U.S. Senate Candidate Charles Booker On Draft Scotus Opinion Overturning Roe V Wade

LOUISVILLE, KY – Tonight, in response to a leaked Supreme Court opinion suggesting that Roe v. Wade will be overturned as early as this month, U.S. Senate Candidate Charles Booker issued the following statement:

“This draft opinion confirms our worst fears. In a radical act of government overreach, the conservative majority of the United States Supreme Court has all but confirmed that it intends to overturn decades of settled legal precedent, which would deny millions of Americans their agency, humanity, life-saving healthcare, and reproductive freedom”. He continued, “The United States Supreme Court has tacitly agreed that the death of millions of women – our daughters, our mothers, our loved ones – is not too high a cost to pay to advance their radical, dangerous, and shameful political agenda. It is absolutely critical that the Senate Majority show the leadership to abolish the filibuster now, and codify the protections of Roe v. Wade into law.”
