TITUSVILLE, FL -- “Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker is delusional if he thinks the abortion bill he signed today can be described as a ‘beacon of hope’ ” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “A bill that ensures the slaughter of full-term babies can only be called a beacon of bloodshed.”

“I grieve today for the people of Illinois. Little do they know the damage that has been unleashed – and which we see each day in the tears and grief of the men and women of our Silent No More Awareness Campaign” Father Pavone continued.

“This law calls abortion a ‘fundamental right.’ The reality is that life is a fundamental right. Moreover, laws like this are not a sign of the strength of the abortion movement, but of its weakness. Abortion supporters are on the run, and are losing popular support. They see the courts slipping out of their hands, and so they no longer hide their extremism.

“That extremism is also the extremism of the Democrat Party, which is in deep need of reform, and until it abandons its support of abortion measures like this, it does not deserve a shred of political power,” Father Pavone concluded.

Priests for Life is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion. For more information, visit www.EndAbortion.US.
