Eric Scheidler and Father Frank PavoneMy good friend and fellow pro-life warrior Fr. Frank Pavone, head of Priests for Life, has just issued a strong statement of encouragement and support for the Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom. Father Frank was one of the first pro-life leaders I reached out to when I first conceived the Rally plan with my co-chair, Monica Miller.

Father Frank declares:

The growth of the Stand Up For Religious Freedom Coalition is one of the most encouraging developments in the response of the American people to the HHS Mandate. The Coalition makes clear that this fight is not just a matter of the Catholic Church and the bishops. This is a fight for America and for religious freedom, a Constitutional right that belongs to every American, and a basic human right that belongs to every human being.

Priests for Life, and I personally, am proud to be among the first to join forces with my colleagues Eric Scheidler and Monica Miller to launch this effort, which will go far beyond the March 23 rallies. This is a fight we will conduct for as long as it takes, and through a wide variety of activities that will be needed to win the victory.

Thanks for the kind words, Father Frank! I’m honored that we’re working together on this urgent battle to defend out cherished religious liberty.
