National Priests Group Urges Congress to Act on
Washington, DC – Fr. Frank
Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, urged members of Congress today
to vote for the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act when it comes up for
consideration later this week.
“The laws of this country require
measures to minimize pain in animals that are slaughtered, but offer no pain
relief for unborn children who are dismembered by abortion. By what
standard of human decency do we allow this contradiction?” Fr. Pavone asked.
Priests for Life is the
nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and
euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
