Fr. Pavone Urges Enactment of Oklahoma's Sex Selection Abortion Ban

Priests for Life


Staten Island, NY - Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged Governor Brad Henry to sign into law HB 1595, the bill to bar abortions performed solely because of a baby's sex.

"Aborting a baby because she's a girl or he's a boy is offensive on so many levels, it's hard to imagine anyone trying to justify the practice," said Fr. Pavone. 

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