Russell Moore responds to Supreme Court decision in Texas abortion facilities’ regulations case

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, commented today on the U.S. Supreme Court decision denying the rights of states to enact common sense regulations on abortion in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt.    

“Today we lament another legal victory for the abortion lobby, coming at the expense of children, women, and families. Keeping abortion providers accountable should not be a political wedge issue. This ruling is further proof how much more work the pro-life movement has to do in the cause of life and human dignity.”

The Southern Baptist Convention is America’s largest Protestant denomination with more than 15.2 million members in over 46,000 churches nationwide. The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission is the SBC’s ethics, religious liberty and public policy agency with offices in Nashville, Tenn., and Washington, D.C.
