Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s order blocking the enforcement of Texas’s law requiring abortion clinics to meet minimum health and safety standards.
“The Supreme Court did not explain its order in the challenge to Texas’s law protecting women’s health. Perhaps that’s because the court’s order is inexplicable. Women’s health is on the line and six justices ruled that abortionists can continue to rake in the cash rather than make their clinics safer for women.
“We know that the abortion lobby is now rejecting the slogan ‘safe, legal, and rare’ because the word ‘rare’ correctly implies that there’s something wrong with abortion. It’s obvious that abortion promoters also don’t like the term ‘safe,’ because making facilities safer for women means less cash in their pockets. Now, thanks to the Supreme Court’s order, Texas abortionists’ bank accounts won’t take a hit – women will.”
