AMERICAN LIFE LEAGUE DECRIES SUPREME
COURT ‘ABORTION ON WHEELS’ DECISION


Judie Brown: “The acquisition of an abortion as a ‘constitutional right’ is a terrible setback for Arizona’s babies.”



WASHINGTON, D.C. (25 March 2008) — American Life League president Judie Brown sharply criticized the U.S. Supreme Court for refusing to overturn lower court rulings that require Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to provide transportation when pregnant jail inmates want abortions.

“The court ruling suggesting that the acquisition of an abortion is a ‘constitutional right’ is a terrible setback for Arizona’s babies,” said Brown. “Not only does this decision solidify the false notion that there is a ‘constitutional right’ to abortion, but the Supreme Court is now saying that inmates get a free ride as well.”

The U.S. Supreme Court offered no comment as it rebuffed Arpaio’s contention that providing inmates transportation to an abortion clinic forces taxpayers to pay for it.



“As abominable as this sounds, it is literally impossible to correct this situation without restoring personhood to the preborn child,” said Brown. “Those supporting abortion are in control of who is and is not in possession of the human rights we once thought were equally accessible to everyone. It’s time to correct this miscarriage of justice!”

American Life League was co-founded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots pro-life organization in the United States and it is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.
