The child being buried was killed at about 14 weeks of development by prostaglandin abortion, which induces violent contractions. On the intact body can be seen the black bruises caused by these contractions. Participants in the service will be able to view the baby as they pray.

"We are holding this service in full view of the public. We are not ashamed of our youngest brothers and sisters, who continue to be brutalized by abortion. We are committed to showing the world the violent atrocity of abortion. Here in New York, we are committed to showing this atrocity to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who seems to want more abortion, not less. We are grateful that his recent effort to expand abortion in New York was stopped. But that is not enough. We call on him to admit what abortion is and to call for an end to this violence against the youngest children. We need public servants who can tell the difference between serving the public and killing the public."

Fr. Pavone said, 'Participating in a funeral for an aborted child is one of the most powerful ways to connect with the reality of these children, and the reality of abortion that killed them. That is why, on September 14, we will co-sponsor a national event in which memorial services will be held simultaneously at about 30 sites nationwide where aborted children are buried. See www.AbortionMemorials.com for details.'

ROCHESTER, NY (Priests for Life) - Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is presiding here this morning over a memorial service for an aborted baby.

"We are holding this service in full view of the public. We are not ashamed of our youngest brothers and sisters, who continue to be brutalized by abortion. We are committed to showing the world the violent atrocity of abortion.
