The Supreme Court has overturned a Texas law that had implemented common-sense regulations for abortion clinics.
According to LifeSiteNews.com:
The case involves Texas’ H.B. 2, a pro-life law that, aside from restricting abortion to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, required abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their offices and abortion facilities to meet the same health standards as other ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs).
Many states, like Tennessee, have developed similar laws and regulations that may now be threatened because of this ruling.
Alliance Defending Freedom has a piece that accurately addresses the unfortunate implications of the decision:
One must ask, why would the abortion industry, which touts that abortion is “safe” and seeks to provide women the “highest medical care possible,” object to laws that actually ensure the safest protections for women? The answer is simple – the abortion industry cares more about its bottom line than the protection of women’s health.
Planned Parenthood and its pro-abortion allies have consistently shown that their goals are more focused on profit and politics than the healthcare and, sadly, many corporations help fund the agenda of these groups.
