The following quote may be attributed to National Institute of Family and Life Advocates President and Founder Thomas Glessner regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in June Medical Services v. Russo:

“This ruling allows the loophole enjoyed by abortionists to remain open at the expense of the women the abortion industry claims to serve. All states, including Louisiana, have an interest in regulating abortion and a duty to protect women. Unfortunately, today’s SCOTUS decision denies this critical principle.”

The following quote may be attributed to NIFLA Vice President of Legal Affairs, Anne O’Connor regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in June Medical Services v. Russo:

“Women seeking abortions have the same right to competent and quality care as patients involved in other surgical procedures. Louisiana’s dangerous and medically substandard abortion clinics harm women. Sadly, this ruling prioritizes abortion business interests over women’s health and safety.”

The following quote may be attributed to NIFLA attorney Angie Thomas regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in June Medical Services v. Russo:

“We are disappointed that SCOTUS continues to protect the practices of abortion providers at the expense of women’s well-being. Louisiana abortion providers have an alarming and dangerous record of substandard healthcare—including botched abortions and failure to satisfy basic sanitary requirements. Unfortunately, this ruling will allow the abortion industry to continue to put profits before patients.”
