AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A Roman Catholic priest who has for years been is a vocal abortion opponent last Sunday placed an aborted fetus on his altar in Amarillo and posted a video of it on two social media sites.
The Dallas Morning News reports that Rev. Frank Pavone, head of the New York-based Priests for Life, says in the video that a pathologist entrusted him with the fetus for burial.
In the 44-minute video posted to Facebook (Warning: Graphic content in video), Pavone says Hillary Clinton and the Democratic platform will allow abortion to continue, while Donald Trump and the Republican platform want to protect unborn children.
In a shorter version on Instagram, Pavone says abortion won’t stop “unless America sees abortion.”
A call seeking comment from the Amarillo Roman Catholic diocese was not immediately returned Tuesday.
