Statement from The Bronx Democratic Party and Chair Jamaal T. Bailey on Draft Supreme Court Decision Overturning Roe V. Wade


"The draft Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade is poised to undo decades of progress on reproductive rights and equality. If this ruling holds in the final decision, it will have dire consequences for the autonomy, safety, and wellbeing of people and care providers across the country and set a dangerous precedent for the preservation of all our fundamental rights. The right to choose is fundamentally an issue of equity. Reversing Roe will not end abortions, it will only make safe legal abortions further out of reach for those who have historically struggled with inequitable access.

The lives and futures of people everywhere are at stake. With abortion access and reproductive rights under attack in states across the country, the draft decision by the Court’s conservative majority is devastating and blatantly regressive. We refuse to go backwards. On behalf of millions of Americans and our collective future, we will not back down in this fight to safeguard and expand the fundamental right to choose in New York and across the country."
