MADISON, WI – Today, U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement after the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court confirmed the authenticity of the draft ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked:

“If this draft is any indication of how the Supreme Court will formally rule on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Supreme Court will have lost the faith of all Americans. To rule against nearly 50 years of settled law to take rights away is despicable.

“Safe abortions will always be accessible to the wealthy. This ruling would take away bodily autonomy from so many, particularly affecting minority and low-income communities.

“To be clear: abortion is still the law of the land and will remain available as a healthcare choice until any rulings are officially announced. The fight for reproductive rights doesn’t end here. The Senate must codify Roe today and not a day later.”
