Center for Reproductive Rights Statement on West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s veto of a measure which bans the most commonly used method of ending a pregnancy in the second trimester

For the third time in two years, Governor Tomblin has rightly vetoed a measure which robs women of safe options when they’ve made the decision to end a pregnancy,” said Kelly Baden, Director of State Advocacy. “We commend him for standing up to these political attempts to come between West Virginia women and vital health care services.”

Supreme Court Steps In To Protect Abortion Access in Louisiana

With only one Justice dissenting, the U.S. Supreme Court today agreed to suspend a recent ruling from the U.S Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit which would have shuttered three of the four remaining abortion clinics in Louisiana. Today’s order—which allows the two Louisiana clinics immediately forced to close by the Fifth Circuit’s ruling to reopen their doors and protects another clinic from imminent closure- comes two days after oral argument at the nation’s highest court in a challenge to a similar clinic shutdown law in Texas.
