Priests for Life Comments on Possible Mississippi Abortion Ban
Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests
for Life, commented on a possible move by lawmakers in Mississippi to pass a
bill banning abortion.
“We are all aware of the fact that some disagree about the
timing of such bills. But when the people and lawmakers of a state want to
protect their own children, and have been prevented from doing so for over three
decades, perhaps the only way to regain that right is to force the issue. The
courts are not the only ones who interpret and defend the Constitution. Elected
lawmakers are sworn to do so as well. When they carry out that duty by defending
life, they deserve our full support,” Fr. Pavone said.
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization
dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
