Fr. Pavone on New Jersey Abortion Decision: Judges Are Behind the Times


Priests for Life



Staten Island, NY – Commenting on the New Jersey Supreme Court’s decision in Acuna v. Turkish, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated, “This court has placed itself embarrassingly behind the times by failing to hold doctors accountable for telling patients what grade school children already know about when a human life begins.  Moreover, abortionists are tearing arms and legs off of children in the womb, not destroying some unidentified mass of tissue whose species scientists don’t know how to figure out.”

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