National Pro-Life Priest Confident that Court will Uphold Ban on Partial-Birth Abortion

WASHINGTON, Feb. 21 /Christian Wire Service/ -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, made the following comments on the Supreme Court's acceptance of the partial birth abortion case.

"We expected that the Supreme Court would again review the question of whether states can protect the lives of children who are mostly delivered from their mothers' wombs but are still in danger of being killed by a procedure that thrusts scissors into the child's head. We also expect that the Court will respect the rights of states to prevent this procedure, as most of them have attempted to do, and the rights of the people to govern themselves on this matter through their elected officials.

If pro-abortion groups want to continue to maintain that partial-birth abortion is required by Roe vs. Wade, they will simply be reinforcing our efforts to educate people on how extreme Roe vs. Wade really is. Let them go right ahead and do so."

Priests for Life has been involved in the effort to expose the reality of partial-birth abortion since 1994, and will continue to vigorously work for the protection of unborn and partially-born children against all forms of abortion.

Priests for Life is one of the largest pro-life organizations in the world, and works to equip all believers to end abortion and euthanasia.
