Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, expressed support for the Commitment to America unveiled today by the Republican leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“In America today we see a battle between good and evil, and also between commonsense and insanity. The Democrats have made the nation dysfunctional and are ramming insanity down our throats. The Commitment to America, by contrast, is a breath of fresh air of commonsense and a path to an America that works,” Fr. Pavone said.
“I am grateful – but not surprised – that the Commitment to America includes the right to life as one of the freedoms we must protect,” Father Pavone continued. “The Republican Party understands that the right to life is not subject to the whims of those who are in power.
“When lawmakers are right on the abortion issue, they tend to get it right on all the other issues. They also understand that limited government, safety and freedom are all violated when government intrudes so deeply into your life that it defines you as a non-person and permits others to take your life based on nothing but their choice.”
