US Rep. Moore Hails Whole Woman’s Health SCOTUS Ruling
"This case is certain to have a significant and positive impact on women throughout the country and I applaud the Court for standing on the side of women."
In response to the Supreme Court of the United States’ ruling on Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement:
“I am thrilled by today’s Supreme Court ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. This case is certain to have a significant and positive impact on women throughout the country and I applaud the Court for standing on the side of women. Laws like Texas’ H. B. 2, a measure which made access to abortion care nearly impossible for many women, are simply ideological attempts to take away a woman’s right to make choices about her own body and future.
“I have long been an opponent of attempts to restrict a woman’s right to a safe and legal abortion. I commend the Supreme Court for reversing the decision of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, but our fight is far from over. As we celebrate this judicial victory, we must remain committed to defending our country against further efforts to undermine a woman’s autonomy over her body.”
