DNC Chair Rep. Wasserman Schultz Statement on the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

Washington, DC – DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement recognizing the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade:

“Today is the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade, solidifying a woman's autonomy to make her own decisions regarding her health and family.

“It is with a perverse sense of cruelty that Republicans would choose today for an attempt to chip away at these protections with a bill that would undermine women’s access to safe and affordable healthcare and shows what the GOP’s true priorities are. Time and again, the American people have soundly rejected extreme Republican efforts to insert themselves into health care decisions best left to women, their family, and their doctors.

“Congressional Republicans continue to waste taxpayer time and money by focusing on their outdated, ideological agenda instead of economic policies that will help the middle class. So long as Republicans insist on refighting these battles, Democrats will continue to stand up for women and defend access to health care.”
