Fr. Pavone on Illinois Judge’s Ruling in Abortion Clinic Case: “Lying and Killing Go Together"

Priests for Life


Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today commented on an Illinois judge’s ruling that a new Planned Parenthood facility there cannot open pending an investigation into the truthfulness of building permits filed by the abortion provider.

"It’s not surprising that Planned Parenthood lies.  Lying and killing always go together.  Aurora residents are rightly indignant that their community was deceived.  They should be even more outraged that Planned Parenthood intends to kill children in this facility,” Fr. Pavone added.  “For that reason, the facility has no moral right to open at all.”
