Priests for Life Comments on Giuliani Communion Issue


Priests for Life



Washington, DC – Rudy Giuliani, in response to Cardinal Egan’s statement that he should not have received Communion because of his support of abortion rights, said that his faith “is a deeply personal matter and should remain confidential.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded, “The Catholic faith is not simply about one’s private and confidential relationship with God.  It’s public, as evidenced by the fact that Mr. Giuliani received Communion in public.  Mr. Giuliani’s support of legal abortion is also public.  That’s why Cardinal Egan’s remarks are entirely appropriate, as is his expectation that Mr. Giuliani abide by those remarks.”

Fr. Pavone continued, “In this election cycle, we are challenging all public officials who support legal abortion to admit exactly what it is.  We have posted on YouTube a video demonstration of the two most common abortion procedures (, as described by abortionists.  We respectfully ask Mr. Giuliani, and everyone else who thinks abortion should be legal, to tell us whether, when they say ‘abortion,’ they are talking about the same thing that these videos depict.”

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