Pro-Life Groups Urge Supreme Court To Consider Women’s Health and Safety in Abortion Clinics and Right of States to Regulate

As much of America sorts out Super Tuesday results, the Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments in a case that could be a defining moment for the safety and health of women in abortion clinics.

Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt revolves around two provisions of the state of Texas’ 2013 law – one that former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis filibustered – that requires abortionists to hold admitting privileges at local hospitals and requires abortion facilities to be held to the same health and safety standards as other outpatient surgery centers.


“Abortion supporters argue that if the law calling for clinic regulations and hospital admitting privileges for abortionists is enacted, it will place an undue burden on women seeking an abortion,” explains Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, in a statement sent to Breitbart News.

He adds:

But that is not really the issue. The truth is that these abortion practitioners think it is an undue burden on them to meet the same safety standards as other surgical practices. It’s not the law that’s bad; it’s the abortion industry that, when left to regulate itself, utterly fails to do so, and places women’s health and safety far behind the bottom line.
