TITUSVILLE, FL --- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today after learning that a federal judge has blocked enforcement of an Alabama law that would have protected most babies from abortion.
“This is not at all surprising, and in fact it’s par for the course,” Father Pavone said. “District Judge Myron Thompson, a Carter nominee, could have allowed the law to be enacted on schedule on Nov. 15 and let the legal challenges proceed. That would have saved lives. He decided, instead, to let abortionists continue to slaughter babies in Alabama.
“Every time a federal judge blocks an abortion law, Americans are reminded about the importance of having a pro-life president in the White House – for two terms – and a pro-life Senate. When all of President Trump’s judicial nominees are seated, it will no longer be par for the course for life-saving laws to be blocked. We look forward to that day.”
