Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life condemns British court, hospital and the silence of the worldwide media
TITUSVILLE, FL — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today condemned a British court and hospital as plans were put in place to end the life of 23-month-old Baby Alfie Evans.
“The Royal Courts of Justice in London has decided on a date and time to end this precious child’s life, but that date and time are not to be released to the public. They hope to accomplish this state-sanctioned murder without anyone noticing. And since the British media and pro-life media in the U.S. are the only outlets covering this tragedy, perhaps the world won’t notice.
“The whole world was watching the Baby Charlie Gard case last year, and in 2011 when a Canadian hospital tried something similar with Baby Joseph Maraachli. Have we reached the limit of our compassion?”
Priests for Life has been working behind the scenes with the family and will continue those efforts, Father Pavone said.
“Where there is life, there’s hope,” he said. “The family and its supporters will keep doing everything they can to protect Alfie’s life from the dictates of a heartless government and health-care system and an indifferent media.”
