COURT RULES -- Check the press release and details here.
Perhaps as early as today, the U.S. Supreme Court will pass down its decision on June Medical Services vs. Russo, a case that pits safe medical practices and women's health against the for-profit abortion industry. If the decision is made in favor of the abortion business, doctors in abortion facilities will not be required to have hospital privileges to perform even late-term abortions.
There could not be a less commonsense decision, or one more opposed to protecting human life.
Planned Parenthood and NARAL claim that a decision that requires abortionists to provide the best care will close the majority of Louisiana abortion clinics. But if those abortuaries are not equipped to save the lives of the women who trust them, what is the point of being open in the first place? Abortion always takes the life of a child. If it risks the mother's life, there is not even a pro-choice justification for its legality.
A similar case was brought to the court just a few years ago (Whole Woman's Health vs. Hellenstadt). The court struck down the requirement that abortion providers maintain hospital privileges in Texas. The fact that they are now willing to hear a similar case from Louisiana is an encouraging sign that the justices as a group are more willing to review out-dated, irrational and dangerous pro-abortion laws.
Whatever the outcome, we continue to stand in the gap protecting our women and infants in Massachusetts by opposing the "ROE" Act (S.1209/H.3320).
A decision may be made as early as June 25th, 2020. The final day for the court to hand down a decision is Monday, June 29th.
