NEW YORK, NY — Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today regarding a ruling from a panel of the federal appeals court that will keep Mississippi’s only abortion clinic open, at least temporarily.
“A law enacted to safeguard the health of Mississippi women is being kept on hold not because it is a bad law, but because the abortionists at Jackson Women’s Health Center are such bad doctors that they can’t get a hospital to agree to give them admitting privileges. The panel that said the law is probably unconstitutional either did not know the facts about the caliber of doctors who kill babies for a living, or they didn’t care. In the minds of pro-aborts and judges sympathetic to their cause, access to abortion is more important than any other consideration, including women’s safety.”
Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, said: “The appeals court panel is so concerned about access to abortion that they will just look the other way as abortions are botched and women are harmed.”
