Fr. Pavone Lauds N.C. Governor for Signing Abortion Waiting Period Law

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory for signing legislation to extend the state’s abortion waiting period from 24 to 72 hours and to require that abortion clinics be inspected once a year.
 
“Governor McCrory and the North Carolina legislature, by enacting the new abortion waiting period, have saved countless women from a lifetime of regret,” said Fr. Pavone.  “As pastoral director of the world’s largest ministries for healing after abortion -- Rachel’s Vineyard and the Silent No More Awareness Campaign -- I know that many mothers weep for their aborted children years, even decades later.  A three-day wait cannot compare to a lifetime of emotional pain.”
 
North Carolina has joined South Dakota, Utah, Missouri, and Oklahoma in adopting a 72-hour waiting period.  About half of the states require a waiting period, usually 24 hours, after a woman receives information on the abortion she might have.
 
The new law also requires annual abortion clinic inspections, with the results of those inspections to be posted online.
 
“Making sure that abortion clinics meet the minimum health and safety standards is just common sense,” added Fr. Pavone, “except to the abortion industry, which is wildly unregulated, and to its advocates, who think that keeping women safe and doctors accountable is somehow antithetical to women’s rights and health. Thank you, Governor McCrory, for doing the right thing.”
