For Our Future Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Roe v. Wade
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, For Our Future Executive Director Sky Gallegos issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that eliminates the constitutional right to abortion established almost 50 years ago in Roe v. Wade.
“Today’s decision is a devastating unraveling of freedom. By abandoning decades of precedent and re-writing the Constitution, this is the first time in nearly 50 years that the Supreme Court will allow states to ban abortion at will. Make no mistake, this is a part of a broader effort by Republicans and the conservative majority on the Supreme Court to ban abortion, dismantle the right to make one’s own decisions about health care, and limit the rights of women across our country.”
“Reproductive rights are workers’ rights and are core to the struggle for civil rights and economic justice. For Our Future stands with our allies who have been and continue to be on the frontlines of the fight to protect the right to access safe, legal abortion.”
