Fr. Pavone Praises Oklahoma House Committee's Vote Against Sex Selection Abortion

STATEN ISLAND, NY, Feb. 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised the Oklahoma House Public Health Committee for voting 20-2 to ban sex selection abortions.

"Sex selection abortion may seem unthinkable, but it now happens in the U.S. In fact, if the argument of abortion proponents is 'choice,' then how can they argue against this practice if that's what someone chooses?" Fr. Pavone asked. "I hope abortion proponents stay consistent with their position so that America can see how extreme they are."

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