SCOTUS Overturns HB 2: Women Betrayed

In a 5-3 decision from the U.S. Supreme Court, they decided to overturn the Texas law that would have protected women’s health. 

We’ve read the entire opinion, the concurring opinion, and the two scathing dissenting opinions. We’ve discussed the decision with our attorneys.

Here’s our opinion to the many questions we’re already receiving:

This decision by the Supreme Court is gravely flawed, incoherent, and inconsistent.

The decision threw women under the bus. It asserted debated and questioned medical opinions as fact. It based parts of its decision on how it would cost the abortion clinics too much money to abide by the new health and safety standards rather than women’s health.

Reminder: Planned Parenthood Federation of America alone has a $100 million endowment and has pledged to spend $11 million to elect Hilary Clinton.

This decision is so flawed that it even throws out the recommendations of the Philadelphia grand jury that investigated the Gosnell abortion case. That grand jury recommended that Pennsylvania hold abortion clinics to the regulations that the Supreme Court just struck down!

How will this case affect abortion restriction laws across the country?

We don’t believe current pro-life laws across the country will begin to fall apart. Some could, others won’t. Only time can answer that question. We’re not overly alarmed. How we propose new legislation will need to be clearer. But it won’t stop.

The abortion industry is celebrating today. Let them celebrate. It has now become clearer than ever that the pro-life movement loves and protects women and the abortion industry is about profit.

Former Planned Parenthood Manager Abby Johnson stated today:

“It is dangerous to allow abortion facilities to be less safe than similar ambulatory surgical centers. As a former Planned Parenthood Director myself, and as someone who knows the ins and outs of the industry, I can’t say that I’m surprised that abortion proponents are trying to put profit before care for women.”

The pro-life movement is gaining ground in every single other category – public opinion, science, abortions are at their lowest level, and so on.

Here’s the thing:

We don’t need to make abortion illegal to make it unthinkable. That’s why we focus our efforts on educating on the science and facts surrounding abortion. 

We’re focused on educating the next Supreme Court Justice, political leader or woman in an unplanned pregnancy. So when it comes time for them to make the decision on whether to protect life, they will immediately jump at protecting women and their unborn children.

Education of the medical and scientific facts is absolutely fundamental – the cornerstone – of overturning abortion as is explicitly evident in this decision.

We’re getting back to work absolutely undeterred.
