Fr. Frank Pavone to Cecile Richards: No Hypocrisy, Just Freedom


Priests for Life


New York, NY -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, responded today to Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, regarding her comments in a recent interview in which she was asked about religious liberty cases like Priests for Life vs. HHS which is now in the US Supreme Court.
"Cecile Richards finds it 'incredible' and hypocritical that we want to provide health insurance coverage in a way consistent with our religious freedom," Fr. Frank stated. "Actually, what's incredible is that Priests for Life and the other petitioners have to go to the Supreme Court to defend what is already a basic right in America: to practice our faith not only in Church on Sunday but in the workplace on Monday. And as for 'hypocrisy,' that is exactly what Cecile Richards is guilty of when, for all her rhetoric about freedom of choice, she wants to deny us the freedom of choice to live out our faith.
"Cecile Richards and the Obama Administration are free to think our beliefs about contraception and abortion are ridiculous. But they are not free to disregard them. Those beliefs are protected by law and we intend to keep it that way," Fr. Frank concluded.

What is astonishing is the notion that your freedom to eliminate the freedom of others transcends the freedom of people to make their own reproductive and family choices.

The bringing forth of life is God's realm, with his daughters. Not yours. Not mine. Certainly, not the business of politicians and police.

And from you - you, of all people - who know nothing of love and children and family. I am aghast.

Your arrogance is...simply breathtaking.
