Sad news about the Priest for Life

Fr. Frank Pavone was one of the most inspirational pro-life speakers I’ve ever heard. He came through Des Moines a number of years ago and riveted the audience with his passionate defense of human life in the womb.

What stuck with me was his concern for the women suffering with guilt from their abortions.

What stuck with me was the faith-based compassion he demonstrated to women who participated in thousands of abortions until they saw the light.

What stuck with me was this is a man who is making the world a better place.

The news from Rome is that Pope Francis has defrocked Fr. Prank Pavone effective immediately. This blog won’t take sides. We don’t know all that has transpired between Fr. Pavone, his bishop, and the Holy See.

All of us at Pulse Life Advocates are saddened by the news. Nothing, though, changes my conviction that Fr. Frank Pavone has made the world a better place with his tireless defense of the unborn and his heartfelt outreach to the women so wounded by the horror of human abortion.

I don’t know what the future has in store for this ‘priest for life.’ We simply want to thank him for all the babies he has saved.

    Why was he defrocked?

      The Catholic News Agency reported he was defrocked for “blasphemous communications on social media” and “persistent disobedience of the lawful instructions of his diocesan bishop.”
