Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, today said that recent statements by officials of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC) have more to do with political dogma than religious belief.

“One would think that a group that calls itself a ‘Religious Coalition’ would base its positions on Biblical or other religious grounds, but the RCRC seems to base its stances on the dictates of abortion profiteers,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Partial birth abortion can be reconciled with neither the Bible nor even the slightest respect for human life.  For the RCRC to claim that it values ‘all human life’ while supporting partial birth abortion shows that the group is confused, at best.”
