TITUSVILLE, FL – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today that lawmakers in the Vermont State Legislature, in voting for an extreme abortion bill, have “contradicted their roles as public servants.”

A bill approved in Vermont this week “creates an absolute right to abortion at any time in the pregnancy, for any reason, and by any method,” Father Pavone said. “I have invited sponsors of this bill to speak to me, in a non-adversarial manner, about why they think this kind of extreme measure needs to be on the books in Vermont. No one has taken me up on the offer.  But I am still looking forward to speaking to any lawmaker who sponsored or supports this bill.

“If legislators are not willing to talk about what’s in this bill, maybe they shouldn’t be voting for it.”

Republican Phil Scott has said he will not veto the bill but might allow it to take effect without his signature.
