Bishop Condemns Pro-Abortion Court Ruling and "Conservative" Judges
Congressman Dan Bishop (NC-09) released the following statement on the United States Supreme Court's decision in June Medical Services vs. Russo to overturn a Louisiana law to require abortion clinics to have doctors with hospital admitting privileges.
"The majority's ruling in June Medical Services vs. Russo undermines the authority of states and federal representatives to tailor laws to the needs and values of their constituents. Conservatives have been promised preservation of their constitutional freedoms only to be saddled with a liberal-driven, legislating Supreme Court," said Rep. Bishop. "When conservative judges routinely act against conservative interests, we must reconsider where and how we source judges."
The decision in June Medical Services vs. Russo follows a series of rulings with deflections from judges appointed by conservatives in favor of a liberal agenda, including preventing President Trump from exercising his authority over immigration and an anti-discrimination case with monumental implications for religious groups.
