Three Abortion-Related Case Decisions Students for Life of America is Watching at the U.S. Supreme Court 

Kristi Hamrick - 06 Jun 2024

Students for Life of America (SFLA) was involved with three U.S. Supreme Court cases in 2024 due to its connection to abortion, whether agency involvement is direct or indirect.

All the cases have big-picture implications for how agencies operate, specifically the weaponization and out-of-control Federal Agencies. We need to give power back to the people, which includes:  

  • Ending Agency Rule by unelected, partisan bureaucrats.  
  • Ending CHEVRON, which supports and moves forward abortion by Agency Power Play. 

As summer begins, the U.S. Supreme Court Justices will render their decisions. Here are the U.S. Supreme Court Cases and everything that you need to know in a nutshell.  

State of Idaho v. United States 

State of Idaho v. United States centers around a regulation called EMTALA the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act – designed to require hospitals to stabilize all patients in the emergency room, regardless of their ability to pay. According to an NIH published report: “In July 2022, the (Department of Health and Human Services) HHS issued guidance to clarify that EMTALA requires abortion care despite contrary state laws” — also claiming that federal law trumped states laws on abortion.” (emphasis added) Biden’s HHS tried to change a regulation to force states that respect preborn life to commit abortions in emergency rooms.

Bottom line: THE STATE OF IDAHO STANDS WITH MOTHERS AND THE PREBORN and treats both the mother and child in an emergency room.  

The end of Roe v. Wade means there should be MORE respect for states’ rights, not less.  

If your healthcare kills people ON PURPOSE, you’re doing it wrong. The State of Idaho looks at a pregnant patient and sees two in need – that’s what real healthcare looks like. 

Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. U.S. Food and Drug Administration 

Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. U.S. Food and Drug Administration is being brought by the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine. This nonprofit organization represents almost 30,000 healthcare professionals, including the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, as a member organization. The organization is legally represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).  

ADF has found a unique way to crack down on Chemical Abortion Pills in this way as they make the case in their lawsuit that the approval of these drugs was a rush job, a closed-door deal by the Clinton Administration that resulted in the life-ending pills coming onto the market in 2000. Corners were cut, and safety tests were not submitted. In particular, the lawsuit notes that there wasn’t sufficient testing on the pills’ impact on minors. In addition, pro-life doctors’ conscience rights are violated by forcing them to complete abortions, going wrong when women go to emergency rooms in crisis.

Students for Life of America (SFLA) has an amicus brief in the case that says we share the concerns of ADF but raise additional harm from Chemical Abortion Pills – harms to endangered species and the environment. 

Bottom line: PRO-LIFE DOCTORS STAND WITH MOTHERS AND THE PREBORN and against the reckless distribution of deadly Chemical Abortion Pills.  

If the case is sent back, three states and SFLA will be ready with additional victims. The states can argue they are also victims and have standing because they are paying ER bills for botched abortions.  

SFLA argues that endangered species and the environment are at risk, harming us all. 

Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo & Relentless, Inc. v. U.S. Dept. of Commerce 

Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo & Relentless, Inc. v. U.S. Dept. of Commerce relates to oppressive requirements demanded of fishermen by the EPA, a federal agency bullying citizens with outrageous regulations. The issue is the CHEVRON DEFERENCE, which comes from a court case where a judge said that agencies should benefit from the doubt regarding all policies. Chevron has been a magical force allowing laws to be created without a voice or a vote.

In the Loper case, the EPA essentially put fishing traffic cops on the boats of small businesses so that they could hand out tickets and fines more easily.  

They made the fisherman kick a worker off the boat AND pay for the traffic cop. Imagine driving around with a traffic cop who you pay!  

SFLA joined a brief filed by Advancing American Freedom. The brief found here, notes the problems with letting runaway agencies be judge, jury, and executioner when it comes to the law and the penalties.  In addition, on our news site, we show the abusive use of Chevron when it comes to abortion, reporting:  

“When it comes to abortion, Chevron deference is important because No Test, Online Distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills wasn’t set up with a law, but with regulations. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has weaponized their deference on matters of public health and drug safety to defend its politicized stance on mifepristone, one of the two culprits in Chemical Abortions (also known as medication abortions).”   

Bottom line: THE FISHING INDUSTRY STAND AGAINST CHEVRON, AND STUDENTS FOR LIFE JOINS THEM IN TELLING FEDERAL AGENCIES TO GO FISH.  If you want to pass a law, pass a law, but stop using unelected bureaucrats to do your dirty work– on abortion policy or in any other area of life. 

Any limit or overturning of Chevron Deference is a win for taxpayer Americans and against weaponized agencies. It will buy back hours of my future time, as Chevron deference occupies so much discussion every time there is a Supreme Court vacancy.  

Chevron = FDA/EPA et al is god. We know they are not.  

From the pro-life movement to Federal Agencies: Go fish. Stop trying to coerce into laws that no one would vote for.

There is plenty of evidence that agencies make mistakes, and it is only a matter of time before this is addressed. 

We can’t wait to be back in court with more victims of the reckless Chemical Abortion Pill policy set up by THREE Democratic Party Presidents – they didn’t care what happened to women as long as babies died.  

If the case is sent back, that’s ok.  

If it is ended, SFLA will be back.
