WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today announced the launch of a new prayer campaign centered around the Louisiana abortion law that will be reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court on March 4.
“For the first time since 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing a case directly dealing with abortion, and it is the first such case in which Justices Neil Gorsuch and Bret Kavanaugh will have a vote in the outcome,” Father Pavone said. “At issue is a Louisiana law, the Unsafe Abortion Protection Act, by which, among other things, abortionists are required to have hospital admitting privileges in nearby hospitals.
“At issue likewise is a cross-petition filed by Louisiana challenging the standing of abortionists to sue on behalf of women who have abortions. As we know, these abortionists do not have any close relationship with these women, and it is a conflict of interest for them to challenge in court the very regulations that would protect these women from actions of these same abortionists.”
Briefs from members of Congress and from many pro-life groups, including Priests for Life, have been filed. Priests for Life also will lead a rally in front of the Supreme Court on the day oral arguments are heard. A decision is expected in late June.
“We invite you to join the prayer campaign from now until the decision of the Court is handed down,” Father Pavone said. “The prayer I have written for this special intention is at www.SupremeCourtVictory.com.”
