Congressmen Personally Confronted by Priests, Dr. Alveda King, and Former Abortionist on Meaning of Abortion

AMARILLO, Texas, Sept. 16 /Christian Newswire/ -- Priests for Life press conference announced:

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, the nation's largest Catholic organization working exclusively to end abortion and euthanasia; Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; Former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino; and Priests for Life Pastoral Associates.

On the heels of controversies involving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Joseph Biden on Catholic doctrine, Fr. Pavone, Dr. King, Dr. Levatino, and Priests for Life Pastoral Associates will discuss their three days of meetings on Capitol Hill with Congressmen and Senators who support legal abortion. At the meetings, officials are presented with graphic diagrams and abortionists' own descriptions of how various types of abortions are performed. They are then asked, "When you say 'abortion,' is this what you mean?"

Thursday, September 18, 9:30 AM

Lisagor Room

Washington, DC 20045

The purpose of the meetings to be discussed at the press conference is to establish a starting point for the abortion debate so that those discussing it know that they are talking about the same thing. Those who support legal abortion are all too often unable or unwilling to describe what it is that they are supporting.
