.- A new measure in California, which would require parents of a minor to be notified before an abortion is performed, has the support of a NewYork-based national pro-life organization.
Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, said he and his organization support Proposition 73, the Parental Notification Act, which will be put to the ballot Nov. 8.
He committed Priests for Life in assisting California residents to understand the measure and its impact.
“We will communicate with Churches, send our speakers into the state to rally voters, and communicate with the media,” he said.
“Our extensive experience with those who have had abortions shows that when someone has an abortion, it affects the whole family,” he commented. “The Parental Notification Act will protect parents' right to know not only what will happen to their daughter, but what will happen to them.”
