Press Release:

August 5


    The Indiana legislature took a devastating step as a result of the Supreme Court's extreme decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and eliminate women's constitutionally-protected right to abortion. And, it's another radical step by Republican legislators to take away women's reproductive rights and freedom, and put personal health care decisions in the hands of politicians rather than women and their doctors.

    Yesterday's vote, which institutes a near-total abortion ban in Indiana, should be a signal to Americans across the country to make their voices heard. Congress should also act immediately to pass a law restoring the protections of Roe - the only way to secure a woman's right to choose nationally.

    Until then, President Biden is committed to taking action to protect women's reproductive rights and freedom, and access to care they are afforded under Federal law.

    Karine Jean-Pierre

    With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
      Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
      No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
      This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.

    With respect to the leaked opinion not yet written for ratification regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's revisiting the original decision of Roe v Wade, whence now nonstop protests have erupted in neighborhoods where U.S. Supreme Court justices live, exhibiting the firm intent to intimidate these officers of the highest court in the land: What action should the federal authorities take?
      Do nothing ... Protests are a fixture of a free society.
      Enforce the law ... Federal codes exist to prohibit any intimidation through the pubic harassment of federal judges, especially Supreme Court justices.
      I have no idea, however, northern Virginia School Board Members must be shielded from protests at all costs.
