Bennet Statement on Vote to Debate Women’s Health Protection Act

Washington, D.C. – Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement after voting to move the Women’s Health Protection Act to debate:

“After fifty years of settled law, the Supreme Court appears to be on the brink of overturning Roe vs. Wade and stripping women of their fundamental right to choose. The intensely personal choice about whether or not to have an abortion should be made by a woman and her doctor – not politicians. If individual liberty means anything, it has to include the freedom of every woman, no matter where she lives, to make her own reproductive and health choices.

“Today’s setback is disappointing, but not surprising. In the days ahead, we must continue the fight to codify the right to choose.”
