-- NARAL Pro-Choice America to Hold Conference Call on the Eve of Oral Arguments for Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood of Northern New England
-- What's at stake for the states if the Court sides with the position backed by the Bush administration?
NARAL Pro-Choice America will host a conference call for the media on Tuesday, Nov. 29, one day before the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments for Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.
NARAL Pro-Choice America, NARAL Pro-Choice New Hampshire and 24 other state-based affiliates filed a "friend of the court" brief in the in the Ayotte case. Building on years of research and lobbying on state legislation, NARAL Pro-Choice America and its affiliate network argues that the Court should not allow a dangerous precedent that would open the floodgates for legislatures to enact abortion restrictions without exceptions to protect women's health.
The Bush administration voluntarily filed a legal brief in support of the state's position -- which undermines the core protections of Roe that the Court has upheld for more than 30 years.
