Planned Parenthood Sues Over Montana’s ‘Cruel’ Pro-Life Laws

August 19, 2021

Planned Parenthood has filed a lawsuit against the state of Montana claiming that four pro-life laws signed into law by the governor are unconstitutional and “nothing more than poorly disguised attempts to chip away at Montanans’ access to safe and constitutional abortion.”

“Their combined effect is particularly cruel and prohibitive – pushing women seeking abortion later into pregnancy and also cutting off access to abortion at an earlier gestational age,” the abortion mill’s lawsuit stated.

The suit seeks to block laws which ban abortions after 20 weeks, require abortion providers to offer patients an ultrasound prior to terminating the pregnancy, require abortion-inducing drugs to be administered in person rather than through telemedicine, and ban Obamacare-subsidized insurance plans from providing coverage for abortion.

U.S. Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), founder and chairman of the Senate Pro-Life Caucus, condemned the lawsuit: “This lawsuit attempts to force an extreme abortion agenda on Montana. It is despicable that Planned Parenthood is seeking to undo the Montana legislature’s life-saving laws that prevent barbaric late-term abortions on babies who can feel pain, taxpayer funding for abortion, and reckless do-it-yourself abortions by mail.

“This is yet another example of how the abortion industry puts profits over patients, ignores science, and weaponizes the Courts to thwart the will of Montana voters,” Daines concluded.
