Priests' Organization Comments on Moral Aspects of Fetal Pain

Washington, DC -- "The disputed report coming out of the University of California, indicating that pain may not be felt by unborn children during abortions in early pregnancy, hardly settles the matter scientifically," said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. "Other studies over the last 15 years around the world show evidence of earlier fetal pain. Research has to continue. Meanwhile, it makes sense to err on the side of caution."

Fr. Pavone also pointed out that while the possibility of pain should give us pause regarding abortion, the absence of pain does not justify killing unborn children. "There are many painless ways to kill both born and unborn. That doesn't make it right."

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
