WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) released the following statement following reports that the U.S. Supreme Court is preparing to strike down Roe v Wade.
“If reports that the Supreme Court is moving to overturn Roe v Wade are true, this would have dire consequences for women’s health and reproductive freedoms across our country,” said Senator Rosen. “These unprecedented, rigid, and harmful attacks on women’s rights cannot go unanswered. Now more than ever, I will continue fighting to ensure the right to choose is protected, including by codifying Roe into law.”
Senator Rosen has been a leader in fighting for women’s reproductive rights. She helped introduce and voted in support of the Women’s Health Protection Act, legislation to protect the Constitutional right to access reproductive health care and provide a safeguard against dangerous state-level abortion bans and restrictions. Last year, Senator Rosen signed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to uphold Roe v. Wade.
