Pro-lifers question why abortion industry opposes Louisiana law

Pro-life advocates are not fearful of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to consider the constitutionality of a Louisiana pro-life law, potentially setting up what abortion-rights supporters hope will be the reversal of a 2016 ruling on a similar case in Texas.

The high court announced Oct. 4 it would review a lower court opinion regarding a Louisiana requirement that an abortion doctor must have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. 

Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, said, “For a movement that purports to advocate for women’s health it is bizarre that the abortion industry opposes laws like this. What are they so afraid of? What’s wrong with the abortionist that he can’t get admitting privileges at a hospital?” (BP)
