Fr. Frank Pavone Praises Arkansas State House for Action Against Partial-Birth Abortions

STATEN ISLAND, NY, Feb. 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today applauded the Arkansas House of Representatives for overwhelmingly passing a state ban on partial-birth abortions.

"The 84-6 vote by the Arkansas House to outlaw partial-birth abortions reflects the public's revulsion against a procedure that is unjustifiable on any level," said Fr. Pavone. "Unfortunately, our new President does not share that revulsion. I hope other state legislatures will follow Arkansas' example."

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro- life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
