5th Circuit affirms law to protect women

ADF official comment
Published On: 10/18/2017

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox regarding the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit decision Thursday to deny a rehearing in Planned Parenthood of Texas Surgical Health Services v. Abbott and uphold a Texas regulation that protects women against cut-and-run abortionists:


“Women deserve real doctors, not transient abortionists who have no connection to their patients or their communities. The U.S. Court of Appeals for 5th Circuit has affirmed that the health and safety of women is more important than an abortionist’s bottom line – including the bottom line of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion seller. Planned Parenthood’s opposition to these basic health requirements is simply additional evidence that they care more about profit than about what’s best for women.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
