Supreme Court emergency abortion decision frustrates both sides

On Wednesday, after a copy of the draft opinion was obtained by Bloomberg News, Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, said the danger is still imminent for pregnant mothers in need of emergency care. She said in a statement the decision the draft appeared “to leave the door open for the Supreme Court to end emergency abortion care in the coming months or years.”

“It is only a small measure of justice that for now people in Idaho can continue to access the care that they need – victory will only happen when abortion is completely legal, available, and accessible for everyone, everywhere in the country,” she said.
