Fr. Pavone: Trust Nevada Women Act is anti-woman, anti-life

TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged the Nevada Assembly to vote down a bill that would allow mothers to be coerced into abortion.

“The Trust Nevada Women Act is the most anti-woman, anti-life piece of legislation I have seen in a long time,” Father Pavone said. “We know from the women who turn to Rachel’s Vineyard for healing after abortion and the women who are part of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign that coercion is behind many, if not most, abortions. And yet this bill sanctions coercion.

“The bill also would repeal laws that criminalize abortions not performed as legally prescribed or force people to testify in such cases,” Father Pavone said. “Does that mean a father who does not want his child can now legally give the mother abortion-causing drugs without her knowledge, and the pharmacist who sold the drugs is now able to avoid testifying?

“Moreover, the name of this bill is insulting and ridiculous, as if those on the pro-life side don’t trust women. I trust women not to run red lights or shoplift, but if you think that means I oppose laws prohibiting those things, you have another thing coming.

“I appeal to the members of the Nevada Assembly to stop this dangerous bill in its tracks.”

The Nevada Senate passed Senate Bill 179 by a vote of 12-9 on April 16.
