Fr. Pavone Praises Tennessee Governor Haslam for Signing New Protections for Unborn

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam for signing a new law that will save late-term babies from abortion.  The measure protects almost all unborn children from abortion when those children are deemed able to survive outside the womb.

“The Tennessee Infants Protection Act does what the title says.  It will protect unborn babies who are able to live outside the womb,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Governor Haslam has taken an important step toward safeguarding children’s lives.”

The measure, Senate Bill 1180, would require doctors to determine if a child is viable, that is, able to survive outside the womb, before performing an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.  If the baby is determined to be viable, he or she could only be killed in cases of medical emergency or great physical harm to the mother.  Abortion supporters said the legislation interferes with a “deeply personal” decision.

“Killing any child is ‘deeply personal’ to the baby involved, as well as the mother,” added Fr. Pavone.  “Whether your life is allowed to continue is about as deeply personal a matter as there is.  Tennessee’s governor and legislature are to be commended for considering and protecting the most vulnerable members of our society, the unborn.”

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