GERMANTOWN, MD — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is helping to lead a prayer vigil and press conference this morning at the site of abortionist LeRoy Carhart’s late-term killing center here.

Carhart performed a 33-week abortion this past week on Jennifer Leigh Morbelli, 29, who died after the procedure, along with her daughter, Madison Leigh. Her death is being investigated. A witness says she developed complications, and Carhart could not be contacted to take care of her.

Fr. Frank will call this morning for swift action on the part of the state of Maryland to not only investigate this death but also to stop Carhart from killing children and their mothers. Fr. Frank will also ask every priest across the nation to offer two Masses: one for the repose of the soul of Jennifer and her baby Madison, and another for the conversion of abortionist LeRoy Carhart.

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
