Fr. Frank Pavone says Democrats’ draft platform is “the most destructive ever” of the right to life


Priests for Life


Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today condemned the pro-abortion language in the Democratic Party’s newly released Draft Platform.
“It would be one thing if a major party’s platform ignored the rights of millions of Americans, but the Democrats’ draft platform is far worse than that,” stated Fr. Pavone.  “The Democrats’ proposed platform does to the right to life what abortion does to babies – it mutilates, crushes, and discards it.  As far as civil rights for the unborn are concerned, if approved, this would be the most destructive party platform ever.”
A Democratic Party press release states that the group’s draft platform, to be voted upon by delegates at the party’s national convention later this month, “goes further than previous Democratic platforms on women’s reproductive rights.”  The document calls for the overturn of “all federal and state laws that impede a woman’s access to abortion” including limitations on taxpayer funding for abortion.  It also expresses strong support for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest child termination business.
Fr. Pavone noted, "These so-called "impediments" are actually commonsense measures supported by large majorities of the American people -- Republicans and Democrats alike -- who have never agreed with the extreme position of the Democratic Party platform and the elites of the party. They are out of touch with the American people, with the proper understanding of government's role to protect life, and out of touch with the God who gives life and calls us to defend it."
