NARAL Responds To SCOTUS Action on NC Ultrasound Case

June 15, 2015

Statement of Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America:

“Across the country, Republican Governors and state legislatures are passing bills and signing into law legislation that will restrict health care options for women. Today, even the Conservative-led Supreme Court said that one of these attempts—medically unnecessary ultrasounds which trample the rights of doctors and attempt to shame women—goes too far. Doctors should make medical decisions, not politicians. These forced ultrasound bills are not based on science or medicine, they a tool used by anti-choice politicians to pursue a political agenda. While this is unlikely to stop the obsession some in the this country have with banning abortions, and many important court cases remain, today is a good day for not only women but for doctors and the belief that they should have free speech when discussing health care choices with their patients.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all Americans. NARAL works to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”


Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
