April 1, 2009

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
