Fr. Pavone: Only acceptable change to HHS mandate is to rescind it


Priests for Life



STATEN ISLAND, NY -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded to the announcement on contraception coverage from HHS with the following statement:

“The HHS is giving the public an opportunity to provide its feedback to the proposed rules. I first of all want to urge the public to take advantage of this opportunity.

“Moreover, we at Priests for Life remind the Administration that religious liberty does not just belong to religious groups and individuals; it belongs to all Americans. Objections to contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs aren’t based just on dogmas and Bibles, but on adverse health consequences and the fact that human beings, no matter how small, should not be killed.

“We see only one acceptable change regarding the mandate: rescind it completely.”

Priests for Life was one of the first organizations to launch a federal lawsuit against the HHS mandate last year.


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

You are asking us to send our opinion to the Federal Government. How? Is there an organization or an email where we can send these comments?
