St. Paul – Today, Minnesota State Representative Steve Drazkowski (R-Mazeppa) released the following statement:
“The United States Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is wonderful news. With their historic ruling, our nation’s highest court clearly rejected the idea that abortion is a right. This amazing pro-life victory will save lives, protect unborn children, and serve as a beacon for the values that built America.
When our nation was founded nearly 250 years ago, our Founding Fathers recognized that our Creator endowed us with the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The fundamental nature of our right to life has always been a part of the United States, and I am glad the Supreme Court has affirmed this with their decision.
We should celebrate this day and prepare for the mission in front of us. As a result of the 6-3 ruling, major decisions about the sanctity of life will now be made by legislatures across the country. Now is the time to redouble our efforts and make sure that we defend the unborn here in Minnesota and in all 50 states.”
Rep. Steve Drazkowski represents District 21B in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
