Michigan Legislature Must Correct Governor’s Failure Says National Priest Leader

For Immediate Release

Date: June 12, 2008

Staten Island, NY – With the announcement today that Gov. Jennifer Granholm will veto Michigan’s partial-birth abortion ban bill, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has called upon the state legislature to override the Governor’s action.

“The first purpose of government is the protection of human life. This promised veto contradicts that purpose,” Fr. Pavone stated. “Moreover, it contradicts the responsibility the law has to preserve the proper role of the physician. When the delivery process is used as a vehicle of killing, it is no longer clear whether a doctor is an instrument of life or of death. Michigan legislators have the opportunity to correct this mistake, and I urge them to do so.”

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