Schatz Statement On Supreme Court Decision To Overturn Roe v. Wade

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) today released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“The Republican-controlled Supreme Court has ripped away abortion rights from millions of American women. While this ruling won’t impact Hawai‘i, which legalized abortion in 1970, we must fight back to protect reproductive rights for women across the country. A woman’s fundamental right to make decisions about her own body are hers alone – not the government’s.”
