STATEN ISLAND, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today congratulated the Alabama Supreme Court for its decision declaring that the term “child” in a state law includes the unborn.

“The Alabama Supreme Court has given us a decision that is almost unique – it uses common sense and logical consistency when talking about unborn children,” said Fr. Pavone.  “In ruling that a child is a child whether born or unborn, the Alabama justices have cut through decades of tortured, twisted rationales and issued a national call for courts to recognize the obvious – all humans have the right to life.”

The Alabama Supreme Court held that a state statute prohibiting a child from being exposed to drugs or drug paraphernalia applied to both born and unborn children.  The case had been brought by a woman who took illegal substances while pregnant and pleaded guilty to the chemical endangerment of a child.  She argued that the statute only applied to a child who had been born.

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