Rep. Karen Bass Statement on Roe v. Wade 40th Anniversary

Washington, D.C. – Today Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-CA) issued the following statement in recognition of the 40th Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling which established a woman's right to reproductive choice:

"Though forty years have passed since the Roe vs. Wade ruling, the battle still rages on over women being able to make their own reproductive health choices.

"On the anniversary of this momentous decision, we must remain vigilant in protecting a woman's right to choose, particularly in the face of efforts at the state level to limit the ability of women to access the services they need in making the best decisions for their health and families.

"With historic numbers of women serving in Congress, there is no better time to ensure that women's health and reproductive rights are respected and protected for future generations."
