Priests for Life Calls on Senators to Support Pro-life Bill

NEW YORK, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, welcomed the news that later this week, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will introduce a bill to protect children from abortion starting at 20-weeks of fetal age ("22 weeks of pregnancy" by the LMP measurement). He also described some of the things Priests for Life will do to support that bill.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has already been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, and has been enacted in 10 states. This legislation identifies the child's ability to feel pain as the relevant state interest in protecting that child from dismemberment by abortion.

"We at Priests for Life have been sounding the alarm about the pain of the child, and the need to end late-term abortion, for the past two decades," Fr. Pavone pointed out. "And for many years we've been distributing the diagram that shows what the dismemberment procedure looks like.

"We will make sure that every Senate office in Washington is given these diagrams," Fr. Pavone explained. "Moreover, we will urge Senators to become co-sponsors of this bill, will demand action by Senate leadership to allow a vote, and will urge our grassroots supporters to communicate with their Senators.

"We are also asking the public to join us in asking each Senator publicly whether he or she thinks that dismemberment of a child in the final months of pregnancy should be allowed. This project will put each Senator on record whether there is ultimately a vote in the Senate or not. People can indicate that they want to know their Senators' answer to this question at Priestsforlife.org/AskWashington. Then, we will let the Senators know that these people from their own state are joining us in asking that question. Finally, we will publicize their answer -- or lack thereof," Fr. Pavone explained.

"Some Senators, of course, will be running for re-election in 2014. If they are not already thinking about fetal pain, they might be forced to do so by considering electoral pain as well," Fr. Pavone concluded.

Are the documents copy writed on this website? Is it possible to copy them and use them to educate members within the Catholic Church? God Bless you for all your work.
