A vote for Democrats is a vote for a tyrant state

Priests for Life

October 30, 2018

TITUSVILLE, FL -- The Democrat Party is advocating for the establishment of a tyrant state, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, asserted in his latest  ProLife #MAGA broadcast.

Bolstering his argument with a passage from St. John Paul II’s Evangelium Vitae, Father Pavone said that those who advocate for abortion are undermining America and attacking its founding principles.

By taking away the right to life of one class of American citizens – the unborn – pro-abortion lawmakers negate every other right Americans enjoy, including the right to education, employment, housing, health care, even freedom itself.

“Without life, we don’t have any other rights,” he said during the lecture that aired on Facebook Live and EndAbortion.TV

Father Pavone develops the argument that abortion is the most fundamental and urgent moral issue in the elections by approaching it from arithmetic (nothing takes more life), logic (every other right depends on life), and Church teaching (as articulated by recent Popes and bishops).

Father Pavone cited a passage in St. John Paul’s 1995 encyclical that said when abortion is legalized, the very nature of a state has changed.

“In this way, democracy, contradicting its own principles, effectively moves towards a form of totalitarianism. The state is no longer the ‘common home’ where all can live together on the basis of principles of fundamental equality, but is transformed into tyrant state.”

Calling abortion “the most fundamental moral issue that we deal with today,” Father Pavone cited polling following the 2016 election that showed some 49 percent of the electorate considered the abortion issue an important factor in their vote. They voted for pro-life candidates over pro-abortion candidates 31 percent to 18 percent.

The Democrat Party, in its platform, embraces unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortion.

 “This is not a party that loves America,” Father Pavone said. “No Democrat should get a single vote in this election.”

The ProLife #MAGA broadcasts will air every night at 9 p.m. ET and every morning at 10 a.m. ET between now and Election Day. See the schedule of topics and view past episodes at
