Liberty Counsel Files Brief with US Supreme Court for Operation Rescue Citing Abortion Abuses

Washington, D.C. - Operation Rescue's research and data related to abortion abuses has been heavily cited in at least two amici curiae briefs that were filed with the U.S. Supreme Court on February 3, 2016, in a case that will consider the Constitutionality of a Texas abortion safety law known as HB2.

An amici curiae brief has been filed on behalf of Operation Rescue by the Liberty Counsel in Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt, Case 15-274.

The brief emphasizes that the Supreme Court should protect women, not abortion.

"We are gratified that at least two amicus briefs have drawn upon our data in support of their arguments that abortion poses serious risks to women and that the Abortion Cartel has whitewashed those dangers," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "The Texas law at issue is a correct and measured response to many of the abuses our own investigations have uncovered. We are thankful to the Liberty Counsel for preparing a brief on our behalf and to the American Center for Law and Justice for relying so heavily upon our data in support of protection for women."
