Fr. Pavone – Debate makes candidates’ positions on human life crystal clear


Priests for Life



NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has issued the following statement on the third presidential debate between Donald J. Trump and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“The candidates agreed on one important point – in this election, the Supreme Court is the central issue of the campaign.  But that’s where the agreement ends. 

“Mrs. Clinton defended partial-birth abortion, falsely stated that China no longer has forced abortions, and said it was ‘scare rhetoric’ to say that babies are ‘ripped from the womb’ at nine months.  Mr. Trump said that he finds partial-birth abortion unacceptable and that he will appoint justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade and send abortion law back to the states.

“The facts are that babies actually are torn limb from limb by dismemberment abortions.  To say they are ‘ripped from the womb’ is not ‘scare rhetoric,’ it’s simply descriptive of what happens in abortions.  As for the claim that China does not perform forced abortions on women anymore, human rights experts will vehemently disagree. 

“The most crucial fact for this election is that the next President will appoint at least one and possibly two or three justices to the Supreme Court.  Our future and the future of countless children’s lives are at stake in this race.”

Dear Fr. Frank,

Mr. Donald J. Trump did a phenomenal job tonight at the 3rd debate.

I suggest every church in America sing "when the Saints come marching in" when Mr. Donald J. Trump & his Vice President Gov. Mike Pence win the White House and all Americans begin living more freely a Culture of Life and within a government of, by, and for the people.

Blessed Times.

My best,

Totally agree. You see the real difference between them. This is the most important issue in the election. If all Catholics and other pro-life faithful would just vote for Mr. Trump, no matter their other misgivings. The pro-life movement would have an advocate in the White House.
