Senator Anwar Releases Statement In Response To Supreme Court Ruling On Abortion Rights And Access

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) released the following statement after the Supreme Court today ruled in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health to effectively strike down Roe v Wade, which has codified the right to seek an abortion for nearly 50 years.

“Today, our courts have decided that safe abortions will no longer be allowed in much of the country. This decision will lead to death, severe illness and complications due to unsafe abortions. The clock has been dialed back about 50 years.”
