11. this procedure is used to protect the mother
in order that her reproductive organs, or her own body and health
may not be damaged and she may go on in confidence to another pregnancy if she wishes.

The procedure is to benefit the woman, of course, but look, congress does not want to admit that women are more important than a monster she will birth, who is likely to die three hours later.

may be true that it is a paper victory, but it does bring to the forefront and establishes a precedent--ie that congress can regulate the family of a woman at will--this should not even be an issue in congress at all.
