The Supreme Court Turns Back the Clock on Women’s Health
NAF condemned a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court upholding a federal law banning certain abortions. The Bush Court clearly put politics ahead of protecting women’s health.
“This decision is a major setback for women’s health,” said Vicki Saporta, President and CEO of NAF. “It undermines the health protections afforded by Roe v. Wade and opens the door for politicians to pass additional laws that could further jeopardize women’s safety.”
The federal abortion ban interferes with the doctor-patient relationship and the ability of doctors to make appropriate medical decisions. We will be working with our member physicians to ensure that women continue to have access to safe, quality abortion care.
NAF has been on the forefront of challenging this dangerous ban and we need your support to continue our efforts to protect women’s health.
