TEXAS FREEDOM NETWORK STATEMENT ON THE SUPREME COURT’S ABORTION DECISION TODAYby
This Victory Doesn’t End the Fight for the Dignity of Women and their Constitutional Right to Make their Own Health Care Decisions
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 27, 2016
Texas Freedom Network President Kathy Miller has the following statement on today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court striking down key provisions of Texas’ extreme anti-abortion law:
“This decision is a huge victory for the dignity of women and their constitutional right to make their own health care decisions. But extremists from the Governor’s Office to the state Capitol are already preparing more legislative efforts to deny women their constitutional right to access safe and legal abortion care in Texas. They refused to listen to the experts who said this law was medically unnecessary and to the voices of thousands of women who came to the Capitol three years ago. But the Supreme Court listened to those voices and today honored the constitutional right of women to access abortion care no matter their zip code. This fight continues until our lawmakers trust Texas women and families to make their own decisions about their health care and their future.”
Texas Freedom Network is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization of religious and community leaders who support religious freedom and individual liberties.
