Fr. Frank Pavone on the passing of Phyllis Schlafly


Priests for Life



NEW YORK  – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today released the following statement on the passing of Eagle Forum President and longtime pro-life advocate Phyllis Schlafly:

"The nation has lost an iconic leader, and my team and I have lost a colleague and friend. The contributions Phyllis Schlafly has made to the life of our nation, politically and culturally, for well over half a century, are incalculable. And right up to her last days, at age 92, she never lost the clarity of thought, or the boldness to express that thought, nor the passion for making a difference and the wisdom to know how.

“There are countless people alive today who would have been aborted but for the work of Phyllis Schlafly. Advocates and opponents of the so called Equal Rights Amendment acknowledge that but for Mrs. Schlafly’s efforts, the ERA would have been adopted.  And if it had been approved as originally written, it would have been used by liberal judges to strike down virtually any pro-life law.  

"Moreover, the steadfast manner in which she worked to preserve the pro-life plank in the Republican Party platform puts us all in her debt. The first purpose of government is to protect the lives of the citizens, and the first duty of voters is to elect public servants who know the difference between serving the public and killing the public.

"We join Phyllis' family, as well as her great team at Eagle Forum, in thanking God for her life, in mourning her death, and in committing ourselves to following her example and continuing her work."

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