Rep. Raúl Labrador, R-Idaho, issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-3 decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstadt. The Court struck down a Texas law that protected the health and safety of women in the state’s abortion facilities.
“I am deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court has sided with the abortion industry and erased health and safety protections for innocent women and unborn children. This decision means abandoning common-sense clinical standards and the perpetuation of abuse and negligence. Today’s decision is a stark reminder of the importance of electing a new president who will appoint conservative justices to the Court.”
