DC Appropriations Bill Shows "Pure Political Cowardice"

Priests for Life

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented today on the House leadership’s refusal to allow a separate vote on taxpayer funding for abortions in the District of Columbia.
“The House leadership knows that the public does not want to pay for abortions so they refuse to allow a separate vote on the question,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Their pure political cowardice, however, will not shield supporters of the DC appropriations bill from pro-life scrutiny.”
