US Supreme Court to weigh in on La. law protecting women’s health, safety


Friday, October 04, 2019

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot, vice president of the ADF Center for Life, regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to review June Medical Services v. Gee, a case involving a Louisiana law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a local hospital in the event a woman must seek hospital care due to post-abortion complications:

“Louisiana citizens should have full freedom to prioritize women’s health and safety over the bottom line of abortionists. Women deserve real healthcare, but abortion poses incredible risks to women’s physical and psychological health. All states—including Louisiana—have a valid interest in regulating abortion and protecting the safety of women who face this life-altering procedure. Louisiana’s requirements are common-sense protections that ensure the maximum amount of safety for women.”
