Luján Statement on Supreme Court Ruling Overturning Roe v. Wade

Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after the decision of the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade:

“Today’s decision by the conservative majority on the Supreme Court has shamefully taken our country backwards – undermining nearly 50 years of legal precedent and putting the most vulnerable at risk by rolling back women’s reproductive rights. This decision shows how out-of-touch extremist conservative justices and politicians are with the American people who overwhelmingly support Roe

“The consequences of this decision represent a dangerous attack on women’s health care and an attack on freedom and privacy that will empower judges and politicians to overrule the private health decisions made by a woman and her doctor.

“New Mexican women should know this dangerous decision will not go unchallenged and that safe abortions are still legal in New Mexico. I’m committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose and this fight is far from over. Senate Democrats must be willing to use every tool at our disposal – including abolishing the filibuster – to ensure the right to an abortion is once again protected by law.”
