Pro-Life Priests Don’t Mince Words on Who You Should Vote For

CBN News Paul Strand

WASHINGTON — A group of Catholic leaders gathered in the nation’s capital Thursday to say Americans have a duty to vote. And they insisted pro-life voters must vote for candidates who’ll fight abortion.
Speaking at a news conference at the National Press Club, these priests and pastors didn’t actually endorse any candidates by name. But they said the final presidential debate showed a stark difference between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton when it comes to abortion. 
“The Republican Party overall and Mr. Trump in particular should challenge the Democrats on the extremism of their position, which as he articulated last night means abortion throughout pregnancy.  That’s been the policy for a long time,” Father Frank Pavone, head of Priests for Life, said.
The Catholic leaders at Thursday’s gathering also said pastors and priests need to know it’s completely legal for them to preach about the abortion issue.
“I see pastors wanting to stand up and say, ‘The Church stands for the unborn. The protection of life is the first duty of government. We have to elect public servants who know the difference between serving the public and killing the public,'” Pavone told CBN News.
