Sasse Statement on Texas Ruling


Date: June 27, 2016
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its 5-3 decision in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, striking down Texas' common-sense regulation of basic health standards in abortion facilities.

"The Supreme Court's ruling is a disappointment for millions of pro-life Americans who understand that being pro-life is about protecting babies and their mothers. Both sides of the abortion debate should have been able to agree that sanitary conditions and hospital admitting privileges are not controversial."
