Sanctity of Life-A-2-F

07 Jul

Liberal courts have disregarded the health of the mother when they have struck down State laws requiring that abortion clinics have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital in case a woman has a medical emergency. The Supreme Court just struck down a Louisiana law requiring abortion clinic doctors to have admitting privileges to a nearby hospital. This was a big disappointment because Justice Roberts voted for such a law previously but voted with the liberal justices this time. Abortion clinics fight such laws because hospitals do not want to associate with abortion clinics and some abortion doctors aren’t licensed to practice medicine. Such laws are needed because medical emergencies occur in any surgical procedure and many women are injured and some die every year from careless abortion doctors. Some abortion clinics have to send patients as much as 50 miles or more to a hospital that will accept them, and it is dangerous for abortion clinics to operate without a nearby hospital that will allow them admitting privileges.
