Statement from Senator Linda Stewart on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) Opinion on Dobbs V. Jackson Women's Health Organization

Orlando – “Unconscionable! SCOTUS’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is a direct assault on the fundamental rights and lives of women and will do nothing to stop abortions! For nearly 50 years, women have been able to make their own private healthcare decisions without interference from the government. It is a gross misuse of the justice system, and an egregious attack on the rights of all women.”


“I trust women to be able to make their own decisions in life. I have worked tirelessly to protect the rights of women, and our right to bodily autonomy. This terrible news will not sway my dedication to that cause, and makes it clear now more than ever how desperately we need to enshrine these rights in law. With the decision on outlawing abortion now left up to the states it is important for legislators across the country to remember that making abortion illegal does not stop abortion, it only stops safe abortion.”
