TITUSVILLE, FL - Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today called on North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper to protect newborns in his state by signing the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

“Gov. Cooper has an opportunity to demonstrate real leadership by signing this bill,” Father Pavone said. “This bill does not in any way impact a mother’s access to abortion nor does it in any way penalize mothers. But it does ensure that if a child survives an abortionist’s attempt on his or her life, that this now newborn child be given every fighting chance to live and thrive. This is a compassionate bill that recognizes the human rights of that child.”

The North Carolina legislature this week passed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act by a 65-46 vote in the House of Representatives and a 28-19 vote in the Senate.

“Of course, in this situation, the real drawback for these babies in North Carolina is that Gov. Roy Cooper is a Democrat. Sad to say, that Party, and all but a handful of its public officials, has utterly failed in the most basic duty of government – the protection of the God-given right to life. The Democrat party has never met an abortion it doesn’t like, and has also proven itself the Party of Infanticide. Let’s see if Gov. Cooper does the right thing, or instead toes the party’s bloody line,” Fr. Pavone concluded.

Priests for Life is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion. For more information, visit www.EndAbortion.US.
