Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., issued a statement regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling on June Medical Services v. Russo, which struck down a Louisiana law requiring those who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals:

“I am frustrated and angered by today’s Supreme Court ruling,” said Rep. Marshall. “As an OB/GYN of 25 years, I have personally cared for women in emergency situations after they were driving home from a botched abortion at Tiller’s murder clinic. It is necessary to require abortion clinics to comply with basic regulations protecting these women. Beyond the obvious tragedy of abortion, today’s ruling will put the lives and direct health of women at risk. A shameful and wrong decision.”
