160627USsupremecourtIn a 5-3 decision today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against a Texas law that required abortion clinics to provide a standard of medical care necessary to protect – and sometimes even save the lives – of women facing complications from the abortion procedure.

Similar to the telemed abortion decision by the Iowa Supreme Court, once again a group of judges has defied doctors and ignored women’s health to protect the abortion industry from being held accountable to safe standards of medical care.

Simply put, we can expect more women will be maimed or killed because of this decision.

The Supreme Court thinks protecting women is too much of a “burden” for the abortion industry to worry about. But making abortion facilities safer for women is not a burden – it’s just common sense.

At The FAMiLY LEADER, we believe both the child’s life and the mother’s life is sacred. This is why we tweet about the issue using the hashtag #ProtectThemBoth and why we continue to work with local and national leaders to advocate for an America that honors God and blesses people. Would you consider giving to support our efforts to protect women and children today?
