Fr. Pavone on President Obama's Promise Not to Fund Abortion in "My Plan": It Depends on what the Word "Plan" Means


Priests for Life



October 27, 2009


Staten Island, NY - Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded today to President Obama's statement to Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI) that when he said in his September speech to Congress that "our plan" would not use federal dollars to fund abortion, he was not referring to any of the bills pending in Congress.

"Every time the President has spoken of not wanting to fund abortion in 'his' health care plan, no one has really known what measure he was talking about," said Fr. Pavone.  "Now we know from his conversation with Congressman Stupak that the President's 'plan' has never seen the light of day.  Or maybe, to paraphrase former President Bill Clinton, it depends on what the word 'plan' means." 

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