U.S. Supreme Court Strikes Down Texas Abortion Center Regulations
Today the United States Supreme Court, on a 5-3 decision, struck down Texas abortion regulations that (1) require abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles and (2) require abortion centers to meet the same health/building standards as ambulatory surgical centers.
The case, Whole Womanâ€™s Health v. Hellerstedt, marked the first major decision on abortion access in over twenty years. The case focused on whether the above described regulations pose an â€œundue burdenâ€ for women trying to access abortion, a standard set forth in the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision.
The abortion industry unceasingly claims that abortion is health care, yet when states enact common sense laws regulating abortionists as health care providers or abortion centers as health care clinics they cry foul. Clearly, profit trumps womenâ€™s health and safety in the abortion movement.
The fact is that abortion kills babies and damages women physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is a total failure for mothers, fathers, families and communities. It is a bloody stain on America and it must end. Pro-Life Wisconsin will continue to pray and work for a day when every
child is welcomed and loved as a blessing from God and protected as a person with full legal rights.
