Fr. Pavone praises House for passing Conscience Protection Act

 

Priests for Life

ROME -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, praised the U.S. House of Representatives today for passing the Conscience Protection Act.

“Given our own Supreme Court case against the HHS mandate, we at Priests for Life understand very well the dangers that freedom of conscience faces in our nation today. It is crucial that pro-life legislation like the Conscience Protection Act be made permanent law. No one should be forced to participate in abortion for any reason, nor should any entity be coerced into providing health insurance that covers abortion. I’m confident the Senate will also see the wisdom of this bill.”

The Conscience Protection Act would codify the Weldon Amendment, which prohibits federal, state, and local governments from discriminating against health care providers, including hospitals, doctors, and nurses, that refuse to provide, perform, or refer for abortions. In addition, the bill would give victims of abortion discrimination the ability to seek relief in the courts.

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
