STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today following the enactment of a ban on abortions past 12 weeks in Arkansas.
“The Arkansas Legislature has done the right thing. Governors aren’t governing their people if they aren’t protecting them. One of the most striking and effective statements over the years by the pro-life movement has been ‘Abortion stops a beating heart.’ It’s still true, and it’s about time the law starts catching up with that fact.”
Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
