KICK-OFF EVENT - HEAR THE POWERFUL TESTIMONY OF A FORMER ABORTIONIST

Please take advantage of this opportunity to hear an abortionist talk about his conversion from "pro-choice" to pro-life!!

We know the location may be a long drive for some of you, so consider carpooling. You don't want to miss this.

We are joining with the Boston 40DFL campaign and other campaigns throughout the state to kick-off our Lent 2017 campaign. The program will start at 4pm with Sunday Mass. Dr. Anthony Levatino, OB, attorney, and former abortionist, will give his conversion testimony starting at about 5pm. Light supper (sandwiches, drinks, and desserts) will be served after the talk. There is NO CHARGE for this event, but we need you to RSVP so we can plan for food. Call Pauline at 508-839-7674 or email at prolifeworcester@verizon.net.

Since his conversion, Dr. Levatino has given pro-life testimony before Congress, been a featured speaker at numerous events, and worked with Live Action's Lila Rose to create a series of animated videos explaining how abortion procedures are performed. He is also the medical director for two crisis pregnancy centers.
