Imagine with me for a moment. You are having a minor surgery, like your appendix is being taken out. You have the opportunity to go to a clinic down the street from your house but you find out the surgeon is not allowed to admit his patients to your hospital that’s 30 minutes away. That doesn’t mean he can’t get you in to a hospital, but it does mean if something happens during surgery and you need a hospital he has to go through a lot of red tape and permissions before you would be admitted. You also find out with a little bit of research that this clinic is not up to the standard that a surgical care center needs to be. What would you decide? Would you rather have the surgery where you know the doctor is competent, qualified, and committed to your care? In a place you know has been inspected and is clean? It’s a no-brainer, right?
Today…March 2…right now…while you are reading this article, the most important Supreme Court case since Roe vs. Wade is being argued. This case had to go all the way to SCOTUS to force abortionists at abortion mills to have admitting privileges to the nearest hospital as well as raise their clinics to a standard required by law for a surgical center. The name of this case is Hellerstadt vs. Whole Woman’s Health. If this case stands, the abortion clinics across Texas will dwindle to about 9 or 10. That means there are about a dozen currently operating in sub-par conditions.
The pro-abortion advocates insist these requirements would place an undue burden on women to drive farther or wait longer for their abortion. Why should women be subjected to doctors who may not be competent, and have surgeries in clinics less standardized than vet clinics and tattoo parlors? There are actually people fighting to make sure women get this atrocious treatment.
If you are reading this article on Wednesday, March 2, could you please take a moment and pray right now for this case? It’s time abortion clinics are held to the same standard, giving women the care they deserve!
