Fr. Frank Pavone Decries Erroneous Decision on Indiana Abortion Law


Priests for Life



NEW YORK  – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today criticized federal Judge Tanya Walton Pratt’s decision to enjoin Indiana’s law protecting babies of more than 20 weeks’ gestation from abortion solely because of their race, sex, or disability.  Also struck down was the state’s provision requiring the remains of aborted babies to be treated the same as those of other humans.

“This decision implies that protecting abortion is more important than stopping discrimination based on race, sex, or disability,” said Fr. Pavone.  “As we saw with the Supreme Court recently, judges bent on defending abortion, of necessity, turn justice on its head.”

Indiana’s law was adopted earlier this year, but was challenged by Planned Parenthood.  The abortion business complained that requiring it to cremate the bodies of aborted babies would cost too much money.  Judge Pratt sided with Planned Parenthood, holding that Indiana has “no legitimate state interest in treating an aborted fetus the same as a deceased human.”

“Abortion has so perverted our language and our law that a judge cannot recognize that an aborted baby in fact is a ‘deceased human,’” added Fr. Pavone.  “It speaks to the very nature of the pro-abortion mindset that anyone could consign children to be treated as medical waste, as Judge Pratt has done.”

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

I'm on your side Fr. You are truly sending God's message. When is enough, enough? Someday the truth will be in the light, and God will conquer all evil. Please keep the message of Jesus ever present in your ministry.
