Fr. Pavone Decries Ruling in Alabama Parental Consent for Abortion Case

Priests for Life

August 02, 2017
   
 

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today criticized a federal judge’s ruling that struck down portions of Alabama’s parental consent for abortion law.

“Alabama recognizes that when a minor seeks a court waiver to have an abortion without her parents’ knowledge or consent, the interests of the baby about to be killed deserve consideration as well,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Tragically, a federal judge sides with the abortion industry in treating the baby about to be killed as nothing.”

Federal Magistrate Judge Susan Russ Walker has ruled against Alabama’s law that allows a judge to appoint representation for an unborn child in a proceeding to determine whether a minor may abort that baby without her parents’ consent.  She held that the requirements of the statute create an undue burden on the minor’s “right to an anonymous judicial bypass hearing."

“The judge talks about a minor’s right to remain anonymous, but what about the unborn boy or girl’s right to be acknowledged?” asks Fr. Pavone.  “One day our law will catch up with what science informs us and what our eyes plainly see – that the child in the womb deserves as much recognition and protection as any other human being.”

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.
