The abortion industry is collapsing according to Priests for Life
By Bill Howard and Jim Myers
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 15, 2006 (www.ColoradoCatholicHerald.com) - As abortion doctors reveal more details of the procedures and more women who have had abortions are speaking out about their awful experience, the abortion industry is collapsing, said Father Frank Pavone, national director for Staten Island, N.Y.-based Priests for Life.
Father Pavone is one of the Catholic Church’s most visible pro-life speakers, with a regular column in Catholic newspapers and a television show on EWTN. He has assisted the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the Family and has lectured around the world. He is currently assigned in the Diocese of Amarillo, Texas, where he is launching a new religious order, Missionaries of the Gospel of Life.
During a whirlwind visit April 28-30 that included visits to several parishes and talks to local pro-life groups, priests of the diocese and politicians, Father Pavone spoke about the state of the abortion industry and encouraged the pro-life movement here to step up its work with promoting pro-life legislation and speaking out to others on abortion.
“The momentum is in our direction,” he said during his main public address April 29 at Holy Apostles Church. “This is an industry crumbling from the inside.”
Father Pavone said that the abortion industry is actually less worried about not having enough doctors to perform abortions. Father Pavone said he knows many doctors who have left the industry.
“It shows that the pro-abortion lobby has not and never will be able to take the stigma away from abortion,” he said.
“You show up at these clinics and lives will be changed by your presence. The abortion industry knows this sometimes better than we do.”
