UPDATE (02/14/24): Prof. Mariana Mazzucato has told LifeSiteNews that she finds it “very sad that we go backwards instead of forwards” when asked about her membership of the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV) in light of her atheistic, pro-abortion beliefs.

We must redouble our calls her removal TODAY

SIGN: Pope Francis must remove Mazzucato from the PAV - the unborn deserve champions of life, not death! 

Speaking at a press conference on the sidelines of the Pontifical Academy for Life’s (PAV) current assembly, economist and World Economic Forum contributor Mariana Mazzucato responded to LifeSite’s question regarding her hotly debated presence as a member of the PAV.

“I find it very sad that we go backwards instead of forwards. I’m an academic, economist, never written an op-ed, blog, journal article or a book that has had even the word abortion or religion in it,” Mazzucato said in response to this reporter’s question about how she sees her role in the PAV, given her self-professed atheism and support for abortion.

She continued, taking issue with LifeSite for highlighting her public actions on the topics mentioned:

I once retweeted a comic who I thought did a very good job in just raising hypocrisy around some of these issues, and the fact that a retweet in an academic conference like this is highlighted by a journalist who should be interacting with what we’ve just said and what our expertise is and what we will be talking about in this conference – I’ll just say I find that sad.

Nominated by Pope Francis as an “ordinary academic” of the PAV in October 2022, Mazzucato’s presence sparked outrage amongst Catholics, who strongly criticized the move as yet more evidence of the PAV’s having “abandoned its purpose.”

Mazzucato's dismissive answer to LifeSiteNews' Michael Haynes over the weekend in Rome, sidelining the issue of abortion while attempting to portray herself as a humanitarian, has once again served to remind Catholics of her clear unsuitability for membership of the PAV.

Please SIGN & SHARE this petition before we send it to the Vatican for Pope Francis' urgent attention. 

As reported on LifeSiteNews, Pope Francis has appointed outspoken pro-abortion economist Mariana Mazzucato to be one of the new “Ordinary Academicians” for the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV). 

In addition to being a speaker at the World Economic Forum – the globalist group behind the socialist, anti-Christian “Great Reset” agenda – Mazzucato is enthusiastically pro-abortion, in direct contradiction to unchangeable teaching of the Catholic Church! 

SIGN: Pope Francis must remove Mazzucato from the PAV - the unborn deserve champions of life, not death! 

Mazzucato’s appointment contradicts the PAV’s statutes. While the statutes say that members can be of any religion, new Academicians must “commit themselves to promoting and defending the principles regarding the value of life and the dignity of the human person, interpreted in a way consonant with the Church’s Magisterium.”  

Mazzucato’s appointment was defended not only by the PAV, but by Francis himself. In an interview on Sunday, November 6th, the Pope confirmed that he had personally picked the pro-abortion economist as an addition to institution: “And now I have put Marianna Mazzucato in the Pontifical Academy for Life. She is a great economist from the United States. I put her there to give a little more humanity to it.”  

Pope Francis’ appointment of one who is so radically against the precepts of the Church causes nothing but confusion for the Faithful – this is a source of scandal. 

SIGN: Pope Francis must remove Mazzucato from the PAV - this scandal in the Church must stop! 

In a time where leftist elites are continually attacking Christian values, we need strong pro-life and pro-family warriors to champion Catholic values in the public square. Mazzucato is NOT the person who should be on the PAV. 

The Pope and the PAV think they can corrupt Catholic values with the excuse of giving the Church “a little more humanity.” The Catholic Church’s teaching on abortion is a non-negotiable issue – abortion disregards the sanctity of human life and the Pope know that this is an intrinsic evil.  

Don’t let Francis and the PAV get away with this! We must take a stand to ensure this attack on the Catholic faith comes to an end.   

ADD YOUR NAME to the growing list of REAL pro-life and pro-family warriors – tell Pope Francis to take back his nomination of radical pro-abortion Mazzucato to the Pontifical Academy for Life!
