It’s an odd thing to see: Pro-life women speaking out in favor of safety standards for abortion. Pro-life women. Not pro-abortion women.
Following Monday’s ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, pro-life leaders slammed the Supreme Court decision in the Texas abortion case that left them “heartbroken” and “disappointed.” MRC Culture spoke with three women leaders who called out the justices for failing to protect women and criticized the media for siding with abortion supporters: Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life, Arina Grossu of Family Research Council and Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America.
Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, described the justices’ decision as a “huge disappointment” and “travesty.”
“The Supreme Court put the so-called right to abortion in front of safety for abortion and told the states that they no longer can protect half of their citizens,” she told MRC Culture.
