VAN DREW ISSUES STATEMENT ON SUPREME COURT OVERTURNING ROE V. WADE
June 24, 2022 — Congressman Van Drew issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning Roe v. Wade.
“The United States Supreme Court has the sacred responsibility of interpreting the Constitution and upholding our nation’s founding principles free from political interference, which is exactly what it did today,” said Congressman Jeff Van Drew. “The integrity of the Court and its decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade must be respected, and we must come together to reject the latest attempts by those who disagree with today’s decision to abolish or pack the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court made the right decision to return this issue to the states so they can create their own laws regarding abortion. Here in New Jersey, we must continue to speak out and fight against Governor Murphy’s radical policies that call for taxpayer funded partial birth abortions.
“I am also calling on President Biden and House Democrats to forcefully condemn the Radical Left’s continued calls for a ‘Night of Rage’ and to take immediate action to protect pro-life clinics, some of which have already been graffitied and firebombed in the weeks leading up to this decision.”
