Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) released the statement below after the Supreme Court issued its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
“I’ve always believed a patient’s room is too small a space for a woman, her doctor and the United States government,” said Senator Reverend Warnock.“The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade ends a core protection for women to make their own health care decisions, and is a departure from our American ideals to recognize and protect basic rights. This misguided decision is devastating for women and families in Georgia and nationwide.”
“Across the country, states have already passed dangerous and uncompromising restrictions that put politicians in charge of health care, instead of women and doctors,” continued Senator Reverend Warnock.“Our work to restore the right of women to determine and access their own care must continue. I’ll never back down from this fight because women should be able to make their own health care decisions.”
Senator Warnock is a stalwart champion of protecting a women’s right to choose, including cosponsoring the Women’s Health Protection Act which would codify a women’s right to reproductive health care.
