STATEMENT: Rep. Neguse Responds to Supreme Court Decision Overruling Roe v. Wade

Washington, D.C. – In light of today’s Supreme Court decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Center case, Congressman Joe Neguse issued the following statement:   

“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court to overrule Roe v. Wade is deeply disappointing. The ruling, which departs from nearly fifty years of legal precedent, will deprive countless women across the country of the freedom to make deeply personal reproductive health decisions.”  

“Our work does not end today, and we cannot lose faith. House Democrats know the importance of protecting our freedoms and constitutional rights. That is why we passed legislation earlier this year to codify Roe v. Wade. While these efforts fell short in the Senate, we must continue to make every effort to secure passage of this critical legislation.”
