The U.S. Supreme Court to decide on Texas law on abortion facilities standards

Abortion facilities should be held to the same standards as other outpatient surgical clinics. The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether a Texas law requiring those standards should be upheld.

CitizenLink, along with the Charlotte Lozier Institute and Students for Life of America filed a friend-of-the-court brief supporting tougher standards and citing the horrors that were found in Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion facility. CitizenLink President and CEO Paul Weber said clinics that don’t meet basic health and safety standards should not be in operation in the first place.

“States should not be in the business of subsidizing inferior care for patients in order to make it easier for abortion providers to enter and remain in the market,” he said. “Abortion proponents say Texas’ regulations are ‘onerous.’ I say the families of the women killed at Kermit Gosnell’s abortion facility would disagree.”
