STATEN ISLAND, NY — Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded today to the Obama administration’s announcement on Friday regarding the HHS Mandate:
“I do not see any change that satisfies the moral and legal concerns that Priests for Life, as the second Catholic organization to launch a federal lawsuit against the mandate, has articulated for over a year now, both inside and outside the courts. Therefore, I am meeting with our attorneys today to prepare a renewed lawsuit.
“Up to now, the courts have secured protection for Priests for Life from enforcement of the mandate. But that is not enough for us. We want it declared unconstitutional, so that neither we nor anyone else has to endure its unjust and immoral demands.”
