Fr. Pavone Urges Alabama Officials to Keep Pledge on Abortion Clinic Inspections

Priests for Life

Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged Alabama health department officials to follow through on their promise to inspect the state's eight abortion centers on an annual basis.

"It's encouraging that Alabama has hired more staff to police the conditions at abortion facilities in the state," said Fr. Pavone. "Given that previous inspections resulted in three out of Alabama's eight abortion centers being shut down for shoddy practices and conditions, it's absolutely incumbent upon officials to keep their pledge to monitor these facilities on a timely basis. Making abortion legal has obviously not made it safe."
