Statement on Roe vs. Wade SCOTUS Ruling

Monday, June 27, 2022

Saint Paul, MN – Friday, the United States Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe vs. Wade in a landmark 6-3 decision. Representative Andrew Carlson (DFL - Bloomington) released the following statement:

“Friday’s Supreme Court ruling means Minnesota could soon be the only state in the Upper Midwest with access to reproductive rights for all women. Personal health decisions should be between a woman and her doctor, and I will work with my House DFL colleagues and Governor Walz to ensure extreme politicians don’t gut Minnesota’s reproductive freedoms.”
