National Women’s Political Caucus Statement on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court Decision
(Washington, DC – June 24, 2022 ) The National Women’s Political Caucus is sickened by the Supreme Court’s gut wrenching decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. We will not stand by and watch as women are stripped of their rights.
“Some say countless women in this country will die because of this decision. But we will count every single one of them. Their deaths will be laid at the feet of The Supreme Court and the religious right” said NWPC President, Donna Lent.
While we are uncertain of what will happen in the days to come, the expectation is that this will not be the last decision impacting basic human rights. The National Women’s Political Caucus will stay vigilant and prepared to fight. It will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose. The National Women’s Political Caucus will continue to recruit, train, elect, and support pro-choice women running for all levels of government and for women’s access to safe, legal abortion everywhere.
