Rep. Deutch Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe

Today, U.S. Representative Ted Deutch (FL-22), Task Force Chair of the Pro-Choice Caucus, issued this statement following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“Today, the Supreme Court ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade and the constitutional right to abortion. But the right to bodily autonomy is not just a constitutional right. It is a human right. This much is clear: even as the relentless attacks on Americans’ most personal, most basic rights continue, we will fight to protect women’s reproductive rights and safety. Now is not a time for panic, but a time for focused action in order to protect, uplift, and support one another. Our work continues, together.”
