DALLAS, TX – Human Coalition Action Executive Director Rev. Dean Nelson today released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court ruling against the state of Louisiana in the June Medical Services v. Russo case.
“I am disappointed and grieved over today’s decision to overturn the Louisiana doctors privileges law by the U.S. Supreme Court — a law that safeguards and protects the lives of women should complications occur after an abortion. It is only common sense that women should be able to receive time-sensitive, emergent medical care in the case of an abortion emergency. To not uphold this law is not only negligent, it’s potentially deadly,” said Dean.
“This ruling represents the continuation of a dangerous pattern in which abortion providers are granted exemptions that no others have. And these exemptions not only allow for the continued killing of preborn children, they also place women in grave danger by lowering the standards of their care.”
“If the last several months have taught us anything, it’s that human life is precious, valuable and worth fighting for. I hope and pray that our nation’s eyes will be opened to the crisis of human dignity we face, and will begin taking every measure to safeguard life.”
Human Coalition Action is the public policy advocacy 501(c)4 arm of Human Coalition, one of the largest pro-life organizations in the nation, bringing compassionate and holistic care to tens of thousands of women facing crisis pregnancies each year through virtual and brick-and-mortar clinics staffed with professional nurses and social workers.
Human Coalition Action advocates for preborn children by challenging legislators to vote for pro-life policies, informing voters about pro-life candidates, and supporting pro-life legal arguments in the Courts.
In December 2019, Human Coalition Action joined the Christian Legal Society, Catholic Bar Association, and National Pro-Life Alliance to file an amicus brief in favor of the constitutionality of Louisiana.
