Fr. Pavone Praises New Missouri Abortion Clinic Law


Priests for Life



NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised Missouri lawmakers for passing pro-life legislation that will protect women’s health.

“A woman who’s bleeding to death shouldn’t have to wait for a slow-moving ambulance that, at an abortion clinic’s request, travels without sirens or flashing lights,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Neither should abortion clinics operate without regular health and safety inspections.  The new legislation approved in Missouri’s special session clearly draws a line between those who want to protect women and those who want to protect the abortion industry.”

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens called the state legislature into special session six weeks ago to deal with abortion regulations he supports.  The resulting measure prohibits the practice, admittedly employed by Planned Parenthood’s St. Louis clinic in the past, of requesting that ambulances not use sirens or flashing lights when coming to transport the victims of botched abortions to hospitals.  It also requires annual unannounced inspections of clinics and gives the state attorney general authority to prosecute violations of abortion-related laws.”

“Governor Greitens is a shining example of life affirming leadership,” added Fr. Pavone.  “His call for action has resulted in new safeguards for women and their families.  He and the Missouri House and Senate are to be applauded for placing human lives above abortionists’ profits.”
