Cotton Statement on Supreme Court’s Decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt
Washington, D.C.— Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt to invalidate a Texas law aimed at protecting women from unsafe abortion providers:
“By caving to the demands of abortion extremists who seek to normalize the ending of an innocent human life in the womb regardless of the dangers, the Supreme Court has left almost no room for common sense and simple decency in our nation’s approach to abortion.  I deeply believe that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and that it should be—and will be—overturned someday.  But before that time, we all should have been able to agree that duly elected representatives of the people can pass laws to protect women from unsafe abortion providers. That’s now impossible after this decision, and it will be to the detriment of the well-being of women across the nation.”
