Fr. Pavone Decries Judge's Order Against Pro-Life Activist Rev. Walter Hoye

STATEN ISLAND, NY, Feb. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented today on the unjust sentencing of Oakland, CA pro-life activist Rev. Walter Hoye as follows:

"Rev. Hoye is correct in stating his refusal to obey an order to stay away from the killing center. He is not going there simply to express beliefs, but rather to stop bloodshed. No law can tell us not to save lives. When Rev. Hoye is standing at that abortion mill, obeying God rather than men, he should not be surprised if he sees me standing there right next to him," Fr. Pavone concluded.

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro- life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
