LAGOP Statement on U.S. Supreme Court's Ruling on Louisiana Abortion Law


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 29th, 2020

Baton Rouge, LA-The Republican Party of Louisiana is very disappointed by today’s U. S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Louisiana’s abortion law.  As Attorney General Jeff Landry has already stated, this is a tragic decision that only advances the cause of devaluing human life. 


As pro-life conservatives, we believe that every single human life is equally valuable. When any society routinely condones practices that devalue human life, this only leads to further systemic injustice. For-profit abortion is one of the worst injustices plaguing modern American society. The practice unduly targets disadvantaged and other vulnerable groups and perpetuates a myth that some lives are more valuable than others. Rather than liberating women, abortion has allowed for the development of new forms of female oppression. Far from being a humane practice, abortion is a barbaric one which has no place in a just society. 


“The Louisiana abortion law which was struck down earlier today had sought to make for-profit abortion groups more responsible for the safety and welfare of their patients,” said LAGOP Chairman Louis Gurvich. “That our nation’s highest court found such legislation to be unconstitutional is a sad testament to the state of our country. We will not stop working until this injustice is no more.”
