Moulton Statement on Leaked Supreme Court Opinion on Overturning Roe vs. Wade

SALEM, Mass.— Tonight, Congressman Seth Moulton issued the following statement on reports the Supreme Court has voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.

If tonight’s reports are true, American women are on the brink of losing a fundamental right to make crucial healthcare decisions for themselves.  This decision would take women’s rights back 50 years and put millions in danger by bringing back unsafe back-alley abortions.

“Decisions like this are the result of a politicized Supreme Court that puts ideology ahead of our constitutional rights. We will work to correct this injustice if it is carried out.”
