Statement from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Brian Kelsey regarding Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, the U.S. Supreme Court decision on abortion

NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 27, 2016 — Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Brian Kelsey (R-Germantown) made the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision handed down today on abortion:

“I am very disappointed in the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down commonsense regulations of the abortion industry. This decision erodes the right of states to ensure the health and safety of mothers undergoing an abortion. The decision also underscores the need for pro-life leaders who will stand up for patient safety and the unborn.”
