Abortion Bill Denies Parents’ Rights Says National Priests Leader

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                            

Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today said that a bill that would repeal Illinois’s parental notification for abortion law and instead allow other family members or a clergyman to be notified prior to a minor’s abortion would deny parents their right to raise their children.

“HB 317 would allow a teenage girl to get an abortion if she brought the abortionist a note from her 18-year-old brother,” said Fr. Pavone.  “It turns the notion of parental notification into a sham.  It’s time that the abortion lobby stop demonizing parents and allow mothers and fathers the right to raise their own children.”
