Fr. Pavone Praises Enactment of State Partial Birth-Abortion


Priests for Life


Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised Gov. Kathleen Blanco and the Louisiana legislature for enacting the nation’s first state ban on partial-birth abortion since the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a similar federal prohibition.

“Louisiana is leading the way in what every state needs to do,” said Fr. Pavone.  “The violence of partial-birth abortion, moreover, is reflected in every abortion.  We pray and work for the day when our final goal will be reached, the protection of every unborn child.”

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