Madison, WI – Today, the US Supreme Court ruled, in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization to overturn Roe v. Wade. Sen. Stroebel (R – Cedarburg) issued the following statement:

“As Justice Alito said in his majority opinion, ‘The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion.’ This is as true now as it was in 1973 when a right to abortion was invented.”

For almost 50 years, the Supreme Court has taken an issue of profound importance with huge moral implications away from the democratic process. Americans who wished to protect unborn life were prohibited from using the democratic process to address what they considered to be one of the most important roles of all fifty states: to protect life. No longer, and it’s about time.”

“I respect those with whom I disagree on abortion, but many of my constituents and I believe profoundly that we should not permit the destruction of over 6000 human lives in utero every year in Wisconsin. Now, my colleagues and I can legislate to protect life like we do on other matters of tremendous state importance. I ran for office as a pro-life legislator and I will back that up with my votes and actions going forward.”

Senator Stroebel represents the 20th Senate District which includes parts of Ozaukee, Washington, Fond du Lac, Calumet and Sheboygan Counties.
