As part of the continuing fallout from last June’s Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt decision and as an example of pro-abortionists’ extremism, three different Planned Parenthood affiliates Wednesday joined the ACLU and the Center for Reproductive Rights in challenging laws in North Carolina, Alaska, and Missouri.

North Carolina’s law protects unborn babies 20 weeks gestational age and older with an exception for medical emergencies and if the woman’s life is at risk. There is an abundance of medical evidence that by this point the preborn is capable of experiencing unspeakable agony as she is torn apart.

Alaska’s law bars outpatient abortions after the first trimester of pregnancy.

Missouri’s law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges in a nearby hospital (in case of emergencies) and that abortion clinics meet the health and safety of standards of ambulatory surgical centers.
