Amarillo, TX priest commends governor for
signing parental consent legislation
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."
