The Georgia Senate must be applauded for approving three bills related to pre-born children, said Fr. Frank Pavone.
"The first job of legislators is to protect the lives of those they represent,” said the national director of Priests for Life.
The Unborn Victims of Violence Act passed by the Senate means the death of any child at any stage of pregnancy would result in a homicide charge for the mother's attacker, Fr. Pavone explained.
The second bill allows pharmacists who file objections in advance not to be forced to dispense drugs that induce abortions. The third bill requires an abortionist to make a sonogram image of a mother's unborn baby and show the image to the woman prior to an abortion.
