Priests' Group Praises California Ballot Effort on Abortion

San Diego, CA -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented today on the news that the parental notification measure in California has qualified to be on the next election ballot.

"Parents should be informed when their minor-age daughters seek an abortion. Abortion advocates always speak about how agonizing this decision is, yet oppose efforts to bring these agonized young mothers out of their isolation and into the care of their own parents.

"Now it will be up to the California voters to enact this commonsense legislation, already in effect in so many other states and supported by strong majorities of the American public. I call upon pastors to preach vigorously, to conduct voter registration drives, and urge their people to support this measure when it comes time to vote."

Priests for Life has offices in San Diego and a strong outreach throughout California. For more information, see
