The United States Supreme Court just issued a 6-3 decision in DOBBS v. JACKSON allowing individual States to determine their own abortion laws.
Here are some reactions from Florida politicians:
“The Supreme Court has returned the power to regulate abortion to the states. Now we need a pro-life plan for post-Roe America.”—Senator Marco Rubio
“The decision to strike down #RoeVsWade is extremely dangerous and tragic. I’m sick and tired of our basic, fundamental right to privacy being politicized. Because of today’s ruling, women will be forced to put their lives on the line, victims of rape and incest will be forced into pregnancy, and we cannot say we control our own bodies in this country. Our daughters and granddaughters have lost a right we fought so hard to protect. But let me be clear: Despite today’s decision, this fight is far from over.”—Congresswoman Val Demmings
“We will not roll back our rights. Let me say it again, so we’re clear. 🗣WE WILL NOT ROLL BACK OUR RIGHTS!”—Congresswoman Sheila Cherfilus McCormick
“This decision will have devastating impacts on women in Florida and across our country as nearly 50 years of constitutional protections for abortion come to an end.”—Nikki Fried
“This is an important ruling for the sovereignty of our individual states. Our office will continue working to defend state laws that protect life.”— FL Attorney General Ashley Moody
