U.S. Senator Tina Smith Responds to Reported Supreme Court Draft Decision Overturning Roe

WASHINGTON, D.C. [05/02/22]—Today, U.S. Senator Tina Smith (D-Minn.) released the following statement in response to reports that the Supreme Court is planning to overturn Roe v. Wade:

“When I worked at Planned Parenthood in Minnesota, I saw firsthand how women had the capacity to make the right decisions for themselves. How dare Justice Alito and other Supreme Court justices think they know better. 

“There is nothing more American than the right to freedom, autonomy, and self-determination. Yet the Supreme Court is preparing to strip that away for half the country. 

“President Trump stole two Supreme Court seats. And Republicans will have to answer for their role in this attack on women’s freedom and equality. 

“Let’s get organized and get to work.”
