Fr. Pavone Calls on Pro-Abortion Catholic Democrats to Resign

 

Priests for Life


5/16/2007

       
   
  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, DC – A group of Catholic Democrats in the US Congress recently objected to comments of Pope Benedict XVI about the fact that legislators favoring the legality of abortion should not receive Communion.  They said, “Advancing respect for life and for the dignity of every human being is, as our church has taught us, our own life’s mission.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded, “Faithful Catholics, as well as those in the pro-life movement from every denomination, have had enough of this double-talk.  It is not possible to advance ‘respect for life and for the dignity of every human being’ while tolerating the dismemberment and decapitation of the human beings still in their mothers’ wombs.  These legislators do not only contradict their faith; they contradict the very meaning of public service, and should not be in public office any longer.  If they cannot muster the will to protect defenseless children, they should resign.  We don’t need public servants who can’t tell the difference between serving the public and killing the public.”

Fr. Pavone added that Priests for Life will deliver to the offices of these legislators detailed medical descriptions of the abortion procedures and will challenge them to publicly acknowledge that when they say “abortion,” they are talking about the same thing described in those medical texts, that is, the dismemberment and decapitation of tiny humans.  Priests for Life will likewise share this information with every Federal and State legislator in the country.

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
