It’s been a month since the Supreme Court ruled that legislation duly passed by the State of Texas was unconstitutional. But what really happened when SCOTUS threw out Texas abortion safety standards?

Focus on the Family issued this statement from judicial analyst Bruce Hausknecht:

“The Supreme Court rejected… commonsense regulations prompted by ghastly history of Kermit Gosnell’s abortion activities. Making all surgery as safe as possible for women is common sense and pro-woman.”

He went on to characterize the ruling as an “affront to common sense” which “potentially places women in danger.”

Join us as we discuss the ruling with Hausknecht this week on Cradle My Heart Radio. And we’ll explore a new development in the story: how abortion rights advocates led by one “abortion research megadonor” forced the justices’ hands according to Mother Jones magazine.
