NWLC Responds To Supreme Court Blocking Unconstitutional Louisiana Abortion Law

Posted on February 7, 2019 Issues: Abortion Health Care & Reproductive Rights

The following is a statement by Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC):

“Amidst relentless attacks from anti-abortion politicians, the Supreme Court rightly stopped a blatantly unconstitutional law. The Louisiana law would shut down clinics across the state and is identical to a Texas law the Court struck down less than 3 years ago. It’s shameful that Louisiana politicians and anti-abortion judges let it go this far. The ability to make personal decisions about our health is being targeted at every level of our government, including by the President earlier this week. We won’t stop until everyone in Louisiana and across the country, especially those who already face barriers to care, has access to safe and legal abortion.”
