The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) says it is disappointed that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down common-sense safety standards for abortion clinics – regulations designed to protect women.  The 5-3 decision in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt struck down a Texas law regulating abortion clinics.

The ACLJ filed an amicus brief with the high court on behalf of more than 156,000 Americans and several pro-life organizations urging the court to uphold the Texas law, arguing that “abortion is a procedure fraught with hazards.”

“The Court missed a critical opportunity to protect women by upholding common-sense safety standards for abortion clinics,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. “It is disappointing that a majority of the court voted to reject these safety standards – disappointing but not necessarily surprising since the majority once again relied on the ‘abortion distortion’ factor in reaching its conclusion. This decision underscores the bias applied to the issue of abortion. Justice Alito summed it best with his dissent: ‘The Court’s patent refusal to apply well-established law in a neutral way is indefensible and will undermine public confidence in the Court as a fair and neutral arbiter.’”

Sekulow added:  “Sadly, the majority embraced the false narrative of the pro-abortion industry – that childbirth is more dangerous to a woman than getting an abortion. The assertion is not only inaccurate, it is patently false. And it’s troubling that the majority bought into this false narrative.”

In addition to the more than 156,000 Americans represented in the brief, several other pro-life organizations have signed on to the ACLJ brief including the Family Research Council, the Texas Conservative Coalition, and The Houston Coalition for Life, which owns and operates a mobile Crisis Pregnancy Center which provides free sonogram services to expectant mothers.
