NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin to sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act just passed by the state legislature.

“Governor Tomblin claims to be pro-life, yet vetoed an earlier bill that would have protected unborn babies of six months and older from the agony of being torn limb from limb,” said Fr. Pavone.  “He now has a second chance to show he knows the difference between serving the public and killing the public.  I pray he takes it.”

The West Virginia legislature has passed legislation that would protect almost all babies after 20 weeks of pregnancy from being aborted.  The measure is based on scientific findings that such babies can feel pain.

“It all depends on whom Governor Tomblin wants to protect – innocent babies or, as he chose last year, the abortion industry that makes its money from killing them,” added Fr. Pavone.
