National Pro-life Religious Council:
Health Care Battle Just Begun
Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, President of the National
Pro-life Religious Council, stated this morning that the
Council, comprised of pro-life groups from many Christian
denominations, is calling upon believers to make the next move
in the health care debate.
“The American people have
spoken in this debate and yesterday our legislators spoke back.
So the ball is in our court again. Pro-life people across
America remain concerned about the abortion provisions in this
bill, despite the President’s Executive Order. Moreover, a wider
coalition of Americans oppose this legislation for other
reasons. We are confident that the legislation will be
challenged on many fronts, not only in public opinion, but also
by legal challenges. Meanwhile, the People of God should press
forward in expressing their concerns, calling for corrective
legislative action, and preparing for the elections in
November,” Fr. Pavone stated.
