Priests for Life (PFL) has set up a politically active "training center" in Amarillo, TX, right in the back yard of Planned Parenthood of Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle (PPATP). Father Frank Pavone, director of PFL, has named this new organization, "Missionaries of the Gospel of Life."
He aims to train priests and seminarians to fight euthanasia and abortion exclusively. "The order will have a decidedly political bent, and will be active rather than contemplative," Pavone told the Los Angeles Times in March. In June, the all-male order started its first "discernment retreat" for 35 men looking to devote their lives to eliminating access to abortion. PFL has also launched a $12 million national media campaign aimed at restricting the right to abortion.
All-male order how sinister. What a shock that s Society of Apostolic Life which includes priests and deacons would actually be all male. Though I doubt if they ever called the Sisters of Life all-female.
PPATP, which operates three clinics in the area, was forced to quickly upgrade its security. "Since January, the number of protestors has significantly increased and the nature of the protests has intensified," said Claudia Stravato, CEO of PPATP. PPATP worked with PPFA and security vendors to assess its security needs, install security hardware, and develop and train staff in security procedures.
Yes peaceful protestors from Priests for Life are just so dangerous – dangerous to their financial bottom line. Just too bad children in the womb can’t upgrade their security and hire staff to protect them. I mean if I was an infant again in the womb the first thing I would install would be a one way door so that I could get out and nobody else could get in. A metal detector to warn me of scalpels coming in to my domain and a biological hazard detection system to warn me of saline or other toxic biological warfare. I would get a phone to dial 911 if it would do any good.
Child in the womb: Help me there is an intruder on my premises trying to kill me
911 Operator: Can you describe you assailant?
Child in the womb: Not really, I can only see is this big tube coming at me making a sucking sound.
911 Operator: Where are you currently located.
Child in the womb: In my mother’s womb and she is located at 212 Elm St.
911 Operator: Sorry I can’t help you. You are not a victim and this is not a crime. That is not an assailant but a doctor sworn to protect human life.
Child in the womb: But I am human life.
911 Operator: Sorry again but the Supreme Court decided you weren’t.
Child in the womb: What that makes no sense. I mean I can think and breathe and have a beating heart and can feel pain. I know something bad is happening to me.
911 Operator: Well I don’t really understand myself, but it has something to do with penumbras or something.
Child in the womb: Help me it is starting to hurt.
911 Operator: I would tell you to suck it up, but that is being done for you. Have a nice day.
