Priests for Life Applauds Bishops'
Anti-Death Penalty Campaign
New York, NY: In response to the anti-death penalty campaign announced
this month by the United States Bishops, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director
of Priests for Life, made this statement: "I join my voice to all who call
for an end to capital punishment. Our Priests for Life ministry has always
taught that the use of capital punishment, even in those rare circumstances
in which it may be justified, feeds the false notion that death is a
solution to our problems. We do not solve problems by throwing
people away. Priests for Life will actively promote among the clergy this
new campaign of the bishops to educate people on capital punishment and to
call for its abolition."
