Missouri Democrats Joint Response to

SCOTUS ruling

JEFFERSON CITY, MO. – Following the United States Supreme Court’s decision that overturns long established precedent under Roe v Wade, the Missouri House Democratic Campaign Committee and the Missouri Democratic Party released the following joint statement:

“Today will be a day branded into the memories of millions of Missourians as the day we lost not only our right to privacy, but our bodily autonomy.

Missourians know what’s best for them and their families, and today that has been stripped away from them. Today, the Supreme Court has ruled that Republicans can steal the right of survivors of rape and incest to determine what is best for them.

Republicans will not stop with abortion. They will continue to strip away access to birth control and contraception, in vitro fertilization, and same-sex marriage. Just this past session, Missouri Republicans proposed bills criminalizing the treatment of ectopic pregnancies and crossing state lines to have an abortion in a state where the right to privacy and bodily autonomy is respected.

The Missouri Democratic Party and the Missouri House Democratic Campaign Committee believe the decision if and when to start a family is a serious and personal decision, not one that any politician should be a barrier to.

We stand with the millions of Missourians who believe in the right to abortion and against government intrusion.”
