FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, praised the South Carolina Senate for its passage of the Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2006 (S1084).
“It is gratifying to see concern for women and children take priority over politics,” Fr. Pavone pointed out. “Some had feared that protecting the unborn from violence would lead to banning abortion. But that’s tantamount to saying, ‘I don’t want to protect these children if it’s going to lead to protecting others.’”
“I urge the House to likewise pass this common-sense measure, supported by most citizens of South Carolina and of America,” said Fr. Pavone.
