May 11, 2022

Leaked draft Supreme Court opinion shows Court is poised to completely overturn Roe v. Wade

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper released the following statement today after Senate Republicans refused to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify Roe v. Wade into law:

“Five Supreme Court justices are set to strip a woman of the right to make her own health care decisions, including the choice to have an abortion.

“Every sitting justice agreed during their nomination that Roe is settled law and two-thirds of Americans support this fundamental right. It’s outrageous they’ll now throw out 50 years of precedent.

“Republicans voted today to put politics between women and their doctors. We aren’t giving up; women’s rights must be protected.”
