Secularists Laud Win for Women’s Healthcare
Phoenix, AZ - The following statement was issued today by Zenaido Quintana, Chair of the Secular Coalition for Arizona, in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to hear arguments in Isaacson v. Horne.
“We applaud and appreciate the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to hear arguments in Isaacson v. Horne, thus letting the decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals stand.
Abortion bans are not only bad policy because they prevent a woman from making her own personal, private decision about her health and medical care, but because they violate women’s constitutional rights.
Laws and regulations of women’s healthcare must be based on scientifically sound medical research and driven by a compelling government interest, not sectarian religious beliefs.”
The Secular Coalition for Arizona is a statewide, grassroots organization representing the Arizona nontheistic community – a vibrant and growing community of Arizonans who self-identify as atheists, agnostics, Humanists, freethinkers, and other labels of personal choosing.
