ultraYesterday the progressive bloc on the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law that required (1) abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital not more than 30 miles away and (2) clinics to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers. The 5-3 majority said these restrictions place an “undue burden” on women’s “right” to abortion.

We hear a lot of pious statements from the Left about “women’s health” when it comes to abortion, yet this decision, and the ghoulish celebrations that followed its announcement, expose that position as a lie. Never again should we give the defenders of Roe v. Wade the benefit of the doubt when it comes to “women’s health.”

They are not “pro-women’s health” in any meaningful sense, and they certainly do not wish to follow Hillary Clinton’s disingenuous formulation of making abortion “safe, legal, and rare.” They are pro-abortion, plain and simple.
