Supreme Court Issues a Victory for Women in Texas Abortion Case

Supreme Court Issues a Victory for Women in Texas Abortion Case

WASHINGTON – Today the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law that imposed medically unnecessary regulations on doctors and facilities that provide abortions. The court’s ruling will have a nationwide impact.

“The nation’s highest court has affirmed that a woman has a constitutional right to have an abortion, no matter where she lives, and not just in theory, but in reality,” said Sarah Preston, Policy Director of the ACLU of North Carolina. “This ruling sends a powerful message to Governor McCrory and North Carolina lawmakers that they cannot enact needless barriers that interfere with a woman’s right to a safe and legal abortion. We will continue to work to ensure that every woman in North Carolina – regardless of where they live or their economic status – has the right to make decisions about when and whether to parent and to access abortion with the compassion, respect, and dignity that they deserve.”
