  Washington, DC- Priests for Life, a national anti-abortion organization, stated today, "We are gratified that the Senate discarded the Schumer Amendment from the bankruptcy reform bill," said Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life. "Not only would it be wrong to deny the option of bankruptcy to those who violate the FACE (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) law, but it is time for that law itself to be revoked. There are already laws in place to punish those who do violence and those who trespass. But FACE unduly punishes those who intervene peacefully to save lives, and that's wrong."
