Fr. Pavone Urges Congress to Defend U.S. Constitution as they understand it


Priests for Life


NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today as the 115th Congress is sworn in.

“At Priests for Life this morning, we sent out an Action Alert to congratulate all members of Congress and to ask our supporters to pledge to pray for them all, to work with those who are ready to advance the protection of the unborn, and challenge those who aren't.

“The oath of office commits the Member to defend the U.S. Constitution. They need to do so based on their own understanding of the Constitution, not the warped interpretation that a court may give to it.”

“After eight long years of the most pro-abortion administration in history, Congress can now pass legislation to protect children in the womb and see that legislation signed. It’s a historic moment.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
