Fr. Pavone urges voters to pay close attention to pro-life bills in the U.S. Senate

TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged voters to pay close attention to two pro-life bills that could advance to a vote later this month.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell this afternoon filed a motion to begin debate on two bills, S. 3275, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and S. 311, the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act.

“Both of these bills are important and necessary to pass to protect our most vulnerable brothers and sisters,” Father Pavone said. “Babies from 20 weeks of development forward would be protected by the Pain-Capable bill. Americans overwhelmingly support legislation to protect unborn children who can feel pain.”

The Born-Alive bill, he noted, offers protection to children who survive abortion.

“The House Judiciary Committee this week held a hearing on the Born-Alive bill and Democrats repeatedly tried to cast it as a bill that would restrict abortion access, but even they know that’s not true,” he said. “What this bill would do is protect babies who survive abortion and are struggling for life. Rather than allowing abortionists to let them die, or worse, cause their deaths, this bill requires life-saving treatment in a hospital for these children, with penalties for abortionists who do not comply.”

Votes to end debate on the two bills are expected the week of Feb. 24. Sixty votes are needed to advance each bill to a floor vote.

“From now until those votes, we have to pray that 60 senators will be able to summon the compassion and strength of character to bring these important bills to a vote,” Father Pavone said.

Noting that 35 Senate seats will be decided in the November elections, Father Pavone said, “Pro-life voters should make sure to let their senators know they will be watching this cloture vote closely.”

Priests for Life (www.EndAbortion.US)  is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion. Pro-life efforts are working. The abortion rate in America is the lowest it has been since Roe v. Wade and in recent years states have passed more than 400 laws to protect the unborn. The number of freestanding abortion clinics in the U.S. has dropped from 2179 in 1991 down to 710 today, and President Trump has placed 187 (and counting) pro-life judges on the federal bench.

sorry typo people
I "cry "in the desert and not I crie in the desert

sorry that I am emotional but I do not believe in the policy of the "prolife" movement,only is truthful
your policy is appeasement,you think by being "nice" you will win the hearts of the wicked,they just laugh at you ,like they laugh a dolan ,that clown from newyork,
when he dies God will laugh at this fool and say,you made a DEAL with the wicked, his "friendship " with cuome,the deal of the bishops with the democrats,the party of death for the money they get for refugees,the price they pay for their silence on the murder of the most innocent
the prolife movement stands nowhere, you have come to the point that even children at 9 months are murdered,not that it makes a difference to God what "age" they are,it is murder,plain and simple,but one might think at least the proabortion crowd will recognise that a child at this age is a "real" child, no,they do not see it as a real child
which is ridiculous because a child born the normal way can not survive without help from his mother or others, it would die without nourishment, protective measures,warmth etc
so perhaps they will also say,this "child" is not a child ,we can still kill him because he does not have a google or twitter account,
wakeup priestsforlife

one other website is very correct in their thinking
they say it as it is,
yes the only good abortionist is a dead abortionist
pavone,if you fought in the war against hitler,would it be "murder" if you could save innocent jews by killing the monsters that took them to the deathcamps, NO,it is self defence
think about that
self defence is allright with the bible, it is not ideal but it is not murder
you will never make a deal with the pro abortion crowd,instead they will in the end KILL YOU

thank you for listening,
I am a cry in the desert,listen to it
I paid a heavy financial price opposing abortion,it ruined me but I remained loyal to my faith in Jesus, I did not betray him for a deal with the world
you priestsforlife and many others,you live in dreamworld,even thinking that "prolife" trump will change anything or the supreme court,they are traitors of God and will not change anything about roevwade

you catholics have come SO far !!! that you are begging for the life of these poor born creatures, and still even that they do not grant you
you have already "accepted" that they murder all these children anywhere between 0 and 9 months, and you have taken the miserable and immoral road of incrementalism,which is evil and selfdestructive
for yes the wicked will say, see,you have "agreed" to 3 months, 4 months, 5 months and so on
no,you should have stopped at zero ,no abortions unless the inevitable for truly medicall saving the mother,in ectopic pregnancy,but that is not wicked abortion but making the best of inevitable pathology that can as yet not be cured
and on top of that, again I say,the madness priestsforlife believes,that hypocritical trump appointed "prolife" judges, he did NOT
listen to what they themselfes say,no I will not touch roevwade if appointed,they are all traitors, they are NOT prolife at all
that is very wrong priestsforlife,you should know better
trump changes his views on abortion as the wind blows, he will again if he loses the elections
read full details on
they are the only truly prolife website that tells the blunt truth,the prolife movement does not want to abolish abortion,they want to regulate it and fool the masses, the "prolife" movement is getting as dishonest as the proabortion crowd, neonazis without soul,without truth and void of anything that belongs to God
