NDP reacts to United States Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade

TORONTO — MPP Jill Andrew (Toronto St. Paul’s) released the following statement on behalf of the NDP:

“I hear the anger, the fear and the sorrow pouring out today. The United States Supreme Court is dooming a new generation to go without modern health care, and without the right of each person to control their own body. That country is forcing another generation of women to fight the same battles their grandmothers did.

Women, non-binary folks, trans men and all people with uteruses in the United States and everywhere can count on the New Democrats for solidarity in that battle. The people who have been fighting protect these fundamental rights for decades will not rest. Abortion is health care. Choice is our right.”
