The U.S. Supreme Court decided in November to hear arguments for and against a pro-life law in Texas that sources say is responsible for shuttering abortion mills. Among other things, the law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges to nearby hospitals and abortion clinics to meet the same requirements as outpatient surgical centers.
Legislators are trying to raise the standard of care for women at abortion mills.
Twelve black women’s groups have come out against this law, which they say has a “devastating impact” on black women. Atlanta Daily World reported that the groups filed an amicus brief in the case.
Marcela Howell, executive director of In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda, claimed places that kill unborn babies “provide critical health care for women” and that lawmakers who pass these common-sense laws “do not care about the health and wellbeing of women. They are only interested in stopping access to abortions.”
Live Action’s Lila Rose tweeted this fact about Planned Parenthood and clinics:

Snuffing out the life of a voiceless and vulnerable in utero human isn’t “critical health care,” and the money Planned Parenthood receives (yours and mine) could be better spent at places that do provide this care.
Black women make up about six percent of the U.S. population but account for over 30 percent of abortions.
Howell hopes the high court will see “right through this sham and uphold our constitutional right to access all reproductive health care services, including abortion care.”
Racial disparities anywhere else are considered evidence of bias and “racism.” But the abortion disparity doesn’t seem to alarm liberals of any race or sex.
