DGA Statement on SCOTUS Ruling Overturning Roe v. Wade

From the Chair’s Desk

DGA Chair North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization today:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision rips away the fundamental right to reproductive care for millions of women and destroys a half-century of legal precedent. Where you live now determines your rights, and Democratic governors are the strongest and last line of defense to protect women’s access to safe, legal reproductive health care. 

“Our fight to elect Democratic governors this November is a fight to preserve the future of reproductive freedom in this country and the DGA will fight alongside these governors and candidates to get the job done.”
