TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today thanked South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem for introducing legislation to protect babies with Down syndrome from abortion.

“Gov. Noem understands that every life is sacred and that babies with Down syndrome are a real blessing to their families and their communities,” Father Pavone said. “When we hear of nations like Iceland boasting that they have ‘eradicated’ Down syndrome, what they really mean is that they have killed all of these precious children. That is a tragedy.

“The people of South Dakota should be proud to have a governor who understands that the protection of life must be unconditional and non-discriminatory.”


Priests for Life (EndAbortion.US) is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion.
