The rates for the three-body proton decays p→ππe+ are related to the rate for the decay p→π0e+. This is done by making an ansatz for the form of the three-body amplitude which is consistent with current algebra and with the measured ππ final-state interactions. We find that the three-body decay rates are comparable with the rate for the two-body decay p→π0e+.
