FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“When a criminal assaults two victims, he should be charged with two crimes,” states Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “Alaska legislators should be applauded for voting to close the legal loophole that allows a pregnant woman’s attacker to commit two crimes for the price of one.”
Fr. Pavone’s remarks are in response to the Alaska House Finance Committee’s approval of a measure to create a separate crime for the assault or killing of an unborn child.
