Johnson Comments on Supreme Court Ruling on Health Care Standards

WASHINGTON – Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said this Monday regarding the Supreme Court’s 5-3 decision on Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt:

“We can all agree that lawmakers have a responsibility to implement reasonable health and safety standards at places such as clinics. Doing so does not threaten any ‘right’ to abortion any more than implementing reasonable standards for other providers threatens health care at hospitals or doctors’ offices. The majority’s decision will have a chilling effect on state efforts to protect women from unsafe providers.”
