Fr. Pavone invites Democratic cast-offs to switch sides

 

Priests for Life


4/26/2017

       
   
 

NEW YORK -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is inviting pro-life Democrats who are no longer welcome in their party to cross the aisle.

“When DNC Chair Tom Perez issued a statement saying ‘Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,’ he was overlooking the 28 percent of Democrats who, in a Pew Research poll from last year, said they would like to see abortion illegal in all or most cases.

"Perez, and all Democratic public officials who support child-killing, are hypocrites on many levels, because they are unwilling to describe the very procedure they support. I want to hear Mr. Perez quote the medical textbooks on abortion as they describe the tearing off of the arms and legs of a baby and the crushing of her head. Then the debate can begin.

“Meanwhile, what are those pro-life Democrats to do, trapped in a party that clearly doesn’t want them? Some work to change the party. But if the party doesn't listen, switch parties! Thanks to pro-life election victories last November, the pro-life movement is poised to make real strides toward abolishing abortion in our lifetime. Anyone who wants to work with us is welcome – regardless of party affiliation!”

Here is Perez’s full statement on abortion and the Democrats:

Democrats trust women to make their own decisions. Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health. That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.  That is why I will be convening women leaders from across the country in the next week on how we can make sure our Democratic candidates and elected leaders are living up to these fundamental values.

“Whatever one’s personal beliefs about choice, no government should legislate them onto others. That is a fundamental principle Democrats of all backgrounds have always fought for, and we will continue to do so at local and national levels. At a time when women’s rights are under assault from the White House, the Republican Congress, and in states across the country, we must speak up for this principle as loudly as ever and with one voice.

"I fundamentally disagree with Heath Mello’s personal beliefs about women’s reproductive health.  It is a promising step that Mello now shares the Democratic Party’s position on women’s fundamental rights.  Every candidate who runs as a Democrat should do the same, because every woman should be able to make her own health choices. Period.”
