MSNBC interviewed Center president and CEO Nancy Northup about the Supreme Court’s ruling that left Texas’s abortion ban in effect and left only a limited path to challenge the law in federal court. Northup said, “I think this decision will go down as one of the most disgraceful decisions in Supreme Court history… Yes, the court did leave a shred of our case that we will continue to pursue and we’ll look at every legal option to get this law blocked. But in the meantime, it leaves women and pregnant people in Texas to be absolutely in a state of panic and disarray about when this is going to end.”
Amy Hagstrom Miller, the Center’s client and the president and founder of Whole Woman’s Health, said to MSNBC, “We’ve had to turn hundreds and hundreds of patients away… This is going to have an effect for generations across Texas as people are forced to carry pregnancies they don’t feel ready for. It’s really awful to watch this on our watch in the United States, where people [around the world] look to us for freedom, liberty, and equality.”
