Rodgers Statement on SCOTUS Leak


05.03.22

Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement on a leaked draft opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

“This leak of a confidential draft opinion will severely damage the public’s trust in the Supreme Court. It’s a deliberate attack on the integrity of the Court and its role as an independent judiciary. There must be a complete investigation into how this leak happened and who is responsible.

“At this very moment, Democrats and the Left are using this breach of trust as an opportunity to spread fear and force their discriminatory pro-abortion agenda on every American. Their Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act allows for abortion during any stage of pregnancy up until birth and for any reason, including on the basis of a baby’s gender, race, or disability. It allows for any late-term abortion regardless of the welfare of the mother or the baby.

“This extreme agenda is not the will of the American people, yet nearly every Democrat in the House and Senate supports it. This agenda must be stopped by a movement united behind our Constitutional and God-given right to life. Let’s be warriors for human dignity and human value. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all must remain the unshakeable moral bedrock of the greatest experiment in self-governance the world has ever known.”

Note: Nearly every Democrat in Congress is on the record supporting the Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act. It creates a national standard mandating all states offer abortions of unborn children for any reason and at any stage of pregnancy up until birth. The Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act is more radical than Roe. It must be stopped. CLICK HERE to read more about the Democrats’ Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act.
