Fr. Pavone Praises Michigan House For Protecting Women From Abortion Coercion


Priests for Life



The Michigan House of Representatives recently passed a series of bills that would bar coercing or intimidating a woman into having an abortion.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, stated, “Coercion to abort is far more common than most of us realize.  Abortion is not about freedom of choice, but about feeling one has no freedom and no choice.

“Some claim that banning abortion can lead to forced abortion.  In reality, telling someone she has a right to get an abortion is what opens the door to telling her that she must.”

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