(Des Moines, IA) Iowa Right to Life’s  Robert C. Dopf Annual Celebrate Life Banquet with special guest, Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, will be held this Saturday, April 26, at 6:30pm, in the Ballroom of the Sheraton West Des Moines Hotel, 1800-50th Street, West Des Moines, Iowa.

Father Pavone is one of the most outspoken, rousing speakers for the life movement in the world.   He was one of the few people, besides the Schindler family, that was allowed in to see Terri Schiavo in her last days.  He was the one who made the shocking observation that the flowers in the room were being watered, while Terri herself died of hunger and thirst.

He is the author of two books, Ending Abortion, Not Just Fighting It, and Pro-life Reflections for Every Day.
