Fr. Pavone Criticizes Minnesota Governor’s Veto of Bi-partisan Pro-life Legislation


Priests for Life


TITUSVILLE, FL – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today decried Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton’s veto of bipartisan legislation that would have allowed a woman the opportunity to view an ultrasound image of her unborn baby prior to an abortion.
“Governor Dayton’s indefensible action is but the latest example of why this November’s elections are so vitally important,” said Fr. Pavone.  “One pro-abortion governor can undo the good work of pro-life legislators and the will of the people by bowing to the demands of the abortion industry.  With more than two-thirds of the states electing governors this fall, it’s essential that pro-life voters go to the polls and vote for officials who know the difference between serving the public and killing the public.”
Governor Dayton (D), who is term-limited and cannot seek re-election this year, vetoed a bill that would have given a woman, as part of her informed consent for abortion, the choice of viewing an ultrasound of her child prior to the procedure if an ultrasound was already going to be performed.  
“This legislation would not have forced a woman to do anything she did not want to do,” added Fr. Pavone.  “It merely would have kept an abortionist from hiding from a mother the child about to be killed.  Governor Dayton is doing the work of the abortion industry by hiding who the unborn child is and what abortion does to that child. And keeping those realities in the shadows is the main reason the violence of abortion continues.” 
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
