Fr. Pavone Praises Enactment of State Partial
Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National
Director of Priests for Life, today praised Gov. Kathleen Blanco and the
Louisiana legislature for enacting the nation’s first state ban on partial-birth
abortion since the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a similar federal prohibition.
“Louisiana is leading the way in what every state
needs to do,” said Fr. Pavone. “The violence of partial-birth abortion,
moreover, is reflected in every abortion. We pray and work for the day
when our final goal will be reached, the protection of every unborn child.”
Priests for Life is the nation's largest
Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For
