NCDP, Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic, & NARAL Pro-Choice NC Statement On SCOTUS Hearing Challenging Texas Abortion Ban

Today, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a pair of cases challenging the Texas abortion ban, a law that threatens Roe v. Wade and reproductive freedom across the country. Planned Parenthood Votes South Atlantic Executive Director Alison Kiser, NARAL Pro-Choice NC Advocacy and Organizing Manager Lynne Walter, and North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Bobbie Richardson released the following statement in response:

“As the U.S. Supreme Court hears oral arguments today, it is another reminder that abortion rights are under attack in the United States thanks to the Republican Party’s continued efforts to strip away access to health care and a person’s ability to make fundamental decisions about their bodies, families, and futures. Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans have packed the courts with conservative justices who are openly hostile to reproductive rights. In 2022, North Carolina voters understand the importance of electing leaders who will bolster the Democratic Senate majority in order to reclaim our courts with judges who reflect the diversity of our nation, will protect reproductive freedom, and will ensure North Carolinians, and their families have the power to make their own health care decisions.”
