Fr. Frank comment on MO fetal pain bill


Priests for Life




Amarillo, TX – Opponents of SB 196, the fetal pain bill pending in the Missouri Senate, would deny compassion to unborn babies about to be aborted said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.

The bill would simply offer women the option of having their unborn children of 20 weeks or older anesthetized before an abortion,” said Fr. Pavone.  “To oppose this bill simply because some scientists aren’t sure whether babies feel pain at 20 weeks or 30 weeks is to exhibit a total lack of concern for tiny humans who are about to have their bodies dismembered.  If you’re not sure whether a baby feels pain, you err on the side of compassion.”
