Today, DGA Chair and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, along with DGA Vice Chair Governor Laura Kelly and several other Democratic governors hosted a press conference in Minneapolis to mark the second anniversary of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, discuss the state of the ongoing fight for reproductive freedom, and lay the groundwork for the upcoming governor’s races where the fight for reproductive rights will remain front and center. View full footage from the press conference here.

Please see below for key quotes from the press conference: 

  • DGA Chair and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz: “Geography should not be destiny and geography should not be the thing that puts you at risk.”
  • DGA Vice Chair and Kansas Governor Laura Kelly: “We know that this issue is not a partisan issue, this issue is a human issue, one of great concern to the men and women of our states and our families.”
  • Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear: “In Kentucky, the Roe v. Wadeworld doesn’t exist anymore, and being pro-choice or pro-life isn’t a question… it’s a question of, do you believe victims of rape or incest deserve options? Do you believe parents with a nonviable pregnancy deserve options?”
  • North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper: “Democratic governors often are the last line of defense after the destruction of Roe v. Wade
  • Wisconsin Governor Tony  Evers: “Two million Wisconsin women lost that [reproductive] right. Two of them were my daughters, seven of them were my granddaughters.”
  • Hawaii Governor Josh Green: “When you allow women to lose their health care rights, that means you don’t care about them.”
  • Washington Governor Jay Inslee: “It’s the second anniversary of the Trump decision and the Trump assault on women’s rights which is a continuing clear and present danger to the rights of women and our whole families…”
