NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, tonight issued the following statement on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
“The nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court is a tremendous victory for religious freedom and, indeed, for the entire nation. His reasoned opinions in decisions upholding the rights of groups who -- like Priests for Life -- have challenged the Obama administration’s HHS mandate show that he respects the rights of Americans of all beliefs. His statements in favor of upholding the Constitution are totally in line with those of the late Justice Antonin Scalia. President Trump has made an excellent choice.
“Judge Gorsuch has impeccable credentials and was previously confirmed by the Senate by voice vote. There’s no reason for obstruction or delay. His nomination deserves a swift confirmation so that we have a full bench when the Supreme Court begins hearing arguments in April.”
