NEW YORK — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today saluted the efforts of Iowa Congressman Steve King, who announced he will leave an empty chair for the unborn at tonight’s State of the Union address.

“This kind of witness is exactly what’s needed to break through the blind spot that President Obama, the Democratic party and so many of the American people have about the unborn,” said Father Pavone. “There are 9 million children killed since President Obama took office, and they must be acknowledged.”
