Fr. Pavone congratulates Ohio pro-life activists and lawmakers for Heartbeat Bill

Priests for Life

April 11, 2019

TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today congratulated the pro-life activists and lawmakers in Ohio as Gov. Mike DeWine signed a bill that protects babies from abortion once a heartbeat can be detected.

“Protecting the youngest children is the direction our country needs to go; it is part of America’s greatness. I am grateful Gov. DeWine signed the bill that so many in Ohio have worked so hard to pass.

“It is my fervent hope that the courts, when faced with the question of the constitutionality of this law, will begin to realize that our jurisprudence has to catch up with our science. Abortion stops a beating heart. The only way to judge that action justly is to stop it.”

Father Pavone also praised Ohio legislators for passing a bill urging the U.S. Congress to vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and for a bill that calls for the burial or cremation of fetal remains. That bill has passed the Senate and is under review in the House.

“Ohio also protects babies from 20 weeks and beyond from abortion, and protects them from the brutal procedures of dismemberment abortion,” Father Pavone said. “This is the direction every state should be taking as well, and for those places where there is not yet the legislative support to pass Heartbeat legislation, we can and must all get behind the efforts to protect all the babies we are able to protect at this point in time.”
