The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Julia Payne regarding a friend-of-the-court brief ADF attorneys filed Friday with the Utah Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood Association of Utah v. State of Utah on behalf of Utah Eagle Forum in support of the state’s pro-life law, which Planned Parenthood is challenging:
“Utah is eager to affirm that life is a human right and, to that end, the state has enacted a pro-life law protecting that most fundamental of rights for the unborn. Pro-life laws like Utah’s also help women by ensuring they have the support they need during a difficult time in their lives. Women deserve access to real health care, not the dangerous and unnecessary procedures Planned Parenthood peddles to make a profit. We are pleased to join in supporting Utah’s effort to protect the lives of unborn children and mothers and urge the state’s high court to reverse the trial court’s injunction halting Utah’s pro-life law.”
Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.
