WASHINGTON D.C. (08-27-19) – “This case in Missouri shows Americans all they need to know about the unscrupulous, predatory abortion lobby, headed by Planned Parenthood,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “This ruling is a travesty of justice and an insult to the democratic process. Once again, an activist judge imposes his will on the electorate who said they wanted to protect preborn children aborted starting at 8 weeks.
Rulings like these will motivate voters in 2020 because the courts should not be able to ignore the legislative process. Planned Parenthood was founded by the confirmed racist Margaret Sanger and today fights in court to continue that legacy by attempting to stop a law that reflects the views of voters who wanted to protect children against discrimination in the womb. Instead the abortion lobby consistently does an end run around voters to go straight to agenda-driven judges.
“Despite the fact that Missouri’s one abortion facility, a Planned Parenthood, has documented issues that cause harm to women, a judge has shamefully allowed it to continue operating without a license. This kind of blatant disregard for the people of America to have a voice on abortion policy is a result of the activism of the Supreme Court and will continue to motivate Americans at the ballot box.”
Earlier this year, a Students for Life of America sponsored poll of Millennials found that 65 percent support the right to vote on abortion-related policy and want a voice on abortion policy.
