Father Frank Pavone, national director for Priests for Life, told Newsmax he wants more protections for babies seen on ultrasounds.
He made his comments on Newsmax’s "Wake Up America," Thursday.
When asked what voters really want when it comes to the abortion issue as it relates to the midterms, he replied: "We want more protection for those babies we see on those ultrasounds. And I think to frame the issue, ask our audience how many of those babies do you want to be protected by law? And are there any abortions that you would want to see prohibited by law?
"Most Americans want to see more restrictions, yet the other day, I was praying in front of an abortion facility in New Mexico ... we had a woman say, ‘I'm 30 weeks pregnant. The baby is healthy, and I am healthy. Can I schedule an abortion?’
"They scheduled it for her right then and there."
And he said his group knows of doctors who will perform abortions at 37 weeks.
"So the question for our audience and for the American people in general: Do you really want abortion to be allowed that late? Because the fact is, the Democrats do. The choice in this election is not what they want people to think it is namely banning all abortions or allowing them.
"The choice is between expanding protections for these babies we see on the ultrasound or taking away whatever protections they do have and allowing abortion without limits until the day of birth. That's the Democrat position."
