The United Methodist Church also condemned the court's ruling, arguing in a statement that the "decision denied the value and dignity of women to access the fundamental right to the supportive care and services they deserve."

"This commitment to the sacred worth of all people has called us to prayerfully reflect on the justice, rights, and health for the mother, child and family," UMC stated, citing the church's social principles. 

"Through our prayerful advocacy and witness we as a church affirm that, 'we are equally bound to respect the sacredness of the life and well-being of the mother and the unborn child. We recognize tragic conflicts of life with life that may justify abortion, and in such cases, we support the legal option of abortion under proper medical procedures by certified medical providers.'"
