NEW YORK -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, the Catholic Church’s largest pro-life organization, issued the following statement today on the Senate’s vote not to consider legislation to defund Planned Parenthood.

“It’s disappointing but not unexpected that the Senate failed to advance the bill to defund Planned Parenthood. But there will be other opportunities coming up soon to achieve what S. 1881 will not be able to accomplish. There is more than one way to defund Planned Parenthood.

“ I am confident that investigations of this corrupt organization on the state and federal level will make it clear that beyond being defunded, Planned Parenthood needs to be shut down and those responsible for breaking federal laws regarding the sale of body parts prosecuted.”

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

Life is to precious no matter what the circumstances! We are destroying life. I think all the words have been spoken to degrade life through abortion. What a horrible memory for a woman to have to live with.
