Pope’s words at White House have implications for the unborn

Priests for Life-Staten Island, NY


PHILADELPHIA -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and author of Abolishing Abortion, issued the following statement regarding Pope Francis’s speech at the White House today.

“Anyone who was listening to the words of Pope Francis heard, as I did, very profound implications for our fight against abortion.

“When the pope spoke of having an opportunity to offer ‘words of encouragement’ to lawmakers as they guide the nation in fidelity ‘to its founding principles,’ he was clearly referring to the Declaration of Independence and its guarantee, first and foremost, of the right to life.

“He also defended traditional marriage when he spoke of coming to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families to ‘celebrate and support the institutions of marriage and the family at this, a critical moment in the history of our civilization.’

“And when he spoke of building a tolerant society, ‘rejecting every form of unjust discrimination,’ we can see that abortion is the ultimate injustice and discrimination against the unborn. When the pope says we must defend the rights of everyone, that clearly includes the unborn.”

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