National Priests' Group Urges Congress To Act On Fetal Pain

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                            

Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, urged members of Congress today to vote for the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act when it comes up for consideration later this week.

“The laws of this country require measures to minimize pain in animals that are slaughtered, but offer no pain relief for unborn children who are dismembered by abortion.  By what standard of human decency do we allow this contradiction?” Fr. Pavone asked.

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