TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today after a federal judge ruled as unconstitutional a Trump administration rule protecting conscience rights of health-care providers.

“Once again, a judge appointed by a Democrat is standing in the way of protections for people who cannot be involved in any aspect of abortion because of deeply held religious beliefs,” Father Pavone said. “Freedom of conscience is a fundamental aspect of our human dignity. It’s what led our Founders to start this nation. And President Trump understands it well. It’s too bad Democrats don’t.

“Once again, the importance of having a pro-life White House and a pro-life majority in the Senate is underscored.

“I look forward to this unjust ruling being adjudicated in a higher court and I urge any health-care worker who is being pressured into participating in abortion to lodge a complaint to the Office of Civil Rights.”
