South Dakota Bill Highlights the Gap between Abortion Rhetoric and Reality Says Fr. Frank Pavone

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today that both backers and opponents of Roe v. Wade should support SB 92, a bill that would require a doctor to be available for an in-person consultation one day prior to performing an abortion.

“Backers of Roe v. Wade frequently talk about abortion as a decision between a woman and her physician,” said Fr.Pavone, “but the abortionist and the woman are strangers. Her physician is not involved. There’s a gap between the rhetoric and the reality of what happens in an abortion clinic. SB 92 simply highlights the enormity of that gap.”

SB 92 will be voted upon Wednesday by the South Dakota state Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

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