Washington, D.C. – Priests for Life National Director Fr. Frank Pavone congratulated Joseph Scheidler and the Pro-life Action League for their victory at the Supreme Court, which ruled in the Scheidler vs. NOW case in favor of the pro-life activists.

“For decades, in this case and many others, pro-choice groups have tried to paint us who oppose abortion as violent people. Today, yet again, that strategy fails.”

Fr. Pavone urged pro-life citizens to be more active than ever. “The proper response to this ruling is to increase our peaceful, legal presence at killing centers everywhere, without fear of ridicule, false arrest, or persecution. Let’s follow Joe Scheidler’s example of persevering in protest of the greatest evil of our times, abortion. In particular, pastors should call their people to prayerful protest outside abortion killing centers, and should be there with them. The Supreme Court takes our First Amendment rights seriously; so should we.”

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