Fr. Pavone Urges Congress to Approve the Protect Life Act; Stop Abortion Funding in Health Care


Priests for Life



Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today called on Congress to pass H.R. 358, the Protect Life Act, a bill that would bar abortion funding in the President’s health care law.


Majority Leader Eric Cantor has announced that the House will vote on the Protect Life Act next week.  The bill would bar the President’s “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” from directly or indirectly funding abortions and would add right of conscience protections for health care workers unwilling to participate in abortions.


“Congress needs to take the funding wiggle room out of health care and close the loopholes – it needs to pass the Protect Life Act so that the public doesn’t have to pay for abortion,” Fr. Pavone said. “Moreover, those who work in the health care industry and who live out their deeply held beliefs need more conscience protection and they need it in writing. This Act will strengthen their protection.”


Priests for Life today alerted every Catholic parish in the nation to have its people call their Congressional representative about this bill.
