.- Pointing to an announcement from the Pennsylvania Department of Health that the number of abortions in that state had dropped, Fr. Frank Pavone, well-known president of the group Priests for Life, expressed his joy yesterday over the news, but encouraged recommitment to creating education and alternatives to abortion. In a statement, Fr. Pavone said that while "The numbers of abortions continue to go down…We should avoid the temptation to oversimplify the explanations for this decrease.”

He added that “we should all be happy about it and should recommit ourselves to creating alternatives to abortion and educating the public regarding what abortion is."

Fr. Pavone also laid out plans which his organization intends to implement. "Starting in October,” he said, “Priests for Life will launch an aggressive educational campaign about the most common abortion procedures, simply exposing the details through court testimony of practicing abortionists and medical textbooks and diagrams.”

“That is enough”, he pointed out, “for most people to reject the procedure altogether."
