Fr. Pavone on Parental Notification: Translate Views into Votes

STATEN ISLAND, Ny., July 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- Responding to a new poll showing that California voters support a parental notification for abortion initiative, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated, "This support for parental notification, which is consistent with attitudes of Americans nationwide, now has to be translated into votes this Fall. At the end of the day on Election Day, it is not opinions that are counted, but actual votes. Priests for Life urges Churches, organizations, and individual citizens to foster registration and get out the vote drives."

The parental notification measure, known as "Sarah's Law," will appear as Proposition 4 on California's November ballot.
