TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, released the following statement today, the one-year anniversary of Joe Biden’s change of heart on taxpayer funding for abortion:
“Prior to a year ago today, former Vice President Biden supported the Hyde Amendment, which protects Americans from having to spend their hard-earned tax dollars on abortion. Then under intense pressure from his colleagues in the abortion-loving Democrat party, Biden reversed course.
“Mr. Biden is famous for changing his mind, or covering his tracks. Yet even more disturbing is that he wants us to pay for the killing of children. Most Americans oppose that use of their taxpayer dollars. And what kind of leadership is it to direct money to the killing of babies? In fact, what kind of leadership allows the killing of babies in the first place?
“Voters should understand that not only is this the position of Joe Biden, but forcing taxpayers to fund baby-killing is also the explicit position of the platform of the Democrat Party. This is yet another of a long list of reasons that many voters are rejecting the Democrat Party.”

Priests for Life (EndAbortion.US) is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion. Pro-life efforts are working. The abortion rate in America is the lowest it has been since Roe v. Wade and in recent years states have passed more than 400 laws to protect the unborn. The number of freestanding abortion clinics in the U.S. has dropped from 2179 in 1991 down to 710 today, and President Trump has placed more than 200 (and counting) pro-life judges on the federal bench.
