NEW YORK - Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the passage of a House bill that would defund Planned Parenthood for one year.
“Today’s action in the House is an important step forward in ending the massive, unnecessary, and immoral funding of Planned Parenthood. We in the pro-life movement have to continue to work this process with patience, perseverance, and political wisdom, as long as it takes, to defund Planned Parenthood.
“We look forward to the election of a pro-life President next year, and increases in the pro-life members of the House and the Senate, so that we can get this job done once and for all.”
