Judy's Statement

Roe v. Wade Overturned – Judy Issues Statement

On Friday, the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, setting back women’s rights in this county by almost 50 years. Judy issued a statement on the decision stating, “I will always stand and fight for women’s rights to make their own healthcare decisions and continue to move us forward. Forward means a place where government isn’t in our doctor’s office directing our choices. It means not revoking and rolling back Minnesotans’ long-recognized rights. It also means addressing the many crises we are facing, like disparities in infant and maternal health, and the devastating cost of healthcare.”

She continued, “I have spent my career confronting difficult challenges head-on. In the legislature I will do what I do on every shift as a paramedic — roll up my sleeves and get to work. The people of Senate District 41 can count on me to be on the front lines of the fight to protect a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body.”
