Rubio Joins Colleagues In Whole Woman’s Health Amicus Brief

Feb 3, 2016 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement regarding his participation in an amicus brief, filed in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole which urges the Supreme Court to respect the judgment of the Texas legislature and uphold the constitutionality of Texas’s abortion law:

“Three years ago, our nation’s conscience was shocked by the trial and conviction of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. Gosnell’s horrifying lack of regard for the lives of both women and unborn children inspired millions across the nation to join together and take action on the issue of the sanctity of life. Together, they searched for solutions that would ensure the protection of the lives of women and guarantee that no unborn child developed enough to feel pain could ever be deliberately hurt again.

“This March, the U.S. Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of Texas’s abortion law, or H.B. 2, which requires Texas abortion doctors to have the right to admit patients to local hospitals and subjects abortion clinics to the same regulations that apply to ambulatory surgery centers. This law is designed to safeguard women who choose to have abortions by ensuring that all Texas clinics are sanitary, regulated and in proximity to a hospital in the event complications arise. 

“I am proud to join my Senate and House colleagues in filing a brief urging the Supreme Court to respect the judgment of the Texas legislature. The current Texas law best protects the safety and well-being of women who choose to have abortions, and serves as a model for other states to follow. Until we can put an end to abortion and protect life once and for all, transparency at abortion clinics must be a priority and all abortion doctors and clinics should be subject to the same health and sanitation procedures that apply to other surgical centers.

“We must never forget the Kermit Gosnell trial and the pain it inflicted upon our nation. Today, it serves as a reminder of our obligation to do everything in our power to keep women undergoing abortions safe and out of danger.”
