Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced that the US Supreme Court has accepted the Priests for Life case against HHS mandate to be heard on March 23rd, with a decision expected in June. The oral arguments in this case, with which six other cases have been consolidated, will be heard, March 23, when there will also be a rally outside the court. The consolidated case is called Zubik vs. Burwell.
"This is a great day in our battle for religious freedom against the culture of death, which wants us to participate in the spread of abortion. We will not do so, and we look forward to making our case at the Supreme Court," Fr. Pavone said.
In the Priests for Life case, plaintiffs included, along with the organization, the following people in their individual capacity: Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life and Co-Founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and Dr. Alveda King, Director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
