National Priest Leader Stands with Former “Racketeer”

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented today on the legal victory of Joseph Scheidler, National Director of the Pro-Life Action League.  Earlier this week, the 21-year-old case of NOW vs. Scheidler came to a definitive end as Judge David Coar entered final judgment in that case, formally clearing Mr. Scheidler of racketeering charges.

“Abortion advocates have again lost,” Fr. Pavone declared, “in their efforts to stop Joe and all those who stand with him from working peacefully to stop the killing of children in the womb.  I have been proud to be associated with Joe from my very first days as National Director of Priests for Life.  I have been with him in the Supreme Court as well as in the streets, and we have followed this case at every step, providing all the assistance we could.”

“Now, a new chapter begins,” Fr. Pavone continued.  “It is time for everyone who knows that abortion is murder to act like it.  We’ve talked long enough.  It’s time to take to the streets, awaken the conscience of the nation, and intervene peacefully to save the lives of the thousands who are led to slaughter each day in the abortion mills of our cities.”
