US Supreme Court Decision Puts Women’s Health on the Ballot
For Immediate Release: June 22, 2022
(Charleston, WV) Today’s decision by the United States Supreme Court erases a half- century of legal precedent in the United States.
Mike Pushkin, West Virginia Democratic Party Chair said, “Make no mistake about it, this decision will make all abortions illegal in West Virginia with no exceptions to protect the life and health of the mother and no exceptions for the victims of rape and incest.”
“If the Governor and the legislature fail to act to preserve these common-sense exemptions, women will pay with their lives,” added Pushkin.
Danielle Walker, Democratic Party Vice Chair said, “This decision is just radical and wrong.”
Delegate Kayla Young said, “This draconian decision puts women’s healthcare on the ballot in November. We need to elect legislators who understand that reproductive decisions are best made by a woman and her physician, rather than the government.”
