ministry is to have a long range goal of conveting the culture so no death-dealing policies or political leaders will be tolerated by the electorate. Short and medium term is to educate and so waht is possible to create such a climate. Congratulations to all who have moved the cause forward. Good to see your face back here Fr Frank. Happy 2012. Election coming up. has my prayers from ovr in the Old Country.
Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 2:48 PM By JLS Short and medium term has been going on so far for 43 years … I wonder how long the long term figures in at … hopefully long enough for pro life executives to pay off their mortgages.
Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 3:31 PM By St. Christopher Wonderful, but you left one out, good Father — identify and publish the identifies of those who profit from abortion. This is the single most powerful way to stop people from enabling or operating this industry. It is evil and evil hates the light — a cliche perhaps, but fully accurate. Do this all the time and you will greatly reduce abortion. Kudos and prayers to you, Father Pavone.
Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 4:13 PM By Juergensen Andy: You are right. Unfortunately, the USCCB is giving Catholics a workaround to the pesky abortion issue by telling them they can vote for abortionist candidates by simply “intending” not to support the candidate’s facilitation of abortion (Sec. 34, “Faithful Citizenship”). Can you imagine voting for a candidate who champions legalised child pornography and telling St. Peter at the Pearly Gates that you didn’t “intend” to support child pornography? How would that go over? I venture about the same as a vote for abortionist Obama.
Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 5:48 PM By Abeca Christian Juergensen you have always been really good to expose what is really in the Faithful Citizenship. I remember once reading it and something inside me told me something was not right in the way it was conveyed. It seemed more mumble jumble than actual direct guidance. Why is it confusing, why is it watered down? Is the USCCB concerned it may offend someone or concerned of losing it’s religious tax exempt. Are they politically correct symptoms or false compassion?
Posted Tuesday, January 10, 2012 7:39 PM By FHKJ I voted for Reagan and both Bushes. None of them did anything to stop abortion. All of them talked to the pro-lifers by phone when we marched against Roe v Wade at the White House. All of them were politicians….not leaders. I fear the judgement of God on our beloved country.
Posted Wednesday, January 11, 2012 2:05 PM By Kenneth M. Fisher FHKJ, What do you think “The Mexico City Policy” was all about? Why do you ignore the many good things that were done by the Republican Presidents? Was it enough, no! Did it limit abortions, most assuredly! God bless, yours in Their Hearts, Kenneth M. Fisher
Posted Wednesday, January 11, 2012 5:39 PM By Juergensen Abeca: Your discomfit at reading the USCCB’s “Faithful Citizenship” is justified. The document is a monument to misleading “nuances”.
Posted Wednesday, January 11, 2012 6:30 PM By JLS Every fifteen minutes in the USA, one person dies from drunk driving collisions, and 34 persons die by abortion.
Posted Thursday, January 12, 2012 3:48 AM By Traditional Angelo FHKJ, You say Reagan done nothing to stop abortion. Actually he done a great deal, he constantly spoke to the American people about the evil of destroying a child in its Mother’s womb. He had the Video “Silent Scream” shown to all the politicians he could, he encouraged all Americans to watch it. He placed on the Supreme Court those he was sure would overturn Roe v Wade. Bl. John Paul ll and Former President Ronald Reagan were allies in the battle against abortion. Reagans winning the Presidential Election twice, with unheard of Popular and Electoral vote at the time came as no surprise. The PEOPLE chose him because he spoke the truth, and put the truth into action.

Posted Thursday, January 12, 2012 7:40 PM By JLS Under Reagan, abortion did not slow down. He could have tried to stack the SCOTUS, but did not make the effort. He could have tried to persuade Congress to set aside the jurisdiction of the SCOTUS from abortion, but did not try. He could have issued executive orders to whittle back abortion, but did not attempt it. Almost all Republican senators have now voted for the law giving the govt the power and authority to bypass Bill of Rights amendments … and arrest with legal impunity American citizens: When are you Republican-ophiles going to wake up? The Republican Party is not going to save America. Their leaders have been purchased not by votes but by money. The Constitution game is effectively over. Whenever you study US History, there will never again be any realtime events … all of it is now in the history books and in the sentiments of those who lived in America before it morphed into something else. Bets are going as to when the name will be officially changed from the United States of America to who knows what. Prayer for reparation is in order, but not likely to be answered reparatively.
Posted Friday, January 13, 2012 1:28 PM By Kenneth M. Fisher JLS, Although things are really bad, you must still have hope. I was a Republican Party Officer, yet I do not put that hope in the Party, but in the many Republican elected officials who are least trying. I do believe you are wrong about Reagan not trying, did he do enough, probably not, but he at least tried. Have you read his book on Abortion? This Executive Order things has gotten completely out of control and must be brought back to within the Constitution.
