WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Jahana Hayes (CT-05) released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling:

“While I am not surprised, I am deeply disturbed by the ruling of Supreme Court. This decision is horrifying and jeopardizes the healthcare of millions. For decades, we have seen the right to choose under attack, and today, those rights have been stripped away in one swift decision. Banning abortions will not stop abortions; it only compels women to risk their lives and health by seeking unsafe abortion care. Reproductive care and abortion access are essential. I will continue to fight so every person can make their personal health care decisions.”
