TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today in reaction to a federal judge placing a Missouri abortion law on hold.
“It’s no secret that federal judges wield enormous power, and it’s no surprise that Judge Howard Sachs in the U.S. District Court in Western Missouri has blocked a law that would save babies from abortion,” Father Pavone said. “After all, Judge Sachs was nominated by President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat.
“This is more proof that elections have consequences. If a Democrat were to get into the White House, we can expect more pro-abortion ideologues to be nominated to the federal bench, and that would lead to more life-saving laws being blocked and overturned.
“This erroneous decision should motivate us all the more to elect pro-life presidents and senators.”
