Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised the Senate’s confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General of the United States.

“Finally, Americans have an Attorney General who believes that no one is above the law,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Whereas the previous administration looked the other way when the multiple crimes of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry were exposed, including the sale of aborted baby body parts, pro-lifers are confident that Attorney General Sessions will prosecute those who violate federal laws.”

After several delays by Senate Democrats, Senator Sessions was confirmed late Wednesday on a 52 to 47 vote. 

“Senator Sessions has been a stalwart defender of babies in the womb,” added Fr. Pavone.  “Attorney General Sessions will be a friend to the cause of life as the nation’s chief law enforcer.”
