Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Roe v. Wade

Today’s long anticipated and devastating ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, effectively striking down Roe v. Wade, reverses nearly 50 years of precedent and decades of progress for women, trans men and non-binary people. The vast majority of Americans understand that reproductive rights are critical to a safe and equitable future for all people. When we lose the right to control our own healthcare decisions, people of color and low-income people are disproportionately affected. We stand with our member organizations and the majority of people across our country who support safe access to abortion and we will continue to fight for equitable policies and access to abortion for those who need it. We are deeply concerned about the lasting implications of this decision and what it means for the sanctity of other Constitutional rights. As always, we remain vigilant in our fight for equity and justice for all.
