Sen. Lindsey Williams Release Statement on SCOTUS Roe v. Wade Decision

Pittsburgh, Pa. June 24, 2022 − Senator Lindsey M. Williams released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade:

I am completely devastated over today’s Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which has overturned the right to a safe, legal abortion in this country, but I am ready to fight back. I will always stand for a woman’s right to healthcare, and that includes abortion. Deciding if, when, and with whom to start or grow a family is a human right. I trust people to make the best decisions about their lives, families and their healthcare. This fight is about our right to privacy and our right to bodily autonomy.
