Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director for Priests for Life, issued the following statement today on the introduction in Congress of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
“When polls show that 60 to more than 70 percent of the American public agree that the government should not pay for abortions, I think that qualifies as ‘common ground.’ The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act expresses the will of the people. It will save money, but more importantly, it will save lives.”
Fr. Pavone added, “Priests for Life will activate all its communications outlets and hundreds of thousands of supporters to lobby strongly for this legislation, and to challenge abortion advocates to explain why what they consider a matter of choice should be funded by force.”
Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit Priests for Life.
