DNC on Reporting that SCOTUS Plans to Overturn Roe v. Wade
May 3, 2022
The DNC released the following statement in response to reporting that the Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade:
“If this report is true and the Supreme Court votes to overturn Roe v. Wade, it would deal a devastating blow to reproductive rights and Americans’ fundamental freedom to make their own decisions about their health care and families. For decades, the Supreme Court has upheld precedent and protected access to safe, legal abortions, as well as the privacy of a decision made between women and their doctor. Now, due to extremist Republicans and conservative justices on the Supreme Court, women could lose access to the health care they need and that the overwhelming majority of Americans support.
“Make no mistake: reproductive rights will be on the ballot and this midterm election is more important now than ever before. Voters will make their voices heard, we will fight back with everything we have, and Republicans will have to answer for their party’s relentless attacks on Americans’ rights.”
