Live Action Statement on
June Medical Services v. Russo Decision
Washington, D.C. – Today, the Supreme Court ruled on the case of June Medical Services v. Russo, in which the abortion industry sought to block the State of Louisiana from requiring abortionists to obtain hospital admitting privileges, a basic requirement imposed on ambulatory surgery centers and legitimate healthcare providers.
Lila Rose, Founder and President of Live Action, shared:
“In the very act of bringing a case against Louisiana’s law, the abortion industry reasserted its obsession with profit, at any cost. Abortion businesses claim to be healthcare entities, but resist any law that holds them to the same health and safety standards as the actual medical community. Abortion violently dismembers, decapitates, poisons, and crushes the living bodies of children. Abortion is not, has never been, and never will be healthcare.
“Today’s unjust ruling is a reminder that the lives of an entire people group have been wrongly placed in the hands of nine lawyers, several of whom abuse their power to violate the human right to life. With this decision, the Supreme Court has once again provided aid and comfort to the genocidal abortion industry which profits from the pain and fear of mothers and the deaths of their children. A preborn child’s dependency and vulnerability should never mean a death sentence. Americans who value basic human rights and the dignity of all people will continue to fight until every human life is protected by law.”
