Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented today on a new survey published in the Journal of Medical Ethics showing that women considering abortion want to know all the possible complications before undergoing the procedure.  The study found that 95 percent of women want to be informed of not just physical risks, but mental and emotional ones as well.


“These findings are consistent with the pastoral experience of our priests across the nation,” Fr. Pavone said.  “Of course, abortionists don’t want inconvenient truths standing in the way of their profits.  It’s ironic that some who claim to support choice don’t support the right of women to know what they’re choosing.”


Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
