Hartzler: Supreme Court abortion ruling is a tragedy

(From Fourth District Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler)

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), co-chair of the House Values Action Team, released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s 5-3 decision on the Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt case which involves a Texas law to provide equal protection for the health and safety of women in abortion clinics:

“This is a tragedy. With this decision, the court has put women in harm’s way, allowing abortion clinics to continue operating in dangerous conditions. Ensuring women’s safety when they are going in for surgery of any kind is not an undue burden, it is common sense. I am deeply disappointed in this decision.”

The Supreme Court didn't put women in harm's way. A right denied is not a right. Texas can spin it any way they want, it doesn't change the fact that they were trying to put the procedure out of reach for women.

Do you actually expect this Twit to delve into any subject past the "talking points" her Party provides? She is only a seat warmer in Congress to safeguard the government checks she gets for not growing crops on her farm.
