Rep. Aguilar’s Statement on the Supreme Court Decision Overturning Roe v. Wade

“The decision overturning Roe v. Wade rolls back more than fifty years of settled law and ensures that girls growing up in America will have less freedom than their mothers and grandmothers. Make no mistake, right-wing Republicans are going to use today’s decision to implement a nationwide abortion ban and even go after access to birth control in many places. We cannot let that happen. The lives of millions of women are at risk. The Senate must pass legislation codifying the right to seek an abortion into law, even if it means getting rid of the filibuster.”
