National priests' group appalled at outcome of Virginia abortion regulation bill

Washington, DC- Priests for Life, a national anti-abortion organization, said today that the people of Virginia should be fully informed that the Abortion Clinics Regulation and Licensure bill, which would have increased safety measures for women in Virginia’s abortion facilities, has died in committee.

"The same story is repeated across the nation," said Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life. "When commonsense safety measures are proposed for surgical facilities, these measures enjoy support – unless the facility is an abortion clinic. Those who oppose such measures are, ironically, the same people who claim to be 'pro-choice' because they are in favor of women’s health."

"No matter what our views on abortion, we should be united in efforts to make medical clinics safe," Fr. Pavone concluded.
