March for Life President Jeanne Mancini: ‘beauty parlors, vet clinics, public pools’ will be held to higher health standards than abortion clinics

By a 5-3 decision, the Supreme Court has struck down the Texas law requiring abortion clinic health and safety regulations in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellersted case. Justice Breyer wrote that “There was no significant health-related problem that the new law helped to cure” and that these safety requirements, emergency care guidelines “poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions, and constitutes an ‘undue burden’ on their constitutional right to do so.””

“Being pro-life means wanting what is best for women and babies. The Texas law was in the best interest of women’s health. Because of the decision today, beauty parlors, veterinarian clinics and public pools will be held to higher sanitary and health standards than abortion clinics.” Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life. “If we are pro-woman, can’t we agree to care about safety and health standards? For years abortion advocates have equated greater access to abortion with improving women’s health. In doing so they have advocated for substandard health regulations. This is not pro-woman. Women and babies are the real losers of today’s decision.”

The verdict raises questions in several states who have various forms of rules and restrictions on clinics.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joined Breyer’s opinion and wrote that “When a State severely limits access to safe and legal procedures, women in desperate circumstances may resort to unlicensed rogue practitioners, faute de mieux, at great risk to their health and safety.”
The Texas law was inspired in part by the House of Horrors in Pennsylvania where abortionist Kermit Gosnell lost a patient after a botched abortion and had limited to no emergency care access to save the woman. The resulting investigation of his clinic revealed a list of shocking procedures, late-term abortions and his “snipping” technique.
