Fr. Pavone praises courageous victim of botched "abortion"

New York City- Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today praising the courage of a victim of botched "abortion." Melanie Mills revealed her story on a radio station in St. Louis, Missouri, which was met with a lawsuit from abortionist Yogendra Shaw from the Hope Clinic in Granite City, IL. Ms. Mills had not been given a pregnancy test prior to the abortion, only later to realize she was never pregnant; she was suffering from a blighted ovum.

Said Fr. Pavone: "Thank God for the willingness of Melanie Mills to uncover what we know are two common abuses: abortionists doing abortions on people who are not pregnant, and abortionists intimidating women into silence about the malpractice that occurs in legal abortion clinics. We call on women's rights groups to denounce abortionists who exploit women in this way."

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