Prominent Pro-life Priest Praises Alito Confirmation

Priests for Life


WASHINGTON, Jan. 31 -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented on the confirmation of Samuel Alito to the US Supreme Court this morning. “Elections have consequences. The confirmation of Samuel Alito to the US Supreme Court is now an accomplished fact. This is not simply the work of the President who nominated him and the Senators who confirmed him. This is the work of the voters, who put the President and the Senators into office.”

Fr. Pavone continued, “Priests for Life is grateful to the voters who, in the elections of 2004, were motivated by the desire to change the Supreme Court, particularly on the way it rules regarding abortion. No issue is of greater moral consequence. We expect that the changes on the Court will move us closer to an end to legal abortion in America. We renew our call to voters to make the elections of 2006 and 2008 even greater advances for the protection of the unborn.”

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