Here’s how some governors are responding after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade:
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul
Hochul tweeted in response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade: “Today the Supreme Court rolled back the rights of millions of Americans, disregarding their interests and — more importantly — their lives. Access to abortion is a fundamental human right, and it remains safe, accessible, and legal in New York.”
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds
“As Governor, I won’t rest until every unborn Iowan is protected and respected,” she said.
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu
Sununu issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade:
“Regardless of this Supreme Court decision, access to these services will continue to remain safe, accessible, and legal in New Hampshire.”
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer
Whitmer pledged to “fight like hell” after the Supreme Court decision.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott
“Texas will always fight for the innocent unborn, and I will continue working with the Texas legislature and all Texans to save every child from the ravages of abortion and help our expectant mothers in need,” he said.
Florida Gov. Ron. DeSantis
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis released a statement on Twitter Friday, saying, “By properly interpreting the Constitution, the Supreme Court has answered the prayers of millions upon millions of Americans.”
“The prayers of millions have been answered. For nearly fifty years, the U.S. Supreme Court has prohibited virtually any meaningful pro-life protection, but this was not grounded in the text, history or structure of the Constitution. By properly interpreting the Constitution, the Dobbs majority has restored the people’s role in our republic and a sense of hope that every life counts.”
