WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Priests for Life supports the efforts of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-LA; Rep. Ann Wagner, R-MO, and other House Republicans as they work to overcome Democrat obstruction of a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962).
 
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said: “At a gathering of pro-life leaders today in Washington, we went on the record supporting this bill and calling on Democrats to have the courage to sign their names to a discharge petition that would force a vote on a measure that has nothing to do with limiting abortion, but everything to do with human rights. Babies who survive an abortionist’s best efforts deserve appropriate health care.”
 
Priests for Life was also represented at a press conference today on Capitol Hill, where lawmakers and other bill supporters called for at least 21 Democrats to vote for the discharge petition, which was later introduced in the House.
 
To see which legislators have signed the petition, go to the website for the Clerk of the House.
 
“HR 962 is a bill to prevent infanticide,” Father Pavone said. “I thank the Republicans in the House for their leadership on this bill, and President Trump for his eagerness to sign it.
 
“As for the Democrats, who have now become the Party of Infanticide, if they do not draw the line at birth for when a child should be protected, then where and how do they draw it?”
 
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.
