NEW YORK -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the Senate health care bill:
“I am pleased that the Senate has decided to debate and vote on a replacement bill for Obamacare, and I’m grateful for the thousands of Priests for Life supporters who, at our suggestion, contacted their senators to let them know that the pro-life provisions in the bill had to be retained. Those provisions cut off federal funds to Planned Parenthood that come from Medicaid and other grants, and prohibit tax dollars from funding insurance plans that cover abortion.
“We are confident that at the end of the Senate’s long night these provisions will remain.”
Father Pavone also expressed the gratitude of the entire Priests for Life organization to President Trump for standing firm on health-care reform and its pro-life provisions.
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.
