Statement on Roe Supreme Court Ruling

Monday, June 27, 2022

St. Paul, MN – Friday, the United States Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe vs. Wade in a landmark 6-3 decision. Representative Laurie Pryor (DFL - Minnetonka), released the following statement:

“This shocking decision by the Supreme Court does not change Minnesota’s constitutional protections for women and the very personal health decisions they make with their doctors. Extreme laws curtailing reproductive rights threaten the overall quality of health care we deeply value in Minnesota. Some politicians will increase their efforts to interfere with Minnesota laws in place, but I will continue working with my House DFL colleagues and Gov. Walz to provide safe health care options for all women.”
