This week, Randi, Annie, and Gabe celebrated the Whole Woman’s Health victory!
The 5-3 decision from the US Supreme Court struck down abortion restrictions in Texas. This decision should create a path for better outcomes in fights over reproductive rights in other states.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — The Notorious RBG — gets the That’s What She Said of the week:
Given those realities, it is beyond rational belief that H.B. 2 could genuinely protect the health of women, and certain that the law ‘would simply make it more difficult for them to obtain abortions. When a State severely limits access to safe and legal procedures, women in desperate circumstances may resort to unlicensed rogue practitioners … at great risk to their health and safety.
Justice Breyer wrote the majority decision, joined by Ginsburg, Sotomayor, Kagan, and critical swing vote Kennedy. Justices Alito and Roberts would have sent the case back to Texas for further evidence. Only Thomas would have ruled in favor of Texas Republicans.
Kellie Copeland appeared on WOSU’s All Sides with Ann Fisher to discuss the case and Ohio abortion restrictions. Listen here.
This Sunday, Jaime Miracle will appear on The State of Ohio. Check your local PBS listings, or watch here.
