Supreme Court Reverses Roe in Devastating Decision

Written by Brian Dixon, Senior Vice President for Governmental and Political Affairs | Published: June 24, 2022


The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is horrifying and infuriating and exactly what we feared when the Trump administration rushed three ultraconservative justices onto the bench.

We feared this outcome when Mitch McConnell stole a seat on the Court for Neil Gorsuch. And when he ignored credible accusations that Brett Kavanaugh was a sexual predator. And again, when he jammed through the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett just days before the election that turned out of office both Donald Trump, who nominated her, and the McConnell majority that confirmed her.

There is now no question that the McConnell-Trump Court is a threat to human rights and an affront to common decency. The majority of justices are little more than partisan apparatchiks dedicated only to consolidating power in the hands of their patrons.

We are appalled and outraged by the six members of the Supreme Court who voted to rescind the basic human right to bodily autonomy for half the country’s population. And we remain committed to fighting for abortion rights for all Americans, regardless of their state of residence, insurance coverage, or financial means.

The Supreme Court has made an egregious and unforgivable error in its decision today. We will fight back on all fronts until legal abortion is once again the law of the land.
