Pro-Life Leaders Disheartened by SCOTUS Decision in Texas’ Abortion Case
Jeanne Mancini, March for Life President and Pro-Life leaders hold Press Conference on Supreme Court Steps
|Washington, D.C. — By a vote of 5-3 the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down the Texas law requiring abortion clinic regulations in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt.
“Being pro-life means wanting what is best for women and babies. The Texas law was in the best interest of women’s health. Because of the decision today, beauty parlors, veterinarian clinics and public pools will be held to higher sanitary and health standards than abortion clinics.” Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life. “As President of an organization that works for a culture where abortion is unthinkable, my hope is that no woman would choose abortion. But can’t we agree to care about safety and health standards? For years abortion advocates have equated greater access to abortion with improving women’s health. In doing so they have advocated for substandard health regulations. This is not pro-woman. Women and babies are the real losers of today’s decision.”
The press conference will be held on the steps of the Supreme Court Today, at (time). Speakers at the event will include:
Who: Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund
What: Pro-Life Press Conference
Where: US Supreme Court Plaza
When: Monday, June 24th (time)
The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.
