Rep. Kaela Berg Statement on Roe vs. Wade

Friday, June 24, 2022

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Today, the United States Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe vs. Wade in a landmark 6-3 decision. Representative Kaela Berg (DFL - Burnsville) released the following statement:

“This shocking decision takes away the right to bodily autonomy from millions of women across our nation. Make no mistake, this is a direct assault on human rights and a decision which will result in thousands of deaths and unsafe clandestine procedures. While Minnesotans have a protected right to abortion guaranteed by our constitution established by Doe vs. Gomez, Republican leaders will fight to take this right away. I will do everything in my power to protect our rights at the state level and fight to renew our rights nationwide. Abortion is healthcare, a right, and a personal decision and I will do all I can to make this a reality for all. ”
