Sunday marks 50 years since the Supreme Court’s Roe decision guaranteed women had the right to reproductive freedom and abortion health care. However, Americans will not be celebrating this year because just 7 months ago, the Republican appointed Supreme Court overturned Roe and restricted women’s bodily autonomy.

Derrick Van Orden shares the blame for the overturning of Roe, and unfazed by the consequences of Republicans’ war on women, Van Orden wants to further limit reproductive freedom.  

Reminder, Van Orden: 

  • Claims he’s “100% pro-life” and compared abortion to “genocide.”
  • Voted against consideration of the Women’s Health Protection Act which would have codified the reproductive freedoms Roe v. Wade guaranteed before the Supreme Court ripped them away. 
  • And in just the first three weeks of the 118th Congress, Van Orden has already voted for anti-choice legislation that would limit health care access and potentially imprison doctors.  

DCCC spokesperson Tommy Garcia:
“As Americans grapple with a less free world that Republicans made by ripping away reproductive freedom, Derrick Van Orden is working to make it worse. Instead of working to restore the freedom Roe once guaranteed, Van Orden is actively working with his fellow MAGA House Republicans to ban abortion nationwide.”
