“Wisconsin Right to Life is pleased to see that the abortion issue will again be at the center of attention in the United States Supreme Court,” shared Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life.
“While the laws being challenged may not directly result in overturning Roe v. Wade, they will allow us to see how the new court will lean on this issue.
“When a similar law from Texas was dismissed in 2016, Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch were not on the court. This case will be a good opportunity for the new justices to confirm their positions regarding the undue burden test. We thank the court for considering this case.
“It remains unclear to any of us at Wisconsin Right to Life how anyone on the abortion industry side can claim they are advocates of women’s healthcare when they won’t even support requiring admitting privileges for physicians who perform abortions. This is a commonsense medical qualification.”
Wisconsin Right to Life supported legislation that passed in 2013 to require physicians in Wisconsin who performed abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of where the abortion was performed. Although that law was struck down, Wisconsin Right to Life will continue to fight to protect women and their children.
