Press Statement: Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt Case is Victory for SC Women

Posted by Emily Crawford on June 27, 2016 at 10:17 AM

On Monday, the Supreme Court issued a landmark decision in the Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt case by striking down provisions of Texas HB2 as unconstitutional. This decision allows all Texas clinics currently open to stay open and paves the way for more clinics to open in the future. 

This week's decision continues to fuel the powerful momentum for ensuring women’s rights and against political interference in the right to safe, legal abortion. We at Tell Them and the South Carolina Coalition for Healthy Families realize  the fight to protect women’s access to the full range of health services does not end today. This is a first step toward dismantling medically unnecessary laws aimed at undermining women’s abilities to exercise their rights.
