Trahan Statement on the overturning of Roe v. Wade

Washington, June 24, 2022

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Lori Trahan (MA-03) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court released its decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade:

“The consequences of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe are devastating. Millions of women are losing access to safe, legal abortion care immediately because of anti-abortion state laws taking effect now that the opinion is official. Without any other option, many will risk their lives seeking out care through unsafe procedures.”

“That’s not the America we should want any of our daughters to grow up in, but it’s going to get worse if anti-choice extremists have their way. They’ve been working toward this decision for decades, and they’re already plotting to override state laws like the Roe Act so it’s illegal for every woman in America to control our own bodies.”

“The fight for abortion rights continues, and it’s one our daughters can’t afford for us to lose.”
