Congresswoman Gwen Moore Statement on Anniversary of Dobbs Decision

“Since the Supreme Court’s radical decision to repeal Roe v. Wade, we have seen women and girls in dire situations because of this ruling. We have seen young girls, who were victims of rape, forced to travel across state lines to access abortion care. We have seen women near death, experiencing sepsis with doctors in legal limbo afraid to care for their patients.

We have seen women hustle up money to fly across the country to receive the abortion care they need. Before Roe, I was one of those women who relied on a network of middle-class women to receive an abortion in New York. I never imagined that reproductive rights would be rolled back more than 50 years.

This decision is both extreme and dangerous.

What happened to the notion of freedom in America? What happened to protecting individual liberties?

These are rights fundamental to our nation’s values. This decision is in complete conflict with these values.

I am committed to restoring a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.

Reproductive rights are human rights.”
