WASHINGTON, D.C. – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding the Ninth Circuit’s decision to allow Planned Parenthood’s Title X funding to be blocked while a legal challenge moves forward.

“I am delighted that the court sees the good sense in letting the president’s Protect Life Rule go into effect while the lawsuit against it unfolds,” Father Pavone said.

“This should remind us that the president is willing to do everything within the scope of his power to protect our taxpayer money from child killing. As he has often said, President Trump answers to no special interest group. He works for the American people and the American people don’t want their tax money used for abortion.

“This is another in a long list of reasons to work to re-elect President Trump in 2020.”
