La Crosse, WI – Today, Rep. Ron Kind released the following statement on reports of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade:     

“Deeply personal health decisions should be made by a woman and her doctor – not the government. If finalized, this Supreme Court ruling would deny millions of women across Wisconsin and the nation the right to choose.  

“This ruling would also potentially jeopardize many individual privacy protections against government intrusion in our personal lives that were strengthened by or stem from Roe and later rulings based upon Roe, like the right to get married, use contraception, decide how to educate our children, and more.    

“The House has already voted to codify Roe v. Wade and the Senate must do the same.”
