DC Appropriations Bill Shows "Pure Political Cowardice"
Says Fr. Pavone
Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National
Director of Priests for Life, commented today on
the House leadership’s refusal to allow a
separate vote on taxpayer funding for abortions
in the District of Columbia.
“The House leadership knows that the public does
not want to pay for abortions so they refuse to
allow a separate vote on the question,” said Fr.
Pavone. “Their pure political cowardice,
however, will not shield supporters of the DC
appropriations bill from pro-life scrutiny.”
