REPRESENTATIVES OF 3,348 WOMEN INJURED BY ABORTION
AND GOSNELL GRAND JURY DOCUMENTARIAN TO SUPPORT TEXAS ABORTION LAW AT SUPREME COURT
Press Conference will be live streamed. Please go to http://www.frc.org/events.
Representatives of the 3,348 Women Injured by Abortion who filed an Amicus Curiae brief at the United States Supreme Court in support of the Texas abortion law protecting women's health and safety will appear at Family Research Council, (Media Center) on March 1, at 1:30 p.m., located at 801 G Street, NW, Washington, D.C. Cindy Collins, Myra Myers, and Nona Ellington, Women Injured by Abortion, and their lawyer, Allan E. Parker, President of The Justice Foundation, will be present to answer media questions concerning their Amicus Curiae brief at the Supreme Court.
Also, appearing will be Jen Brown, the producer of the documentary film 3801 Lancaster: American Tragedy, about the imprisoned abortionist Kermit Gosnell whose horrific practices and lack of health and safety standards led to the death, disease, and depression of women. The story brought national attention to the issue of health and safety standards for women at abortion clinics. Specifically, a woman named Karnamaya Mongar died as a result of Gosnell's actions. Attorney Jonathan Saenz of Texas Values filed an Amicus Curiae brief at the United States Supreme Court on behalf of Jen Brown and the 3801 Lancaster Film Project, which highlights the Gosnell Grand Jury Report which led to a new Texas law for the health and safety of women being enacted.
As women injured by the abortion industry, these women know first-hand that the abortion industry misleads and deceives women and does not adequately protect their health in the abortion context. The Justice Foundation has collected the legally admissible testimonies of over 4,500 women injured by abortion and represents 3,348 of these women in their Amicus Curiae brief at the Supreme Court. Click here to read the brief.
The women's brief also makes the legal point that hemorrhaging, punctured uteruses, colons and other severe problems often occur during or after an abortion. Texas is not seeking to eliminate abortion through this law, as evidenced by the fact that any doctor in Texas, including obstetricians and gynecologists, can perform up to 50 abortions in their own office which would provide far more than the 63,849 abortions which were performed in Texas the last year data was available.
Based on the Plaintiff/Abortionists' own expert witnesses, 210 Texas women per year must be hospitalized for abortion each year. 10 patients per week have to go to an emergency room after an abortion, see Texas Brief on the merits, p. 35. This shows that serious injuries are common enough to require ER or hospital type assistance and serious safety regulations.
Please remember the Supreme Court will hear Oral Argument on March 2 on the Texas HB 2 case. The Court convenes at 10:00 a.m. eastern standard time. The HB 2 case will be argued by our Texas Solicitor General Scott Keller. Please pray for him and the Supreme Court Justices.
The audio recordings of all oral arguments heard by the Supreme Court of the United States are available to the public at the end of each argument week. The audio recordings are posted on Fridays after Conference. You may listen to the audio by going to http://www.supremecourt.gov/.
