New Huffington Post Op-Ed on Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt One-Year Anniversary

New Huffington Post Op-Ed on Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt One-Year Anniversary
Huffington Post Op-Ed.

In a recent Huffington Post op-ed, TxPEP investigator Dan Grossman looks back at the SCOTUS ruling in the Texas abortion case, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, when the court ruled the state could not create an undue burden on women seeking abortion.

“Whole Woman’s Health was won by smart lawyers who made the legal arguments and by brave plaintiffs who took personal and financial risks to challenge this law. It was also won by courageous women who told their abortion stories and Latina immigrants from the Rio Grande Valley who spoke up about their lack of access to basic health care, all of whom refused to be stigmatized by a society that usually ignored them. And it was won by data.”

Read the full op-ed on the TxPEP website or directly on the Huffington Post.
