Fr. Pavone: Extremists at ACLU will fail in bid to violate religious liberty

Priests for Life-Staten Island, NY


NEW YORK -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued a statement today regarding a lawsuit filed by the ACLU today to get all documents related to complaints against Catholic hospitals as part of an effort to force those hospitals to perform abortion.

 “We saw in the Supreme Court's action last week in our case Priests for Life vs. HHS that the Court is not willing to rule against religious liberty. Yet the ACLU has filed a suit whose ultimate goal is to do precisely that. Only in a toxic political climate could an extremist group like the ACLU even suggest that Catholic hospitals should participate in abortion. The effort will fail. 

"Moreover, one in every six hospital beds in this country is located in a Catholic facility. Catholic health care is here to stay, and trying to disrupt it helps nobody."

Fr. Pavone added, "The irony in the ACLU's effort here is twofold. First, they pretend to care that women may be killed, but any evidence of their care about tens of millions of children killed by abortion is nowhere to be found.

"And second, they complain about alleged outrages in Catholic hospitals, but any evidence of outrage at the killing, maiming, raping, and malpractice taking place as a matter of course in our nation's abortion clinics (as I helped to expose in the book Lime 5) is, again, conspicuously absent. We have no need of such hypocrisy."

As agents of hell, the ACLU wants nothing more than to destroy the Catholic Church. Thank you, Father Pavone, for keeping us consistently informed about what satan is up to with his anti-Christ agenda. We Catholics know that hell will NOT prevail against our Church.
