Bennet Statement on Report of Draft Supreme Court Opinion to Overturn Roe vs. Wade

Denver – Tonight, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement after learning about a report of a draft U.S. Supreme Court opinion to overturn Roe vs. Wade:

“I have long had concerns about the radical nature of this Supreme Court. If this draft opinion reflects the Court’s decision to overturn Roe, it represents an attack on a fundamental constitutional right enshrined in law for half a century. And it would drag us into a past when women faced horrific risks to their lives because they lacked the freedom to make their own health care choices.

“Assuming the Court issues an official decision consistent with this draft, the American people will have to fight to enshrine this fundamental right in our national and state laws.”
