AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Amarillo Father Frank Pavone is making national headlines after placing an aborted fetus upon an altar and broadcasting it live to promote his ideas about the presidential election.
"We have to decide if we will allow this child killing to continue in America or not," Pavone states. "Hillary Clinton and the Democratic platform says yes, let the child-killing continue (and you pay for it); Donald Trump and the Republican platform says no, the child should be protected."
Editors note: The video below was taken directly from Father Frank Pavone's public Facebook page and is unedited. Viewer discretion is advised.
The post has since been shared more than 12,000 times. Though criticized for its blunt nature, Pavone's video also gathered support by some of the video's viewers.
"This is what has to happen to see what happens to these babies, don't blame the priest, he didn't do this... he is simply showing us what many refuse to see," wrote one poster.
Amarillo Diocese Bishop Patrick J. Zurek condemned Pavone's actions and said further investigation into the video is ongoing.
NewsChannel 10 has placed multiple calls to Priests for Life and is awaiting a response.
