Amarillo, TX. - Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of the Amarillo-based Priests for Life organization, issued the following statement after the Texas Senate passed Senate Bill 1150, the Parental Consent Act:

"The Senators who voted for this measure did the right thing, and represented well the convictions of most Texans, and indeed most Americans. While abortion supporters often speak about how agonizing the abortion decision is, they defy logic when they seek to exclude parents of minor-age girls from that decision.

"I urge the Texas House to likewise pass this measure speedily, and I urge all Texans to communicate with their representatives today and express their support for the Parental Consent Act."
