Statement of Rep. Linda Sánchez on Supreme Court Decision on Certain Abortion Procedures

April 19, 2007
Press Release
Washington - Congresswoman Linda Sánchez issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling yesterday to uphold a law banning certain abortion procedures.


"I find it deplorable that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld a law that forbids doctors from performing medical procedures they deem necessary. The Court, by the narrowest of margins, has upheld this bad law that would force medical decisions to be made for political reasons. This decision is a sad step backwards for women and families, and it opens the door for further federal interference with intensely personal family planning decisions.”
