TITUSVILLE, FL – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the selection of Sen. Kamala Harris for vice president on the Democrat ticket.
“My first reaction is, so what? It doesn’t matter who runs with presidential hopeful Joe Biden because Sen. Harris belongs to the same party, with the same platform and the same embrace of abortion extremism,” Father Pavone said.
“Biden made his selection to increase his support among women and people of color, but for people who love America, who love civilization, there can be no support for any candidate in a party that calls for taxpayer-funded abortion throughout pregnancy.
“Even with Sen. Harris on the ticket, Americans will have the same choices,” Father Pavone continued. “Democrat extremism doesn’t end with abortion. In this election, voters will choose between a free market or socialism; prosperity or a ruined economy; a secure nation or open borders; the Constitution or judicial tyranny.
“The selection of a Biden running mate changes nothing,” he concluded. “One cannot vote for the Democrat ticket; it is simply not an option.”
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 200 pro-life judges on the federal bench.
