NARAL Colorado Statement on SCOTUS Decision Upholding Abortion Rights

  • 0 Comments
  • by: ProChoiceCO

 

 

 

Today the Supreme Court released its ruling on Whole Women’s Health v Hellerstedt, the most critical abortion rights case in 20 years. In a 5-3 ruling, the court overturned the Texas law, HB 2, which restricted abortion rights.

You can read the background on the case here from the Center for Reproductive Rights:

http://www.reproductiverights.org/case/whole-womans-health-v-hellerstedt

According to NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Executive Director Karen Middleton, “The decision means TRAP bills like those repeatedly attempted by abortion opponents and anti-choice legislators in the Colorado General Assembly should stop. They are unconstitutional.

Colorado doesn’t have TRAP laws because thank to the work of NARAL, our Reproductive Health, Rights and Justice Coalition, and our allies in the legislature. We’ve defeated every TRAP bill that’s been introduced, most recently in the 2016 General Assembly. But this case has brought into focus just how critical the November election is for protecting the basic constitutional rights of Colorado women.

And it means Senator Cory Gardner needs to Do His Job and meet with Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

Colorado voters have said over and over we are a pro-choice state. NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado will continue the fight to protect and expand reproductive freedom for all by supporting legislation that respects our rights, electing officials who fight to preserve these rights, and supporting candidates who understand the importance of appointing judges who respect our rights.

We can’t let what happened in Texas happen here. And we won’t.“
