“The very real probability that the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade is a death sentence for women in Connecticut and across the country. Making abortion illegal doesn’t make it go away; it makes it more dangerous, and in many cases, deadly.
For years Democrats have warned that elections have consequences. The stark reality is before us today and Republicans are directly responsible. Abortion will be on the ballot in November, and we will fight for candidates at every level of government who will make women’s reproductive rights a priority. For those of us who remember vividly when abortion was not legal, and those for whom choice has been a lifelong right, turning back the clock is not an option.”
