Amarillo, TX- Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, an Amarillo based anti-abortion organization, issued the following statement thanking Gov. Rick Perry for signing parental consent legislation.

"Gov. Perry has recognized the important role of parents in the decisions of their minor children -- especially when those "decisions" are pressured by others, as abortion usually is. This new law will help parents, and will also save the lives of unborn children and protect their families from the lifetime of regret that abortion brings. Thank you, Governor Perry."

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic organization dedicated exclusively to the defense of human life from abortion and euthanasia. For more information about Priests for Life, please visit
