On Monday, Ted Cruz loudly denounced the Supreme Court decision to strike down Texas House Bill 2 from 2013 “that required all Texas facilities performing abortions to meet hospital-like standards — which include minimum sizes for rooms and doorways, pipelines for anesthesia…”
Cruz stated that the SCOTUS decision is political,
“Unfortunately, the Supreme Court sided with abortion extremists who care more about providing abortion-on-demand than they do protecting women’s health.”
President Obama, on the other hand, lauded the decision. He tweeted that “[E]very woman has a constitutional right to make her own reproductive choices…”
Every woman has a constitutional right to make her own reproductive choices. I'm pleased to see the Supreme Court reaffirm that fact today.

Ted Cruz offered a contrast to Obama’s sentiments:

Read Cruz’s statement here:
The #SCOTUS ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt is profoundly disappointing. Texas enacted HB 2’s commonsense health standards to ensure that women receive safe care.
Unfortunately, the Supreme Court sided with abortion extremists who care more about providing abortion-on-demand than they do protecting women’s health.
This decision will not silence our fight to protect the most helpless and innocent among us, nor will we cease our efforts to protect women from an abortion industry that prioritizes profit margins over improving the safety and health of Texas women. We will continue to stand resolutely to defend unborn life because we know that every life is a gift from God, and without life there is no liberty.
Trump, on the other hand tweeted on Monday that CNN is “all negative” when it comes to him:
.@CNN is all negative when it comes to me. I don't watch it anymore.
