Rosen Statement on Supreme Court Decision Regarding Women Receiving Emergency Reproductive Care

LAS VEGAS, NV – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) released the following statement after the Supreme Court released a decision in the Idaho v. United States and Moyle v. United States cases. She recently blasted anti-choice extremists for pushing to overturn the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) in order to deny women access to emergency reproductive care.

“While today’s action wasn’t the one we feared most, I’m extremely concerned that the Supreme Court refused to reaffirm the right of women to access emergency reproductive care and has left the door open to future attempts to overturn it,” said Senator Rosen. “This case is part of the anti-choice strategy that extremists have used since they pushed to overturn Roe v. Wade. They won’t stop until they have full control of women’s health care decisions, which is why I’ll keep fighting to restore Roe in federal law.”

Senator Rosen continues fighting back against efforts to restrict access to reproductive rights. She recently voted to protect women’s constitutional right to access birth control and helped introduce a bill to safeguard the ability to start or grow a family by establishing a legal right to access IVF and other assisted reproductive technology. Senator Rosen helped introduce the Let Doctors Provide Reproductive Health Care Act to protect doctors and other health care professionals from being prosecuted for providing reproductive care to their patients. She also helped introduce the Women’s Health Protection Act to protect reproductive freedoms in federal law.
