TITUSVILLE, FL -- Recently, Biden’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released a final rule related to the enforcement of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA), which applies to any employer with 15 or more employees.

Consequently, this new rule applies to Priests for Life.

Pursuant to this rule, Priests for Life is required to provide an “accommodation” for an employee who might seek an abortion similar to any “accommodation” it would provide for an employee who may need time off, for example, related to pregnancy or childbirth.

National Director Frank Pavone commented, “Obviously, such a rule runs afoul of Priests for Life’s total dedication to protecting children in the womb from abortion. Similarly, it directly violates Priests for Life’s fundamental right to religious freedom protected by the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

“Priests for Life will not comply with this rule as it would compel the organization to violate its core religious beliefs. If the Department of Justice or any other governmental entity seeks to enforce this rule against us, Priests for Life will immediately resist by filing a federal civil rights lawsuit challenging the enforcement action.

“Make no mistake, Priests for Life will not comply with, and will strenuously resist, this latest effort by the Biden administration to force private citizens to accept abortion. The rule reflects a diabolical disregard for human life, as well as the tendency of Democrat leaders to use every vehicle of government to impose their immorality on American citizens.”
