If Pro-Choicers Want to Reduce Abortions, They Should Support Waiting Period Says Fr. Pavone

February 17, 2009

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today that a bill to extend South Carolina’s waiting period prior to an abortion from 60 minutes to 24 hours could only help fulfill a goal sought by President Obama and other so called “pro-choicers.”

“Do I hope that increasing South Carolina’s waiting period from one hour to one day results in fewer abortions? Of course,” said Fr. Pavone. “What I don’t understand is why pro-choice people, who always say they want to reduce the number of abortions, find it so wrong that a woman reflect on her decision and maybe let her child live.”

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