Unmasking Pro-abortion Congressmen, Senators, and Candidates for Public Office

Fr. Frank Pavone, M.E.V.Thank you for joining this concerted campaign to unmask the lies and hypocrisy of pro-abortion Congressmen, Senators, and candidates for public office.

I am Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. You may remember me as the priest who was at the side of Terri Schiavo as she died, and called her husband a murderer, when he successfully led the effort to have that poor woman brutally starved and dehydrated to death.

Below is an open letter to all candidates for public office who think abortion should remain legal. We are currently spreading this letter far and wide via the internet, and to each of those candidates.

As you’ll see, it’s also a clear message to voters that they cannot elect pro-abortion candidates! (See more about what you can do for the elections at www.PoliticalResponsibility.com).

After the elections, we will continue to use it as we challenge abortion supporters to admit what they are supporting.

Please take a moment right now to be part of this historic pro-life initiative. Read the open letter to “pro-choice” candidates below and complete the attached form. Your name will be automatically added to a list of Pro-life Americans which we will be presenting to pro-abortion lawmakers and candidates when we visit them in person in coming weeks and months.
.
Thank you. May God bless you. And may God bless America.



Father Frank


An Open Letter to “Pro-choice” Candidates

October 27, 2008

Dear brothers and sisters,

In these days you are seeking the votes of your fellow Americans for public office. At the same time, you take the position that abortion, however regrettable it may be, should remain legal.

I write to express the convictions of tens of millions of citizens. Your position is a blatant contradiction to the very meaning of public service, the first requirement of which is to be able to tell the difference between serving the public and killing the public!

We ask, first of all, Have you ever seen an abortion? So many who defend abortion’s legality cannot even bring themselves to look at the horrifying pictures of children torn apart by the procedure (www.unborn.info). But if we cannot look at it, why should we tolerate it?

We likewise ask, Are you willing to publicly describe what you think should be legal? Abortionist Dr. Martin Haskell, in sworn testimony, described the “D and E” abortion procedure, still legal throughout our nation, by saying, “Typically the skull is brought out in fragments rather than as a unified piece…" (Madison, WI, May 27, 1999, Case No. 98-C-0305-S). In the same case, abortionist Dr. Hylan Raymond Giles, when asked, “Can the heart of a fetus or embryo still be beating during a suction curettage abortion as the fetus or embryo comes down the cannula?” answered, “For a few seconds to a minute, yes.”

When you say the word “abortion,” is this what you mean? When you say it should be legal, are you willing to quote those who explain what it is?

Your position is undermining the fabric of our nation. We repeat to you again the question posed by Mother Teresa in her speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC on February 3, 1994. “And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"

We have not yet heard a “pro-choice” candidate answer any of these questions.

That’s why people cannot vote for you, and you shouldn’t be asking for their vote. If you can’t respect and protect the life of a little baby, how are you supposed to respect and protect our lives, or any other right we possess?

When you ask citizens for their vote, you are actually asking them to share in your failure to protect these children. You’re asking them to share in the deception by which you justify that failure. You’re asking them, too, to contradict the meaning of public service. They are not morally permitted to say yes to what you are asking.

We in the pro-life movement do not need any reminders about the plight of young mothers. We serve them every day, providing real alternatives to abortion.

Nor do we accept the accusation that we are narrowly focused on a “single issue.” We are not ashamed of the fact that we recognize a holocaust when we see one, and that we understand the foundation, heart, and core of our concern for all the other issues – life itself.

We’re not a vote for you to court or an interest group for you to appease. Rather, our movement represents the heart and core of every movement for justice. That is why, whether you end up elected to public office or not, we will be there – in the halls of government, in the media, and on the streets of every city, town, and countryside across America – pressing the cause of justice for a group of human beings whose rights you have forgotten.

We will neither cease to remind you, nor will we wait for you to remember. Our cause is as great as America itself, and it will prevail. May you have the wisdom to join us.

Sincerely,

Fr. Frank Pavone
National Director, Priests for Life
