Ahead of Tuesday’s presidential election, the Rev. Frank Pavone took an aborted fetus, laid it upon an altar Sunday and posted a live video on Facebook. Pavone, a Catholic priest who heads New York-based Priests for Life, said the fetus was entrusted to him by a pathologist for burial.
During an already heated and divisive campaign season, Pavone’s video has raised questions for some about what is appropriate antiabortion and political activism in the church. As of Monday afternoon, the video, which is 44 minutes long, had 236,000 views. In it, he holds up a poster of graphics of abortion procedures.
In Pavone’s Facebook appeal, he wrote, “we have to decide if we will allow this child killing to continue in America or not. Hillary Clinton and the Democratic platform says yes, let the child-killing continue (and you pay for it); Donald Trump and the Republican platform says no, the child should be protected.”
Okay first off, that's really gross.
Secondly if the Catholic church REALLY wanted to reduce the number of abortions in this country they would advocate for the use of birth control, instead of treating women like breeding stock and telling them that if they get knocked up it is God's will.
And thirdly what ever made this priest think that Donald Trump was going to be an anti-abortion advocate?
The only thing that Trump changes more than the person he calls "Mrs. Trump," is his position on abortion.
Apparently this stunt has really blown up Pavone's face and he is receiving criticism from all sides, and is actually in danger of being disciplined by the church .
