DNC on SCOTUS Striking Down Louisiana’s Restrictive Abortion Law

DNC Chair Tom Perez, DNC Women’s Caucus Chair Lottie Shackelford, and DNC Vice Chair and Louisiana Democratic Party Chair Karen Carter Peterson released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld abortion rights in Louisiana: 

“It’s a good day for freedom. Again, Republicans tried to attack access to safe and legal abortion at the Supreme Court, and again they were shot down. This critical victory is the result of tireless grassroots organizing and advocacy. But our battle is far from over. Republican leaders will continue to go after the rights of women and anyone seeking reproductive care to make decisions about their own bodies, their own families, and their own futures. In fact, two of today’s votes against abortion rights came from Trump’s Supreme Court appointees, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Democrats are doing everything in our power to flip the Senate, defeat Donald Trump, and make sure Roe remains the law of the land. And we will continue fighting to protect every American’s right to reproductive freedom by electing Joe Biden as the next president of the United States.”
