TITUSVILLE, FL – “The Democrat party has been on the offensive against the unborn child since Roe v. Wade,” Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today in response to presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders’ comments over the weekend at a Des Moines town hall meeting.
The Vermont senator said Democrats must go on the “offensive” in fighting for abortion rights against a “well-funded and extreme attack on the right of women to control their own body.”
Father Pavone responded: “If the senator wants to speak accurately about extremism, he would have to talk about his own party and the extreme abortion policies it supports and has enacted in various states, including Vermont. The true extremism is found in laws that allow babies in the womb to be killed up until the moment of birth, and that refuse medical care to those who survive abortion. The Democrats not only support these policies, but they want American taxpayers to pay for them. They are the party of extremism.”
Priests for Life is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion. For more information, visit www.EndAbortion.US.
