Pro-Choice Leaders: SCOTUS Decision on Crisis Centers Will Hurt Women
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Judy Chu (D-CA), alongside Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus Co-Chairs Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO), and House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jerry Nadler (D-NY) released the following statement after the Supreme Court Decision on National Institute of Family and Life Advocates vs. Becerra:
“Today, the Supreme Court sided with anti-choice extremists over women. Its decision will directly harm women and undermine their rights to make their own healthcare decisions. All patients deserve access to full and accurate information about their reproductive health care options.
“These deceptively-named ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ intentionally use misleading advertising to confuse and misinform women about their reproductive options, specifically omitting their choice to have an abortion. Furthermore, these facilities often have no licensed medical providers working at the centers. To be clear: denying women this critical information is unethical and will put lives in danger.
“Let’s not forget, this decision is another consequence of President Trump nominating Justice Gorsuch, an anti-reproductive health extremist, to the Supreme Court. We cannot allow this administration, Congressional Republicans, and aggressive anti-women groups to dictate the medical care that women receive.”
