WOMEN'S POLITICAL CAUCUS OF NJ EXPRESSES HORROR & OUTRAGE OVER
LEAKED SUPREME COURT DECISION ON ROE
The Women’s Political Caucus of New Jersey (WPCNJ) expressed both horror and outrage over the leaked draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court, which appears ready to overturn a woman’s constitutional right to safe and legal abortions.
"Women have been fighting for equal rights and bodily autonomy far before Roe v. Wade was decided and this fight will continue unabated until a women’s right to privacy over her own healthcare decisions is properly enshrined.
Elections have consequences that can last for generations. While we have been prepared for this egregious decision to come down, this draft opinion is no more palatable, especially for the countless women who will be disproportionately harmed if this opinion is final. We must remain steadfast in promoting and supporting elected leaders who will defend a woman’s right to choose and not just pay lip service. WPCNJ is just as committed as ever to endorsing and electing pro-choice candidates and we will continue to work with our allies across the country who are equally committed to protecting women’s reproductive freedoms and access to safe healthcare."
WPCNJ, founded in 1972, is a chapter of the National Women's Political Caucus, a multi-partisan organization dedicated to increasing the number of women in elected and appointed positions in government, protecting reproductive freedom and promoting equal rights for women.
