Stop The Sham

Protect Abortion Access

VICTORY

The U.S. Supreme Court has issued a historic decision striking down a Texas law designed to shut down most of the state’s abortion clinics with medically unnecessary restrictions.

The decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt reaffirms a woman’s constitutional right to access legal abortion, and will empower women to fight back against deceptive anti-choice laws in Texas and beyond.

This decisive rejection of clinic shutdown laws marks the most significant abortion-related ruling from the Court in more than two decades, and will have national impact in states where similar laws threaten to shutter abortion clinics with medically unnecessary red tape.

The fight to protect abortion access does not end now—this is just the first step in dismantling hundreds of sham laws aimed at making it harder for women to exercise their rights.
