Fr. Pavone Commends LA Committee vote on fetal pain


Priests for Life



“If an unborn baby is anesthetized before surgery, shouldn’t he be anesthetized before dismemberment?” asks Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.  “Louisiana legislators are to be commended for taking action on fetal pain legislation.”

Fr. Pavone’s remarks are in response to passage by the Louisiana House’s Health and Welfare Committee of a bill to ensure that women seeking to abort pregnancies of 20 weeks gestation or more are offered the option of having their unborn babies anesthetized.  The measure now goes to the full House for consideration.

“We have laws in this nation that regulate the slaughter of animals, so that it is done in a humane and painless way, yet children are slaughtered without a thought of their pain.  Of course, children should not be slaughtered at all, and this legislation will also help us face that fact,” Fr. Pavone concluded.

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