Fr. Pavone Praises WV Legislature for Enacting Protection for Pain-Capable Babies; Urges Congress to Follow Suit

NEW YORK, NY -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today hailed the West Virginia legislature for overriding Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s veto of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

“West Virginia’s lawmakers have stood up in defense of the ‘least of these,’ the unborn,” said Fr. Pavone.  “It’s a mark of statesmanship to protect those who can’t vote for you, can’t donate to your campaign, and can’t even speak for themselves.”

The West Virginia House and Senate each voted to override the governor’s veto of a bill that provides protection for unborn babies older than five months.  This is the first time since 1987 that the West Virginia legislature has successfully overridden a governor’s veto.

“State lawmakers across the country have shown selflessness and political courage to pass laws protecting babies who can feel pain,” added Fr. Pavone.  “Priests for Life will continue to work in union with state and national pro-life groups to see that similar legislation is passed in other states and in Congress.”
