Priests for Life



Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented today on the poll conducted earlier this month by Knowledge Networks, Yahoo, and the Associated Press finding that most Americans do not want Roe vs. Wade reversed.

“How can we expect Americans to tell us whether they want Roe vs. Wade reversed when we evade critical details of what Roe vs. Wade says?” asked Fr. Pavone. 

The April poll asked, “In 1973 the Roe vs. Wade decision established a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion.  Would you like to see the Supreme Court overturn its Roe vs. Wade decision, or would you like to see Roe vs. Wade remain in force?” 

Fr. Pavone remarked, “Consistent with a long tradition of polling questions on Roe, this month’s poll question hides the fact that Roe permits abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy.  A majority of Americans have never agreed with such an extreme policy.” 

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