Atlanta, GA – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, together
with Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr., today called for passage of the recently re-introduced
Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act.
“Sex selection abortions are a reality in the United States,” said Dr. King.
“And last year we saw that Planned Parenthood was willing to accept donations
earmarked for the abortion of only African American babies. While few doctors
would admit that they perform abortions because they or babies’ parents are
motivated by sexual or racial prejudice, the reality is that such abortions
occur. These womb lynchings must stop.”
Fr. Pavone added, “It would be difficult for abortion advocates to oppose this
legislation without revealing that their loyalty is not with the woman seeking
an abortion, but with the abortion industry that profits in the process. It will
be fascinating to hear the verbal gymnastics that our President will have to
employ in opposing such a bill.”
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization
dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
