Pro-Life Group Set to Target Ten Senators Up for Re-Election in 2018

Father Frank Pavone spoke exclusively with NTK Network about Priests for Life’s plans to target Senate Democrats who oppose anti-abortion legislation.

Father Frank Pavone, the National Director of Priests for Life, spoke to NTK Network about his group’s plans to target ten Democratic senators who are up for re-election in 2018 in states that President Trump won in 2016.

The ten states that Priests for Life will target are: Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Priests for Life will use a combination of online advertising and grassroots activism to highlight the gap between these senators and their constituents on the issue of abortion.

According to Pavone, the group hopes use legislation that is before Congress like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Dismemberment Abortion Ban Act to make this discrepancy clear.

Pavone claims that people who consider themselves pro-choice support these pieces of legislation when politics is taken out of the conversation.

“I think it’s going to be big,” Pavone said about the group’s efforts. “I think it is going to be very big.”

Priests for Life recently released recordings from a New Mexico abortion clinic, Southwestern Women’s Options, in which women have been able to schedule abortion procedures as late as 33 weeks into their pregnancy.

Pavone told NTK to expect more tapes to be released from other abortion clinics ahead of the 2018 midterm election.
