NEW YORK, NY — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
“Priests for Life is very pleased that the House of Representatives has passed HR 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. This is sensible and urgently needed legislation. While 221 Republicans voted for the measure, only 6 Democrats did, making one wonder what it is about being a Democrat that makes it so attractive to pay for child-killing. For that matter, the same can be asked of President Obama, who indicated he would veto the legislation, should it reach his desk.”
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.
