After the Supreme Court struck down Texas' abortion clinic regulations last week, a new report claims that these clinics are ignoring health standards and continuing to put women at risk.
"It just shows that, over and over again, the abortion industry is more concerned about putting profit ahead of the safety of women," said Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood employee and founder of the pro-life "And Then There Were None" ministry, which helps abortion clinic workers leave the industry.
The #NotOver campaign is a "multi-phase" project launched after the Supreme Court struck down safety regulations of Texas abortion clinics on June 27. It aims to draw attention to poor health standards at abortion clinics and push Congress to pass clinic regulations.
In Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, the Supreme Court ruled that Texas regulations of abortion clinics – that they be constructed to the safety standards of ambulatory surgical centers and that abortionists have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles – unconstitutionally put an "'undue burden' on a women's right to decide to have an abortion."
