Priests for Life supports ban on gender-specific abortion

Washington, DC -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today issued a statement in favor of the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), which is expected to be voted on in the House of Representatives this evening. 


The measure would outlaw any abortion performed because of the gender of a baby.


“This is one of those measures that drives home the point that abortions in America can be performed for any reason whatsoever. People often react in horrified unbelief that there even is such a thing as sex-selection abortion. But the existence of legislation to stop it can awaken the consciences of many. Let's pass this law, and let's use the vote of our Representatives on this bill as an election issue," Fr. Pavone said.


It is estimated that 163 million women are “missing” because of sex-selective abortion around the globe.



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