The Supreme Court could have dealt a deadly blow to the abortion industry but instead chose to override the will of the people recently in the case June Medical Services v. Russo. Louisiana enacted a law insisting that abortionists abide by the same standards of care as all other medical providers. Abortionists sued on behalf of women in general. Recently an attorney said, “This is similar to allowing a car manufacturing company to represent consumer interests when challenging a car safety law.” In effect the abortionists are not protecting the interests of women but their own camouflaged as women’s health.
The court’s decision was narrowly split 5 to 4 and demonstrates the long-term power one more conservative appointee to the Supreme Court could have on supporting the will of the people and the demise of abortion in America.
