Sen. Cabrera Releases Statement in Response to Supreme Court Ruling on Abortion Rights and Access

HARTFORD, CT – Today, state Senator Jorge Cabrera (D-Hamden) 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.

“The Supreme Court decision today overturning almost 50 years of established law threatens the freedoms of women everywhere,” said Sen. Cabrera. “We must stand together to protect the right to choose. Although this is a somber time, it is not the end of this fight. In Connecticut, we will continue to ensure the right to choose is protected no matter what.”
