Gov. Granholm Should Rise Above Politics and Sign Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Says National Priest Leader

Staten Island, NY – Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm should ignore abortion industry extremists and sign the partial-birth abortion ban passed by the Michigan legislature Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today.

“There has been a longstanding dispute over Governor Granholm’s conflicting claims to be Catholic and also supportive of the ‘right to choose’ abortion,” Fr. Pavone said. “If she vetoes this bill, that dispute will only intensify. But signing it is no imposition of Catholic doctrine. It’s just that the Catholic Church teaches that its members aren’t allowed to tolerate child-killing. It’s not so much about Catholic doctrine as it is about human decency.”

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