Hickenlooper: Supreme Court Roe Repeal Shatters Freedom for Millions

Jun 24, 2022

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court overturning half a century of precedent in Roe v. Wade:

“For 50 years, the Constitution has protected a woman’s right to her own health care decisions. Today’s ruling shatters that freedom. It threatens not just a woman’s physical health and control over her own future, but it also threatens to put women and their doctors in jail.

“The vast majority of Americans support the right to an abortion. Republicans should join Democrats today and vote to keep politics out of reproductive health care decisions. Let’s follow Colorado’s lead and protect the right to choose.” 

Hickenlooper is a co-sponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify Roe v. Wade into law and guarantee equal access to abortion. He voted in favor of the bill in May and supports Colorado’s efforts to protect reproductive rights.
