PLYMOUTH, MI — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will deliver a keynote address tonight on the elections, religious freedom and the HHS mandate during the annual dinner of the American Freedom Law Center.
Father Pavone also will receive the 2016 Freedom Fighter Award during the event, along with Lilly Johnson, president of Johnson Welded Products, and Greg Cunningham, executive director of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform.
Following tonight’s event, Father Pavone’s speech will be available on the Priests for Life website, and on his social media platforms.
“We have just weeks to go to decide the fate of our nation,” Father Pavone said. “I will use every opportunity between now and Election Day to spread the message that sitting out this election is not an option. The stakes are too high.
Unless a candidate who values life and religious liberty is elected to the White House, the United States, in short order, will become unrecognizable. We cannot let that happen.”
The American Freedom Law Center represents Priests for Life in its challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate. Priests for Life vs. HHS is one of the seven cases consolidated under Zubik vs. Burwell.
Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
