USCCB files brief in support of regulation of abortion clinics in Texas
February 03, 2016
Joining with other Christian organizations that oppose abortion, the Office of General Counsel of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has filed an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief as the US Supreme Court decides whether regulations of abortion clinics in Texas are constitutional.
“There is ample evidence in this case that hospital admitting privileges and ambulatory surgical center requirements protect women's lives and health," the brief stated. "When such requirements are not enforced, abuses detrimental to women's lives and health arise.”
