I received a copy of an article from Priests For Life by Fr. Frank Pavone that I would like to share.



Fr. Frank Pavone Decries New Washington Law Forcing

Churches to Pay for Abortion


Titusville, FL – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today criticized Washington Governor Jay Inslee for signing into law a bill that requires all health insurance plans in the state that cover maternity care also to cover the cost of abortions “It’s not enough that Washington’s pro-abortion Governor sees fit to trample on the rights of babies in the womb, now he’s denying the conscience rights of adults by forcing them –

without exception – to pay for killing the unborn,” said Fr. Pavone. “Governor Inslee’s signing of the so-called Reproductive Parity Act is shameful.” Washington’s new law contains no exception for individuals or employers, including churches, who object to abortion on religious or moral grounds.  A legal challenge to the measure is almost certain.

“This legislation is just one more example of how the abortion industry does not care about human rights, only its own selfish profits,” added Fr. Pavone.  “Abortion is not health care, it’s killing.

 It is fundamentally unjust to force anyone to violate his or her religious beliefs by being coerced into paying for this killing.  As the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has written, religious liberty ‘is the first freedom because if we are not free in our conscience and our practice of religion, all other freedoms are fragile. If our obligations and duties to God are

impeded, or even worse, contradicted by the government, then we can no longer claim to be a land of the free, and a beacon of hope for the world
