Prolife Leader Frank Pavone, National Director of the Titusville-based Priests for Life, issued the following statement today:

“The first thing I will do on the morning of Wednesday, May 1 will be to kiss the ground in Florida. With the Heartbeat Protection Act going into effect, Florida is now safer for unborn children than at any time in the last 50 years.

“Talk about extreme. Fortunately, we will defeat those who are trying to destroy the women and children of this state.”
