Kubby On Court Ruling

Kubby On Court Ruling

Karen Kubby of the Emma Goldman Clinic on yesterday's Supreme Court ruling:

The ruling establishes a new era in not requiring abortion restrictions to include a health exception. This has implications around the country for any abortion restriction that currently has a health exception, for example, a 24 hour wait law
except to preserve the health of the woman. It will be hard to know in the short run how this will effect legislation and the health care status of women.

It does, however, put women and their health concerns a few notches down in value in this country.

Update: Gazette has more Iowa reacts. Predictable battle lines. Aside: As a one time Gazette basher I should note that the web site has improved dramatically.
