Alexandra DeSanctis of the Ethics and Public Policy Center labeled the Supreme Court decision “another disappointment” for the pro-life movement.

“… the majority has upheld flawed precedent and permitted abortionists to continue benefiting from an enormous loophole, ignoring the health and safety concerns at stake for women seeking a surgical abortion,” wrote DeSanctis in a piece for National Review.

“According to the Supreme Court’s majority opinion, applying that same policy to abortion providers is an unacceptable infringement on a woman’s supposed constitutional right to an abortion — in short, they have widened the gaping loophole that already exists for any policy related abortion, what the late Justice Antonin Scalia called the judiciary’s ‘abortion distortion.’”
