Rep. Maloney on Roe v. Wade Anniversary

Jan 22, 2017
Press Release

On the 44th Anniversary of the decision in the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, establishing a woman’s legal right to abortion, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12), a tireless advocate for women’s rights and reproductive choice, released the following statement:

“The alarmingly frequent attempts in recent years to curtail a woman’s constitutionally protected right to obtain an abortion and restrict access to comprehensive reproductive care are abhorrent. These actions, coupled with the vindictive and outrageous crusade to defund Planned Parenthood, a critical provider of comprehensive healthcare for millions of patients each year, have placed women’s health unnecessarily and disproportionately at risk. 

“On this anniversary, I remain committed to protecting every woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body and her family and ensuring access to healthcare.”
