06.27.16 - Rep. Phillips Comments On U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Affirming Women's Right To Comprehensive Healthcare

 

State Representative Debbie Phillips (D-Albany) today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, in which the court found that restrictions on access to comprehensive healthcare in Texas placed an undue burden on women, violating the American Constitution: 

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is a victory for our legal system of checks and balances. The court rightfully recognized and blocked the Texas legislature’s unconstitutional attempt to impede women’s access to healthcare. I hope this will cause politicians across the nation — especially here in Ohio — to refocus their efforts toward helping citizens and families who are struggling to makes ends meet instead of interfering in such extremely personal decisions.”
