Whole Woman’s Health Decision: “Bottom line over health and safety of women”

The US Supreme Court issued their decision on Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt today (read about it here and decision is here). Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, issued the following statement:  Kristan at SCOTUS statement

“Women lost today. Every time a woman seeks an abortion, she will wonder if the facility is clean. She will wonder if the abortionist has the necessary credentials to local hospitals in case of emergency. She will wonder if she is going into a facility like Kermit Gosnell’s, which had been compared to a disgusting gas station bathroom with blood on both the floor and medical instruments. It is the within the rights of the states, indeed, it is the duties of the states, to protect its citizens from predatory businesses, which is exactly what the abortion industry is. They prey on the vulnerabilities of women who are in desperate situations, placing their bottom line over the health and safety of the patients. And the U.S. Supreme Court, in efforts to put the so-called ‘right to abortion’ above everything else, just let them get away with it.”
