Father Pavone to pro-choice politicians: Clean up your act

 

Priests for Life

September 19, 2011

   
 

WASHINGTON, DC -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged voters to put the life issue first when evaluating candidates for election.


“When I preach – and help other priests to preach – the clear message that candidates and parties must defend life, some – including clergy – complain to me that my message hurts their favorite candidate or party. My response? ‘Go tell your favorite candidate or party to get the babies’ blood off their hands and clean up their act regarding defending life. Then my words won’t hurt them anymore.’ ”


Father Pavone pointed out that the positions of political parties also are important for voters to understand. Throughout the election season, voters can find information relevant to the elections at www.politicalresponsibility.com.


Voters who aren’t sure the life issue is the most important issue for a candidate should consider a candidate’s position on terrorism.


“What if a candidate supported terrorism,” Father Pavone asked. “Would citizens say, ‘Well, I disagree with you on terrorism, but what’s your health care plan? Maybe we can work together on some social programs. After all, terrorism isn’t the only issue.


“The heart of what is ‘social’ is that it respects the other person – and that means allowing them the right to life.”


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.
