Fr. Pavone Praises Committee Passage of Bill that Defunds Planned Parenthood


Priests for Life



NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone today praised the House Budget Committee for voting to advance the American Health Care Act, which includes a provision to defund Planned Parenthood. 

“Killing is not health care,” said Fr. Pavone.  “It’s altogether proper that hundreds of millions of dollars in payments to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest terminator of unborn babies, be stopped under any legislation that reforms our health care system.”

The House Budget Committee today approved the bill to “repeal and replace” Obamacare and sent the measure to the House Rules Committee.  The provision to defund Planned Parenthood was a key part of the Obamacare repeal bill that was approved by the previous Congress, but that was vetoed by then-President Obama.

“Any measure that protects taxpayers from having to subsidize abortion – and any money sent to Planned Parenthood subsidizes abortion – is a positive step,” added Fr. Pavone.  “There is no reason why Americans should be coerced into keeping the lights on in clinics that destroy lives rather than heal them.”

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

Dad is being very abusive regarding my promising apartment purchase closing on March 21 2017. This is absolutely nothing compared to the abuse the unborn are getting. Planned parenthood is extremely abusive to them and the word "extremely" is an understatement. I want the abuse of the unborn to stop & no, I will not be silent! I will contact my elected reps I already did & I'll contact them again everyday if need be & I'm in Shumers state of NY, he is definitely going to hear it from me! God bless all you at priests for life!
