CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT ON TODAY'S SUPREME COURT RULING ON TX HB2


In an activist ruling today, a week before we celebrate our nation's founding, the United States Supreme Court dealt a blow to the ideals of life and liberty set out in the Declaration of Independence. 

The Court struck down common-sense Texas law that protected women's health by requiring facilities and doctors that perform abortions to meet basic health care standards. This is a sad outcome given the need to ensure women receive safe health care in a culture that increasingly places little value on life, including the innocent life of unborn children.

As Justice Thomas articulated in his dissent, this is a victory for no one, and a loss for America.  It is also a stark reminder of the importance of electing a Republican President this year who will appoint principled constitutional conservatives to the Supreme Court who follow the law, and don't create their own.
