Pro-life and abortion activists alike gathered outside the U.S. Supreme Court building today awaiting the hearing on an important abortion case out of Texas.
The U.S. Supreme Court case Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt was bought by abortion businesses against a pro-life Texas law responsible for closing abortion clinics that could not guarantee they could protect the health of Texas women. The law has been credited with saving the lives of more than 10,000 unborn children.
Among the pro-abortion speakers was the Rev. Debra Haffner, a Jewish Unitarian Universalist who “preached” in favor of abortion in front of the Supreme Court Building. Haffner is a former Planned Parenthood medical director and a pal of pro-abortion President Barack Obama.
She tweeted this morning:

Another abortion advocate claimed Haffner’s voice was one of the loudest in the crowd:

It’s interesting that Haffner referred to abortion as a moral decision because polling consistently shows that a majority of Americans believe abortion is morally wrong.
The stakes are high in the case. If the Supreme Court rules with abortion activists, common sense laws such as parental consent for minors and abortion clinic regulations could be wiped out, and full-fledged taxpayer funded abortions and partial-birth abortions could become common. Most Americans do not want to see these things come about, but these are the things abortion activists like Haffner are fighting for.
