Washington, DC—On March 4 the United States Supreme Court heard Oral Arguments in the case of June Medical Services v. Russo. Americans United for Life experts were on the scene both inside and outside the Court.

“With the June Medical Services v. Russo case, the U.S. Supreme Court has the opportunity to protect women’s health by affirming the patient protections at stake from the state of Louisiana.” Said Steven H. Aden Chief Legal Officer & General Counsel at Americans United for Life. “I was in the Supreme Court today with the justices as the parties argued this vitally important case. I am confident that the exemplary legal team from Louisiana, led by Attorney General Jeff Landry and Solicitor General Liz Murrill, gave the Justices everything they need to ensure that all women, no matter their circumstances, will receive the high-quality, consistent medical care they deserve. I am optimistic the Court will make the right decision.”

Catherine Glenn Foster, President & CEO of Americans United for Life helped lead the rally outside the court saying, “The rally in support of Louisiana’s right to protect their citizens was a victory for Americans of all walks of life. Americans are united in the conviction that health and safety standards designed to protect women and girls are not only constitutional, but are also urgently necessary. Today, legislators, physicians, and even an NFL football player came together in solidarity to put patients over profits, in our effort to protect women and protect life.”
