Fr. Pavone thanks new House members for their pro-life commitment


TITUSVILLE, FL — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today congratulated the two new members of the House of Representatives and thanked them for their support of H.R. 962, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

“Wisconsin Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-7) and California Rep. Mike Garcia (R-25) were sworn in today and made it one of their first priorities to sign the discharge petition to get the Democrats to bring the Born-Alive bill up for a vote. With their signatures, we are just 13 short of reaching the needed 218 signatures,” Father Pavone said. “I thank them for their commitment to life.”

Both Rep. Tiffany and Rep. Garcia were winners in special elections in their districts, and will face re-election in November. Father Pavone pointed out that Rep. Garcia’s win is particularly important, as it represents the first time Republicans have retaken a Democrat-held seat in the state since 1998.

“This is good news as we look to reclaim the House from the pro-death Democrats who are not even courageous enough to vote on a bill that would save the lives of babies who survive abortion,” Father Pavone said.
