A Statement from Center for Arizona Policy President, Cathi Herrod, Esq.
Phoenix – “Today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt means women undergoing an abortion will not have the same common-sense safety precautions in place as they would for any other medical procedure.
To give the abortion industry a blanket exemption from laws applicable to every other medical facility is unconscionable.
Abortionists like Kermit Gosnell are celebrating today because they can continue to prey upon women and put profit above women’s health and safety. Gosnell is the abortionist who sits in prison today for operating a clinic that ignored basic health and safety requirements similar to those ruled invalid.
Women deserve better.
Ultimately, the facts that abortion hurts women and takes the life of a preborn child will prevail. Those facts are irrefutable.”
