Priests for Life Applauds Passage of Unborn Victims of Violence Act in Senate

Priests for Life National Director Fr. Frank Pavone released the following statement this morning in response to the US Senate's action yesterday in passing the Unborn Victims of Violence Act:

"This victory is another sign that our legal system is experiencing a new moment of awareness in regard to the unborn child. Our history has been marked with such moments regarding civil rights, the rights of workers, the rights of women, and the rights of children. Now we are reaching the "embryonic moment," reflected in medicine (with fetal surgery and new imaging techniques), in popular opinion (with polls showing more people calling themselves pro-life), and in law (with more recognition given to the status of the unborn child.)

"We are grateful to have a President who will sign this legislation. The recognition of the unborn child as a second victim of violent federal crimes will increase the cognitive dissonance created by the fact that abortion permits the destruction of the very same child. Day by day our culture is being forced to face this contradiction, and day by day it is being resolved in favor of the unborn. Our votes this November will help resolve it further."
