U.S. SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS REQUIRED ULTRASOUNDS BEFORE AN ABORTION
The following statement is from Steve Rupp, President of Missouri Right to Life:
Dec. 10th, the Missouri Supreme Court heard a challenge to the Missouri Legislature’s denial of state funds going to Planned Parenthood. Solicitor General John Sauer of the Attorney General’s office presented the case in defense of the State of Missouri’s right to defund Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood continues to seek any way possible to access our tax dollars to fund their abortion business and pro-life leaders are working to prevent funding abortion with public monies.
While the Missouri Supreme Court is in the process of deciding whether legislators have the right to prevent our tax dollars from going to the abortion industry, the U.S. Supreme Court decided on another pro-life bill.
Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to let stand a lower court’s decision on Kentucky’s “Display and Describe” law that requires an abortionist to show a mother the ultrasound and describe her unborn child to her prior to the abortion. This court decision sets the standard allowing other states to pass similar legislation.
