Fr. Pavone supports "common sense" Indiana abortion bill

Priests for Life-Staten Island, NY

NEW YORK, NY  – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today issued a statement commending the Indiana Legislature for passing SB 292 and urging Gov. Mike Pence to sign the legislation into law.

“President Reagan once said of dealing with the Soviet Union, ‘Trust, but verify.’  All we can say with regard to dealings with abortionists is ‘Verify.’  It’s only common sense that the state should know that abortionists are obeying the law,” Father Pavone said. “This bill is sound legislation and we look forward to Gov. Pence making this bill a law."

Indiana currently requires an abortionist to have local hospital admitting privileges or to have an agreement with a doctor who has such privileges to treat any post-abortion complication. The new bill would require an abortionist to provide to the state the written agreement he has with the hospital or the designated physician. 

The legislation also would amend current law to require annual state inspections of abortion clinics instead of every two years and would require an abortion clinic to maintain a 24-hour hotline to answer emergency calls.

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