Washington, DC -- Responding to President Obama's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, Feb. 6, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has written an open letter to the President that he is asking all pro-life people to sign on to

The letter also contains a link to the full text of the President's speech.

"This speech raises troubling contradictions, and a glaring blind spot, about which we cannot be silent," Fr. Pavone declares.

Among the troubling aspects of the speech, Fr. Pavone points out that the President, while upholding consistently a policy of abortion on demand, states, "the killing of the innocent is the ultimate betrayal of God’s will."

And, while trying to force Americans to violate their faith through the HHS mandate, the President states in his speech, "Central to [human] dignity is freedom of religion -- the right of every person to practice their faith how they choose."

Fr. Pavone has promised those who sign on to the letter that he will deliver it personally to the proper people at the White House. Will it have an impact? Fr. Pavone explains, "We do not think that by writing the President a letter, he is suddenly going to have a Saint Paul conversion. That's not what we're doing here. But it is still essential to write to him publicly for the sake of helping the public to reject his errors, and to demand of him, as the letter says, an accounting to the American people as to why and how, in that speech, he would tolerate a blind spot so large as to swallow up the very principles that he spends the rest of the speech vigorously proclaiming."


The letter can also be accessed at www.LetterToObama.org.
