WASHINGTON, DC – Last night, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) joined ABC News Live to discuss today’s Senate vote to protect the future of reproductive rights in the United States after recent news that the Supreme Court is moving to overturn Roe v. Wade. Last year, Senator Rosen helped introduce 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.
“I hope [the draft Supreme Court opinion is] a wakeup call for people, that we can’t rest. I can tell you that Mitch McConnell, if he gets the majority back, he has already signaled that he will do whatever it takes to install a nationwide abortion ban,” said Senator Rosen. “Again, rolling back protections that women have enjoyed over their own bodily autonomy for the last 50 years.”
