Washington, DC – The National Pro-Life Religious Council (NPRC) mourns the loss of former Illinois Congressman Henry Hyde.
"The NPRC honors Henry Hyde for his years of unparalleled work in the defense of innocent human life," said Fr. Frank Pavone, president of the multi-denominational group. "When an entire group of human beings is deprived of the protection of their very lives, there is no more urgent challenge for lawmakers than to restore that protection. We challenge today’s representatives in Congress to take up his mantle of protecting the unborn."
