Washington, DC- Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today applauding the Michigan state House for passing the measure which would require that a doctor offer ultrasound to a woman seeking an abortion.

"It is only logical that a woman considering abortion be told not only factual information about this medical procedure, but also factual information about the development of her unborn child," said Fr. Frank Pavone. "Upon seeing the image of their children on a screen, most women will no longer desire this horrific death for their children. And as for those who promote a "right to choose," why not let women know more about what they are choosing?"
