Rep. Liz Boldon Statement on Roe vs. Wade

Friday, June 24, 2022

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Today, the United States Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe vs. Wade in a landmark 6-3 decision. Representative Liz Boldon (DFL - Rochester) released the following statement:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is devastating and while it may have been expected, it still comes as a shock to millions across the country.  This is a clear assault on human rights and a decision which will result in thousands of deaths and dangerous under-the-table procedures. While abortion is still legal in Minnesota, this right is being attacked by state Republican leaders. I will do everything I can to maintain women's right to choose and have autonomy over their bodies. Abortion is healthcare, a right, and a personal decision, and I will continue to do all I can to make it legal and accessible to all.”
