Priests for Life


NEW YORK -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement this afternoon:
“One of the key issues at stake in the 2016 elections is religious freedom, and the persistent effort of the Obama administration to force priests and other believers to violate their faith by providing abortion-inducing drugs and contraceptives in their health care insurance. And today's action by the Supreme Court, sending the seven cases that comprise Zubik vs. Burwell back to four Circuit Courts of Appeals, does not change that fact.
“Democrats may in fact be breathing a sigh of relief that the resolution of this case may well come after this November's elections. After all, a negative decision that would result in massive fines for religious groups and possibly shut down their service activities would not look good for the party of abortion and contraception.
“But their sense of relief will be short-lived. Today's action by the Court does not make the issue go away, nor will it make voters forget the stark political differences between those who respect religious freedom and those who do not.
“Priests for Life, one of the petitioners in the Supreme Court Case, will, in concert with many other activist groups, continue to make this an election issue, and will also continue to point out that the makeup of the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, is a key implication of whom we elect to the White House and the US Senate. We urge voters to press the candidates on where they stand on religious freedom.”
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
