For Immediate Release
Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today that this morning’s Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling lifting an injunction against South Dakota’s informed consent for abortion law is a victory for basic truth.
“The court held that the law’s requirement that a woman be told that an abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being ‘generates little dispute,’” said Fr. Pavone. “Many within the abortion industry have actually admitted this for a long time. It’s good that the courts are catching up.”
“In my work as National Pastoral Director of Rachel’s Vineyard, the world’s largest ministry of healing after abortion, I meet so many women who wish someone had repeated this basic fact to them before they had their abortion. A key aspect of women’s rights is the right to know the truth about abortion.”
