Planned Parenthood: Supreme Court Ruling Upholding Texas 6-Weeks Abortion Ban Is ‘Terrifying,’ ‘Dangerous,’ Discriminatory’


Planned Parenthood issued a scathing rebuke of the Supreme Court’s ruling on Friday, calling the decisions “terrifying,”  “dangerous,” and “discriminatory.”

“Because many people don’t know they’re pregnant at six weeks, this law would effectively outlaw abortion for most Texans. It’s unconscionable — and unconstitutional,” Planned Parenthood Action warns on its blog.

“It’s terrifying,” the abortion giant continues. Everyone deserves the freedom to control their own body. Nobody should be forced to stay pregnant against their will. Abortion is health care that, like birth control, people have used throughout history. Access to safe, legal abortion is a fundamental human right.”

In a Friday ruling, the Supreme Court upheld a Texas law banning abortions after 6 weeks, but decided to allow abortion providers to challenge the law in a lower federal court as the law remains in effect.

Under Texas Senate Bill 8, which went into effect in Texas on Sept. 1, private individuals can sue clinics, doctors or anyone who allegedly performs abortions on women after the sixth week of pregnancy, when embryonic cardiac activity begins. The law does not exempt pregnancies resulting from rape or incest.

While a federal judge has blocked SB8, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has twice ruled to allow enforcement of the abortion ban.

The court also decided Friday that a second lawsuit filed by the Biden administration challenging the restriction on abortion could not proceed, allowing only private parties to go forward against the law.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has joined a slew of left-wing activist groups, including the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Lawyering Project, the American Civil Liberties Union in filing a lawsuit to block the law in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.

As Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger, champions the “my body, my choice” slogan, the abortion giant launched a $2 million campaign to combat COVID-19 “vaccine hesitancy.”

In an op-ed in the Washington Post, former Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen argues the jab should be mandatory and  is not “an individual decision.”
