A priest in the Catholic Diocese of Amarillo placed an aborted fetus on the altar and posted a video and message on Facebook. The message: vote for Donald Trump and the Republican Platform that says an unborn child should be protected.

Father Frank Pavone wrote on his Facebook post, “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.”

He urged his followers to “Please put this message into practice by spreading the party platform comparison piece at, praying at, and carrying out the other activities discussed at Thanks!”

The baby on the altar Father Pavone said, was “a child who was killed by abortion and entrusted to us by a pathologist for burial. We have had a funeral for this baby (see some of the funerals and burials here, who rests in a Memorial Chapel – -but today I am showing him to you because in this election we have to decide if we will allow this child killing to continue in America or not.”

The Amarillo priest leads Priests for Life, an organization based in New York.

As reported by Breitbart News, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is an ardent supporter of abortion, and even supports abortion up until a mother’s due date. Clinton has been very clear that pre-born children, even those who could be born the next day, have no constitutional rights. She said the only candidate that she would nominate as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, would be one that is staunchly pro-abortion.

This video in this Breitbart News article shows what she is supporting.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has made it very clear, “I am pro-life” and he will nominate pro-life candidates for the U.S. Supreme Court.

The priest, Father Pavone, wrote an OP-Ed for Breitbart on November 4. His article is about how important it is to be concerned about abortion laws, and ties it to the election, most specifically, the Democrat Party. But the article is about concern over abortion laws.  He says in the article:

If pro-abortion politicians gain office, they will work to repeal pro-life laws and appoint and/or approve pro-abortion judges who will strike down any law that limits or regulates abortion. How do we know this? The Democratic Platform tells us. It states, “We will continue to oppose—and seek to overturn—federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment.”
