Two safety provisions of a 2013 Texas law addressing abortion providers were rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court in a late June decision: the need to meet ambulatory surgical center standards and admission privileges for abortionists at a hospital within 30 miles.
As reported in the National Catholic Register, Justice Stephen Breyer, in his majority opinion, stated that “neither of these provisions offers medical benefits sufficient to justify the burdens upon access that each imposes.”
John Eastman, director of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, noted: “These were relatively modest regulations, and they apply to many other hospital and medical facilities. But if you want to have an abortion, no rules apply.”
No rules apply! Other surgical centers must meet the regulations, but not abortion facilities. I reiterate what I stated in my June newsletter column: “For abortion supporters, it is the abortionist that must be protected, not the woman.”
Here is the real war on women. Women must be made aware of the following fact: their well-being is not a concern of their government or of the abortion industry. So, when women walk into an abortion facility, they are risking their health and possibly their lives (recall Kermit Gosnell).
