Booker Outraged

Booker

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) issued the following statement:

“The Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade — repudiating nearly half a century of legal precedent in the process — would be an outrageous attack on Americans’ most fundamental rights.

“This opinion would strip people of the constitutional right to make their own medical decisions with their doctor, even in the most extreme and unthinkable circumstances, such as in the case of rape, incest, or if someone’s life is endangered by continuing a pregnancy.

“In recent years Republican officeholders have accelerated their longstanding effort to control, criminalize, and dehumanize people’s most personal reproductive health decisions. Already, 13 states have laws on the books that would automatically ban abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned. And it’s clear that Republicans in Congress are preparing to outlaw and criminalize all abortions nationwide.

“Abortion is health care, and it’s the federal government’s mandate to protect people’s most fundamental rights.”
