NEW YORK – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the court order blocking the release of undercover videos showing employees of a tissue procurement firm that works in tandem with Planned Parenthood.
“The temporary restraining order which StemExpress obtained against our colleagues at the Center for Medical Progress is a very narrow one that will not affect the release of more powerful videos to come, including the one released this morning. The order, which was hastily issued, will be followed up with a hearing in a few weeks.
“There is no surprise here. StemExpress and Planned Parenthood are guilty of both moral and legal wrongdoing, and ultimately their only defense is to try to shut us up. That effort will fail.
“We at Priests for Life not only will continue to help lead the effort to make the public aware of the atrocities of abortion and the sale of baby body parts, but we will do so in direct defiance of any effort to stop us or our pro-life colleagues.”
