Priests for Life to be on culture war’s front line this weekend in D.C.


WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Priests for Life will be on the front lines of the culture war this weekend as pro-life forces gather in front of the U.S. Supreme Court for the start of the fall term. The Court has announced it will hear oral arguments Dec. 1 in a major abortion case, Dobbs vs. Jackson’s Women’s Health Organization, which could result in the overturning of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion across the nation.

National Director Father Frank Pavone and Youth Director Bryan Kemper will lead and participate in several pro-life events planned Saturday through Monday, including:

Saturday, October 2 
10 a.m. Prayer Vigil at Planned Parenthood, 1225 4th St NE
2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Prayer Rally in front of the Supreme Court with the Purple Sash Revolution. Father Pavone and Mr. Kemper each will lead prayers.

Sunday, October 3 in front of the Supreme Court
9:30 a.m. National Rosary for Life led by Fr. Frank Pavone 
11 a.m. Interdenominational Sunday Worship Service
7 p.m. Candlelight Vigil

Monday, October 4 in front of the Supreme Court
              9 a.m. As the Court opens that day for the first day of its term, Father Pavone will join Allan Parker of The Justice Foundation for a press conference and the unrolling of two scrolls with the names of Americans who want Roe v. Wade overturned on the basis that abortion is a crime against humanity. 

“We will be at the court representing not only the half a million people who signed these scrolls, but the majority of America who reject the killing of babies,” Father Pavone said. “In my three decades of full-time national pro-life work, I have always been confident that the pro-life side was winning. But now I am more convinced than ever that the days of legal abortion in America are numbered. The events of these days will give us yet another opportunity to explain why, and to call all people to do their part in bringing that victory about.”

The events of the weekend will be livestreamed at EndAbortion.TV and on the platforms linked from there. Priests for Life has prepared more information on the Dobbs case, as well as a national prayer campaign, at
