WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar issued the statement below following the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade.
“For nearly 50 years, Roe v. Wade has protected a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, ensuring that women and their doctors are at the helm of these most personal choices – not politicians and the government.
“We will not give up. We will not back down. We will continue working to protect women’s access to care. And we will use our voices to make one thing loud and clear: we will not settle for a reality in which our daughters have fewer rights than their mothers and grandmothers."
