(Washington, D.C.) – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) released the following statement on the 38th anniversary of the historic Supreme Court decision to constitutionally guarantee access to safe and legal reproductive choice in the United States.
“As we mark the 38th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade we must remember that reproductive choice is still at risk in this country, and we must do all we can to protect it.
“Today is not only a day for reflection, but also a day to look forward to work still to be done. The anniversary of this decision reminds us that we can never back down from this fight. Ensuring women have access to quality care and choices requires not only protecting the progress we’ve made, but also continuing to move forward.”
