New York City- Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, issued the following press release today in gratitude to Bishop Jerome E. Listecki of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, who recently released a "policy of prudence" regarding invitations to speakers, in order to prevent misunderstanding or confusion about the teachings of the Catholic Church on abortion, homosexuality and other moral issues.

Said Fr. Pavone, "Priests for Life thanks Bishop Listecki for exercising vigilance in the matter of the positions of speakers at Catholic events. When this relates to abortion, it is about more than defending the integrity of Catholic teaching. It's about opposing an act of violence that cuts across and transcends all religious beliefs. I challenge those who don't understand the bishop's position to go to, look at the aborted babies, and ask whether such violence should ever be tolerated."

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