Fr. Pavone: Abortion No Help for Rape Victims

 

Priests for Life


8/1/2006

       
   
 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                          

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented on the newly released Mason-Dixon poll regarding South Dakota’s abortion ban.

“It is not surprising that many voters feel the law should allow a rape and incest exception.  That’s because they think abortion helps a sexual assault victim.  Every study done on this topic actually shows that sexual assault is a contraindication for abortion, because the abortion reinforces the experience of trauma that the sexual assault created.  We all want to help the victims of rape and incest – and abortion provides no such help at all.”

For information, see the book Victims and Victors (Reardon, Sobie, eds.) and www.priestsforlife.org.

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