FR. PAVONE: MICHIGAN BILL WOULD INSURE FREEDOM OF
CONSCIENCE FOR INSURANCE PROVIDERS
“A person’s religious freedom doesn’t end when he opens the door to his
business,” states Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.
“Michigan’s representatives have taken an important step toward guaranteeing
freedom of conscience for those providing health insurance in that state.”
Fr. Pavone’s statement follows the passage by the Michigan House of
Representatives of measures that would allow a health maintenance organization
or health insurer to refuse to cover abortion or other procedures.
“It is ironic that for some supporters of abortion, there are certain
arenas where ‘freedom of choice’ definitely does not belong,” notes Fr. Pavone.
“I’m glad that Michigan legislators are wiser.”
