Washington, DC -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement this morning in advance of the press conference (11am, National Press Club, Washington, DC) in which he, Janet Morana, Dr. Alveda King (all of Priests for Life) and David Yerushalmi (American Freedom Law Center, representing Priests for Life) will address their challenge to the HHS mandate in the case recently accepted by the Supreme Court:

"As we hold our press conference this morning, I want to point out that seven national organizations comprised of physicians, bioethicists, and other healthcare professionals, have filed a friend of the court brief that was accepted by the US Supreme Court when it granted cert to our case a week and a half ago. The organizations are as follows:

ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN PHYSICIANS & SURGEONS, AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF PRO-LIFE OBSTETRICIANS & GYNECOLOGISTS, CHRISTIAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, THE NATIONAL CATHOLIC BIOETHICS CENTER, ALABAMA PHYSICIANS FOR LIFE, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PRO LIFE NURSES, AND NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC NURSES

"The brief that these organizations have filed provides the medical evidence that some of the "services" that we object to covering in our insurance plan do in fact act in such a way as to end a new human life after it has begun. Moreover, as health care professionals who regularly have to defend their own rights of conscience, these organizations stand with us to oppose any government coercion we face to violate our own conscience. 

"We thank these groups for standing with us, and look forward to victory in this case."
